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 queen 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.

Keep in mind this is a multi-unit building. Each of the apartments in this wonderful fourplex home feels quite private but they do have some shared walls. Please be aware that some noise may travel between apartments, especially if doors and window are open. City of Bend quiet hours are from 10pm to 8am and are enforced as are Bend's Good Neighbor Guidelines. Thank you for respecting our neighbors and helping everyone enjoy this peaceful retreat in Bend.

Great location

Perfect spot for a couple, but no more than two people for sure. Everything you need and a location that is hard to believe. Right on the park.

Perfect Vacation Cottage
5/5 stars
We had a fabulous time and the cottage was the perfect location for our weekend getaway. Very well appointed, super clean and having a storage shed for bikes and floaties was the icing on the cake! The owners / managers were responsive and flexible to our needs; as well as genuinely interested in how they could help us make the most of our time in Bend.

Simple yet Pretty Perfect
5/5 stars
I can’t think of a single thing to complain about. Center of everything. Max 10 min walk but you find so much on the way that you forget where you were headed in the first place. We tubed the river and the end of the river float is literally 100ft from the door step so it was convenient to hop off and be right back at your place. We grilled on last night. They had everything we could need. Even a shed to store bikes and tubes. Max 2ppl. Wouldn’t try anymore. Even if it were just kids. But super happy with my stay. I know there’s other cottages at this location so if this is too small I suggest you look at their others. Cause this is probably the best bang for your buck.
