About the property

Studio Suite Walk to Downtown and Parks

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.

About Katey

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 Bend

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).

a thanksgiving treat

  • 5 of 5

Totally enjoyed our stay at the Drake. It is a small, well finished unit perfect for a couple visiting the area. It has solid nice finishes, an ample kitchen with full size appliances, nice bbq area in the back(we did not use in the snow), and a terrific central location. Short walk to many places including a great outdoor eating plaza . Look forward to our next stay.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 3 month old son and I rented out the Drake Club for four days. It's in a great location that allows you to walk practically everywhere. It is a small unit but the space is utilized perfectly. The bed was comfortable, ac unit was super handy and the kitchen was beautiful. We loved staying in the studio and will definitely rent it again.

The only possible downfall to the place was the wifi. It wasn't a strong enough connection so I was unable to pick it up within the studio. But that was no big deal.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The Drake Club was great! Really nice little cottage that is well decorated and includes a great kitchen and bathroom. The location is excellent as you are a short walk/bike ride to everything Bend has to offer. The Drake Club is a great little spot in Bend and I would highly recommend it to anyone considering a stay in Bend!

Great Location, Beautiful Decor

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The Drake Club is beautifully decorated with a really nice kitchen and bath. It's perfectly situated for a cycling vacation as there are two bike shops, food carts, breweries, grocery store, restaurants, and a cupcake shop within easy walking distance. We spent our days cycling in the mornings and then walking to the food carts one block away for some tasty refueling. I highly recommend the Cashew Stir Fry from Thailandia. The owners were really nice and I would highly recommend The Drake Club.
