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've 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)but great on a hot day. 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

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.
