The Mirror Pond Bungalow is a classic 3 bedroom 2 bath historic Craftsman bungalow in a quintessential Bend location. On Bend's popular Westside literally steps from Drake Park, Mirror Pond, and Downtown Bend, you can leave your car and WALK EVERYWHERE! Or, hop on one of the cruiser bikes provided, and explore the historic neighborhoods of Bend like a local.

Listed in the US National Register of Historic Places and built in 1923 during Bend’s Mill heyday by Benjamin and Elisa Hamilton, this important home has been lovingly restored and fully updated with all of the modern amenities. Original built-in cabinetry, gorgeous fir wood floors, and fully restored original windows make a beautiful compliment to the fully updated kitchen and bathrooms. The outdoor living area is exceptional!

Cozy up to the wood burning fireplace in the living room, or enjoy a book in the sunny den. Watch a movie or play games with family in the large garden level entertainment room with Smart HDTV and plenty of cable channels. The comfy, upscale decor will make you feel right at home, and creates the perfect setting for lasting memories to be made!

The Mirror Pond Bungalow features a fabulous, fully equipped gourmet kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances and a chef’s gas range. There is a bright and sunny breakfast nook for you curl up and savor your morning coffee while enjoying the beautiful gardens out back. Sit down dining for 6 in the spacious dining room is the perfect setting for special gatherings of your family and friends.

The master bedroom features a new, high quality King bed with European style bedding, high thread count linens and a clean, fluffy down duvet. There are gorgeous linens and down duvets in the Queen bedroom, as well as in the garden level Twin bedroom. The 2 twins can be pushed together to form an additional King upon request.

After a day of playing in the hills, come “home” and experience the true down-to-earth Bend lifestyle! Gather 'round a crackling fire in the fire pit with family and friends in the fabulous, private backyard, cook out on the gas grill and enjoy a Central Oregon sky filled with stars. Relax and unwind on the large front porch and watch the day go by, Bend-style!

If you prefer to get out of town and into nature, there are endless hiking and mountain bike trails just minutes from town. The spectacular Cascade Mountains and many lakes are and easy 20 minute drive providing endless opportunities for outdoor adventures. Phil’s mountain bike trails are an easy 6 miles to the West, as well as many walking and hiking trails along the Deschutes River right out your front door!

Oh yes, and did we mention world class skiing? Mount Bachelor Ski Resort is an easy 25 minute drive from Bend. This mountain is a blast, with a wide variety of terrain and trails that will keep you blissfully enthralled. There is a Mount Bachelor Shuttle just up the street that will take you to and from the mountain.

All Bluebird Day homes are lovingly cared for with the intention of offering you a world class authentic Bend vacation experience. Locally owned and operated, we provide you with a unique opportunity to experience the magic of Bend like a local. We care about our neighborhoods and community, feel passionate about preserving historic homes, and are delighted to offer you a glimpse of our unique and friendly Bend lifestyle.
