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.

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!

Perfect Bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location and comfy living spaces inside and out, it truly gave us a perfect place from which to enjoy Bend. The backyard was in full bloom. Fragrant and wonderful! Bikes, tubes all were great to have on hand and we definitely used. Our family of six fit perfectly. Very nicely decorated with still plenty of space for our things. Highly recommend.

We stayed at the Mirror Pond Bungalow and the pictures do not even begin to do this home justice. This home was amazing! So very clean and comfy. All of the beds were so comfortable with the fluffy down comforters and pillows. We roasted marshmallows in the cute little fire pit and loved the use of the bikes for Drake Park and Mirror Pond, literally just steps away. Thank you Blue Bird Vacation homes for making our first trip to Bend perfect! We will be back and will only use you. Bluebird exceeded our expectations.

A Top Notch Rental Experience

  • 5 of 5

Mirror Pond Bungalow is a lovely historic home, completely updated for modern comfort while maintaining the character of an older home. The floor plan is very practical, comfortably accommodating our family of 6, including grandparents, parents, and grand kids. The location was as convenient as described; it is on a quiet street, one block away from Drake Park, and an easy walk downtown. When inquiring with Bluebird Day Vacation Rental about a minor matter, my question was immediately answered. Also, the house was immaculately clean. We will definitely return.
