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 house and the property in general are so amazingly beautiful!!! The house is week equipped and we wanted for nothing. He also had a great spa our back and numerous river toys. We enjoyed using those. The river is filled with slug for quite a ways out, but that's okay. Not his fault at all and didn't effect me at all becasue I didn't actually get in the water per say. We wakes up the street to right past the rapids and floated back to our house. In my float toy I didn't even touch the slug, so no big deal. The house is soooooo large and so incredible. The yard is like a beautiful park. Would definitely return.
The Home was in perfect shape and beautifully decorated, just as the pictures show. Right on the Deschutes River.
The amenities were too numerous and sporting equipment (bikes,canoe,kayak, etc)
were more than sufficient. We enjoyed the time we spent there along with the location being close to the adorable city of Bend
which offers many restaurants and shops..
Within a short ride there are numerous activities, and parks available, also so many small towns to explore.
We will be back!
Very well maintained and supplied with all the essentials. Convenient location for all Bend area attractions.
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!
