Experience the authentic Bend lifestyle when you wake up to sunshine and walk across the street to Drake Park and the idyllic Deschutes River. Stroll through the historic neighborhood to Downtown and enjoy one of the many great restaurants, breweries, galleries and shops. Walk across the bridge and the ultra-popular 10 Barrel Brewing Company, your starting point to the Bend Ale Trail, is a mere stroll away. Hop on a cruiser bike that we provide, and ride along the river to the Old Mill District to enjoy an IMAX movie, shopping, or riverside dining.

World class bike trails, paddle boarding down the river, live outdoor concerts at Les Schwab Amphitheater, and the winter shuttle to Mt. Bachelor are all right out your front door of the Riverside Cottage.

This fantastic location is just the beginning. Enjoy relaxing in the private hot tub under the stars, or hang out on the wide front porch and watching the day go by-- Bend style! Or, cozy up in front of the fireplace and watch hundreds of cable channels on the flat screen HDTV, or enjoy a movie on the wireless BluRay DVD player. The open floor plan is ideal for families and friends!

Create a gourmet meal for the entire family in the fully equipped, newly remodeled kitchen, or cook out on the gas grill, while you enjoy the private patio.

Downstairs is designed for fun in the spaciously remodeled family room. Play a game of foosball, enjoy a board game together in front of the second fireplace, or join in a game on the Wii from our collection of disks. Spread out with the whole family for a BluRay DVD in HD or take a quiet respite and enjoy a great selection of books for all ages from the library.

A third bedroom with a double and twin bed, and a sleeping nook are also downstairs. This is a great set up for multiple families with kids or groups of friends! The 1800 sq. ft. has a cozy cottage feel while providing room enough for everyone without feeling crowded.

This house is fully equipped with all the amenities you need for a one of a kind Bend vacation. There are tubes for the river, sleds for the snow, and cruiser bikes for you to explore the Bend neighborhoods!

If you prefer to get out of town and into nature, there are endless hiking and mountain bike trails just minutes from town. The spectacular Cascade Mountains and many lakes are and easy 20 minute drive providing endless opportunities for outdoor adventures. Phil’s mountain bike trails are an easy 6 miles to the West, as well as many walking and hiking trails along the Deschutes River right out your front door!

Oh yes, and did we mention world class skiing? Mount Bachelor Ski Resort is an easy 25 minute drive from Bend. This mountain is a blast, with a wide variety of terrain and trails that will keep you blissfully enthralled.

About Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals

When we moved to Oregon 7 years ago we knew we had found somewhere that truly felt like home. But when we discovered Bend, we felt like we had found heaven. Bend is the perfect combination of stunning beauty, unlimited outdoor adventure, and vibrant town life. We love being able to walk downtown, snowboard and walk along the river all in one day.

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!

The Izora Family

Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 2012

Why Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals chose Old Bend

We have always loved bungalows and cottages and when we found Riverside we knew it was a perfect fit. We set it up for our family of 6 to enjoy the amazing splendor of central Oregon. We feel privileged to make it available to you and your friends and family, and look forward to welcoming you as our guest at Riverside Cottage.

What makes this house unique

The Riverside has all the charm of an Old Town Bend cottage with the added benefit of a lower level family entertainment room that gives a larger family or group of friends a chance to spread out and not feel crowded. Our favorite benefit of the Riverside Cottage is its location. We love coming to Bend and walking everywhere! The cottage is literally just across the street from Drake Park, and just a short walk to Downtown Bend through the charming Old Town Neighborhood. We also love being so close to the river, and the bike and walking paths to the Old Mill.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great 2 night stay at the Riverside Cottage. We played numerous board games and are now seriously considering getting a foosball table for our own house! It's a lovely home in a great location. Thank you!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families with 2 boys. They slept down in the basement with the WII and Fooseball. Adults slept up. Perfect! House has been totally redone and is so comfortable and really spacious for our group. Walking distance to downtown and the Old Mill District. Would definitely stay here again, but for a longer time!

Bend's Best

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this house for 4 years in a row now and we are heading back again next year. This place is so close to everything, once you arrive, you don't need to drive anywhere (except for golf courses but then you can take Uber as many drivers are nearby this house all the time). Highly recommended except for those days that we are booking.

Overpriced and under cleaned

  • 2 of 5

This property has potential but at a high cost, it was very disappointing. The place was not very clean with cobwebs in the bedroom and a serious accumulation of dust under the sofa in the living room. The kitchen was barely equipped adequately and there was a half used pack of coffee indicating the lack of attention to detail from the renter/cleaners. The cleaning fee is a joke.The basement beds were substandard. The back yard was so small that the hot tub was cramped in a corner right next to the fence on two sides.

The location of the cottage is good, close to downtown Bend but the house itself could be a lot nicer and cleaner.

Overall we felt cheated by the cost of this house, especially with the lack of attention to detail.

Great location, perfect for our multi-age group.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cottage, especially the proximity to downtown, food truck court, Drake Park and the bike/walking path. The house itself is furnished in a comfortable "homey" manner, making it easy for us to enjoy our time together sharing a meal and downtime in the hot tub. Would definitely recommend.

Friends weekend

  • 5 of 5

Close to everything, we walked everywhere! We went to great restaurants, concerts, shopping and floated the river. The house was cute and clean and a great place to hang out after a day in Bend. Super fun weekend getaway!
