“Lovely B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2011

We stayed at Lara House with another couple for a visit to the Bend area. It was perfect. The breakfast was yummy and Peter is a great host. As one reviewer said, the bath was a bit on the tiny side, but we realize it's an historic house that's been made into a B&B. Who knows if they even had bathrooms back when it was built! All in all, we'd love to go back again! We peeked into all the rooms during our stay, and they were equally well-appointed and luxurious. The sitting area downstairs was exceptionally cozy, with a fireplace & coffee/tea/sodas available.

My wife and I just stayed at the Lara House Lodge for 2 nights. The house is a B&B 2 blocks from downtown Bend and near the park and lake in the heart of town. Or room was spacious with a king bed and a couple of chairs. The Bathroom was nice, but a little tiny.
We had 2 great breakfasts!

Peter the innkeeper and his wife were extremely friendly and helpful. They recommended 2 excellent places for dinner. We had wine and snacks in a rocking chair on the veranda on a lovely Indian summer afternoon. It doesn't get much better

Wonderful hospitality, lovely rooms and a delicious breakfast. What more could you ask for? Well, we did get a splendid recommendation for our evening meal which turned out to be one of the best meals ever! Highly recommend this place and will be planning to return soon.

My husband and I stayed at Lara House during a recent road trip through Oregon. This was our favorite B&B on the trip, and indeed one of the best we've ever found. The location is perfect - right off Mill Pond in Bend's beautiful historic neighborhood, easy walking distance from downtown but very quiet and restful. The house itself is a thoughtfully and lovingly restored historic property, but with entirely modernized and updated amenities. Our room was extremely comfortable, with luxurious linens, a well-appointed bathroom, and a flatscreen TV/DVD player (there is a pretty extensive collection of DVD's available for guests' use). The owners are very welcoming and knowledgeable about Bend, and made a wonderful dining suggestion and reservations for us. We enjoyed a lovely glass of Pinot with nibbles during the evening social hour, and breakfast the next morning was delicious. We have nothing but good things to say about Lara House, and hope to return soon.

We traveled to Bend for a weekend of outdoor activities with friends. The Lara House was not only beautiful, but also centrally located for easy walking to restaurants and shopping downtown. Great breakfasts and coffee (coffee is ready early! Nice!) with pleasant decks and outdoor spaces for enjoying coffee in the morning or the complimentary wine/beer/hors d'ouevres in the afternoon. The Inn keepers are also very friendly and accomodating and we couldn't ask for more in a B&B setting. Far better than the popular alternative, the Phoenix, wonderful value and memorable experience.

Lara House Lodge is a beautifully restored historic house in a charming old neighborhood. The location is great, just a few blocks from downtown Bend. The hosts are both accommodating and helpful. Breakfast is a delicious treat, served with all organic foods. I had the pleasure of viewing all the rooms in the house and was surprised the each room's unique style and the overall cleanliness of the house. Lara House Lodge is a great retreat from the stress of everyday life. I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Bend.

The Lara House Lodge is an absolutely beautiful house with an interesting history and charming hosts! The rooms are tastefully decorated and our room had a fantastic view of the huge park across the street. The wine and cheese hour was relaxing and delicious, and the breakfast was to die for! It is within walking distance of Bend's vibrant downtown area, and our hosts recommended a fantastic restaurant for dinner. I would recommend this B & B to anyone searching for that perfect romantic get-away!
