Great Bend house!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience at this lovely home. We had everything we needed. The only addition I would make is converting the claw foot tub to a shower. Vanessa is super on top of everything. Walking through Drake park to downtown was priceless.

Great location...

  • 3 of 5

We were visiting Bend with our two and three year old sons, so the location was fantastic for us. There are two great parks within 2-3 blocks from the house, and easy walking distance to downtown, restaurants, coffee, and Newport Market. We especially loved going to McKay Park with the little beach for the boys to play in the water, Harmon Park, Bend Brewing Co's lawn and taco cart, and of course Spork! We walked and biked just about everywhere!

I would not choose to stay at this house again, though. It isn't bad, it's just tiny, and all the furnishing, dishes, towels, etc, feel cheep, and it still needs some updating/maintenance. I'm not sure it is in line with what we paid to stay here. Also, there is a nice side lawn, but no furniture to utilize in that space. It's also on a busy road, so it's pretty loud.

Owner's Response: Liza, I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the prime location of our home. Our century old mill town home was completely remodeled and all systems updated and modern (see all other reviews) so I'm surprised by your comments to the contrary. Other reviewers have consistently mentioned how well furnished the home is but we can't please everyone. Our listing describes keeping with the original character and charm of the home so I'm a bit surprised our home was chosen when a sprawling tract with expansive footprint might have been more appropriate. You may have also missed the portable table, eight patio chairs and four andirondak chairs that are stored on our side lawn and could've been moved a few feet to the green lawn you liked. We wish you the best of luck in your travels and in finding a future rental in line with your expectations of being central to downtown but devoid of traffic.

Great location, lovely space

  • 5 of 5

The owners really made our Christmas stay extra comfortable and cozy--they changed out one of the beds in the second room to a queen which was perfect for our 6 ft tall teenager, added tea lights to the fireplace area, and kindly allowed us to check-in early when we arrived to snowy Bend a bit ahead of schedule. The home is all newly remodeled and laid out well. While it is on a busy street, it is surprisingly quiet inside. It's actually in a perfect location--we walked to Newport Market, Drake Park and downtown. We have stayed in many rentals in Bend and this is top of the list. We will definitely go back. Thank you!!

Adorable and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This home was adorable, and even cuter than the pictures in person. It was the perfect size for our family of 4. It was very clean and in a great location, just a short walk to downtown Bend. My only small complaint would be that the portable AC unit did not cool very well, and we were a little hot while sleeping. From what I understand, it was unusually hot the week we were in Bend, so it's probably fine for majority of the year. I still give this home 5 stars!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review! We appreciate your letting us know that the livingroom air conditioner did not keep the home at your preferred level of cool during the heat wave. We have installed separate window air conditioning units in each of the bedrooms and added insulating curtains. Your comfort is important to us, so please give us the opportunity to help by letting us know during your stay. Thanks again for the wonderful review and we're so happy to hear that you enjoyed yourselves!

Overall this property was great

  • 5 of 5

This house was very clean. We loved the location - great restaurants close by; old town and the parks all within walking distance. I would recommend this to others. The only thing to note is that the twin beds were small - great for little kids. A bit small for my teens and father. Otherwise -the house was equipped with everything we needed! We'd stay again... we love Bend!

Owner's Response: Update as of 12/2016: Thanks to guest feedback, we have replaced one of the twin beds in the second bedroom with a queen. That room now has a queen and twin bed with custom, open closet space. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Thanks so much for your 5* review! We're so glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves. Thanks also for letting us know about that twin beds are not your preferred bed size. We will use this information to evaluate whether we will change the bed configuration from two standard twin beds to one larger size mattress. Thanks again for choosing our home. We hope you will visit again soon!

Lovely stay in a beautiful and very clean home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful little getaway for our small family of three staying in this beautifully remodeled home in our favorite neighborhood near Drake Park. The house was immaculately clean (one of my very top priorities when renting a home away from home) and within walking distance to some of our very favorite places. Reluctantly, I highly recommend (only because I don't want it to get so popular that it's booked up on our next trip out there) this home and it will now be our first choice of places to stay when we visit Bend.

The only things I would consider are: even though there is one portable air conditioner and many fans this little house really heats up during the day. I highly recommend the owners considering an a/c unit for each bedroom or possibly central air at some point. We were in the main bedroom and it was so hot in there my husband had to sleep on the pull out bed in the living room every night and I tossed and turned trying to get comfortable with just the fans on me. My son slept in the room with the two twin beds and he complained of being too hot to sleep so on the second night I set up the extra fan from the closet in my room in with him.

The other issue was with the twin son is the size of any average 14 year old but these beds are very tiny and made getting a good and comfortable nights sleep kind of rough for him. (That on top of being way too warm made sleeping in that room not very desirable for a teenager or adult. ) I read another review where they had mentioned the same thing.

I'm only offering up these as things for the owners and renters to consider when you are looking for something to meet your needs. Overall, we loved this little house and completely enjoyed our stay in Bend and hope to return again next summer.

Make sure to visit :

Drake Park (summer concerts in the Park if you're lucky!)


Bonta !!!

Rockin Dave's Bagel Bistro

Newport Market

Pilot Butte for an amazing sunset (Sadly, most of the people up there might be playing Pokemon Go.)

Smith Rock

Sparks Lake

Elk Lake and rent a kayak

A lovely evening walk around the neighborhood, it's beautiful!

Thank you for helping make our trip so lovely.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5-star review! We're so glad you agree with the 77 other 5-star reviews we've received on another hosting platform. Lovely to read that you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate the outstanding recommendation. In the check-in instructions, we tried to express that if a guest needs anything at all, to please let us know as we would've made the effort to accommodate your requests. We're saddened to hear that you were too hot and tossing/turning during those nights. Your comfort is very important to us. If we had been informed, we would've immediately set up the spare 12,500 BTU air conditioner as well (as mentioned in the check-in instructions). Please give us the opportunity to ameliorate any hiccups during your stay. We look forward to having you back again soon!
