Bend bungalow description

Charming Craftsman in the historic Old Bend neighborhood just south of the downtown core. Our home is just two short blocks from downtown shops, great restaurants and art galleries and only a 15 minute walk to the Old Mill District. The Deschutes River with Drake Park, hiking and biking trails, kayaking and tubing are just a short walk away also and the Mt. Bachelor ski resort is only a 30 minutes drive. You will find a newly remodeled Safeway grocery store 3 blocks away and we are four blocks from one of the best bike rental shops in town.

Other amenities include a gas fireplace, gourmet kitchen, washer/dryer and two full baths with heated tile floors. We kept the original maple hardwood floors in the living room and yes, they still squeak, but the have been beautifully refinished. Both bedrooms have one queen size bed.

Please check our calendar for available nights.

Come be our guests and enjoy!

Guest comments:

'We had a delightful long weekend at your Bend house! The location was great--a short walk downtown and convenient to the road to Mt Bachelor. And the house is so cute and comfortable.

'We loved your house in Bend. The weather was perfect and we got in 10 days of skiing at Bachelor. The lifts closed at 1 PM which gave us a little hiking/biking time in the afternoon. Hope to do it again in the near future!

Thanks Again - Bill'

'Mike and Sharon...

We just wanted to tell you that we had a wonderful time in Bend .. The house was just too cute. You did an excellent job on the remodel. We treated your place as it was our own and would not hesitate to to book there again. We loved it!!!

Dan and Nancy Warner'

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Sharon is a real estate broker and Mike is a general contractor. We both love craftsman style homes and renovating and remodeling. We live in San Diego but find Bend to be the perfect second home. Dave, our caretaker in Bend makes renting our place easy because of his attention to detail and prompt follow-up with our guests.

              Why the Owner Chose Bend:
              We found Bend completely by accident. Our only experience with Oregon was visiting Brookings on the coast just north of the CA border and we found the stereotype of OR weather to be spot-on. Wet, chilly, even in the summer. What we didn't know was the little advertised east slope of the Cascade mountain range is one of the most beautiful places on earth. On a ski / road trip in 2005 to visit friends in Vail and then Jackson, we were then headed to Florence, OR for a wedding. Fortunately for us our path took us directly through Bend. That was after spending the night in Burns and wondering how we didn't know there could be a desert in OR. Anyway, we fell in love with the place. It was February and the weather beautiful! Stopping for gas we asked for directions to Mt. Bachelor. The station attendant who was wearing shorts, advised us not to head up to the mountain that day, because there were blizzard conditions. Yeah right, we thought. Bachelor only 20 miles away and it was nice and sunny in Bend. To make a long story longer... the attendant was right. We started our journey and at mile 5, it started to snow. At mile 15 it was snowing REEEAALY hard. By the time we got to the resort parking lot we were in complete white-out conditions and could barely see to park. Well, we had a very a nice lunch in the lodge, and, after a very short discussion, we decided skiing an unfamiliar mountain in whiteout conditions would probably not be wise. We resigned ourselves to return another day. Resuming our trip to Florence, we were delighted to find little Hoodoo ski resort (two lifts) just west of Sisters. After two fun hours of skiing in clear conditions we still made the coast and Florence by 5:00 pm for the rehearsal dinner. Our next trip to Bend was in the summer and that sealed the deal for us. The people, weather, community, dining, and outdoor life are everything we wanted for a second home. So we bought one! THE END... and new beginning :-) Sharon & Mike
