“Location, gourmet breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Rooms were clean and nicely decorated, the location was perfect, close to downtown and right across from the beautiful park. Breakfast each morning was delicious, creative, and served with a smile. Staff was pleasant and even accommodated our request for breakfast earlier than scheduled so we could eat before going on a bike tour, which was appreciated and above & beyond.

The Lara House is a great example of a nice spot to stay in one of the most beautiful areas of Oregon. The rooms are all comfortable, spacious, and outfitted luxuriously. The house is within easy driving distance of many great outdoor locations, such as Smith Rock and Mount Bachelor, allowing the perfect home base for all of your outdoor pursuits. If the outdoors are not your cup of tea, the house is located right in the heart of Bend, allowing travel to many great locations within the city. The house is very well maintained, and offers much for private individuals and social ones as well. I would highly recommend this place to a friend, and will look forward to staying there again should I find myself in Bend again.

The Lara House Bed and Breakfast is the perfect place to stay as you enjoy the historic town of Bend, Oregon. The craftsman style house is beautiful and inviting with six clean elegant rooms. My Husband and I were able to stay up in the Summit room, which was the biggest room and the most romantic. We had our own living room to lounge in, along with an amazing king size bed, and walk in bathroom. Breakfast is from 8:30 to 9:00am and was extremely delicious; the Inn Keeper Caitlynn sure knows how to start of your day right, with a filling breakfast that is made from all local products and changes daily. I truly enjoyed coming back to the Bed and Breakfast from a long day filled with hiking and exploring bend, I was able to enjoying a delicious glass of wine in front of the cozy fire place to unwind from the day. When it was time to go home, I found my self not wanting to leave! I will be returning very soon!!!

The Lara House Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful place to spend a lovely weekend with someone special. My husband and I atayed there in May. The house is beautiful and our room was impeccably clean and well appointed with an ensuite bath. It is located a short walk from town and all of the great restaurants and shops and it is across the street from Drake Park which is just lovely and on the Deschutes river. You can ride bikes, hike, relax, shop...whatever you want is moments away. The staff is very attentive, they offer local beer and wine in the evenings and full, delicious breakfasts in the morning. They were able to accomodate my food preferences as well. I will be back, without a doubt!

The fact that this house is immaculate and the room was incredible are far down this list. The couple that run this house (whose names I've forgotten, sorry!) are incredibly kind. Our first night there, we were tired from our trip and he offered us beer (from the Deschutes brewery) or wine and a cheese plate. We accepted and he recommended that we sit in one of the common rooms where we could relax on a couch with a view of Drake Park. They offer a cocktail hour (beer or wine) daily and a snack which is usually cheeses, some fruit and crackers. But the best part was the breakfasts. Both days, there was a three course breakfast that was among the best I've ever had. There was a bread course, a main course and a fruit course. Everything was homemade and spectacular. And the fact that it's only a few minutes walk from downtown was an added bonus.

I just returned from a wonderful Memorial Day weekend at Lara House B&B. It is under new ownership and new management and they are ready to provide you with a great experience. The house is very clean, cozy and inviting. The breakfasts were gourmet and yummy. I loved our room. The ambiance is romantic and mellow and the bed was super comfortable! The location is perfect, across from Drake Park and a couple blocks walk into Old Town Bend is a big plus. There is even off-street parking and a bike rack for your bikes or the bike rental place is two blocks away. Laura House has a large front yard with lawn games available and relaxing outdoor areas to sit, doze, read, relax, watch the world go by or pick up the croquet mallet or Frisbee and play. Enjoy!!!!

Room Tip: Each room has it's own bathroom with showers but only a couple have bath tubs. If you like a go...

The Lara House is a beautifully maintained Bed and Breakfast that is lovingly restored to it's original period pieces. There are 5 bedrooms varying in sizes, each with it's own bathroom. From our viewpoint the Deschutes Room is the best. It's large with double sinks, a king size bed and two chairs to sit on. It's a corner room, so windows are on two sides. We stayed in the Cascade Room, it was lovely, but only one sink in the bathroom. The beds are very comfortable and the furnishings are very lovely. The serve breakfast which consists of a fruit plate (which varies), some kind f a breakfast quiche dish and scones, homemade bread or the like. It's a 2-3 block walk to town and many wonderful restaurants. The Lara House is a wonderful place to stay! We will return.

Room Tip: Reserve early in the summer.
