The Old Mill District and Neighborhood in Bend, Oregon
From luxury townhomes to riverfront condos, the Old Mill District offers the opportunity to live in walking distance to fabulous shops, and a myriad of restaurants and art galleries, all set against the stunning backdrop of the Cascade Mountains and the Deschutes River.
The Old Mill, located just south of downtown Bend, is a 270-acre mixed use development that originally was the historic site of the Brooks-Scanlon Lumber Company, one of the largest mill operations in the world. The three-chimney powerhouse that once fueled the sawmill's belts and blades now houses REI. All that remains of the Shevlin-Hixon Mill farther up river is a well-manicured park surrounding a beach, and playground with a lumber theme including a water wheel, buzz saws, and logs.
Visualize living a few doors down from such restaurants as Anthony's, famous for their Northwest seafood and riverside dinning, or Flatbread Community Oven, serving pizza made with the freshest organic ingredients. Grab a latte at Strictly Organic, or enjoy a sugar-rimmed martini at Greg's Grill after an evening of shopping. The Old Mill is even more festive during the holidays, with tiny white lights on every tree and complimentary horse-drawn carriages rides.
There is always something going on in the Old Mill District. Balloons Over Bend is an annual festival where hot air balloons float over the city and east towards the Cascades in a breathtaking display of patterns and colors. Throughout the summer, there are a wide variety of concerts at the Les Schwab Amphitheater ranging from pop, to country, to alternative. Bend Brewfest is a beer lover's dream every August.
With beautifully manicured gardens in the summer months and immediate access to the River Trail that extends for miles along the Deschutes River, living at the Old Mill allows for close proximity to downtown with all the amenities you need, right out the front door.
