The Art House is a historic mill home formerly a part of the McMenamins St. Francis Hotel in downtown Bend Oregon. Due to expansion needs of the extremely popular McMenamins location this house needed to be moved to a new location to preserve its historical importance. The current owners committed to moving the structures (recycling) and relocating so that the public could continue to enjoy these special homes. After great effort by both the McMenamins franchise and the current owners the goal was achieved by successfully relocating.
The Art house still has much of its historical charm such as old style wood fireplace, antique doors, and sinks but was upgraded with modern appliances, professionally designed kitchen, hot tub, Flat screen TVs, etc. Continuing with the recycling theme the decks were all built from reclaimed old growth redwood. The ceilings were paneled with local Ponderosa Pine that had been killed by pine beetles. These dead trees were milled locally into custom ceiling paneling. Decorative accents were made from reclaimed barn wood creating a warm, and rustic feel. Many of the McMenamins decorations and additions have been preserved as well maintaining the super fun and funky charm McMenamins hotels are known for. For the traveler with an eclectic appreciation of historical design and simplicity this is sure to please. Broaden your palate with something a little different, something unique and memorable. What great vacations are all about.
