LOCATION, LOCATION! Our newly remodeled 1940’s cottage in the heart of Bend is steps from Drake Park, Mirror Pond, and Downtown Bend. This quintessential cottage has everything you need for a perfect Central Oregon getaway.

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. There is a Mount Bachelor Shuttle just up the street that will take you to and from the mountain.

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 Rebecca Whitson

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!

Why Rebecca Whitson chose 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!!

Great house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house and close to downtown Bend. You can walk or ride bikes to everything. 6 of us, including teenage kids, had plenty of space. The basement is great with lots of games and activities. Kitchen is well equipped. Hot tub is nice. Shed is full of bikes (and bike pump and helmets).

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 mountain bikers found Riverside Cottage to be just what we were looking for. The spacious and well appointed basement accommodated several gals like a dormitory with their own full bath. The upstairs bedrooms worked perfectly for our couples -- with their own bathroom too. We liked the big well supplied kitchen, plus walking to Starbucks (4 blocks), Food Trucks (less than 1/2 mile), Pizza (5 blocks), and a multitude of breweries all within walking or riding distance of the house. The house was clean and just as described.

Perfect Bend location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 5 days at the Riverside cottage and loved it! The house was beautiful and very clean. We loved the big kitchen for cooking with everything we needed. The location couldn't have been any better. It was a quick drive to Bachelor for skiing and just blocks to great breweries and restaurants. We rode the bikes around town and to a great drop in yoga class and "The Yoga Lab" followed by delicious cider at the "Atlas Cider Co." right next door. We are looking forward to returning for a summer visit.

Great House/Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family trip to Bend, 6 adults and dog in the house and there was still plenty of room to spare. The house was beautifully kept, clean, cozy and had everything we needed! We took advantage of the fabulous location near the pubs, restaurants and town! The bikes and toys in the back shed were a great addition and there was enough for each person! Wonderful location, beautiful home and great experience! We will definitely be back!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I planned this trip to take our three daughters (21, 19 and 13) away during Christmas break. This was our first time in Bend and the house was perfect. The layout provided great get-together space but also private space for the kids to play games in the basement. The easy access to Drake Park was perfect for taking our dogs for a walk. There were many great places to walk for dinner or beverages. It was easy to get to the shuttle if the kids decided to head to Mt. Bachelor. I would certainly book again if we come with a group to Bend.

Riverside Cottage Near Drake Park / Galveston

  • 5 of 5

Four of us guys have been going on the annual guys' trip for years, and we decided to head to Bend a few years ago. We have stayed at this place for 2 years in a row, and we are definitely going back in 2016. The important reasons why this house gets 5-Stars are: the place is within a walking distance from downtown so we don't have to drive after having a few beers. It has 2 bedrooms upstairs along with a basement bedroom that has 2 beds since we are all happily married to women. (There is also a "cove" with a bed in basement so you can have 5 people sleep comfortably.) The last but not the least, the bathroom fans work fine, which is essential to guys' trips.
