We have been renting out The Bend on Hood Canal since 2007. It truly is a joy meeting our clients and seeing their expression when they see the property in person for the first time. That's what makes it worth while. We designed and built this beautiful gathering house to entertain in. It has so much to offer even if you are just looking to get away to enjoy the water, mountains and a tremendous sunset or celebrating the special moments in your life. Come on out to The Bend on Hood Canal and create memories of a lifetime.
Our family came together for our first ever all family reunion at The Bend. We are a diverse group - 22 in all - ages
2 to 75 - from Australia, England, Montana, and Washington. Our 4 days were over the top - better than ever expected! It was if time stopped for a bit and we were together in this splendid place enjoying each other and our surroundings. We dug clams and oysters for our seafood dinner, sat in the sun, had a campfire, played pool, wii,
had a barbeque, etc. By chance, we discovered the salmon run on the Skokomish River. The fisherpeople among us were delighted - they didn't catch anything, but they had a great time trying!
The Bend is a remarkable facility - elegant and comfortable at the same time. The amenities are top drawer, we didn't need to bring a thing but our food. Try it out - I guarantee you'll love it! Deni Christensen
“Hood Canal has a rejuvating quality about it. It allows you to kick back and take it all in. If you don't feel like going out to one of our fabulous resturants for your meals you might want to stop by the public beaches and pick up dinner yourself. Make sure to get your shellfish license and then head out for clams, oysters, and of course dungeness crab. Sit on the deck, around the firepit or snuggle up by the fireplace and enjoy the fare we do best - Northwest Seafood! Now if you really want to get in touch with Hood Canal how about a kayak ride, boat tour, sunset cruise. How about watching fireworks bursting on every side as you lounge in the spa? The Bend has tremendous view second to none. You have an unobstructed view from Hoodsport to the Skok River on up towards Annas Bay. WOW just doesn't say it but we'll count on you to put it in words when you arrive. The family's in the car, so what are you waiting for?”
“The Bend is a year round vacation destination property. I have had more families say that their teens were only coming part of the time. I always encourage them to come at the beginning. Once they get here they are elated that they came. Between the pool table, foosball, DVD collection, and of course the Wii entertainment comes easy. Friends that come to do a yearly reunion are rebooking. They love that they can all be in the same space when they want to do the 'remember when' stories and yet have a another floor to get away for a little space or a nap. The kitchen has enough counter space to have 8-10 cooking, prepping, and more if the cook and chief bottlewashers are working at the same time. The compliment that I get the most is thank you for being there to answer questions. I believe 'yes we can' is the answer. So book your reservation and come out to The Bend on Hood Canal and see why we spend so much time smiling around here!”
