About Peg Davenport

We have built and we manage this working ranch. The hired hands house was built for that express purpose. We now enjoy renting to others that appreciate the outdoors and wide open spaces. A couple of our favorite activities on the ranch are watching wildlife with field glasses, hiking and fishing the back pond and snow shoeing or cross country skiing in the winter.

Peg Davenport purchased this farmhouse in 1990

Why Peg Davenport chose Bend

We choose this property more than 20 years ago. It was one of those special places the minute you turned off the main road and headed down the drive. Each curve brings a new view of the mountains and keeps your guessing as the the ranch reveals itself. This is the largest, single owner property left so close to town.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Each year the hay crop comes in and the extra help had to stay somewhere. Now this special and unique home is available for you to rent. Take advantage of a unique opportunity to stay on a large ranch just a few minutes out of Bend. The topography lends itself to hiking down into a canyon and sitting under the rock formations just watching and listening to the wildlife that lives there. Spot our owl nests high up in the ponderosa. In the fall you will be serenaded by water fowl moving along the flight corridor as they drop onto the back pond for a rest. For all of the activities outdoors you will find the decor of the interior to be surprisingly sophisticated and totally comfortable.

Our charming Hired Hands home offers miles of hiking trails and a pond in the back of the ranch for watching wildlife and fishing if you wish. Bring your field glasses to see the owls, osprey, elk and deer. If you wanted to go bird hunting or fly fishing just say the word. We have several service providers that can arrange it. Additionally, if you want to have a meal catered or delivered we can assist you with that as well. This home is the perfect winter get away for a ski weekend. If you want to take a vacation during the summer we rent by the week and also have a much larger home on the property that lends itself to larger groups for family reunions.
