What a fantastic house in a perfect location!


What a fantastic house in a perfect location. The owners are extremely kind and responsive. Cara was always willing to accommodate my family. The house was very clean and well stocked. Having a fenced yard for our dog was so convenient but even better was the dog park across the street (school by day–dog park on nights and weekends). It was a safe location and we enjoyed walking to dinner, breakfast and even to the Newport Market grocery store. Will recommend this place to all friends/family who visit and newcomers to Bend to stay.

I couldn’t recommend a vacation rental higher!


I have stayed at Lavabelles every year for the past 7 years. The houses are immaculate and well-designed. They are perfect for a family get-a-way. We love cooking dinners and relaxing in the hot tubs. When we are too tired to cook, its a quick 5-10 minute walk downtown to get to the restaurants. A few years we have gone with extended family and rented a few houses. They are conveniently located next door so it was a perfect way to have enough space for everyone but still feel close together. Cara is amazing and responsive. I couldn’t recommend a vacation rental higher!

Among the best vacation rentals I have ever stayed in!

I’ve stayed at several Lavabelles properties, always around Christmas and New Years. They are uniformly among the best vacation rentals I have ever stayed in. All of the houses are stylishly furnished and have unique touches that highlight their history. I’ve had a breeze communicating with Cara and cannot recommend staying at Lavabelles enough if you’re coming to Bend.

Location is perfect – within walking distance to everything

We stayed at Fay for a month this past spring, and could not have had a more wonderful time. If we were lucky enough to live in Bend year-round we would want to buy this house! The home is super cool, modern, and beautifully decorated; comfy; absolutely spotless; and was stocked with everything we needed during our stay. The adorable guest house out back and fire pit are a huge bonus, too. The location is also perfect — we were within walking distance to everything (including lots of yummy bakeries, restaurants and breweries). Thank you Cara/Shannon/Lavabelles for making our stay in Bend so wonderful!!!

Many memorable and comfortable stays at Lavabelles

We have had many memorable and comfortable stays at these homes. We found wonderful books on the shelves, thoughtful touches everywhere; from the reading nook to the mismatched dresser knobs. The homes were spotless yet comfortable enough to host a backyard BBQ. We walked to shops and drank coffee on the front porch. You can count me in as a Lavabelles frequent flyer.

“The Church” – One of the coolest holiday homes I’ve ever stayed in!

Absolutely Loved the rental home we stayed in with friends for a long weekend of hiking. We stayed in ‘the Church’ which was honestly the coolest holiday home I’ve ever stayed in! In fact we had more fun hanging out in its big open interior space than in the actual mountains. The place was immaculate and Cara was super helpful (especially with answering all of our questions about the various TV streaming accounts). The near downtown location also made life very easy. The McMenamins Old St. Francis School restaurant was just across the street from us (definitely grab a drink in the Broom Closet Speak easy bar) and I would also recommend checking out the Bend Brewing Company during your visit. We are already planning a return trip to go skiing.

Super clean, beautifully designed and centrally located.

Love lavabelles! I’ve stayed at 4 of their places- all super clean, beautifully designed and centrally located. Plus they are pet friendly! Highly recommended.

I cannot believe how awesome these places are!

We just stayed in the Lucinder and I cannot believe how awesome these places are. We were right next to Laverne, which is adorable. These places ooze charm. Highly enjoyed! Thank you LBs.
