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.

7 minutes to everywhere!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage! We kept laughing because every destination we pulled up was 7 minutes away. Really easy walking distance to downtown and Bend just added Uber so that let us keep the car parked and the fun flowing all trip. Area was very safe and definitely had a nice local feel to it. We hiked, biked, SUP on the river, ate & drank and had a ton of fun! House was cute & quaint and worked perfectly for our needs. Great place to stay!

Home away in Bend OR

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this property. Prior to arrival we received comprehensive instructions about the location and how to access the home. It was nice to have a keyless entry and water and dryer. The home was clean and very quiet. Off street parking was available. It was a pleasant surprise to have maps and information about the area surrounding Bend. We used trail guides, Oregon bird book and maps to help plan our exploration of the area. We added our guides. The property was within walking distance to "old Bend" where a majority of shops and dining was located. Nice plan with good location.

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.
