Overall, we had a lovely stay in Lori's unit. This unit is one of three or four (couldn't quite tell) on a beautiful piece of property along the Deschutes River, just outside of Sun River, and about 20 minutes from Bend. Communication with Lori was very easy, and she has a caretaker on site who manages everything when she's not around. Our unit was clean and well taken care of, and well set up for cooking, etc..the description could be a bit more accurate however, as the unit is much darker than it appears in the photos, and the bed is, as noted in other reviews, a double, not a queen size, which was a bit of a challenge for my 'tall and big' guy. It's also the least private of the units, in that it is ground level, opens into the parking area, and the french doors by the bed open into the shed storage and rv parking area. All that said, Sun River and Bend call for spending one's time outdoors having fun, our stay was overall comfortable, and for a place to sleep and enjoy morning coffee and a stroll by the river, this place is great!

The apartment was clean, cozy, and comfortable! It is very handy to Sunriver resort where we were attending a wedding. I was glad to have a quiet place to stay away from the resort.

The Heart Studio was very cozy. The property is very quiet and peaceful and close to everything we needed for the weekend. Lori was very thorough with check in/check out instructions, which made this process very easy. If you are looking for a quiet place, outside of the main sunriver village this is the place!

When you arrive at Heart Studio, steps away from the Deschutes River, your stress level goes down a hundred degrees. The location is breathtakingly gorgeous with the river, mountains, meadow and trees. In addition, it is extremely quiet and peaceful. Lori's home is a place of sunshine and joy with beautiful art, nature and whimsical gardens with places to sit and relax. I stayed in the Heart Studio, the first floor studio of the main home. It was very private and a cozy, comfortable retreat. It has everything you need to feel at home. I like to cook and I was able to make home cooked food in the kitchen. The bed was comfy, cozy, private and clean. The property has an eclectic feel with the various bikes, canoes and other Airbnb rooms (like the tee-pee) which to me, add to the uniqueness of the property. Lori is very kind, accommodating, helpful and flexible. I am looking forward to returning to Heart studio and spending much more time in beautiful Bend, Oregon. Thank you Lori and Heart Studio!
