Bend's new ice skating rink in winter just a ten minute walk upstream.
This charming home is walking distance to Bend's downtown through the lovely Drake Park that hugs the eastern bank of the Deschutes River.
Our cottage is just under 900 square feet, so it is the definition of cozy. We have tried to keep it homey and traditional with quality touches. A lovely gas fire heats the main living areas of this cottage. The bedrooms and bathroom have their own quiet wall heaters. This cottage does not have central air although we have a portable unit if the weather gets very hot and is not predicted to be cooling down at night. The nights usually cool down nicely and we have provided fans to keep air moving.
The high thread count linens of pure cotton; down, and down alternative pillows outfit the bedrooms. Down, and down alternative duvets will keep you warm on chilly nights.
The cottage is also walking distance to the Old Mill District with it's recognizable shops, restaurants, and multi-cinemas. Bend's old historic buildings charm while hosting the many seasonal festivals and 'First Friday (of the month) Art Walks'.
For children: the new child friendly amenities of Colombia Park is just a five minute walk up the quiet street and over the footbridge up-stream from the cottage. (No busy streets to cross!)
There is also Harmon park with it's huge grassy field and backstops, and the children's' play area with the 'teeny boat', swings and play structure another 5 minute walk down stream across Galveston/Tumalo Bridge and up Harmon.
Walk to many of the micro-breweries Bend is also so famous for. Being on the west side, there are many small restaurants and food trucks/trailers/carts featuring many different offerings.
For indoor entertainment, besides the satellite television stations, we have a small library of DVD's, and videos to choose from, and a 'Roku' for access to Netflix with your a, to watch on the 42 inch screen. We also have a selection of books and games (dominoes, checkers, Parcheesi, Scrabble, cards etc.)

The West side of Bend is also very close to Century Drive, the road to Mt. Bachelor, home to winter recreation. Skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing and skating as well as snow tubing available through the winter and usually until the end of May! Ice skating is also available just a few minutes walk up river at the new ice skating rink (winter only).
