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 also enjoy playing pickleball in our yard, and all guest of the cottage are welcome. We give free lessons if you haven't played before. We look forward to meeting you and making your vacation perfect!
Jackie Haworth purchased this Cottage in 1998
Why Jackie Haworth chose Old 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 playing pickleball on our home court.. 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, and surfing the wave.. 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! And you can come play pickleball with us anytime during your stay.

First timers in Bend
We couldn’t have lucked into better accommodations. Central to everything and perfectly outfitted. Comfortable and clean. I miss the bed already.
Such a warm well equipped vacation rental!!! Felt like a second home to us.
Loved this riverside home. Had everything we and our pooch needed. The yard was perfect with lots of seating for reading a book or watching people float down the river. The home was comfortable and had everything we needed. Thank you Jackie for a wonderful stay in Bend.
Beyond our expectations!
We have stayed in many VRBO rentals and have never encountered one so accommodating and guest-focused. It is clear that Jackie has perfected being a host, as this house has it ALL! From the ideal location, fully stocked kitchen (and rooms), floats/boats/bikes (etc. etc.) -- the list goes on. It's very clean and updated and lives even larger than the square footage because of the huge backyard and layout. We literally didn't drive anywhere during our stay because we were able to easily walk downtown, to restaurants, several parks, etc. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Bend now -- it was that great!
Reviews like this make my day! The cottage and my guest are my only passion. I have no other job than to make the cottage perfect and my guest happy! My husband and I have been married 53 years and we remember our vacations more than any thing else, that's why we are in the business of making wonderful memories for other people!
Great location and house.
One of the nicest VRBO's I have stayed in, very well appointed throughout with a nicely stocked kitchen; and bikes, kayaks and SUPs to enjoy the town and the river.
Great hosts, house, backyard, and location! Will be back!
So fun teaching these folks the rules of pickleball, I bet they will put a pickleball court in their yard and have so much fun they won't return to Bend for awhile! So glad we got to meet them and play a little pickleball! Hope they come again soon!
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.
