We're vacation home owners, too.
The Kellys have called Bend home since 1981—the year Tisha and Gary were serendipitously born in the same small town. Bend has grown a lot since then, attracting tourists far and wide, and consistently ranked as one of the top places to live, work, and play in the US. Central Oregon Vacation Homes provides professional, local service to owners and guests, acting as both your management company, and your guide to Central Oregon’s services, activities, and more.


Owners Tisha and Gary Kelly are born and raised Central Oregonians with a combined 25 years’ experience in hospitality. Tisha Kelly brings 10 years of Executive Hospitality Management from leading resorts in Central Oregon, including Sunriver Resort and Brasada Ranch, managing over 100 team members and $3 million in revenue annually. With over 15 years of hospitality experience, Gary Kelly serves as the resident jack-of-all-trades, mechanical or otherwise. Gary ensures that all properties are in top shape for your visits and visitors, alike.
