About This Listing
Our guests consistently say "it's like coming home" when staying at the Little House. Quiet, relaxing, clean and comfortable, the Little House (with a sparkling clean hot tub) is your private sanctuary close to everything in Bend!
We're booked through August (wow, thanks)! We hope you'll come to Bend and visit the Little House, starting in September (now half full & October and December are starting to book). Also, as you go through our photos, you can see how gorgeous it can get in the summer. Book now for next year's visit to Bend, because we fill up fast!
We so 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. 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 Little House at Duck Hollow is a fully-furnished, self-catering guest house located near the heart of Bend, Oregon. Your accommodations (almost 600 sq. ft) include a private entrance and 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 spacious 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 enclave in an edgy, diverse 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 away. Depending on your season of choice, the Little House is also the perfect place to relax after climbing, running, hiking, biking, fishing, birding, or whatever..... :)
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.
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 in the main house for guests who stay at least 4 nights.
Duck Hollow is a proud contributor of Transient Room Tax, supporting regional tourism.
Guests have private access to the Little House, and the hosts do not use the deck, courtyard or hot tub (other than for maintenance, sweeping the patio, or feeding the birds) while guests are at the LH.
Interaction with Guests
We love to meet our guests upon arrival to make sure they will be comfortable. We are available for questions or help, but we do not hover. We live next door to the Little House, but try hard to never intrude on our guests' privacy.
Our neighborhood is eclectic and diverse, centrally located, and just minutes from downtown and all major roadways. We have a great brewery (Crux), along with MANY restaurants, (including a new, very good, little Salvadoran cafe) within walking distance.
Taxis are abundant and affordable, and highly recommended if you're planning a night on the town :) (website hidden) has electric bike rentals, plus a new pedicab service. Check out Hutch's Bicycles (a 10 minute walk north from the Little House) for regular bike rentals.
Other Things to Note
Dogs ($10 per night): Small, well-behaved dogs are allowed with prior okay from your hosts, and must be supervised at all times. When your pup is accepted, your booking will be altered to show your 4-legged friend as an extra guest.
Toddlers ($10 per night): Parents bringing your young children, please be advised that they will be considered an "extra person" when booking. Also, please bring extra towels, pillows, bedding, etc. for your little ones. For safety and sanitary reasons, NO children under age 5 are allowed in the hot tub.
Respect our neighbors, respect our stuff.
Smoking is allowed outside only.
Please be judicious with use of wine, oils and lotions around the bedding.
Please let us know if you will be having guests, just so we know who we're sharing space with :)
We are environmentally conscious. Conservation, composting, and recycling are part of the experience.
Great place. Hosts really did everything they could to make us welcome. They and missed that there were three of us, expecting two, but that didn't bother them a bit and we were outfitted for three within a few minutes. They gave us some very good restaurant recommendations too. The bedroom was dark and quiet and the bed was comfortable. We would have loved to use the hot tub, but as it was crazy hot anyway, didn't get a chance. Totally would stay there again.
Deb and Kev are excellent hosts. They provided a thorough orientation on everything and were most cordial. This rental is comfortable and cozy. Having a chair besides the dining chairs in the kitchen would help, The hot tub hit the spot. It is close to everything in Bend and very safe and accessible.
Great location, hosts and stay! We will definitely be back! Had a great time!
This place was amazing. Debby and Kevin were the best guests we have ever experienced with AirBNB. They greeted us and showed us everything about the house when met. The house was super cute and very clean. The hot tub and courtyard area was very private and neat. Close to the old mill district (we were able to walk) and plenty of parking for two cars. We will definitely stay with them again if we come to Bend.
Good location with really nice appointments. We really enjoyed our time at Duck Hollow. It was quiet, clean and relaxing. The full kitchen was great and included everything you could need. It serves as a great home base for e plotting the city. We rented bikes which was an excellent and fun way to see a lot of what Bend has to offer. We will be back!
Debby and Kevin were so helpful.. They treated us like family! They really take pride in their property. It is extremely clean and organized. We have stayed in several airbnb properties and this is our favorite. The hot tub is awesome and like everything super clean. I think for two people this site is perfect. Come to Bend and definitely stay at Duck Hollow!
Absolutely everything was perfect, they thought of everything and provided it without even asking. Deb even made us banana nut bread that was sooooo good. and there was a bottle of wine waiting for me upon arrival...love these two and their hidden paradise!
About the Host, Debby And Kevin
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!
