Through 1859 Explore, experience Bend like a local—or if you’re local, live it up like a tourist—by hanging your beanie at a historic Lavabelles cottage. If it’s just the two of you, opt for “Laverne,” a retro chic one-bedroom with a sleeping loft and mountain views. Each completely remodeled home is furnished with vintage and modern pieces, stocked and cleaned with environmentally friendly products, and supplied with high quality linens and European duvets. It’s stumbling distance from the shops and restaurants downtown, and it’s an easy walk to the Old Mill District—which plays host to Bend’s annual WinterFest in February. After a day on the slopes or in the backcountry, head to McMenamins for a dip in the Turkish soaking pool or lounge seating in the movie theater. Passes come with the rental. There are plenty of things to do, see, eat and drink in Bend, but there’s no shame in kicking back and doing nothing. Before you get too cozy, fill your growler at Boneyard Brewery a few blocks away on Lake Place.
