Guest Access

Guests will have access to entire property except the area by the sweat lodge unless you have made arrangements to schedule a ceremony. Enjoy the bikes, hiking, kayaks, canoe, rafts, fire circle and boat dock. There is also an air compressor and adapters for your use.

Interaction with Guests

I like to be present to greet you, I enjoy meeting my guests. I live on the far corner of the property and can be seen working in the garden and the yard. When I am around I am happy to help you in anyway I can. Sometimes I am not here because I like to travel like you :)
If I am gone, there is a lock box that is easy to find and you will receive the code and all the instructions for the property in an email and more helpful information will be on the kitchen table when you check in.

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood is quiet, beautiful, full of wildlife with the river here, and very peaceful! Lots of friendly people here.

Getting around

I run my own shuttle service with a 6 passenger Nissan Quest mini van. Shuttle service runs to Bend, Mt. Bachelor, Sisters, wine and brew tours, the airport and more. There is lots of free parking on the property, behind a 6ft privacy fence and gate.

Other Things to Note

If you want natural beauty, peace, privacy and quiet solitude, but you also want to be close to activity, grocery stores and events this is the very best place for the price in the area. There is lots of Sunshine here and you can see out to the river and meadow below.
There is a tame little black bunny named "Boo" that runs free around the yard. She will run right up to you. If you are bringing a dog, they need to be on a leash in the yard so the bunny is safe.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We stayed here in mid-August for two nights and had the spacious downstairs suite. The house is not directly on the Deschutes river but there is a beautiful view across wetlands of the river. The deck is a real plus and we made use of the grill for our evening meals. Another fun activity was taking the canoe and kayak out for a spin on the river. Lori was there to meet us and when I called her later with a question, she promptly replied with the info we needed. She seems like a conscientious and caring host. Sunriver is close by but I appreciated being outside the resort neighborhoods.

  • The name of Lori's place says it all. My family spent an extended weekend in the lower unit of the River Song Sanctuary. The place was very roomy, well appointed with thoughtful attention to detail throughout. What a wonderful location to get away from the chaos we saw in nearby Sunriver.

    Lori was very welcoming and made us feel comfortable staying in her home. I'm looking forward to another opportunity to come back.

    I look forward to your stay again whenever that might be. Thanks for the great review!

  • Staying with Lori was one of the highlights of our trip. Her beautiful house is right next to the river in a quiet and peaceful spot. The accommodation is very spacious, very clean and comfortable with all mod cons but what makes this place unique is that Lori has furnished with great style and decorated it beautifully using some of her own paintings. (She is a successful artist with a gallery in Sisters, check it out). Lori is a kind and thoughtful host, providing us with endless tourist information and lending us her inflatable raft and kayak to float down the river, (great fun). It's a wonderful spot for bird watching, fishing or just sitting out on the veranda and watching the river float by. Because of its secluded nature and the way Lori runs it (a tame rabbit, two ducks, a veg garden, bird feeders and when we were there a beautiful teepee in the making) the place has a wonderfully serene quality. We hope to come back some day.
