“home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

Words can't describe the comfort in accommodations and fantastic 5 star breakfasts each morning. This was our first trip without our 4 lovely children, and I felt so pampered that it made the trip amazing. The food, the ambience, hot tub, and LOCATION makes the Mill Inn a place to come to again and again. It was wonderful to see small children waking and coming to breakfast in their pajamas. Thanks for a wonderful trip!

Room Tip: The Seattle Room has it's own beautiful "Molly Brown era" bathroom, so you don't h...

We came to Bend without much planning and a quick internet search pulled up the Mill Inn with an affordable price and a location close to things downtown.

Booking online was easy, after hours access was provided and everything was as promised - clean, comfortable and very inviting. There was a hot tub and fire pit area which I was disappointed not to have the chance to enjoy as we were only passing through.

Breakfast in the morning is definitely the highlight - as much awesome home cooked food as you can eat - some delicious biscuits/scones, quiche, bacon, fruits, cereals and even gluten free options if you ask a day or so ahead.

Zane, the proprietor was a really nice guy - gave us some tips of things to do around town and we had entertaining conversation with him through out breakfast as he came around checking if things were to our satisfaction. during the conversation I also found he is a MTB guide and I am looking forward to coming back with some friends and having him take us out on the trails around Bend.

oh and the last thing - the cool little coffee shop across the road makes fantastic coffee with beans from Stumptown roasters in Portland.

Room Tip: The Mt Bachelor Room is on the front near the road, but was quiet and comfortable.

My husband and I decided at the last minute to go to Bend for a quick getaway (we live on the coast). After reading online reviews, we settled on the Mill Inn BNB.

We were blown away! The location was perfect (we walked to McMenamins) and a couple minute drive to the Riverbend park where you can Stand Up Paddle in the Deschutes River.

The bnb itself was wonderful. The decorations were quirky meets classy. Every room and breakfast table had a chandelier.

The jacuzzi out on the back patio was hot and ready to go. We were worried we would have to compete with other couples, but had the whole patio to ourselves for quite a while.

The breakfast was to DIE for. So much delicious. We felt like we were eating like royalty. The breakfast room (most of the downstairs) is set up with lots of smaller tables so you don't have to sit with people you don't know (if you don't want to).

When we made our reservations (only a couple of days before our trip), we indicated that we had some food allergies. They made both gluten free and dairy free quiche options, as well as dairy free scones. We had plenty to eat, and they didn't make it weird at all. (if you have food allergies, you know what I mean by weird). When we checked out, they gave us more coffee in to-go cups and a little bag to take scones as well.

We plan to return to Bend for getaways in the future, and will definitely stay at the Mill Inn bnb.

Our only negative was that we normally sleep on a comforpedic (memory foam) mattress, and the mattress in our room here was an older style spring mattress...which made our sleep sub par. If they updated their mattresses, it would be unbeatable!

Room Tip: We stayed in the San Francisco Room (room 7). I recommend staying in one of the rooms that has it...

We needed something central and fun as we looked around Bend for rental housing (pretty non existent!). This place fit the bill, really central to the Old Mill District and downtown with good access and good parking.

Décor was whimsical and fun. Great bed and pillows. And the breakfast was truly amazing. David is the do everything manager/cook and so on. And he offers about three kinds of amazing quiche plus eggs made to your order, fresh fruit, great coffee and tea and on and on. They said it was a 7-course breakfast and it was at least that. Hard to move after that!

He and the owner were also great founts of information on the area as we explored. Nice little fire going out back at night. Quiet even in the middle of a couple of busy streets.

Loved it.

Just stayed in Bend at the Mill Inn for 3 nights, as we explored the town. We were very pleasantly surprised and felt that this place was a great value for the price, even considering our two little cons.

Pros -

David, the manager, is a fantastic cook. Breakfast every morning is an amazing spread, and even though we were the only people in the whole place on Tuesday night, Wednesday morning we woke up to the same awesome buffet. Quiches, burritos, ham, bacon, eggs to order, the most delicious belgian waffle that was perfectly crispy, scones, toasts, breads, greek yogurt and granola, fruit, etc. AMAZE-balls. Oh, and really good coffee.

Rooms are small but very nicely appointed, and very clean. Bathrooms are tastefully tiled in white and just really cute, with memory foam mats and fluffy white towels. Even the shared bathroom in the hallway is really nice - we are squeamish about sharing but honestly after seeing it in person, we would do that next time, since it's a little cheaper and the bathrooms are just so clean and luxurious!

The owner, Zane, and the manager, David, are both helpful and accommodating. We thought we'd have to stay an extra day and Zane blocked it off for us just in case. David helped out with recommendations on places to eat around town, neighborhoods, etc. The morning we left, they offered to pack us food for the road, and got us to-go cups for coffee.

LOCATION - you can't beat the location. You can walk to the Old Mill District, Mirror Pond and Drake Park, and the whole downtown area, which has a good mix of cheap places and high-end places to eat and shop at. The road the Mill Inn is located on is the one that takes you straight to Mt. Bachelor, only a 15-20 minute drive.

Amenities - basement with foozball, laundry, and a hang out area, and a backyard with a hot tub, fire pit, and hang out "tent" area. FREE WIFI!

Cons -

You can totally hear your neighbors, so on a crowded weekend be prepared to party.

My BF and I are used to sleeping on a memory foam mattress, so we annoyed each other with our tossing and turning on the regular spring mattress.

Room Tip: I would call and ask for the rooms at the front of the Inn for the quietest spot, or the River Wild...

The owner and caretaker were very humble and friendly. Making sure all was taken care off and anything requested was granted. Food allergies not a problem here. They will make a wonderful breakfast according to your dietary needs and its delicious. This bed and breakfast is a perfect walking distance into downtown.i enjoyed my stay here very much. Its very cozy and comfortable a historic house with a modern zing!!

What a great find! Upon arrival you let yourself in to the building via a door code provided to you. Your room key is in your room. Just make yourself at home. We walked to the corner grocery and got a bottle of wine and some cheese, sat at a lovely antique table in the dining room and enjoyed the quiet ambiance. At 3pm we were the only ones there. This boutique hotel is cute, clean and well appointed., In your room and in the bathrooms, you will find everything you would expect in a 5 star hotel. Lovely antiques and decorations throughout. Nice patios with gas fireplaces and a clean hot tub with privacy. Breakfast to die for! Amazing gourmet quiches, Belgian waffles, fruits, homemade local jams, fresh baked cranberry scones all handmade by one of the owners and chef David. He and Zane were very attentive and informative. For a unique and relaxing B&B, this is the place..

Room Tip: Two rooms on the south side may be noisier from street. Suites with bathrooms were very nice. The s...
