Lara House Lodge celebrated its centennial birthday in 2010, but this Northwest-style bed and breakfast is anything but old. Featured in Seattle magazine’s Great Escapes 2010: Bend, the historic six-bedroom home earns points for location and gets its fresh feel from all-natural décor, exemplified by the rock wall that surrounds the property, the cherry-colored wood underfoot and overhead, and a wealth of natural sunlight that pours through its many windows. Warm-hued down comforters and private bathrooms bolster the homey feel in each of the guest rooms, including three king rooms and three queen rooms that gift visitors the feeling of royalty without having to hire a court jester. Beyond plasma and LCD TVs equipped with extended cable, windows overlook Drake Park's lush swath of land that hugs the banks of the Deschutes River.
Lara House Lodge's sun room, filled with plush sofas and chairs, is a popular spot for guests to enjoy their morning breakfast, which is made from local and organic produce whenever possible. In-house chefs brew local organic coffee and set out homemade granola, organic yogurt, and pastries. As evening falls, guests gather to enjoy wine and appetizers on the candlelit porch before trekking five minutes into downtown for dinner, drinks, or live theater and music at the historic Tower Theatre. Bend is home to seven microbreweries⎯many within walking distance of the lodge⎯so guests can leave the car keys at home and avoid designated-driver disputes settled via cage wrestling.

Although gray skies loom over most of the Pacific Northwest, Bend averages 300 days of sun per year. Because of its warm, dry climate, high-desert terrain pervades the area in the form of thick juniper trees, arid winds, and snow-capped mountains. About 14 miles from Seventh Mountain Resort, imposing Mt. Bachelor tempts skiers and snowboarders with more than 70 powder-covered slopes. Summer activities abound at spots such as Smith Rock State Park, whose many easy day hikes provide beautiful vistas of deep river canyons inhabited by golden eagles, mule deer, and river otters. A five-minute drive southwest leads travelers to the Deschutes River, home to both smooth waters and churning Class III rapids. Whitewater rafters barrel along with the current as mountain bikers traverse miles of hilly trails lining the river's banks. A 15-minute drive into downtown Bend brings travelers to a cluster of restaurants, boutiques, and galleries. With outdoor tables and hanging pots of purple begonias dotting every street corner, the area has the feel of a quaint East Coast hamlet. Instead of chain restaurants and big-box stores, visitors find one-of-a-kind nooks, including nine local microbreweries. Among the best of these is Deschutes Brewery, which has earned acclaim from both beer-festival judges and local sippers. The award-winning Obsidian stout encompasses notes of chocolate, espresso, roasted malt, and black barley. A passion for beer pervades the city; it's not unusual to catch sight of the cycle pub, a mobile keg on wheels propelled by up to 14 customers pedaling through the downtown streets.
