Bend Vacation's


The Waiting Room for Downtown Bend

Crater Lake Spirits is well known for the sprits, but the first of our local secrets is their amazing tasting room in downtown Bend.  Near the corner of Greenwood and Bond and located right next door to the Deschutes Brewery Pub, Crater Lake Spirits is often dubbed the Waiting Room for Downtown Bend.  Many of the downtown eateries don't take reservations and there is almost guaranteed to be a wait during summer months.  Rather than standing around outside while you wait for your table, put your name on the list and head over to the tasting room at 1024 NW Bond St to enjoy a delicious mini cocktail.

Some other Crater Lake Spirits highlights are Flight Night every Monday with free tasters, live music every other Monday, kid friendly (just not at the bar), and an amazing selection of both Crater Lake Spirits and their signature mixers.  Save yourself a trip to the liquor store and wait for your table in style.  They even offer their pints in plastic bottles so you can take them on your outdoor excursions.  Crater Lake Spirits truly embodies the Spirit of Adventure.

Another of our local secrets can actually be used for any vacation.  Booking your vacation rental directly with a local vacation rental property management company can save you hundreds of dollars over the big sites like VRBO.  We partner we several management companies in town, but one of our favorites is Premier Vacation Rentals - Bend.  Not only do they have some great homes to choose from (our favorite is the Congress St. house) but Jess, the property manager, lives locally and is always ready to lend a helping hand.  She provides wonderful service and great insight on some of her favorite things to do around Bend.  She might even share some of her favorite paddle boarding spots with you!
