The RIVER GEM BUNGALOW is a bright and cheerful one bedroom treasure nestled in the heart of Bend with a location that can’t be beat!

Right across the street from the Deschutes River, the River Gem is within easy walking distance of the Old Mill District, historic Downtown, Les Schwab Amphitheater, numerous breweries, restaurants, shops and movie theaters. The Bend Ale Trail is just a few blocks away!

Directly behind the house is Bend’s newest park, Miller’s Landing: a riparian strip of riverfront with osprey nesting, walking trails, and excellent river access.

Only a few steps away is a charming footbridge that takes you over the river on an easy walk to Columbia Park and “Pirate Playground”, a wonderland for kids.

This fun and contemporary home features high ceilings, lots of windows, a cozy loft and artistic touches that highlight the authentic Bend lifestyle. There is HDTV with cable channels, DVD with a DVD library, and free high speed internet..

The bedroom features a high quality Queen sized bed with 100% cotton high thread count linens and a down duvet, because there is nothing more important on your vacation than a good night’s sleep!

Cook a meal with friends in the fully equipped kitchen which includes a dishwasher, microwave, oven, and all of the cooking utensils you need for entertaining. Or, cook out on the gas grill under the Central Oregon sky filled with stars.

Relax on the deck or under the aspens in the big backyard, surrounded by mature trees and landscaping

If you prefer to get out and explore, there are plenty of hiking and mountain bike trails just minutes from town in the Deschutes National Forest. The spectacular Cascade Mountains and many lakes are an easy 20 minute drive providing endless opportunities for outdoor adventures.

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 Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals

We are a couple of nerdy engineers originally from Texas and New Mexico. Our free time is spent crashing our mountain bikes, walking our dog in the forest, and playing with our young daughter.

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!

Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 2010

Why Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals chose Bend

The ease of access to the outdoors really appealed to us. We moved here in 2007 and have loved every minute of our time here. The small town qualities of Bend lend itself as a perfect place to raise our daughter.

What makes this house unique

This house is situated in an amazing location. The Deschutes River is just steps away. Downtown, the Old Mill, numerous breweries, Les Schwab Amphitheater, bike trails, parks and more are all right out the door!

Nice cottage for family of 4 close to River, Parks and Shopping

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the centrally located cottage for our family of four & 1 dog. The amenities in the cottage were nice, including tubes for floating the river and bikes-if you needed them. It was great to be able to walk to Drake Park, local breweries (10Barrell & Crux), shopping/dining in Old Mill District and jumping on running trails along the river.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved the little bungalow. Just steps to the river trail for our morning walk and easy distance to downtown and the Old Mill District. We go to Bend every couple of months to visit family and will be renting this house again.

Truly a gem!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the awesome vacation rental. We fell in love with Bend and will definately be coming back. The location of the River Gem Bungalow is great for beer lovers like us, as there are about six breweries within walking distance. The bungalow is next to a park and a second park is easily accessable by crossing the river. The neighborhood is lovely and easy to walk around. Not only is beer easily reachable by walking so is great food and downtown shopping.
