Space 640 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Open space, large decks, mountain views, quiet street, walk everywhere, Sauna

The Shasta Loft is a favorite for its downtown location in Bend, Oregon. A one bedroom and one bathroom 650 square foot "loft" situated on a very quiet street above a two car garage with a washer and dryer and private access is a fully equipped Bend vacation rental. The Loft is very open, light and bright with vaulted ceilings and skylights throughout which offers cozy comfort for two. The new hotel grade hide-a-bed in livingroom can increase occupancy by 2 adults or 2 kids. Ideal for couples or young families with kids aged 5+. The main bedroom has a new 100% natural latex (March 2017) mattress from Organic Sleeping Products.

Relax after a long day of recreating in Bend in the authentic scandinavian outdoor barrel sauna. The sauna is privately located in the back yard and seats two people comfortably. Extra bathrobes and towels provided.

Shasta Loft has beautiful sunset views of the Cascade Mountain Range and the charm of the quiet and private Old Bend neighborhood from the front deck with your morning coffee or sipping a glass of wine while gazing at the sunset!

Enter upon hardwood floors and granite counter tops in the fully equipped kitchen with a four burner gas range and breakfast bar for two as well as a rich dark brown tall cafe table and two chairs. Right off of the kitchen is an additional large deck with patio seating for four and gas barbeque grill.

The living room features a sofa sleeper, gas fireplace, flat screen television, Blu-ray player, Bose stereo sound system and a small deck with seating for two with mountain views. Cross ventilation combined with a ceiling fans provide maximum airflow throughout the open floor plan.

A queen master bedroom with skylight and a fully tiled roomy bathroom make this a perfect spot for quick getaways or extended stays when visiting downtown Bend.

A very short 8 minute walk takes you to Downtown Bend for all of the fine dining, breweries, restaurants and boutique shopping as well as Drake Park which lines the Deschutes River. In the other direction is the same easy 8 minute walk to the Old Mill District for movie theatres, shopping, dining and the Les Schwab Amphitheatre for concerts and events. Take a sunset stroll along the Deschutes River, which is only three blocks away.

Shasta Loft is only 25 minutes from Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort!

Great Getaway for Two!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed at the Shasta Loft for a weekend getaway and really enjoyed it. The loft was very comfortable, especially for such a small place. It didn't actually feel that small, perhaps due to the high ceilings and natural light.

We enjoyed being able to walk shops & restaurants. The neighborhood has lots of character so it was fun to see all the different houses and yards on our walks to and from town.

We would recommend this place and we'd stay here again. It was clean and comfortable.

great kitchen; good views

  • 5 of 5

Best equipped kitchen we found so far with VRBO---lots of pots and pans and glasses and dishes and even a coffee grinder. Had my daughter and her family over for dinner one night and they kept coming over for breakfast. One day we went out grocery shopping and when we came back our granddaughter was there watching a movie and then she left and our son-in-law came and corrected some students' work there. You could see the mountains from the living room when it wasn't raining.

Clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Close to the river and downtown. Quiet neighborhood. Great walking opportinities. Nice neighbors. Apartment has well appointed kitchen, comfortable bed with nice pillows, cozy couch. The balcony is nice for morning tea. All we needed for our weekend in Bend. Only suggestion to owners: light switch for entry not two way so stair climb to apartment is dark if you arrive late. Otherwise...great place. We will use again. Thanks!

Great loft in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Such a great loft with everything you need! Comfy bed, great deck with BBQ, well-stocked kitchen, and heaps of space. Easy walking distance to the river, downtown, and all of Bend's best breweries. Fab neighbourhood restaurant Jacksons Corner is close by, as is Market of Choice supermarket.

Car: not necessary

In the heart of Historic Old Bend. Walking distance to major attractions including Downtown Bend, Old Mill District, Miller Park, McKay Park, Drake Park and Deschutes River. In the winter, Shasta Loft is a perfect location for all alpine sports including downhill skiing, Snowboarding and Cross Country Skiing. Mt. Bachelor ski resort is 20 minute drive away. Summers are ideal for enjoying many of the nearby mountain lakes, 'floating' down the Deschutes River or simply enjoy many of the local craft beers such as 10 Barrel Brewing, Goodlife Brewing, Boneyard Brewery and many more. Crux Fermentation Project has the best sunset in town and great boutique beers. Mt. Biking is some of the best in Oregon and easy ride to trail head. I enjoy the Deschutes River trail for mountain biking.
