Overview

Bend House Rental Photos and Description

Newly Remodeled 1940's Cottage, Walk To The River, Downtown, And The Old Mill

Lovingly Cared for by Bluebird Day Vacation. Visit our website www.BluebirdDayVacationRentals.com and book your reservation on-line 24/7. Booking is fast, secure, and super easy!

LOCATION, LOCATION! Our newly remodeled 1940’s cottage in the heart of Bend is steps from Drake Park, Mirror Pond, and Downtown Bend. This quintessential cottage has everything you need for a perfect Central Oregon getaway.

Experience the authentic Bend lifestyle when you wake up to sunshine and walk across the street to Drake Park and the idyllic Deschutes River. Stroll through the historic neighborhood to Downtown and enjoy one of the many great restaurants, breweries, galleries and shops. Walk across the bridge and the ultra-popular 10 Barrel Brewing Company, your starting point to the Bend Ale Trail, is a mere stroll away. Hop on a cruiser bike that we provide, and ride along the river to the Old Mill District to enjoy an IMAX movie, shopping, or riverside dining.

World class bike trails, paddle boarding down the river, live outdoor concerts at Les Schwab Amphitheater, and the winter shuttle to Mt. Bachelor are all right out your front door of the Riverside Cottage.

This fantastic location is just the beginning. Enjoy relaxing in the private hot tub under the stars, or hang out on the wide front porch and watching the day go by-- Bend style! Or, cozy up in front of the fireplace and watch hundreds of cable channels on the flat screen HDTV, or enjoy a movie on the wireless BluRay DVD player. The open floor plan is ideal for families and friends!

Create a gourmet meal for the entire family in the fully equipped, newly remodeled kitchen, or cook out on the gas grill, while you enjoy the private patio.

Downstairs is designed for fun in the spaciously remodeled family room. Play a game of foosball, enjoy a board game together in front of the second fireplace, or join in a game on the Wii from our collection of disks. Spread out with the whole family for a BluRay DVD in HD or take a quiet respite and enjoy a great selection of books for all ages from the library.

A third bedroom with a double and twin bed, and a sleeping nook are also downstairs. This is a great set up for multiple families with kids or groups of friends! The 1800 sq. ft. has a cozy cottage feel while providing room enough for everyone without feeling crowded.

This house is fully equipped with all the amenities you need for a one of a kind Bend vacation. There are tubes for the river, sleds for the snow, and cruiser bikes for you to explore the Bend neighborhoods!

If you prefer to get out of town and into nature, there are endless hiking and mountain bike trails just minutes from town. The spectacular Cascade Mountains and many lakes are and easy 20 minute drive providing endless opportunities for outdoor adventures. Phil’s mountain bike trails are an easy 6 miles to the West, as well as many walking and hiking trails along the Deschutes River right out your front door!

Oh yes, and did we mention world class skiing? Mount Bachelor Ski Resort is an easy 25 minute drive from Bend. This mountain is a blast, with a wide variety of terrain and trails that will keep you blissfully enthralled. There is a Mount Bachelor Shuttle just up the street that will take you to and from the mountain.

All Bluebird Day homes are lovingly cared for with the intention of offering you a world class authentic Bend vacation experience. Locally owned and operated, we provide you with a unique opportunity to experience the magic of Bend like a local. We care about our neighborhoods and community, feel passionate about preserving historic homes, and are delighted to offer you a glimpse of our unique and friendly Bend lifestyle.

About Rebecca Whitson

When we moved to Oregon 7 years ago we knew we had found somewhere that truly felt like home. But when we discovered Bend, we felt like we had found heaven. Bend is the perfect combination of stunning beauty, unlimited outdoor adventure, and vibrant town life. We love being able to walk downtown, snowboard and walk along the river all in one day.

We love that Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals is a locally owned and operated property management company, and we appreciate that they have a philosophy about celebrating and preserving Bend culture that is right in alignment with our own. They take amazing care of our home, and will provide you with great service!

The Izora Family

Rebecca Whitson purchased this house in 2012

Why Rebecca Whitson chose Bend

We have always loved bungalows and cottages and when we found Riverside we knew it was a perfect fit. We set it up for our family of 6 to enjoy the amazing splendor of central Oregon. We feel privileged to make it available to you and your friends and family, and look forward to welcoming you as our guest at Riverside Cottage.

What makes this house unique

The Riverside has all the charm of an Old Town Bend cottage with the added benefit of a lower level family entertainment room that gives a larger family or group of friends a chance to spread out and not feel crowded. Our favorite benefit of the Riverside Cottage is its location. We love coming to Bend and walking everywhere! The cottage is literally just across the street from Drake Park, and just a short walk to Downtown Bend through the charming Old Town Neighborhood. We also love being so close to the river, and the bike and walking paths to the Old Mill.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great 2 night stay at the Riverside Cottage. We played numerous board games and are now seriously considering getting a foosball table for our own house! It's a lovely home in a great location. Thank you!!

Perfect house in the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This location is perfect, an easy walk to downtown or across the bridge to a couple of fun bars/restaurants. Make sure to make your way to brother johns for drinks/dinner and the victorian cafe for breakfast and some crazy bloody marys!

The house had two parking spots and was very clean. The room split was perfect and we filled the beds comfortably. The sleeping nook was such a cool little perk. Had we wanted to squish, we could have easily accommodated another couple people on the couches. We enjoyed the hot tub all three nights and spent a lot of time playing foosball and wii. They even have a stack of games to enjoy! We didn't cook, but the kitchen appeared well stocked and had everything we needed. The shed is packed with multiple bikes and even a razor scooter. We didn't look in there till the last day, but I can imagine what a time all 6 of us would have had riding bikes to the bars and back. Maybe it's better we didn't find them ;-) The only thing the house didn't have that I wished it had was a hairdryer. I didnt bring one with me and had some crazy bangs as a result.

We immensely enjoyed our stay. The rental company was quick to respond and accommodating despite the fact we booked one day before we came! Make yourself home here, you won't regret it!

A Perfect Ten!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Fourth of July week at Riverside Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed every day. The home is well-appointed and spacious. We're grandparents and our daughter, son-in-law and two growing grandsons were made to feel right at home. We entertained additional family members for many dinners, soaked in the 'hot' tub, road cruisers, floated down the river, and tasted lots of great beer. And hardly used our cars!

Our stay coincided with the Tour de France, a must-see for our family, and the managers quickly accommodated our request for special cable coverage.

The property is everything promised and more. We had a delightful experience.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful home.

Fantastic Location in downtown Bend

  • 5 of 5

This newly remodeled house is great! Only a block away from Drake park and a 10 minute walk to Bond/Wall Streets. The house was spotlessly clean. The game room and especially the foosball table was a big hit with our family. The kitchen has lots of counter space and utensils. And the four rooms provided plenty of space for us to spread out. There were no less than NINE (yes 9) bikes in the shed, a great mode of transportation in the downtown area.

Our only regret was the non-functional hot tub, but we hope to visit again when its fixed. Highly recommend this house for its proximity to all things Bend. Must do on our list is 10 Barrel Brewing, Nancy Ps bakery and Newport Market.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this wonderful review! YES! THE HOT TUB IS NOW WORKING! It is so enormous that we had to completely redo the electrical panel in order to accommodate it. :) We hope you will visit the Riverside Cottage again and have a soak under the stars!
