Property Details

Welcome to a historic tiny home IN downtown Bend...Little Milly just a block to everything: Podski Food carts, Box Factory shops & restaurants, downtown and Old Mill just a few block beyond. Comfy king bed with high thread count linens. Come stay!

Welcome to Little Milly in Downtown Bend!

***This home is available for 30 night and longer rentals***

This historic tiny home is smack dab in the heart of downtown Bend! Just around the corner from groceries, the Box Factory, and everything downtown and Old Mill! This is a great walkable location for a urban stay in Bend and a perfect base for your Bend adventures. Welcome to Bend!

This home is in the Old Bend historic register and is Craftsman style "Workingman’s Foursquare". There are only a handful of these Workingman Foursquare designed homes in Deschutes County. The first verified occupant of the home was an employee at Brooks Scanlon Lumber Company, where the Old Mill shopping district is now found. This is a classic Bend old mill cottage!
This home is located on Colorado Avenue in downtown Bend. This amazing location means you are so close to everything Bend. Downtown, the Box Factory and the Old Mill literally start outside your front and back doors. Like all homes on Colorado and in urban Bend locations, this amazing spot has some traffic noise from Colorado Avenue. Some traffic noise can be heard from both inside and outside the home. Traffic speeds are slow on this stretch of Colorado because there is a stop light a block or so away, but you will hear the passing of cars from inside and outside the home.

The pay-off for staying in this location is THE LOCATION! One block to groceries at Market of Choice, 1 block to the Podski food carts, 1 block to various coffee and breakfast spots. This is truly in the middle of it all. You can walk to the Old Mill and concerts at the Amphitheater. Downtown is an easy walk as well. Bringing your surf board? Walk or bike to the river wave in minutes.

This tiny home has a gas fireplace that really puts out heat. There is also a mini split heat pump with A/C to keep you comfortable year round. There are ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room as well.

This sweet 1 bedroom home features a king bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The king bed is medium firmness with high thread count sheets and European style duvet bedding. Perfect for 1-2 people. The ensuite bathroom is adjacent through a vintage craftsman door that is a little short. The bathroom is clean and modern. You'll find a comfortable corner stall shower (no tub) stocked with earth friendly soaps and shampoos. Please request the Pack & Play crib and/or high chair, if you need them, when you reserve and we can deliver then to the home for you.

You'll enjoy cozy seating for 4 in the comfortable living room. There are 2 desks in the home if you need a work station, just take your pick. One desk is in the bedroom and the other in the living room. You are also welcome to work at the oversized kitchen table as it converts from bar style eating space to a full sized table. This tiny homes lives larger than it is.

In the front yard, a petite covered porch out front looks out over lively Colorado Avenue. You see people walking, biking and driving to nearby food carts, shops and just getting around town. There are a few fun shops across the street from Little Milly. Massage, wigs and chocolate are a few businesses there currently. The yard is nothing special right now. There is a little grassy front yard and the backyard is mostly gravel with a patio with plenty of parking. The yard is not fully fenced.

In the backyard you'll find a concrete patio with outdoor dining for 4 and a propane BBQ. Soft dusk to dawn LED lights on the back of the home keep the patio and parking area lit for several hours after dark. Perfect for dinner on the back patio.

The gravel parking areas for this home is accessed via a short, unpaved alley. Feel free to park anywhere on the gravel, including right next to the home. The lower parking pad nearest the home is gently sloped. There is plenty of parking! If you have a large van/RV there is space for it as long as you are comfortable parking on a gentle slope. There is also an outdoor locked storage shed to store your gear year-round just off your patio.

Free wifi and TDS+ cable IS provided. Smart TV as well so you can stream your own subscriptions and favorite channels.

Little Milly is a pet friendly home. Please let us know your pet is coming and we'll provide pet sheets and other furry friend supplies. Please note that this is not a fully fenced property so pets will need to be leashed and supervised when outside to keep them safe and home. A $200 pet fee applies per month, per pet.

The house has everything you need and plenty of storage for all your outdoor gear.
Thank you for the great stay… look forward to returning soon!

"everything needed for a convenient stay"

by Monica M


I stayed at this location for two months, and it was equipped with new appliances, a comfortable bed, and everything needed for a convenient stay. This home was well kept, clean, and within walking distance to stunning trails, parks, and the downtown area. It's a great stay for those who want the convenience of walking everywhere. There are coffee shops, a spa, and even a grocery store all within a 2 minute walk. This place was on a main road, which was pretty noisy throughout the day and night, but overall I had a wonderful stay and would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

"my husband and I really enjoyed our stay here!"

by Taylor H


Adorable little house, my husband and I really enjoyed our stay here! It was on a semi busy street but still felt private, and Diana was a super responsive and awesome host who was very helpful!
