My wife & I are hoping to take our 1st trip to the Pacific northwest this year. We found a really nice looking log house rental in Sisters, at a nice price. It's available in either late August or late Sept. Which time do you think would be better? I realize crowds(?) would be less in Sept.,but what about weather? Will be doing lots of day hikes, fishing, & just touring the surrounding area. Is Sisters a good base for us? We don't mind having to drive a bit to get to different areas, as I assume the scenery would make it interesting. Don't need much nightlife as we're in our early 50's, but would probably take a couple trips into Bend for dinner. Any & all opinions or suggestions are appreciated!
