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.

Great location, comfortable home, lovely setting
We loved our stay in the heart of Bend in this great home. The Westside location is central to downtown as well as all the attractions on the Westside. The furnishings are comfortable and we can't wait to come back and use the outside patio. We especially enjoyed coffee on the sun porch.
Thank you for a great VRBO experience.
Great location; Great house
We have rented a lot of houses in Bend over the years and this is definitely one of our favorites. The location can't be beat. On the west side, walking distance to some of our favorites brew pubs, restaurants and markets on the west side and also to downtown. Drake park is a short walk away and our dog loves to go on his morning walks there.
The house is charming -- an older design with lots of modern touches. A very nice kitchen, which is a must for us, is modern and well-stocked. The bedroooms are big and comfortable. We stayed during the winter so didn't get to use the sunroom or the back porch much, but they would be great in Spring, Summer or Fall. A big garage where you can keep your car and all the toys to enjoy Bend with. We will definitely stay here again.
Cozy place. Perfect location.
Enjoyed our stay. The locationcouslnt be better w easy access to downtown, NW Galvaston and the mountain. Place was well equipped, warm and cozy and more than comfortable for 2 couples and a teen.
Wonderful vacation. Highly recommend!
Great location, as advertised
This is our favorite area of Bend, and the house is ideally situated for great eating and access to town. We liked the house a lot, had everything we needed/wanted. We agreed we need to return in summer when the full experience on offer can be enjoyed. Many thanks!
Perfection by the POND
My wife, myself and our Golden Retriever just spent five wonderful nights at the Old Bend house on Harmon. The accommodations, location and amenities could not have been more perfect. A short walk across the footbridge and your just steps away from the beautiful park and all that old town has to offer. Our son and Granddaughter live in Bend and we've been visiting the area for the past 35 years. The Old Bend House is at the top of the list of the dozens of homes we have rented in the past. Another bonus along with the comfort of this home is the use of the garage. That makes a big difference when your visiting in the Fall & Winter. This is the perfect home in the perfect location and we highly recommend it to anyone planning a visit to central Oregon.
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.
