Homestead Lodge

"This lodge is one of La Pine's best kept secrets. Peaceful, quiet, beautiful, just what we needed. Your hospitality is gracious. Kitchenette was handy. Thanks so much. We will be back.!"  - Beckers, Monmouth, OR

"Our Central Oregon family was looking for a place to gather with our Southern Oregon family, for the Holidays. It was my daughter's birthday weekend so we decided to check this place out. DiamondStone is an excellent spot for family or group get togethers. The kitchen is beautiful; spacious, well stocked with pots, pans and dishes. WiFi was good. The place is layed out so you're all together but have your own private spaces too. The atmosphere is warm and cozy. Good laughs, good times made some wonderful memories."  - Andersons, Bend, OR

"My husband and I married at Diamondstone in October 2015. Our friends and family enjoyed our choice of venue for it's coziness and comfort. After the wedding, guests enjoyed quite an after party and it was great to do that and not worry about anyone driving home. It was wonderful to have our family stay with us and share a few days of beautiful weather in a picturesque town. Thanks Doug for helping take group photos! We highly recommend Diamondstone, especially in the great October weather. We highly recommend for family reunions. "   - Westfalls, Bend/Redmond

"What a comfortable retreat in your special Hawaiian lodge. We had fun hanging out with our kids. The boys tried real hard to catch fish but came up with lots of crawdads - which we BBQ'd! We saw quail with their babies, a deer and many beautiful birds. Slept like babies. Hope to be back soon."    - Jim & Theda, Waterford, MI

"After relaxing in the hot tub, and the brisk high desert evening, I slept more soundly than I have in months! The accommodations were absolutely wonderful and we appreciate the "special touches.'"    - B. Hyman 

"Our family had an experience of a lifetime at this cabin. When we first arrived a soothing ambiance carried throughout. The owners were wonderful and gave us free tickets to an acoustic guitar performance in Bend that turned out to be one of the most memorable dates my fiance and I have ever had. We came back to enjoy 5 nights in the cabin. The open kitchen was wonderful; I wanted to keep cooking. The unique theme,with paintings and lighting made us all feel very cozy in this one of a kind Maluhia log cabin in the forest. We extended our stay, because we didn't want to leave. We hiked to the river with our son, spent time out in the yard and on the beautiful front porch. This is a place we will definitely return to in the future!!!!!
