About Theresa Skarsten

Theresa and Bob Skarsten are true Bendites. Theresa was born and raised in Bend and Bob moved here from California in 1976.

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.

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.

A wonderful inviting get away.

  • 5 of 5

This place is always clean and very welcoming. There had been some updates since the last time we stayed there that were awesome. This is my favorite home away from home. My favorite is the covered patio that we had our morning coffee on to the peaceful garden that was welcoming spring. The hot tub was a great way to wind the day down. We will be back again. Thanks for sharing your house with us and being pet friendly.

Was a great little place with a fantastic backyard and patio.

  • 5 of 5

Owners were very kind, checking in on our arrival day as it had been very windy with outages all over town. Very close to many things in town. A nice hot tub and fire "pit". Also had a BBQ which was nice. Just don't forget your condiments. Great place, location, and owners. Would recommend this house to others.

Lovely home - comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5

I spent 4 nights at Bob & Theresa's cottage and enjoyed every minute. The home gives you a comfortable feeling the minute you walk in and provides all the services listed in their ad. They are available to assist you with problems and pleasant to work with - I had to call Bob to find the toaster and he was more than helpful. Of course, the toaster was right where he said it was, cleverly hidden in plain sight. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, which was important to me, along with being able to bring my 70-lb. dog. In my opinion, both the home and the owners get high marks. Thank you.
