About the Owner

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.

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

This amazing place deserves another review

  • 5 of 5

This is a year old, and for what it's worth I'm writing this as I'm booking this place again. AMAZING! Every bit of it, the view, the digs, the quality of the space, the ENORMOUS home (I mean it fits 6 families comfortably, you can get lost it's so darn big) and for families with young kids, epic! It has a park walking distance away with a big green space and playground equipment. We even took our 10 toddler girls to the local fire station and got a free tour!

I'm telling you, I've been booking friend get together trips for years, and this is hands down the best place I've ever stayed in. Other specifics: the deck, epic, the kitchen, UNREAL (did I mention 2 fridges in the main kitchen and keg/beer fridges in the huge bar?!), the bedrooms, all spacious, and the quality of the craftsmanship is second to none, I mean it has granite floors for Pete's sake!

Lastly, I met the owner, SUPER gracious and she built this with her husband and their own bare hands, they are licensed contractors and the pride they took in the quality is obvious.

Do yourself a favor and book it blind, and you'll be the start of your group!

New Years Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Over the New Year’s Holiday weekend, our family and friends celebrated New Years and a retirement at The Bend. The Bend is an incredible home to accommodate friends and family for preparing/eating meals and sleeping, and very nicely decorated. Between the local activities available, pool table, foosball, playing games, watching football, hot-tubbing, and visiting, four generations (25 adults and 3 children) never felt crowded and everyone enjoyed themselves. We could not have asked for better weather (cool and crisp, with snow on the ground) to enjoy the spectacular panoramic views. The owners were wonderful to work with. We hope to have another family function at the Bend in the future.

Group 50th birthday retreat

  • 5 of 5

Wow... I almost didn't want to write a review, somehow thinking to keep the Bend a secret. Silly me. Plain and simple, the place was incredible! Accomodations; comfort, kitchen, bar, couches, deck, patio, spa, covered entry, bedding - all first class. This home is vast, immaculate and was built for entertaining.

We hosted a weekend retreat for 14 friends, 9 of which, all turn 50-years old within a couple months of each other. Hence, a group birthday was in order and the Bend was a perfect venue. There is plenty to do on property and off the property (close by) at all times of year too. As you will read in other reviews, owner Bonnie, was a pleasure to work with. She was very open and helpful to make sure we understood how to use everything and maximize our stay. I could go on, but there is no need. The pictures do not do justice of how big and fantastic this place really is. Go enjoy... you will never regret it.

Guys Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely amazing! The pictures DO NOT do justice for this place. It has everything including an amazing view. The place is huge, quiet and so peaceful. We had about 14 guys who had a relaxing weekend from BBQ, drinks, poker and football. The owner Bonnie is so awesome and very helpful. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a girls/guys weekend, couples retreat, family reunion weekend or just about anything else. Fantastic view, all my friends loved the place and I couldn't of been happier with the selection. Thank you "The Bend"

Gals getaway and retreat

  • 5 of 5

There is a group of 20 of us gals that have been coming to the Bend twice a year for the past several years. It's the perfect place. Even with a large group, we are not on top of each other. There is enough space to break off to visit, watch a movie, put together a puzzle, and still have some alone space if needed. Bonnie is great and has made us feel at home since the very first time we arrived. We've never been to a place that is so accommodating and we've gone to many before finding this beautiful home. We've enjoyed beautiful weather most times and even were blessed with a storm that just made us honker down and enjoy the warmth and safe feeling that The Bend provides. House is always clean and inviting. Our wishes are always met, even having a massage therapist arriving at the home for massages for those that want them. We are an older group of women and some prefer not to share a room, but there are so many little spots for an air mattress that we've never been anything but comfortable. There is not one negative thing that I could post. Every suggestion that we've made has been provided for by the next time we've visited. Never been to another home that is remotely comparable to this one.

Great boys golf trip at the Bend on Hood Canal

  • 5 of 5

Organized a boys golf trip from Canada down for the US Open. Your always nervous of being responsible for other peoples fun but the house did not disapoint! There was 8 of us and there was so much room, it was amazing. The kitchen was great and the bar area was a hit. Amazing time had by all. Highly recommend this house, would be great for a family reunion or large family gathering for sure.

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?

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!
