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.

Bend Summer 2018
Perfect rental for a great time in Bend
The rental was great. The house was a perfect getaway place for the three of us, within a few block were a grocery store, brew pubs, restaurants, and the Drake Park. Within a mile and walkable was downtown Bend. We used the fire pit in the back yard two nights and the grill once (two very nice features to have). Definitely would stay here again.
"Heart of NW Bend" Cottage experience exceeds its description!
The cottage hosts have thought of everything: from the well-stocked kitchen to the well-stocked bookshelves, lovely + relaxing decor (very thoughtfully decorated and furnished). Spotless too. As others have reported, the backyard is a wonderful, sunny extension of the home and well-landscaped. The spacious garage was a nice surprise. The hosts have a generous collection of books and pamphlets about the area. Strong wifi. It truly is a "walk everywhere" site in a residential neighborhood right on the river. We felt welcome as soon as we opened the front door (maybe even before because the cottage is as charming as the picture shows). We stayed here with our young adult son + young puppy on our first but not last visit to Bend. We will return.
The location is amazing. The owner was very responsive.
The house is older but very clean. We enjoyed the location as it was walkable to restaurants and coffee shops. Just across the street from Drake Park.
Lovely home, treasured tenderly by owner.
The house was clean and well appointed. The mattresses need to be replaced. They are a little tired. At least they were too squishy for me. I like a firm mattresses. The back yard and back porch are ideal for family visiting . The fire pit is great for the chilly Bend evenings. Overall we had a pleasant stay. Thank you.
Beautiful House and Yard
We enjoyed staying in your house. It is so close to all of the things that we enjoy in Bend. The back yard is great for family time (fires in the fire pit etc.).
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.
