Unsurpassed combination of charm and location, this legendary cottage will create an experience long remembered.
It’s no wonder this bustling location earns a Walk Score® of 86. It is at the crossroads of all things going on in the center of Bend.
You are situated just a block from the Galveston Bridge overlooking the final yards of the Deschutes River float trip from the Old Mill to downtown. Keep that in mind as you plan your own leisurely cruise on your watercraft of choice. The vibrant Galveston corridor is home to a plethora of brew pubs, restaurants, food carts, and coffee shops.
Across the street is Drake Park. Catch a free Munch ‘n Music event on a postcard summer evening, or a year-round saunter along the river. Next to the park is downtown Bend, with endless choices for dinner, shopping, people-watching, refreshing craft beers, or a cup of locally roasted coffee. Street festivals, art fairs, live music and Tower Theater events dot the calendar all year. In the summer, you will be first in line at the downtown farmer’s market.
Bring your bikes and easily extend your touring experience through the historic neighborhoods to the Box Factory, Whitewater Park, and The Old Mill where you can spend the afternoon shopping, movie-going, trekking on numerous river trails, and wine tasting. When you return, lock the two-wheelers in our shed for safekeeping.
The 473 is a wonderful study in 'tiny living'. At about 400 sqft, it has everything you need and nothing you don't! Updated from top to bottom with fun and creative use of spaces, you'll love this space.
Your home features a comfy pillowtop king bed. The sleeping area is on the outside corner of the apartment and does not have any shared walls.
If you need to take a breather inside, hunker down in the love seat and enjoy the infra-red fireplace, HD SmartTV, BluRay, read a book, or enjoy what WiFi can offer.
The efficient kitchen is fully stocked with utensils for virtually anything you want to put on the menu. There is cold water filtration at the kitchen sink, so fill the flask before setting out in the morning. Take a seat in the eating nook to relax with your cup of coffee, plan your day, or to enjoy whatever you whipped up.
You also have the option of firing up the gas grill on the patio and enjoying your favorite homemade alfresco dinner.
The bathroom is tastefully done and provides a combo tub and shower.
