WOW! What a find. My wife and I spent our first stay at Crooked River Inn on our way to the Oregon coast. Little did we know that it was one of the highlights of our vacation. The rooms were appropriately decorated with vintage antiques; the rooms were immaculately clean; the full breakfast was wonderful . . . but the best and most memorable was our visit with the hostess, a remarkable lady in the highest sense of the word. Stop and spend some time with Elizabeth. It will add a dimension to your vacation that you didn't even know was missing. PandB
This inn is wonderful. The house is so beautiful, as well as warm and inviting. Elizabeth made me feel so at home; she is a gracious innkeeper, a great cook, and a lovely person. Everything about my stay here far exceeded my expectations. I will definitely be staying here again.
In 40 years of bed and breakfast stays, we have never experienced warmer hospitality or better breakfast. Innkeeper Elizabeth, though in business for just a few months, does everything right. Freshly baked cookies (different each day) greeted us on arrival.Breakfasts included piles of fresh baked biscuits, eggs harvested from hens raised on the premises, fresh fruit, blueberry-lemon pancakes, endless supplies of bacon, sausages, grits, juices, etc. etc. The Inn underwent extensive renovations before opening and is in wonderful condition, decorated with items and art collected by the owner-Innkeeper for years. Our "room" was a mini-suite with bedroom, sitting room, small deck, bath, and kitchen, decorated throughout with antiques, collectables and interesting art. Innkeeper is an engaging conversationalist who helped with travel tips and made dining reservations. Inn is a short drive from Bend, a few hours from Crater Lake National Park, and has several golf courses nearby.
Elizabeth was absolutely amazing and accomodating. Her food was delicious, she was friendly, knew the area, and was easy to be around. I always feel awkward in private settings with strangers but she has the ability to put you at ease. The house was gorgeous and clean, everything I could have hoped for.
I surprised my boyfriend with a relaxing birthday retreat at Maluhia Log Cabin. The good sized kitchen had all the necessary cooking utensils, etc. to make big homemade meals. The cabin was perfect for a cozy relaxing day of watching movies and playing games next to a nice warm fire. The place was very clean and it was convenient to have laundry right on site too. The hot tube and porch was a definate plus. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing treat. We highly recommend the cabin! -Monica & Ben
My family spent the holidays with our daughter in Salem, OR. We wanted to explore Central Oregon during the week between Christmas and New Years. Our sons (22 & 23) had never stayed in a B&B, so we decided to look for one near Bend, OR. The rooms and cleanliness met our expectations (we expect a lot). It is not a dirt cheap bargain, but a reasonable value. The breakfasts were wonderful. The owner talks quite a bit, but she figures out your dietary requirements and interests. Your breakfast is customized to your preferences and she suggests local sites you may be interested. We highly recommend Juniper Acres.
My co-worker and I enjoyed the 2 rooms downstairs in the B&B with a shared bath. It was perfect and just what we needed to be able to eat the wonderful breakfasts that Doug fixed and then be out the door to work. Seeing the quail and deer and throw the ball for Karma (the resident Corgi) added to the delightful stay that we would not have had at a motel. We had internet connection to be able to do our work and left feeling we had made friends with some genuine central Oregon folks in Doug and Gloria. Thanks for such a wonderful stay!
We have stayed in bed and breakfasts for 1- 2 weeks in all parts of the USA and parts of western Canada on our annual trip with another couple for the last 14 years and this one is in the top five of them all. The scenry, the hosts, the rooms and last but not least the food.
My sister, friend and myself stayed at Juniper Acres in Jul 09. We had a wonderful time Della was a excellent hostess and went way over showing us a good time. The breakfast's were devine. She and Vern treated us as part of the family. They answered all our questions quilted with us and were always there to help. Our quilting vacation was the best one yet.
Of the dozen or so B&Bs we have visited, Juniper Acres has been one our favorite B&Bs to stay at. We have greatly enjoyed the setting and views as well as the great food and hosts! My wife and I do not think you will find any better place to stay for the price. Roger & Jenn B.
We loved everything about our stay. The food was incredible. The hosts could not have been more helpful and friendly. When our stay ended we felt like we were leaving good friends. If I were going to stay in Bend again this would be the place to stay. It was the best experience in a bed and breakfast we have ever had. Thanks Vern and Della
We cannot tell you how much we enjoy our stay with Vern and Della. It is like being in your own home because of the atmosphere we feel comfortable doing nothing at all or just sitting and visiting with Della and Vern. They are the most wonderful friends....and you do feel like you have found new friends once you stay at Juniper Acres. We are looking forward to heading down there again this year....The value you get is tremendous for the cost. If you value time to relax, enjoy the gorgeous view of the 3 sisters mountains and the overall peace and quiet you will love this Bed and Breakfast. Oh and the food is to die for...Della is the best cook, and Vern makes a mean morning coffee....
My wife and I stayed at Juniper Acres in March 2010. We enjoyed fabulous views from the living/family room and a comfortable array of couches to relax in. Della makes a great breakfast and is very good company during your stay. However, if you are looking for absolute privacy, Juniper Acres may not be the best fit for you since you will be sharing the same living quarters as the host/hostess. We will consider staying with Della and Vern next time we are in Central Oregon.
Stayed 1 night in Sept. 2009. This was the most beautiful B&B we've ever visited. Beautiful views from huge deck in front and beautiful property in back where guests can relax. Quiet, huge property with beautiful night sky and stars if you sit out on the deck. Della saved us from wasting a day doing Scenic Drive and instead guided us to better spots--Newberry Cauldera and Smith Rock State Park--both spots very different and beautiful. They have 2 rooms next to each other that are comfy and clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was excellent. We would have stayed here our whole vacation if we were not on the move. Tip: if you visit Newberry Crater, take a picnic up to Paulina Overlook.
The first time I stayed at Juniper Acres Bed & Breakfast was in the summer of 1994 and since then, when ever I vacation in the Bend, Oregon area, I stay at Juniper Acres B&B. To date, I’ve stayed there ten times. What attracts me to this B&B is the house is a handcrafted log home, very clean and very comfortable. The hosts, Della and Vern, are very friendly. By the way, Della is an excellent cook! Also the view of the Three Sisters is beautiful and the location is quiet. As you probably can tell, I very much enjoy staying at Juniper Acres B&B.
My girls and I have gone to Juniper Acres for the last 7 years for a Mother's Day getaway. We are going again this year. We love Della and Vern, who are the host and owners. They make you feel comfortable and important. Della is and outstanding cook and as graciour as they come. Vern is an outdoor guy and funny. The log home is warm and clean and private. We have become friends over the years and scrapbook together when we go out there. Della also make dinner reservations for you and tell you where all the shopping areas are. Vern will tell you where the good hiking areas are. We love Juniper Acres and would highly reccommend you try this wonder place.
Hi my name is Diane, and I have stayed at Juniper Acres twice and plan on staying again this year in May. I must say that both times I have stayed have been excellent. The rooms are very clean and beautiful. And I most say that Vern and Della are such wonderful people. They make you feel right at home. I am a diabetic and Della made sure that my breakfast was to my diet. Her cooking is awesome. And the view is beautiful. I have never felt so special anywhere. I highly recommend you visit. It is definitly high end at an affordable price.
Juniper Acres B&B was great in every way, but the innkeepers, Vern & Della Bjerk, made the weekend a marvelous experience. Not only did they treat and feed us like royalty, but were friendly, entertaining and enthusiastic in sharing their knowledge of local points of interest. Couldn't ask for more.
Della and Vern are the perfect compliment to the beautiful surroundings of their bed and breakfast. They are wonderful hosts and they have the ability to make you feel content and relaxed and you as you step in the front door. Their location is perfect as it is central to Bend, Sisters, Smith Rock, etc. You will look forward to breakfast, Della is a kitchen magician. We are already making plans to return.
