About Diane Belanger
My three girls- who are now grown- and I discovered Bend in 1998. We love it. I spend as much time as possible in Bend, balanced with my consulting business which is based in San Francisco. One daughter lives in Sisters with her husband, one is a Duck (class of '15), and one is in school at UCLA. We gather in Bend often and hosted a wonderful family wedding in August of '13.
Diane Belanger purchased this house in 2011
Why Diane Belanger chose Bend
We call our Bend home 'The Campbell Cabin'. The minute we saw it we knew it was perfect. The neighborhood is peaceful and friendly and sits on the edge of both Tethrow and Broken Top golf clubs...both are a short walk-and are open for drinks, dinner or golf-even for non-members. I often walk across Century Blvd with my evening cocktail down to the river (a five minute walk) for a little fishing and ride my bike to town for breakfast (I like Sparrow and Strictly Organic). The location is perfect...on the way to Mt. Bachelor and out the front door are endless hikes and fabulous mountain and road biking...no need to drive. The Athletic Club of Bend is across the street and you can buy a day-pass to use this superb facility for about $15.
What makes this house unique
We love this home because it has the feel of both a cabin and a comfortable and casual family home; nothing too fancy or dainty. The minute I arrive, I begin to relax. The four bedrooms include two suites, each with their own bathrooms (one up and one downstairs) and two bedrooms that share a bath (both are upstairs). The big family room is upstairs; we call it the 'Tree House' because it looks out into the trees. The washer-dryer is upstairs as well.The kitchen is just great with a table made by a local craftsman. The house totals about 3,200 square feet. The yard in the back is perfect for lounging or entertaining. It also has both a large gas fire-pit, a small, enclosed wood burning fire pit and Weber charcoal grill. Perfect for a family with children or an extended family since there are two very separate areas to 'hang out'- upstairs and downstairs.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Ben from Los Angeles
We love to ski and are sort of skiing snobs...we love Park City. Our friends invited us to stay with them in Bend to ski at Mt. Bachelor...where is that??? Well, I'm eating my words. Love everything about mt bachelor....single mountain with plenty of challenge for us aging baby boomers. Also, loved the home they chose. It is right on the way to the mountain (about 20 minutes). They call the house the Campbell cabin apparently both because it is on Campbell road and the owner(s) are in love with Joseph Campbell the philosopher. It is big (3,500+ square feet) but feels so cozy. The gas fireplace in the living room almost heats the entire house. The lack of cable TV, which annoyed me at first, turned out to be a blessing because we read and chatted more without the TV blaring. The house does have a TV with a DVD and Roku set-up from which you can access NetFlix and some other specials. Very comfy area to watch, too. Then there was the "secret sauce", Diane, the person the owner works with the owners to manage the house. She explained to us that the owner loves the cabin and provides TLC, via Diane. That TLC comes with the house. Diane offered to do an initial shopping (for a meer $30) for us. When we arrived we were so happy! Nuts, chips and mixers for drinks and beer in the extra refrig in the garage. She insisted we contact her if we needed anything. We did, and Diane babysat for our 3 children on 2 separate occasions; excellent pleasant surprise...we begged Diane to come home with us! See you next year.
