Hello. I'm Libby manager of the Milwaukee House I love being so near the river and downtown, walking my kids through the neighborhoods and in the parks along the river, having coffee in town or across the street, enjoying the street fairs and other events nearby. You can spend time hiking on nearby river trails, strolling thru downtown, getting out in the natural wonder of this special place. The house is just right--open, light, comfortable, functional. . So relaxing and fun--Bend is a rare and beautiful place. I love the people and the many activities available.
Libby purchased this House in 2007
Why Libby chose River West
Location, location, location!! Close to bakeries, the popular Back Porch Coffee House and all the near by cafes and restaurants I love this vintage craftsman home with wood flooring, kitchen, laundry, baths, heating, electrical system, fenced yards for dogs & kids. Bend is a special place, as those who live in Oregon know and others discover. Some love the golf courses, others the clean air and beauty, and for activity-lovers, there are bicycle courses and many snow, sun, trail & water sports, events and town fairs. There is plenty to do for the active and very relaxing for anyone seeking R & R or just time to read, write, paint...
What makes this House unique
The Milwaukee House offers the comforts of home because it is a home--not just a rental. Just relaxing on the front porch is wonderful, a perfect spot to watch the world go by on a street lined with trees and friendly passers-by. Downtown (with all the shops & restaurants and Drake Park on the river) is very close, so you don't have to drive or search for parking, and small bakeries offer indescribable treats. Newport Gourmet Market just across the street has everything if you choose to eat in or bbq. The river, 3 easy blocks, is story-book scenic and inviting year-round. You can enjoy exploring, hiking, & motorcycling in the countryside--high desert & gorgeous mountain terrain. Good fishing nearby, lots of music especially in the summer, events & sports of all kinds & walking paths along the river that go for miles. It's always fun. Many golf, ski, and bike enthusiasts come back again and again.

Beautiful cottage and ideally located!
We booked Libby's cottage for two nights to celebrate my husband's birthday. The cottage is within walking distance to downtown and is located next to several restaurants and an upscale grocery store. The patio in the back is perfect for enjoying the sun and having a few drinks. The beds were really comfortable and the kitchen had everything you need to make a meal. Libby also provided us with great restaurant recommendations and we had a great dinner at Zydeco.
Wonderful place in a darling neighborhood
What a find. My sister and I rented Libby's place for 3 nights. It was sparkling clean and really cute. The neighborhood is loaded with adorable bungalows and cottages. Oh and the beds....super cozy and soft. I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud. I would stay at Libby's place again in a heartbeat. Don't miss Newport Market just up the street. What a beautiful grocery store.
