Bend house description

The Mirror Pond Bungalow is a classic 3 bedroom 2 bath historic Craftsman bungalow in a quintessential Bend location. On Bend's popular Westside literally steps from Drake Park, Mirror Pond, and Downtown Bend, you can leave your car and WALK EVERYWHERE! Or, hop on one of the cruiser bikes provided, and explore the historic neighborhoods of Bend like a local.

Listed in the US National Register of Historic Places and built in 1923 during Bend’s Mill heyday by Benjamin and Elisa Hamilton, this important home has been lovingly restored and fully updated with all of the modern amenities. Original built-in cabinetry, gorgeous fir wood floors, and fully restored original windows make a beautiful compliment to the fully updated kitchen and bathrooms.

Cozy up to the wood burning fireplace in the living room, or enjoy a book in the sunny den. Watch a movie or play games with family in the large garden level entertainment room with Smart HDTV and plenty of cable channels. The comfy, upscale decor will make you feel right at home, and creates the perfect setting for lasting memories to be made!

The Mirror Pond Bungalow features a fabulous, fully equipped gourmet kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances and a chef’s gas range. There is a bright and sunny breakfast nook for you curl up and savor your morning coffee while enjoying the beautiful gardens out back. Sit down dining for 6 in the spacious dining room is the perfect setting for special gatherings of your family and friends.

The master bedroom features a new, high quality King bed with European style bedding, high thread count linens and a clean, fluffy down duvet. There are gorgeous linens and down duvets in the Queen bedroom, as well as in the garden level Twin bedroom. The 2 twins can be pushed together to form an additional King upon request.

After a day of playing in the hills, come “home” and experience the true down-to-earth Bend lifestyle! Cook out on the gas grill on the old brick patio under a Central Oregon sky filled with stars. Relax and unwind on the large front porch and watch the day go by, Bend-style!

If you prefer to get out of town and into nature, there are endless hiking and mountain bike trails just minutes from town. The spectacular Cascade Mountains and many lakes are and easy 20 minute drive providing endless opportunities for outdoor adventures. Phil’s mountain bike trails are an easy 6 miles to the West, as well as many walking and hiking trails along the Deschutes River right out your front door!

Oh yes, and did we mention world class skiing? Mount Bachelor Ski Resort is an easy 25 minute drive from Bend. This mountain is a blast, with a wide variety of terrain and trails that will keep you blissfully enthralled. There is a Mount Bachelor Shuttle just up the street that will take you to and from the mountain.

At Bluebird Day we aspire to let you in on the inside scoop. We are passionate about our community and hope to share the magic of all that Bend has to offer with you!

                  Why Bend:
                  We are honored to be caring for the Mirror Pond Bungalow! Passionate about our community, we are thrilled by the loving and careful restoration of this important historic Bend home. This Craftsman bungalow is nestled into the heart of Bend's quiet and quaint historic district. Just steps away from Drake Park and Mirror Pond, the location is exceptional for experiencing the true character of Bend. Steeped in history, this home and the surrounding neighborhood provide you with a one of a kind vacation experience that will be truly memorable for years to come.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Aside from the historical significance of this bungalow, without exception, the most unique benefit is the amazing location. Just a short walk will take you into the heart of Downtown where you can experience world class dining, shopping, and local culture. Hop on one of the cruiser bikes provided and you are meandering along the Deschutes River Trail on your way to the Old Mill, Les Schwab Amphitheater, and countless parks. Walk out of your front door and one block away is the spectacular Drake Park and Mirror Pond where you can relax under ancient ponderosas and enjoy the beauty and history of Central Oregon.
