About this listing
We're not just hosts, we're SUPER hosts because we love what we do. We're thrilled to open our home to all travelers coming to Bend. Our town home is centrally located in a safe and trendy neighborhood of NW Bend. A beautiful 1 mile walk through Drake Park will take you into downtown. We are also very close to North West Crossing, the Old Mill, many great restaurants and of course breweries. Newport Market, a fun & eccentric grocery store is a quarter mile from us.
The guest room is the sunniest in the whole house. It's simple and spacious with a rocking a chair and free library. The double size futon is comfortable for 2 people. Our guests continually tell us how comfortable the mattress is so we have taken their word for it. You have a private bathroom just outside your room. We have a 2nd bedroom for extra guests or an air mattress that we're happy to set up in the same room. We have coffee and tea ready every morning by 6:30 a.m. You're also welcome to use the kitchen to make your own meals.
Interaction with guests
Mark and I are both working full-time, but we do our best to meet and greet our guests. We are very social and thoroughly enjoy meeting new people. Bend has so much to offer and it is our pleasure to share insider knowledge with our guests. There are lots of brochures under the table in your room, but we're happy to answer any questions you may have about where to go and what to see. We are outdoor enthusiasts, hence the reason we live in Bend, and love talking, bikes, skis, hikes or our east coast roots. You're always welcome to join us any time.
We are located in the best of the west! Many wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, breweries a small grocery store are an easy 5-minute walk from us. Mt. Bachelor is just 20 miles from door to door! Our neighborhood is centrally located to all the great things that Bend has to offer. Downtown is an easy walk down residential streets and through Drake Park, but is also easily accessible by car. The Old Mill is about 2 miles and is perfect for access to the River Trail or to try out the city's new white water park. Although we are close to a busy street, the apartment is very quiet. The neighborhood is also very safe.
Our primary mode of transportation is biking. We put more miles on our bikes than we do on our cars. Walking is also a great way to get around town and to take in the beautiful sights and wondrous smells of Bend. We do have 2 townie bikes that we are happy to loan to guests. Bend and the surrounding areas are also quick and easy for driving.
Other things to note

We ask that visitors take off their shoes upon entering the house as well clean up after themselves during their stay and upon their departure.
