The Drake Club has quite the history. During the remodel of what we thought was just upgrading an old garage we discovered that it dated back prior to the main house and had all the utilities for a second dwelling. Once we started we couldn't stop. Finding huge timber as side beams, layers and layers of wallpaper, endless nails larger then any normal persons pinky we decided lets make this something special to share. 500 sq ft full of elegance, quality and warmth. Ash wainscoting, venetian plaster, travertine flooring, ebony wrapped beams and solid counter tops, rare Turkish sandstone in shower and flooring, cedar bathroom, and high end appliances. A Dovre gas fireplace to warm up next to after a long day skiing and a washer and dryer to clean those stinky mtn bike clothes. Great patio space with private fenced backyard and a gas bbq. We offer you to enjoy what we enjoy about living in Bend; we will provide at a small charge, Paddle boards, Crusier Bikes, Kayaks, Rafting, and Brewery Tours.

I was born and raised in Bend, and my family’s history goes back almost as far as The Drake Club's. Grandma and Grandpa Kelley moved to bend looking for adventures; they started a cattle farm east of town. They were skilled farmers but better Real Estate Agents. Settling in town to raise my father who carried their legacy in real estate. Once he graduated high school he purchased the Columbia house aka The Drake Club. Fast forward 40ish years here I am. Coming back to my home town after college was one of the easiest decision I have ever made. I love this place. Every day I enjoy what the high desert has to offer. I am an avid fisherwoman, paddle boarder, mtn biker, skier and horse rider.
Katey purchased this Cottage in 1970
Why Katey chose River West
Maybe my Father held on to this property because it was a good investment, I like to think it was because it captures you. It is a small lot with lots of charm. It has an all to familiar beat that goes right with Bend's heart.
What makes this Cottage unique
You will be given the opportunity to live like a local when you stay at The Drake Club. High end finishes with elegant touches. Walk/bike Downtown, use household equipment at a small charge, (paddleboards, kayaks, bikes).
The location is very central for walking to restaurants, parks but in a quiet location. The space is just perfect for 1-2 people. The talent and detail into the space is incredible and very cozy! We will be coming back for sure!
Location, location, location to downtown Bend.
A great tiny house experience. Katey was very responsive to our questions regarding how to turn on the stove that heats the home (very important as the cooler weather is upon us!) The parking off street and privacy a plus for us. I think the Fall Special of $75/night is quite reasonable.

Easy walk to everything you need
Great place that fit all my needs. Perfect little kitchen to make my own meals. Yet close enough to a bunch of other great food options.
Quiet, cozy, comfortable get away
We had a great stay, every amenity you could ever need is at you fingertips. Very cozy fireplace kept us warm on a chilly night, bed was very comfortable, and a very quiet relaxing get away from "regular" life. We will definitely stay here again and again!
Perfect for our needs.
This quaint and cozy abode was perfect for what we needed. I wish we had time to utilize all that was available for making meals. They didn't seem to be lacking anything in the kitchen, right on down to the fresh lemon and lime for our use when we arrived. Situated right near the river and parks and downtown Bend, you could walk everywhere if you wanted. We certainly appreciated the craftsmanship that went into making this place special! There were absolutely no hassles whatsoever in renting, all went smooth as could be, very pleased.
