About Chris Wheeler
Hi We are Cliff & Chris the owners of Baker Pond Vacation Cabins . You can read more about us in the unique benefits section. We are excited to share our wonderful home with you and hope you enjoy your stay
Chris Wheeler purchased this Lodge in 1996
Why Chris Wheeler chose Deschutes River Woods
The Lodge at Baker Pond is a great place for family reunions, work retreats, quilting groups, or just gathering with your family. Indoors you will find many comforts and conveniences that you will throughly enjoy during your stay in the 4,025 square feet of indoor living space. In addition, there are several fun outdoor activities right in the back yard all to be enjoyed at your own risk of course. These activities include boating, paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, fishing, 6 hole disk golf around the pond and maybe a bit of ice skating in the cold of winter to name a few. If getting in the pond is not your thing, relax in the private hot tub and enjoy the view. There is also outdoor seating both on and off the back deck to enjoy the beautiful Central Oregon air or relax by the fire pit with seating all around. We hope your time is a blessed time at the Pond!
What makes this Lodge unique
(written by owner) In 1994 when my husband Cliff and I wanted to move back home to Bend we found this 10 acre lot with a 5 ac pond in the center of it. We fell in love with it and Cliff wanted to build his own Log Cabin so we signed the contract on our 25th wedding anniversary and began the process of finding a log home company that would let us build ourselves. That happened and in 1995 we began to "stack the logs". 2 crazies ( that is us ) in our mid 40's without a clue as to what we were doing "stacked every log" ( that means we took each log onto the sub floor and put it on a cutting deck and predrilled for 12" spikes - nails (old style) and all the electrical and then moved that log to the wall and at first hand put it in place ...that changed and we used an engine hoist mid way up) in the Home ourselves and then Cliff and our youngest son built the rest of the house up to the roof. We have added to our original home twice by an entryway-garage-game room and the Cottage attached apt for my parents. Now that we have retired from building log homes after 20 plus years and around 200 homes in the Northwest, we want to share this special place with you all ! If you want to see some photos of how and what we did our Facebook business page is still live at Baker Pond Log Works and while you are there please stop by and like our Baker Pond Vacation Cabins page ...leave a photo or reviews and again we are hoping your stay makes memories for you all !

Outstanding house and property
We had such a great time at this house, our only wish would of been warmer weather so we could of really enjoyed the pond. The house had everything we needed. Having 10 adults we needed 6 bedrooms and this house had plenty of room for all of us. We cooked great meals in the fabulous well stocked kitchen. Plenty of room to play games, read, and just enjoy the view. We highly recommend this house.
We had a wonderful time and the property was perfect! Big enough for everyone to have their space and come together. We felt it was great value for our money and the lake views are stunning :)
Two thumbs up.
The lodge was a wonderful place to stay. We had 13 people and 2 dogs and still felt like there was extra space. The kitchen was incredibly well stocked and the yard for dogs was fully fenced. Would highly recommend staying here!
Wedding in the Snow
This property was perfect for my family. We gathered for a small wedding. Plenty of bedrooms for the entire group. Additionally, the shared areas are very large and well appointed. There is a pond on the property which combined to make a nature area for the kids. The is amazing, especially after it started to snow.
Everything except the food was furnished. Pots, pans, silver and flat ware. All with a log cabin motif. Great time... I will try to come back soon !!!!
Thanks Michael for the great review and happy it snowed for your special day. Happy to host your small intimate wedding. Please come stay with us again !
A group of friends and I rented this lodge for a three day weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect. The kitchen was huge and great for cooking big meals, plenty of space to spread out and relax and the scenery is awesome. I would recommend this place to anyone going to Bend with a large group. It is close to town, but far enough out that it has a country feel. Thank you Chris for the amazing weekend.
This house is beautiful. The photos do not do it justice. Our entire family stayed (adults, children and grandkids) and had a great time. Plenty of room for privacy and family gathering. The kitchen and outside grilling allowed several family members to cook together. For the future I would ask for a bug bomb to be out off before arrival due to the large amount of spiders. I hate spiders!
We truly believe you will enjoy your stay at Baker Pond. We are just South of the beautiful Bend OR... just 6.5 miles to the heart of downtown Bend or 13 miles from Sunriver. So, we're close enough for that epic concert at the Amphitheater or lazy float down the river in the Old Mill. Or hitting the slopes at Mount Bachelor is just a 25 mile scenic drive. But if you're looking for somewhere you don't have to leave to feel like you're on Vacation - be entertained or rejuvenated by what staying at Baker Pond has to offer.
