Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Bill, after a prior career in business consulting, has been active in real estate development, construction and rentals for nearly 30 years. He is excited to finally apply his first degree in Forestry to the 640 acres of trees at Tumalo Lake. Tracy, along with her interior design and 'Inn Keeper' responsibilities, is a Global Director in the Clinical Research field.
Why the Owner Chose Bend: Bill & Tracy, during a 2005 visit to Bend, fell in love with the Tumalo Lake property and the original 5 cabins which had been built in the 1930s. After moving to Bend in 2007, several years were spent obtaining necessary land-use and building permits and trenching 1 1/2 miles to bring in electricity and phone. Construction began in 2009. The Hillside Cabin was completed in October, 2011, the Creekside Cabin June, 2012, the Lakeside East Cabin June, 2013, and the Lakeside West Cabin in October, 2014. Eventually a main lodge will also be built. We feel this is a very special property and believe you will feel the same way after visiting.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Central Oregon, and Bend, Oregon in particular, are well reknown for both Summer and Winter sports. Enthusiasts from near and far visit for hiking, biking (road and mountain), skiing (Nordic and Alpine), snow shoeing, boating, fly fishing, rock climbing, etc. Tumalo Lake Lodge is ideally situated in the middle of the nationally known 'Phil's Trail' mountain biking trail system. In Winter, these and other trails and shelters form an extensive snow shoeing/x-country trail network. Tumalo Falls (97 feet tall) is a 3-4 mile hike away. Tumalo Creek, 2 miles away, affords fly fishing opportunities. While staying at Tumalo Lake you are staying on a private square mile of forested land surrounded by the Deschutes National Forest but still only 12 miles to downtown Bend. We began stocking Tumalo Lake with Rainbow Trout in 2013 and guests this past Summer were catching 16-18' beauties. This Winter, weather permitting, we will be making an ice skating rink on Tumalo Lake.
There is no other place so close to Bend affording such quality accommodations, privacy and natural beauty.
