All About Bend

Bend, Oregon is a premier vacation destination located in central Oregon. A former logging town on the edge of the Cascade Range, where dense pine forest gives way to desert junipers and sagebrush, Bend is sunny and mild all year round. It’s connected to millions of acres of wilderness by a network of running, hiking, biking, and ski trails that range from the Deschutes River, through town, up onto Mount Bachelor, and out into the wild, arid plateau of Central Oregon along the Oregon Desert Trail. There’s world-class climbing in the canyon at Smith Rock Park, Class V whitewater, and abundant trout, steelhead, and salmon, all close to town.

Bend is all about being outdoors, and Escape To Bend vacation homes are situated in the most convenient location to do so.  Perched above the Deschutes River in beautiful Mt. Bachelor Village, you’ll be just 20 minutes from Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort, the 5th largest in North America with over 4000 acres of terrain serviced by 11 chairlifts. You can hop on you mountain bike and ride right from your doorstep to Phil’s Trails, or walk just a short distance to the Deschutes River Trail.  Golfers will have their choice of multiple courses, and river rafting, kayaking, and hiking are all nearby.

Best of all, when you stay at Escape To Bend, you’ll have access to Mt. Bachelor Village pools and hot tubs, and you’ll be just minutes from downtown, where there are great restaurants and amazing breweries to explore.

Every picture shown above is no more than a 30 minute drive from the Escape To Bend properties, and many of them are just a short walk away on the river trail.
