About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)
The gourmet kitchen overlooks the river and opens into the family room, wet bar and breakfast eating area. Equipped with high-end appliances that include a classic French Gas Range, two dishwashers, a warming drawer and a wine fridge, this area was designed for entertaining. Lots of counter space and direct access to the barbeque area and deck make for convenient indoor/outdoor living.
The large, covered deck on the riverfront is a beautiful place to enjoy all of your meals in the warm months, and the built-in heaters make even the cool evenings spectacular.
The kitchen, separate dining room and comfortable living room all overlook Mirror Pond through expansive windows. A gas fireplace in the living room adds to the comfort in the cool evenings.
There are two bedrooms and two baths (one en suite) downstairs comfortably furnished, one with a queen bed and one with a king bed. Each has ample closet and clothes storage space. The upstairs Master Suite overlooks the river and includes an office area (with a premium and truly adult-comfortable convertible double bed), Master Bath, and Sleeping area with a cal-king Hemingway bed.
You can launch your kayaks right from the lawn and explore the Deschutes from downtown Bend to the Mill District or even practice your fly fishing into the river.
One unique feature of the property is the detached party room. The room is fully heated, has hot and cold running water and an ice maker, and is perfect for playing cards or games, smoking a cigar, or just relaxing and conversing...especially during the cooler months. (This is the only room where smoking is allowed.)
The three car garage and shop have plenty of room to store bikes, skis, and other outdoor recreational equipment. The large, park-like lawns bloom all season from over 1000 perennial plants. The property is large enough to ensure privacy, yet is located in the center of all of the amenities that Bend and Central Oregon have to offer. It offers quality ''Bend Living'' at its finest!
Things to do: Bend offers almost every outdoor activity known! Staying near downtown Bend puts you in the heart of this beautiful area and makes getting to and from your activities easy.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

This home is located within easy walking distance to the restaurants and galleries of downtown Bend. It is directly on Bend's trademark downtown river/pond, Mirror Pond. People staying at the home can use the drift tubes and kayaks to float the river, to explore about two miles of the famous Deschutes River. There is abundant wildlife that visits the property, including River Otter, Mink, ducks, geese,and birds. One can observe Osprey and Bald Eagles seasonally. It is about a 20 minute drive to Mount Bachelor Ski Area and lifts for Winter Recreation. Bend is located near old volcanic disturbances that left flows of lava, lava tubes and caves. Local Indian population lived in these caves and there are ample opportunites to hike and explore in the desert side of the Bend area. There are about 25 public access golf courses in the area. Forest hiking and fly fishing is world class in the area.
For a great family vacation, Bend is very hard to top.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I love the outdoors, good friends, active pastimes, and family.
Why the Owner Chose Old Bend, Bend, OR, USA:
I spent hours on the deck reading, with my Nikon standing by, and I am still excited when when birds or wildlife come to visit. The setting is peaceful and yet only minutes from downtown.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love sharing Fun on the River with guests who, incidentally, seem to unanimously agree with me that this is a special place on earth.
