Nice little bunkhouse

Well built bunkhouse with comfortable bunks, spacious deck, sink, shower (cold) and fire pit. Electricity and good tasting water. Host Judy and husband Mike are very hospitable and accommodating. They knew we liked to watch birds and hung 2 bird feeders at the bunkhouse. The bunkhouse faces the chicken coop and the chickens are very entertaining.. plus free eggs. There is a nice view to a distant butte and the east side of the bunkhouse has solid shade during the heat of the day. The bunkhouse is lovely but the hosts live in trailer several hundred feet away so it is not a secluded spot if that’s what you’re looking for. There is road noise from hwy 20, which waxes and wanes, but is not country quiet. The location is great and you are free to roam around. It’s a 6 minute drive to the Deschutes River at Tumalo State Park and 15 minutes to a wonderful float trip down the Deschutes at the Tumalo Creek Canoe Company. You can also walk to an outdoor pub/ food truck / hang out location called “The Bite”, if you want a change of venue. We enjoyed our time there.

Lucy, Thank you for your kind words! We thoroughly enjoyed having you and I am so glad you enjoyed the chickens, eggs, wine and wood! I am happy to report that the trailer has been moved; It is no longer visible from the cabin and I wish it could have been accomplished before you arrived. You were truly the perfect guest!!!!! I hope you find yourself our direction in the near future. Looking forward to seeing you again! Judy & Mike

My family had a wonderful time at Honeybee Ranch! Mike met us upon arrival and was very welcoming. We felt like we were glamping in the adorable and cozy cabin. My daughter loved feeding the chickens, and their eggs were delicious! We saw a big, beautiful red tailed hawk hanging out on a tree 15 feet from the cabin! Such a treat! Mike & Judy even set out new wood for us while we were out and about on our second day. I highly recommend staying at Honeybee, and we plan to return and explore more of the property!

Kristen, Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful review of HoneyBee Ranch! We are thrilled that you had such a great time and will return to see us soon! I also LOVE birdwatching so I couldn't be happier that you saw the red tailed hawk! We also have two resident owls; among the coyotes, rabbits, buck and blue jays. Looking forward to seeing you and your family again! Judy & Mike

The Honeybee Ranch was amazing! My siblings and I spent our 4th of July here and it was incredible. It was very quiet and there was plenty of room for our dog to run around. We got to watch the beautiful firework display in Bend from a distance. Judy and her husband Mike were incredibly generous. They gave us fresh eggs from their chickens and made sure we were enjoying ourselves the entire time! I loved the little cabin and its cute lights. If I'm ever back in Bend, I will definitely stay here again. Definitely reccommended.

Hone Bee Ranch is the perfect place to stay for a weekend getaway or to use as a place to stay while traveling north or south through Oregon. The dwelling was rustic, quaint and well thought out. The view of the surrounding hills from the porch are spectacular in the morning and evening light. There even is a little chipmunk making his home in a nearby tree hollow.

Judy and Mike were exemplary hosts and their Honey Bee Bunkhouse was the perfect Bend experience for a couple of friends spending a couple of days in a beautiful place. The custom-crafted cabin was small, but very comfortable--comparable to a yurt: comfortable bunks with pillows and bottom linens, a simple toilet and enough counter space and hooks to accommodate 2. The sink is outdoors and has clean cold water, as does the outdoor shower. The red adirondack chairs are perfectly positioned on a porch that looks out onto their 11 acres while strategically hiding the nearby freeways. Only 15 minutes into Bend--an easy drive and a 20 minute walk into Tumalo. It truly was everything they promised. While the accommodation was private, Judy and Mike made themselves available by text or phone for questions. I would definitely return. I was very pleased!

The Honey Bee Ranch cabin was great! Great place to stay for 2-3 days, has a great picnic table and camp fire set up. The cabin came with a mini fridge and cooler, there are items for purchase. The two twin beds were great, the only thing that we didn't know, because it wasn't on the listing, is that you do need to bring a sleeping bag and pillow. We had only brought blankets and pillow because I was under the impression bedding would be included. Other than that, this was a cute little spot in Tumalo with lots of walking/hanging out, we were able to take a 15 min walk into town from the property, which was great! Judy and Mike are super friendly and attentive.

Sorry you missed the part in the listing about bringing your own sleeping bags due to COVID-19! Wish we could supply more but not during this pandemic, it is for our safety and yours! Glad you loved your stay!

The Honeybee Ranch was the perfect place to get away to from the city. It's location is private, while still being close to many great spots in Tumalo and Bend. The tiny cabin was clean and cozy.

Judy, Mike, & Dash were excellent hosts for our "glamping" experience at the Honey Bee Ranch. From excellent & welcoming communications before/during our trip to informational notes/suggestions to leaving us some treats for our two dogs that joined us --- we really enjoyed our much needed time away in the beautiful high desert. Many thanks to our wonderful hosts!

This was our first Hipcamp experience, and we're looking forward to many more - and to consider becoming a host ourselves!
