Property description

Located in Bend’s desirable Westside, 'Columbia Street Retreat' is walking distance to Drake Park, downtown, great dining, coffee shops and bakeries, gourmet grocery stores and many other conveniences. This recently built, clean and spacious, one bedroom house sleeps up to four people in a relaxing and private setting. It is tucked behind our main home with a reserved alley-access parking spot. It may not have a view but thirty steps in either direction puts you in the heart of Bend's activities.

The cottage has all the amenities you need for a comfortable home-away-from-home stay. Enjoy a gas fireplace, flat screen TV with cable and DVD’s, free internet access, games, books, fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer and all the little things that make you feel at home. There are even luxury robes for your use.

Whether you're headed to a concert at the Les Schwab Amphitheater, dining at one of Bend's incredible restaurants, enjoying the Munch and Music concert series in the park, attending Indie films at the BendFilm Festival, or enjoying one of our other outdoor festivals, you can do it all without getting into your car.

About the owner: We have lived in Bend for 19 years and we still love it! We are very familiar with this wonderful city and are happy to share that information with you, (but only if you have questions for us!) We have traveled extensively, and know what it takes to make a stay special. We have tagged our favorite of the many local dining establishments and other attractions that lie within a few blocks of your rental home. Please be sure to check them out. And just across the Deschutes River, a 12 minute walk, is Downtown Bend with dozens more dining choices, great shopping and many historical sites. For more details about Downtown, please Google 'Downtown Bend, Oregon.' You'll be glad you did. Debi is a licensed Realtor and has helped many guests with information about Central Oregon Real Estate.

We chose this location for it's proximity to the heart of Bend, where so many events take place. Most visitors enjoy exploring our beautiful downtown. The year-round festivals, concerts, shopping, great dining, all happen here. It is nice to have everything nearby so you don't spend all your time trying to get around.

We provide a personal touch. If you forgot something, or realize you want tabassco on your eggs, just let us know what you are missing, we will very likely have it to give you!
