We have a very sunny and spacious room on the 2nd floor! We are located in NW Bend, close to downtown as well as the Old Mill District and lots of great restaurants. The room includes a semi-private bathroom outside the bedroom.
The room is sunny, spacious and quiet and includes a semi-private bathroom. The futon is a double and is comfortable for one, snug for two.
Interaction with Guests
We are both working, but we do our best to greet and see off our guests. Mark and I are social people and thoroughly enjoy meeting new people, talking about what brings our guests to Bend and giving recommendations for the best beer, the best grub or the best hike!
Our neighborhood is quiet and centrally located. We are an easy and beautiful 1 mile walk to downtown and about 2 miles to the Old Mill area and River Trail.
Walking is the best way!
Other Things to Note
We have two social pets that love greeting our guests and welcoming them to our home. Parking is on the side street. We are more for short term stays. Check-in is between 4-10:30 p.m. Thank you!
We ask that visitors to take off their shoes upon entering the house as well clean up after themselves during their stay and upon their departure.
This is a room in a townhome-style duplex with a young couple. They are friendly and welcoming, offering information about the area. Melanie even gave me a ticket to a local event. Room comes with a private bathroom. The bed is very comfotable. The location is near local restaurants and coffee shops, etc. I may return for a summer stay :-)
Melanie and Mark are amazing hosts!
They were super friendly and nice and made everything to make me feel at home.
Their pets - dog Dizzy and cat Roo, are as friendly as the owners!
The room and private bathroom are very clean and nice. I had a great sleep every night.
The house is situated in a nice calm neighborhood with some great cafes and restaurants in 5 mins walking distance.
Walking to downtown area is around 15 mins. As Mark and Melanie are cycling enthusiasts - their garage is full of bikes, and they were very nice to let me use one. They are also great to give an advice on surrounding bike trails and other outdoors adventures.
In short, my stay at their place couldn't have been better! I would definitely recommend this to my friends.
I've stayed with Mark & Melanie a couple of times as I frequent Bend for skiing & found them to be excellent & accommodating hosts. The upstairs of the house gives the guest lots of privacy and there are plenty of amenities within walking distance. I'd recommend their pad to anyone traveling through Bend.
Melanie's cozy room was my first Airbnb experience and it was perfect. Melanie and little Dizzy, (her pup), met me at the door and I felt immediately comfortable. The location is ideal for all activities in Bend and it's within walking distance to great restaurants, coffee shops, and stores. Marc and Melanie are just right hosts allowing me to to enjoy this great experience at my own pace. I had some trepidations about doing this alone, but those worries are completely gone. I am so appreciative of Marc's and Melanie's warm, natural hospitality. One word: Perfect.
The only frustrating thing was that the mapping app on my smartphone told me that the address did not exist. It was dark and the apartment is tucked away, so I had a hard time finding it. However, once I finally got settled in, the bed was very comfortable, the hosts were sociable and accomodating (they even offered me dinner), and the pets were friendly but not overly enthusiastic about it.
Our stay was exactly as advertised and we were more than happy with our stay. Our hosts were friendly and tolerant of our puppy who has to go potty every 3 hours at night. To be able to bring our puppy while we went on our Mt Bachelor vacation really alleviated stress for us! If your wondering where to eat just ask they will steer you in the right direction!
Mark and I enjoy meeting new people and are happy to open our home to others that may be visiting Bend or are looking to move here. We have a sunny, spacious room with a comfortable double size futon and private bath. We want to keep the cost affordable to all travelers. We look forward to hosting you! Cyclist and outdoor enthusiasts encouraged!
