About the property

Two bedroom, Two bath, with cruiser bikes and large garage, pet friendly

Cute Craftsman in the quiet River West area two blocks from the Deschutes River at First Street Rapids park. An easy 5 minute walk to downtown or take the river trail for a nice stroll or bike cruise anytime. Enjoy all that downtown has to offer: shops, galleries, restaurants or head out to to Bend's famous breweries or mountain bike trails. The Deschutes River with Drake Park, hiking and biking trails, kayaking and tubing are just a short walk away and Mt. Bachelor ski resort is only a 30 minute drive. Your stay includes the use of two cruiser bikes with helmets and locks, a perfect way to explore the area. In the winter, you'll appreciate the large garage to store your skis, fat bikes, snowshoes and to keep your car ready to go! We also provide riding and hiking maps of the area and would be happy to suggest riding trails that fit your abilities if asked. Bring your kayak and test your skills at First Street Rapids.

The Saginaw home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms so you won't need to share a bathroom-a rare find in original Bend Craftsman homes.

Other amenities include a washer/dryer, large refrigerator, TV with basic cable. The smart TV also has internet capabilities to access your Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime or other subscription services-just log in. Enjoy the Charcoal BBQ and window a/c in the living room during the summer. The master bedroom has a comfortable queen size bed and a private bathroom. The second bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and access to the yard. In the winter months, the beds have down blankets with additional blankets for use if desired. There is a desk in the office area in case you need to bring your work with you. There is free high speed wireless internet available for use during your stay.

In the warm months, enjoy the outside seating area and BBQ. The organic garden might have something to harvest during your stay!

The Saginaw Home is kept immaculately clean for all our guests. Well trained dogs that are kept off the furniture during their stay are welcome.

Please check our calendar for available nights. Come be our guests and have fun in Bend!

About Pat Mullen

Bend has something for everyone! We're avid mountain bikers and skiers and love great beer as well. The hiking and biking trails, river and friendly people make Bend a truly unique place and it's perfect for adventurous people.

Pat Mullen purchased this house in 2012

Why Pat Mullen chose River Terrace

I fell in love with this craftsman home back in 2012. It needed a little TLC but I knew that I would love the location. I can walk to work, downtown or go running on the river trail within minutes. There is always room to park and it is quiet in the evenings. The neighbors are wonderful. The house is kept very clean which is extremely important to me!

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! This home is close to downtown and the river but without the parking headaches and noise of the Historic District or Galveston area.

Third great stay in Saginaw House

  • 5 of 5

We have a tradition now of spending the month of August in Bend and Saginaw House has absolutely become our first choice place! Pat has created and provided a home that meets our wants and needs so well.

The house is so easy to move into, with good closets (plenty of hangers), bureau space, comfy sofas in the good living space, equipped kitchen, laundry, office space that we find very useful, good wifi, the bonus of nice garage space, vegetable garden, grill... The nicely shaded back patio is inviting all day long and into the evening with patio lights. Saginaw House's location is so great. We can walk to many things we need and are interested in. Within walking range? So many restaurants and brew pubs, Drake Park, First Street Rapids and its trail, downtown, grocery shopping at Newport Market and Farmer's Market and access to Deschutes River activities. Getting onto to highways to travel further afield is very convenient. Visiting Bend is such a pleasure for all its varied activities and Saginaw House is in the perfect location to easily access so many of them.

The few times we've needed to contact Pat with a request, she responds quickly and positively. Simply put...we love staying in Saginaw House!

Wonderful cozy convenient place in Bend

  • 5 of 5

This house is so convenient, well-appointed, and comfortable! We've stayed here a few times as a couple plus dog. It is 2 blocks to the lovely river path, and about 10 minutes pleasant walk to downtown, in a neat older Bend neighborhood with interesting houses. There are two very comfortable bedrooms, two baths, and the kitchen has everything needed. Host Pat is very accommodating and communicative, and there are wonderful thoughtful touches welcoming both humans and dogs. This last winter visit there was a little less snow, so we focused on the High Desert Museum and amazing Pine Nursery dog park, and food, and relaxing in this comfortable home base.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you and of course your pup, Cooper, had another great stay in Bend. This winter has certainly been a huge change from last years storms so I'm happy to see that you were still able to have fun with Bend's current lack of snow. Looking foward to hosting you all again on your next visit.

Great location, clean, affordable

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for just under a week at the Saginaw house and were very satisfied. The house had everything we needed and the location was ideal for taking our dogs on walks on the river trail. The fenced-in yard was convenient, too. Pat, the owner, provided a nice bottle of beer and some dog treats upon our arrival.

The only thing we'd change is the softness of the furniture. We're firm furniture folks, preferring beds and sofas on the firmer side. The beds here are very soft, as are the sofas. That being said, we'd still consider staying here again, as it's hard to find good, clean, and affordable dog-friendly rentals in Bend, and this one is also in a great location.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a nice stay and appreciate your feedback on the furniture softness. I do plan on changing the sofas to something easier to clean in the future however the furniture is still rather new. I've received only compliments up to this point on the beds so I think that the softness works for most guests. Thanks so much for your feedback, I appreciate your suggestions.

Comfy, great location and dog 🐕 friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in the River Terrace 🏡?! Comfortable accommodations, super dog friendly with an enclosed back yard and a secure garage. We had a great thanksgiving dinner 🍗?🍷?🍾?🦃?. Lots of room to cook dinner for 6 and have a sit down feast! Pat was very accommodating and helpful. We hope to return in the Spring when our daughter and son in law have their first child!
