              Car: Not Necessary

              The Desert Zen Bungalow is located in a quiet and quaint neighborhood surrounded by big trees in the heart of the popular Westside situated right in between Galveston and Newport Avenues. The location is truly exceptional!

              Walk just a few blocks to Drake Park and meander around Mirror Pond. Relax under the 100 year old ponderosa pines and watch the lazy Deschutes River flow past. Cross a wooden foot bridge that takes you right into downtown Bend where you will find world class restaurants such as Zydeco, Joolz, Barrio, 900 Wall, and fun breweries, pubs and shops.

              Or, you can walk to the popular shops and restaurants on Galveston Avenue, including 10 Barrel Brewing which is a great starting point on the Bend Ale Trail! There is Ariana Restaurant, fine dining in an old Victorian home, and many other fun shops and restaurants for you to discover.

              Speaking of beer, Bend has more breweries per-capita than any other city in Oregon. Dubbed “Beer Town USA”, Bend is home to the Bend Ale Trail, a series of breweries you can travel to, and get your “passport” stamped every time you sample a different microbrew at one of the many outstanding breweries in town. If beer isn’t your thing, there are also several up and coming distilleries and even wineries to experience!

              Feel free to hop on one of the provided cruiser bikes and explore Westside Bend like a local! You can cruise several blocks to all of the fun shops and restaurants on Newport Avenue. Stop into Chow for a fantastic breakfast with locally sourced ingredients, and live music out on the lawn. Visit Newport Avenue Market for groceries, and a dose of local flavor.

              Hop onto the River Trail bike path, and cruise down through the Old Mill District to shop and explore down by the river. Catch a summer concert at the Les Schwab Amphitheater, or go see a movie at the IMAX theaters in the Old Mill.

              There are so many fun activities for you to experience while vacationing in Bend, Oregon, and your vacation home is the perfect launch pad for all of your adventures! The Deschutes River runs through the center of Bend, and there are miles of trail to explore right in the heart of town.

              For world class mountain biking, there are countless trails for you to conquer. The Phil’s Trail System is an easy 5 mile ride away! Just ride up Galveston Avenue, and it will take you right to the trail head. Stop into Pine Mountain Sports to rent a mountain bike and talk to their expert staff to find maps and all the gear you will need.

              Road bikers will love the miles and miles of quiet highway that winds through forest down to Tumalo, a sweet little town just outside of Bend.

              Another great way to experience Bend, Oregon is on the water! Rent a tube or kayak from Tumalo Creek Kayaks and “float the river” like a local. Or, head up the Deschutes for thrilling white water rafting! Bend has been recently dubbed as one of the best stand-up paddle destinations in the country. Have you tried this? Its a blast! And much easier than it looks.

              Kids LOVE Bend! There is the High Desert Museum, Lava Lands National Park, and plenty of kid friendly outdoor activities. Your kids will love all of the parks and playgrounds, including “Pirate Park” off of Columbia Street, and “Tug Boat Park” just on the edge of Drake Park.

              If you are wanting to get out and explore, Central Oregon offers endless opportunities to get out into nature. Century Drive will put you onto the Cascade Lakes highway where you will be deep in the back country in a matter of minutes. Grab a kayak or a stand-up paddle board and explore the spectacular Cascade Lakes! There are plenty of mountain hikes as well, ranging in levels from easy to challenging. South Sister offers an extraordinary summit opportunity, with views of Central Oregon that will take your breath away!

              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 from the Lavender Cottage that will take you to and from the mountain. Check out the Mount Bachelor website for the schedule and for weather conditions.

              Traveling from Bend to the North will take you to Smith Rock State Park one of the premier rock climbing destinations in the world. Smith is great for hiking too! Pack a picnic and spend the day with your family. You will love the rock formations, steep ascents, and sweeping views of Central Oregon.

              Traveling from Bend to the West will take you through Tumalo to Sisters, Oregon, home of the famous Sisters Rodeo, and the Sisters quilt show. Named after the towering 3 Sisters mountains that border the town, this sweet town has a Western feel with fun antique shops, a truly fabulous quilting emporium and some great little restaurants.
