About this listing
Clean, comfortable and affordable stay in a house, shared w/ other airbnb travelers, in mid-town Bend. Just minutes from the downtown scene, where you will find good food and lots of beer.
Rent 1 of 3 bedrooms with access to 1 shared bathroom. 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 four bedrooms for my airbnb guests. The two shared bathrooms are shared for my airbnb guest, as well.
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.
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
Other things to note
I consider your pets as additional guests. Please include them in the number of guests in your party, as I charge a $10 per night fee, just like a human. Thank you!
Pets are considered guests. Please include them in the total number of guests you want to reserve the room for. A $10 per night, per guest fee will apply, after the first guest. I have a total human occupancy of 8. So if your party exceeds 2 with your pet and you still want to stay, just reach out to me for availability.
For me, hosting is like opening my home to "friends I just haven't met yet!" My listings are each unique sanctuaries and are offered to YOU in your travels. I am happy to host you in Bend and Redmond.
I began hosting travelers after my 1st airbnb experience as a guest, while visiting my son, away at college in Tacoma Washington. These past five years hosting continues to be a fantastic experience. I love it!
I really enjoy talking with guests and making sure that the accommodations are clean and secure for your enjoyment. An added benefit; I love watching the social interaction between guests, as they share my home with other travelers. I think we all crave the unexpected social interaction and Airbnb certainly provides an opportunity to cross paths with interesting and fun people from around our world. This gives me the chance to share my favorite places to eat, drink and explore Central Oregon with folks that have chosen to check out Bend and beyond.
I am current on my operating licenses and paying room tax in Bend and abiding by the rules of my land use permit at each location. As a responsible host, I have educated myself on the city requirements. Your reservations are safe with me.
I am fortunate to team up with my friend Greg, and offer 2 homes in Bend, and one home in Redmond. We have 10 rooms between us!
Greg is an artist and a local high-end home builder. He excels at remodeling and furnishing his homes with style. He has extensive world travel and enjoys sharing stories with other travelers. If you stay at the Mid Century Modern home, you will most likely meet him, as he lives in the upper level of this split-level home. He also owns the Chelsea House, in Redmond, a house we salvaged together. During this extensive interior remodel, our first project together, we discovered that "we make a good team!"
Welcome to Central Oregon! We look forward to hosting your stay!
