Why Chelsea Wilcox chose Southern Crossing

This absolutelybend home is one of our favorite and most popular, mostly because of the floor plan and location, it's right across the street from Starbucks, the Fred Meyer shopping center, and the Factory Outlets are a short walk.

The Cascade is quiet and very centrally located to everything in Bend and is always our most booked home.

New interior paint and furnishings in late 2016.

What makes this house unique

The layout is great for large groups.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great weekend stay at the cascade house! Felt very clean and organized. Had plenty of towels, blankets, dishes and space for everyone. Plus lots of extras- coffee pots, coffee and liners, shampoo conditioner, spices for cooking! Definitely will be using them again! Plus Chelsea was great super friendly and quick to respond to anything!!

The kitchen is fantastic for large groups! All of the essentials, including two coffee pots, and a crock pot! Chelsea went the extra mile to make sure this house is stocked. The sleeping arrangements were very accommodating, the rooms were all large in size, and the living room area was great for our large group, too! Chelsea was very accommodating to early check in, and she even had treats out for the dogs. Two washer/dryer sets came in very handy, and so did all of the towels and extra blankets. I had a great stay, and would definitely take a large group there again!!

Great location and wonderful for groups!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the house. Both walkable to necessities and bike-able/walkable to downtown, it's a great location. Bedrooms and the whole house were very comfortable and had everything we needed.

Family reunion

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice with a big kitchen, well stocked. It’s walkability is high and we enjoyed the neighborhood walk. Our family found the neighborhood on the noisy side with the windows open for fresh air. The beds were comfortable, but the living room was a bit small for ten of us. The tv is on the small side, as well as the backyard. The deck was large with two tables but with a small child along there was no grass in the backyard to play on. The hot tub was replaced the day before so the water didn’t heat up for us to use. The master bedroom was nice with the only other tv, but the toilet didn’t work properly. Overall we had a nice visit.

Solid Rental

  • 4 of 5

Pros: The property is very spacious with plenty of sleeping opportunities, and quite nice inside. Most appliances are available (though the blender didn't work), and the kitchen/living room space is a great place to socialize. The neighborhood is really quiet and everyone we came across was friendly. Parking was adequate for 4 cars, which was great. Also, getting to and from this property is easy for exploring Bend, as nothing is ever really that far away or hard to access. If you like thrift stores, the Goodwill nearby is awesoooome!

Cons: The hot tub. Unfortunately, all of the other reviews that mentioned the hot tub ended up being correct. With 1 or 2 people in the hot tub at first, it worked, but as soon as the water crested the control panel with the addition of 2 more people, the GFCI tripped and could not be coaxed into resetting. Every time it was reset, it immediately tripped again. I assume this is because water got into the control panel, which was pretty beat up and not sealed anymore, but regardless, it is definitely an issue that can and should be resolved to make the posting more reliable.

General instructions were also hard to follow and need to be updated, as different papers in the house say different things about the same subjects, making checkout somewhat ambiguous. The cleaning fee, if paid, I think should cover all the cleaning, but it was hard to discern whether or not that was the case. This caused a little bit of undue stress on checkout morning as we rushed to fulfill cleaning tasks to not be charged extra, and could definitely be resolved with a little more clarity of instruction.

Finally, and not a big deal at all, but the front storm door didn't have screws in the top hinge going into the jamb, so it banged against the jamb every time it closed. Should be a quick fix, but not as pressing as the hot tub.

All in all, a good visit. Not exemplary, not disappointing. Just solid and exactly what we needed - a place to sleep and eat.
