The sunriver experience is relaxing.
Deer1 was a decent place to stay,but I won't stay there again during the winter. The place was drafty and the fireplace was on high to keep it some what comfortable. We were hoping the hot tub would be available,but we can understand why it wasn't. We will probably be looking to rent a more up to date place next time. Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 02/17/2014
Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at 1 Deer. I am sorry to hear that the house did not meet your expectations and that you were not able to use the hot tub. This house is a small and cozy, affordable cabin in Sunriver and the fireplace is definitely the way to keep it warm and comfortable in the winter time. The hot tub has since been repaired and the owners have made several additional improvements: The house has all new honeycomb cellular shades window coverings as well as all new cushions on the furniture in the living room. There is also an additional chair which has been added to the living room. The owners care very much about guest feedback and it is very much appreciated. We will look into the issues of draftiness in the winter and there are several more updates coming as well.

The home was comfortable.
The upstairs shower was extremely small. You should have mentioned that when I called to rent the home.
The circular staircase and the edge of the loft was not safe for children. The opening between the bars were way too big and hazardous. I was going to invite my son and his family for a visit but couln't due to this potential hazard.
The sliding glass door did not lock. Yes, there was a rod to put in, but it still didn't feel safe.
A drawer in the kitchen that contained the eating utensils had no stop so the whole drawer could come falling down. Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 02/17/2014
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay at 1 Deer. I agree with you that this home is a comfortable smaller home and reasonably priced options for Sunriver. Some of it's design features, while fun and interesting (like the spiral staircase), may not be for everyone. We will make a note to remind guests of this if they are planning on bringing small children. Also, please keep in mind that you can always give us a call during your stay if you ever find anything remiss in the home, and we will do whatever we can to remedy the situation. If your son was coming with his small children, we would have brought you some baby gates to secure the gaps in the railing and also we would have been more than happy to repair the kitchen drawer. The drawer and sliding glass door have since been addressed. We hope that we will see you again in Sunriver and we would be happy to find you with a home that is the perfect match for your family's needs.

Fun Week-end and Overall Great experience
The process to book our reservation was very easy and their customer service person was very friendly and pleasant to talk with on the phone. The process was explained thoroughly and the email reminders were helpful. I tend to do a lot of my tasks electronically and they made it extremely easy. When we arrived we found several issues with the house that really needed to be resolved so that we could enjoy our stay (i.e. the largest burner on the stove didn't work and we were trying to cook & feed 5 people, the gas grill was inoperable, etc.). The Bennington maintenance crew (I laugh because the poor guy was working the whole week-end by himself I think) was spectacular and resolved all of our major issues in a very timely manner on a very busy week-end (Memorial Day). We will definitely book again!!
Camano Island WA
The customer service we received from Bennington Properties was exceptional & very professional-couldn't have asked for more! Website was very helpful and easy to navigate with los of information. Property was very well equipped and clean-it did need updating-we left a note/list to that effect at the house.
I was not happy with the house
The house was much older than I thought. I did not think the pictures clearly reflected the property. There were several things that did not work...blender, shower head downstairs and blinds in livingroom just to name a few. I would not rent this property again. I think the owners either need to fix and update this property or lower the price way down.
Family Spring Break Fun!
My husband, 2 kids and I had a great time during Spring Break! Deer 1 was spacious and comfortable. It is conveniently located close to the village. The kids and I were able to walk to the grocery store, get ice cream and go ice skating. It was an easy walk or bike ride to the Sharc to go swimming and sit in the hot tub. We drove to go skiing at Mt. Bachelor 3 days. It was a wonderful stay and we'll be back!
good place if preheated
great rental, however most of it is heated up by a wall controlled thermostat; we were very cold the first day because the house was close to the ambient temperatures (and water frozen) and it took full 24 h to heat it up. Otherwise it is close to the town center
Relaxing time had by all.
The home was perfect for our needs. October was a wonderful time to visit if your looking for peace & quiet. Nice to have the hot tub. Made sure to get lost wandering the bike paths thru Sunriver on our first night. But its a great way to see deer up close & personal, "my what big ears you have". Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 11/05/2012
Sounds like you had a close encounter with some of the locals your first night!
October is a great time. Glad the home worked well for you.
There were 4 of us, my husband and I and our daughter and her friend, and the house was big enough for us to all hang out together, or spend time apart - the girls had the upstairs to themselves.
My 13 year old daughter and her friend loved the spiral staircase.
The house was clean and cozy.
My only recommendation would be to replace the pans; all but one were in pretty rough shape.
We appreciated being able to check in and out over the house phone - very convenient!
And the Sharc passes were nice to have since it was one of the few rainy visits we've ever had to Sunriver. Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 11/01/2012
That is a really nice location being so close to the Village and the SHARC.
We will check the pans immediately.
Nice Place but a ilittle disappointing
The house itself was fair especially for being dog friendly. Bennington left a fun package for my dog and his name was on it which was sweet. A couple disappointing things. If you are coming over to Sunriver please be aware that the outdoor part of the shark is closed during the week. So plan to go on the weekend if you want the lazy river, slides, etc. We were not aware of this and didn't think to call so we were waiting until Monday to go and ended up not experiencing any of it. Also my father had a stroke several years ago and one of my first questions is "Does this place have a shower on the main floor that is a step in with only about 3" to stop over to get in?" I was told yes but this is not true. The downstairs bath is a tub and the upstairs bath is a walk in shower but a spiral staircase to get to the second floor so no way could my dad do that. Anyways it was scary when my father got in the shower, almost fell. The kitchen needs some things like mixing bowls. Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 10/05/2012
Yes, that is unfortunate you missed the outdoor portion of the SHARC. They had originally planned to close the outdoor pools on Labor Day but then decided to do weekends only through September.
I apologize about the mis-information on the shower.
Hope Jonas had fun.
End of Summer Getaway.
We had a great time at Deer 1.
It is cozy and comfortable and after a while it begins to feel like home.
It isn't a new property with all the updated amenities, but it provided us a great place to return to after a day of swimming, hiking, riding and all the other fun activities that Sunriver has to offer.
Response from Bennington Properties - 09/11/2012
Great little location isn't it?
Glad you enjoyed it and got to do all the fun things in Sunriver.
Should've stayed longer
It was a nice little house, needs some updating though which is why it did'nt get 5 stars. But overall it's really cozy, i loved the layout, the loft area. My dog had fun but he had a hard time negotiating the spiral stair case, luckily there are stairs on the outside of the house as well. The hot tub and location were the big sellers for me. Overall I would come back to the house and probably will next year. Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 06/21/2012
That is a great location.
Hope Jimmy had fun.
The good & the could have been better
Generally...we were pleased with our stay at Deer1. There were some issues -
a) water leak, which we reported but the maintenance team was unable to fix while we were there resulting in a single shower available for all that were there
b) the lower bathroom which became our single shower did not have a fan, therefore the window had to be left open during showering to remove the steam
c) the pans are pretty beat up and not very good sizes available of pots to do cooking, resulting in our food sticking
d) cob webs next to fireplace - reported while we were there
e) the backporch door mat stayed wet all the time, maybe need a different kind that will drain and dry
f) hot tub could have been hotter, but was otherwise nice and clean
g) beds were real comfy Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 04/04/2012
We really appreciate your feedback.
The plumbing has been repaired. I am forwarding your other comments on to our Property Services team.
Beautiful piece of property, very warm and cozy!
We had a great time and loved this house! Everything worked well and was cozy and inviting! Thank you so much Bennington Properties for an awesome experience from the time I made the first call to helping us extend our stay for another 4 days. Definately the best manamgement property we have ever dealt with!
Again thank you from the Mann Family! Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 03/07/2012
Thanks again Elisa,
Great place, well kept, and awesome management
Everything was well kept, the hot tub was great to soak in after all day boarding. The management even let us have a late checkout, so we could hit the slopes all day Sunday, return to the house shower up and then head out. Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 02/14/2012
Glad you had a good time on the hill and in Sunriver. Hope you enjoyed the location being so close to the Village.
Convenience in gorgeous setting
Great house with lots of space, excellent location. Enjoyed your books, puzzles, ad hottub. Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 01/13/2012
That is a nice location being so close to the Village and soon the new Aquatic Center.
Glad you enjoyed your stay.
great Pet Rental close to the Village
Had a great stay in this unit. This home was very comfortable. Loved the deck, gas fireplace and of course the hot tub. This home is very well priced. The only reason it did not get 5 stars across the board was due to the beds. The beds were very uncomfortable and could at least use a padded cover. We understand that new mattresss can be expensive. This was our first time renting with Bennington and the check in process was very easy. We will definately consider this unit and other Bennington Properties again for our next visit.
Do any of your rentals come with use of Mavericks? Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 10/10/2011
We will contact the owners about the beds. Starting in May 2012, all our guests will have free, unlimited access to the new Sunriver Aquatic center with indoor and outdoor pools.
Another relaxing stay in Sunriver at a Bennington Property!
This home is in a great location. We never needed the car. So nice to just walk or bike to the village. The house was a good size for the 3 of us and our dog. It was comfortable and clean, but the couch and chair downstairs could really use some updating! I would only recommend this house for 4 or less people, as there is only seating for that many.Our dog felt very welcome with all of his Bennington treats! We had a great time and will definately be back to Sunriver! Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 09/02/2011
That is a great locattion.
Hope Max had a good time.
Maple Valley, WA
Deer 1 was very convenient to the Village and restaurants. The folks at Bennington Properties were great. We took our dogs with us and they had bowls, treats, balls, and bandanas waiting for us. The house was comfortable for the 4 of us. It could've been cleaner. It was a bit dusty and there were pastry boxes in the closet upstairs under the extra blankets. The bathrooms and other rooms were clean, however. Overall, it was a great experience. Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 07/26/2011
Glad you enjoyed yourselves. Hope Rex and Lucy had a good time as well.
Comfortable and relaxing
We throughly enjoyed our stay. From the very beginning when we walked into the door of the house and saw the fire burning in the fireplace and music softly playing, we felt at home. Our dog Beau felt very special too with his new dog dish, treats, ball, bandanna, and special tag for his collar - just in case he should get lost. We also really appreciated the dog park area made available to us.
The next time we want to rent a place, we will call on Bennington Properties. Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 10/14/2010
Thanks so much Sylvia. We do love our dogs. Glad Beau had a good time.
Lake Oswego, OR
Our time in Sunriver, in this house, is like coming home.
We have been staying in Deer #1 for almost 20 years. It is a small, no frills house, which for us is part of the charm. We are in close quarters, but love the way it feels. No better way to spend time with family than playing games, watching movies, taking walks, riding bikes, cooking simple meals. The entire experience, which includes this house, has become a very important ritual to our family. Great memories, which again, center on this very house. If you are looking for a large, updated house, this isn't the place for you. Think of this as your cabin in the woods.
Get Away Girls
We had so much fun!!!
We weren't looking for a lot just a weekend away with the girls, and it totally met are needs. It had everything we needed and the location was great on the end with no neighbor on the side with the hot tub. The deck was great really big upstairs and down we got the most of it. It was cozy and clean worth the money. Maybe they could update the furniture and Tv's and bikes watch the blue one the seat turns all around couldn't get it to tighten. Over all though we had fun we will be back next year watch out! Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 08/22/2010
Thank you, Melanie. Your girls weekend sounds like it was a lot of fun. We appreciate your feedback.
Good Location, Thoughtful Service from Bennington
This home needs a little updating but for my short stay it was just fine. Needed a little heavier cleaning - cobwebs, etc. I really liked that everything we needed to prepare meals, etc. was available. And the note about cribs, etc. was great! The movies we requested were waiting on arrival. Thanks! We'll use Bennington again, although when we come with family we'll need a bigger place! Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 08/21/2010
Thank you, Kathy!
Good experience with some caveats
The location of the house was good it was quiet but close the the store and the amenities of Sunriver but surprisingly quiet. The size of the house was perfect for my wife and I and our adult kids who dropped in for a night or two. The wifi and electronics worked fine too. The house was in fairly bad repair though. Bathrooms had mold in the grout, sinks were rusty the locks on the sliding doors didn't function and lengths of wood were used to block the door closed when you left. The dry wall has water damage in the baths as well. So overall the experience was good but the condition of the baths left the feeling that the place hadn't been cared for and wasn't entirely clean. Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 07/29/2010
Roger, thank you for your review. I will have our maintenance team take care of these issues right away. This is not the type of experience we want our guests to have, so please accept my apologies that you found one of our homes in a state of disrepair.
the budget visit
My family and I decided we wanted to get away for a
quick spring trip to Sunriver. We have stayed several
times in the past in several seasons and cabins. We
knew the prices were reasonable since it is off
season and we got a smaller cabin that was on the
cheaper side. This cabin was definitely smaller and
left much to be desired. I was glad for the new
carpet but the rest of the furniture and appliances
were quite old and run down. The cabin did appear
clean, however I noticed cobwebs in the corners and
ceiling. Overall, it was a decent place but next time
we will spend a bit more for something nicer. Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 05/19/2010
Hi Beth, thank you for your review of 1 Deer. We appreciate your honest feedback and take your comments very seriously. The owners of 1 Deer have been working on a number of improvements (new carpet, etc.), however they do have older furniture as you mentioned (although it is well loved). Overall, it is hard to beat the price and location of this little home. The cobwebs in the vaulted ceiling are always a challenge to get down, but I will make sure housekeeping takes care of those right away. Thanks again, Beth. We really appreciate your family's business.
pleasant,comfortable winter retreat
We spent 2 days and 2 nights here over the holiday week. We found the space very comfortable and clean and with a well equiped kitchen. The hot tub was clean and worked well and was a pleasant escape . The home is in easy walking distance of the the shops and restaurants which we utilized. It was also close enough to walk to the golf course for some nice cross country skiing. The only criticism, and it was minor, was the heating system and trying to keep the temperatures adjusted comfortably between a gas fireplace that is either on or off and noisy when the fan is blowing hot air even when it's off, and space heaters. Using a space heater in the small bathroom with no grounded bathroom outlet seemed inconvenient and potentially dangerous.
When calls were, made either to the office or the hot tub service staff,tom responses were timely and helpful.
Borders on Perfect
Nothing here to dislike; home is starting to need some cosmetic updates, but then the good rate might go away!
Great fireplace and decor, comfy beds, very clean, everything you could possibly need for cooking, using hot tub, entertaining yourself; quiet location. Communication and service provided by property management company is outstanding!
Reasonable and comfortable but a bit tired.
The price was good, and it met our basic needs but is clearly in need of some serious updating. The bathrooms are pretty tired, and the area is small compared to other places that we have stayed in Sun River. Really no windows to look out and enjoy the view. Unlike other places that we have stayed, we probably will not return to Deer 1. The hot tub was great though.
The service from BP was great...helpful and friendly, but I would have wished a better lead on the actual unit. We may have been able to stay in a great unit for just a little bit more??
I want to move to Sunriver!
This was our family's first trip to Sunriver. Viewing available property and making reservations was so easy to do on the website. We stayed at 1 Deer Lane. We loved the home, it was comfortable and the kids also loved the board game selection. It was a great location, close to the mall. The weather was great, we had a wide range of 90+ degrees at the beginning of the week to 50+ at the middle. We visited the High Desert Museum, Lava Cast forest, Lava Lands/Lava Butte, went white river rafting, and bicycle riding on the network of trails, visited the Sunriver observatory at night (unfortunately we had cloud cover and couldn't see much) but we had a blast and plan to return next summer! Our time went by toooo fast. Thank you!
Good house in great location
We enjoyed our stay. The house is good and the location is great. The only issue we had was that the iron was very old. As a result, it left black marks when used and actually even burned a hole in my shirt. Good house but bring your own iron if you are staying there.
Very nice facility
Deer 1 was perfect for our family vacation experience!

Great Relaxing Place
We had such a nice relaxing time. The floor plan allows for everyone to be together yet have some privacy too. The gas fireplace was warm and made the cabin all the more comfy. Nice new carpet, comfortable beds.
My daughter and her friend enjoyed playing one of the available games in the loft and we all had a blast in the hot tub. The hot tub water had not been emptied from the last guest and we had to call someone to drain it and refill it. The hot tub serviceman came out within minutes. We rode the bikes from the shed several times all over this amazing place and got really good exercise.
The deck is an excellent design. It must be perfect for summer folks wanting to barbecue.
We could have used more hand towels and there wasn't a dustpan for sweeping up the floor. The bathroom heater needs fixing for winter folks. The dryer vent probably needs cleaning as it took forever for the towels to dry. The kitchen was fun to cook in and the sky lights are fantastic. My husband liked having the books to read and got to watch the basketball games on TV! (He was a happy camper). Thank you for allowing and welcoming dogs. We keep our dog clean and well mannered and it's important to us that he travels with us. We will recommend this place to our friends and will come again sometime!
We loved it from the time we stepped in to the time we left. We were welcomed by the flames/warmth from the gas fireplace and classical music. There were dog treats to welcome my 2 dogs who did not join us in the last minute. The home was spacious, clean and comforting. I’ve not stayed at a rental in Sunriver that would accommodate dogs, so I was impress that it was not “doggy”. I also loved the convenience to the Mall Village. My only complaint is that there were only 3 wine glasses. I highly recommend this place for 4-6 people +/- dogs, and would stay again.
Great Cabin in the Woods Getaway
This is a great getaway "cabin in the woods" home. We stayed in the house over 10 years ago - it snowed 3' feet that year! Some things were the same and some were updated. We really enjoyed the gas fireplace which heated most of the home. We also took advantage of the great hot tub. we hope your future stay brings you good memories. The Bradleys
This house/cottage is very cute and cozy has all the basics, I would
say very adequate for 2 couples. Fire place was awesome and the hot
tub was wonderful and in the summer the decks would also be a high
light. We have rented homes before, this home is not fancy but has
everything you need but its a bit of a miss match as far as how the
kitchen is stocked and furnished. We had a super time.
Dog friendly retreat
Dog friendly properties. Had very helpful staff and greatly enjoyed our stay.
Perfect quiet weekend getaway for 2
This property was EXACTLY what we were looking for. We needed some time away to get energized for the new work year, and had everything we wanted - cozy fireplace, short walking distance to the village, dog-friendly, cottage style w/ lodge decor, cozy, hot tub...JUST PERFECT!! This was our first time to the Sun River/Bend area and we loved it. We'll definitely go back and probably even try to stay in the same place. This is a great cottage for 2 couples as there is a bedroom/bath downstairs and upstairs and even a futon couch in a loft area upstairs near the deck, overlooking the kitchen. We only used the downstairs because our Duke was intimidated by the spiral staircase but it was perfect for us. We absolutely loved it! If you're looking for a modern home, this isn't the place for you. If you're looking for a cottage, cozy lodge-like feel, this is it!
Our Favorite Sun River Retreat
We love staying in this home! It is warm and comfortable and close to the mall. We love getting up early in the morning and walking for coffee right at the bottom of the hill.
For two couples it is very nice, with a bedroom downstairs and one upstairs. Each has access to a bath.
And best of all we can bring our dog!
Boulder City, Nevada
nsunriver is a nice place
We have spent that last 4 summers we have rented a house in Sunriver. Every house has been clean and well kept. My only complaint about Deer Lane was the master bed, very comfortable. The gas fire place is awesome. I would say that it is best for about 4 people only however.
The property itself is in need of an update, esp the restrooms, therefore i would not choose this particular property again. other then that we enjoyed ourselves immensely.
Great home, but not really pet friendly
We loved the home itself, but we were not told before renting that we couldn't leave our 2 little, well-behaved dogs in the house while we enjoyed the area. It was summer, and we couldn't take them in the car and leave them, so the vacation was not worth the money to us. We had to stay at home and couldn't go out to eat except late at night. Read more
Response from Bennington Properties - 10/24/2008
Information on what to do with your pets when you are visiting are sent out to all guests prior to arrival. The reason that it is not good to leave dogs in the home alone is that they are in a strange environment that they are not familiar with. They may be well behaved when they are home, but dogs in an unknown environment may bark excessively, may scratch at the doors when they are left alone and do other damage if their owners are not available. Owners of homes that have opened their doors to dogs also deserve the right to have their home treated with respect. It is our intent to have as many homes be pet friendly as possible, but this is the compromise we must make with our homeowners to have this option available to guests.
Great Snowboard Get Away
This is a great house. We shared with friends and had a wonderful time, warming by the fire after a day of snowboarding. Relaxing in the hottub from all of our falls.
The house is cozy and comfort!
Great place to stay
Great little house, perfect for our family. Great accessibility to the Sunriver mall and restaurants. Very clean-we were a little cautious because dogs are allowed in this rental property, but we were pleasantly surprised.
We walked out of the snow into a warm inviting home. We had a wonderful time staying at this home. We use Bennington Properties for vacation rentals when ever we stay in Sunriver. Our Bi-annual trip is not complete with out a stay at one of their well maintained homes. We always feel welcome and expected at their properties. We were even provided with a dog bowl and collar tag incase our dog was lost while we were staying with them.
Loved the Loft!
Our family looks forward to spending a few days in Sunriver, as an annual event. We loved this cabin, as it met all of our expectations of a Bennington property. We have made many wonderful memories here and hope to keep the tradition going for years to come! The cabin was enviting when we arrived, with lights, heator a/c and music on. Clear instructions on how to use the ammenities and current event information was so helpful! Our favorite welcome is the doggie treats for our dog. It truly makes us feel like our whole family is welcome.
The cabin was the perfect size for our family of four, and the circular stairwell was a hit! We spent cozy evenings sitting by the fire, sipping hot cocoa after soaking in the hottub. It was nice to have a variety of movies available. The kids loved the loft! Easy access to the bike paths, and the short distance to the Village made for many quick outings.
Thank you for the memories and helping us build a great family tradition. We'll definately come back to this cozy cabin!
