Interview with the owner of Lara House Bed & Breakfast, Sandy Griffin

What’s the story behind your Bed & Breakfast?
The Lara House was built by the Lara’s in 1910. At that time, the Lara’s would house out of town guests while they owned the home. The Lara’s sold the home in 1919. During the Depression, the Lara House was a boarding house, and during WWII, it housed army families, of soldiers stationed at Fort Abbot in Sunriver. The Lara House has been a bed and breakfast off an on for over 50+ years. It has been run continually as a bed and breakfast since the early 1980’s. I have owned the bed and breakfast for the past 6 years. We are a family owned and run bed and breakfast. 

What’s your favorite aspect of having your own Bed & Breakfast?
My favorite aspect of having a bed and breakfast is the people that I get to meet and being a part of the Bend community. The Lara’s were a big part of the community back when they owned the house in the early 1910’s and we are working to have the Lara House play an important part in the Bend community as well.

What makes the location of your Bed & Breakfast an ideal place to stay in Bend?
The location of the Lara House couldn’t be more perfect. We are a block and a half from downtown and across the street from Drake Park! Our guests can walk to dinner, boutique shops and the park. No need to get back in the car in the evening or for any downtown events.

What is your idea of the perfect Bed & Breakfast experience?
My idea of a perfect Bed and Breakfast experience is a seamless stay, that makes the guests feel pampered, not needing to ask for anything and give them the feel of a boutique inn. Our Mission Statement is “More Than Just a Room”. Included in the room rate is a multi course breakfast, wine and beer hour, freshly baked cookies, bottled water and sodas. There is nothing that the guests need to pay extra for. Come, relax and enjoy is what we want out guests to be able to do.
