About the property

Million Dollar river views from the small, quaint cabin. River access from Beach

Welcome to our Century-Old rustic mill cabin. This one bedroom, one bath cabin can sleep up to four people if using the sleeper sofa. Located on upper Mirror Pond, Deschutes Cabin at Deschutes Dunes is on Bend's famous Deschutes River Trail (Pioneer Reach) and offers easy access to Drake Park which is only a couple blocks north (keep walking through Drake Park and in about 10 minutes you have arrived downtown). Two blocks south of Deschutes Dunes is Bend's newest river park, Miller's Landing. Continuing south you will cross the river and arrive at McKay Park. A little further down the trail you will find The Old Mill and Les Schwab Amphitheater.

Sunny porch looks out to the three lot common backyard, beach and river. Enjoy Adirondack chairs and chaise loungers for soaking up the sun, an Outside BBQ, dining table and chairs...Amazing river views from the cabin and easy low bank river access to launch your kayak, canoe or SUP from the huge, park-like shared yard. We have a few canoes, plenty of float toys and several kayaks, including two kids kayak for our guests... You will love the perfect location. Whether you head toward the many parks, downtown, the local pubs or Old Mill District, you will find yourself in the middle of it all.

The home is a block away from the popular French Market. A short walk or a quick bike ride takes you to the breweries and restaurants of Galveston Avenue like 10 Barrel, Victorian Pantry, or downtown.

Why Tab Dahl 541-480-6986 chose Old Bend

The million dollar river view and fantastic location was the selling point!

What makes this cabin unique

The Deschutes river and iconic Drake Park make this property extra special. Bend's newest riverfront park Miller's Landing and Bend's latest "Whitewater Park" are just down the street. Columbia Park, a fun park for kid's and 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 location in Bend.

Hard to leave our lil bugalow on the water

  • 5 of 5

Perfect stay at this sweet little spot on the water. The treat was watching the river, the bird life and folks floating by. We knew this was a shared waterfront, and did have a few folk sitting outside in the deck chairs. The bungalow was cute, well appointed and clean. Little far to walk to town if you knew you would be walking back in the dark or if rain was possible, we did walk in 40 mph winds! Wonderful stay for our anniversary and appreciated that we could bring our dog with us as well.

Easy access to town, great host

  • 5 of 5

This place is right near all the things you'd want to do/see in Bend. The cottage itself is basic but comfortable, and the river right out back is great. Finding the cabin was easy and parking is convenient right outside the front door. The host was lovely and when we thought we might have to stay in town another day because of the weather she mentioned she had another cabin available should we need it. My only complaint is the mattress is way too soft for our liking--one person shifting around woke the other person up. I realize we may be in the minority of preferring firm mattresses though, so take that note with a grain of salt. Overall this place is a great value and perfect for a weekend getaway.
