The Lara house is just blocks from the old town of Bend and Drake park. The house was build at the turn of the century and is perfect in every detail. The living room is cozy with a gas fireplace, comfy couches and wonderful decor. The breakfast is served in the sun room with views of the lovely lawn. We... More

When I stay at a historic house, I don't expect all the comforts of a newly built luxury hotel. Our stay at the Lara House was delightful. We were given keys and an entry code for the front door so that we could come and go as we chose. Breakfast was at a set time and there was an afternoon... More

As others have mentioned, Lara House has a great location right across the street from a lovely riverside park, walking distance to downtown. Our room (Shevlin) was beautifully decorated; the bed was very comfortable, too. If you are staying several nights, you might want to get a room with a bigger closet, but for 1 night, it was no problem... More

The physical setting and location of the Lara House is superb. However, after our second visit we've decided it will be our last. My chief complaint is the thoroughly horrible breakfasts we were served during our second visit, far below what is typical for this price point. Lest you think I am the exception in this view, one morning they... More

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. The room that you selected is our smallest and unforunately due to the layout and age of the house it only offers a small half closet. The rest of the rooms are larger and do have full closets in them. I hope after our housekeeping staff removed your comforter and... More

We were on a two week couples road trip and six of us booked rooms at the Lara house B&B . We fell in love with the quaint and lively town of Bend. The Lara house was perfectly located just a few blocks from the downtown, Drake park, the restaurants and bars. It was the perfect combination of close to... More

Lovely, by not stuffy, decor, perfectly situated for downtown Bend and Drake Park; Knowledgeable innkeeper (white-water rafting, fishing, pub-crawling) and satisfying breakfasts. Free beverages available all day and even has its own free beer happy hour.

Not only is Lara House extremely quiet and comfortable, it is also located within easy walking of everything in downtown. We walked to all our dinners and spent some time in Drake park just across the street. It is an easy drive to several great hiking sites. The room was very comfortable and the house has both front and back... More

My wife and I stayed here while touring Oregon. We came to Bend to see if we might like to live here. So apparently did everyone else who was staying here when we arrived.
