The Deschutes River... enter right from our backyard at Riverfront Bend, enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding, floating or swimming the river. Everyone loves to float down the river to Drake Park - Grab the shuttle for $1 they will take you and your floaty a few miles up river so you can float back down again. A great way to explore Bend, float from the Old Mill District and end in Drake Park/Mirror Pond.

Absolutely beautiful! The Deschutes River gently winds through the wooded landscape creating the perfect playground for animals and people alike. On the weekend you can spot fly fisherman, kayaks, paddle boards and beavers enjoying the crisp waters.

The reason the town is here. Fish, float, kayak, or just look at it, it is the centerpiece to one of America's very best towns.

The Bend Bungalow is just two blocks away from the river and Harmon Park-- with a walking bridge that goes through the park to old town. Lovely walk!
