I can't say enough about how great Angela and Brandon's suite was. I had some of the best sleep ever, the bed was super comfortable, really (and I mean really) hot water in the bathroom, which felt really good after a day of hiking. I waved at Brandon and got to speak to Angela during the first couple of days of my 17 day stay (she is so friendly and treats you like a close friend), other than that, you don't even know they're around.
Anytime they needed to get a hold of me to schedule a time to clean the room, it was done through a text message and always courteous and willing to work with my schedule, and always asked me if there was anything that I needed. They are the best hosts I've encountered.
They apologized about opening the garage door early in the morning, but I never heard anything at all since the room has more than adequate sound proofing. The room is incredibly quiet, dark and very comfortable.
I will never stay in a hotel again when there are hosts like Angela and Brandon.
I know they are moving to their new home in Bend and I've been told that they will have a room available there. I plan on staying with them again on my next visit. So you really can't do better by staying anywhere other than with Angela and Brandon.
This suite was perfect for our needs. The home is in a quiet neighborhood which backs up to open space. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom was modern, and they provided a small fridge with water and supplies for coffee and tea. We never met Angela or Brandon personally, but we still felt very welcome in their home.
The room was lovely and the place was easy to find. As soon as I hit the bed, I was asleep. This was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in.
Loved the cozy private unit. We came in pretty late at night, so having a private entrance was ideal at that time. Very clean and neat. I would definitely recommend!
The Drakes apartment in Bend was even more beautiful than the pictures! The bed was huge and so comfortable. Everything in this apartment was extremely clean. The neighborhood was really quiet but also close enough to restaurants and shopping and the Drakes left great recommendations! Check-in and out was so simple and Angela was always easy to reach if we had any questions.
We had a great visit in Bend and enjoyed staying at Angela and Brandon's place. They've done a really nice job making the room cozy and functional for guests. Just far enough from town to be quiet and intimate, and close enough to reach everything in just a few minutes.
We had an awesome time in Bend. This suite was a nice, quiet place to come home to after our Bend adventures. Simple and easy setup. Would definitely recommend this suite!

My husband and I LOVE Bend and our plan was to retire here and have a vacation rental. Luckily we had the opportunity to do so sooner and jumped on it! We would love to share our experience(s) here in Bend with others in an economical way. We love the outdoors! My husband is an ultra runner and I am a 10 time Ironman finisher. We are constantly outdoors and love every aspect Bend has to offer. We have two daughters (my step-daughters) and two pound puppies which we adore. We are quiet, yet friendly, conscientious types. You could call us "old fashioned" in our values and are a spiritual and faithful family. The best motto I heard at the start of every Ironman: "The only thing you can control is your attitude." We are looking forward to meeting you and making your stay as comfortable and carefree as possible!
