The large lots and well-spaced homes will leave you feeling like you've left the hustle and bustle of the city… Yet, you're less than a mile away from downtown Bend! At this home, you are truly close to everything that is Bend, "the outdoor playground of the West." Bend offers a number of outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, and mountain biking. Or stop by any of the local breweries, wine bars, one of many bakeries, incredible dining – any can fill your desire for that refreshing treat.
Once you arrive at this home, you'll see why we call it the “treehouse in the pines.” Step into the well-lit living room with floor to ceiling cathedral windows, and you're greeted with truly magical views through the trees. Relax in any of the comfortable new furniture, and take advantage of the wall mounted 55” flat panel Smart TV, which can stream all your favorite entertainment. Or breathe in the fresh air out on the large back patio, as the birds chirp and local deer quietly roam. With plenty of room to spread out and relax, each person should find their perfect space.
Modern appliances, and quartz countertops highlight the spacious, fully-equipped kitchen, newly installed! Pick up some fresh produce at the local farmer's market and cook a homemade meal with ease. The 10 ft dining room table offers plenty of space for you to dine with family, friends and loved ones. Or fire up the gas grill and dine al fresco out on the spacious back deck, while the chef in your group channels their inner Bobby Flay or Rachel Ray!
As the day comes to an end, retire to any of the bedrooms for a quiet night's sleep. The master bedroom features a firm king bed, modern bedding with 4-pillows and en-suite bathroom. Bedrooms 2 and 3 have new firm queen beds – 4 pillows each. There is a conveniently located 2nd full bath. In the bonus room, convert the couch to a queen bed – it's a great place to tuck-in the kids after a long fun-filled day of adventure. There is a second flat screen TV in the bonus room with a DVD player – along with a two overstuffed bean bag chairs should the kids need more to do before time to sleep.
Bring your hiking boots, mountain bike, kayak, stand up paddle board… all your favorite outdoor toys! Bend is covered with walking and biking paths. Just a 3-minute walk from the house is the all new Hillside Park – Bend Parks & Rec did an amazing update. Phil's Trail and all the paths the run through and around NW Crossing are available for exploring. Headed toward downtown, there are paths to Drake Park, the Old Mill District, nothing is that far away. Those that would rather ride can feel free to use the 2 bikes provided in the garage to take a leisurely pedal.
If you're a foody, you're in the right place. Within a mile of the house, you might consider the Victorian Café for a hearty breakfast, the line moves fast and yes, it's worth the wait. If you're in the mood for something lighter, try a smoothie with the freshest ingredients from Mothers. A little later, wander to Next Level Burger or Hawaiian-Mayan inspired options at LongBoard Louies. 10 Barrel and Sunriver Brewing are equally close to try some of Bend's better fermented options. As the sun sets and you start to think about dinner, you might want to consider Arianna or Bistro 28. The later has excellent Gluten-Free options and reservations are recommended for both. If you're looking for something more informal, consider Spork, Kebab (their fresh hummus is incredible), or Pacific Pizza for dine-in or take out. And in the event you want to do it yourself, a complete gourmet grocery store, Newport Market, is but a few blocks away.
Make your way to the Old Mill District for a day of fun! This area is full of shops, restaurants, and art galleries as well as a number of events throughout the year. A meal at the outdoor patio of Greg's Grill as the sun sets low in the sky over the Deschutes River can become an unforgettable memory. Across the short walking bridge is the amphitheater that draws award winning performers from around the world.
If you are still looking for more, there are tour providers that can fulfill all your desires for excitement – from mild to extreme. Canoeing, kayaking, rafting, paddle boarding – it's all here. There's even a group bike experience in downtown Bend where 6-8 of your friends peddle on a single machine on a brewery tour.
