My husband and I LOVE Bend and our plan was to retire here and have a vacation rental. Luckily we had the opportunity to do so sooner and jumped on it! We would love to share our experience(s) here in Bend with others in an economical way. We love the outdoors! My husband is an ultra runner and I am a 10 time Ironman finisher. We are constantly outdoors and love every aspect Bend has to offer. We have two daughters (my step-daughters) and two pound puppies which we adore. We are quiet, yet friendly, conscientious types. You could call us "old fashioned" in our values and are a spiritual and faithful family. The best motto I heard at the start of every Ironman: "The only thing you can control is your attitude." We are looking forward to meeting you and making your stay as comfortable and carefree as possible!
