About Ian and Kristy Haworth

Hi! We are Ian and Kristy Haworth and we have have been married over 18 years. We have lived here in beautiful Bend for over 20 years and are raising our two teenagers, Clay and Shay. We both moved here from sunny Southern California and are no stranger to resort living lifestyles. We love to work hard and play hard!

We love to paddle board on the river, ski at Mt. Bachelor in the winter and everything in between.

Ian and Kristy Haworth purchased this house in 1996

Why Ian and Kristy Haworth chose Old Bend

This 1920's home was built at the time of the lumber mill on the river just south of the house. Many homes around us are actually old train cars put together by the mill workers to live in. Ian's parents live on the river right down the street and theirs is this type. Incredible history lie within these streets. Truly where the center of town began! We have had the privilege of owning this home since 1996 and is where we lived when we first got married. Sweet memories live in this home! And now, it is waiting for you to enjoy and build your memories!

What makes this house unique

There is no place like this area to live and to vacation! Most people don't use their vehicles to get around. Even in the winter it is fun to bundle up and walk to breakfast around the corner or to take the path to the Old Mill for a movie or concert. Everyone is friendly in the neighborhood. A smile and wave everywhere you go!

Wonderful place, great location and just as described!

  • 5 of 5

First trip to Bend and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay!!! We were able to park and walk everywhere! Close to downtown and old mill and minutes to the perfect spot to float the river! The house is charming and clean and the owners were GREAT! Can't wait to go back.

We just got back from a great stay in Bend. This home was the perfect homebase for all our Bend adventures. Couldn't ask for a better location! Owners were SO nice to work with and very accommodating. Loved the fenced in yard! Thank you so much!

Perfect location and well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

Steps from the whitewater play park and steps from play structures at Columbia park bothe the Big (as in parents) and little kids were happy. The storage shed was great for all of our gear and the little house had everything we needed. It was probably the most well equipped VRBO I’ve stayed in. I am hoping to come back and take further advantage of this no car needed little retreat.

Excellent location, perfect size

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here last October. The location was awesome—we walked to pubs on Galveston across the bridge and were close to downtown and Old Mill. We just had a weekend there, but I would stay here again for a longer trip as well!
