About the Property

1100+ Sq Ft, 2 Bedroom 1 Bath Home

Built in 1919, the L'il Oar House is classic Bend with style and comfort.

Centrally located one block from the Deschutes River in the Old Bend neighborhood. The neighborhood is an eclectic mix of old-style Bend homes and new modern ones.

It is an easy walk to downtown, the Old Mill, and the restaurants and shops on Galveston and Newport avenues.

This 1100+ sq foot bungalow is spacious and well kept.
The kitchen is well equipped, easy to cook in, and has counter-height bar seating for two. The dining room table sits under a large skylight and seats up to six. Relaxing after a big day in the living room is easy. There's a large flat-screen TV and plenty of comfy seating.

The Li'l Oar House has nice outdoor spaces as well, including a pergola to keep you shaded when the summer sun really heats up. 2 cruiser bikes are included to round out your stay.

There is driveway parking, a mud room in the home to store boots, etc. as well as a separate clean storage shed in the fenced backyard for bikes, skis and paddle boards.

We live nearby and are always available via cell or in person to help make your stay as perfect as possible.

Walk (or float) everywhere from this central downtown location -- Drake Park, Columbia Park, Harmon Park, the Old Mill District, 10 Barrels Brewery, Jackson's Corner, Riverside Market, downtown, you name it! Make your stay easy!

Linens and towels are included. Although we love our furry friends, please no pets.
