Meet Your Host

Wendy Kelley, Owner,
Welcome to Kelley Vacation Homes! My name is Wendy Kelley and I am honored to share my homes with you. I was born and raised in Newport, Oregon and moved to Bend in 1978. Along with moving came meeting my husband Pat, of 38 years, our two daughters, and now—energetic and wonderful grandsons (to them, I am Ra Ra and they are my pride and joy).

Pat and I own and operate a quaint motel on the coast in Newport, Oregon and my business partner Gretchen Palmer and I own and operate Wall Street Suites here in Bend; never in my wildest dreams did I imagine both properties would be #1 for traveler’s choice on Trip Advisor in their respective cities. It is something I am very humbled by, and proud of.

When I am not on Ra Ra duty, or at the motels, you can find me on the hiking trail with my best gal Stella. She’s a Blue Picardy Spaniel and such a joy. I have taken up photography in recent years and it has elevated my adventures of hiking, golfing, snowmobiling and kayaking. I do hope you will enjoy Central Oregon; it’s beauty has kept me here for a reason!
