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

On our recent trip to Bend, I was expecting to stay at a roadside motel, and my husband surprised me by booking us at Lara House which was wonderful in all the big ways - lovely, spacious room and bath, delicious and interesting breakfasts, and beautiful house in a perfect location. Right next to the park, it is in a... More

we stayed two nights, and enjoyed absolutely everything about this place. the staff is genuinely warm and cheerful, pleasant, and helpful. the location is perfect, and Bend is a great location itself for exploring the area. the rooms are well laid-out (good logistics are important when two are on a multiple-stop road trip!), the shower pressure is decent, and the...

This is a beautiful old house near the Deschutes River and Drake Park, and also very close to downtown Bend. Quite walkable to local restaurants and pubs. The owner is attentive and informative, the breakfast was outstanding and there is a wine and cheese (and of course beer) offering each evening.

We chose the Lara House B&B for the great location and the good reviews and it did not disappoint. We stayed in the Drake room at the top of the staircase on the second floor. Good sitting area, comfortable bed, several windows. The bathroom has a clawfoot bathtub. The location was very convenient for walking to dinner (recommend Drake and... More

We came to Bend to do some hiking in the Cacades. This was such a great place to come 'home' to after a day of hiking. It is a lovely historic home within walking distance to some very fine restaurants in downtown Bend. Our room was lovely and Breakfasts were delicious. We would stay here again.

We called last minute (20 minutes away from Bend) in hopes of getting a room last minute. Sandy was very helpful and got us set up in the Shevlin Room for that night. We enjoyed Oregon wine and local beer during a complimentary happy hour out on the back patio, complete with a cheese plate. It was a great way... More

We stayed at Lara House for 3 nights in August. The house is lovely and has a convenient yet peaceful location. The breakfasts were excellent and we really enjoyed sitting on the back deck for the craft beer and wine hour. There were also cookies and bottled water available during the day. We would definitely stay here again! Our recommendations... More

This is a lovely house in a great location within walking distance of Bend's downtown restaurants. Warm hospitality from Sandy, the owner, and a "beer and wine" hour between 05:00 pm and 06:00 pm every day when you can chat with the other guests. We really enjoyed our stay here and would certainly go back, so the following comments are... More

We stayed for 2 days at the Lara House and had a great time. Only wish we were there longer. The location is perfect ...steps from the park and the river and downtown Bend. Our room was lovely.
