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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

We had a fantastic experience at The Bend!

  • 5 of 5
What a treat it was to stay at The Bend in Union, WA. We had some fairly high expectations based on the website, which were all surpassed! Our family of 9 had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the incredible scenery. The house is gorgeous, and had all of the top class amenities and and kitchen items to make this a really special getaway.

Bonnie the owner was a great help in arranging our visit. She even arranged for us to have perfect weather while there. We found most of our time was spent on the incredible deck, looking over the canal and off to the mountains. Sunsets are incredible, and then later more stars in the sky than most have ever seen.

Union offers a small quiet life, with a couple of nice restaurants, a general store with the best ice cream in the West, along with beautiful hiking trails and activities in the water.

We will definitely go back and spend our time at The Bend. Thanks Bonnie!

weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
It was an absolute pleasure dealing with the homeowner in the planning for a very large group outing. She was a consummate professional throughout the entire process. We had 20+ people and everybody was blown away by the house. It reminded me of one of those houses you see in MTV Cribs - very impressive. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed. Great for a get-together with several families with kids.

We have had our Annual Christmas Party at the Bend for the last 3 years and have always had a wonderful time! The venue is perfect for entertaining our staff and their families and they ask to return there year after year.
Bonnie is always helpful and accommodating - right there with anything we need.
Love the Bend!

Wonderful place, immaculately maintained, great location

  • 5 of 5
My "Tribe" of ~ 20 + college friends and family stayed here two years in a row on Thanksgiving weekend. It is a fabulous home, clean, big, room for lots of gathering, games, plenty of room to cook and prepare a huge "second" Thanksgiving dinner, bake pies, etc. Bonnie is a wonderful and gracious host, has thought of everything!

FABULOUS Wedding Venue

  • 5 of 5
Expectations were high on the Bend, and they were fully met. Staying 3 nights for our wedding, we hoped for an outdoor ceromony, but had contingency plans if the weather didn't cooperate. Bonnie and Jeff went overboard to make sure everything was how we wanted it and were prepared to move furniture if the wedding venue came indoors. They recommended the caterers (Wild and Woodsy) which were supurb. In addition to Bend being spotless on arrival, many luxury features added to the elegance of the home....The indoor accent lighting, the regulating stereo system through out the home, multi refigerators, 2 micowaves and ovens, the oversized wet bar, the view of Hood Canal and Olympic Mtns, etc. Without doubt, The Bend is a fantastic place, well maintained, and hosts that truly care about their guests.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This place is my castle, my home away from home. I've had some of the most incredible weekends away here, including the most epic bachelorette party that a girl could ask for. I recommend this to anyone - come with your family and/or friends anytime of the year and be prepared for an extremely relaxing, wonderful time away. The view - unbeatable! And the owners - THE BEST! I wish I was there right now.

Location

From the Owner

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?

Amenities

From the Owner

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!
