A lovely brand new vacation rental. Fully furnished with a king, private bedroom; hide-a-bed in living room, gourmet kitchen, washer and dryer, WiFi, fireplace, bbq and bikes. It is located right across the street from the Deschutes River, and only 5 minutes from Downtown Bend. There are miles on hiking trails, hundreds of miles of Mt. Bike trails and Road Biking at it (website hidden). Bachelor Ski Resort is only a forty minute drive.
Shopping, Brew Pubs and amazing Restaurants are within walking distance.
This is truly a place to relax, get energized and truly experience Bend.
This was our first AirBnB experience. Wendy's one-bedroom house felt spacious and easily left us wanting to return. The large kitchen area (fully furnished) made cooking easeful. We visited with our 3 month old - I can't imagine what our trip would have looked like without the washer and dryer. We did at least a couple loads a day. The bed was comfortable and the speakers to plug my iPhone into handy.
The location was so-so. The street is marginally busy, it's not "nestled" in the woods or even a tree'd neighborhood. But, it is super accessible to downtown and the highway system but still seemed pretty quiet both during the day and night. Although it was right across from the river, there was not great access to walking along it. However, if we hadn't had a baby to tote around Wendy provides access to a couple bikes (how thoughtful!) to ride to the nearest river trail.
All-in-all we will definitely be staying here next time we're in Bend. Thanks Wendy!
