Overview

Bend House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The Pine Forest Retreat is centrally located in the heart of beautiful Bend, Oregon. One block from the Pilot Butte hiking trail, 5 minutes from the Old Mill District and downtown Bend, this home is 25 minutes from Mt. Bachelor and the high lakes. Vacationers can find many activities in Bend including hiking, biking, skiing, rafting, kayaking, fly fishing and shopping. Downtown Bend and the Old Mill District have a variety of antique stores, restaurants, and retail shopping. There is nothing more enjoyable than a stroll around the Mirror Pond at any time of the day! Visit historic Pine Tavern for lunch or dinner and enjoy the outdoor patio dining in the summer.

The home is beautifully but practically decorated in a cabin-like décor. This non-smoking home is designed to handle large families or groups of friends and is kid-friendly. It is located on ½ acre where local deer and squirrels are common sights. The large, fenced, private backyard features a patio and gas barbecue. Dine out on the patio and enjoy the quiet of the Larkspur neighborhood.

The master bedroom has a king bed, armoire with a flat screen TV; the hunting bedroom features a queen bed; the bear bedroom has a queen bed, with a crib for families with an infant or toddler. The pine tree bedroom features a bunk bed and trundle bed to accommodate four people--we recently added a TV and DVD for kids to have a separate area adjacent to the dining room. The living room has comfortable seating for all, a 42” flat screen TV, and a gas fireplace surrounded by local lava rock. The dining table can seat up to 10 people. Wi-Fi is provided free of charge for vacationers who need Internet access. Each bathroom has a blow dryer.

About Donna Bergmen

Clark and I enjoy sharing our home with visitors to Bend. We strive to keep it comfortable and affordable!

Donna Bergmen purchased this house in 2010

Why Donna Bergmen chose Bend

This home is 3/4 a mile from the home we owned from 1979-83 when we had to leave our beloved Bend for California's Central Valley. For 25 years we have stayed with friends and now we can stay in our own home and share the beauty of Bend with others.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy getting coffee at the Looney Bean downtown and walking around the Mirror Pond and Downtown Bend neighborhoods. In addition, the skiing at Mt Bachelor is great! My husband is an avid golfer, hunter, and fisherman and Bend has all of that to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed your home very much! The location was central to all the family reunion activities. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to prepare meals without any difficulty. Our first evening home the house was warm so we tried out the whole house fan---wow it was amazing how quickly the house reached a very comfortable temperature. Our toddler founds lots of fun toys in the closet and I was able to find a razor and toothpaste in the “Forget Something?” box—that was very helpful! Some in our group were able to work because the WIFI as so strong and I streamed a moving on my computer. The beds are comfortable and the house was very clean. Thanks for sharing your home!

Comfy and baby friendly

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Pine Forest Retreat while we were in town for a wedding. At first there was an issue with towels, however Donna was quick to fix the problem with her local property manager. The living room was especially comfy for visiting with family that came from several locations. We needed a crib for our granddaughter and this was one of few rentals that had one! There was also a closet with many movies and toys, where we actually found some baby toys that our granddaughter enjoyed! The location was close to everything we wanted to do. We love Bend and will be back!

Very enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

The house has plenty of room and feels very comfortable to be in. We particularly enjoyed the size of the yard and the ability to not have to be inside when at the rental. I would definitely stay here again if vacationing in Bend with a larger group of people. (We stayed here with ten comfortably)

The house was fantastic and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We visited Bend for my 30th birthday with my friends. The house was perfect size and had exactly what we needed. We were able to sleep comfortably, cook meals, have dogs outside, and enjoy each other's company. The house is not far from downtown and directions were clear at the home. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
