Lori's place is extremely peaceful and secluded. There's a ton of space, the beds were very comfortable, and it was great having coffee on the back deck in the morning while enjoying the view of the Deschutes. It's also just a short drive to Sunriver and Bend.

Beautiful location. Very peaceful and quiet. Great place to come home to after a long day fishing on the stream.

Our stay at the Riversong Sanctuary was sweet and memorable. My family of four stayed for the holidays with our dog. We loved watching the animals out the window, treading through the snow to the river, and making many meals in the cozy home next to the fireplace. Besides a few minor miscommunications, Lori did a fantastic job making us feel right at home. She even got the fireplace going for us before we arrived! This place is great for anyone looking for a rustic, arty, close-to-nature homestay near Bend.

A Winter Wonderland. We were so comfortable at River Song. In between going to Mt. Bachelor, we had all the comforts of home and more so. Soaking in the hot tub and looking out over the snowy meadow where the birds were singing and flying was completely relaxing. Reading next to one of the two fireplaces was wonderful after active days of skiing. We were well equipped in the kitchen and enjoyed many meals around the large dining room table. Many thanks to Lori who was available and helpful to answer questions. I would recommend this as a great alternative to cookie cutter condos. It is magical in both gorgeous surroundings and comfortable accommodations.

Lori's home was a unique and beautiful place to stay when visiting Bend. It's a bit outside of the city and feels like you're out in the woods. The view from the deck was amazing and the property had everything we could have asked for. Lori herself was pleasant to deal with, very welcoming and easy to communicate with regarding the details of our reservation. Would definitely stay here again!

Lori's place is in a fabulous location by the river with all the toys. The kitchen, dining and living areas worked really well for our group of 6. Lori's art and artistic touches grace every corner and make for a very welcoming home. The outside spaces are also wonderful. We did have to put 2 of the 3 mattresses on the floor (one saggy, the other squeaky and mushy), and the water had a sulfur smell, but Lori is now aware of both of these problems and how to fix them. We had a lovely week!

Thanks for your feedback Rachel. You were the first to mention this to me. The mattresses have been replaced by two high quality brand new ones.

This place was heaven on earth. The photos do not do it justice. Such a lovely location and close to Bend and sunriver. We stayed three nights and wish it could have been more. The dock is a lovely place to hang out and enjoy the views. It was perfect for our travel group of four adults and two children. We didn't get a chance to float the river but definitely when we come back we will!! Our trip was spent away from the cabin most of the time as we wanted to see the sights around Bend...but this is a place I could plan on visiting and just hang out around the property to destress and unwind. What a wonderful little slice of heaven. Thank you so much Lori for opening up your home!! When we come back to Bend this will be the first place we try and book!!
