About Tracy Jones

We love to travel as a family and Bend has always held a special place in our hearts, so much so that we moved here in 2011. Bend is an outdoor playground like no other and the friendly people who call Bend home create a welcoming environment like no other.

We love to back pack, Mt. Bike, hike and enjoy exploring all that Central Oregon has to offer.

Tracy Jones purchased this house in 2013

Why Tracy Jones chose Bend

We designed and built this property along with the adjacent matching home specifically as vacation rentals. We looked for the most desirable location in Bend and set to work creating a pair of homes that would provide a wonderful Five Star vacation experience.

What makes this house unique

Located a short walk from downtown and between the two most popular corridors of eateries and shops on the West Side of town. This unique location provides the best of both worlds. You will be right in the heart of Bend making it easy to enjoy all that the area has to offer, yet just far enough off the beaten path to make it feel like a quiet retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been coming to Bend for many years and plan on retiring here. This is the most well appointed house we've rented. We made a Thanksgiving feast and had everything available to make it. We enjoyed the kitchen! The house is beautiful and very comfortable. I loved the comfortable beds and nice linens. We also liked the location so we could walk downtown to enjoy Mirror Pond, shops, and restaurants. We will definitely come back to this beautiful home. The owners have thought of every detail. The thoughtful details that have gone into the amenities of The Milky Way are 7 Star! We will recommend this place to all of our friends, family and neighbors.

Thank you so much!

Best Rental House We've Had

  • 5 of 5

This house is dialed in. In fact, I think it has MORE comforts than our own home! Great for groups. Excellent location. We'll for sure be back to stay again.

Convienient location, well stocked, comfy...

  • 5 of 5

My whole family stayed here over a year ago and we are still reflecting on how enjoyable our stay at The Milky Way was! The house is comfortable and located close to many of our favorite spots: the food trucks (The Lot), Spork, Newport Market, parks, and the river. We used the provided bikes to ride down to the Old Mill. The house is VERY well stocked with supplies for the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry. Parking at the house is limited, but there is ample street parking over by the nearby school. We made lots of fun memories during our stay and would love to stay here again!

Best vacation rental experience yet! House had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This house was used for 4 different families to stay in. The entire experience was beyond my expectations. Prior to the stay the owner was wonderful about communication & answered all of my questions. Check in instructions were very easy & the house was easy to find. Once we arrived we found the house so fully furnished it had everything we needed. From all kitchen utensils, kitchenware to sentimental touches such as a provided dog bed, dog bowls & some toys for my toddler. The house is absolutely beautiful inside & out which made us feel even more relaxed. All of the beds were incredibly comfortable which gave everyone a very much needed good sleep. I am an extremely clean person so walking into a home that is spotless was wonderful. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone stay at this home. This is a MUCH better option than renting a hotel in the area as we simply we were able to visit with family over meals, watch our children play while we had coffee and walk to the local restaurants. We fully plan on renting from the owners again if we ever need any sized home in the bend area. Absolutely the best rental experience that we have had so far!

Beautiful house in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Bend. The house is beautiful and well furnished. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you might need. There is plenty of seating for dining. The basement made for an awesome hang out spot and game room. The location is perfect and makes it easy to walk or bike anywhere in town. We hope to return again in the future!

The Milky Way is stellar!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many fine rental homes and this one is stellar! The kitchen is SO well appointed, the layout of the house and its amenities are perfect. You can walk to town. Lounge in the deck level hot tub. Enjoy air conditioned comfort. It is THE perfect family compound house. We would return in a minute. Oregon and Bend in particular are wonderful places to visit especially if you like the great outdoors.
