Homestead Lodge

“Thanks again for another 3-generation great weekend!  We love having enough rooms for each family unit – it helps when someone needs a nap or just some space.  We had a good time bowling in LaPine, winter sledding, & just hanging out playing games!”  – Elliotts, Estacada, February, 2019

“The Pond /Queen Suite was lovely! We were so comfortable and had everything we needed. Shower was out of this world! Watts were warm and welcoming. Stay with them!” – Bottenseks, November, 2019 

“This house is huge! Sparkling clean with thoughtful touches. It was perfect for our business’s annual gathering. Plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing but to also gather and play games. Can’t wait to go back! – E. Smith, November, 2019

“This lodge is absolutely perfect. We hosted a wedding ceremony and party here. The outdoor space was perfect for an intimate reception and the back porch made an excellent dance floor!! The hosts really made our stay and wedding run smoothly. – K. Zion, September, 2019

“We had a huge crew at the lodge for our family reunion. Lots of kids roaming the property and loving everything about it. The house has amazing space. It was nice to have individual suites and rooms to help organize family groups. The location is wonderful. Outside of the busyness of Bend. Close to awesome national parks, lakes, hiking, etc. Couldn’t have asked for a better stay. Hosts were very accommodating. Highly recommend!” – A. Davis, Los Angeles, July, 2019

“Great stay in the “King / Fall” Suite” Friendly hosts! As much or as little interaction as you want. They provided ideas of things to do in the area. They made sure we felt welcomed with a message prior to arrival, and offered a late check out as we were in a snow storm. The bed was so comfy and the shower was like a spa! It was a great winter stay over all.” – J. Koepp, February, 2019

“We had a wonderful time in Homestead Lodge over Thanksgiving, and celebrating Jay’s birthday!  Thank you for once again for the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful home and the scenery of Central Oregon.  Our sister joined us from England and loved the accommodations.  She is on route to New Zealand to see her daughter and family.  Hopefully, they will come and visit us in Oregon in a year or so and we would love to stay at the Homestead Lodge again.  It is so perfect for larger gatherings.” – the Hammonds, Dayton, OR, Nov. 2018

“The house is spectacular and housed our large group wonderfully. It’s like 4 units in one big lodge. It worked perfectly for our group that was a mix of young kids, early risers and late night partieers. Everyone was able to relax and get what they needed from the lodge and the weekend.” – Jitesh, Portland, March, 2018

“Great place! A nice kitchen and outdoor grill. We had a great time at the lodge, plenty of room and it was well stocked with pots, pans and dishes. Thanks for such wonderful accommodations.” – the Claytons, Portland, August 2018

“Wish we could have stayed longer. This 4Seasons Suite is amazing. The secluded setting is peaceful and the house itself is larger and more stylish than it appears in the photos. Very comfortable and spacious place filled with everything you need including a fun collection of movies, board games and books.”  M. Arnold, Portland, July, 2018

“We stayed at the lodge while having a wedding at Sunriver Resort. It was handy to our location, and had plenty of room for our requirements. Gloria was lovely to speak to at check-in, and left us to do our own thing afterwards. The lodge was well furnished for the two families, 10 people, we had staying there. It was very warm, even with all the snow around outside. We had a great time and recommend this lodge.”  Jon, New Zealand, Jan. 2018

“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, Sept. 2017

“Thanks for a wonderful weekend! Our 3 generation family truly enjoyed the house. Plenty of room for everyone. Our grandkids had a blast checking out all the different rooms and spending time with cousins, indoors and out. We’ll be back.”  – Elliotts, Portland, December 2017

“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, 2016

“This house was perfect to host our small family wedding! First day of spring, first day as a married couple. Thank you for providing a quality place. Here comes the bride!”   Davidsons, La Pine locals, July, 2016

“Thanks for letting 16 ladies enjoy a weekend away. It was awesome; we will be back!” – Bonnie, Grass Valley, CA, August, 2016

“Surrounded by trees and SNOW, plus an easy ride to Mt. Bachelor We loved the openness and spaciousness of this gorgeous home. Five bedrooms were perfect for our family of eight adults, three children, and two dogs. We’re already talking about our next stay here.” – Judie, Tigard, OR, Nov. 2016

“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, Oct. 2015

“We just had the ultimate motorcyclists’ vacation! Got to ride some amazing bikes, seeing wonderful vistas. Enjoyed the moto-garage hospitality and talking bikes with you. Thanks again.” – Richard S., Philadelphia, PA, June, 2015

“Came here with my brother from Sequium, WA on our motos. We had a very relaxed stay. This place is low key with attention to details. Very accommodating and fun. We’ll be back!” – Nina, San Diego, Sept. 2014

“Boy did we need to come here! We stayed in the 4Seasons Suite. Kids, jobs, life, etc. – whew! It was so nice just to get away for a couple of days. Now we’re so refreshed and renewed. What a special stay in a comfy place surrounded by nature. We’ll be back for sure. – Elin & Ken, Bend, OR, April, 2014
