About this listing
NOT just a room, this is a HOME,for a warm,peaceful, homey stay. Fully stocked kitchen for cooking. Private bathroom. I have 2 bedrooms w/queen beds available & 3 queen airbeds as well. (IF u need master suite,then entire home avail in other listing)
I have TWO (2) bedrooms available for you, plus space for airbeds in other rooms as well. I take pride in making my home a sanctuary away from the hub bub of the public, and ensuring complete privacy and anonymity! It's no mansion, just my home that I've lived in for 30 years and raised my children here. I can interact with you, or give you complete privacy, it is up to you. Let me know what you need and I will do my very best to give it to you and make your stay pleasurable and relaxing. I would be staying in my Master Bedroom during your stay.
I live alone with only a mountain behind me, overlooking the city, yet only 5 minute drive from downtown. Only traffic on my street are my neighbors... who would not recognize anyone unless they were Bing Crosby. LOL. Be prepared to enjoy your morning coffee to the harmony of the birds chirping their little hearts out. Watch the family of Quail run through the yard, or an occasional deer off the mountain.
I am a mom, gramma, daughter, sister, friend, and I don't smoke, have no pets any longer, so it is a peaceful & very quiet & discreet home to stay in. It's not a palace, but it's homey. I live in scenic Klamath Falls located in Southern Oregon. The perfect centrally located place to recharge in between the many adventures available! My home is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1700 square foot home, and I am renting out up to 2 of the bedrooms that each have queen beds. You’ll have private bath right across hall, yet you also get use my entire home; washer and dryer, fully stocked kitchen that you may cook in, dining & living room, in my quiet and peaceful home. BBQ on my back deck. There is a TV in living room and free Wi-Fi. I also have 3 pillowtop queen airbeds in addition to the 2 real queen beds, if needed. Go ahead and fall asleep on my huge soft leather sectional in living room, it’s as comfortable as a bed, and no one will bother you. Has a view of gorgeous Mt. Shasta from my front deck and a wonderful mountain behind me to hike on. It is in a very private area. I will include snacks, and full use of my kitchen to make whatever you want, and I will provide light continental breakfast as well. Just let me know what your preferences are, such as types/brands/flavors of yogurt/bagels/fruit/cereal, and I will cater to your specific needs and likes. I go to bed early, and then get up early for work, so basically it is truly as if you are renting an entire house all to yourself, for just the cost of a room.
Note: this is my home in a quiet, private location on mountainside. It is not a "condo" with paper thin walls. My fully stocked kitchen is FULLY stocked... not just salt and pepper ;)
This is the perfect place to stop and rest if you are traveling through Klamath Falls, but it is also the perfect alternative to a motel for Business people, or for Locum Tenums that need a temporary place to stay while working here. It's a very quiet and peaceful place to be. Children grown and gone. It's like having the house to yourselves. I go to bed early and arise early, then I go to work 8-5 Mon-Fri. I have had musicians and actors stay here incognito. I never share information.
Besides the numerous hiking opportunities, I do have a treadmill in my "back room" available for your use.
******NOTE! IF YOU NEED MORE SPACE AND WANT TO ALSO HAVE USE OF MY MASTER BEDROOM with King bed and additional bathroom , in which case I would then move out during this stay, you must go to my "OTHER LISTING" titled "PRIVATE HOME GETAWAY W/GREAT VIEW" and book that instead. (cost is higher for that, of course)
I only rent to one "party" at a time, whether you only use 1 bedroom or 2, so you will always have your own private bathroom.
I do not have any pets due to allergies.
I'm looking forward to meeting you!
And PLEASE follow my driving instructions for getting to my home, because, everytime someone has used their GPS, for some odd reason, it takes them on the longest routes possible! My directions are the shortest to my house. And when arriving, please park up along the right side of my house up on the flat drive.
Like No Place Else On Earth
Crater Lake has inspired people for thousands of years. No place else on earth combines a 2000 ft deep, pure lake, so blue in color; sheer surrounding cliffs, almost two thousand feet high; two picturesque islands; and a violent volcanic past. It is a place of immeasurable beauty, and an outstanding outdoor laboratory and classroom.
Lava Beds National Monument is a land of turmoil, both geological and historical. Over the last half-million years, volcanic eruptions on the Medicine Lake shield volcano have created a rugged landscape dotted with diverse volcanic features. More than 700 caves, Native American rock art sites, historic battlefields and campsites, and a high desert wilderness experience await you!
People come from all over the world to take pictures of our unique collection of birds on and around Klamath Lake (10 minutes from my home) and Tulelake Wildlife Refuge.
I am only an hour away from world famous Crater Lake.
The Oregon Shakespearean Theator (known all over the world) is an hour's drive away, as is the world famous National Lava Beds with it's mysterious underground caves/caverns to explore.
The area is well known for it's hiking, fishing, hunting, sailing, and much more.
Wonderful photography opportunities!
My home is 3 miles from "downtown" and 6 miles from Sky Lakes Medical Center (our hospital) and OIT (Oregon Institute of Technology).
The Steens Sports Park is only about 1 mile away from me, too.
We also have the Ross Raglund Theater, and a public municipal pool, the Pelican Cinemas movie theater and a multitude of restaurants.
Interaction with Guests
Interaction is as much as you desire. I give you use of my entire home (except my master suite). I can stay away, or interact. It is up to you. I want you to enjoy full privacy. You may cook in my kitchen as well!
What I love about my neighborhood is the quiet and privacy of it. Also the breathtaking view overlooking the city and Mt Shasta, and the calmness of viewing my backyard... an entire mountain, which by the way is great for hiking.
People that stay with me USUALLY drive up from or down to San Francisco (same distance away - I'm right in the middle), make a pit stop here and since I am exactly centrally located from alot of sights, take in Crater Lake National Park and/or the Lava Beds National Monument and sometimes Ashland which is a quaint little town that homes the world famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival .. and the Britt Festivals a little bit further... oh and Lake of The Woods is only a 45 min drive from my house, oh heck there are too many hiking and wilderness areas to explore to even list! You drive right by Mt. Shasta to get to me, and I look out at Mt Shasta from my front deck (when there isn't smoke!). It's only an hour drive away from me too. It's the 2nd highest volcano in the USA! And then during the summer months there's the Klamath Falls Farmers' Market which is a 5 minute drive from my house. Wow, I just realized I am right in between the highest volcano in the United States AND the deepest lake in the United States. You can see how you can spend a whole week at my AirBnB home with all these day adventures to experience! Then some just do NOTHING but totally relax in the quietness of my backyard on the mountain side, listening to the birds. Well then there's the occasion business person in town for meeting and is tired of the Shilo ... or the overflow from weddings and class reunions, etc. I even had a Locum Tenen (temporary doctor) stay here for 3 months with me!
There is public transit in Klamath Falls. There are car rentals available at the airport and Enterprise rental is just down on South 6th St, a 5 minute drive from my house. Enterprise is within walking distance from the Train station as well. The airport is just about 6 miles from my home. And plenty of parking at my home.
Other Things to Note
My home is a great central location to many areas of interest. And it is not just an empty condo or cold motel room, it is a home, a CLEAN home, very homey and comfortable and a kitchen filled with everything at your (website hidden)'s a very private area, no public traffic, only people that live on the street drive by, yet only 3 miles from city center. Steen's sports park is just about a mile down the road, and Klamath Falls is home to Kiger Stadium!
No smoking or animals inside of house. Crated pets are ok in back room or garage, and I do have a fenced in back yard they can run free. I just can't have pets running through my home due to allergies, and their nails scratch my floor.
No drugs tolerated, but alcohol is fine.
No loud parties to disturb the neighbors or wildlife.
Must thoroughly enjoy yourself and make yourself at home! :) Tell me what breakfast foods you want and I will buy for you!
I like Teri's home, very sweet and comfortable which really makes u feel at home. There's everything u need for a family base. Teri provides you warmly with too much food, snacks and fruits. Our kids like her living room, kitchen and dining room and those board games hidden under the coffee tables. Teri works at very early morning but you won't feel her move around at the house at all, she makes u feel like the owner of the house, very respectful and considerable. The house is kind of far from crater lake if you don't mind of driving, it is not an issue. Thanks!
It was really wonderful having Ivy and her family in my home. They all were very respectful, nice, polite, neat and tidy! Yes it is about an hour drive up the mountain to the lake. We are called "The Gateway to Crater Lake" here. No cities between there and here. I also am directly in the center in between the two national parks - Crater Lake and The Lava Beds & Caves, which makes it nice to go to one on a day, then the other on the next day.
They were wonderful guests! I would recommend them as guests in anyone's home, and are welcome back anytime!
Teri was a very sweet host, and she had everything we could have asked for. Beds were comfortable, food was accommodated, and the area is wonderful.
My friends and I had a really late check in (9PM) due to our rental car having complications in SF. And Teri was very accommodating! We recommend her home to everybody. It's a perfect location, 8 min. drive to mall/restaurants and 1.5 hour to the beautiful Crater Lake *must see*. Too bad we didn't get to meet her, but her fast response, kindness and beautiful/clean home filled with her family portraits are a testament of how loving and caring she really is. Happy booking!
Teri waited for us to arrive late in the evening even though she is a very early morning person. Thank you! Also, due to AirB&B's mobile application issue, I had to cancel the original reservation a few days earlier and book the time we stayed. This resulted in only a partial refund. I mentioned this to Teri and she said that she would contact AirB&B to help resolve this issue. I just received email from AirB&B that I will get the rest of the refund back. Thank you Teri again!
You have a beautiful house!
You are welcome! Yes, I kept on them to give you that refund, since it was suppose to be a change of a reservation by just a few days, not a new one, it was not really "cancelled", but just changed. Automated system, ya know? BUT as soon as I told them the situation, they told me they would be refunding the full amount! Yay! Thank you for staying with me, you are welcome back anytime!
Teri was fantastic! Her home was cozy, welcoming and very clean. She was always available to answer our questions. Also it was really neat that she had plenty of food for us to eat.
Teri was very hospitable and she made us feel like home. She has a beautiful place. Her home is a clean, calm and quite place where one can really spend some quality time with himself or his dear ones. I was touched by the serenity of the place.
My girlfriend and I had a great stay.
Teri really goes above and beyond in making us feel like we are at home. It felt like a 5 star hotel with regard to the linen and towel quality. The bed was very comfortable(memory foam), and the bathroom was incredibly clean with great quality appliances. She also provided us with great food suggestions and a hiking guide for crater lake that helped us plan our adventures.
The view from the front and back patio spaces(which both have ample seating) is phenomenal, particularly so in the morning and evening. If we are in the area again we would definitely be staying here.

About the Host, Teri
This is truly your home away from home. I take pride in making my home a sanctuary away from the hub bub of the public, and ensuring complete privacy and anonymity! I can interact with you, or give you complete privacy, it is all up to you. Let me know what you need and I will do my very best to give it to you and make your stay pleasurable and relaxing. I love making people like they are family coming home to visit.
I live alone with only a mountain behind me, overlooking the city, yet only 5 minute drive from downtown. Only traffic on my street are my neighbors... who would not recognize anyone unless they were Bing Crosby. Heh heh ;) You might have an occasional deer visit you to eat apples from my trees, or be entertained by the huge family of quail that live in my bushes and sometimes come out and run around the yard and neighborhood basking in the sun. I enjoy a BBQ, beer or glass of wine on back deck, enjoying the evening breeze off the mountain. Coffee enjoyed in morning either back deck, or on front deck gazing out towards majestic Mt. Shasta & city.
I am a mom, gramma, daughter, sister, friend, and I don't smoke, am not a partier, have no pets any longer. This is a peaceful & very quiet area & an extremely discreet home to stay in. It's not a palace, but it's homey. I enjoy taking pictures of all the breathtaking scenery that God has surrounded me with. I was born in Los Angeles, California but I grew up here. I enjoy spending time with my 2 grown children and 4 grandchildren, going to concerts and meeting new people. I love chocolate, wine with dinner & music, it soothes my soul, and speaks when there are no words. My favorite band for the last 31 years is Bon Jovi (for many reasons, on many levels) so prepare to see my special "BonJovi" back room, filled with special memories of the people that have enriched my life, and the entire rest of my home filled with photos of my special family who are the center of my universe.
One of my many BJ song lyrics motivate me to live: “It’s My Life, it’s now or never, I ain’t gonna live forever, I just want to live while I’m alive, It’s My Life!” And another BJ song, “Welcome to Wherever You Are, this is your life, you made it this far, be who you want to be, be who you are, remember that you’re perfect, God makes no mistakes”
As you are reading this, I hope you are having a joyful & peaceful day!
