Interaction with Guests
We provide a keyless entry system. The keycode will be sent in a separate email.
Our goal is to meet and interact with as many guests as possible, but there are times when we can't meet everyone face-to-face. You can always message or call us if you have any questions. Contact info will be provided when you make a reservation.
We respect our guests privacy. We also value our privacy and rarely socialize, but it's really up to the guests to decide how much interaction they want to have.
We also have music room/studio/shop attached to the guest suite. At times, we rehearse our music and record. This happens mostly in the early evenings maybe once or twice during the week. Most guests appreciate the low volume acoustic music, but we are aware that there may be times when guests want some peace and quiet. We will let you know when we're planning on practicing to coordinate those times and be sure not to disturb you.
By making a reservation you agree that you've read all of the details and agree to the terms and conditions as detailed in the House Rules section in this listing.

Stan and Jan Roach
Great place! It was exactly as described and perfect for a few fun days in Bend. It's in a great neighborhood close to downtown. It has a great new air conditioner which was nice during the warm summer days.
Stan met me when I arrived and gave me the run down on the guest suite and a few ideas for things to do around town.
I would definitely stay here again!
The description of the place was accurate and was perfect for us. Stan and Jan were very accommodating and gracious.
Stan and Jan's little guest suite was so cute! It had everything you would need for a stay and more. They worked around our unbelievably late arrival and made us feel very welcome. Sam, the dog, is a sweetheart and we were lucky enough to meet him on our last day. I would absolutely recommend renting their place!
Exactly as advertised: a charming place to use as a home base while exploring Bend :) Stan, Jan, and Sam the Dog are super friendly, too!
Lovely stay at Stan & Jan's Bend cottage for the 4th of July weekend. We kept cool during a super hot weekend and were treated to a great fireworks show. Can't wait to go back!
My husband and I stayed at Stan and Jan's guest house for our anniversary and has such a great time. Stan gave us a tour of the cottage as soon as we arrived. They were so helpful and let us know that they were just a phone call away if we needed anything at all. They told us about the best swimming spots nearby and the best way to get to downtown on our bikes. The listing was very accurate. It was in a nice, peaceful neighborhood close to downtown. We will surely be back!
Thank you Stan and Jan!

About the Host, Stan & Jan
We feel fortunate to live in Bend. We've been coming to this area for recreation and vacations since 1981 and learned how to ski and snowboard on Mt. Bachelor. We finally realized our dream and moved to Bend in 2003. It's a beautiful city and is known as a great destination for outdoor recreation and cultural events. We love that we can provide travelers and visitors a place to call home while they are here working, playing, vacationing or whatever reason they stay in one of our rentals.
We have been in the short-term/vacation rental business since 1988 starting with a Sunriver vacation home so we know what guests expect and do our best to make you comfortable. Our Drake Park Cottages and Bend Guest Suite are managed by us personally rather then though a property management company. This give us the opportunity get to know our guests and interact with them on a more personal level. Our rentals are maintained meticulously and furnished tastefully and comfortably. We have each rental thoroughly cleaned between guests so it will be ready just for you! We invite you to check out the hundreds of 5 star reviews we have received since we became Airbnb Hosts.
My background is in marketing and sales strategy. In my spare time I'm a singer/songwriter, actor, producer and director. My wife Jan is a retired engineer from Hewlett Packard who loves to supply and furnish our rentals with everything you'll need to enjoy your stay. These days we stay busy managing our rentals, taking care of our home and traveling when we can. Come visit us sometime when you're heading this way. We'd love to host you. Safe Travels!
