Lara House is a lovely inn located in a charming neighborhood with a park across the street and within walking distance of the town center. The interior is beautifully appointed, well maintained and clean. There is a lovely front porch and back deck to sit and enjoy after a day of driving or hiking. Local wine or beer and a cheese platter were offered to us, there were cookies and drinks ready for the taking at any time. Breakfast was delicious. Sarah, the innkeeper is young and very new at her job... she does well for her inexperience with the area. There is not the warmth that one feels in many b&b's, but I think it has to do with her inexperience.....but she is really trying hard. If I were to return to Bend or know someone going there, I would recommend Lara House!
