Interaction with Guests
First and foremost that would depend on you. If you would like to chat or have any questions or needs let me know. If I am here I will come and introduce myself to you. I have lived in Bend since 1990
Our home sits on a quiet, no thru traffic street. We are just above the river trail. The river trail wraps around the west-side of Bend, and is loved by people who like to walk/bike/jog/ski/ swim (burr it's cold). If you are sitting on the deck outside at night you could hear the sounds of the roaring river from the First Street Rapids.
You can walk or bike from here. We do have a transit system (BAT). If your intention is to get to the out lying areas I'd suggest having a vehicle

Loved you place in Bend and thanks so much for all the tips! It was great meeting you!
Gilead is a great host, very friendly and courteous. Her apartment is exactly as advertised, very comfortable and plenty of space for the two of us. The location is great, right near the river and within walking distance of downtown. Her recommendations for breakfast and dinner were spot on, and we had a great trip!
Gilead was a wonderful host. The apartment was just as advertised, warm and inviting. Thankfully it literally was warm when we arrived as the weather was a bit chilly. It was great to be walking distance from downtown, the river walk is so convenient. Gilead provided dinner recommendations and guidance on what hikes we might wish to do. She is a very kind and generous host.
We had a lovely stay at Gilead's place. There was plenty of room for our family of two plus an active baby. The bed was comfy and the kitchenette had most everything we needed for snacks and light breakfasts. The location was perfect for doing the river walk and exploring downtown.
Clean, private space exceeded our needs for a weekend visit. Gilead was very helpful with recommendations on activities and food.
Simply wonderful. Host was very accommodating. Home is clean, and great location. Very comfortable bed.
We enjoyed our stay over the Christmas Holiday. The location was great and the apartment was clean and comfortable, just what we needed. Thank you Gilead.
Hello. I moved here the summer of 1990. After being a Nutritionist in Washington D.C. I became a real estate broker in Bend. I then authored 2 books; "Bend Has It All" and "Inside Bend." This became my jump start in finding out what Bend had to offer. I quickly learned how wonderful the people in Bend were. Bend is a melting pot for people from all over this county and beyond. Therefore people reach out to others in making friends.
When we rise in the morning we look out the window to decide which activity we'll do. Often one could go from skiing in the morning to mountain biking in the afternoon.
