"Perfect place to stay in Bend

What a fantastic place! Really one of the nicest we have ever stayed at. For our 40th anniversary we went on a ski vacation with our three married children and granddaughter. The accommodations were new, spic and span, stylish, tech-forward and altogether charming and perfect. Everything worked well and the owner was incredibly responsive to the slightest question. The location is excellent, walking distance to everywhere you want to go. The house and apartment are well appointed and we wanted for nothing. Can't wait to go stay there again!"

About Charles Burke

In 1977 we were engaged on a ice skating rink in

Bend! We fell in love and then we fell in love with Bend! We vacationed in Central Oregon for many years enjoying all of the great outdoor activities with our children before building our first vacation home in Bend in 1992. We spent all of our family holidays here in Bend for 35 years and still do today!

Charles Burke purchased this house in 2013

Why Charles Burke chose Bend

Don't get burned - our units have Air Conditioning for Bend's hot summer days and nights! Fully equipped gourmet kitchens.

Beautiful property. Lovely patio.

  • 4 of 5

The accommodations were grand except for the early morning sunshine in the bedrooms, that is all but the master which had dark shades. Ok if you're an early bird. The kitchen epuipment was perfect, we thoroughly

enjoyed cooking in, and eating on the patio. A really special property and an owner who was so helpful. I would highly recommend this property. There were a lot of family members in different properties. Great mountain biking, hiking and nice lakes for an outing. I loved floating the river, even the short span of white water. Fun time!

Great Home, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a belated review as we stayed here in May for 4 nights and didn't want to leave! One of the nicest and cleanest homes we have rented through VRBO. We immediately felt at home here. Having the two car garage to park in was great. We rented this property primarily based on the pictures of the patio which caught my attention as they showed a beautiful patio which we enjoyed and sat out on most of the time we were at the property. I loved the landscaping, decor and simplicity of the space. We used the patio fire-pit to gather around in the morning for coffee and at night for wine. The hot tub was a nice way to end the evening. The washer and dryer were nice as well to have the use of. The Layman Cottage was perfect for my In-laws, who enjoyed it and the privacy it provided them and us very much. Our daughter drove over from Eugene to meet us for our mini vacation. Charles was so easy to work with and was even thoughtful enough to leave a UO Duck candy jar filled with green and yellow candies and UO memorabilia for our UO student. The main home was plenty roomy enough for the 5 of us when were inside together waiting out the occasional rain shower. Our daughter used the butcher block island in the beautiful kitchen to do her homework, just like when she is at home. It was amazing how comfortable we all felt here. We did not cook any meals here, but everything you needed to do so was provided along with a BBQ. There were umbrellas for use as well in the closet and beach towels for the hut tub. Lots of small touches. The key pad system made it easier to come and go, no worry about keys. The beds were comfortable and the linens were nice. This is the first VRBO rental that I have not brought my own linens to. Even the towels were nice, smelled clean and were fluffy. I have a great sense of smell and was delighted upon arrival that this home smelled clean and appealing. Our other reason for renting this property was that they do not allow pets to stay here. Nothing against pets, just the owners that allow their pets to make it unpleasant for others that stay after they have stayed.

The location was great! Right around the corner from the Mirror Pond. We could walk to town and we enjoyed walking the neighborhood area every morning over to the river, beautiful area.

We were so comfortable here and would definitely stay here again and hope to do so.

Thank you Charles and Susan for sharing your beautiful home with complete strangers!

Location is everything they say and this amazing home is all that!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful home in a wonderful location. Short walking distance to all great shops and restaurants of downtown Bend. For our baseball weekend it was the perfect location from all the fields and allowed us to enjoy more family time than driving everywhere. The house is newer and well maintained, the layout was perfect for our large family. The suite above the garage was perfect for our grandparents who wanted some quiet time away and we loved the hot tub and fire pit.

We'll definitely be back and a big thank you to the owner who made our arrival and departure a breeze!

We loved our stay here. The house is well designed and appointed, beyond our expectations. Everything was really nice quality, the beds super comfortable, lots of seating around the large dining table, plush towels. The fit and finish of the house itself is excellent. Hot tube, fire pit, great cooking kitchen, steps to the river right downtown - everything you could ask for and more.
