About This Listing
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 most spaciously in a king 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 bath 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
I stayed here for one night on my way driving north to WA. I arrived late at night but Lee was really helpful about making arrangements for me to let myself in and make myself at home. There are 3 guest rooms that share a bathroom but I never ran into anyone. I hit the road again before I actually had a chance to meet Lee in person, but her cat Marley made sure to greet me ;) Overall my stay was very comfortable and everything was just as described.
I had a lovely time. I was only stopping in Bend for the night and needed a warm bed and hot shower. Even though we never met the house and my room we're welcoming enough. The next morning I laid in my big comfy bed and played with her sweet cat. There were Bend information magazines which were very helpful in choosing my lunch location the next day. It was the perfect place to rest for a bit.
I didn't get a chance to meet Lee but everything was great. Nice house, good location, communication was good. She made sure I was able to check in, even though she couldn't be there. House is very clean. Cat is friendly. There was a couple staying in the other bedroom. They were polite and respectful.
Lee Marie was a very friendly and welcoming host. The room and bed were comfortable and relaxing. The house was a safe location and a good starting point to explore Bend.
Lee was incredibly friendly and responsive. She was flexible in our arrival and even left us instructions if we needed to check in early. We didn't see her after that, but the house felt welcoming. Guests share a wing of the house--three total guest rooms, one guest-exclusive restroom, but we never had a conflict. The house is well connected to main streets for smooth travel throughout the area. We recommend staying here!
I am very pleased with my stay at Lee Stecklers house. My daughter and I stayed in a very comfortable king bed; for me, its all about how comfortable the bed is!!! Even though the other two rooms were always in use, sharing the one bathroom was very easy... I can be a bathroom hog, but we didn't stumble over each other, at all!! Bless you, Lee, you were a good host.
Lee was an excellent host! Her laid back vibe made us feel relaxed and welcomed. The space was very comfortable. We had a great stay!

About the Host, Lee Marie
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
