Perfectly located, across the river from downtown Bend, this new home is the idealistic Base Camp to stage your adventure - whether for skiing, biking, fly fishing, paddling, or enjoying the Ale Trail. The path to an epic adventure starts here!

The space

There are two units on this brand new, ultra-high-end property; 'The Main House' and 'The Bivouac'. The Bivouac is an awesome, detached, walk up apartment on the back side of the property. It is a very private space and has its own separate entrance from an alleyway off of 1st Street. It is a 1 bedroom apartment that's equipped with a kitchen, a fireplace, a full bath, and a washer/dryer - all of this is self contained in the Bivouac.

This location is incredibly convenient for walking to town. It's a short block to the Newport Bridge, which is the threshold to the amazing breweries, restaurants, cafes and boutique shops in downtown Bend.

The bedroom can be configured in 2 different ways so it's very adaptable for a couple, or for 2 singles that don't want to share a bed. It's your choice; pick either a King bed OR two XL Twin beds in the bedroom. The beds are equipped with blissful, new, Tempur-Pedic mattresses. There are 3 different pillow types ranging from firm to squishy, per person, to choose from.

If you plan to bring a 3rd person there is plenty of room! The couch in the living room is an incredibly comfy daybed. It's about 8' long, and very wide, so there is plenty of room for even a giant to have a sound slumber.

Guest access

There is an outdoor, fenced in, storage space, with lock, for bikes, skis and sports gear.

Interaction with guests

I love adventures and adventurers. If I can swing it, I'm more than happy to be your guide to Bend and what lies out on the trail.

Other things to note

I have super speedy wireless internet.

It's really hot in Bend in the summer time ~ It's the desert after all. You need air-conditioning, and I've got it.

You can leave your hair dryer at home, I've got one for you to use.

Send me a note to let me know which bedroom configuration you prefer: 1 King or 2 Extra-long Twin beds.

The listed price includes the City of Bend 10.4% short term rental tax and a 1% state tax, along with fees to Airbnb for managing this service. I do not negotiate the listed price since I've already accounted for extended stays, weekends, and seasonality in the Airbnb pricing tools.

Pets or smoking are strictly not allowed in the Bivy, or on the property, anywhere. I maintain a hypo-allergenic space. Moreover, forfeiture of the entire security deposit will result from bringing pets into this home or smoking anywhere on the property.

Do not bring sports gear, like skis and bikes, into the house. There is a large, locked and gated storage area under the stairs to the Bivouac that you can utilize to keep bikes and skis.

Please take off your shoes.

Read the house manual in the reservation for all the info you need for your trip. It's super helpful!!

I also put together a guide book to Bend with all of my favorite spots.

Have fun and get after it!

The Bivy is fantastic, cozy guest house with plenty of modern amenities, including crazy fast WiFi, in-unit laundry, etc. etc. etc. The location is also fantastic. Downtown Bend and the Old Mill are within walking/biking distance (did I tell you he has bikes for you to borrow?). There's also plenty of on-street parking around the area if you've got (or rented) a car, so don't be fooled by the proximity to downtown. In addition, Matt is lightning quick with his responses. Although he made everything so easy I didn't need to ask him much, it was comforting knowing he'd respond quickly if we'd needed anything. This spot is definitely my go-to for future trips to Bend!

We loved staying at the Bivy. Awesome location and very comfortable. It was so nice having access to the bikes, too. We were able to get everywhere we wanted to go. We'll be back again!

This guest house/granny flat is the perfect spot for someone looking to enjoy the Bend lifestyle while having a lovely place to rest once you're back from hiking, biking or just cruising town. Super clean place with a simple, modern style to it. The bed was truly beyond comfy and the place has great light and modern amenities. Definitely would recommend this place to others! Great location, quick response from the host and over all a lovely stay!
