We just bought this house in August 2013. We are so happy to be back in Bend, at least part-time. We lived there full time for 13 years in the 80's and 90's and are now trying to move back permanently. The Bungalow is our first step in this direction. John is a retired Oceanographer and Sally works in international forestry (see (website hidden) if interested). This year we traveled to Provence, France for a colleague's wedding, where we stayed in a lovely Airbnb home. Sally went to Buea, Cameroon and Oaxaca, Mexico for her work. In 2015 we hope to come back to Bend more, as well as travel to Peru in April (for work, hoping John will come along!).
The home in Bend is a block from our daughter who will help us manage the property. We live in Lyons, Colorado for now, where we hike, mountain bike, telemark ski and road bike, among many other hobbies. We raised our daughter In Bend, so have tons to resources to offer a renter, from restaurants to hikes to great galleries. We are invested in the community there, are proud of how it has managed growth, transportation and general quality of life.
