THE ULTIMATE BEND RIVERFRONT W/ RAPIDS PARK & TOWN @ THE DOOR

Bend House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathrooms, sleeps 6+

If you love rivers as we do, this house will make your vacation! The uniquely designed home, by local architect Rick Wright, is in a quiet neighborhood, surrounded by park land, perched on a hillside, at the end of the street. The location allows for breathtaking views of the river and all the sporty action. Here the Deschutes river takes on a rugged personality. There are sweeping river views and sounds of both class 3 rapids, and wide, gently moving water. In this peaceful and quiet setting you can unwind and let your senses absorb it all. You can walk along the water's edge, through forests of Junipers and Ponderosa pines. You can be alone with nature.

A new footbridge directly in front of the home, allows you to walk across the river and have a birds eye view of the rapids! The bridge takes you to a naturally wooded park and joins the trail that leads into town along the river.

The multi-level home overlooks First Street Rapids Park, Davis Park and the Deschutes River Trail. The locally treasured trail runs miles along the river and begins at your doorstep. You don't need a car. Step outside to walk, jog, or bike for miles along the river and discover quiet places and fabulous mountain views. In the wetlands along the trail, are songbirds, osprey, trumpeter swans, otter and beaver. Deer roam the hillsides. Fly fish for trout, launch your canoe or kayak into the river, take a swim, or just sit and absorb the natural beauty. It's all there for your immediate enjoyment.

Inside the beautifully decorated home, the rooms are furnished with comfort in mind. The white walls, wooden beams and furniture create a soft palette for the colorful rugs, pillows, and the owners original photographs and watercolors. The living and dining room are places to gather with family and friends while enjoying the scenery through expansive wall to wall, floor to ceiling windows. A gas fireplace adds warmth with the flip of a switch. The sun room, with river rock walls that absorb the warmth of the sun, is a quiet place to read or nap, or wath the kayaks shoot the rapids. The new den, lined with antique leaded glass cabinets, has a gas stove, comfortable leather chairs and brass reading lamps - a perfect place for quiet contemplation beside a grove of quaking aspen. Three large decks flow off these living spaces for easy indoor/outdoor living. On the decks, you are perched by the river as you relax, observe wildlife, soak in the hot tub, or dine with family or friends, as you watch the river run by.

Upstairs, all three bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, and tall arched dormer windows that let the outdoors inside; the rooms are bathed in sunlight and starlight.

The master bedroom has a private office where you can check into work if needed. In the master bathroom, there is a deep soaking tub, an enormous shower, and steam room.

All bedrooms are equipped with iron headboards, Tiffany-style colored glass lamps, down comforters, colorful quilts, fine cotton sheets, and beautiful oak chests of drawers or built in storage.

Except for 2 bathrooms, all rooms have great river views! Every window has Hunter-Douglas shades so you can shut out the world if that suits you.

Miss civilization? You can easily walk 10 minutes or bike 5 minutes east across the new footbridge, along the river trail into town, or through lovely residential neighborhoods, and over the street bridge to Old Bend town for a beer at a local brewery, coffee, shopping, or a delicious meal at one of many fabulous restaurants. It is just a quick and easy 20 minute drive to the mountain for skiing.

You can't find a home that is so close to town, yet is surrounded by the wilderness!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Fabulous place!

Your house is incredible. The kiddos love the secret rooms - to them the reading room and the multiple floors are "secret" rooms. The kitchen is well stocked. We are very happy.

Very cool home.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME ON THE RIVER!

  • 5 of 5
Three couples (from Arizona, Maine and Massachusetts) who travel together every 5 years or so had the good fortune to rent this spectacular home. The many rooms gave us a feeling of space and privacy; however we usually gathered together in the comfortable living room and out on the lovely deck. We walked the local trails, waded in the river just beyond the house, walked into Bend often...a lovely town with flowers everywhere. We went to several local restaurants and pubs but also really enjoyed cooking in the wonderfully stocked kitchen and dining in the room overlooking the river and its many activities. Our week just flew by and we wished we had more time to "hang-out" in the house but since this was our first trip to Bend (and to Oregon) we took advantage of the many local sights. This home is conveniently situated near many interesting places to visit. The owners are very responsive and seem to take pleasure in the enjoyment that their home brings to their renters. We all loved it!!

AUGUST-BEND-FIRST RAPIDS PARK OVERLOOK

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic view: the house is situated above the river overlooking rapids, yet within walking distance of downtown. The photographs were accurate with respect to the view, although the house is not as isolated as I had imagined. Nevertheless, it felt private and secure. We thoroughly enjoyed the setting. The hot tub was a nice touch. The steam bath in the master bedroom produces a prodigious quantity of steam.
The rooms were spacious, clean, and airy. Enough room for seven of us, aged 11-53. We turned off the A/C for the entire stay to let in the magnificent Bend air and the sound of the river.
Many aspects of the house are quite clearly labeled, which answers a lot of questions renters might have. Helpful suggestions for places to eat and activities are in a binder near the front door. The owners were timely and courteous in responding to questions, but have high expectations from their guests for using the various amenities. The list of rules was a bit daunting.
Viewing the TV was a challenge, first, because it is hidden in an entertainment center and requires one to raise it via electronic button, which wasn't obviously labeled. Second, we could only receive two viewable channels. Since we didn't go to Bend to watch TV, this wasn't a big loss, but it would be helpful to have more guidance and options for use of the cable TV.
We had visits from a friendly local cat and a herd of deer. We also saw some meteors from the Perseid shower. It was an altogether delightful stay.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed our home in Bend. We are an isolated in-town location compared to all the vacation rentals along Mirror Pond that are right next door to each other. We are tucked up on a hillside away from other houses and road. We still can watch the people on the river which is very entertaining. I wish you had called us about the TV so we could help you make it work. We do have the full package of channels (over 50 but not the movies). The Universal Remotes handles everything (TV, stereo, speakers all over the house) and the instructions are supposed to be in the binder. I will check and make sure those are in place. The house rules come with the contract and are pretty standard among vacation homes. They just are mostly common sense to keep the visitors and house safe, or to prevent costly repairs. I cant figure out who owns the cat but he is someone's pet! He appears instantly whenever anyone goes outside and he expects attention! The deer think they own the backyard, and they seem very shy. The Perseid shower was amazing this year. See you next summer!

THE BEST MEMORIES

  • 5 of 5
The most comfortable, functional, amenity laden, well organized and well maintained home away from home. Perfect location for relaxing, biking (casual or trail), walking, running or watching the kayakers from the porch. Convenient base for local sightseeing and adventures. The sound of rapids outside of master BR windows - priceless. Owners helpful and responsive. When we go to Bend again we will stay here.

RIVERSIDE PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Awesome property in a beautiful and convenient location. Being right on the river on a hot summer day was both refreshing and entertaining as we sipped wine on the deck and watched everyone and their dogs enjoying the river. House is well appointed, being equipped with everything needed regardless how long you are staying and the personal touches Betsy has shared, the books and pieces of their lives make this feel like a home. Pictures don't do the home or the setting justice. It was a perfect spot for an adult family getaway and would highly recommend Bend as a destination and this home as the gathering place. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

Many great restaurants

Secluded riverfront, surrounded by parks, Walk to Old Bend town, 20 min to ski. Although the house is located on a quiet rustic setting on the Deschutes River, the house is a short walk to downtown Bend with many great breweries, shops, and restaurants.

Living on the river is special. Watch the wildlife come and go. Watch or participate in sporting activities.
