About This Listing
Clean, comfortable and affordable stay in mid-town Bend. Just minutes from the downtown scene, where you will find good food and lots of beer.
Sleeps two in a queen bed.
Located in the middle of Bend Oregon, my house is a great base for exploring the city and beyond. Whether you'd like to take a hike up Pilot Butte, grab a local beer, take off to see Dillon Falls on the Deschutes River or ski Mt. Bachelor, it feels like you are only minutes away.
I open my home to you for your enjoyment during your stay in Bend. I have three bedrooms for guests. The two bathrooms are shared. The kitchen may be used by guests as well, ready with cookware and basic spices. Just bring your main ingredients to cook your own meals 'at home'. Of course, if you choose to eat out, there are many great choices 5 minutes to downtown. Deschutes Brewery, Silver Moon Brewery, Taj Palace, Brother Johns, or the classic Pine Tavern are all recommended choices.
Also living at the house is a cat named Marley, who is a very good greeter.
I cut custom lapidary sculpture and jewelry. Some of my pieces are found through out the house and they are for sale. I work with quartz primarily, cutting small pieces, hand held and pendants, and also have a collection of quartz lit up in light bases of old growth juniper. I work on pieces most days in my studio. Tours are available, so if you have a raw piece of stone that you've been wanting cut or polished, bring it in and lets see what can happen.
I look forward to meeting you and sharing my little piece of Bend. Cheers, Lee
Lee's description of her was as promised and I felt welcome during the duration of my stay. I was fortunate to have good conversations with other tenants, which made the experience more inviting. It was quite a convenient location and would stay here again. I would recommend this location to anyone visiting the Bend area.
Lee was awesome! I contacted her last minute and she went out of her way to make sure the room was ready for me! The place was great and super close to downtown and the river. I highly recommend staying here. To top it off, I met a great new friend who was AirBnBing the other room.
clean, comfortable, centrally located room in a house with other airbnb-ers. Will stay again the next time I'm in town.
Lee was kind and friendly. She wasn't around most of the time we were here but came to welcome us when we arrived. She wasn't able to answer her messages the day of when we tried to confirm our check in time due to phone issues. However, she quickly prepared our room. It was in a nice quiet area and comfortable. Simple, cozy and no frills. It was nice that we had a key to our own room and that there was an option to have a fire out in the backyard.
Lee was a great host. We needed a place to relax and have a little bit of down time and her place was a very comfortable and welcoming. We enjoyed talking to her and getting to know her too! She recommended that we check out Silver Falls on the way to Portland which we are going to do. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend her place to anyone. The room we stayed in was beautiful and was very fresh feeling and the bed was so comfortable. One of the best nights sleep in our travels.

About the Host, Lee Marie
Hello, My name is Lee.
I am 46 years old, a business owner and a home owner and have lived in Bend for most of my life. I have a daughter, who has just moved into her own apartment here in Bend and a son, who is living in Tacoma and attending college. I have owned this house for the past 8 years and love the location in the middle of Bend. I have been a log home designer for the past 20 years, yet have embraced the change in economy and started up a new lapidary business in 2012. My studio is at my house and is open for tours. If you have a special rock or mineral that you've always wanted turned into a pendant or placed on a pedestal/light base, lets talk! I am also open to teaching workshops, allowing you to cut your own piece.
My interests are many. From creating community and volunteer work. I enjoy the connections made with others. I have been to Burning Man the past three years and feel it is having a larger impact on me, as I open up more to my own potential. I love my house and gardening and making improvements over time. Alot of satisfaction in making my home comfortable and I enjoying sharing it with others.
Looking forward to meeting you all. Cheers! Lee Marie Steckler
