The Les Schwab Amphitheater is only a 14 minute walk. Close to the north, within easy biking distance, lies Bend’s fun and exciting downtown area.

Description: The Salmon Lodge has a striking open architecture in a modern but comfortable Northwest lodge style. The downstairs is dominated by a luxurious great room that includes a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with granite counters, breakfast bar and stainless appliances. The Northwest feel of the dining and living area is set by generous use of architectural rock and natural wood. Here the ceiling soars to the second floor rooftop, and big windows let in the year-round sun for which Bend is so famous. The gas fireplace is topped with a unique and artistic juniper mantle. A sky bridge leads above the great room to a small bar area and then outside to a second-floor exterior deck that offers stunning views of the Cascades, including the Sisters and other nearby volcanic summits. The home is kept comfortable year-round with gas heat and a gas fireplace in winter as well as air conditioning & four ceiling fans in summer.

Accommodations include three bedrooms, all with a dedicated full bath that is either in-suite or adjacent. The five beds include a king (in the luxury master suite), two queens in bedrooms, a queen sleeper sofa in the great room (best for kids or younger teens), and a twin futon bed in the loft for a total sleeping capacity of six to eight. A portable crib and baby gates for the top and bottom of the stairs are also provided. The luxurious four-piece master shower/bath includes a jetted Jacuzzi soaking tub. The bath and both showers include a deluxe dual showerhead system with handhelds.

Adjacent to the house is a modest fenced area with a patio, second outdoor table and gas grill. The fenced area is sufficient to serve as a dog run for smaller dogs. In addition, a covered front porch on the first floor offers a great place to relax and watch the world go by. A two-car garage behind the Salmon Lodge is entered from a private alley.

The Salmon Lodge is ideally located for a perfect vacation, taking advantage of everything the Bend area has to offer. During the day enjoy the natural environment and stimulating outdoor pursuits for which Bend is famous, including skiing, mountain biking, fishing, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, rafting, horseback riding and golf – just to name a few. Then in the evenings take in the restaurants, entertainment and shopping that fill Bend’s Westside. Or just relax at the lodge and watch the sun set over the Cascades from the outdoor dining table on the upper deck as you quaff a beverage from the nearby minibar. Evenings will be enhanced by the entertainment choices at the Lodge, including cable TV, Wifi Internet, and extensive collections of DVDs (including children’s), CDs, books and board games.

Are you visiting Bend to get some winter sunshine? Designed by a Jen Weld executive, the Salmon Lodge has 33 glass windows and doors to let in the light!

Do you enjoy lakes and rivers? Two high quality Old Town canoes with wood bent-shaft paddles and a variety of PFDs are provided in season. Would you like to explore winter snow trails in the nearby Cascades? Four pairs of snowshoes are provided.

Dogs are welcome too!

Check in time is 3 p.m., and check out time is 11 a.m.

Bend is a terrific town – you will discover great ways to enjoy yourself there, regardless of how many times you visit! Our goal as owners of the Salmon Lodge is to offer an outstanding place for families or groups of good friends to stay, one that comfortably reflects Bend’s outdoorsy Northwest character. As part of that effort, we have worked hard over the years to build our extensive collection of amenities, decorative items, books, games and videos at the Lodge. The collection grows every year, so on your return trips, keep your eyes peeled for surprises, additions and improvements.

Reserve soon for an adventure of a lifetime.

About Richard Penny

The owners, Anne and Richard Penny, live in Mill Creek, Washington We are both college or university educators. We enjoy the Northwest's culture and all the outdoor activities the region has to offer. We love going to Bend to enjoy the sun and to get outside when it is too rainy in the Puget Sound.

Richard Penny purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Richard Penny chose Old Mill District

We chose the Salmon Lodge as our vacation property because it offers the best of both worlds. One the one hand it is located right in the heart of Bend's vibrant West Side, just walking distance from great restaurants, coffee bars, pubs, music, the Les Schwab Amphitheater and other entertainment. On the other hand, it is also a Northwest outdoor lodge, offering easy access to Bend's terrific skiing, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing and kayaking.

What makes this townhome unique

Enjoy a luxury, Northwest lodge vacation experience in the heart of vibrant west Bend. Walk to shopping and restaurants in the Old Mill shopping area. Ride your bike to downtown. The Mt. Bachelor ski area, the Deschutes River and all the other wonderful outdoor activities for which Bend is famous are just minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We climbed Smith Rock and Lava Butte. Plus we visited the High Desert Museum, Pilot Butte, many breweries and the Old Mill. The view from the top of Smith Rock was great! Thank you Anne and Richard for the great place to stay and visit!

We got there late and everything was just as Rick and Anne described, beautiful and stocked with everything we could want. Close to Mt. Bachelor and the ski shops and the restaurants and breweries in town. We would love to come back.

Salmon Lodge is a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family met at Salmon Lodge for a ski weekend and Mt. Bachelor did not disappoint. Lots of packed powder and fast lifts, we snowshoed as well. Coming home to Salmon Lodge after time on the mountain was great. We barbecued steaks, enjoyed some wine and a great movie to end the day while the snow fell outside. The gas fireplace kept us warm and cozy while the gourmet kitchen and all of the home's additional amenities made life very easy to take. I would recommend this property for anyone looking to have a great time in Bend, Oregon.

Airy home, centrally located, had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Our 1st trip to Oregon and we picked a great place to stay! Three nice bedrooms and baths! A kitchen where everything was labelled. We travel west each year to ski. We like to try different mountains. Even though this was a poor snow year for Mt Bachelor, we loved it so much, we may return again. This home is located very close to ther Old Mill District where there are plenty of shopping/dining opportunities. Highly recommend this home!

Wow what a great location with lots of extras

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully furnished and decorated. Very comfortable and loved having 3 full bathrooms! Couldn't have asked for a better location so close to the Mill District and Mt. Bachelor. Got to use the snowshoes that are in the garage. Lots of extras, snow sleds, snowshoes, canoe, life jackets. Can't wait to come back in the summer.
