About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Westside Home Blocks From Downtown Bend. New Hot Tub!

Our vacation rental is a two-level home with a king bed in the master upstairs and two twin beds in the downstairs room, plus a pull out queen sofa bed. It features a fully equipped kitchen, BBQ on the back deck, and a front deck overlooking the quiet neighborhood. We also have air conditioning, and a hot tub just off the back deck.

From here you are only blocks from the downtown core and all of the restaurants and shops that can be found there. Our home is also within easy walking distance of more than 5 of Bend's famous brew pubs (and many more if you are up for a little more than an easy stroll). It's also easy to head for the river, or hit the road to Mount Bachelor for skiing in the winter. Come home and warm up by the gas fireplace, or walk two blocks to enjoy the famous soaking pool at the McMenamin's St. Francis School.

One note! If you are planning to have a big, rowdy (bachelor? bachelorette?) party, please look for another location. Our home is in a residential neighborhood, and if there is much noise past 10 PM the neighbors will call the police.

About Amy and Aaron Tarnow

Michael and Terry live in Traverse City, Michigan but have come to love Bend, and visit often to see their son daughter in law and two grandchildren.

Amy and Aaron Tarnow purchased this house in 2013

Why Amy and Aaron Tarnow chose Old Bend

While visiting, Michael enjoys many outdoor pursuits, top among them road biking and nordic skiing. Terry enjoys art galleries, museums and shopping. This home is the perfect jumping off point for both of them, and also has space to entertain the family.

What makes this house unique

We wanted a home that was within easy walking distance of the things that make Bend special. This is the perfect place. We have endeavored to provide you with all of the comforts of home; the furnishings are almost all new, matching, in good condition and of good quality. There are complete sets of dishes and glassware. Please help us keep the house looking new.

Clean and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The hosts Aaron and Amy were really easy to reach and hospitable. It was so convenient, walking distance to downtown and quick drive to the old mill district. We hope to come again!

Great place to stay minutes from downtown Bend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over President's day weekend to ski @ Mount Bachelor. We loved the place and the location. It was an easy drive from here to Mount Bachelor and within walking distance of downtown Bend. We'd happily stay here again

Super fun weekend!

  • 4 of 5

The house really is in great location. Everything is clean and well stocked. We felt very comfortable and at home in this cute house. The only complaint is that the hot tub was way to cold to use but we adjusted the temp and enjoyed it on our last night. It's a very nice hot tub! I'd stay here again and recomed this home to others.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfectly located for a fun Bend weekend. The house was very well maintained and comfortably slept 4 adults. Hot tub was clean, spacious and plenty hot - nice to come home to after 2 tough days on the golf course!
