  • Ranch Retreat


    What a fun place! The house was as fun as it looks in the photos. Allison was a great host. We had a great time hanging out with the horses and sheep, biking along the canal, and hiking out in the Badlands. It was close, but not too close, to Bend.

  • Amazing property and location


    I took the kids (15,18) on a road trip with the purpose to visit central Oregon. We brought our dog and this was the perfect location. BLM land for walks and central location of the house for daily trips to visit sister cities. Allison was great and gave some great places for us to visit. Thank you for the memories

  • 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!
