About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This vacation home is tucked among the ponderosa pines and nestles along side of the Little Deschutes River. Built in 2006, this home includes 1,848 sq. ft. of fabulousness, featuring a wonderful interior with granite countertops, slate floors, maple hardwood floors, travertine stone and stainless steel appliances. Of course you won't want to stay in long, with the river a mere eighty feet away and your choice of 2 decks and a patio in which to enjoy the serenity, you'll surely want to be outside taking in the fresh air. While you're there, be sure to keep an eye out for the deer, elk and quail that often roam the two acres of land. Winter visitors can enjoy all of this from the living room picture windows and 3 slider doors.

The bottom floor of the cabin comprises of the kitchen, dining and living room, two bedrooms each with a queen size bed and a bathroom with a walk in shower. Upstairs you'll find the second bathroom with a tub and shower, adjacent to an expansive loft area that houses a queen bed. The home sleeps 6 comfortably.

Additional comforts include a wide screen TV with a great selection of DVDs, a wood burning stove (great after a day on the mountain) and a full sized washer and dryer.

About Bill and Stacy Mikesell

We were both born and raised in Iowa. We have been married for 39 years and have 3 children and 2 granddaughters. We moved our family to Oregon in 1993 and have enjoyed all that Oregon has to offer. Our family loves the outdoors. Having a log home has always been a dream of ours. Now we can live our dream. We have had so many great memories here at our log home.

Bill and Stacy Mikesell purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Bill and Stacy Mikesell chose La Pine

We love the quiet community and have some close friends that have also built homes in the area. Our home is in the back of our two acre lot which makes it a quiet peaceful setting. Watching and hearing the birds and wildlife is a passion of ours. Being among all the upper lakes and rivers makes activities unlimited.

What makes this cabin unique

Away from the road. Backs up to the Little Deschutes River (80 ft.). Wildlife viewing. Swimming,floating and fishing. Beautiful blue skies during the day and so many stars at night. Summer days are warm and in the evening it cools down so nice (perfect weather combo) in the summer. It is a winter wonderland for winter sports. The home sits just down the road from BLM where you can ride your ATVs/Mountain Bikes to your heart's content.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My niece and my sister brought me here for my 90th b day and it was marvelous! I loved the personal touches in the house and really enjoyed the deck and fire pit. Cold but wonderful. My having lived in La Pine many years ago, this was a lovely visit to my favorite place on earth. Thank you for helping to make it special.

Wonderful Gettaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was nice and remote, but still had decent access to stores over in La Pine. The house was extremely beautiful, comfortable and well stocked. Animals running all over the place. The river is absolutely gorgeous and they've done a fabulous job of carving out an open space/swimming area next to it. We actually picked up quite a few rainbow trout on the river there and you cannot beat the lakes, reservoirs and rivers nearby. Very accessible. We also enjoyed the Desert museum just a few miles north and Crater lake just an hour or so south. We had a very nice and relaxing experience.

The cabin and property were really great. Our entire group felt very comfortable and at home.

  • 5 of 5

The owners and property made our trip a great time. We thought location may be a hindrance when booking but we were near several excursion points and had a great time in Bend, the hot springs and rafting down the North Umpqua. I would recommend this cabin for a group or family.

Love this house

  • 5 of 5

I've been here 3 times now with my family and friends. Winter, summer, spring. This house offers a beautifully, yet diverse accommodation like no other. The teepee is fascinating. The little dechutes River is refreshing and reminiscent of "little house on the prairie" my family loves the local golf course, Sun River, and crater lake. This is a perfect location to "get away" yet see all of what this area offers. This house is stunning, every detail thought out. Can't wait to come back!

Our family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the beautiful log home for a couple nights, and just like what the homeowners said, we did not want to leave! The home was meticulously clean, kitchen well appointed and beds comfortable. The home really felt like a home (we've been to other vacation rentals where the owners had kind of thrown things together just to meet standards, not here!) Outdoor seating was plenty and both nights we lounged outside under the milky way. During the daytime we cooled off in the clear swift waters of the little river that flowed right behind the house and watched the wildlife. There was no Wifi or satellite/cable TV but we didnt really need it. For those that do, my ATT reception was kinda piir but Verizon seemed to work decent. Bend, Crater lake NP were around 1hr-1.5hr drive. All in all highly recommended for a peaceful getaway.

La Pine is a quaint community located 18 miles south of Sun River. The area boasts miles of recreational land, and for visitors young and old alike, there is no shortage of activities to partake in.

La Pine State Park offers hiking, fishing, swimming and boating. Fly casting for brown and rainbow trout is a favorite past time for many of the park's visitors. If a more serene atmosphere suites you, you'll have your pick of more than 158 lakes and reservoirs to choose from.

Whether it's golfing on the Quail Run Golf Course (just north of La Pine), skiing on Mt. Bachelor (roughly 45 minutes away), or visiting the quaint little town of sisters (45 miles), your visit to La Pine will not disappoint!
