Vandevert Ranch is a low-density gated community sixteen miles south of Bend, Oregon.   Twenty ranch owners share 350 acres of common land on both banks of the Little Deschutes River and hold about 50 acres in individual lots. The Vandevert family founded the ranch in 1892, raising children and cattle here for a hundred years.

The seventeen custom homes built on the ranch have been designed by leading log home architects of the West and Northwest.

This web site is for the information and enjoyment of the owners, their guests, and all those associated with the ranch.  The ranch is rich in its history, its environment, and in opportunities for recreation.  The web site also provides information for buyers and builders.

At right, the new buck-and-rail fence on the Homestead Road, built by Bryan and Austin to last twenty years. In the unusual configuration of the ponderosa on the left, the limbs at about ten feet high on the trunk have grown down to the ground and formed a room under the branches. In 1922 Claude Vandevert Senior proposed to Pearl Marie Catlow under this tree. They brought up four children on the ranch.
