About the property

A stylish property 22 minutes from Mt Bachelor yet 3 1/2 blocks to downtown

This is a recently remodeled 4 bedroom, 3 bath house in the historical district of Bend.

Leave your car behind and walk to all the cool places and take the city shuttle to Mt. Bachelor. Part of the trendy 'westside' of Bend, but much closer to everything than most.

Included sleeping for 12 on seven beds - 1 king, 2 queens, a full/twin bunk bed, comfy convertible sofa that becomes double bed and an ottoman that converts to a twin bed. Full kitchen with high end appliances, gas fireplace in living room, 50' LED TV plus 32' TVs in bedroom, high-speed internet, two hot tubs outside.

Unit can be rented as a whole - or back 'studio' can lock-off from rest of property and has small kitchenette, private patio with hot-tub, bistro table, queen bed and convertible double sofa-bed.

Main house has additional three bedrooms, private yard with firepit and hot-tub, BBQ, air conditioning, etc.

Best location, best quality, best value in downtown Bend.

Nice overall, close to town and the mountain, located next to busy street hot tub not private

  • 3 of 5

Stayed for 9 days with a group of 6 guys on a snowboarding trip, house was clean and had enough room and bedding for all of us. Located right on a busy street from the hot tub you could wave at traffic, water in tub was never changed or cleaned, tv had issues, gas fireplace made too much noise couldn't use it, no sharp knives had to buy some, clothes dryer issues too. Steve and Lori were very nice and the tv issue was fixed after a call to Steve, overall the place was satisfactory but for the price there are nicer options out there

Owner's Response: This is a surprising review. When the guys checked in, we were there to greet them and they were all raving about how nice the place was, etc. Hot Tubs are drained and cleaned between guests, but not during their stay unless the guests request it. Never complained. Also, they never called about any problems with Dryer or Fireplace. Fireplace is standard with gas logs, separate fan control that I guess they didn't know how to use but never called about it. No one has complained since. Regarding privacy of hot tubs, It has two hot tubs, in two separate back yards. Both tubs/yards are surrounded by six-ft. high fences and cypress trees that are over 8 feet tall. One backyard is about 20 feet from a street that is busy during the day, almost empty at night. Never had any complaints like this before. Then again, they were enjoying the 420 and maybe a bit paranoid.

Great location, responsive owners, a few minor issues

  • 4 of 5

The house was in a great location, although while we were staying, there was a lot of construction. Hopefully that will be finished soon. We were able to walk to local breweries and the amphitheater was close as well, which was perfect for Bend Brewfest. The house was very clean and well taken care of, and the owners were so helpful with any issues that arose while we were staying at the house. The A/C is either really weak, or wasn't working. Steve called and tried to walk us through it, but we weren't able to get it figured out. Luckily the days cooled down for the remainder of our stay so it ended up being a non-issue. Also, we were never able to get the wifi working. It looked like someone had tried to change some settings, or the way the router was hooked up, so the standard plug and unplug, or reset, did not work either. There was some confusion with the garbage and recycling, but Lori was able to call me and clear it up. It sounded like it was a one time issue because the cleaning company had forgotten to move the bins back to their original location. One more thing I would note is that if you are planning on having anyone use the extra sleeping areas that are not beds, to bring your own sheets as there weren't any for the ottoman or futon. All in all we really enjoyed the layout of the house and the location, and the owners were extremely responsive when we reached out. I would highly recommend this to large groups, families with kids/teenagers, or just a couple looking for more space. We had people staying in the main house as well as the studio, and both were set up very well for guests.

Owner's Response: Thanks Courtney. Not really sure the issue with the WiFi, guest before and after didn't have any issues and we didn't change anything. Air conditioning was also checked and came back without issues, but I will say the standard program for the thermostat had the cooling temp set at 85 degrees, so we set it down to 76 degrees. As an owner, it is frustrating when we come in and see temp set at 64 degrees (which happens a lot) and guests left early in the morning.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautifully done and in a fantastic location! Our only wish was that there was more outdoor space for the kids to hang out and for everyone to enjoy some dinners outdoors.

Great Place!

  • 4 of 5

We had 2 families here w/ 3 kids and 2 dogs and the place was a great fit. The owners have NOT skimped on this place; all the amenities are high end and the furniture and beds are really nice. Beautiful build on this place, including striking 5" hardwood. Hottubs don't hurt either!! The location here can't be beat...especially since it's so close to Crux:) A walk downtown takes about 7 mins. The area this is in is also really nice, everything is very friendly and safe feeling and walks w/ the kids were great. A wonderful spot for families or dog owners!!
