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. Everyone had bought a house, was looking for a house, or was having work done on a house they had bought. The rooms were lovely as... More

My husband and I just spent 3 nights at the Lara House and WE WILL BE BACK. The historic Arts & Craftsman home is simply elegant at every spot, filled with amazing furniture, lighting and decor. Most important was the amazing CUSTOMER SERVICE. Innkeeper Sandy Griffin and her team are gracious, relaxed, informational, genuine and pay caring attention to detail... More

We came across this wonderful B&B via google search on our cell phone while driving into Bend. Luckily there was one room available, and the location was very easy to find. Beautiful place! Right near a park and in easy walking distance to downtown restaurants. Innkeeper Sandy was very helpful with suggesting a few good choices for dinner, and offered... More

Nothing but good things to say. We stayed for four nights last September as part of two weeks in Oregon. If you like nice B&Bs, you'll like the Lara House. The owner "Sandy", it's location (Bend is GREAT!), the property, you name it, it's all great. FYI - Sandy does a beer and wine mixer before dinner. She is the... More

Wow!! What a fantastic weekend we had staying at Lara House Lodge. The location is perfect with the beautiful Drake Park right there and a very short walk to the downtown area with a variety of delicious restaurants and fun shops. At Lara House Sandy the owner has thought of everything to make you feel relaxed and comfortable. This is... More

This is a very nice Bed and Breakfast, we have stayed at a couple of places in Bend and this one is worth the price. Great location, clean and well appointed. We enjoyed the turn of the century feel and the tasty breakfast in the morning. Enjoyed our two nights at this place... plan to come back again.

I have visited the Lara House several times in the past and always loved it. I was a little nervous this time as I knew it had changed hands but it is still wonderful. The house is beautiful and perfectly decorated. The bedrooms are so comfortable. The breakfasts are very tasty. And of course the setting is perfect, close to... More

We had a great time during are four night stay at the Lara House. We traveled to Bend for the Bend Marathon and a late honeymoon. We were really happy with our choice of B&B. The owner, Sandy, gave us great meal suggestions each night and we strongly recommend taking her advice on restaurant selection. The location was ideal for... More

The room and location was really nice. It was very clean and is a walk away from downtown, but for 180 bucks a night, I felt that it was over priced. The breakfast was a sugary parfait followed by one slice of mushy French toast and two slices of bacon. Absolutely no variety for those who don't enjoy eating a... More

We tried to stay in as many historic hotels and B and Bs as possible on this 15-day road trip so we were really looking forward to staying at Lara House. My husband loves Bend and, in fact, we detoured out of our way so he could spend his birthday in Bend. Sadly, our stay at Lara House was not... More

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. The Lara House is in a residential neighborhood and for our guests security we keep the house locked since we do not have a front desk. Guests are provided the door code at check in. The Lara House does have a set check in time so that our housekeeper can... More
