Why Rick and Denise Karvasales chose Bend

It is located in Bend's Historic district across the street from Drake Park at Mirror Pond. We love to walk to town! It takes about 2 minutes. Time slows down in this 1920's charmer. The lush grounds in the summer are very inviting. The hot tub is great.

Perfect in many ways!

  • 5 of 5
Our Roseville Cycling Club planned a trip to Bend and 3 couples decided to rent this house. What a wise decision! Our first night we walked to Drake Park for Music & Munch - a perfect night with good food & music. The house is roomy enough for the 6 of us to spread out - we all had our own bedroom & bathroom and the living space was huge! The tree-shaded front yard was the perfect place to host our Cycling Club for a cocktail hour! Need I say that 25 people were very jealous of our home away from home! Walking downtown for dinner (Zydeco or Joolz - YUM!) or the Farmer's Market was great. Our stay in Bend was greatly enhanced by our experience at Yesteryear!

Fantastic (with just a couple downsides)

  • 4 of 5
The place was great. The location was perfect. Very convenient to the little downtown (walking distance). Also - just a block from the park.
Just 3 complaints however:
First, a major selling point to us was the hot tub given the time of year we were going to be there - it was not until we arrived that we realized the hot tub was not in working condition. It would have been nice to be made aware of the issue prior to our arrival - for nothing more than courtesy.
Second, toilet paper (or lack there of). we had one complete roll for the 5 of us for 3 nights. No big thing - we bought some at the store - but this was just a little thing that i would expect to not have to deal with at a vacation rental.
Last, there were some small cleaning issues that would have been nice to not have to deal with (such as coffee maker was packed full of used grounds from the previous guests).
All of these complaints are minor - but they did begin to add up.
With all that said - the place was quite wonderful!

Owner's Response: Hi Anna,
Thank you for such a good review! I am happy you enjoyed the home. I do wish you had called me! I would have been able to help you immediately. For instance, I tried calling you to let you know that the house was ready at 2 and you wouldn't have to wait til 4pm to check in. At the same time, I was going to tell you that the hot tub had been drained and cleaned and filled with fresh water...but that it hot enough til late that night or early morning. You see guests left that morning and in order for you to have a wonderful hot tub... The number I called gave me an "I am sorry this caller is unavailable at this time.." message.
As for the toilet paper, if you called, I could have guided you to the two storage rooms that are loaded with everything including tp. As for the coffee filter left in, I am sorry, that was not effiecient nor polite. I have had a talk with housekeeping that these details are important to make someone feel like they are being taken care of. Please accept my apology for that. I always ask our guests, on the phone and on our Welcome Sheet, to please call for any reason..that we may ensure you needs are met. I really mean that. Thank you again for your lovely review. Cheers, Denise and Rick

Easy, Amazing option for a great Bend vacation

  • 5 of 5
This house is beautiful, well-kept, convenient, and the perfect place to relax. The hot tub is large, and there are great extra amenities (love the fire pit!). It's spacious and clean and super easy to get to and from all the sites in the area. Owners are great to work with and the cleaning/checkout process is a snap.

Owner's Response: Oh Jason, thank you so much for the kind words. We are so happy to share this home with those who appreciate it as we do!
Your children are so well mannered and sweet. I hope they enjoyed their bike rides and maybe the bakery Baked on Columbia around the corner! Yum! Did you make somemores at the firepit? And thank you very very much for checking the ashes and watering down after use! I bet you were a very good boy scout with your care, safety and great manners :) Hope to share our home with you and yours again. Cheers, denise and rick

Such a wonderful house!!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent the days before and New Year's Eve at the house! 5 Adults and a tiny dog. We had plenty of room and enough TVs to satisfy all. The house is soooo charming and clean! We will be coming back for sure! Only thing that would have made the stay better....would have been snow! Oh well....next time!!!!!

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5
This charming vintage home has been lovingly restored. The 2-story living room is impressive and the bedrooms and baths that line the balcony overlooking it are large and airy.There is a spacious master bedroom on the main level. The large formal dining room and beautiful, well-equipped kitchen would make this home a fine choice for a group. There are large flat-screen TVs everywhere; Netflix was available, but no cable or dish programming. The weather wasn't good on this trip, so we could not enjoy the huge hot tub or the fire pit outside, but they looked very nice.

In my opinion, this would have been a 5-star home except for a few, admittedly fairly minor, complaints. I am not a fan of the main floor bathroom. I realize that renovating bathrooms in vintage homes can be problematic but this one is very dark, particularly in the shower area (which is extremely small). A shelf is needed around the sink to put stuff on. There are no hooks or other holders for robes, etc. In the shower there is nowhere at all to put soap or shampoo. The upstairs bath for 2 of the bedrooms has only a tub, no shower. The living room is also quite dark and is not as comfortable as it could be. I longed for overstuffed chairs where I could curl up with a side table for my coffee and a lamp for reading. And I've got to say, the basement TV viewing area is kind of creepy. As stated, these are not major issues, but really more suggestions for making a stay at Yesteryear even better. Overall, it is a beautiful home and it was a privilege to stay here.

One final comment: The description and photos of Yesteryear imply that it is directly across the street from Drake Park and Mirror Pond. It is not--it is about a block or two away and does not actually offer even a glimpse of the park. Instead, our front windows offered a view of the porta-potty parked in front of the house by a road crew that was working on the street.

Fantastic Location, Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5
The house was amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was a perfect location, walking distance to downtown, Drake Park, and after floating the river we easily walked home. I stayed with a large group and the house was spacious enough and comfortable for everyone. We especially appreciated the amenities such as a hot tub, outside seating, and large kitchen. Denise and Rick were excellent to work with! I would definitely recommend this home to others.
