House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
I am a semi-retired real estate investor who fell in love with Bend and can't find any place I would rather live. There is so much to do here if you like the outdoors, but the community feel is what really makes it special.
John purchased this House in 1999
Why John chose Old Bend
This was my vacation home in Bend before I decided I had to live here permanently. There are not many homes on the river in Bend, which makes it quite special. You can walk through Drake Park along Mirror Pond to downtown Bend in about ten minutes, and the other direction is the Old Mill District. I love this location and neighborhood so much that when I wanted a bigger home, I moved next door. It is rare to find a place that is so close to everything and because of the river still seems a bit wild.
What makes this House unique
It's really all about the river and the central location.

Enjoyed our stay very much. Didnt drive anywhere.
Lived living by the river
The property is so peaceful and beautiful day and night on the deck by the river. I was sorry i didn't get to spend more time there during my visit to my son, but he kept me on a very busy social schedule. But the time I spent at the little house was extremely comfortable, i don't have a single complaint. John was friendly and informative when we met him upon our arrival. A sweet stay in Bend.
What a great place. Johns place is so central to everything. Go left from the driveway and walk 15 mins thru Drake park and you are downtown. Go right for 15 mins and you are in the Old Mill District full of more restaunts, shopping, and a good jumping in point for river activities. Or dont leave at all and hang out on the dock and people watch the endless floatilla drift by.
John was great. Made sure we had everything we needed and shared some hiking tips with us to see waterfalls not to far away.
We will definatly be returning here.
Perfect riverfront stay in Bend
We couldn't have been happier with our stay here. The house was cozy with a comfortable layout and everything you need. The yard with a patio at the river is a rare find in Bend and we could have spent many more days sitting by the Deschutes. Unfortunately, the location is so great (close to both downtown and the west side) that we had to leave the house a few times. Would love to stay here again!
Glad you enjoyed your stay. You are welcome back anytime!
Great view, location and so clean!
Couldn't be happier with our recent stay. Perfect cottage for me, my husband and our dog. All the amenities we needed. Off street parking was great since we ended up walking everywhere. Thanks to owner, John for such a warm welcome as we arrived. Looking forward to another stay in the summer!
Cozy lovely cabin!
We loved this little cabin on the river. Cozy and peaceful. The location is excellent. We walked everywhere. We would love to comeback in the summer!
