Interaction with Guests
Our interaction with guests is as much or as little as they desire.
I love being close to trails and the open space in which we live but yet we have neighbors and are minutes from all the action.

We had planned some spring skiing on Mt. Bachelor and found this marvelous spot. It was perfect for our needs; very comfortable and convenient, both to the Mountain and to Bend. Lura and Bryan were excellent hosts and the amenities provided were perfect for our needs. As hosts they exhibited the perfect balance, being both attentive and non-intrusive. The home was modern, elegant and practical. We intend to book this locatin for a return visit next ski season. The dog Roman and the cat added to our enjoyment by being well behaved and entertaining. This spot is one of those AirBnB nuggets you save and return to.
My stay in Bend was a relaxing retreat thanks to Lura's hospitality and warm home. She was sure to introduce herself as soon as she got home, show me around, and suggest things to do. She was very communicative via the Airbnb app and available for any questions I had. At one point, the internet wasn't working, and she attended to the issue immediately. At another point, I mentioned I was headed out for a hike at a nearby state park and she offered her yearly parking pass so that I wouldn't have to pay the parking fee.
Lura was the perfect blend of helpful hospitality, and reserved privacy. I felt like I had the home to myself! And on that note, her home is lovely and unique. It's quietly located on a private drive with stunning views of the Central Oregon high desert. You'll have your own garage with a private entrance to your lodgings. It was truly a relaxing experience in a very clean, well-kept home. I looked forward to coming back to that comfy bed at the end of my days exploring Greater Bend.
Lura was warm and welcoming! The house was beautifully appointed, with everything you might need and more. Coffee, fresh fruit, cream, snacks, plush towels, toiletries, etc. She ensured that only one of the rooms is booked at the same time to provide privacy. It was like staying at a spa. Amazing! I will most definitely be back if I'm ever in Bend again.
My boyfriend and I spent two nights in Lura's beautiful home in Bend. Instead of just having a relaxing weekend, we had a wonderful experience. I could sense all of the thought put into the making and decorating of their house, from the original-themed rooms to the slogans on the wall. The view was amazing, and the porch swing quickly became my favorite part. The room we stayed in is one I'll never forget and will likely pattern my kids' room from. The bed was very comfy and I honestly found it a struggle to leave it each day. The jetted tub was heaven. Lura was THE perfect host! I cannot stress this enough! She was thoughtful and just very caring. She went out of her way to make us feel at home, even suggesting a movie yo watch. She was such a delight to be with. You NEED to stay in this house. It's not just an airbnb. It's an experience.
Our stay was fabulous and easy with Lura. Her place is warm and inviting...we woke up to sumptuous High Desert views in the morning and sunk into bed after lovely sunsets. My son and I felt welcomed and at ease, coming and going at our leisure in our private sanctuary on the west side.
Lura was an absolutely outstanding host! She was in contact with us immediately with any question or information needed. She greeted us upon arrival and showed us everything we would need for a wonderful stay. Here attention to detail was exemplary. A refrigerator, microwave, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, fresh fruit and delicious chocolates awaited us. Toiletries and hair/skin products even took into account those who may have aversions or allergies to perfumes in their products.
Thank you, Lura, for an outstanding experience in Bend! I will look forward to staying with you next time I visit Bend.
This was an amazing place to stay! From the moment we walked in the door, we knew we had found a special place. Bryan was very warm and welcoming. We felt like part of the family. The space was fantastic. Our area was extremely clean and well decorated. There are amazing views of the mountains. Their neighborhood has a very relaxed feel which is just what we wanted for our trip. Not enough good things can be said about Lura & Bryan's home. 5 stars. Stay here! You won't regret it!
