About this listing
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;(website hidden) 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.

Wayne stayed in great communication with us as we neared Santa Fe Pueblo on a Cliff near Bend, Or. He and Sonnie keep a lovely home furnished with so much cultural art and artifacts, many native to the area.
Wayne welcomed us to their home on arrival and showed us around the homestead. Our rooms were comfortable nicely decoratesd The air conditioning worked very well for the time we needed it.
My daughter, her husband, my husband and I reserved both rooms that are available. It's a great location, a bed and breakfast at it's heart.
Wayne prepared wonderful breakfasts both mornings we were there. Crepes, creams, seasonal fruits, eggs, ham, ( with a choice of hot sauces.) The Frencs-press coffee was so good too.
This is a great place to stay for two adult couples. We enjoyed Ginger, the senior canine member of the household.
Another wonderful visit with Wayne and Sonnie! We look forward to their hospitality, openness, and great humor every time we come through Central Oregon. Can't wait till the next time.... Thanks again!
The home is better than the pictures and Wayne and Sonnie are fantastic. I'd go again, in a heartbeat,
We were very fortunate to have our very first Airbnb experience with Wayne and Sonnie.
They were kind and sincere, heart warming people. Wish had more time in Bend.
Next time we will stay longer for sure!!
Wayne was such a gracious host--where to begin? From our arrival, he was very easygoing and gave us a tour of the premises and our room. We were amazed when we found out that he built this home for him and Sonnie--you'll learn more of hist talents when you visit!
The bedroom and bathroom are very spacious, and you'll have all the essentials you expect (linens, sheets, shampoo, soap, bath tissue). The room has a fan and window air conditioner, but we didn't have to use the A/C during our trip because it was so cool outside last weekend. If the sky permits (not cloudy or hazy from the recent forest fires) then you should definitely take him up on an invitation to the rooftop of his studio. The stars are amazing--we luckily caught the tail end of the Perseid meteor shower!
One of my favorite perks of this bnb was the breakfast-Wayne's a great cook and you'll have plenty to eat! He even fried up some of our leftover paella from Barrio (a great restaurant he recommended in downtown Bend) which we devoured on our last morning there.
If you're laid back, like the stars and breeze, and watching the birds have breakfast while you sip coffee with a great view of the Sisters and Mt. Bachelor, then this is the place for you! Ginger's a sweet old pup too, and you barely notice she's there unless you go to pet her. Thank you for hosting and opening your lovely home to us--we'll be back and would recommend this place for sure!
What an incredible experience! This was our first time using air b n b and I think it will be hard to top this place. Wayne is such an amazing guy and his home is so beautiful and unique. We drove up and couldn't believe the view that we had. It was breathtaking. His breakfasts were DELICIOUS and healthy. He puts a lot of effort into making you feel right at home. He had pamphlets available on local activities and restaurants. The room was very clean and cozy and the bathroom was beautiful. The view of the cascades and Bend made it hard to want to leave the house at all! We even got to watch the meteor shower from his studio. He makes it easy for you to have privacy or be interactive if you want. We had some great conversations and truly enjoyed the experience as a whole. Thanks so much Wayne! We'll miss Ginger and her soothing snores :) Can't wait to come back soon!
