About Karen

We are a semi-retired couple with 4 grown kids. Bought this home after visiting our daughter who married and moved to Bend. Fell in love with the area, especially because we are so close to town, yet have a peaceful, quiet retreat away from our sometimes crazy life! My husband coaches football and I'm a paralegal. Love sports and travel.

Now our entire family visits often with the grandkids whenever we can.

Karen purchased this house in 2008

Why Karen chose Central Oregon

We fell in love with all the fun activities to do in the summer and the snow in the winter. All the best shopping and restaurants within 15 minutes from our little country getaway. We keep discovering new fun places every time we go up there for hiking, sightseeing, fishing, kayaking...the list goes on!

What makes this house unique

Nothing beats sitting on our balcony overlooking the woods and the view of Mt. Bachelor. Deer and wildlife abound. So peaceful.....

Awesome spot, Awesome house

  • 5 of 5

This home met our needs and went beyond expectations compared to other vacation rentals we have experienced. The facilities were well cared for, homey, and stocked with all the kitchen tools one would expect -- or hope for. I mention this because we cook and the kitchen supplies in rentals are usually an afterthought, but not here. We had friends visit for dinner (who were staying at a nearby resort) and they will likely stay here in the future. We'll certainly be back. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Nick Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review. We try very hard to make our house homey. I also love to cook, so I know the importance of having a well stocked kitchen. That's what makes home rentals the best experience! Come back soon! Karen

Very nice place, quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here for a winter weekend and really enjoyed it. The house is extremely comfortable, warm and welcoming. The neighborhood is quiet, there's a beautiful view from the living room and nice decks to relax on. I would definitely recommend this house, the hosts are responsive and accomodating and the area is outstanding.

What a cozy peaceful place! Being able to sit out on the deck and enjoying the sunsets was wonderful. Beds are very comfortable and the kitchen has anything and everything you will need to have a great vacation. Most house rentals have very little supplies if any at all but the owners have made sure there is shampoo, laundry detergent, paper towels, condiments and just about all you need. Wow! Impressive! The property is close to town but is nestled in the woods which makes sleeping in peace and listening to crickets a huge plus! One last thing... The owners have the best customer service I've experienced in all the years of renting homes. When you come to Bend stay will love it!

Owner's Response: Tammie Was so glad you were able to reschedule your trip here. I, too, rent homes and take note of amenities that make you feel at home and try hard to mimic that. Hope you can make back again!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely beautiful. The view from the balcony was breathtaking and we loved all of the little extras--the toys and books and pellet stove. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The owners were very responsive to our minor issues and solved them both immediately. We loved horseback riding, hot air ballooning, and floating down the Deschutes River. We would definitely recommend this property to others. :)

Beautiful location, excellent accomodations.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to attend Ukulele University 5 which was located just down the hill, so the location was perfect and the house was very nice, very clean and comfortable. We could see Mt. Bachelor from the deck.

I was concerned about the sizable damage deposit, but we took good care of the house, left it in good shape and the deposit was returned.

Owner's Response: Glad the Ukelele ladies had a great time! We try hard to make everyone's stay comfortable. Security deposit is about average for most, but a necessity as I had a group do damage to the house that was actually more than than the deposit allowed for repairs. Unfortunate that it has to be a requirement due to the actions of a small percentage. Otherwise, I always refund deposit in a timely manner. Come back again!

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

We picked this place for extended family to stay for a Wedding. It was great, loved the view and it worked perfectly for us. Easy access to Hwy 97. Well furnished with everything needed. The only downside was the split level stairs were covered with rugs that were not hooked down well and seemed a little dangerous for the elder parents. Would definitely recommend or rent again ourselves if needed.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the home. Unfortunately, due to high volume of traffic on the stairs the rugs have come loose. We plan on replacing all of the flooring some time next year so it should no longer be a problem. Come back again#
