Nice place

  • 4 of 5

This 2-bedroom cottage had everything we needed and was situated in a easy-to-get-to-anywhere location. The only suggestions I would make to the owner is to fix the light sockets, as a few of them could not hold regular two-pronged electric cords/plugs, and to get covers to keep the outside deck furniture clean from the elements and bird droppings. Otherwise, it was a great little place!

A mixed bag

  • 3 of 5

We spent a week at this property during the summer of 2017. The positives include the location (walking distance to the Old Mill District), a fenced backyard, a well-supplied kitchen, pet-friendly accommodations, and amenities such as a washer/dryer onsite. The house is priced to match its size. The negatives primarily include the overall cleanliness, as we needed to wipe down the counters and sink when we arrived and ended up finding a Leatherman in the couch. Also the house struggles to maintain a comfortable temperature in the heat of the summer.

Had a blast in Bend!

  • 4 of 5

This house was a great deal for us. We were in Bend for the Haulin' Aspen marathon and the house was perfectly located in a quiet part of town, yet near the river and great restaurants. We were able to take our dog because of the fenced backyard that was offered, which made our whole trip! The house was more affordable than any other accommodation being offered in town and was perfect for our needs. The owner was welcoming and helpful answering all of our questions and offering suggestions for our trip. Thanks!
