“We swapped with Kevin and Linda for December of 2014 and had an overwhelmingly positive experience. Their home is lovely and couldn't be located any better for walks in the riverside park, downtown strolls and skiing on Mt. Bachelor. Everything was tidy, in working order and clearly explained. They are experienced house swappers and made us feel comfortable and relaxed. I cannot recommend their lovely home highly enough. Mike and Sam”
Where is it?
Amazing location, right off the park which has a central river. (We kayak by walking across the street.) Two blocks from a downtown historic area with lots of restaurants, art galaries, breweries, and shops. About a 1/2 mile to the bus that takes you up to the mountain for skiing. 1/2 mile from Bend's new whitewater park and ice skating rink. The house is in the center of the historic district with terrific cycling paths that can get you anywhere you want to go.
Twenty six golf courses in are area. An hour to Smith Rock Park. Three hours from Portland. And about 1 1/2 hours to Crater Lake. Skiing is open until May 20th. (Spring skiing is awesome!) Whole area is famous for sports; golfing, mountain biking, fishing, cycling, hiking, kayaking, rafting, golf, skiing, nordic skiing, rock climbing, etc. If you like the outdoors, Bend is your town.
Weather is typically dry because this is a high desert. If you head west of us, you run into the mountains with lakes, waterfalls (we have two major waterfalls 20 minutes away), and endless trails. If you head east, you run into high desert with amazing old juniper trees. Endless outdoor options.
Because our town survives on tourism as a major industry we have loads of festivals, concerts, great restaurants, sports events, shopping and a nice museum.
