  • Super laid back and cozy


    We had a great time just kicking back and going for little walks out behind the property with our dog. This is an unusually dog-compatible place! The owners are very responsive, the place was clean and well-stocked, everything worked fine. If you need serious broadband, this might not be the place, but surfing and a little streaming was fine. And they don't encourage using the woodstove a lot. Overall we had a great time and would love to go back.

  • Beautiful time in the Badlands


    The bunkhouse provides a warm, cozy atmosphere against the backdrop of high desert wilderness. A quick 15 minute jaunt to town, allows for all the conveniences of the city with the peace and quiet of country living. Allison, the property owner, was welcoming as could be and her gorgeous art adorns the walls of the festive saloon quarters. Thumbs and paws way up for this spot!

  • Beautiful Property


    We loved our stay at the Bunkhouse. Allison was great and wanted to make us feel at home. We enjoyed letting our dog run on the off-leash trails that are just behind the Bunkhouse. The distance from downtown Bend is far enough away to enjoy a retreat, but close enough for a quick drive into town. Would definitely recommend!

  • Amazing week


    Fantastic time in the bunkhouse. We stayed a week in September. It was amazing for many reasons, spacious, comfortable, super clean, quiet, gorgeous inside and out. Just experiencing the animals and landscape was wonderful, but the starry nights and the quiet days when only birds were chirping made it extra nice. Everyday we walked in the morning and in the afternoon on the trails and up and down the drive. Peaceful.

    Comfy bed, everything we needed in the kitchen to cook full dinners as well as breakfast and lunch.

    Allison was very nice, informative, personable and immediately available should we need anything, which we didn't.

    Our favorite restaurants in town for the Drake and Boxwood.

    We also did day trips to Crater lake, Smith Rock, and Sisters.

    I can't wait to return next year.

  • Amazing Home


    Everything from beginning to end of this trip was great. Host Allison has wonderful communication and her welcome packet for her guests is so detailed, I was very impressed. The home is amazing, so clean, with lots of amenities and her own artwork. Her spouse Bryan came to say hello and we had a wonderful conversation about the ranch. You really just need your clothes and food to come and relax here, everything else is provided. We brought our two small dogs and when they say dog-friendly they mean it. We felt very welcomed here with our fur babies. We saw lots of wildlife: owl, rabbits and lizards. Beautiful home and property. We definitely would return. Thank you Allison and Bryan!
