Being from Portland, we were familiar with the Bend area and its amenities, but had freinds in from out of town and wanted to spend a couple of days showing them the lure of Central Oregon. Not necessaily wanting to stay in a hotel, we opted for the Hillside Inn after searching online for available properties. I called and spoke to Annie, the proprietor, ahead of making a booking, and she was very responsive and open to answering all of my questions. I booked both rooms for the four of us immediately.
Upon our arrival, we were met by Annie and given the tour of the propery and were quite pleased with the presentation. The spaciousness of the rooms, amenities provided and overall first-class quality of the property as well as manicured grounds made us feel instantly at home. Annie's hospitality was warm but not invasive and it was obvious that she genuinely cared about our needs and wants. The food was phenomenal - not your typical B&B bagels and fruit. And the service was superb.
All of the furnishings in the rooms are top-line . . . no cutting corners here! Everything you would want in a five-star hotel is at the Hillside Inn, but with much more in ambience and personal touch service. This is a great place for a weekend (or more) getaway if you're looking for an out of the way spot that is very accessible to downtown Bend and offers all the comforts of home.
You will not find a better, more comfortable location. Annie's personal attention to detail is second to none. We will be back for sure!
