About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Drake West Bungalow is located just one block back from iconic Drake Park along the Deschutes River, and one block away from popular Galveston Avenue with eclectic shops and restaurants. Leave your car at the house and enjoy walking to some of Bend's most popular places!

The Drake West Bungalow was built in 1919 as one of the original homes for the lumber mill workers that populated the area during that time. It has been totally restored and remodeled with 'green' efficiency building in mind, but the house still perfectly reflects the classic charm of its era. This one bedroom bungalow is perfect for those wishing to be within a beautiful stroll to the park, river, downtown Bend, and the popular west side where you can enjoy everything from quaint bakeries to superb restaurants, unique galleries to seasonal festivals, bike and recreation equipment rental shops, and not to mention some of the greatest microbreweries in the country-- all right outside the front door. The Drake West Bungalow is the perfect place to have all of Bend right at your fingertips.

Enjoy one private bedroom with California King bed, one full bathroom, living room with flat screen TV and DVD player, additional sleeping available on a pull out sofa bed, fully stocked kitchen with everything you need, free high speed wireless internet, washer and dryer, outdoor BBQ and deck. We include two cruiser bikes at the house for you to use while our guests. There is also a hot tub in the private yard for a relaxing end to a busy Central Oregon day.

The Drake West Bungalow is the perfect home for your Bend getaway. It is centrally located to everything you want to access in Bend, but is private with its fully fenced backyard area and private off street parking. Come be our guests to truly experience this wonderful area!

Nothing but the DRAKE , for goodness sake!

  • 5 of 5

The thing that amazes me most was how simple this was to have such a fantastic Bend vacation! The booking process with Erin at Homespun Vacations was so easy and professional and quick. When we arrived in Bend there was special designated off-street parking spot and then A "no key hassle" -----we punched in our secret code and were in....then took the bungalow tour before even unloading the car. One room just drew us into the next---so cute, so complete, so comfortable and so clean. As our stay progressed we discovered all the happy local places within a 2 block walk, great bike riding on the cruisers, dining that was beyond the pale, and 10 Barrel Brew Co. just 2 blocks away. We floated the river from the Old Mill to Drake Park, had a great hike around Green lake, slept in and dined out. We go home very rested, very grateful, and very happy campers! Many thanks!!! We will be back!

Stay at the "Drake"!

My wife, dog and I very much enjoyed your lovely home. It was perfect for us, very clean and comfortable and everything that we needed for our trip. The location, fenced in yard, amenities and off street parking were excellent.It was very quiet and we slept well. We would like to come back in the fall and plan to stay at the "Drake"!

Sweet Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Seriously. I can’t imagine a more perfect introduction to Bend than The Drake West Bungalow in West Bend. It is cozy and comfortable and filled with light. During our stay in June we checked out some of the amazing local eateries and breweries (all within 3 blocks). When we decided to eat-in, we did the 5-minute walk to the neighborhood butcher shop and produce stand and then made use of the great kitchen and BBQ grill. The neighborhood is quiet and great for walking morning and evening, with midday strolls with the dog to Drake Park at Mirror Pond. We made good use of the bungalow’s two cruiser bikes, which were perfect for rides into downtown and along the river. The bungalow was very clean and well appointed. We loved our stay and will be back soon.

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Bend just in time for the first winter snowstorm, and our toddler enjoyed her first sledding adventure at Drake Park. This cute house is adorable, well-appointed, and in a great neighborhood. It's a quick walk to the gorgeous park and even quicker to a wonderful food cart and nice restaurants. The hot tub was the perfect escape on the chilly evenings. Can't wait to go back again!

Best rental in Bend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed every aspect of our vacation in Bend. This house is the perfect property. We loved how easy it was to walk or bike to restaurants and breweries around town. The house had every amenity we look for when renting a house; bonus points for the house growler and bikes! We made good use of them during our stay. I would recommend this property for just about anyone. Bend is heavenly.

Wonderful place and people!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Drake West Bungalow! It's a very nice house with a great layout and fenced backyard. Incredibly convenient location a block from the river, a few minutes' walk from downtown, and just down the street from The Lot and other popular Galveston eateries. We made good use of the two town bikes included with the rental. The icing on the cake was that Erin and Lisa (the property managers) were soooo accommodating and easy to work with. I highly recommend this rental and property management company!
