Guestbook comments from the owner

First time in bend. What a great town! Checked out a good number of breweries. met our daughter and her boyfriend for the weekend. We enjoyed your house immensely. We played Scrabble and watched "Blair Thumb". The hot tub was relaxing too. We rolled around on the bikes too! Great location. Thoughtful amenities! Highly recommend this gem of a rental. Would stay here again if possible.

Adorable and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cottage for a minimoon after our wedding. We brought our dog with us and were so happy they allowed pets. The cottage was everything I expected based on the photos and description, no disappointments at all. The inside is spacious, clean and cozy. Favorite features were: Master bath huge walk in shower with dual shower heads, master bath wall heater, living room gas fireplace and the backyard with lots of seating options and hot tub! The location cannot be beat, its just a 10 min walk to downtown, the river and hiking trails. Short 10 min or so drive to other hot spots in Bend. Many of the breweries are walking distance or short drive also. We found a favorite breakfast/coffee/cocktail spot walking distance called Bad Wolf Cafe - excellent food, cold brew coffee on nitro tap, and home infused vodkas for a killer bloody as well as 6 mimosa offerings.

Perfectly Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Bend. We flew in from Atlanta, GA. Met our son and his girlfriend and had a fabulous time. Soooooo beautiful! And of course the house was amazing. Perfect location. We walked everywhere when in Bend. Used the hot tub as much as possible. Had breakfast every morning on the deck. So pleasant. One morning the coffee maker stopped pumping water. We called Lisa and she was there with a new one within the hour. Lisa is one of the best things about this rental. She is amazing. She keeps everything running smoothly and the house immaculate. We definitely plan on coming back. Our next trip is a house hunting trip. Can't wait. But in the mean time my son and all his friends and their families plan on checking this house out. Can't go wrong.

Great house; great location in Bend!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a long Halloween weekend in Bend while staying at River Run. The house was very clean and cozy (with charming decor!); the kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals; and the location was centrally located in Bend - right near the park and downtown shops and restaurants. We particularly enjoyed the fireplace and hot tub! We will totally come back here next time we're in Bend!

It really is such a treat to be able to easily stroll right into our wonderful historic downtown and all of Bend's great dining, galleries,shops, brew pubs and more....Come back soon and do it all over again....

This was our second year to Bend for Mountain Biking and my friend was so fortunate to find this cottage shortly before our departure from B.C. The cottage was perfect for the two of us as we had lots of room for all our "stuff" and the kitchen was great for eating breakfast before riding and making lunches to take with us. Although we weren't around much to enjoy the beautiful, well kept yard, I did manage to make it into the hot tub one evening and was impressed with the size and jet action. We enjoyed being close to great shops, bike stores and parks along the river. Definitely we would recommend this cottage to others and hopefully we will be able to return on another biking trip. (some other members of our biking group were quite impressed with our comfortable, clean, and roomy accommodations)

Loved our stay at the River Run!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at River Run while in Bend for a wedding over a very warm long weekend. Needless to say, the AC was perfect--both for us and our Frenchie, Lily! The home is furnished and maintained immaculately--we really appreciated all of the amenities. I had to work a little while I was there (sigh) so the built-in desk in the kitchen / sun room was very convenient and the wi-fi worked perfectly! We hope to be back--thanks again!

Owner's Response: I too have to work when I am on vacation, and I too appreciate a convenient desk. We must be kindered spirits as I have never heard anyone but myself comment on a desk----love that you did! I too think this house is really COOL in so many ways, but in the truest sense of the word (on those 99 degree summer days) its literally REALLY COOL! Enjoy your summer and come back soon.

Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our little dog and another couple stayed at the River Run Cottage for a week. It is such a cute cottage and in a wonderful location. It is easy walking distance to the river and to downtown. It is not a far drive either to the Old Mill District for additional shopping, dining opportunities. The cottage is also VERY clean and well appointed! Really enjoyed our stay and would love to stay again if our travels bring us back to this area.
