About the Property

Bend's WestSide: Walk & Dine. Ride & Drink. Shop & Soak. Vacation Like a Local!

Location! Location! Location! Beat the traffic to Mt. Bachelor for first tracks! Walk to Bend’s premiere art, shopping, dining, drinking, and nightlife. Bike Phil's Trail from the house. Catch a concert and take a soak in the hot tub!

Welcome home! Relax in our two queen suites. Take a bubble bath in the claw foot tub or lounge in the hot tub as your dog enjoys the fenced yard. Then snuggle up with a movie on the 54” LCD flat screen. This 1918 vintage Bend Bungalow has it all.

Ready for a Microbrew? Book a Cycle Pub for the Ale Trail (don't forget to download the app). Walk 2 minutes to your pick up and drop off point at 10 Barrel Brewing. Then fill your growler anywhere on Galveston and never have to worry about driving.

Whether you're riding chairs at bachelor, earning your turns on Tumalo, skate skiing at the nordic center, snowshoeing or snowmobiling, you're only one turn away from your destination the moment you pull out the driveway. In the summer, grab the rafts and float the river! Run out the front door and be on the river trail in 5 minutes. Walk to outdoor concerts at Les Schwab amphitheater. Don't forget golf, fishing, kayaking, ice skating...Whatever you do enjoy, The Bendite Bungalow puts you right in the middle of all the action.

Do you like to cook? Our fully equipped kitchen and patio barbecue await. Walk two blocks and shop for locally raised, sustainable meats at Primal Cuts and fresh, organic vegetables at the Paradise Produce Stand.

Prefer Dining out? Check out the restaurants on Galveston Avenue (1 block North). For brunch, enjoy Bend’s best Eggs Benedict and Bloody Mary's at The Victorian Cafe. Grab lunch on the go at The Lot where you can choose from a multitude of award winning food carts. Dinner? Ariana boasts Bend's best fine dining; Brother Jon’s offers hearty buffalo mac and cheese and don't forget Jefe’s famous fish tacos at Parilla. Don't miss Ida’s Cupcakes or Dakine Grindz. There's always room for dessert!

Your four-legged family member will love the 5 block jaunt to swim in the cool mountain water of the Deschutes River and the 1.7 acre off-leash area in the Overtuf Butte Park 3 blocks to the West.

Indulge your spirit: drop in for a class or workshop at Namaspa, Central Oregon’s only Baptiste affiliate Yoga studio. Schedule a massage upstairs and follow up with a cold-pressed organic juice made with local produce at Mother’s Juice Café.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: I grew up in a small town a couple hours North of Bend. We spent holidays at a family home in Sisters. I love the area. When a wilderness therapy company opened in Bend in 2005, I jumped at the opportunity to return. I spent six years living out of a backpack working with troubled youth East of Bend. My connection with the area grew stronger and I committed to staying in the area. After going back to school at OSU, I founded a nonprofit where I serve as the Executive Director.

Why the Owner Chose River West, Bend, OR, USA:
I rented the house across the street. Literally. When the houses around me became vacation rentals, I adopted the motto: "Live where you vacation." I love the location. I can ride my bike to Phil's trail, beat the traffic up the hill to Bachelor, walk my dog to Drake park, run from my front door through the Old Mill to the River Trail and eat at my favorite restaurants. The Victorian has best brunch in Bend. Brother Jon's Buffalo Mac is my comfort food. Parilla's blackened salmon wrap gets me through those times when there's just too much going on to find time to cook. I teach yoga at Namaspa, two blocks West of the house and love being able to walk to class and avoid the parking at 10 barrel. I bought the house because I've lived here for 10 years and this address gives me the highest quality of life I could have.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, location, location. You won't have to drive or deal with parking. With the bike's, you can be anywhere within 8 minutes. You don't have to worry about drinking and driving. Your legs will be warm by the time you hit the trail at Phil's. You can walk to the river, yoga, food options...
