Description

The space

The Little House is almost completely booked into September 2017, and Oct/Nov are starting to book (wow!) so if you want to stay at the Little House in 2017, book soon. Check out our new spring garden pics, and book for 2018 spring/summer (also avoid rising nightly rates)! As of Oct. 1, 2016, airbnb will collect a 10.4% transient room tax, per City of Bend STR requirements. This will be added to your base booking charges by airbnb.

Quick note: for some reason - - maps has us listed as an alcohol rehab center. We're not :) We're trying to get this cleared up, but it's a REALLY slow process.

We appreciate you taking the time to see what the Little House has to offer you. We are pleased to share our private enclave with you, and look forward to you being our guest. We are consistently delighted that the Little House is such a fun place to visit :) We are PET friendly (pets are an extra "guest' at $10 per pet per night) WITH CERTAIN CONDITIONS. You MUST discuss it with us first. See more below under "other things to note." We allow TODDLERS, but ask that you know where your child is at ALL times. See more below under "other things to note." BLOCKED DATES: see below under "other things to note."

The Little House at Duck Hollow is a very private (detached), self-catering guest house (with TONS of amenities) located in midtown Bend, Oregon. Your spacious accommodations (almost 600 sq. ft) include a private entrance and private parking for 2 cars (directly in front of the LH, not on the street), a full kitchen, with range, refrigerator and dining area, a library/2nd semi-private sleeping area for one person, and a private master bedroom. The Little House fits 3 people comfortably. The hot tub is 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).

The Little House is a whimsical, serene space in an edgy, diverse neighborhood...and amazingly convenient to everything Bend and Central Oregon have to offer! There are many entertainment options within walking distance, and much more within a 3 minute drive to downtown Bend. Depending on your season of choice, the Little House is the perfect place to relax after skiing, biking, climbing, running, walking, fishing, birding, surfing in the whitewater park, or whatever..... :)

We want your stay to be as calm, 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. We love it when guests choose to "stay home" at the LH because "it's so relaxing." And the best compliments we get are unsaid, unwritten, seen in their smiles. Pretty cool.

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. The floor is concrete and tile, with rugs, so bring your fuzzy slippers.

Complimentary welcoming bottle of wine or beer included, along with juice, fresh fruit, instant oatmeal and snack bars. We do not provide bagels or pastries because no one was eating them :)

Guest access

Guests have their own private entrance to the detached Little House (parking is off road right in front of the LH, not visible from the street). Your hosts do not use the deck, private courtyard or hot tub (other than for maintenance, sweeping the patio, feeding the birds or watering the garden in season) while guests are at the LH.

Interaction with guests

We always meet our guests upon arrival to make sure they will be comfortable. We are available for questions or help, but do not hover. We live next door to the Little House, and try hard to never intrude on our guests' privacy. Truly, you'll barely notice us :)

The neighborhood

Our neighborhood is experiencing a renaissance, is eclectic and diverse, is centrally located (the creative Midtown area), and just minutes from downtown and all major roadways. We have a great brewery (Crux Fermentation), along with MANY restaurants within walking distance.

Getting around

Read all of this if you're new to Bend:

The Little House is a 3 minute drive to downtown Bend. If you're not familiar with Bend, its parking challenges, or the downtown one-way streets, taxis are abundant and affordable, and highly recommended if you're planning a night on the town :) We understand that Lyft and/or Uber might be coming to Bend, but they have not arrived yet.

Walking/biking to downtown: The Little House is on the East side of very busy 3rd Street, which is a main business artery going North - South. Getting across 3rd can be interesting on foot or bike, with the closest crossing light 3 blocks South or 5 blocks North. Know where you're going, and I'll leave it at that :) 20 minute walk/5 minute bike ride to Downtown Bend.

Walking to Old Mill: Crossing light at Wilson and 3rd St, sidewalks all the way (crosswalks in route, but watch out for drivers not watching for you). Easy 15 - 20 minute walk, then you can shop, go to Ben & Jerry's after a nice lunch or dinner, see a movie or live music, or stroll next to the Deschutes River.

Hwy 20 between Bend and Sisters: this a very busy, mostly 2-lane highway that has seen a lot of traffic accidents in the last couple of years. Please be very careful and observant driving this road. Do not get in a hurry. We want you, and our community, to be safe.

Other things to note

BLOCKED DATES: If you are looking at specific dates, and see one day "blocked" please ask us about it. We are musicians, and sometimes block dates when we're playing. If you are willing to check in early, or if it's within dates you want, we can unblock that date for you.

DOGS ($10 per pet per night): Small well-behaved dogs are allowed with prior okay from your hosts. Your four-legged family member must be supervised at all times, even outside. Book your pup as an extra guest (please do not just check "pet"), and then we'll discuss acceptance. We're dog lovers, so are pretty easy to persuade :) You will be asked to approve an alteration to your rate if you forget to add your pet (as a 3rd guest) to your booking.

TODDLERS (age 1 - 5) $10 per night: Parents bringing your young, self-mobile children, please be advised that they will be considered an "extra guest" when booking (2 adults + 1 toddler = 3 guests). You will be asked to approve an alteration to your rate if you forget to add your toddler to the booking. Also, please bring extra towels, pillows, bedding, etc. for your little one. We are not child-free, but are not child-proof. Toddlers must be watched at all times. For safety reasons, NO children under age 7 are allowed in the hot tub. If you need a babysitter for your little one while you're staying at the Little House, call "BABYSITTERS ON CALL" at . They have references.

Deb and Kevin were extremely resourceful and they greatly enhanced our stay. Duck Hollow was awesome! It was private, the amenities were great, it was centrally located to everything in Bend, and it just felt like home for the entirety of our visit. We can't thank them enough for everything they did for us and for how great they made our experience staying at the Little House.

Debby and Kevin have an amazing place and were incredibly gracious hosts. The private hot tub, comfy bed and hot shower were perfect after long days at playing at Smith Rock. They truly went above and beyond to make our stay unique, from a 'Happy Birthday' bottle of wine on arrival to lending us their OR State Parks Pass to providing all snacks, drinks and amenities. I couldn't recommend this place more. We'll definitely be back!

We had the most amazing time in Oregon, and our stay at the Little House at Duck Hollow was the perfect place to stay. Debby & Kevin are incredible hosts and their home is so cozy & wonderful. The hot tub under the stars was amazing and we appreciated all of their ideas and suggestions while we were there. Our week visiting our kids in Bend, Oregon was fantastic and these accommodations were perfect. We can't say enough about our experience with The Little House. As we shared when we left, we arrived as guests and left as friends!!!! Thank you!!!!!

Debby And Kevin User ProfileDebby And Kevin is a superhost.

We are easy-going baby boomers. Kevin is involved in environmental and social issues, as well as GIS mapping, and Debby is a retired 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!
