About Michael

We walk everywhere and everything is just blocks away from this cottage. If you want to get out of Bend, Mt. Bachelor, lakes, hiking and mountain bike trails are all just a half hour away or less. Kayaking and floating the river are literally out the front door. Almost every weekend has a festival and/or live music in town.

Michael purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Michael chose Old Bend

There are few locations in the heart of Bend that are so centrally located to everything. It is in a charming neighborhood of older homes and every Wednesday during the summer is the farmer's market just a 5 minute walk. Thursday evenings include Munch n Music concerts in the park. Bakeries, pubs, restaurants, food carts, groceries and bike shop are a few blocks away.

What makes this cottage unique

This updated cottage was built in 1939. It has a large atic space that was converted to a master bedroom with it's own private bath, office/computer work station that looks out over the neighborhood with a peek of the river. Back yard is wonderfully private with a small fire pit, and gas barbeque. Bring your bike, kayak, and paddle board.

Wonderful home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here. The house was very clean. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was very well supplied for making meals. The house was as described, no surprises. We would definitely stay here again if we were to come back to Bend. We were vacationing with our family. The fact that the playground was almost directly across the street was a huge hit as well as the fact that the back yard was fenced in. Drake Park was a very short walk and another nice place to spend time with our grandson. Being walking distance to some of the local breweries was another plus for some of the adults.

Perfect home close to downtown Bend!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best weekend! The house was clean and fully stocked. The location couldn’t have been better for walking to downtown. The backyard was perfect for evening fires and visiting. We will definitely be back!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This spacious home complete with REAL fireplace provided us a cozy yet good size retreat. Fire wood was abundant in the garage. The location couldn't be better as it's right across the street from the park. We had a few issues and the owners were right on it. They are extremely nice people and really wanted us to have a wonderful time and not want for anything. A minor thing I mention is that they could check their household (kitchen and bathroom) supplies before guests arrive to make sure they don't run out.

Ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! It was everything we needed for four adults and one child. The location was perfect for walking into town and for heading up to Mt. Bachelor.

When we visit Bend next, we will be checking to see if this house is available.

Incredible downtown location with Harmon and Drake Park across the street, pubs, restaurants, Newport Market, Bend festivals, and The Les Schwab Amphitheater a short walk/bike ride from the front door. The center of downtown Bend is a 5 minute walk. For families, the kids park is across the street and the downtown library is awesome..or walk over to Cuppa Yo for a great yogurt sundae.
