Overview

River West House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

This beautifully remodeled classic Bend home sits on 125 feet of Deschutes Riverfront on Mirror Pond. It is conveniently located within walking distance to downtown Bend and all of its stores and restaurants. Spectacular views from all of the living areas of the home partake in the seasonal rituals of wildlife on the River. Evenings on the large covered deck are punctuated by the arrivals of large flocks of geese, ducks, swans, and the occasional river otter swimming on the reflective water. Behind this serene view are the trees of historic Drake Park.

The gourmet kitchen overlooks the river and opens into the family room, wet bar and breakfast eating area. Equipped with high-end appliances that include a classic French Gas Range, two dishwashers, a warming drawer and a wine fridge, this area was designed for entertaining. Lots of counter space and direct access to the barbeque area and deck make for convenient indoor/outdoor living.

The large, covered deck on the riverfront is a beautiful place to enjoy all of your meals in the warm months, and the built-in heaters make even the cool evenings spectacular.

The kitchen, separate dining room and comfortable living room all overlook Mirror Pond through expansive windows. A gas fireplace in the living room adds to the comfort in the cool evenings.

There are two bedrooms and two baths (one en suite) downstairs comfortably furnished, one with a queen bed and one with a king bed. Each has ample closet and clothes storage space. The upstairs Master Suite overlooks the river and includes an office area (with a premium and truly adult-comfortable convertible double bed), Master Bath, and Sleeping area with a cal-king Hemingway bed.

You can launch your kayaks right from the lawn and explore the Deschutes from downtown Bend to the Mill District or even practice your fly fishing into the river.

One unique feature of the property is the detached party room. The room is fully heated, has hot and cold running water and an ice maker, and is perfect for playing cards or games, smoking a cigar, or just relaxing and conversing...especially during the cooler months. (This is the only room where smoking is allowed.)

The three car garage and shop have plenty of room to store bikes, skis, and other outdoor recreational equipment. The large, park-like lawns bloom all season from over 1000 perennial plants. The property is large enough to ensure privacy, yet is located in the center of all of the amenities that Bend and Central Oregon have to offer. It offers quality ''Bend Living'' at its finest!

Things to do: Bend offers almost every outdoor activity known! Staying near downtown Bend puts you in the heart of this beautiful area and makes getting to and from your activities easy.

About Bing Lantis

I love the outdoors, good friends, active pastimes, and family.

Bing Lantis purchased this house in 2005

Why Bing Lantis chose Bend

I spent hours on the deck reading, with my Nikon standing by, and I am still excited when when birds or wildlife come to visit. The setting is peaceful and yet only minutes from downtown.

What makes this house unique

I love sharing Fun on the River with guests who, incidentally, seem to unanimously agree with me that this is a special place on earth.

The ball is not ours -- it must be from the playground.



Thank you so much for your gracious hospitality at the river house -- we had a great stay. All of us in our group have rented many vacation homes over the years, and we all agreed that Bing's house was one of the very best. The warm welcome we received and the overall hospitality were simply the best.

Beautiful property on mirror pond with a huge outdoor heated deck! Morning coffee on the patio and evening corn hole games on the lawn with friends was exceptional! Michelle the property manager was extremely helpful and allowed a later checkout to accommodate our group. Property located 10 min walk from downtown Bend. Bikes, kayaking, rafts available on site!

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. As advertised, it was right on mirror pond in the heart of Bend. We used it as headquarters for a week of post-wedding family festivities and it was great. We had a great time kayaking right off the back yard and we also walked over to a concert in the park. I'd love to stay here again.

Booked it to be "Wedding Central" for son's wedding in Aspen Hall.Out of town guests' enchilada dinner 1st night ended up with 21 ! The kitchen, deck & house layout handled the group perfectly.Jam sessions on deck overlooking Mirror Pond were magical .Even tropically blooded guests from Fl & Panama stayed warm under the deck heaters. Bing has thought of everything to make guests comfortable. So many different seating groups in the big house made it fun for all being reunited .Bride had her hair & make-up station in the dining room, as the rest of us were finishing up last minute details. I cannot wait to go back when it is warm enough to float out in front & kayak. Michelle, Bing's assistant, was so gracious & helpful.Fresh flowers awaited us when we arrived!! My expectations were exceeded! Hop-in-the -Spa in Sisters, soaking in cedar tubs filled with warm Deschutes beer & fresh hops was a great unique experience! PubCycle was a hoot!! Thanks again, Bing !

Owner's Response: Hi Carole, I am so happy that you were able to enjoy Fun on the River and the Bend area. There is so much to do, activities in town and the surrounding area during all seasons. I hope that it works out for you to come back someday and just relax and watch the river flow by, take a slow walk to town for breakfast or lunch and a little shopping, then walk to the Galveston district for a fine meal at Ariana's or a Pub treat at one of the several great pubs. Thank you for the kind words. Bing

Perfect home for our family vacation

Absolutely the best VRBO we've stayed in! The owner and house manager were attentive, easy to get a hold of and so friendly. The location was perfect, walking distance to everything and right on the water. We will definitely be back. Go Beavers!!

Super location and excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great stay at this house. Our reason for being in the area was to get to the mountain for skiing. Really great skiing the whole time and a great place to retreat to after a hard day of skiing. The proximity to... everything... allowed us to walk to whatever we wanted to.

We can't wait to stay here again in the summer!

This home is located within easy walking distance to the restaurants and galleries of downtown Bend. It is directly on Bend's trademark downtown river/pond, Mirror Pond. People staying at the home can use the drift tubes and kayaks to float the river, to explore about two miles of the famous Deschutes River. There is abundant wildlife that visits the property, including River Otter, Mink, ducks, geese,and birds. One can observe Osprey and Bald Eagles seasonally. It is about a 20 minute drive to Mount Bachelor Ski Area and lifts for Winter Recreation. Bend is located near old volcanic disturbances that left flows of lava, lava tubes and caves. Local Indian population lived in these caves and there are ample opportunites to hike and explore in the desert side of the Bend area. There are about 25 public access golf courses in the area. Forest hiking and fly fishing is world class in the area.

For a great family vacation, Bend is very hard to top.
