About Theresa Skarsten

Why Theresa Skarsten chose Bend

The westside of Bend is home to the old Shevlin-Hixon and Brooks Scanlon lumber mills. Many families lived and raised their children here. The westside of Bend is now the place to be, live and visit. Beautiful parks and walking trails nearby. Numerous pubs, restaurants, shopping and activities nearby. Bend is a dog and bike friendly town.

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is located on the popular, westside of Bend. It has a beautiful, private back yard. It's within minutes walking distance to beautiful parks, paths along the river and activities. The home itself is very cozy and comfortable. It has a peace and comfort to it that will make you want to come back. You'll love the neighborhood and the location.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We are so glad you open this home to pets. No where else would take our 3 dogs. It is important to have our pets with us, and we thank you for understanding. This was the perfect place to spend Christmas. We would love to come back in the summer and experience Bend in the summertime. Thanks so much!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our little spring break getaway at this rental property. Went hiking every day and had a nice place to come 'home' to. And it was nice to be able to take our dog with us. Would stay here again without hesitation.

Sweet house...too many rules

  • 3 of 5

Prior to our arrival Theresa was super easy to work with and accomodated us when we added an extra day. Once we arrived the house was much nicer than the pictures and the location is fantastic! The backyard appears to be private and the hot tub is a nice addition, although we didn't really use it(more to that later).

We would recommend that Theresa replace the bed in the master, as it is very uncomfortable and the bedding needs a serious update.

Now to the negative...all the snarky signs and the giant book of rules. It is apparent that the owner has had some crappy renters based on her need to have rules for everything. However, as someone who has rented MANY properties over the years I found all the signs to be over the top and made us feel like we were a nuisance rather than an income generating customer. The rules reference the next door complaining neighbor multiple times, which made us uncomfortable even enjoying the backyard. There are also numerous signs about cleaning up after your pet. I think one would be sufficient.

Also in the rule book it is noted that Bob will be stopping by weekly to check on the hot tub. We were not given a specific date and as a renter we should know when a service man is coming. We would recommend having a set day of the week, so the renter knows specifically.

Overall we hope this review is taken as constructive criticism from a responsible couple that would love to rent this house in the future, but we would like to feel welcomed.

Attractive, convenient, oasis right in the heart of Bend

  • 4 of 5

This is a well maintained property close to everything but in a quiet, residential area. Everything was provided and the home and garden is in excellent shape. The home owners are available and willing to work with renters. A nice place to relax and unwind - Bend is an awesome recreational area with tons to do for all ages. The only reason we did not rate it a five is the mattress/bedframe in the main bedroom was not as comfortable as preferred. Otherwise, the accomodations were perfect. The backyard is serene and a wonderful place to eat dinner and sit back...we will return.

Great Outdoor Patio!

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean and had all amenities. Just a quick bike ride from Deschutes River area. The back patio is a nice, private sanctuary. Would definitely stay there again.
