About the Property

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

The "Paddle House" is a charming Craftsman located in the historic Old Bend area. We chose to buy our vacation home here because of it's central location and unsurpassed walk-ability quotient in all seasons. You can park your car and walk to the "best of the best" restaurants, breweries, bars and shopping Bend has to offer just few short blocks away.

Outdoor fun accessibility is also excellent with the Deschutes River, hiking and biking trails, kayaking and tubing just a short walk away. Mt. Bachelor ski resort is only a 30 minute drive and Bend was named “America’s Best Trail Running Town” by the editors of Outside Magazine.

Other amenities include a gas fireplace, gourmet kitchen, high speed internet / wifi, cable TV, washer/dryer and two full baths with heated tile floors. We kept the original maple hardwood floors in the living room and yes, they still squeak, but they have been beautifully refinished. Each bedroom has a queen size bed with a memory foam topper and there is La-z-boy sleeper sofa in the living room with their top of the line mattress.

Our calendar is always up to date. Please check it for available nights.

Come be our guests and enjoy!

*PLEASE NOTE THAT VRBO / HOMEAWAY CHARGES ALL RENTERS A VARIABLE "SERVICE FEE" WHICH WILL BE INCLUDED WHEN YOU REQUEST A QUOTE.

Here is VRBO / Homeaway's explaination of the service fee...

Overview

The service fee is paid by the traveler when booking through the HomeAway websites. This fee covers the cost of providing 24/7 customer support, enhanced site and mobile features for both owner and travelers, plus expanded marketing efforts to generate more exposure to global audiences. Additionally, when a traveler books and pays through HomeAway, they are eligible for the Book with Confidence Guarantee.

Paying the fee

Travelers pay the service fee by credit card when paying through the secure HomeAway checkout process. The service fee is only charged to the card once the booking has been accepted by the property owner or manager. The service fee is, on average, approximately 6% of the rental amount, excluding refundable deposit or taxes. This fee is lower than other travel websites that charge a similar fee.

Refunding the fee

The owner does not have the ability to discount or waive the service fee amount. The only time the service fee can be refunded is when an owner uses the Cancellation Refund feature from their dashboard and the cancellation is requested within the terms of the owner/manager's cancellation policy. However, if the reservation is not canceled and all payments fully refunded to the traveler, the service fee will not be refunded.


Owner's cancellation policy:

50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.

100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Sharon is a real estate broker and Mike is a general contractor. They currently live in San Diego but find Bend to be the perfect second home. They love their Bend neighbors and think the Old Bend neighborhood is the hands down best for all-season access to everything Bend has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Old Bend, Bend, OR, USA:
We found Bend completely by accident. Our only prior experience with Oregon was visiting Brookings on the coast just north of the CA border and found the stereotype of OR weather to be spot-on. Wet and chilly, even in the summer. Fortunately for us another road trip from Jackson Hole, Wy to Florence, OR took us directly through Bend. We fell in love with the place. It was February and the weather beautiful! Stopping for gas we asked for directions to Mt. Bachelor. The station attendant who was wearing shorts, advised us not to head up to the mountain that day, because there were blizzard conditions. Yeah right, we thought. Bachelor only 20 miles away and it was nice and sunny in Bend. To make a long story longer... the attendant was right. We started our journey and at mile 5, it started to snow. At mile 15 it was snowing REEEAALY hard. By the time we got to the resort parking lot we were in complete white-out conditions and could barely see to park. Well, we had a very a nice lunch in the lodge, and, after a very short discussion, we decided skiing an unfamiliar mountain in whiteout conditions would probably not be wise. We resigned ourselves to return another day. Resuming our trip to Florence, we were delighted to find little Hoodoo ski resort (two lifts) just west of Sisters. After two fun hours of skiing in clear conditions we still made the coast and Florence by 5:00 pm for the rehearsal dinner. Our next trip to Bend was in the summer and that sealed the deal for us. The people, weather, community, dining, and outdoor life are everything we wanted for a second home. So we bought one! THE END... and new beginning :-) Sharon & Mike

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Summertime on the front porch talking to neighbors and passers-by. Walking to downtown restaurants and shops.
