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.

We're only 2 miles to the Parkway, 5 minutes to downtown and 35 minutes to Mt. Bachelor. Shopping and major medical facilities are nearby. This is a great central location!

Hosts Stan & Jan were very welcoming and gave us total privacy. We enjoyed short conversations when meeting near the cars. Stan knows the area well and is a good resource. The private side-gate entrance directly behind the off-street parking was extremely convenient for loading our bikes each day. The covered area next to the cottage was very secure and we felt comfortable leaving our bikes outside. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and just as described and shown in photos. The location was convenient for our day trips to Sun River and Sisters. The neighborhood very quiet and relaxing after a long day of riding. We won't be going back to motels after this experience.
I couldn't have asked for a better first-time Airbnb experience. Stan and Jan's cottage was the perfect place for us (two overworked Portlanders seeking a quiet escape from the city) -- the cottage was pristine, utterly cozy and inviting, and stocked with all sorts of useful goodies (pots, pans, silverware, hot plate, videos, a towel warmer, etc.). Since we were trying to flee from our noisy neighborhood in PDX, the peace and quiet was absolutely refreshing: no noise except for rain and hail, and even the sweet dog Sam made nary a bark apart from when we first met him. It was tempting to just lock ourselves inside and be hermits for three days.
Luckily, the great location made it easy to sneak out for food, city exploration, and a beautiful hike (Pilot Butte). Stan and Jan were wonderful hosts -- very friendly and welcoming, but also totally respectful of privacy. My only complaint is that whatever Airbnb we book next will have a tough time topping this one. Highly recommended for anyone passing through Bend!
This was my first air bnb experience and it was very good. Stan and Jan were helpful and friendly. The cottage was in a perfect location as I had work related trainings just down the (email hidden)arles Medical Center.
The cottage was very clean, and I appreciated that it had no particularly strong scents. No potpourri or strong smelling cleansers. The cottage had ample space to hang clothes, a small covered area to park bicycles and all the basic things I could need in a kitchenette. There is one burner, a coffee pot, fridge, oversize toaster oven and microwave. Not for cooking big meals, but perfect for simple meals and re-warming items.
Also, the area was very quiet, so easy to get rest. There is a small patio area with two chairs to relax on as well. Stand and Jan live right beside the cottage, so we saw one another daily, but I felt we had privacy. It was so much nicer than coming home to a motel after a long day of work.
Stan was very friendly. The apartment was clean and homey. Good location right by a nice park with a beautiful view. Our dog and his dog Sam were best buds trying to show each other up :) Thanks Stan!
