Great location. Half a block to the park; one more block to the downtown restaurants and market. Very pleasant rooms, well appointed. The breakfast was find, but not stellar. We enjoyed our selves. If you have the time, enjoy the veranda and a glass of wine or beer before heading out to dinner.

This pricey b&b has potential to be great. Close to Deschutes river and park, as well as close to downtown and good restaurant. Rooms were nicely decorated but very dark. We have stayed in B&Be in lots of places, including Israel and Middle East. This is the most expensive one we have stayed in. But neither the decor, setting, our... More

Great ambiance, nicely furnished rooms, all the necessities, and very, very scrumptious and plentiful breakfasts! A great little place to stay while in Bend. Short walk to the downtown area. Knowledgable owner gives tips for restaurants and day activities.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Lara House B&B. The craftsman style home is located within walking distance to downtown and Drake Park. We stayed in the Deschutes Room which was very nice. The bathroom featured a shower stall only, and is fairly small. If you weigh more than 130 pounds, you might find it to be... More

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that the bathroom was not as spacious as you would have liked. The house was built in 1910, so space must be utilized uniquely so that each room can have it's own private ensuite bath. Each bathroom is designed differently so as to work with the space allowed. We are glad that... More

As others have mentioned, Lara House has a great location right across the street from a lovely riverside park, walking distance to downtown. Our room (Shevlin) was beautifully decorated; the bed was very comfortable, too. If you are staying several nights, you might want to get a room with a bigger closet, but for 1 night, it was no problem... More
