Welcome to our highly walkable neighborhood.
Enjoy the hospitality of one of Bend's family-owned, micro businesses on a peaceful street in a carefully-renovated, 1922, west side bungalow. This homey abode, named for the Westlakes, 60-year residents of the house, blends new furnishings and finishes with old time character and charm. The large lot boasts gorgeous lilacs, honeysuckle and iris blooming in spring, a wild butterfly garden in summer, and plenty of room for snow men and snow forts in the winter. A great house for out-of-town grandparents visiting family in the area. The Westlake Cottage is located north of Portland Ave on NW 3rd St.
The house can sleep up to 6 people in two bedrooms with queen-sized beds in each (new 'NovoPure' mattresses for 2014) and a full-sized futon couch in a semi-private family room, but 4-5 adults is probably more comfortable. A gas fireplace makes the living room cozy in winter. Summer sun makes the whole house cheery.
The First Street Rapids on the Deschutes River (a great place to swim on hot summer days) is a short (four block) walk from the Westlake Cottage. From the Rapids you can follow the River Trail downstream for miles along a well marked path.
A ten minute walk will get you downtown to enjoy brewpubs, fine restaurants, antique stores and, of course, Goody's old-fashioned ice cream parlor.
