About the property

Newly remodled Cottage in the historic Parks Section.

Make this cottage your home base to enjoy Central Oregon year around or hunker down with a good book and an enjoy this sweet, peaceful space. Light, open floor plan and private patio provide seclusion yet you are steps away from downtown and Drake Park. King in bedroom and Queen bed in loft are high quality chosen to assure a good night's rest. The sofa converts into an incredibly comfortable double bed as well. There is a full bath in the house. The newly remodeled second bathroom is located in the detached garage. Private patio provides for outdoor dining with gas BBQ grill and propane fire pit. Although fine and funky dining abounds in downtown Bend & the Old Mill District, our kitchen provides all you'll ever need to prepare meals in house. You are blocks away from downtown and the river. Skiing, golf, mountain biking, water sports, hikes are nearby for all you outdoor enthusiasts. Or simply leave your car parked (off street parking and garage available) and walk or ride one of the cruiser bikes available to our guests. Tubes and Kayak available to enjoy the river. My guess is you will keep coming back to this property when travel plans bring you to our little piece of paradise. The cottage is located behind the garage next to the main house. A hidden gem close to all the action yet secluded and peaceful. This property is not suitable for toddlers and young children due to the open staircase and loft area. If you need additional space a 1 bedroom apartment is available in the main house. VRBO listing 849942.

Sorry, No pets.

About Juliana Panchura

Love brought me to Bend in 1988. 25+ years later I am still in love (with my husband) as well as this remarkable town and surroundings. Originally from Pittsburgh, PA (Go Steelers!) I came west to go to school (UCLA) and made new roots in the Pacific Northwest. Work takes me frequently to LA where I work with kids with cleft lip and palates, creating smiles. Locally, I run a clinic where my patients volunteer in the community to help pay for their orthodontic treatment. Smile! Central Oregon is were you will find me when I am in town and not enjoying this area as I am sure you will.

Juliana Panchura purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Juliana Panchura chose Drake Park

Good fortune and fate found this property for me. The previous owner of this gem was headed off to the Caribbean. Having invested 40 years to restoring this historic property, we are so grateful he entrusted us with its stewardship. Listed in the National Historical Register, the main house served as the first maternity hospital in this region from 1919-1934. It was converted into apartments and the basement unit served as the dance studio where Tommy taught ballroom dance with his partner Barb for many years. Most ballroom dancers here in Central Oregon benefited from Tommy and Barb's love of dance and weekly lessons at the Elk's Club. My office manager now lives onsite, and, as a recent transplant from Ohio, is eager to make you feel at home and share some of her suggestions for an unforgettable vacation in Central Oregon.

What makes this cottage unique

I fell in love with this property the moment I stepped inside. It had been restored with such care and attention to detail. I furnished it with all the things I would want in a home: comfortable beds, great pots and pans, big screen TV, and internet access for work and entertainment. Patio dining with a gas grill when you want to stay put for the evening. Enjoy the amazing night sky while keeping warm around the fire pit.

Comfortable and close to River Walk

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights. Bed was comfortable, Bathroom was clean and roomy, Kitchen is very well equipped and open to dining area and TV area. Unit is very close to the River Walk and downtown. The bikes were a great amenity! Great to have a garage! Don't worry about it being on the same property as the main house. It is very private. We will stay here again next time we are in Bend.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We all loved everything about this place and want to come back again. From the big windows to the comfortable beds to the fire pit, we had a great experience . Our only complaint was the ice maker not producing any ice. Thank you for making everything so easy for your guests by supplying necessities and instructions for operating the tv and fire pit...

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved the home ... quiet, comfortable, interesting layout, very clean with a lovely private patio and garage. It is in a great location ... a block from the river and park, and just a couple minutes walk to restaurants and shopping. There are bikes and other toys in the garage to use. Our only disappointment is we didn't have more time.

Fantastic location!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay couldn't have been better! There were 6 adults, 1 toddler and the accommodations were great. The location was probably the best part. Drake park and Mirror Pond are right across the street (you can see it from the garage) and getting to downtown was a 5 minute walk. We completely lucked out with a Pink Floyd cover band concert one night, then an antique car show the next 2 days (even though a wedding brought us here). We could listen/watch from the garage or walk across the street to join in. The house was very clean, comfortable, and has an awesome, private patio. Everything you need is right there; lawn chairs, bikes, cooler, tubes, cookware, and picnic supplies. Now we are deciding when we are going to book here next!!
