About Lara Sernoffsky

My name is Lara and I am an avid outdoor enthusiast. Hiking, Swimming, Skiing, Rafting and Roller Derby are among my favorite Central Oregon activities. Hence why I choose Bend, Oregon as a great retreat. The weather here is fantastic with no shortage of sunshine or outdoors. Being an Oregon native, I am very familiar with the area and a great resource for what to do and where to go, just ask!

My dog is a great travel companions and I love to take him with me where ever I go. I feel that dogs are a part of my family and nothing is better than being welcomed with dogs when I travel and welcome your pets at my condo!

What nice accommodations! Our visit was perfect. The location is near enough to everything that we wanted to do in Bend and very easy too find when arriving the first times. We would definitely stay here again and recommend the Desert Dweller to friends!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The condo had everything we needed and more. It was very comfortable and quiet. The only thing I would suggest is better lighting for applying make up. Other than that no complaints. It was a great location for visiting our son and enjoying Bend. It is absolutely beautiful country.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your great condo.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay! Super clean, fully stocked, with all the comforts of home. We were very comfortable here, and the owner is available to help, but not hovering nearby. The pictures show the condo accurately! We are so happy to have found this condo in Bend, and we will definitely be back.

Great Value

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 10 days at this rental and had a very comfortable stay. It was clean and well equipped with anything one would need during their stay, especially the kitchen if you want to stay in and cook. Also extra towels and a hair dryer (yea) Centrally located to grocery, pharmacy, Costco, downtown and the Old Mill. Ponderosa Park, a great place to walk is only a block away. Spoke to owner several times and she was a pleasure to deal with. Would recommend this property especially for a family who needs the extra space.

Great condo!! Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter and I stayed at the darling Bend condo for one week. It had everything we could possibly need and then some. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook different kinds of meals, and we did! Lara also had enough paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, and dish soap to get us through a few days. It was nice not to have to run to the store immediately! The condo was also very, very clean! The hair dryer works really well and the water in the shower is hot and fast! This condo was very convenient to everything in town. We had a fun week in Bend and at Lara's condo! Thanks, Lara!

Very comfortable, pleasant.and efficient.

  • 5 of 5

Everything one might need to be comfortable, while away from home, was provided. Beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of blankets, towels, etc. Condo is not downtown and one must drive to most areas of interest, still, I would stay again. Lara was accommodating, informative, and easy to work with. Good value, good comfort, and a very good time.
