We loved the cabin’s proximity to the lake with paddle boats, canoes and kayaks provided! There are three other cabins all placed so that you hardly notice the others. We hiked the trail through the forested area around the lake daily. We would not have needed to leave the property for anything which made the perfect vacation! We cooked all our meals in – and found all the dishes and pans we needed in the well-stocked kitchen.
We can’t say enough about the spacious rooms and cleanliness of the cabin! The owners were easy to reach with questions both before and during our stay.
I can’t begin to list all of the nice touches that make this Cabin feel like home, but suffice it to say that you will be moved to care for it like your own due to the beauty and comfort of the entire property. You will be delighted by the strategically placed hammocks and Adirondack chairs to enjoy alone or in groupings.
Tumalo Falls is close, as is downtown Bend and its many breweries if you are looking for somewhere to go during your stay.
It’s hard to imagine a more perfect spot for peaceful enjoyment of Oregon and we thank Bill and Tracy for making us feel so welcome! We can’t wait to return! Cindy M., Cummings, IA (Creekside Cabin, September 2017)
Idyllic spot…A more idyllic spot you could hardly find with this group of 4 large and luxurious cabins tucked around a corner of a secluded lake. Our house had three very comfortable double bedrooms, each with en-suites, a sitting room upstairs, and a large kitchen, dining and sitting area downstairs. The kitchen was very well equipped and we happily cooked several evening meals, eating sometimes down by the lakeside at the fire-pit. The owners were incredibly helpful and friendly, and clearly had thought about every little detail to make a holiday enjoyable. Puzzles and games were enjoyed on indoor evenings when we weren’t out in the hot-tub, canoeing and rowing on the lake, or walking through the wildlife-filled woods, or even playing corn-chuck! Tumalo Waterfall is a very worthwhile nearby excursion. Bend, a delightful town, is a short drive away and though the last mile or so to the house is unpaved, our two regular vehicles managed easily. We enjoyed the Newberry Volcanics, Smith Rock State Park and a spectacular day at Crater Lake amongst our daily trips. A perfect rental, very highly recommended!” Very best wishes, Cath and Mike M., Devon, UK (Lakeside East Cabin, August 2017)
Peace and Quiet…If you want a place that is peaceful, this place is for you. Cabin was beautiful, enjoyed a hike around the lake, grandkids loved kayaking on the lake, yoga on the deck by the lake, fishing. This place is close enough to Bend for enjoying the town. Thanks Bill and Tracy, we enjoyed our stay.

A Little Bit of Heaven…Our vacation at your Hillside cabin was like staying in a little bit of heaven….peaceful, beautiful beyond description, with a chorus of little froggies to lull us to sleep at night! My fondest memories are of my husband fly fishing from a kayak while floating in the midst of yellow water lilies…so serene with the snow capped mountain in the background. This was an experience we will never forget.
Perfect, beautiful place… This home and surrounding property are perfect. Gorgeous job with the design and construction – everything is top-notch without being too much. Simple, fine construction. leaving way for the gorgeous landscape. Spectacular Ponderosa Pines, lake, trails. I highly recommend this very special place. You will feel refreshed and revitalized immediately!
One of our favorite vacations ever… Where should we begin? On our quest for a fun family vacation, our son started searching in Bend, OR because they have been to Bend, and they wanted to show us how pretty it is. We were hoping to find a spot near Tumalo Falls and we did. When the Creekside Cabin showed up on his search site, we all gathered around him and gasped at how great it looks. We were not disappointed – the luxurious cabin is just that and more: very spacious for the ten of us and all the bedrooms have their own bathroom. We love the knotty pine ceilings and cabinets, the kitchen is fully equipped for meal preparations and the appliances are wonderful. We all loved the open concept on the main floor with the kitchen, dining area and family room together with plenty of room to spread out. The boys were outside whenever we were “home” kayaking, fishing, canoeing, hiking, paddle boarding or just looking for frogs. You can be as busy or relaxed as you want to be. We also loved being on the lake in the quiet natural surroundings but close enough to go into Bend or Sisters and other places. All of us commented several times on the calm beauty of our luxury retreat and we loved having plenty of room to spread out…I never once heard any of the four boys say they were bored. Bill and Tracy were so helpful with any questions we had and stocked the cabin with all the necessities we needed. It’s a quick trip into town for groceries too. Thank you both for a wonderful family vacation….we hope to be back to paradise again next year!
We couldn’t have dreamed of a more peaceful, enjoyable home to spend our family vacation! What an amazing home! What an amazing week! We truly couldn’t have been happier with the beautiful setting, cabin, and accommodations we experienced at Tumalo Lake. It was the perfect base for us to enjoy all our favorite recreational activities…. mountain biking, hiking, golfing, trail running, paddle boarding, canoeing, and brew pub hopping. The best part is that almost all of these activities were within a few feet of our Creekside Cabin. Bill and Tracy were the perfect hosts – welcoming, accommodating and great to work with. They have truly gone “above and beyond” to create the most beautiful vacation home imaginable. Everything was perfect…. the beds were great, the kitchen extremely well equipped, views breathtaking, the furniture comfortable, decorations beautiful, spacious rooms (great to have bathrooms for each bedroom), and great lake access. We would not have changed a thing. Can’t wait to return next year!
Pure excellence… This was our third time to the immaculate Tumalo Lake Lodge and once again, the cabin did not disappoint. Not only are the amenities superb, but the overall serene setting is something we’ll cherish for years to come. Proximity to Bend is SUCH a huge bonus (only a 10 min drive to town) but at the end of the day you’re in a relaxing, beautiful cabin on a remote lake in one of the most gorgeous settings in all of Oregon. We visited with our toddler + 2 other couples and their toddlers and we were all super comfortable. Book your reservation! I promise you won’t regret it.
Lakeside West visit… As usual, we had the most remarkable visit to Tumalo Lake Lodge. Aside from the beautifully appointed cabins, luxurious linens, well supplied kitchen and homey furnishings, Bill is an amazing host! We have visited many times and have now stayed in all the cabins at least once, depending on how many family members we bring. In 7 stays, we have absolutely no complaints and plenty of fine family memories around the campfire making s’mores, on the lake, hiking the ridges, just hanging out and enjoying the gorgeous views, snow-shoeing, or hiking to Tumalo Falls. It’s a beautiful place and one of our very favorites. Thank you Bill and Tracy!
Amazing! My wife and I recently stayed at the Hillside Cabin with another couple. The location was amazingly scenic, and the cabin was absolutely beautiful! The craftsmanship that went into building this cabin was at the highest level, and the builder clearly was focused on attention to detail. We loved the hot tub, the wood fireplace, and the expansive deck that overlooked the lake. The cabin was also beautifully furnished with VERY comfortable beds, high end appliances, and a rustic but refined decor. We were looking for a quiet vacation, and this location definitely fit the bill. The property is well off the main road, so there is absolutely no noise to interfere with the sounds of nature. We met the owners, Bill and Tracy, and they are some of the nicest and most gracious people you will ever meet. There really are too many positives to list when talking about this cabin. So my recommendation is to schedule a vacation at this cabin or one of the other cabins on the property and come see for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
Mid-week retreat… I recently enjoyed a quiet mid-week retreat the Hillside Cabin. The weather allowed for snowshoeing around the lake and a late afternoon/early evening campfire by the lake. It was very restful to sit, read a book enjoy friends in the peaceful atmosphere. It is hard to believe the cabin is so close to Bend. The interior is well appointed and equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. It was the most comfortable vacation rental I have ever stayed in. I look forward to returning.
Perfect get-away… We were looking for a place to enjoy the snow for a short spring break trip, and we decided on heading to Bend. We were not disappointed. This place is private, secluded, has a gorgeous setting, and is a very comfortable home. The kids were able to run around and be free outdoors. The cabin is close to downtown Bend as well as Mt. Bachelor. We were able to head into town for dinner, a movie, and shopping, and go to Mt. Bachelor to ski/sled. My children enjoyed staying close to the cabin to explore the lake and woods that were right outside the door. My only complaint is that our stay was too short. We will definitely be returning soon.
