Wonderful Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

What a way to spend our 39th anniversary. We very much enjoyed this lovely home. Very quiet neighborhood. The house was very neat and clean. The hot tub was a joy after a long day of walking. Sheryl and Bud were a joy to work with.

Lovely Visit

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple shared this house for a weekend in Bend. It was just the right size for the four of us. We very much enjoyed the hot tub and had no issues sharing the good sized bathroom due to the long counter top. We, personally, found the beds to be a bit hard, but everyone has different tastes in this matter. Loved the gas stove and were very relaxed and at home all weekend. It is very close to a Safeway and within a few minutes of several restaurants and Old Mill. Shirley was very helpful and responsive. We would definitely stay here again.

Bend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a trip to Bend to tour the Ale Trail and explore some of the outdoor treasures like Tumalo Falls, Smith Rock State Park, and the High Desert Museum. We were very comfortable in this home. It was clean, comfortable, and close to downtown but in a quiet, peaceful part of the city. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we could need, and the refrigerator/pantry even had some condiments and other might-need-it-once kind of items. The owner was easy to work with and kindly extended the offer of a late check-out to us as the property remained available the next day; the area was so wonderful we wish we could have taken advantage of it. We wouldn't hesitate to return!

My wife and I spent Christmas of 2011 at this home and were very pleased with the property. The home was neat, clean , and very comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and close to good shopping, coffee shops, pubs,etc..

We hosted several dinners and had all necessary cookware,plates,etc. to accomadate 4-6 people. we then could relax in a clean and quiet hottub.

Everything the owner say's it is, and more.
