ON THE RIVER--MIRROR POND! RIVERFRONT. BEAUTIFUL HOME, WALK TO DOWNTOWN

Bend House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

This beautifully remodeled classic Bend home sits on 125 feet of Deschutes Riverfront on Mirror Pond. It is conveniently located within walking distance to downtown Bend and all of its stores and restaurants. Spectacular views from all of the living areas of the home partake in the seasonal rituals of wildlife on the River. Evenings on the large covered deck are punctuated by the arrivals of large flocks of geese, ducks, swans, and the occasional river otter swimming on the reflective water. Behind this serene view are the trees of historic Drake Park.

The gourmet kitchen overlooks the river and opens into the family room, wet bar and breakfast eating area. Equipped with high-end appliances that include a classic French Gas Range, two dishwashers, a warming drawer and a wine fridge, this area was designed for entertaining. Lots of counter space and direct access to the barbeque area and deck make for convenient indoor/outdoor living.

The large, covered deck on the riverfront is a beautiful place to enjoy all of your meals in the warm months, and the built-in heaters make even the cool evenings spectacular.

The kitchen, separate dining room and comfortable living room all overlook Mirror Pond through expansive windows. A gas fireplace in the living room adds to the comfort in the cool evenings.

There are two bedrooms and two baths (one en suite) downstairs comfortably furnished, one with a queen bed and one with a king bed. Each has ample closet and clothes storage space. The upstairs Master Suite overlooks the river and includes an office area (with a premium and truly adult-comfortable convertible double bed), Master Bath, and Sleeping area with a cal-king Hemingway bed.

You can launch your kayaks right from the lawn and explore the Deschutes from downtown Bend to the Mill District or even practice your fly fishing into the river.

One unique feature of the property is the detached party room. The room is fully heated, has hot and cold running water and an ice maker, and is perfect for playing cards or games, smoking a cigar, or just relaxing and conversing...especially during the cooler months. (This is the only room where smoking is allowed.)

The three car garage and shop have plenty of room to store bikes, skis, and other outdoor recreational equipment. The large, park-like lawns bloom all season from over 1000 perennial plants. The property is large enough to ensure privacy, yet is located in the center of all of the amenities that Bend and Central Oregon have to offer. It offers quality ''Bend Living'' at its finest!

Things to do: Bend offers almost every outdoor activity known! Staying near downtown Bend puts you in the heart of this beautiful area and makes getting to and from your activities easy.

About Bing Lantis

I love the outdoors, good friends, active pastimes, and family.

Bing Lantis purchased this house in 2005

Why Bing Lantis chose Bend

I spent hours on the deck reading, with my Nikon standing by, and I am still excited when when birds or wildlife come to visit. The setting is peaceful and yet only minutes from downtown.

What makes this house unique

I love sharing Fun on the River with guests who, incidentally, seem to unanimously agree with me that this is a special place on earth.

The ball is not ours -- it must be from the playground.



Thank you so much for your gracious hospitality at the river house -- we had a great stay. All of us in our group have rented many vacation homes over the years, and we all agreed that Bing's house was one of the very best. The warm welcome we received and the overall hospitality were simply the best.

Perfect accommodations in a perfect setting

  • 5 of 5
This home is absolutely perfect for 3 generations! Bedrooms are nicely isolated, each with its own bathroom. The person with the walker was able to get around with access to the deck, and the children had great fun running around on the grass. The view is stunning, and the home has all kinds of details that make it comfortable and elegant.

Magical Pond

  • 5 of 5
The hardest part of our vacation to Oregon was leaving Fun on the River. We absolutely loved our stay there, the house is beautiful, and the owner and the house manager made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. It's amazing how you can see Mirror Pond from almost every room of the house!
My twins slept separately for the first time, they each had their own room with big beds and they loved every single minute of it! They can't wait to have their own rooms again. They also had an amazing time playing in the snow. Lots of memories to cherish!
Thank you for your hospitality! You have an amazing house, Bend is a beautiful place, Mt Bachelor is amazing, and we will someday return to enjoy summer at Fun on the River!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
My only regret in booking this beautiful home is that we didn't book it longer! From the moment we arrived until today when we leave, it has been a fantastic place to spend our Christmas here in Bend. We even had a Christmas Tree waiting for us! We had the privilege to meet the owner when we arrived and I can tell you he is as warm and welcoming as anyone we've ever met. This is the most organized, well equipped, comfortable home we have ever rented. The property manager was just a phone call away. She is great and so helpful, whatever the need. There wasn't a single issue or complaint. The beds are beautifuly comfortable, the bathrooms are very well stocked and clean. The kitchen has everything you'd ever need to create just about any meal you desire. The house has many cozy spots for relaxing as well as great access to downtown, bike trails, parks and pubs. It's a very quiet location. The view is spectacular, especially if you can catch a sunrise. I loved spending time here with our kids who are in university as our family who live here in Bend. It was a perfect place to gather. Thank you for sharing such a clearly special place with us!

Amazing Views & Very Relaxing

Amazing Views & Very Relaxing
  • 5 of 5
This home is situated on Mirror Pond and has amazing views as well as a short walk to town - the owner has spared no expense to stock the house with everything you could possibly want. Michelle the on site manager was great and really answered all our questions upon arrival. There were six adults - all family - who shared the experience and everyone hated to leave. We spent a lot of time on the deck when we weren't golfing, hiking and enjoying the brew pubs. Our adult children used the kayacks and paddleboards and really enjoyed that extra trouch. The kitchen and bathrooms were stocked with everything. You won't be disappointed if you rent this home for your vacation. All the furniture was comfortable and sound system and tv's great. I will mention the beds are firm and for two of us that could have been better. There two bedrooms on the first floor and a master suite on the second. If you have problems with a lot of steps there are two other choices which is nice. Bing the owner was also great to communicate he would answer any questions immediately. Have fun and enjoy Fun On The River. Thanks for a great experience and sharing your beautiful home - it will be hard to beat this VRBO listing.

Amazing on the River!

  • 5 of 5
I'm a bit reluctant to leave a glowing review, but only because it means sharing this amazing property with potential future "competitors" for its time! We spent 5 wonderful nights enjoying this truly unique home on Mirror Pond. Michelle, the house manager, gives a thorough introduction (I highly recommend having her give you a walk through) and shares the history and details of the home. The kitchen is well stocked, and just made for entertaining. We hosted multiple family dinners over our stay, and took advantage of the well appointed dining room, and the deck overlooking the river. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated, and very comfortable (especially the second floor master). It's a quick walk into town to visit the multitude of dining options (check out Alpenglow for breakfast, and the cookies at Cafe Sintra are a treat). A short drive will get you to some of the many local breweries (we enjoyed both Crux and Worthy for lunch), especially the vibe at the Boneyard.
The weather was a bit cold and drizzly to take advantage of the kayaks at the house, but I know we will enjoy them on a future visit. I can't think of anything to suggest as an improvement to Fun on the River (except possibly to allow dogs, as my corgis would enjoy it as well!)

Our stay in Bend was perfect in every way. Fun on the River felt like living in our own private park lodge. Not sure if my favourite spot to sit was the porch rocker in the morning sunshine, or curled into a corner of the sofa in front of the gas fireplace in the evening. Everything was ready for our arrival - pristine clean and the owner and local manager helpful and professional in every way. The owner even apologized after our departure for the "bad" spring weather. We laughed as though there were cool days and even a couple wild brief snow storms, we mostly experienced lots of sunshine which was exactly what we wanted after a gloomy grey winter in Vancouver. We've been to the Bend area a few times now, and always find new things to do - it is so rich in both outdoor and cultural opportunities. Returning home in the evenings we cooked up a storm with ingredients purchased from local markets like Newport Market (walking distance) and Whole Foods in the well appointed large kitchen. Nancy P's bakery is also walking distance and must be experienced! Our Shetland sheepdog was in her element with the large fenced front and back yards.

If we have the chance, we would return to Bend, and to "Fun on the River"

This home is located within easy walking distance to the restaurants and galleries of downtown Bend. It is directly on Bend's trademark downtown river/pond, Mirror Pond. People staying at the home can use the drift tubes and kayaks to float the river, to explore about two miles of the famous Deschutes River. There is abundant wildlife that visits the property, including River Otter, Mink, ducks, geese,and birds. One can observe Osprey and Bald Eagles seasonally. It is about a 20 minute drive to Mount Bachelor Ski Area and lifts for Winter Recreation. Bend is located near old volcanic disturbances that left flows of lava, lava tubes and caves. Local Indian population lived in these caves and there are ample opportunites to hike and explore in the desert side of the Bend area. There are about 25 public access golf courses in the area. Forest hiking and fly fishing is world class in the area.

For a great family vacation, Bend is very hard to top.
