Enchanted Dwellings. If you haven’t yet heard of this cluster of Bend vacation rentals perched on a quiet western hillside, now you have. The owner of this magical enclave, Alex, and his business partner Steve, are not only superb hosts but also generally nice people. When my mom was recovering from her second wrestling match with breast cancer, and when my husband and I were about to get hitched, we flew my mom out and put her up in one of these truly enchanted Bend vacation rentals.

Color, comfort, and natural light. Enchanted Dwellings has all three.

Like long lost family, Steve, Alex, and my mom connected almost immediately (My mom IS the sweetest woman alive.). In their beautiful space, my mom was able to feel the comfort, relaxation, and quiet she very much needed and deserved. So… Thanks, you two, for building a sweet place in Bend where a woman recovering from cancer and watching her daughter get married could feel taken care of and embraced. Thank you.
