The Space

We so appreciate you taking the time to see what the Little House has to offer you. And a new FYI: due to rising utilities costs (yikes!) we are raising the nightly rate of the LH by $10, starting October 1, 2014. Here's the deal - if you book prior to 10/1, no matter when you visit, your rate will be what guests are currently enjoying. Book today!

We are pleased to share our private enclave with you, and look forward to you being our guest. Most of our guests say "it's like coming home" when staying at the Little House. In fact, one of the best compliments we can get is when guests choose to "stay home" at the LH because "it's so relaxing."

The garden in the Little House courtyard is blooming! It's very inviting for sitting on the patio. Spring has sprung, and that means recreational opportunities have opened up (rafting, kayaking, and fishing, oh my!). Bring your bikes (or rent them online at Hutch's in Bend) and hiking shoes to experience the amazing trails that are nearby. We're also only 30 minutes to Smith Rock, for you climbing buffs. We have local, state and federal parks passes you can borrow while you're visiting.

The Little House at Duck Hollow is a fully-furnished, self-catering guest house and vacation rental located near the heart of Bend, Oregon. Your accommodations include a full kitchen, with range and refrigerator and dining area, a library/2nd semi-private sleeping area for one person, and a spacious master bedroom and 3/4 bath. A hot tub and deck are just steps from your front door. All of this, and less than 5 minutes to downtown Bend (where every hour is happy hour and every night is Friday night), and 30 - 45 minutes to many amazing lakes and hikes on the Cascade Highway.

The Little House is a whimsical, peaceful enclave in an edgy, "blue collar" neighborhood ...and is amazingly convenient to everything Bend and Central Oregon have to offer! There are many entertainment options within walking distance, and many more just a short drive (or bike ride) away. Depending on your season of choice, the Little House is also the perfect place to relax after whitewater rafting, kayaking, biking, birding, or returning from a trip to the spectacular Crater Lake.

We want your stay to be as peaceful, or as adventurous, as you want it to be. Let us know your interests, and we'll have recommendations available. We've been blessed with our guests, who say and write kind words about their experience at the Little House. And the best compliments we get are unsaid, unwritten, when our guests prefer to relax at the LH rather than go out for the day. Pretty cool :)

Duck Hollow is a proud contributor of Transient Room Tax, supporting regional tourism.

Guest Access

Guests have private access to the Little House, and the hosts do not use the deck, courtyard and hot tub (other than for maintenance and for watering the flowers) while guests are at the LH.

Interaction with Guests

Hosts are available for questions, but we do not hover. We live next door to the Little House, but try hard to never intrude on our guests' privacy.

Getting around

Guests have off-street private parking directly in front of the Little House. Downtown Bend is about a 5 minute drive/bike or 20 minute walk from the Little House.

Other Things to Note

The Little House is within a fully-fenced area, so it is very safe and private. Robes are available for guests, as are shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, lotion, etc.

We have a washer/dryer available for guests who stay at least 3 nights.

  • The Little House at Duck's Hollow was a wonderful place to stay while in Bend/Central Oregon. Kevin and Deb were gracious hosts and very helpful and accommodating. The digs were private and comfortable (and the hot tub was a nice touch too). Definitely a place I'd go back to.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Duck Hollow. Deb & Kevin made special effort to ensure we could find their place easily, they were a wealth of information on activities in the area and very clear on how things were set up so it was easy for us and our dog to settle in and feel comfortable. The park passes they had available for our use were wonderful. Although the neighbourhood is a bit run down, i was comfortable walking my dog by myself and the neighbours were very pleasant. We needed to shorten the length of our stay and our hosts were very understanding. They were able to find someone else to fill in the dates and our money was happily refunded. All in all a well set up accommodation with very pleasant hosts. We look forward to returning in the future.

  • Debby and Kevin were amazing hosts! Upon arrival we were given a quick tour of The Little House and even had a bottle of wine waiting. The kitchen was fully equipped. We didn't cook but had the bagels and cream cheese and bananas, that were provided for breakfast. They were very knowledgable about the area and knew of good places to hike and eat. We also enjoyed the hot tub both nights. This was a great first Airbnb experience. We hope to return during ski season. Thank you!

  • Duck Hollow was a wonderful weekend getaway! It is totally private, charming and spacious. Debby and Kevin were extremely helpful and even provided a list of Bend highlights for the weekend. We came for the Michael Franti concert, but we took in many other festivities....best Farmer's Market we've been to, Cruxapalooza was fun, Bite of Bend, etc. We want to come back soon and bring our bikes! Noi Thai was delicious. Thank you for a great Airbnb experience. We hope to return soon!

  • My wife and I have stayed at the Little House at DH several times and we always enjoy ourselves. Debby and Kevin are excellent hosts that go the extra mile to see that your time in Bend is enjoyable. The location is great, just off the main road and central to everything in town. Oh, the hot tub outside your door is just a bonus!

  • We had an excellent stay at Duck Hollow! Such courteous and helpful hosts, plenty of space and a full kitchen. We even brought our 2 little girls and they had a lot of fun. Bottle of wine was great and a nice hot tub!

    Plenty to do closeby. Went to Deschutes brewery, " The Lot", and even for a hike at Dillon Falls. Would definitely love to come back again. Thanks so much!

  • We had a great time The Little House with Deb and Kevin. They were kind, welcoming, available, yet gave us plenty of space to enjoy our weekend. The space was perfect: clean, comfortable, well-stocked, and very spacious for 2 people. The location is also really great, it was an easy bike ride downtown, however if you're looking for somewhere that you can walk easily to different locations, this may not be the spot for you. All in all, we had a great stay, and would highly recommend this rental!

  • Debby and Kevin were the most amazing hosts. Upon our arrival they gave us tour and were very knowledgeable about the area. With their guidance we found some great local spots and went on several spectacular hikes. The house was well equipped for cooking and relaxing, we will definitely use this as a base next time we visit the area.

  • WOW, what an adorable little house! My boyfriend and I stayed in Bend for two nights and were pleasantly surprised. The little House was more than we expected. Debby gave us a warm welcome and tour of where were were going to stay; she also baked banana bread and had a bottle of wine waiting for us. It was very clean, well furnished and exactly what we needed for our short get-away. We look forward to coming back and we're bringing the kids!

About
We are easy-going baby boomers. Kevin is involved in environmental and social issues, and Debby is a mental health counselor. We moved from Colorado to Bend in order to be closer to the outdoor activities we adore (skiing, kayaking, hiking, biking, etc.). We've made lifestyle decisions that give us more opportunity to choose play over work, so we consider ourselves quite brilliant :) We love to laugh, and have an optimistic view of living life. If there's a silver lining, we'll find it. Our goal is to share what we know about the Central Oregon experience, and guide our guests, when asked. Bend and the surrounding areas have everything you need to experience fun, excitement, and serenity. We have it all!
