This is my 4rd 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
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.

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
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!
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!
What a wonderful home on the Deschutes! Jackie made this lovely little cottage so welcoming and lovely...we did not want to leave. Close to everything and perfect for our dog. We will come back!
WHO puts “Olio di Argan” products in the shower, New Zealand body washes in the bath, Nautica mats in both bathrooms , Ralph Lauren beach towels for the river, Fiesta Ware for everyday use, and luxurious bedding throughout?? Only a consummate designer gifted with vision as to how to make a rental a HOME. We are a 4th year rental family and have such admiration for the way Jackie & Ray have crafted this house to just welcome you….wine in the frig, fresh flowers, fresh candles, bath salts, kayaks, paddle boards, tubes, 2 kinds of bikes, great TVs/books/DVDs…..it just starts every vacation with a smile. There are 3 outdoor seating areas, one around a fire-pit……and the location is just great for tubing the river or watching others who do drift by! Clean, comfortable, fabulously located within walking distance of DT and truly generous & fun owners. ENJOY!
Exactly as advertised. Every creature comfort was at our disposal. Would definitely stay again (when the weather would allow us to use the outdoors ). That they accept dogs, was a plus as well!!
My family just returned from a week at this amazing home! Jackie provided EVERYTHING including SUP, kayaks, bikes, tubes and even wine as we walked into the door! I have never stayed at a more equipped VRBO... Ever! Our 2 year old had a blast playing in the backyard and I never worried about him due to the two gates protecting him from the river. We've already booked for 2017 and it's a good thing, because the summer is already totally full. We cannot wait for our trip next year!
Another amazing experience at the Enchanted Cottage! Jackie and Ray think of everything and this time we brought friends - who now also agree. We had both relaxing rain and glorious sun and we were equipped for it all thanks to their comfy and well appointed accommodations. Now our friends want to bring their family back to enjoy this terrific spot. We explored many new places as it is central to everything. What a great place, highly recommended.
We have stayed at Jackie and Ray's wonderful cottage so many times I've lost count. We keep coming back because it doesn't get any more perfect. The dogs love it, we love it. We feel content, comfortable, and totally relaxed when we're here and consider it "home". We roll in and roll out now like we own the joint (and wish we did). Jackie and Ray are the most interesting, accommodating, and delightful people who we now call friends. The location is ideal for anything you may want to do in this beautiful part of the world. If you can find a time to come to Bend and stay here, don't miss out. Cabo and Mikki give it 8 paws up!!
