About Susan Battles

I have lived on the Westside of Bend for the past 26 years where I have raised my kids, worked and enjoyed all the adventures Bend has to offer. This is a very special home full of great memories. Come and create your own memories in our home.

Susan Battles purchased this house in 1996

Why Susan Battles chose River West

This location is hard to beat. It is a lovely large treed lot overlooking Drake Park and Mirror Pond. Wonderful outdoor spaces that you will want to relax in for hours to come. This home has been a wonderful place for both friends and family to gather over the past 21 years

What makes this house unique

Location location location!!! I think you will enjoy the warm fun eclectic decor this home has to offer. This home lives large with its big windows and outdoor living areas. While right in the heart of Bend it is still a very quiet home. It's the best of both worlds.

Great stay and terrific location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The location was perfect and we were able to walk to a ton of locations. We spent most of our time outside on the deck or patio and the space was great. My son especially loved the location with two playgrounds so close to the house!

Great house, great location and several great amenities

  • 5 of 5

This house was great from the start, beautifully and interestingly furnished. Perfect for families with elementary school children and older, and girls’ or guys’ weekend. Made use of fire pit, back porch rockers, canoe (but didn’t get to bikes). Kitchen was great with every possible utensil and condiment available. Looks across a small park for a view of the river and lies at start of pedestrian bridge to riverside park adjacent to historic downtown.

Wonderful property in ideal location. Walk across the street to river and park, and a few blocks to heart of town. Great for groups with lots of outside porch seating. Owner very good to work with.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four couples had a fantastic time here. The location is perfect for going downtown, kayaking on the river or taking any one of the dozens of great hikes nearby. The house is perfect for staying in to eat as well with a better view of the park and river than the pictures show. Stayed five nights...wish it was more. Great owner as well, super responsive.

Awesome stay! Great home, outdoor spaces, and location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is a wonderful, clean, well-maintained, comfortable home and we especially enjoyed the back deck and patio, where we ended up spending most of our time. We enjoyed the many amenities that come with the home, the large BBQ, the fire pit, bicycles, kayaks, and canoe. The back deck and patio overlooks Pageant Park, Mirror Pond, and Drake Park and with a pedestrian bridge just a couple of hundred of feet away making for an easy walk to downtown Bend. I had one question for Susan after arriving and she responded to my message within 2 minutes. I would definitely recommend this VRBO home for anyone visiting Bend.

Bend offers almost every outdoor activity you can imagine. This property is located over looking the Deschutes River and Drake Park. Mirror Pond is steps outside the gate where you can launch your paddle board or kayak. The property has 4 cruiser bikes to ride around town, a canoe to paddle up the river with the kids to the Old Mill and a kayak. Hike the river trail from my home or head out to the mountain bike trails a short ride away.
