The Honey Bee Ranch was everything we hoped for, and then some! A cozy little spot surrounded by gorgeous Juniper trees and plenty of space to explore. A stone’s throw from Bend, it’s a quick drive to excellent restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops. Judy and Mike were kind and welcoming. We look forward to returning!

We returned to the Honey Bee ranch mostly because of the great location and gracious hosts. Mike, Judy and their daughter Missy, are hosts who know how to balance attention to their guests while providing a feeling solitude. The bunkhouse is a rustic shelter that provides a camping experience with comfy mattresses and simple amenities. We came for 3 nights which allowed us to park the car and hop on our road bikes to enjoy the absolutely breathtaking experience of riding around Tumalo; avoiding the crowds and tourism of Bend. The Bite—a local food truck court is walkable and bike-friendly—and easily 5 minutes away by car. The property sits between Bend and Sisters—so we enjoyed both small cities and floated the river as well. Highly recommend!

Let me start off and say Judy, Mike, and Merissa provided the best experience I ever had at a stay. Their hospitality and kindness made us feel extremely comfortable. The property was magnificent and very beautiful. The cabin was cute, clean, and cozy. Judy and Merissa gave us many recommendations during our stay in Oregon and were extremely accommodating. Also, they provided us farm fresh eggs. They are Amazing people and have an amazing property. If you come up to Oregon, I highly recommend Honeybee Ranch. We will most certainly be back :)

Judy and her family were gracious hosts for us and our 2 dogs over a long weekend stay at the Honeybee Ranch. We arrived well after dark, but Judy was in contact with us, making sure we could find our way. She even left the party lights on for us, which was a big help. We opted to sleep in our tent, but the beds in the bunk house would have been perfect if the weather had been different. The property was so well equipped and laid out that it hardly felt like we were camping. Running water, electricity, and access to the bathroom of a trailer about 100 yards away made our stay very comfortable. Judy and her family gave us several great suggestions of things to do in the area. We would love to return to this property. Definitely take advantage of the outdoor shower (it is brisk, but was refreshing after a couple of hot and dusty hikes), and check for chicken eggs during your stay!

Clean, comfortable little cabin with great amenities - deck, chairs, and outdoor sink for washing dishes and refiling water bottles. Clean portable toilet nearby. Very accessible location and a great "home base" for day trips in the area. We will return!
