Great time - Fantastic Kitchen - Outstanding Hosts
"Craig was an outstanding and excellent host for this property. Everything was well laid out, kitchen and usability was fantastic (everything I needed to make every meal and then some!) and the location to downtown Bend was very good. A couple of blocks away.. Craig answered all of my questions very promptly and I would rent from him again if given the chance.."

Quiet retreat for our special family reunion guests
"We rented the combined three properties for a family reunion in May 2015. We used the Mountain View Retreat as the "quiet house" for Grandma, aunties and uncles; the Lodge as the "hub" where all meals were served; and the Cottage as "overflow" for the younger crowd.
The Retreat (as we called it) was quiet, spacious and comfortable--a perfect option for the guests we assigned to sleep there. We filled the fridge and kitchen with supplies for our guests, but served all of our meals out of the Lodge (a short 3 minute walk from the Retreat). It was clear that the kitchen came fully stocked with appliances, dishes, and more than we needed. Guests were envious of the aunt and uncle we put in the Main Bedroom/Bathroom because of how beautiful the master bath was! Guests told me that the beds were very comfortable, heat was adjustable in each room, and the showers were perfect.
There was lots of fridge space! There's even an extra fridge stored at the back of the house, where we stored extra food for later in the weekend.
The only concern I had up front was that there are property caregivers that live on site--in a separate house next to the Retreat. I was unsure of the amount of privacy we'd have or if we'd be "micro managed", but aside from the minute we arrived, we didn't have a single interaction with them all weekend. There was a ton of parking at the Retreat for our three adult parties staying there, plus the caregivers.
Our interactions with the property manager (different than caregiver) were smooth and helpful. We emailed, spoke on the phone, and were able to make all arrangements with ease. I would definitely recommend this house (and the other two) for your next gathering. I am already thinking of how I want to do another getaway with just my parents and brothers and sister for a holiday visit in the coming years."

"We just returned from renting this home for our annual family reunion and we were all thrilled with the house! There were 16 of us ranging in age from 2 to 94 and the house worked perfectly for everyone! My 94 year old grandpa was especially pleased with having his own bathroom with a walk in shower and having little to no stairs to navigate. The house had everything we needed and the kitchen was well stocked. We had a ton of fun riding bikes and there were plenty to choose from including two youth size bikes that were perfect for my 9 and 11 year old. SHARC passes were used a ton!! The house is in a great location! A short bike ride to the park, the North Pool, SHARC and the grocery store. The house was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed many nights of playing cards and games and lot's of ping pong!! Gordon is a pleasure to work with and we'll be coming back next year for sure!!"

"This is our family's 3rd stay at #34 SM and we will definitely make reservations soon for next summer! It's a perfect location - close to the pool and tennis courts, bike paths...It is a picture postcard of a cozy cabin and the inside is just perfect for us! We barbeque every evening and entertain guests when they drop by - the front porch is so inviting! Every time we have stayed here the neighboring renters have commented on how charming this home is."
