About this listing

This newly constructed above-garage apartment is a light, bright oasis in the heart of Bend. Walk everywhere from this centrally-located gem. A deck overlooks the Deschutes River and the bedroom has a view of Mt Bachelor...you can't beat that!

The space

This space got its name "The Treehouse" because friends and family just started calling it that. It really does feel like you are in a treehouse. A special place in the heart of it all, yet still uniquely private. Gorgeous views too!

Members of our family have a passion for design and art. You will see unique wood-working pieces throughout the treehouse and a contemporary-meets-rustic design palate. Comfy and modern at the same time!

Guest access

You will have a driveway parking spot and your own entrance to the treehouse apartment.

Interaction with guests

I live across the stress from the treehouse. My mother (the owner) lives in the main house on the property. We are close by should you need anything, but the treehouse really is its own space and very private. We typically only see guests in passing. But feel free to say hi and strike up a conversation with some long-time Bend locals.

Other things to note

You have river access on this property. The cottage behind the treehouse is a vacation rental. To respect the privacy of all enjoying this unique and special property, your access to the river is around the back of the cottage on the north-side. The steps down are unique stone steps.

We are still improving the yard after completing the construction of this brand-new space. We will be doing some yard work during your stay to continue to beautify the space and provide a nice private yard area...but this is a work in progress. Lots of parks and beautiful trails are quickly accessed right out the door!

Really can't say enough positive things about the treehouse. I walked almost everywhere from that spot and enjoyed its super close river access. Katie has thought of pretty much everything you'd need in a place and was always responsive when I'd reach out. Wish I could've stayed longer than the month I was there! Highly recommend.

This truly has everything you could possibly need or want. Not only the perfect location, beautiful scenery and charm but peace and tranquility. Loved the decor and all the accessories. One of the best we have ever stayed at by far!

The Treehouse is amazing! Comfortable, clean, private and well/equipped with anything you might need. Located right on the Deschutes River, as well as a short walk to breweries, restaurants and coffee shops. Katie was an exceptional host- responded quickly to texts and was very accommodating during my stay. Highly recommend this place! :)

The Treehouse is a superb apartment, and we had a wonderful stay. The newly renovated space is immaculately clean and well stocked. It has a great location central to dining, shopping, and brewpubs – all close by within a lovely stroll. And the hosts are friendly, flexible, and very accommodating. We hope to come back again soon.

Fantastic! This is our best stay yet. Beyond clean & trendy with a modern artistic touch. Everything down to the towels were more than expected. Katie and the Sheldon family were amazing hosts. The Treehouse is a gem, and one of the best examples of what airbnb has to offer in the Northwest. Thank you! Hope to be back soon.

We stayed at The Treehouse for six weeks in the summer. It was perfect. The riverside location is wonderful: Just a few minutes stroll to the Deschutes River, and a few more on to the Mill District. A walk into town takes about 10 minutes, following the river and Mirror Pond along the way. The apartment is in a very quiet neighborhood. It was brightly clean, and very comfortable. The bed is one of the most comfortable we've ever slumbered in. A nice open layout that has all the necessities, it is a perfect place to come home to after a day outdoors. Katie was a great host: Quick with feedback, and welcoming of all inquiries. She provides all kinds of information about enjoying your stay from recommended restaurants to how to rent a canoe. And her Bend hospitality (and that is a "thing") went so far as to invite us to her family's annual July 4 celebration, held right there at the house on the river. We didn't end up partaking -- we were beat after a day of tramping in the Cascades -- but the thought reflected generosity and friendliness. Which makes her a true ambassador for her community, which holds such characteristics close to its heart. We were most appreciative of her home and her efforts, and would undoubtedly return.

The Treehouse is an awesome space in a great location! It has that cabin in the woods feeling with a touch of modern city living. Perfect for any first timers to Bend. Katie is a great host with excellent communication. I would recommend this place to anyone who is traveling to central Oregon. Would love to stay again!

The Sheldon Family has been in Bend for over 40 years. We all love the outdoors. I can be found skiing, hiking, biking, snowboarding, floating the river, rockclimbing, or surfing the Oregon Coast in my spare time. My family and I have set up our vacation rentals with all of the comforts of home so you can relax and enjoy what Bend has to offer!

I work as an engineering and physics professor at the college in Bend fall through spring, and guide cycling tours in the summer months. I love meeting new people and sharing my favorite spot with visitors!
