About this listing
Cozy, private room with extra loft... Walk to Backporch Coffee Roasters, Spork, and Newport Market. Minutes to MTB trails, trail running, endless road riding, and 35 minutes to Mt. Bachelor. Play, eat, relax and make yourself at home.
Located on the Westside of Bend, this lovely private room offers loads of natural light with a very clean, open-air layout. Along with your own private space (plus loft) and full bathroom, enjoy a spacious kitchen and living room, and a beautifully zero-scaped yard full of vegetables and flowers.
A perfect space for 1-3 people, this cozy room (in our 12-year-old, 1200 square foot home) is walking distance from Newport Market, Sunnyside Sports, Backporch Coffee Roasters, Nancy P's Bakery, Spork, Cuppa Yo, Chow, Kebaba, and Kampai. Other Westside Bend breweries and eateries are just a few steps (or pedals) further. Everything is within five minutes of our doorstep, with trails (Shevlin and Phil's trailhead) only 15 minutes by bike, and 1st Street Rapids two minutes by bike.
Expect peace, quiet, and relaxation while enjoying breakfast among the flowers and greenery of our front yard, or an evening meal around the fire pit. As well, Alley access with parking out back is safe and secure.
Guests will have access to the garage (for storing bikes, kayaks, skis, etc.), downstairs bedroom and bathroom, the kitchen and living room, as well as the sunny outside patio and garden. Basically everything except a tiny wooden shed!
Interaction with Guests
Minimal. It's up to the guest, really. If you want interaction, we can. If you don't, we can leave you be. Simple as that.
Please... no parties, no pets, no smoking. Be respectful and enjoy.
Laura was very welcoming to her cute home. Listing was as described, and was very clean and comfortable. House is located within a short walk to different restaurants, shops, and markets. We really loved staying here and will stay here again if we come back to Bend. Thanks for a great first experience with airbnb!
Overall our experience at James and Laura's house was a great one. The private room with a loft was just what we needed for a birthday getaway. The house was very clean with lovely decor and a fun atmosphere. We loved the location being right in the heart of downtown where we could bike everywhere. We would definitely recommend James and Laura's house for the perfect Bend experience!
James and Laura were both great! They were helpful with finding new places and welcoming with their beautiful home. The home is such a perfect place. Conveniently located and a perfect place to relax. I would recommend them/ their house to anyone looking to stay in Bend.
James was a fantastic host! He's easy and fun to talk to and made us feel welcome in his home. He introduced us to his friends and suggested several cool local spots. The house itself is beautiful and comfortable and the wifi is good. Would highly recommend.
Laura and James' place was great. Exactly what we needed for our short stay in Bend. Clean, and although they were gone they let us know logistics in terms of how to get in/lock up. They were very communicative.
Both the neighborhood and home were absolutely beautiful. Walking distance to downtown and breweries. The home itself was very well kept and maintained, and was cozy, which was exactly what I was looking for. James and Laura were welcoming and friendly but not intrusive, and were happy to chat and give ideas for local hikes and running trails. They also made a killer cup of coffee. The towels were soft, too.
James and Laura were outstanding hosts! This was one of the best air bnb experiences we've had. James and Laura were very welcoming and down to earth. We felt very comfortable staying with them. Their house is conveniently located within walking distance to good restaurants and shops as well as the downtown area, which we loved. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and clean! Great option for visiting Bend!
