Perfect for Inspiration.

“My wife and I are writers. We travel for inspiration. Rocking CR Ranch Guesthouse gave us the open air, nature, mountains, and space to inspire each in our own way. Thank you for sharing your home with us.”

Staying at the Rocking CR Ranch Guesthouse with two young grandchildren in early spring was so much fun. Spacious, clean, light-filled, and comfortable both inside and outside (with a pretty, covered patio adjacent to gardens), the guesthouse is situated on five scenic acres with expansive views of the mountains beyond. Driving just minutes away, we enjoyed tobogganing, snowman-building, hiking, and dining and shopping in Bend and Sisters. Over our five days at the guesthouse, our hosts, Caroline and Doug, were most hospitable, ensuring that even a vacation with an 18-month-old was enjoyable. We made beautiful family memories there and look forward to returning during the different seasons. My grandchildren can’t wait to have another opportunity to greet and feed their new friends -- the goats next-door!


Great for extended Business stay!

“I spent a week at the Rocking CR Ranch Guesthouse while on business in Bend and it was a refreshing change from the typical week of hotel life! It is just up the road from a couple cool places to eat in Tumalo. Alternatively, Trader Joe’s is close by for meal planning. Caroline is a gracious hostess and guided me for a bike ride past the Alpaca Farm, the Lavender Farm and the Buffalo Ranch. Sisters is a short hop away for more challenging bike trails. Great place to relax!”

Close and Quiet.

“Thank you Caroline for sharing your lovely guest house,  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.  It is very close to Bend and would be a great place to stay for anyone looking for accommodations in the Bend area.  We would gladly choose it again.”

We had a wonderful time at the Rocking CR Guest House! The ranch property is stunning, with views at the front of the property of the Sisters mountains, and gorgeous wide-open rural scenery. The guest house is fantastic. It is charming, and very comfortable. It was excellent for our family of four, with two small children. There was plenty of space for everyone to settle in comfortably. The location is perfect for exploring in and around Bend. It's just a short, ten minute drive into downtown Bend, and a short drive to great trail heads and snow play for the kids. We visited at the very beginning of spring, and experienced some light leftover winter weather, which was beautiful. We can't wait to return in the summer. There is so much family fun in this area of Central Oregon year round, and Rocking CR Guest House is an awesome place to stay. I highly recommend this place for families, solo travelers, or couples. We can't wait to return! —Juliana

Take a break from the hustle and bustle.
