About Wendy McDonald

Bend is a special place. I spent my summers in Central Oregon growing up and worked in recreation here through high school and college. I planned to stay one last summer when I graduated from college ...but I never left! That was 30 years ago! My kids were both born here, and have been fortunate to grow up in Bend. They are both away at college now, but return summers to work in recreation just like their mom.

I love bend for the enthusiastic outdoor life. I spend my free time cycling, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, hiking and ....doing a bit more yoga these days to repair all the fun I have had!

Wendy McDonald purchased this house in 2011

Why Wendy McDonald chose Bend

Location!!! When I saw this newer house for sale in a historic quiet neighborhood, I jumped. Ask any Bendite, this is a desirable location.

Upscale home just a few scenic blocks from restarants, bars and shops.

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 5 business women who chose to share accommodations while in Bend for a weekend seminar. This house exceeded our expectations. It had high end furnishings and finishes - we made a note of the brand of sheets so we can all go home and buy this oh-so-soft bedding for our own homes. The owner was easily reachable by text or phone if we had a question. The neighborhood was quiet and charming. We didn't notice any adverse traffic noise even though the property backs up to Newport Ave, so don't be concerned about that unless you need total silence 24 hours a day. In spite of the drizzling April weather we made use of the nicely laid out back patio area. It was so convenient to leave the cars behind and walk to town for meals, shopping, and happy hour. Now we're spoiled for any future VRBO rentals - this one will be tough to match.

Outstanding house and Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is only about 2 blocks from downtown across a bridge and half a block to the river. The house and furnishings are extremely nice. It was very clean and well maintained. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. It is perfect for a family. We will stay there again.

Great House in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent the week after Christmas in this great house. It is well appointed, well supplied and in an amazing location. We were able to walk to town, despite the cold, and had easy access to the mountain as well. The house fit all of us with comfort and ease. I highly recommend this rental. We will certainly be back.

Thank you

Beautiful Property, CLEAN and Lot of Privacy, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our son and his family spent four days at this beautiful property.

It was very clean and spacious, allowing both family's lots of privacy and space, since the house design places a separate family room on each floor.

Great for two families sharing time together.

The kitchen was high end and the fire place was a great extra feature.

I especially loved the fully stocked laundry room so we didn't have to purchase laundry supplies.

We loved the location, so close to everything and even walking distance to town.

The home owner provided great customer service and was readily available to answer my question.

It was a great get-away.

I would definitely stay at this property again and recommend it to friends.
