About David Mendenhall

The owners of this property have recently added this third vacation home to their selection of vacation rentals in Sisters, one block from downtown Sisters. Their experience in Sisters also includes building professional and warehouse space for clients, teaching in the Redmond school system, building a home at Black Butte Ranch and just a desire to provide good high end service to those choosing to use their services. They currently live in the golf course community of Charbonneau in Wilsonville and make numerous trips to Sisters to enjoy the same scenery and mountain air that brings so many to the area. Their concierge, Jill Stanford, is their eyes and ears when it comes to providing hands-on quality service to all guests in all three vacation rentals.

Why David Mendenhall chose Central Oregon

The property that houses this condo and two others were built in 2002. We have taken a portion of the property and added this new interior wing to house our new addition to our line of vacation home rentals. It was built as a result of wanting to be close to downtown but in a sub-division is quiet and just a step away from bicycle and walking trails.

Feels like home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we found the Cottonwood Suite on vrbo! Immaculate, impeccably decorated, and furnished with everything you need for a comfortable stay. This suite has a wonderful private patio entrance. Great for coffee in the morning and your own reserved parking spot right there for easy access to your car. Our bonus was to have met the owners (the Mendenhall's ) whom we now consider friends and the on site manager Jill who was such a pleasure.

This location is such close and easy walk to downtown Sisters you can literally leave your car parked most of the time. We would not hesitate to stay here again and again!

Convenience for walking can't be beat if that's your priority but lacks outside ambiance

  • 3 of 5

This unit is located to provide perfect ease for walking to any destination in Sisters. It is modern, comfortable and well-appointed inside and we appreciated access to spa. The downside is this unit is located directly proximate to parking lot on two-sides and is attached to a commercial building. Your view - if sitting in the lounging chairs pictured on the website - is parking lot. So if you are looking for views or external charm/relaxing central Oregon ambiance look elsewhere.

Owner's Response: The owners are installing an attractive eight foot horizontal planter that will shield the one parking space referred to by this guest. The planter will give the patio area additional privacy while enjoying the view of The Sisters. The building is a commercial building but is quiet and the office nearest the entrance to this condo is an architect with little traffic. This portion of the building is one story. Many guests have returned to enjoy this lovely unit but the owners agree with this guest regarding the view of the parking space and are acting accordingly.

Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are hikers and arrived Saturday in Sisters at VRBO 442970 with a fantastic weather forecast. That first day we got a call from our son who was working in Argentina that he was going into the hospital there for exploratory surgery. We agonized all afternoon and that night got another call that he had abdominal sepsis. We immediately called the owners, knowing that we would probably lose the four night we had already paid. After almost two weeks in Argentina we are all home and well. Imagine the wonderful news that the owners told us to pick four other days on the calendar to come back to this absolutely perfect condo. It's spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, quiet, has great views, and the location is walking distance to town. I want to thank the owners again for their compassion. Stay here! It's terrific.

Such a great little place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Birchwood Suite the first 2 nights and it was wonderful! So we decided to stay another 3 nights but it was booked. The Cottonwood Suite was available so we moved to it. What a pleasant surprise. Not just your regular rental, decorated wonderfully, quality everything! Walking distance to the great little town of Sisters.

An added bonus was being able to talk with Jill, she is someone you just want to take home with you. Thanks Jill for making our stay the best, we will certainly be back!

Great little place but...

  • 3 of 5

The accommodations inside were super sweet, just as the pictures showed. One thing to note that we didn't understand until we got there was this this first-floor rental is part of a (strip?) mall and the windows all face into the parking lot. As in, no fence or any sort of obstruction. Like, people walking by are 2-3' away from your window. It is in the same building as an architecture firm's office and across the parking lot from a nail salon. So we kept the blinds closed almost the whole time, which is a shame because Sisters is so pretty. Just be aware of that and decide if that's ok with you, you won't be disappointed.

Of note, we brought our dog (approved by owners before booking). We didn't get any information about additional rules when we booked but when we got there we were told not to leave her alone in the rental, even though we'd brought a crate and kept her in there. Fair enough--I get that and can certainly appreciate rules. It was just crummy for us since we were there for a wedding (and had mentioned this to the owners when booking), so our plan had been to leave her while we were out. If we'd known the additional rules for dogs when booking that would have been our choice to come, but to have a surprise dropped on us made things a lot more challenging. It seemed a bit unfair.

Unlike other VRBO rentals with a cleaning fee, the rules for this house are that you are asked to do things like strip the bed, pile up towels, take out trash, etc. When I'm on vacation paying $140+/night, I suppose I just don't expect to have to do those things. Maybe I've spent too many nights in hotels and lucked out on other VRBO rentals where that's not the case, but I thought I'd share here. Full transparency.

Finally, be aware that there is no way to watch anything other than cable TV. No DVD player, no plugs into the TV to stream from your computer, etc. You might be thinking, "Who goes to gorgeous Sisters and turns on the TV?!" But at the end of a long day when you're thinking nothing would be better on your vacation than to indulge and watch an episode of XYZ show together, you'll be disappointed. I forgot how many commercials cable TV had and how variable and poor the programming is.

Owner's Response: We welcome reviews, even when they don’t always portray actual facts regarding our Cottonwood Suite. First, this rental is located in our own separate one and two story building with 3 rental units and, yes, an office for our long-term architectural tenant (a picture is provided of our building). The property is not a strip mall property, which would not be allowed under Sisters code! Secondly, we have added a lovely patio as previously promised and privacy wall on the entire west side to give guests an added place to enjoy and view the Three Sisters mountain range unencumbered (a picture is provided). Thirdly, the nail salon she mentions is located in excess of a 100 ft. of our building. Fourth, we do welcome certain breeds/sizes of dogs. This guest's dog was welcome and we explained perimeters of what we allow. The problem arose upon her leaving the dog in the rental and during the time she was gone (about four hours) the dog was in non-stop mode of howling and barking. We asked her to take the dog with her upon leaving out of respect for other guests. Our request was not well received so this review is the result. Fifth, we do ask guests to help with three minor things upon exiting that simply help when we have a very heavy turn-around schedule for our cleaning personnel. If guests don’t follow this request we never mention it to them and we do not keep any portion of the deposit as a result. And sixth, we've provided a 55” flat screen 200 channel TV for a large selection of movies, sports and news. The 4 & 5 star reviews posted by appreciative guests who have stayed in this rental, give a much clearer picture of why this Cottonwood Suite is so popular. We have had guests stay up to two months in the Cottonwood Suite and return for another visit.

Perfect getaway close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding one bedroom suite with high ceilings and beautifully decorated. There's no doubt that we will stay there again and next time, stay a day or two longer! All the comforts of home and so convenient being close to downtown and all Sisters has to offer.
