The Space

Just one exit south from Sun River, this cabin is cozy and quiet, yet convenient to great fishing, kayaking (90 second 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 cabin-elegant. 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 good meals and to live comfortably during your stay.

(Please note: Most of the reviews currently pertain to my place in Portland. I have two houses listed on AirBnB, and the site doesn't separate reviews. But, rest assured, I'm just as nice and generous about my Bend cabin as my Portland home.)

  • Awesome cabin! We had a blast staying here and enjoyed a midnight bike ride from the Sharc to the cabin. Would highly recommend staying here.

  • Great cabin, about 30 minutes south of Central Bend, in the beautiful pines snuggled in the National Forest. Great, comfortable beds and a perfect lounging hammock out front. Really enjoyed a relaxing stay.

  • Great electronic communication, no problem finding the cabin, it was exactly what we expected. Also, plenty of food left for renters was a bonus!

  • We had a great weekend at Phil's cabin! We enjoyed the fact that there are some short trails along the deschutes right behind the cabin and a nice launch for the kayaks just up river. Quiet, clean and very comfortable. Thanks Phil!

  • Phil's place was perfect for a weekend fishing trip on the Fall River. The cabin was very cozy and well appointed. Everything was as expected with no surprises. I would definitely rent the cabin in the future.

  • Phil's place was GREAT! Really close to Mt. Bachelor, we were going snowboarding before the season was up. Kitchen was stocked, plenty of towels, bed was really comfortable, and there was a washer/dryer so that was nice. Very quiet, no neighbors behind the house. Over all I would 100% stay here again, it was great.

  • My husband and I had a nice, quiet, relaxing stay at the cabin. We walked to the nearby river and took the dogs for a swim. The cabin had everything we needed for our weekend getaway. We were close enough to Bend that we could drive in and explore but far enough away that it was quiet and close to nature. We would come back again.

  • Great cabin, comfy bed, well stocked, and flexible host! What more can you ask for?

    I especially enjoyed the wildfire stove!

  • We enjoyed our stay at Phil's cabin. It's cozy and quiet. There are some trails to walk on right outside, but for longer hikes you need to get in your car and drive. I especially recommend Shevlin Park in Bend. If you want to have a fire in the wood stove it would be a good idea to bring your own dry wood.

  • We loved our stay! The cabin had everything that we needed for our getaway. The wood stove is really great. A short drive to Mt. Bachelor (~25 minutes) and to Bend (~25 minutes).
