River Terrace House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathrooms, sleeps 6+

If you love rivers as we do, this house will make your vacation! The uniquely designed home, by local architect Rick Wright, is in a quiet neighborhood, surrounded by park land, perched on a hillside, at the end of the street. The location allows for breathtaking views of the river and all the sporty action. Here the Deschutes river takes on a rugged personality. There are sweeping river views and sounds of both class 3 rapids, and wide, gently moving water. In this peaceful and quiet setting you can unwind and let your senses absorb it all. You can walk along the water's edge, through forests of Junipers and Ponderosa pines. You can be alone with nature.

A new footbridge directly in front of the home, allows you to walk across the river and have a birds eye view of the rapids! The bridge takes you to a naturally wooded park and joins the trail that leads into town along the river.

The multi-level home overlooks First Street Rapids Park, Davis Park and the Deschutes River Trail. The locally treasured trail runs miles along the river and begins at your doorstep. You don't need a car. Step outside to walk, jog, or bike for miles along the river and discover quiet places and fabulous mountain views. In the wetlands along the trail, are songbirds, osprey, trumpeter swans, otter and beaver. Deer roam the hillsides. Fly fish for trout, launch your canoe or kayak into the river, take a swim, or just sit and absorb the natural beauty. It's all there for your immediate enjoyment.

Inside the beautifully decorated home, the rooms are furnished with comfort in mind. The white walls, wooden beams and furniture create a soft palette for the colorful rugs, pillows, and the owners original photographs and watercolors. The living and dining room are places to gather with family and friends while enjoying the scenery through expansive wall to wall, floor to ceiling windows. A gas fireplace adds warmth with the flip of a switch. The sun room, with river rock walls that absorb the warmth of the sun, is a quiet place to read or nap, or wath the kayaks shoot the rapids. The new den, lined with antique leaded glass cabinets, has a gas stove, comfortable leather chairs and brass reading lamps - a perfect place for quiet contemplation beside a grove of quaking aspen. Three large decks flow off these living spaces for easy indoor/outdoor living. On the decks, you are perched by the river as you relax, observe wildlife, soak in the hot tub, or dine with family or friends, as you watch the river run by.

Upstairs, all three bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, and tall arched dormer windows that let the outdoors inside; the rooms are bathed in sunlight and starlight.

The master bedroom has a private office where you can check into work if needed. In the master bathroom, there is a deep soaking tub, an enormous shower, and steam room.

All bedrooms are equipped with iron headboards, Tiffany-style colored glass lamps, down comforters, colorful quilts, fine cotton sheets, and beautiful oak chests of drawers or built in storage.

Except for 2 bathrooms, all rooms have great river views! Every window has Hunter-Douglas shades so you can shut out the world if that suits you.

Miss civilization? You can easily walk 10 minutes or bike 5 minutes east across the new footbridge, along the river trail into town, or through lovely residential neighborhoods, and over the street bridge to Old Bend town for a beer at a local brewery, coffee, shopping, or a delicious meal at one of many fabulous restaurants. It is just a quick and easy 20 minute drive to the mountain for skiing.

You can't find a home that is so close to town, yet is surrounded by the wilderness!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful sanctuary on this beautiful river. Swans honking at the river kayakers...quite surreal! Everything was perfect from the big snow flakes falling an hour after our arrival to the lovely fresh flowers on the table. Fabulous skiing, fabulous times. All our thanks!

Fantastic location and incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home for our family of 5. It provided plenty of space, high end appliances and finishes. It was cozy and we were welcomed every morning to incredible views of the river. It was completely clean, stocked and well organized with everything labeled making it easy to use. We enjoyed its comforts and incredible "walk-to-town" location. We would hope to stay here again in the future.

This house was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It was better than expected. It is spacious and the view is breath taking. The location is great. We loved the 900 Wall Restaurant and bar. Working with the owner was very easy. She was very accommodating and responded to emails quickly. We couldn't ask for a better experience and are already trying to plan a trip up there again next year. Thank you for a great time.

Great Riverfront Bend Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

A group of college friends and I stayed at this property for a long weekend get together in Bend and it was the ideal home-base for a vacation in Central Oregon. The description of the property is very accurate, the house is well-maintained and very clean, the owners were responsive and helpful, and the location is second-to-none. Views of the Deschutes River and within walking distance of downtown Bend and all of its restaurants, festivals and breweries make it great for couples and groups alike. We split up for several activities during our weekend including fly fishing, golfing, hiking and ATV'ing and had a wonderful time, thanks in large part to the location and layout of this home.

First St Rapids Vacation Home in Bend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Bend and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The house is at a dead end street overlooking the river. The layout is very unique. The large windows provide great natural light and amazing views. The house is within a .5 mile walk of downtown which was very convenient. The owners were nice enough to let us use the garage to store our gear and bikes. We would definitely recommend this property to family and friends.

Wonderful vacation home by the Deshutes river!

  • 5 of 5

This riverfront home was the perfect place for our Bend vacation! So roomy while being comfy and cozy! The kitchen had everything we needed when we 'ate in' and the grill was great for cooking out. The view was amazing and we loved being able to have the windows open to catch the cool breezes and listen to the nearby rapids. The house is super convenient to town (especially with the trail to town practically at our doorstep) and there are many walking/biking trails right outside the door as well. The hot tub is an extra added bonus!

Betsy was so easy and pleasant to work with during the entire rental process. She even had flowers and a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. I am so grateful that she and her husband are willing to share their wonderful Bend home with vacationers!!

We were also very impressed with the city of Bend and the variety of activities available nearby. We didn't get a chance to check all of them off our list so we will definitely be making a return trip.

Secluded riverfront, surrounded by parks, Walk to Old Bend town, 20 min to ski. Although the house is located on a quiet rustic setting on the Deschutes River, the house is a short walk to downtown Bend with many great breweries, shops, and restaurants.

Living on the river is special. Watch the wildlife come and go. Watch or participate in sporting activities.
