Travel Blogs from Bend
Brrr!!! It really is November. We woke up to ice inside the bus this morning. Allison and I have spent the last couple of days in her old college town, Bend. It really reminds me a lot of Missoula and Flagstaff. The surrounding forest and volcanic terrain is very much like Flagstaff. The first day we walked around dowtown and ate at the Deschutes …
... Water, Light & Power Company dam on the Deschutes River
in Bend. The dam provided the city with its initial source of
electricity. The dam has been owned by Pacific Power since 1926 and
still produces electricity that supplies approximately 200 Bend
... the replacement. :P
Unfortunately the roads that we took in Idaho were full of construction, and put us a little behind. There was a diamond in the rough though; I think I found my new vacation destination - Sandpoint, Idaho! It was +38 and a beautiful lake town surrounded by water. There was a little resort on the edge of the lake with canoes you could rent - and there were tons of boats pulling water-skiers and tubes. Definitely will make it ...
... we the East Rim has not yet opened due to snow and falling rocks. No telling what we might have run into if we’d gone much farther.
While we were driving the approximately 25 miles into the Park, I was reading from the Park newspaper. It had an interesting article on the red fox species that is found there. DNA studies have definitely linked it to the Sierra Nevada mountain fox group, which is descended ...
... the country side to hang out by Elk Lake. Upon arrival, I felt like I stepped onto the set of "Dirty Dancing" - unfortunately there wasn't that kind of entertainment there but it closely resembled the 50's family feel of that setting. On the way home, we stopped by the site of the largest tree in Oregon - it had such a powerful presence!
It was such a treat to be able to hang with these dear friends one last time before leaving the west coast...just wish ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Seventh Mountain Resort Bend
I loved my stay at the Inn!!! I stayed in one of the new renovated rooms. The atmosphere was serene, the staff helpful, what more could I ask for! I loved it so much I'm going there again next weekend.
Lots to Do!
We have 2 young children and the Inn offers alot to do. We just park and go! Kids loved the swimming area. We enjoyed volleyball and miniture golf. Also enjoyed the tennis courts. Compared to the "City of SunRiver", this place is wonderful - much more relaxing and you don't have to pay extra for the pool, etc.! Also closer to Bend and Mt.
Bachelor. We've enjoyed this place for close to 20 years.
Not worth the money.
Room was bug infested. Housekeeping didn't bother to clean our room 1 day during our 3 day stay. On second day they didn't bother to change the sheets.
Bad-Don't go! Sunriver better!
Not worth the time or money! Dirty, noisy, plumbing proplems, bats-rude manager. Went to Sunriver and had a great time!!!
We went to The Inn of the Seventh Mountain for a quiet anniversary celebration, and had a wonderful time. We stayed in one of the newly remodeled condos, which was absolutely beautiful. Every aspect of the renovation was of the highest quality. The staff courteously answered our many questions about the Inn's activities, and was quick to respond to special requests. We highly recommend The Inn of the Seventh Mountain, whether you are bringing the entire family or slipping away for a quite weekend.
Wonderful family resort
We took our whole family to the Inn of the Seventh Mountain. We have 4 kids ranging in age from 13 to 3. Our condo was roomy, the activities were great, the food was good, and the whole environment was extremely kid-friendly. We felt it was an excellent value for the price and our children are begging us to go back.
An awesome family vacation spot!
I stayed at the Inn with my family and had a great time. The staff was so helpful and courteous and the condos were great. I had a view of the Deschutes River and would spend every morning either on my bike or jogging on the many trails right out my bedroom window.
My kids loved the big field, on-property river rafting, kids camp, moutain biking and of course the swimming pool complete with a slide.
The new restaurant was great too. We didn't even have to go into town to get a good meal and relax.
I can't wait to come back and try out one of their newly rennovated rooms - my kids have already planned the date!!
New Rooms Are Great
Just got back from the Inn and Stayed in a newly remodeled unit, they are absolutely wonderful. The construction was never a bother and the new rooms have been long awaited for. After staying at the Inn for several years this was one of the best stays yet. The new managment is making things better and better with all the improvements. I don't know what the crazy lady was talking about the construction.
Great new rooms!
We have been coming to the Inn of the Seventh Mountain for years. We've always loved the property and the recreational opportunities as well as the peaceful setting. On our last visit we stayed in one of the newly remodled rooms and loved it! We are thrilled to see the property being restored to its "glory days".The Gray Hawk Grill was stellar. We enjoyed every meal, and can't wait to return.
Very noisy-under construction!
We went there to stay on Friday and Saturday nights. We had a 1 bedroom condo unit. The whole place is being remodeled and with the pounding, stomping up the stairs, can hear through the walls, people upstairs arguing, truck back up beepers. Not very quiet or relaxing! This was also going on Saturday too! They moved us to a different room on Saturday, but it took them until 1 in the afternoon, so we wasted half the day! That room had a bat in the loft! We left early Sunday morning to go home to get some rest,
