I moved to Bend in 1999 after spending 27 years in Hawaii and growing up in Incline Village, North Lake Tahoe. I love the mountains, lakes and rivers and most anyplace in the great outdoors. I'm familiar with most any outdoor adventure that you'd like to try while in Bend and can recommend hiking trails, kayak lakes and rivers, mountain biking trails, brewpubs to quench your thirst, great restaurants, and most any other activity, whether it be backpacking, local theater or a quiet park to enjoy the sunshine. (I have a canoe and bikes for your use in the summer.)
I have a beautiful, well behaved German Shepherd. She has no territorial, possessive or protective aspects to her. She goes everywhere with me and greets everyone with respect. She comes with references if anyone is concerned.
I'm very easy going. I'm gone during the day when I'm not working, always on the go. I hike, backpack, ski, x-country ski, showshoe and most any other outdoor sport that brings people to this beautiful part of the Northwest.
My house is user friendly. I have a woodstove, which keeps it toasty warm in winter. It also has electric forced air heat and the bedroom has an additional space heater if like your area really warm.
I finally got A/C this summer as most people don't like to be told to go jump in the river if they're too hot. The bedroom and living room both have portable air conditioners to keep things cooled off.
I try to be honest with what I have to offer. I have a clean home in a very convenient area. My home is on a half acre right in town. You can look out the window and see what the weather is in the mountains, watch the mountains turn pink in the morning sunrise and watch the gorgeous sunsets. You can enjoy all that Bend has to offer from my doorstep. Come stay with me!
**Please take note that this is a mountain town, can get extreme snow and weather conditions and the county does not always clear the streets the way we would like in the winter. I keep my driveway clear in the winter but the road to the driveway, even though short, can be difficult with extreme snowfall. Check the weather report prior to travel.
