About Tracy Lucente

After living in Chicago and pursing our careers for many years, we chose to move to Central Oregon for all of the outdoor activities right out our door, and for a more peaceful lifestyle. We love being in Central Oregon at the Sweetums Ranch and enjoy sharing this amazing place with our guests.

Tracy & Bill

Tracy Lucente purchased this house in 2008

Why Tracy Lucente chose Bend

We love the location of Sweetums Ranch with quick access to everything, yet the privacy and wonderful views, and in spring, summer, and early fall a river even runs through it!

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the peaceful and beautiful setting of the Sweetums Ranch, play tennis, walk or bike right from the property, and relax around the gorgeous swimming pool with mountain views. All this, yet just minutes from downtown Bend (restaurants, brewpubs, shopping), and all the outdoor activities (skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, river rafting, SUP, kayaking, rock climbing, horseback riding, etc) Central Oregon has to offer. A perfect location for your vacation!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We felt like home. The beds were super comfy, décor was simple yet very nice and not overwhelmingly "busy", the kitchen was very user friendly.



We really enjoyed our stay here. Totally loved the Jacuzzi with this beautiful winter beauty. Our kids enjoyed your dogs, chickens & horses.



Thank you for the delicious breakfast and for meeting our expectations. We will definitely come back!

Perfectly relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

With incredible views of the surrounding mountains and lovely, comfortable amenities, Sweetums Ranch was the perfect spot for a long weekend. The hosts were super friendly and helpful, the hot tub was hot and steamy and the location between Sisters and Bend was ideal for all our exploring and hiking. We'll go back for sure!

QUIET HAVEN

  • 5 of 5

Sweetums Ranch was a wonderfully quiet and private getaway for my husband and me on our recent trip to Central Oregon. Tracy provided fresh farm eggs, orange juice and strawberries with homemade bread our first morning which was such a welcome touch! The guest house was immaculately clean, comfortable and beautifully situated. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to the area.

Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to stay.

The ranch is fantastic - the best pool ever (according to our children), a hot tub, a hammock by a gentle stream, a tennis court and a beautiful holiday home. Thanks to Tracy and Bill for being such kind hosts.

There is so much to explore nearby that we could have happily spent longer here. The restaurants and shops of Bend and Sisters are wonderful. We enjoyed trips to Mount Bachelor, the Newberry Volcanic Monument, Tumalo Falls, the Dee Wright Observatory, Smith Rock and the Museum of the High Desert.

Recommended without reservation.

Beautiful, relaxing get away

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at the Sweetums Ranch guest house for 4 nights in July. The guest house is everything we hoped for when we booked it. A quiet, out of the way location, but not too far from many activities. Bill and Tracy are wonderful hosts! We arrived to find a comfortable home with lots of room for our family. Tracy left us fresh eggs from their chickens, strawberries and cream, yogurt, orange juice and home baked bread for our first morning breakfast. We enjoyed refreshing swims in their gorgeous salt water pool and soaks in the hot tub as we watched the sunset. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and is probably the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! Need to find out what kind it is! Bill and Tracy let our girls help feed the horses and the chickens and their labradoodles are so cute and friendly. Every evening we enjoyed listening to the neighbor cows mooing. It was so peaceful and quiet at night. The home is at the end of a 3/4 mile dirt road, so it is very private. The home has a window AC unit, but because of Bend's cool nights, we were able to cool the house down overnight, then close it up in the morning and it stayed cool all day. We never even turned it on. They have a TV too with satellite, but we never watched it and opted to enjoy some of the games they provide in the home. Our girls loved laying in the hammock and reading a book by the small canal that runs through the property. While we were there we took day trips to Bend, Mt. Bachelor, the Lava River Tube, and Smith Rock. This is a great place for a quiet relaxing vacation. We had a 5-star experience and will book with them next time we are in the Bend area. I can't say enough good things about our experience.

Our Family Trip to Bend

  • 5 of 5

Very cute & homey feel to this house. My kids loved it and said they wish our home was like this rental!! The owners are very welcoming and friendly. The house was very clean & user friendly. The kitchen is a bit small, but we ate away from the home most meals. Will defiantly book here again!!

A Sweetums Christmas

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, with our two children, spent 10 wonderful days at Sweetums Ranch. Tracy and Bill thoughtfully put up a Christmas tree, with decorations, which was a welcome surprise! The home (during our stay, that's what it felt like) was everything the owners and other reviewers said it would be. I'll limit my review to those details that may not have been covered, and that made Sweetums Ranch guest house one of the best places we've ever vacationed!

Sweetums Ranch has it's own ambassadors for fun - two huge, super-sweet golden Labradoodles! Each morning, they'd bound over to the front porch and dance around until one of us came out and tossed a few pinecones for them to fetch. A few mornings, Tracy invited the children to accompany her to the chicken coop to meet the hens and collect eggs. There were several different breeds, and their eggs came in a rainbow of colors! Tracy also invited us to meet some of the horses, and the children had a great time helping feed them.

If you're travelling with kids, then you'll understand why I was so excited to find a full-sized front loading washer and dryer in the second bathroom! Honestly, every rental place should have this amenity.

The closets are huge, with built-in shelves and ample space for hanging clothes.

There's an enclosed, tiled porch that accesses the master suite that was perfect for stowing luggage, coats, and boots. We used it like a mudroom - it was a nice place to "strip" the kids and hustle them straight to the shower on those days they were mucky from having fun, and not worry about tracking dirt through the rest of the house.

The kitchenette is very compact, but has everything needed to fix a proper meal, and the Weber gas grill on the patio cooks great. Be sure to skip a night cooking in, and treat yourselves to delicious pizza at Pisano's, just 5 minutes away. Do not miss this!

My family just loved the wood-fired heating stove that kept us so toasty warm, but it would have made me a nervous wreck if my children had been toddlers. The stove's surface gets HOT.

Both bathrooms are spacious and well-appointed with fluffy towels, soft robes, organic shampoos and hand soaps, but may not be accessible for someone with mobility issues. The corner shower in the master is "cozy", and the second bath has a shower-tub combo.

I just love the beds! The mattresses are very firm, just as I like, the pillows fluffy, and the sheets high thread-count cotton.

I would stay at Sweetums Ranch again!
