The River Gem Bungalow is a bright and cheerful one bedroom treasure nestled in the heart of Bend's popular Westside with a location that can't be beat!

Right across the street from the Deschutes River, it is within walking distance of the Old Mill District, historic downtown, Les Schwab Amphitheater, and numerous breweries.

Directly behind the house is Bend's newest park, Miller's Landing: a riparian strip of riverfront with nesting osprey, walking trails, and excellent river access.

Only a few steps away is a charming footbridge that takes you over the river on an easy walk to Columbia Park and "Pirate Playground", a wonderland for kids.

This natural-contemporary style home features high ceilings, lots of windows, a cozy loft and artistic touches that highlight the authentic Bend lifestyle. Relax on the deck or under the aspens in the big backyard, surrounded by mature trees and landscaping.

If you prefer to get out and explore, there are plenty of hiking and mountain bike trails just minutes from town in the Deschutes National Forest. The spectacular Cascade Mountains and many lakes are an easy 20 minute drive providing endless opportunities for outdoor adventures.

This home proudly features European style bedding with fresh, clean duvet covers and high thread count linens, a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, washer, dryer, DVD player, wireless internet, games and much more for you to discover!

Cannot beat this location for exploring Old District Bend. Great park across the street to entertain the dogs and humans. So many eateries and coffee shops within walking distance. This area does have a lot of foot traffic and bicycles but it was not intrusive at all. Great to relax on the back deck area while our pups frolicked in the grass! Perfect amount of space for a couple and the property management company was a breeze to communicate with.

This was the perfect stay for our small family of 2 adults and 4 legged daughter :) The location is unbeatable! This is a great neighborhood; while there is plenty of foot-traffic to hop on the trail nearby, it is not at all disruptive. The bed is super comfortable, and the home was stocked with everything basic that was needed for our stay. Our hosts Bluebird Day are fantastic-- communications are clear, timely, and welcoming. A hassle free and great stay-- well be back again.

My dog and I were initially going to be staying here by ourselves while I took a wilderness medicine recertification class. My husband joined us last minute and we had a lovely vacation/ class this past week. The location was perfect. We could walk everywhere we needed to. I love that the hosts provide bikes too. The house was just the right size and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Thats the best Ive ever slept while traveling. The yard was also great for our dog to play.

This is a great spot in Bend for anything. It is located equidistant from downtown, the mill district and the west side of the river. We brought our son and he really enjoyed the loft. It provided enough space and the off street parking was convenient. We would definitely stay here again

Second time here at this duplex/location, and will always be my choice for Bend. Location is the best part about this place. We did not drive anywhere, we just simply walked or rode bikes to any location we wanted. Very convenient for our dogs with the fenced yard and located right next to Miller Park and the river. The unit was very spacious with every convenience needed. This location is highly recommended.

We enjoyed the centrally located cottage for our family of four & 1 dog. The amenities in the cottage were nice, including tubes for floating the river and bikes-if you needed them. It was great to be able to walk to Drake Park, local breweries (10Barrell & Crux), shopping/dining in Old Mill District and jumping on running trails along the river.
