The space

Bendabout Inn

Bendabout is named for the roundabouts in Bend, it doesn't take long to appreciate and love them! The space is a beautiful private bedroom featuring a plush king bed in a newly constructed 2 bedroom apartment suite. The suite is built onto the side of a historic 1930 house that originally served as a grocery store to Bend's mill workers in the 30's and 40's. The room has it's own private ensuite bathroom with shower, walk-in closet and a shared kitchenette space. The second bedroom is across the common kitchen and is also available to rent if you have a larger party or family. (Bendabout Too or to rent the whole apartment Bendabout)

In 2015, an addition was added onto my home to make a perfect vacation rental for all the interesting people that visit Bend. There are two rooms, Bendabout Inn and Bendabout Too. The common room has a kitchenette with a sink, refrigerator, microwave, hot plate, coffee pot, toaster oven, toaster and more. The patio has it's own table, chairs and barbeque. You are also welcome to enjoy my patio as well.

I've lived in my house since 1999 and have enjoyed turning it into the home of my dreams. It is located in a beautiful neighborhood overlooking the Deschutes river and Old Mill District. It is a short walk down the hill to all the river activities, dining, nightlife, entertainment, parks and trails. Also, a very short 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk to downtown Bend. It also offers easy access to the Parkway (Hwy 97) and the Southern Bridge, the gateway to the Cascade Lakes Hwy and Mt. Bachelor.

Enjoy your morning coffee on the private patio or relax on the shared deck with a glass of wine or one of Bend's famous craft brews. Barbeque also available for those beautiful summer evenings!

I share my home with Piper, a miniature Australian labradoodle. Piper loves people and will greet you enthusiastically.

Guest access

Private locked bedroom, kitchenette area, private patio area (shared with other apartment guests), shared back yard/deck.

Interaction with guests

I love meeting and talking with my guests, but I also fully respect their privacy. I will be as available and have as much or as little interaction as you would like.

Other things to note

Bendabout for the outdoors person - starts with a walk to the Old Mill where you can rent a bike, kayak, canoe or paddle board. Visit an awesome fly fishing shop or plan a tour of Bend on an electric bike or Segway. Just a one minute drive to get on the road to Mt. Bachelor.

Bendabout for the concert-goer and foodie - again start with a walk down to the Old Mill District. Restaurants, art galleries and the Les Schwab amphitheater are all only a few minutes away.

This is a great airbnb indeed And Even though we didn't have the whole place to ourselves it didnt matter in the slightest. Check in was smooth and easy, and the room itself with ensuite were spotless. It's in a fantastic location to walk to the old mill district and riverbend park, and we had a fantastic time in Bend as a result. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again!

Superb location, right above Old Mill and the river. Stairs down the hill take you right to the Old Mill area and the river. Marilyn was a wealth of info on hikes and excursions. this is a nice spot to work from. Only drawback is a shared kitchen, but we made it work.

Response from Marilyn:
HI Pat, it was fun visiting with you and Libby. The description is pretty clear that the kitchen is shared, I'm sorry that you missed that. The other option is to rent the whole apartment. Marilyn

I'm Marilyn, a quilt shop owner and lover of Bend, Central Oregon and everything it has to offer. I've been in Bend for 24 years a transplant from British Colombia and Colorado. My business, QuiltWorks, now in it's 7th year is right in the heart of Bend across the street from Pilot Butte Drive In.

I like to find a weekend getaway once in a while to share with a friend and sew, eat, laugh and just connect.
