Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy spring skiing or on the hot and sunny days take a paddle board or kayak out right from our yard! We provide the boards and boats you enjoy the fun!

This is my 4th year in this wonderful business and I want to thank all of our great guests for their gratifying response. I believed people would love our enchanted cottage on the river, and I was right. Everyone who has stayed here has fallen in love with it. I knew they would, because my husband and I live two doors south and it is so awesome.

We're perfectly placed on the Deschutes River between the Old Mill section and downtown. Many guests never drive their car the entire time they are here. Everything is within walking distance from the cottage, including tremendous brew pubs, restaurants and shops.

We set out to make our pet-friendly cottage a 5 star vacation destination home and that is how everyone has rated us. You must read our reviews! From the very beginning, our plan was to do everything we could to make your vacation perfect. We provide a lush and welcoming cottage complete with the finest quality furnishings and amenities.

You'll discover a beautifully-appointed kitchen with abundant spices and most of the basics you'd need for cooking. The living room has an enormous HD TV with Blu-Ray; the charming bedrooms are attractive and unique. The baths offer your choice of a roomy shower or an antique ball and claw foot tub for a deep soak. There is a full laundry room.

We provide welcome wine, a s'more kit for the fire pit by the river; coffee beans and a grinder (with regular coffee maker and a French press) and so much more.

We have completely decorated our riverfront cottage thinking of your every need. The photos will knock you out! There is all-new flooring and carpeting, as well as all-new furnishings and linens to give it that great resort, clean feel. In 2012, we added new

kitchen appliances.

The French doors from the kitchen open onto a large deck and expansive yard directly on the Deschutes River where you can swim, fish or experience any river sports you wish! (There is double fencing for your children's security from the river and a fenced yard for your pet.)

There is a very cool outside bar, plus all kinds of dining sets with umbrellas, comfy Adirondack chairs and a large, all-season gazebo with a full set of rattan furnishings in it.

Our Four Seasons: Each season has gems waiting to be discovered. In the winter, Mt. Bachelor is a mecca for skiers and boarders; plus, there are many areas to cross-country ski. Making snowmen with the little kids is such fun.

In the spring, you have baby ducks, geese, osprey, eagles and blossoms everywhere. As the greens explode in the trees and everything is in bloom, many of those snow sport fans shift over to golfing, bicycling, running and hiking.

What can't you do here in summer? Our summer sports equipment includes stand-up paddleboards, kayaks and floaties (all are provided at no extra charge).

Fall brings us the fabulous colors, and things start to quiet down to an easier pace. Relaxing by the river remains a favored pastime, as well as most of the summer sports.

We welcome friendly dogs, and they give us solid paws up ratings, too. Dogs love the big riverfront backyard and they can swim right here!

It's easy for them to get in and out of the river when the double fences are open, and best of all for you, we don't charge extra for dogs.

Last summer, our cottage was rented every single day. The only thing I hate is when we are vacant, because that means someone is missing the

vacation of a lifetime. So I will deal for last minute bookings. But if you are really smart, you will book TODAY and receive your desired time. Look at my calendar; you will notice we book well in advance. So book early if I have convinced you this will be one of

the best vacations you have ever had.

It really will be.

About Jackie Haworth

Ray and Jackie Haworth are retired and loving life living on the river in Bend. Ray is a retired LA City Fireman and Jackie ('Jo Jo') is a retired antique store owner who enjoys being a grandmother.

We enjoy all the beauty of Bend's outdoors : Snow Skiing, Tennis, Kayaking and more. We love seeing the eagles fish on the river, and walking to our favorite restaurant for dinner and a movie. We walk everywhere we need to go!

We look forward to meeting you and making your vacation perfect!

Jackie Haworth purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Jackie Haworth chose Bend

We live on the River two houses away and we love living on the river so much we want to share the experience with others. Bend is a fabulous find. We love floating on the river, swimming, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding.

And of course in the winter, there is skiing, snow-shoeing, cross country skiing, and eating in all the fabulous pubs and diners we have in Bend, within walking distance of our home and rental cottage. Come join us you'll love it. Read our reviews; you'll see yourself writing one of these after your stay with us!

What makes this cottage unique

We go to the cottage to watch sporting events on the 55 inch T.V. or watch Blue Ray HD DVDs. Of course, if we didn't live here we would come for the River Kayaking, Floating, Concerts, First Friday Art Walks, Skiing, Les Schwab Amphitheater Events, Hiking and Biking.

There are so many reasons we left Laguna Beach for Bend, especially the four seasons. Everyone agrees it's a fantastic place to stay, and it would be even without all of the extras we provide such as the stand-up paddleboards, kayaks and swimming right outside your door!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This home right on the river in Bend was absolutely perfect for our short, mid-week getaway to Bend. We brought our 3 year old chocolate lab and she loved the big, fenced in backyard and had a great time playing around the river and exploring Bend. The cottage itself was so well appointed, very comfortable, and in a prime location near downtown Bend... We couldn't ask for more! We will definitely return here on future trips to Bend!

Zinful experience at that cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family, including our four legged ones, enjoy relaxing in the cottage. It is a great central location for hiking, shopping, golfing and biking..and we did it all! We love sitting in the backyard early in the morning watching the river and the early morning walkers/joggers. We have been coming here since 2010 and will continue coming year after year!

Excellent property, very well taken care of with plenty of extra special touches for our enjoyment.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful family time with our grown kids and 2 dogs. Great fenced yard for the dogs! Many special touches by the owner, like welcome wine, s'mores fixings, wood for the fire pit, and snuggly bathrobes. Can't say enough good about this place. Played croquet, and had picnic BBQ. Walked to town. So perfect. Book it now!

Just came home from a wonderful stay at this river front property. We didn't want to leave. Everything was very clean and there were lots of treats left for us including all the ingredients to make S'more's and a nice bottle of wine. Thanks so much Jackie. We can't wait to come back!!

Cute waterfront cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay in Bend. Right on the river and within walking distance of downtown and Mill district. On the road to Bachelor/lakes. Jackie is great to work with. Cottage comes with bikes, paddle boards, kayak, inner tubes. Lots of outdoor seating. Great relaxing atmosphere. House is very clean (sparkling white towels). We loved the shower! Well stocked kitchen. Lots of pots, pans, oven dishes, all utensils needed. Basic staples and spices too as well as a nice complementary wine and coffee. Inside dining area is a little tight if trying to get in and out. It's lovely though and very comfortable. We loved staying here. Our friends that stayed with us got totally into the pickle ball and ended up buying a set up for their own home

float or kayak right from the back yard. Kayaks and Stand Up Paddle Boards included. Walk to Les Schwab Amphitheater, downtown Bend or Old Mill. We now also have Stand-up Paddle Boards the favorite with our guest. Don't miss out 2 weeks left this summer. Fall is great on the River also, the water is still warm. Try us for Thanksgiving, you could dine in the Gazebo on the River. For you that want to do the Ale Trail, the breweries/restaurants are within walking distance, what a great way to spend a fall day.
