About This Listing
Old Bend meets new Bend in this spacious, newly constructed second level studio apartment in a century old neighborhood in NW Bend. The beautifully appointed room has private access and includes a well accessorized kitchen, comfortable furnishings, a queen size bed, and bathroom.
You will be welcomed with a special gift from a local vendor upon your arrival to compliment what we know will be a memorable stay in Bend. As comfortable as we know you’ll be in the studio, you must get out and experience all Bend has to offer. Hiking, fishing, golf, lakes, rivers, Mt. Bachelor, beautiful sightseeing and many more activities are within a 30 minute drive.
We think you’ll enjoy your stay without getting in your car at all. Within 3 blocks you can visit one of the favorite local brew pubs, the best pizza place in town, our favorite bakery and several other eateries. Beautiful downtown Bend is a 15 minute walk, or, a short bike ride on bikes we provide. Experience locally owned restaurants, bars, breweries, unique boutique shops, coffee roasters, bakeries, Drake park and more.
This century old neighborhood which was home to many mill workers in the past has become a rejuvenated and vibrant area for a new generation. Many of the old houses continue to be remodeled and, at the same time, retain the old neighborhood feel.
Interaction with Guests
Our interaction with guests is very limited. Even though we share the same property, the studio is separated and has private access. Because the studio is located above our garage, we occasionally meet guests by chance when we're leaving or returning at the same time.

We were in town to hang out with friends and enjoy some biking. Pam and Al are wonderful hosts and their place is absolutely perfect for an active couple looking to spend time in Bend. The location is ideal and close to restaurants, breweries, and the best market in town. It was very comfortable, clean, quiet, private, and spacious. We would highly recommend staying here the next time you need a cozy place to stay in Bend.
The apartment was wonderful! We felt like we truly had a home while away from home. The location was fantastic - so close to everything we wanted to get to. Al and Pam go above and beyond to make people feel welcome - from the fresh coffee beans to the beer glasses in the freezer. And the growler! Thank you so much for the growler!
We would stay at their place again in a heartbeat the next time we're in Bend. Thank you Al and Pam! You've got a hidden gem!
What a great spot! Easy to find, great location, and an absolutely beautifully appointed studio apartment. This place made a great base of operations for jumping off on Bend-area adventures.
So many great things to say about this place - the off-street parking was excellent, the chilled beer glasses in the freezer came in real handy and the short walk to 10 Barrel Brewing was fabulous! Very clean and efficient apartment and the check-in and check-out processes were easy peasy. I'd stay here again, no problem!
We had such a great time at Pam and Al's Couples Getaway! The studio was spacious and bright with a charming fireplace, located minutes from everything you would want (breweries, downtown, amazing market).
Pam was wonderful and responsive with any questions that we had about the area and the house. The bikes were a treat as well enabling us to get around and make the most of the breweries.
We became engaged this weekend so yes, Couples Getaway was perfect. We look forward to coming back to celebrate next year!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Al and Pam's place for a night. It was a very nice space. I was happy to find just about everything we needed for our stay in the studio apartment. It was a very chill and quiet stay. We were a close walk from several restaurants and the river. I'd say it's the perfect place to stay if you want to relax!
Pam and Al have the perfect place for visiting Bend. The location is within easy walking distance to a great breakfast place (Chows), and it is easy to get on the bikes they provide to ride along the river. The room is spacious with very nice furnishings and with a private entry. The heater is the BEST as it was cold in the mornings, and the fresh espresso coffee beans we ground each morning in our room was appreciated. Pam and Al were very responsive to our emails, and once there, let us have our privacy. We ended our vacation with a wonderful talk with Pam about living in Bend. Thank you both for the gracious accommodation!
About the Host, Al & Pam
We love Bend! It's like being on vacation all year round. As a result, we haven't done much traveling. We still like to experience the different restaurants & breweries here. It seems that Bend has a big event going on almost weekly, which we usually partake. Would like to play more golf, but my summer job as owner of a sustainable lawn maintenance service keeps me pretty busy. In the winter I'm at Mt. Bachelor, mostly working, but do hit the slopes on occasion. Pam is the Executive Director for CASA of Central Oregon. This is a non-profit that advocates for children in foster care. Pam is passionate about children and youth. Before she started working for CASA she was an educator. In her spare time she enjoys running and golf. Her absolute favorite past time is reading cookbooks and entertaining family and friends.
