Clean, comfortable and affordable stay in mid-town Bend. Just minutes from the downtown scene, where you will find good food and lots of beer.
Sleeps two in a double bed.
Located in the middle of Bend Oregon, my house is a great base for exploring the city and beyond. Whether you'd like to take a hike up Pilot Butte, grab a local beer, take off to see Dillon Falls on the Deschutes River or ski Mt. Bachelor, it feels like you are only minutes away.
I open my home to you for your enjoyment during your stay in Bend. I have three bedrooms and one bathroom for guests.
The kitchen may be used by guests as well, ready with cookware and basic spices. Just bring your main ingredients to cook your own meals 'at home'. Of course, if you choose to eat out, there are many great choices 5 minutes to downtown. Deschutes Brewery, Silver Moon Brewery, Taj Palace, Brother Johns, or the classic Pine Tavern are all recommended choices.
Also living at the house is a cat named Marley, who is a very good greeter.
I cut custom lapidary sculpture and jewelry. Some of my pieces are found through out the house and they are for sale. I work with quartz primarily, cutting small pieces, hand held and pendants, and also have a collection of quartz lit up in light bases of old growth juniper. I work on pieces most days in my studio. Tours are available, so if you have a raw piece of stone that you've been wanting cut or polished, bring it in and lets see what can happen.
I look forward to meeting you and sharing my little piece of Bend. Cheers, Lee
Lee was a great host, the room was as advertised- clean, spacious, and in a quiet area. Would definitely stay there again next time I am in Bend!
Great, clean room in good location, walkable to downtown. Quiet and cozy. Host was flexible with arrival and friendly. Bend is awesome!
Lee greeted us with a smile and everything was ready for us to settle in. She was quite welcoming and left us in privacy most of our stay. This was a very pleasant first experience with airbnb. I would stay there again.
Lee Marie was a great host. The bed was very comfortable. You had use of the kitchen and the refrigerator with plenty of pots to cook with as well as dishes. Three people share a bathroom but Lee Marie kept it very clean. Whatever you needed she was a phone call away. Even taught me how to make delicious kale chips.
Lee and her daughter were good hosts, making sure all my needs were accounted for. House was comfortable and clean. Good value for your money.
Good rental place for your money. All the folks that passed through were quiet and respectful while I stayed there. Having access to a full kitchen made it easy to prepare meals and not have to eat out every day. The house was close to everything in town. If you're allergic to cats, you may have an issue staying here. Other than that, it was a great place to crash.

Hello, My name is Lee.
I am 46 years old, a business owner and a home owner and have lived in Bend for most of my life. I have a daughter, who has just moved into her own apartment here in Bend and a son, who is living in Tacoma and attending college. I have owned this house for the past 8 years and love the location in the middle of Bend. I have been a log home designer for the past 20 years, yet have embraced the change in economy and started up a new lapidary business in 2012. My studio is at my house and is open for tours. If you have a special rock or mineral that you've always wanted turned into a pendant or placed on a pedestal/light base, lets talk! I am also open to teaching workshops, allowing you to cut your own piece.
My interests are many. From creating community and volunteer work. I enjoy the connections made with others. I have been to Burning Man the past three years and feel it is having a larger impact on me, as I open up more to my own potential. I love my house and gardening and making improvements over time. Alot of satisfaction in making my home comfortable and I enjoying sharing it with others.
Looking forward to meeting you all. Cheers! Lee Marie Steckler
