Overview

About the property

3 bdrm, 1 bath, fully eqpt kitchen, fenced yard w/covered patio & barbeque.

Our charming, sunny, and comfortable house is less than three blocks from the Deschutes River and riverside parks, and a short walk to the amazing and wonderful variety of restaurants, taverns, grocery stores and shops on Galveston and Newport. It's also an easy walk to downtown Bend, the amphitheater, and the Old Mill District, and just a 30 minute drive to Mt. Bachelor, yet it's on a quiet, leafy street with beautiful houses and friendly neighbors. It really is a perfect location, whatever your reason for visiting Bend.

We just bought the house and painted the entire inside, put down new floors and carpets, and added new furnishings. The living room is spacious, with two big couches (one a fold-out queen bed), comfortable chairs, and a 42 inch flat screen TV with cable TV and Wi-Fi, a DVD player, and DVDs for adults and kids and some great books for vacation reading. The kitchen is large and fully stocked with dishes and utensils, and has a beautiful oak dining table that seats six, and has two leaves to add if you need even more room at the table.

Two bedrooms have comfortable queen beds (one with a Tempur-pedic mattress), the third has a beautiful and comfortable wood bunk bed, and all have high quality linens and pillows.

The back yard is completely fenced, the covered back patio has a new gas barbecue, and there's even a basketball backboard with a new net and a basketball.

There's a full size washer and dryer inside.

About Michele

We live in Boulder Creek, CA, near Santa Cruz, deep in the redwood forests. We started visiting Bend in 2008 when our son and his wife moved here. Since then, most of our daughter-in-law's family has moved to Bend, and we've visited many times. With every visit, in different seasons, we saw more of the town and the area, and the more we experienced, the more we loved it. We love the sunny weather, the gorgeous river flowing through town, the constant striking views of the snow-capped mountains, the beautiful old houses, the friendly people, and the abundance of good food, drink, and entertainment.

Each time we visited, our kids urged us to buy a house. We looked at a lot of houses in a lot of neighborhoods, but didn't quite get to the point of doing it. But then we got the news that a grandchild was on the way, and we finally bought this house.

Michele purchased this house in 2013

Why Michele chose River West

Our son and his extended family all live on the Westside, in the River West neighborhood. Because this also happens to be our favorite neighborhood in Bend, this is where we wanted to buy, and we were lucky to find this home. In addition to being walking distance from our family, it's walking distance from all of the stores, restaurants, and bars on Galveston and Newport, downtown, and the river and Drake Park, and it's on a lovely, quiet, tree-lined, street, with friendly neighbors. It couldn't be better.

Perfect for a Bend vacay weekend

  • 5 of 5

This house was great in every way. The location was perfect to just walk into town and explore. It was well equipped with random things we needed. The beds were comfy. The dogs loved the fenced in yard. Overall super cozy place, very walkable, could not have asked for more!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house. It was clean and stocked with all the right things. Very quiet and relaxing and being dog friendly, our dog was able to roam around the fenced back yard. Spent evenings sitting and relaxing at the table on the patio. Definitely would rent again.

Would stay again

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Federal House. Beds were very comfortable. House had plenty of clean linens and towels. Check in and out was very painless. Fenced yard and basketball hoop for the kids. Plenty of room for a large family and dogs are welcome. Set up great for dogs. House temperature in winter was excellent. Great location in Bend. If I had any negative things to comment it would just be that the kitchen needs a few more baking items like measuring cups and spoons, hand blender etc. Most people probably don't miss these items but I like to cook meals and bake at home. Also water in kitchen is hot but shower isn't as hot. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you!!!!!
