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. September is almost full, plus October and December are starting to book). Book now for your next 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.
Complimentary bottle of wine included, along with juice, oatmeal and snack bars.
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 very good, little Salvadoran cafe, Esta Bien) 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.

We are environmentally conscious. Conservation, composting, and recycling are part of the experience.
Debby and Kevin were very gracious hosts. They gave us a tour of our room and explained in detail the facicities and use of the hot tub.
We had so much fun at our stay at Duck hollow! Kev and Deb were so generous and lending us their little home for our anniversary. So quaint and personal we can't wait to go back next year!
We had a lovely time staying in the Little House. Deb and Kevin were excellent hosts and gave us a warm welcome when we arrived. In particular we loved how they gave us a listed of suggested activities (including providing additional suggestions once they got to know us a bit better), had two ice cold beer mugs and beers waiting for us, and had the place spotless when we arrived. The Little House provides lots of privacy and is the perfect spot for a Bend adventure. I'd recommend it to anyone looking to be close to the heart of Bend and who wants to meet two wonderful people.
The Little House at Duck Hollow is an amazing place to stay in Bend! It is pretty close to the downtown area and very comfortable. The AC worked well, and we really appreciated it since it was so hot. I'm sure the hot tub would have been great but wasn't really an option since it was 100 degrees everyday. We did borrow some inner tubes to float down the river, which was a lot of fun. Debby and Kevin are great and were awesome hosts!
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!
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!
