Overview

About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Drake West Bungalow is located just one block back from iconic Drake Park along the Deschutes River, and one block away from popular Galveston Avenue with eclectic shops and restaurants. Leave your car at the house and enjoy walking to some of Bend's most popular places!

The Drake West Bungalow was built in 1919 as one of the original homes for the lumber mill workers that populated the area during that time. It has been totally restored and remodeled with 'green' efficiency building in mind, but the house still perfectly reflects the classic charm of its era. This one bedroom bungalow is perfect for those wishing to be within a beautiful stroll to the park, river, downtown Bend, and the popular west side where you can enjoy everything from quaint bakeries to superb restaurants, unique galleries to seasonal festivals, bike and recreation equipment rental shops, and not to mention some of the greatest microbreweries in the country-- all right outside the front door. The Drake West Bungalow is the perfect place to have all of Bend right at your fingertips.

Enjoy one private bedroom with California King bed, one full bathroom, living room with flat screen TV and DVD player, additional sleeping available on a pull out sofa bed, fully stocked kitchen with everything you need, free high speed wireless internet, washer and dryer, outdoor BBQ and deck. We include two cruiser bikes at the house for you to use while our guests. There is also a hot tub in the private yard for a relaxing end to a busy Central Oregon day.

The Drake West Bungalow is the perfect home for your Bend getaway. It is centrally located to everything you want to access in Bend, but is private with its fully fenced backyard area and private off street parking. Come be our guests to truly experience this wonderful area!

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: The beautiful custom home that is being built in the neighborhood is going up! We're excited to welcome such a lovely new place, but please pardon the dust. Crews will be working midweek getting that house ready for the new owners. Because of increased neighborhood activity, we are offering REDUCED RATES during our Sunday-Thursday nights to counteract any morning noise that may occur Monday-Friday. Look at our discounted rates online, or contact me with other unpublished special construction deals we may be offering!

Great bungalow in good location

  • 4 of 5

This is a great bungalow in a nice location, easy to walk to restaurants etc. Guests should be aware there is construction right next door and it starts early on weekdays. Also, I would suggest the owners add a couple of extra blankets for the couch bed, that room is colder than the others.

Can't go wrong here...

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Bend and it did not disappoint. The Drake West Bungalow is in a perfect location. Central to everything. We really enjoyed walking into town and exploring the areas around us.

The place was everything we needed and more. Can't wait to go back.

Cute bungalow

  • 3 of 5

The bedroom was super hot the small air conditioner did not cool the whole house. The pillows were super uncomfortable you should invest in some firm pillows. The knifes in the kitchen were not sharp enough to cut a tomato. There was no Kleenex and barely enough toilet paper had to go to the store. Someone should clean the windows especially the kitchen and you need a screen on the bedroom window so you could open it. All else was fine and is a good location. Just thought you could improve the experience with the above issues. Also could of provided additional wine glasses

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed the location of this house, and that you thought it was a cute bungalow. It is indeed! This house is one of our most requested and people love staying so close to all the wonderful west side activities, especially now during the popular summertime. I love being a local operator here in Bend so we can take care of any guest concerns quickly, as long as we know about them. I only wish you would have called while you were staying to offer your feedback. We called out a technician to look at the air conditioning immediately after reading your review, and purchased brand new pillows and replacement wine glasses to compliment the set of four that were already there. Guest satisfaction is at the heart of our business and we love to make the guest experience a great one. Perhaps next time you might give us that chance.
