About Margaret L. Wardrope

Margaret, is a graduate of Art from Witworth College in Spokane Washington. She grew up in the Treasure (Boise) valley in southwestern Idaho. The oldest daughter of a potato and onion farmer. Her father was a B17 pilot and flew maximum missions from England to Germany during the war. His airplane "lucky lady" never lost a man. Margaret has a keen sense of decor and is always complemented about the interior design at our Inn in Elkton Oregon on the Umpqua river near what was once one of the earliest outposts of the Hudson Bay Company....Fort Umpqua. It is a wonderful valley with a pristine river and nice people. Margaret is a wonderful singer and we both sing at the local Church in Elkton. Margaret does not know a stranger and she will see to it that you are comfortable. I (Jim) am married to Margaret and we hope to meet you real soon. I grew up in Bend went to High School here and have fished and hunted this area all my life. If you want to fly fish or catch the 30 lb. German Browns in the Deschutes River. I can show you how and where....Fly Fishing the Central Oregon Salmon Fly hatch on either the Deschutes or the Metolius Rivers is a lifetime memory.

There is no better skiing than Mt. Bachelor in the Cascades just 30 minutes from the house. The cross country skiing is awesome. Music in the park and at the Les Schwab Ampha Theatre. This house is central to Bend and close to the Old mill district and only minutes from Sparrow Bakery...the best bakery in Bend. Try their "Ocean" rolls...a buttery croissant dough with a touch of cinnamon twist and sugar crust....wonderful....pick them up between 7 and 9 A.M., or they will be gone.

Margaret L. Wardrope purchased this house in 1990

Why Margaret L. Wardrope chose Bend

This is a comfortable house close to most of Bend. It was built by Pete Wick...A builder of homes in central oregon for many years with the company Marken and Wick. I bought a house from them in 1970 and when Pete's personal house came up for sale I purchased it knowing it would be well built and a quality piece of work.

What makes this house unique

Close to many of Bend unique venues including the Old Mill District and Cinemas, Les Schwabs Ampa-Theatre, Bends best Bakery " Sparrow Bakery"...try their "Ocean Rolls" be there before 9 am or they will be out for the day...Several shopping centers are close to the house and downtown is only minutes away. Mt. Bachelor is a mere 28 minute drive from the house, and we have a dry sauna to warm up in after your day in the Cascades. I have lived in Bend most of my life and can give you tips on things to do and places to go including fishing. . Comfortable area, off the main traffic and quiet neighborhood. Renters will also receive a 3 night stay for the price of 2 at our Inn in Elkton, Oregon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything has been great in the house. One of the most unique places I've ever stayed, that's for sure :)

The downstairs area is very cool on even the hottest summer day and evening. Bend is high altitude and often the few days of hot daytime weather is balanced by very cool nights. The house is well insulated and will retain the cool air into most hot days and evening. I

Clean well cared for house

  • 4 of 5

This house was very clean and worked great for our family of four! The layout is a little funky—one of the bedrooms was down two small flights of stairs without a bathroom and one of the bathrooms was up a half flight of stairs by itself. The main bathroom had been nicely remodeled. The kitchen was old but everything worked well. It was about 5 minutes to drive to downtown Bend and there was a nice playground about a block away. We had a great stay!

Fantastic Home! Cozy and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

You can tell this house has been lived in before.... it just felt like home. When we drove up to the house we found ample parking spaces and access to the house was simple. We walked in to a unique yet comforting layout where the thermostat was set comfortably and the house was ready to occupy. After doing some exploring of the house, our dog was very interested in lying in front of the fireplace. This is where we, including the dog, would sit and relax. The bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen were all very clean and ready to use. There were all the supplies you could ever need in easy to find places. We were 30 minutes from skiing Mt. Bachelor, 5 minutes from downtown, and 5 minutes from any brewery you could imagine. The owners communicated well with us before we arrived and while we were there to ensure everything was up to par. If I ever go back to Bend, I would definitely stay in this house again.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This property is a home away from home. A well supplied kitchen, two ample size living areas, a cozy breakfast nook/eating area, sauna, Jacuzi tub, a gas fireplace for additional heating comfort, and laundry room make this home quite comfortable. The home is clean and tastefully decorated. The quiet neighborhood location we found to be central to all the shopping and dining we needed, with the historic and quaint old town area only minutes away. We recommended this property to anyone who is looking for an easy and relaxing place to stay while vacationing in thie Bend area.
