Surrounded by the stunning snowcapped peaks of the Cascade Mountains and the largest juniper forest in the western U.S., Bend is an outdoor recreation enthusiast’s paradise. Known for its cycling, hiking, kayaking, fishing and golfing, Bend, in the central part of the state, gets your adrenaline flowing in a variety of ways.
Following a full day of intense activities, you’ll need a comfortable place to relax and recharge. Consider a spacious vacation rental where you can spread out and prepare your own meals rather than small hotel room. Whether you want to stay near downtown, in the Old Mill District, or near the Mt Bachelor ski resort, we have lots of villas, multi-bedroom homes, cabins, condos and other choices that are a better value than a hotel.
Bend is a phenomenal outdoor environment to leave the computers and televisions behind for a few hours or days. Family activities abound starting with the Lava Lands Visitors Center, about 15 minutes from downtown, where you’ll see the Lava Butte, a 7,000-year-old cinder cone lava formation that rises 500 feet. For thrill seekers, raft or kayak the white waters of the Deschutes River, take a panoramic chairlift ride up Mt. Bachelor, hike along Tumalo Creek or fish for trout at a well-stocked pond at Shevlin Park.
Golfers have ten picturesque and challenging golf courses to play in the Bend area, including the Jack Nicklaus designed Pronghorn Golf Club, Crosswater at Sunriver Resort, a Bob Cupp design, and the affordable, family-owned Aspen Lakes Golf Club, where you’ll find lots of local residents.
Downtown Bend is brimming with shops, galleries, restaurants, microbreweries and bars, which will enhance your visit to this former logging town.
From rustic cabins and cozy cottages to amenity-loaded condos and vacation homes with high-speed Internet, swimming pools, fireplaces and hot tubs, we can provide you with an extensive list of options in Bend. A great money-saving feature in all vacation rentals is the fully equipped kitchen, which allows you to provide delicious meals and snacks for your family instead of dining at pricey restaurants that’ll quickly destroy your budget.
When you visit Bend, your goal is to free your mind in the wondrous natural surroundings and the last thing you want to do is anguish about how much you paid for a cramped hotel room. Vacation rentals are a great value and we have special deals and discounts on a wide variety of properties in different areas of Bend in every price range.
