Our little Tramper Camper is simple and unobtrusive ... just like us. Walking, exploring, finding ways to be helpful ... and giving thanks for every new day. That's the picture we're trying to draw with our lives.

Really easy parking, and host was easy to communicate with.

The spot was a perfect fit for my 24' Class C. It was level and graveled. Had room to extend my slide, and made use of 110v power. This is a nice residential neighborhood, and it was quiet, peaceful and beautiful. I woke up to the sounds of doves and other birds chirping. Enjoyed a great vibe with the hosts. Very nice couple. My T-Mobile cell signal was a bit spotty between 1-2 bars - so email and texts were fine, streaming was not reliable. Host provided perfect directions, was responsive to email and texts and the electrical hookup was conveniently placed. I look forward to staying again, sometime.

Easy to access

Writers Roost was easy to find and access as it's very close to highway 97. Along with their friendly hospitality they provided a fair sized spot for parking our unit. Very pleasant place to spend a restful night. Thanks.

Perfect Stop first night in Bend!

Lovely, generous, host with a perfect sized spot for our 34 ft motorhome. Walking distance to 10 Barrel Brewery! Thanks for the hospitality!

Great new hosts!

We were fortunate that our hosts became members the day before we found their listing! We really enjoyed our stay with them, and their home and neighborhood are beautiful and peaceful.
