About the property

1.5 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 3

Tuck away in this studio loft that is just a 5-minute walk from downtown! Bend's finest architects and artists had a hand in creating this inspiring loft for the author, who created several books here. Thus the name "Writer's Retreat.” A couple or small family will adore this bright, cheerful space. The bedroom has blackout shades that keep you in a deep sleep until the alarm rings. The sofa sleeps two smaller forms, or one adult (king size) in a very light room in the a.m. — bring your eye covers. A large collection of reading material is offered for your pleasure, during your stay only, please. You may choose to relax and watch TV w/ DVD player in the better your journal or sketch pad and catch the inspirations your stay here will create!

Reviewer Comments:

I am a cross country skier and ended up due to illness spending most of my time at the house. Great place to be. Wonderful book selection. The only draw back is lighting. The ceiling lights light up the bed room as well as living room, glaring in your face if in bed. If all go to sleep at the same time it is fine. If anyone one stays up later you need to bring a separate light, or take one of the bedroom lights (caution they are very hot) into the living room. If they had some lamps in the living room for alternative lighting that would really help. Aside from the lighting ...a great place to stay.

Our first visit to Bend and stay at the Writer's Retreat. Cute, charming, comfortable is what the Writer's Retreat is all about. Located an easy 5 minute walk from downtown it's a great place to discover Bend, Or. The property management company was very responsive. The only complaint, the bathroom needed some serious cleaning. All in all, I would stay again and give my recommendation for anyone wanting to experience Central Oregon.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great stay at this rental. It was charming and in a great location. Our only complaint is that the process of securing this rental was overkill. There was a lot of paperwork, phone calls, texts, emails back and forth to make sure every document was signed and accounted for. It really became a headache. The people at the rental company were polite and helpful, but the whole process was too much.

Manager responded on 8/2/2016:

Hi Molly:

We very glad you enjoyed the visit.

Sorry the process. There are some items that have to be addressed per the City of Bend & State of Oregon and Owner requests so we do all we are able to keep it simple.

Since you are not checking into any office and literally just walking into the home, we have to do some things in front. We really appreciate your patience and any understanding in the due diligence. Hoping you will return and we ill do all we are able to ease

things always! BDVR
