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 …
The areas we went to today are part of the Newberry Crater. It is only 12 miles to Lava Cast Forest from our condo. However, a lot of the road was a bumpy dirt road and took quite some time to get there It is 40 degrees with a few black clouds in the sky. It was windy which made it feel so much colder.
Lava Cast Forest was estabished in 1942 by ...
... on by 8. We named our van big poppa! We past a lot more farming and forestry and headed into the hills, a single snow tipped mountain lied in the middle. Mt Shasta was a big mountain that was much taller than anything else. Further south we found a gorgeous blue lake/dam with multiple houseboats. The further south we got the hotter it started to become. Allana chucked on the shorts and we both put on our thongs! We stopped ...
... just outside of town. Opened in 1982, it brings regional wildlife, culture, art and natural resources together to promote an understanding of natural and cultural heritage of North America’s high desert country. The museum uses indoor and outdoor exhibits, wildlife in natural-like habitats, and living history demonstrations to help people discover and appreciate the high desert environment.
We later went downtown to check-out the open market.
Further south and more fruit and varied crops abound with some fantastic smells.
Changing the subject. You guys are confused by roundabouts but how on earth do you deal with 4 way stop junctions?
I have found the best way is to run them at about 30mph, don't slow down and don't give way to anything. Everyone seems to be so confused at them that if you take this positive approach everyone assumes you are in the ...

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,
