Sorry to hear about your son.
Thank you for your comments, you have a good point Annie,
We do have a gas fire place and when turned on, gas fire places do get very hot.
If potential vacationers have concerns with their children (or anyone for that matter) not being being able to keep from touching the hot appliance, we recommend they keep the appliance off. This is posted in the entry to the condo.
I hope, other than this experience, that you enjoyed your stay in Bend.
