Clean, spacious, well equipped and plenty of firewood!
Jenny N. Jan 2019
This cabin was comfortable & had all the things a family needs to relax & keep kids occupied...the hot tub is a HIT!
Jeffrey H. Nov 2018
Loved this place. Fireplace was fantastic. House was very clean.
Dawn L. Sep 2018
Close to the village and sharc, but private backyard area with hot tub, too. Loved that it was also pet friendly.
Siegmar P. Apr 2018
We had great family time in this cabin, and the little ones LOVED the train right behind the property!
Tom S. Jan 2018
The train track is way close and the train goes very fast and is noisy at all hours of the day
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest did not enjoy the train. Some of our guests enjoy the novelty of it, but we understand not everyone will.

I had read recent reviews prior to arriving. This is the fifth home we have rented in Sunriver. I found none of the previously described issues when we arrived. The house was clean. The beds were comfortable. The furniture was in good condition. The floors and counters were clean. The kitchen was reasonably well supplied. The trains did not bother us, but you do notice them. The hot tub and deck were in good condition. For the price and the location, I would recommend this place to friends and family.
Joanna R. Nov 2017
Dirty!! Train track is right behind it and will go off at 5 am and more times. It will shake the house. The appliances are very old. Oven door doesn't stay open. I burned myself trying to get stuff out. The dishwasher doesn't clean stuff. The cupboards were gross. Spiders beware! The pots and pans are old (and were also dirty) and the kitchen was far from equipped. The furniture is so old they felt dirty to sit on. A hanging lamp in the kitchen almost fell on my daughters head when it unraveled. The heater when turned on smelled gross we left it off. Yes this was an inexpensive rental and old so you get what you pay for, but updates (at least for safety reasons) are well spent. And no-one should have to feel like they are staying in a dirty place. Sharc is close and with in walking distance which would be the only pro, but if you are renting you can't use the gym. But hey go stay in Black Butte which isn't that bad of a drive from Bend (still takes 20 minutes from Sunriver) and you get all the same privileges as owners and it is NICE!! Quiet, no train tracks, deers, squirrels, multiple pools, gorgeous scenic bike trails, etc. Sisters is quaint and close. Much butter than the Village. We will be going back there and will enjoy the beautiful drive from Sisters to Bend from here on out. Sunriver was not a win for us. Ill do the drive for Bachelor from Sisters to ski. Hoodoo is lovely too and close to Black Butte.
Manager response:
We’re very excited to report the home has gone through some large scale renovations. The kitchen has been upgraded, including new appliances, cabinets & counters with new lighting & backsplash. All the living and dining room furniture have been replaced, along with new flooring & paint. The outside of the home has been painted and a new deck installed. We’re hoping our prior guests will return to find a beautiful and improved level of comfort. Thank you.
Sarah J. Aug 2017
This house was amazing! Our family of six had plenty of room to relax. It's located very close to the village center and SHARC and having the passes included redefined our trip! We brought bikes and were able to use the two bikes they provided for my parents. It was a great stay. We highly recommend!
Karen F. Jul 2017
Time spent here was fun and very enjoyable, we were surprised by the train but got used to it. The convenience of being close to everything was great!
Melinda C. Jul 2017
We stayed for 3 nights and with all of the fees you pay for this and that it ended up costing around $1400.00. You would think the owner would use some of that money to spruce the place up a bit. The surrounding area is beautiful. Loved the walking/biking trails and shopping area. The SHARC passes are a nice bonus, although we didn't use ours. Close to Bend. The house was really dated and it did take away from our experience. We are generally very easy to please, but were disappointed. The floors/carpets were dirty. Stains on the floors. Musty furniture, sagging beds. Oh, and the train! The railroad tracks are right behind you and run all day and night. Woke me up an average of 3 times per night, with blaring horns. Unfortunately, we would not stay here again.
Manager response:
We understand their frustration with the close proximity of the train tracks. Our apologies for not being able to control this situation. The home has been renovated both inside & out, including new appliances, furniture, paint and a deck. Thank you.
Kelly O. Jul 2017
Dirty, floors and furniture, linoleum peeling up, kitchen poorly stocked, deck rotting and needs to be replaced, hot tub dirty, picnic table rotted and needs to be replaced. Would never rent this house again.

Our group of 6 had a great time and it was perfect for our stay. We had a great time at the SHARC even though we were the oldest people there without kids. It was easy to get to and from Bend - be prepared it's a 20 minute drive. The train freaked us out the first night but eventually we got used to it.
Todd J. Jun 2017
There were some carpenter ants and spiders in the house. A complete bug bomb or treatment of the house is needed.
Manager response:
We used a bug bomb shortly after this guest's departure. Thanks!
Asa M. Jun 2017
Absolutely loved this house. Perfect, clean, cozy & great location. We will be back!
John H. Jun 2017
Location within 30 feet of railroad tracks that passed by 3 times throughout the night was a problem and refer without ice dispenser a bit outdated
James B. Jun 2017
This location is spacious, clean and in a very nice spot. I would stay here again, and I am a bit picky.
Carol R. Feb 2017
What we did like. The beds were in good shape. The train was not a big deal. The wood stove works great at heating up the house.
Hannah C. Jan 2017
Great house! It was clean and had everything we needed. Train was definitely not an issue.
Derrick N. Dec 2016
We really like the train coming by. Everyone liked using the hot tub and there is plenty of room for everyone in a small place.
Tom & Bev C. Sep 2016
We enjoyed our stay
Ken B. Sep 2016
This rental was one of the most inexpensive in the area and within a mile of the pool and resort shop area. Perfect for about 6 people.
Alan G. Aug 2016
We have rented this cabin 3 or 4 times and continue to think it is just about the best value in Sunriver. It is super close to the SHARC pool and recreation area and comes with 8 passes, which is at the top of the children's list. It is dog friendly, which is at the top of the dogs list. Has a decent hot tub and three rooms which is at the top of the adult's list. Like some of the older Sunriver properties it has some quirks, slightly dated, train goes by about three times a day. But with those things in mind you still would be hard pressed to find a better value in Sunriver. Last year we left a puzzle signed by our family and were delighted to see that others had left notes on the box of the puzzle. We left a new one this year, so be sure enjoy the puzzle and sign the box!
Ann O. Aug 2016
The Sharc passes are a huge asset. The location (even though by the railroad tracks) is good! The house is pretty worn but what would you expect with a rental...if you had lots of nice fancy stuff it would be hard to rent it out. It was very comfortable for us and our grandkids. Plenty of room.
Denise & Walt W. Jul 2016
We enjoyed our stay in Sunriver greatly. The house was conveniently located near the shops, the water park, and the bike path. The property management was friendly and accommodating. We loved having our big chocolate lab on vacation with us. The hot tub was enjoyable, however the train was not. The house lacked some cleanliness and needs some updating -(as always you get what you pay for).
Kayli D. Jun 2016
Great stay at a reasonable price!!!
Anders & Brandi B. May 2016
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would consider renting this house again. Cons: House was dusty, mattresses were a bit uncomfortable, and the bedrooms could use some fresh comforters. There were also a few too many giant ants for my liking. Pros: Spacious, bunk beds, hot tub, bikes, reasonable price, and all major surfaces were very clean. We could walk or bike to village, SHARC, and Fort Rock Park. House is right next to the train track, and several trains barreled through at night, thus making it difficult to sleep with windows open. Didn't bother our kids, though.
Tracey S. Mar 2016
We have stayed here before and were very pleased with the property, however due to the lack of cleanliness in the bathroom and the huge pee stain we found we were sleeping on I doubt we will stay there again. For $99/night I expect at least cleanliness. This is the first time in about 3 years of staying at a Vacasa house that we were disappointed. You can't tell me that the cleaning staff does not see how gross that pee stain was and the fact that they just put a sheet over it and let the house be rented out again is disgusting. Will not be staying there again unless there's a new mattress. Not too much to ask for $99/night.
Manager response:
We are disappointed to see that you did not enjoy your visit this time. The Property Manager will work with housekeeping and will discuss the mattress with the owner.
Patrick H. Mar 2016
We really enjoyed the location and overall aesthetic of the house. My girlfriend didn't particularly like the trains coming by at night, but I wasn't bothered by it. The hot tub was also nice to relax in on cold, snowy nights.

I would have liked to have more cutting boards and sharper knives, but I know that's pretty common for vacation rentals like this one. It would also been nice to have some dry firewood - the stack outside is improperly covered so all the wood is soaked (though it seems this is also common for other Sunriver cabins). My last gripe is that the long couch in the main room has one side that is broken so it slants a little. I was still able to take a nice nap on it, though, so I can't complain too much.

All in all, we had a great time. Thanks!
Manager response:
We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback; the Property Manager will look into replacing/providing the kitchen supplies and ready firewood.

Vacasa is an easy, friendly and efficient vacation property rental agency.

A great house, great area
Steve S. Oct 2015
Good for the budget conscious. Property does back up to railroad tracks, but not many trains pass (and no whistles). Could use a few basics like iron & ironing board; Sunriver is also a conference site, and that's why I was in town.
Danielle W. Sep 2015
Everything about this weekend getaway was perfect. The reservation process was incredibly easy. From the moment we walked in the door we felt "at home" yet still on vacation. It was clean, comfortable, and had all the luxuries of home. The hot tub was a treat to wake up to and also finish our day in. Our next trip to Sunriver MUST be spent in this cabin again. THANK YOU!
Brady H. Aug 2015
We loved the location of this house; it is very close to the SHARC and the Village. Let's discuss the trains as I've seen a lot of people already have. If you are not a deep sleeper, those things are loud and sometimes shake the house. Our kids slept through all of it but the adults did not. The hot tub was a great feature too and actually sitting it in and watching the trains go by was kind of fun. This house was perfect for our family!
Edward H. Jul 2015
The house was perfect for our family, 2 adults, 4 kids, and sonny our small dog. House was clean and comfortable and close to village and the Shark water park. If you're looking for a place where you can just relax, barbecue, and enjoy time with you're family, this house is a good choice.
Connie W. Jun 2015
Stayed here with kids and older grandkids. Worked great for us. As for the train, grandpa loved it but it flies by really fast so watch the kiddos and dogs. Kids were able to easily bikes to SHARC and we all used the bike paths a lot! The SHARC passes were a big draw for our family. Property needs some updating but for our needs, we were pleased and would do it again. (Bring your own frying pans)
Stephanie L. Apr 2015
We were happy with this property! It is close to train tracks and trains ran through late at night and the bbq did not work well but other than that it was clean and peaceful! It was worth the money! It was off season so we did not use the Shark passes but we want to plan another trip in the summer at this location. It was only 15 min drive to Bend which was also a huge plus!
Travis L. Mar 2015
My wife and I recently stayed in this property. Other than the train tracks that feel as though they ran through the back yard making for very loud trains passing through the property, sometimes all hours of the night, we had no other complaints.

The house was clean and well prepared for our arrival. It was well furnished with all the basic living and cooking items to make it seem homely ans comfortable. There are a ton of things to do in and around Sun River and we will be back soon!
Manager response:
Thank you for this review. The train tracks are definitely a nuisance, and I am glad that you enjoyed the home with it's furnishings and cleanliness. Thank you for choosing Vacasa.
Mary L. Jul 2014
The house was clean and roomier than expected, however it was also closer to the train tracks than expected and yes, they do run at night. Other than the train, the location was close to the village and sharc, and it is right on the Pac Crest course. There are areas of Sunriver that will be more quiet and away from traffic noises.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you found the home to be more spacious than expected. We appreciate you mentioning the train. Most guests do enjoy the train but light sleepers might want to cautious.
Richard G. Jun 2014
Overall, a very nice, cozy place. Had a slight issue with hot tub, but one quick call and was handled. Enjoyed our stay.
Manager response:
Thank you for this review. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the SHARC passes that were included with your reservation. The aquatic center is a great place for families to enjoy all that Sunriver has to offer. We look forward to seeing you again!

My all adult family of 8 people really liked 5 Butternut. We were looking for a cheaper rental and a great value. We got just that. The hot tub was on the fritz for a little bit but luckily the handy fellows in our party fixed it right up. The most negative comment I heard most about the house was the comfort of a few of the beds. The living room is a little small for 8 people but we made it work by pulling the dining room table chairs over for cards and fun. The house is indeed a little closer to the railroad tracks than it looks on the map. We heard it several times, especially during the night. But we are a pretty easy going group so it didn't bug us too much. Overall this was a great value for the price, especially compared to some of the pricier places in Sunriver. I would stay here again as long as we brought a few extra mattress pads for some of the beds and our own frying pans :) Thanks 5 Butternut!
Melissa B. Nov 2012
This was our families first stay at Sunriver and we really enjoyed it. The home was nice and had plenty of room and sleeping for the six of us. It was with in easy walking distance to the SHARC as well as the village shops. It is also really close to the railroad tracks, which was a little loud the first night but we didnt notice much after that and the kids had fun counting how many cars each one had. over all we had a great first time here and would definitely stay here again.
cassandra s. Jul 2012
My husband and I stayed here with my parents (grandma and granpa) and our 1 and 1/2 year old son and our black lab. We had a great time! The property is very close to SHARQ and the sunriver mall. We were nervous about the train... it never woke us and our son loved watching it go by... but we did not let him play outside as there is no fence between the yard and tracks. This ended up being a non issue as he had plenty of oppertunity to play, swim, walk, and bike every day. This was a plain little vacation house but we had a very relaxing and fun trip!
Annie S. May 2012
This home isn't super fancy but has a fabulous location to the new SHARC, easy to walk to and from and we really enjoyed the train out back as entertainment for our kids, plus the hot tub is great since it isn't hidden behind a fence.
