About the property

2 Bedroom Mill Cabin at Deschutes Dunes! Perfect Location. Beach/River Access!

Welcome to our Century-old RUSTIC FEELING MILL CABIN on historic Riverfront Street. PERFECT location in the HEART of BEND. This cabin was home to some of Bend's first residents. Many of the early mill workers lived along Riverfront Street. This cabin is a tribute to the old mill days and inside you will find several old photos depicting Bend's early days and life in the mills.

This Two bedroom, one bath cabin has 811 square feet, sleeps four people and is considered a "street side" cabin. Our smaller one bedroom, Deschutes Cabin is directly facing the river and is considered a "riverfront Cabin". Adirondack chairs on the dock and a back deck with BBQ, dining table and chairs. Partial River Views and easy low bank river access to launch your kayak, canoe or SUP.

The cabins at Deschutes Dunes are set up on our mini river resort. The feel is of one common park like yard stretched out over THREE LOTS. No individual fenced off yards. While you are a guest at the Mill Cabin at Deschutes Dunes. Park your car (off street parking) and experience the best Bend has to offer right out your front door. Downtown and the Old Mill District are just a mile away. The cabin is close to the Market of Choice, Safeway and Newport Market. More popular spots on Galveston Ave, including 10 Barrel Brewing, Sunriver Brewing, Brother Jon's, Growler Phil's, THE LOT, Longboard Louie's & Victorian Cafe are less than a half mile. We also have a canoe, paddle boards, plenty of float toys and several kayaks for our guests. Kick back and watch as floaters go by on the river. Or get out there and join them. You will love the perfect location. Whether you head toward the many parks, downtown, pubs, Old Mill District, you will find yourself in the middle of it. Miller's Landing Riverfront Park and the THE NEW WHITEWATER PARK are right down the street. The Pavilion (Ice Skating/ sports) is very close. The Mt. Bachelor Park & Ride is close by and many guests have just walked over there.

Why Tab Dahl 541-480-6986 chose Old Bend

The Deschutes river and iconic Drake Park make this property extra special. Bend's newest riverfront park Miller's Landing with the WHITEWATER PARK is just down the street. Columbia Park, a fun park for kid's affectionately called 'Pirate Park' is just down the street and across the foot bridge. We love how close everything is to this home. This home is great for folks who are looking for that special and unique location in Bend.

What makes this cabin unique

The property had two old mill cabins and a million dollar view of the Deschutes River. With a little imagination and a lot of TLC, the little old cabins have transformed into special and unique vacation retreats that we hope you and your family will enjoy. Ask about our other vacation rentals too. Our properties can be rented alone or combined for larger groups. Check out VRBO # 611061 and VRBO # 418729

We hope you enjoy your stay.

Hidden info about the house-misleading customers

  • 1 of 5

According to the information, this house shares three lots, however, it should say that there is a house behind(between the actual building and a river(since it advertise as a riverfront house to rent) and it also means that you as a guest does not have a direct access to the backyard since a different renter is using the house and the backyard. It was very uncomfortable since we book the place to enjoy the river view and outdoor fireplace since we did not have an access to them. See the posting by owner:

Exactly as expected.

  • 4 of 5

Yes, this is a rustic cabin, awesome location, right on the river. Walkable to downtown and several breweries. Owner available, off the street parking. Coffee maker was in an awkward spot and the shower is a little small but the heaters worked and we were cozy. Dog friendly, too. Oh, and we had a blast feeding the ducks. It was a little too cold for us to paddle board, but there were boards and kayaks available for use.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The highlight of this place is really the location which perfect. It’s too bad it does not face the river, because in the description it makes you believe it’s on the river, but actually behind another unit. Regardless, the location is great being in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood, walking distance to parks and even downtown. Inside, the unit is a bit outdated but functional, except for the kitchen. It would have been nice to have some instructions on TV, because the satellite setup is not that simple. The kitchen has all of the appliances, but the very limited counter space, only one outlet, and very short electrical cords(toaster, coffee machine) made really annoying. Just to make coffee was a challenge, because the electric cord was too short to the outlet, and hence needed to dangle precariously at the edge of the countertop? Except the kitchen, we had a good time, and loved the neighborhood.

Rustic Bungalow in a great location

  • 4 of 5

I have been to Bend many times, and having a place located in town is important to me. The Mill Cabin is a rustic bungalow located on the river between Downtown Bend and the Old Mill District. I liked the being able to walk to downtown for dinner. I was on a ski trip so had everything I needed - a good bed, comfortable living room, workable kitchen, and a shower. The kitchen is older, but worked well for making breakfast and lunch. I loved the pictures of old Bend placed around cabin.
