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.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property filled with wonderfully homey touches. We loved the repurposed furniture, the antique treasures and the fabulous style of this home. Its central location and proximity to Mirror Pond and downtown make it a great choice while in Bend. Since this was a work trip with little time to enjoy the outside, I am definitely going to come back with my family for a second chance to enjoy this lovely home.

We stayed here for a family wedding - what a fantastic location and lovely home. Comfy and loaded with everything you could want or need. Decorated with love - it's so charming! The host was totally flexible with our needs to check in a little early and leave a little late ... if I ever find myself in Bend in the future, would definitely stay here again!

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.
