Description

The space

Our Santa Fe styled pueblo sits on top of Long Butte six (6) miles
north of Bend on a beautiful rimrock and a 180+ view east to west
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; map is currently in error.I need to add at this point, that we don't allow babies as we have other guests to be concerned about and this is not a child friendly casa.I am sorry this has to be.

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.
Unfortunately we do not allow guest pets cats or dogs.We have a dog,but she never is allowed in the guests sleeps in the garage studio with me or in the living is a pet sitter down the street;a guest dog could be with Ginger and I in the garage/studio and could be in the house during the day-No bedrooms,EVER.., Thank you for choosing us,Wayne,Sonnie.

Guest access

We welcome people to make themselves at home.Enjoy the deck facing the mountains,enjoy the winter fireplace in the living is limited use of the kitchen,but the bedroom has a refrigerator and a coffee maker as well.
We provide luxurious bath products for your pleasurable use.

Interaction with guests

I love the interaction with our guests and conversations,most often at delicious breakfasts.
I tell everyone they can have all the privacy they wish or they can enjoy the home and grounds and sharing of stories when desired.

Getting around

Parking is in front of our garage doors that is signed Quest Parking.

Did not feel like a guest... we felt "like home... Ohana!" Journeying home, was like leaving a family friend behind! Mahalo!

The house is by far one of the most unique places that I have seen. With an absolutely amazing view and great host you cannot go wrong. The room was clean and perfect. Bathroom was spotless with an amazing tub and shower. Don't be afraid to book at this location because you will not be disappointed. Lastly our host Wayne was nice enough to wake up early and cook breakfast. If I am ever in the area I will for sure rebook! Thank you
