Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom; In the heart of Bend

Recently restored historic, Mill house, downtown Bend. This home is a quick few blocks to downtown shops, great restaurants, galleries, and only a 15 minute walk to the Old Mill District. The Deschutes River and Drake Park, hiking and biking trails, kayaking and tubing are just a short walk away. Mt. Bachelor ski resort is only a 30 minutes drive. A newly remodeled Safeway grocery store is 3 blocks away. We are a couple blocks from an awesome bike rental shop and The Taco Stand - a hidden gem and locals' favorite.

Perched on a rock outcropping on a corner lot, facing south, overlooking the old mill area. In the heart of it all.

Other amenities include a gas fireplace, fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, large bathroom with double sinks. Each bedroom has its own wall mounted TV (with Netflix) and a queen size bed.

About Linda Brundage

We've always had a passion for building and renovating homes, and gardening. We relocated from Corvallis to Bend in 1990, and have never looked back. We raised our daughter here, and consider Bend to be our home.

Linda Brundage purchased this bungalow in 2000

Why Linda Brundage chose Bend

A realtor friend found this property for us. It was a diminutive 447 square feet with a sagging roof, windows askew, and no foundation! And so of course, we fell in love with it and had to have it. Of all the building/remodeling projects we've ever taken on, this is the one we knew was special. After much research, planning, and conversations with the local Historic Society, we embarked on the adventure of restoring (and adding to...) the property. This home is a true gem. We are proud to offer it as a vacation rental; your temporary home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I stayed here recently and had such a lovely time. The home was incredibly clean, and fully stocked with paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, etc. It was exactly as pictured and very comfortable. It was also very close to downtown Bend and we walked to breakfast and dinner every day during our stay. We will definitely book this home again next summer for our yearly trip to Bend.

A Place for Happy Memories

  • 4 of 5

We were in Bend to visit children and grandchildren--the location of this cottage was very good and allowed us to walk to the grocery store, gelato, and downtown. The neighborhood was quiet at night, the house was clean, new fixtures, windows, etc. and was well-equipped with televisions and wifi/netflix/amazon connections. The hardwood floors, adorable little in-the-wall gas fireplace, dishwasher, washer/dryer, full-size refrigerator, and 4-burner gas stove were all appreciated. The owner was responsive, helpful and available by text as needed. Thank you Linda.

Charming house. Well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week right after new year. The house is very well equipped and the location is excellent. Not too close to downtown (quiet) but within walking distance even when the outside temperature was around 10 degrees. I would definitely stay here again if I revisited Bend. The washing machine and dryer in the bathroom were a really nice bonus (esp. since they are full sized). The internet connection was also very fast for all the things we needed it for.

nice 7-day stay early aug2016

  • 5 of 5

--good location only 15 min walk to downtown. lindas cottage very clean & well equipped. neighborhood little ruff w/many near-abandoned cars/boats parked on streets -- some on blocks. am surprised city of bend allows these vehicles to be parked for obviously long periods of time. however neighborhood quite & seemed safe.

--central oregon has much to offer w/several natl parks &/or natl monuments. many scenic drives around area. high desert museum a must see. probably need @ least 5 days to see all. bend has good farmers markets & downtown weekly munch/music @ drake park.

--overall very nice 7 day stay 2-9aug16. we came from tx to escape the typical hot weather & central oregon came thru nicely w/comfy dry weather.
