Welcome to River Bend!

River Bend is a prime real estate development located on 98 acres in Niles, Michigan. Perched on the bluffs of the St. Joe River, our gated community is truly unique. It’s the perfect place to call home — tucked securely away amid lush, mature forest with wildlife all around — yet close to everything you need.

What our residents say...

We were looking for a place that provided solitude, security, and friendly neighbors. We have found all that at River Bend and are extremely pleased with our new home and surroundings. The plentiful deer, turkey, and other wildlife increase the benefit of living at River Bend.

My wife and I can't imagine living in a more beautiful place. With the acres of wooded land, the river setting, and the many animals and birds, it is truly living with nature. When I come home at the end of the day, it is like going home to a retreat.

- Paul Farthing

I like seeing the amount and variety of wildlife here (turkey, deer, singing birds of all kinds), plus the fact that River Bend is gated and secure. I also really enjoy the density and maturity of the forest, which creates a peaceful setting.

- Bill Givens

The private paved road, which doubles as a walking trail through the wooded area, sets River Bend apart from ordinary cookie-cutter developments. However, in the short time I have spent living in River Bend, I have found the other residents to be the nicest thing about River Bend. The established residents have bent over backwards to welcome newcomers.
