overlooking the City of Bend and a stunning view of the Cascade mountains.Please note: we have another room here as well-room with mountain views scroll down to find.Note,follow directions on listing;(website hidden) map is currently in error.
We offer the master bedroom with a luxury bath including double sinks, a walk-in double headed travertine stone shower and a
whirlpool Jacuzzi tub. You will have your own entrance with a
lovely little stone courtyard to enjoy your tea or coffee watching the sun come up. A queen size bed, table and chairs, internet
connection and TV are yours to enjoy.
Guests are free to be private or utilize three other courtyards and
the west end deck to watch the last rays of the sun. Also, we have
a beautiful stone fireplace in the living room to enjoy on the cooler
evenings. A stone patio with benches and a small clay fireplace sits outside the southern bedroom wall for your use.
Our Casa is in the High Desert area of sagebrush, rock outcroppings and ancient junipers (like large Bonsai trees)
where in winter we have much less snow and it is warmer than south and west Bend.Less shade and more sun.
Watch the weather fronts move over the Cascades. Oh, and a
tipi is set-up in the warmer months.
A feeling of privacy exists on our 5 acres where you can frequently see deer below; or, at the birdfeeders, raptors catching the thermals and migratory birds feed and water outside the windows.
Being on a butte with four main roads below means many people enjoy the routes to bicycle and get their burn coming up and
racing down again. Two routes pass over the nearby Deschutes
River with fishing, hiking trails, kyaking and swimming available.
Smith Rocks State Park (world class) climbing and hiking area
is fourteen miles north of us, the Redmond airport, easy access to Highway 20 to Sisters, OR, the wilderness area of the Badlands is east, not far away, and the north end shopping malls
of Bend to our south.
A perfect get-away for the writer, artist, both for the stunning open
sky views, desert terrain and sense of peace and creativity.
A treadmill is available as is a continental breakfast or a full old
fashioned styled one. We use healthy foods.
A second guest bedroom is also available. Want a different Bend
experience, come enjoy an amazing place, where at night, the lights of Bend seem like the shore seen from a boat, and away
from the City lights glow, see a sparkling night sky. We have
plenty of parking.

Wayne and Sonnie were gracious and respectful hosts. The house had a relaxing vibe and was very well kept. We appreciated the conversations over the tasty crepes and coffee Wayne made for breakfast. Me and my husband would stay there again, especially in the big room that has an amazing view of mountains and Bend below. It also had a giant private bathroom and private entrance/exit to the house off the bedroom. Best airbnb experience!
Always a little apprehensive meeting new hosts, but Wayne and Sonnie made us feel like part of the family the minute we stepped in the door. They were very hospitable and made sure that all of our needs were met. Such a lovely home and as much privacy as we wanted. Outstanding breakfasts, quiet setting, wonderful views, comfortable room, short drive to Smith Rock and Redmond. We will definitely recommend this place to others.
Best airb&b experience so far! Wayne went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. We absolutely adored his artistic home, as well as the breathtaking view. Wayne's home cooked breakfast was delicious. Be sure to check out Wayne's art studio (it's where I bought my new favorite necklace).
We had a lovely stay at Wayne and Sonnie's house. The room was cozy and the desert was beautiful. Wayne made us delicious breakfast for both mornings. We enjoyed sitting out on the patio at night looking up at the stars.
A beautiful home with a breathtaking view. Wayne made delicious breakfast and catered to our food allergies. It was nice to be able to come and go from a separate door to our room. However, the communication was not great before our arrival.
Wayne and Sonnie were great hosts for our one night stay in Bend. We loved the location of their Casa, which was outside of Bend where it was nice and quiet but still a very quick drive into town. The house and grounds are lovely, they have definitely added their own artistic character to the whole property. They are a welcoming, friendly, warm couple with whom we felt at home with immediately. Wayne cooked us an amazing breakfast in the morning which we enjoyed while having lively conversation with the two. We definitely plan to keep Wayne and Sonnie's house in mind for our next Bend trip, only next time it will be longer than a one night stay!
