|Minimum Stay||1 - 2 nights|
One bedroom with queen bed and a really comfortable queen hide-a-bed, right on the Deschutes River. You can walk one way to town (through Drake Park), and the other way also along the river to the Old Mill District.
You can watch the otters, beavers, eagles, osprey, mink, heron, geese, swans and ducks from the riverfront deck. There is another deck with a gas bbq right out the back door.
It is a short drive to Mt. Bachelor for world class skiing as well as the Cascade Lakes with amazing outdoor recreational opportunities.
Hiking, mountain climbing, road biking. You can even ride your mountain bike from your front door, and in only 3 miles be on the famous Phil's Trail, with 100's of miles of uncrowded single track.

I am a semi-retired real estate investor who fell in love with Bend and can't find any place I would rather live. There is so much to do here if you like the outdoors, but the community feel is what really makes it special.
John purchased this house in 1999
This was my vacation home in Bend before I decided I had to live here permanently. There are not many homes on the river in Bend, which makes it quite special. You can walk through Drake Park along Mirror Pond to downtown Bend in about ten minutes, and the other direction is the Old Mill District. I love this location and neighborhood so much that when I wanted a bigger home, I moved next door. It is rare to find a place that is so close to everything and because of the river still seems a bit wild.
It's really all about the river and the central location.
Way too short of a stay for us on our first trip to Bend. Thank you so much for being so accommodating from initial contact to after our "checkout". All the recommendations for rides and use of your map and trail book are so very much appreciated. You have a great place in a great town in a beautiful area. Thank you for going above and beyond!
We'll be back soon.
We appreciated how easy it was to walk downtown and to the Old Mill shopping center. The neighborhood is very quiet. The house has seen better days. But soon we found ourselves watching the geese float by on the river, the deer, the snow falling, the neighbors' lights reflecting on the river at night.
We are moving to Bend, and this place felt like an old friend by the time we left.
I can't recommend this place enough. Great location, clean, very well stocked. The backyard and deck on the river will make you not want to leave. John was extremely friendly as well.
Loved our weekend in Bend. Great location and perfect cottage to come back to after a long day of exploring.
Loved it, was just what I was looking for. John is s great guy and make things right.
Perfect place for a getaway! John was great and the location was perfect.
