The space

Just one exit south from Sun River, this cabin is cozy and quiet, yet convenient to great fishing, kayaking (3 minute walk to the Deschutes River), road biking and, oh right, 40 acres of forest just out the backdoor. It is a 20-25 minute drive to Bend, one exit south from Sun River and a great jumping off spot for numerous adventures or just a great place to lounge after mountain biking or skiing.
The cabin itself is simple, but cozy and comfortable, with all of the basics and a great wood fire stove. (To be clear: I have solid reviews from those who understand that this is a cabin, and I have had some occasional frustration from people who think they have found some inexpensive alternative to the Sunriver Resort or are looking for posh and polished. This is a cabin. Please do not expect what it is not.) There are two built-in beds and a loft for sleeping arrangements, a nice living room/dining area and a simple but stocked kitchen. It is an open space - which is has virtues and vices (virtue is that it is airy and feels spacious; vice that sharing with in-laws may be too much information and lacks privacy). There is not WiFi, as I use the cabin primarily as a writing retreat space, but there is a washer/drier and everything you need to cook up meals and to live comfortably during your stay.

Guest access

The cabin is fairly straightforward. There is also access to the shed in the backyard, and that's where firewood is stacked.

Adjacent to the property is federal land with nice walking trails. The trailhead is right at the end of the property.

House Rules
Check in is anytime after 1PM
Check out by 10AM
Self check-in with lockbox

The house is straight forward. I don't have any rules, per se, but a few requests:
Foremost, just making sure that the house and woods don't burn down! In the summertime, Central Oregon is at-risk for fires. PLEASE no fires during the summer months - indoors or outdoors. If you do smoke, please make sure that butts are contained in some sort of jar and doused with water. The High Desert is beautiful in the summer, but tinderbox dry. In the winter, please make sure that the sofa isn't pushed against the base heater.

Also, please leave garbage bags inside the cabin when you leave. If left outside, the local wildlife will tear them open and toss around the backyard.

Otherwise, use the place as you would treat your mother's home.

This cabin is not nice or cozy. It is shabby and not well maintained. It is poorly furnished, poorly equipped and simply not clean. Suffice it to say, it was incredibly disappointing.

The setting is beautiful. The cabin is pleasantly rustic. We had a great stay at Phil’s cabin and appreciated his clear communication through the entire process. We hope to stay here again sometime soon.

We were thrilled with the cabin. We are a rustic, in the woods, kind of couple and the fact that we had trails that took us to the river in under a quarter of a mile was terrific. We actually were in the area for a fraternity reunion and didn't spend all that much time at the cabin, but it's proximity to grocery shopping and gas was pretty good. No tv or wifi, but that is actually a good thing. Getting unplugged is good for everyone on occasion (in my humble opinion). Walking in the woods is relaxing, as is the very quiet area. There are neighbors, but we didn't hear them but minimally during the daytime. If in the area again, we definitely check the availability! Phil was awesome in his response time, even though I think I may have been a bit of a pest at one point.

We had a nice night in Phil's cabin. It is rustic and a bit older, but fit our needs. It is in a beautiful location and would be great place to enjoy the river (the Deshutes River just a short walk away).

This place is spacious yet cozy. Very quiet and private in the woods yet close to town. Great place!

It is a comfortable place to stay and relax. We woke up one morning to watch a pair of fawns that still had their spots playing in the yard while their mother was nearby. A good location far enough away from Bend to be a bit quieter but close enough to go into town for dinner if you like. Great proximity to Sunriver and the highways into the mountains.

Great little cabin backing onto the river and walking trails. Would definitely stay again.

I work as a writer and filmmaker, and seem to not stay in one place too long.
