If you’re coming to Bend for a vacation, or business, why stay anywhere else! We will accommodate you even if it’s just you and a guest. This spectacular home is on the Deschutes River just North of downtown Bend on the mile long stretch of river just below Pioneer Park. This slow moving and breathtaking section of the Deschutes river is an Icon to those that live here and enjoyed by all that hike along her banks. The house has a private dock, kayaks and a canoe for your paddling enjoyment right off the back lawn.
The home has 6 bedrooms, 4 gas fireplaces, 5 full bathrooms, outdoor hot tub with river setting, indoor jetted tub with river view. There is also a steam shower in one of the upstairs baths. With 4 king sized beds, 2 double beds and 4 single beds, the home can sleep up to 14 comfortably. The gourmet kitchen is stocked with every utensil you could imagine, you won’t have to look twice to find what you need.
Walk minutes to downtown Bend or get on your bike and head to your favorite pub or restaurant. If you are here on business, you will be excited to know that the convention center is just a short distance away on the other side of the river, within 5 minutes walking distance. The Rivers Edge Golf course is also directly across the river and within minutes from the home. Take a 2 or 4 mile run around the river trail which loops from the home, through Rivers Edge golf course, up the western bank of the river and the back along the eastern banks of the river. If you’re a water enthusiast, get into one of the kayaks, or canoes and paddle up river to the first street rapids and back, you’re sure to see otters, swans and many ducks along the way. After you’re done exploring the outdoors, jump into the hot tub or just sit on the deck and look out at the spectacular view.
There are (7) TV’s, two with surround sound, DVD, VCR and stereo with built in speakers throughout. The kitchen has a commercial range with 4 burners, 1 griddle, 1 grille and 2 ovens, two dishwashers, a refrigerator freezer, microwave and convection oven along with a wine fridge in the island. The rec. room has a pool table, large deluxe feather cushion sectional for watching your favorite movies and a wet bar with sink and refrigerator. There is also a large gas BBQ on the upper deck right off the kitchen and dining room.
Your stay also includes the use of the 40’x30’ garage space which you can get 4 auto’s into and many bikes on the wall hooks if needed. (we do supply several cruiser bikes for your use as well as three Scott mountain bikes, SM, MD, LG).
I can go on and on, but the place speaks for itself. Please, just take care of it, enjoy your stay, and come back to visit us again!

Bend has been my home for over 30 years and my wife and I plan on staying here indefinitely. The climate here is perfect for all the outdoor activities we like to partake in such as bicycling, skiing, golfing and playing tennis. Having a peaceful home on the river has made raising our children a wonderful experience as they have enjoyed kayaking, fishing and swimming in the river for many years. We are happy that we built a home that will make such a fantastic vacation rental and I am sure you will enjoy it as much as we have.
Doug Smith purchased this lodge in 2001
The entire week was great. The house was a dream! Plenty to just there! Fabulous location to downtown, airport, Smith Rock, Ice Caves........
We all hope to return next year if not sooner!
There was nothing you needed to get. The house was totally stocked. Bikes, water rafts,hot tubs, pool table, ping pong table, tv's.........
Just add groceries, family and friends!
I held an art retreat in Doug's expansive garage. We loved the house, especially the hot tub at night after a day of creating. Great location, easy access to stores, downtown and the view was wonderful. Highly recommend staying here. We'll be back!
Beautiful home on a beautiful property. The house is nicely stocked with everything you need and would want.
This house was absolutely perfect for a group weekend away -- and the house was so amazing that two separate cars of guests got halfway up the driveway, called us because we had already checked in, and just had to confirm that they were, in fact, in the right place because the exterior alone is amazing. Walk through the front door, and jaws immediately drop. The house itself has a great, open living area and kitchen that is great for group or family gatherings in one place. The kitchen is well stocked and perfect for a group meal, either buffet style or sitting at the large table and bar area to eat together. The house is large enough and has a great downstairs area, though, that it is easy to get away for some private time if you need.
The location was amazing -- the back deck is equipped with a hot tub, hammock, and fire pit for relaxing and enjoying the view of the river. If you're feeling more adventurous, there are paddleboards, kayaks, and a rowboat at your disposal. The bikes in the garage are perfect for exploring downtown Bend, though many places are easily walkable from the house. Bikelocks and helmets are provided, so security of both the rider and the bicycle are not an issue.
Our group loved everything about this house -- the location, the amenities, and the very reasonable price for rental. Not only will I be booking again, but 3 other people in our group asked for the link so they could reserve it for future trips as well. Thank you for a wonderful weekend, we are all looking forward to our next trip!
LOVED everything about this place!! The home is absolutely beautiful with everything you could think of needing for a fun, relaxing weekend in Bend. A gorgeous back deck overlooking the water includes a fire pit, hammock and grill and a fully stocked (pots, pans, utensils - not food-wise) open kitchen are great for a bigger group. There were paddleboards, kayaks, bikes and a hot tub all available for use and super accessible. There are PLENTY of beds and bathrooms for a large group to enjoy and have some privacy also. There's a running path along the water for those looking to get some exercise in,too. You're also walking distance to downtown Bend so getting around without a car is doable when the weather is nice.
