Wonderful Spot and Wonderful People

This was a really cool spot owned my some really cool people. If you think it would be cool to be around deer and turkey that get within arms reach (neither are trained to attack) this is the place for you! The hosts were super helpful, too. Very kind and interesting folks.

Great stay with easy access to Downtown Bend

Nice back in site with 30A and water available. Quiet neighborhood. Very accommodating host, he couldn’t be nicer!
Lots of fun socializing with the tame turkeys and deer. Thanks Greg

Terrific hosts, terrific spot!

These hosts are so friendly and generous! Our spot for the night was quiet, dark and level and the Tom Turkey was territorial (better than a watch dog! can't throw a turkey a piece of meat to distract it!) with great photo ops! Our hosts offered us lots of amenities which we took advantage of! Got tips about an exercise de-stink product which we are going to load up on! Ladies, not sure about you but my exercise tops gain an unpleasant scent over time and this stuff she turned me onto is the bomb-diggity! When we get back this way we are looking these folks up again! Highly recommend!

Deer and turkey, oh what fun!

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful, peaceful property. The hosts were so accommodating and fun and we really enjoyed the interesting chats. The water and electric hookups came in very handy as well, as it was pretty warm. When we arrived, a couple of deer came to say hello, and as we drove away, a very friendly turkey kept following us all the way to the street until he couldn't run anymore. Thank you so much BW!

Wow!!! What a treat to stay with Greg. Other than seeing 5 Deer....really up close.... and having a Big Wild Tom Turkey at our front door... nothing exciting happened.....haha. Greg really is a Deer Whisperer and you will be Extremely Impressed with him and the Deer and Turkeys that visit him. Greg was so gracious and we had a delightful time. Can’t say enough good things about him and our visit. A million thanks Greg. Russ and Cathy
