About this listing

Located on the "best street in Bend," (just a ten minute walk to downtown), our craftsman-style cottage offers bright hues, the warmth of a woodfire stove, an open layout with a cozy loft, high ceilings, a full kitchen, and plenty of natural light.

The space

This lovely Westside home offers loads of natural light with a very clean, open-air layout. Enjoy a spacious kitchen and living room (with wood burning stove!), side porch, upstairs bedroom with balcony, a smaller downstairs bedroom with loft, two full bathrooms, garage, and zero-scape yard. WiFi, as well as a washer and dryer.

A perfect space for 2-5 people, our 12-year-old, 1200 square foot home is within walking distance to Newport Market, Sunnyside Sports, Backporch Coffee Roasters, Nancy P's Bakery, Spork, Cuppa Yo, Chow, Kebaba, and Kampai. Downtown proper, which includes Deschutes Brewery, Lone Pine Coffee Roasters, and Barrio (Spanish tapas bar), among dozens of other establishments, is just a ten minute walk. Pretty much everything is within 5-15 minutes of our doorstep, with trails (Shevlin and Phil's trailhead) only 15 minutes by bike, and 1st Street Rapids two minutes by bike. Skiing at Mt. Bachelor is a short 35-minute drive up Cascade Lakes Highway.

Expect peace, quiet, and relaxation while enjoying breakfast among the flowers and greenery of our front yard, or an evening meal around the fire pit. As well, alley access with parking out back is safe and secure.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the garage (for storing bikes, kayaks, skis, etc.), upstairs bedroom and bathroom, downstairs bedroom and bathroom, loft, the kitchen and living room, as well as the outside patio and garden. Basically everything except the tiny wooden shed!

Interaction with guests

If you are renting the entire home, we will not be here! So you will be interacting with us only as much as you care to text or call.

Other things to note

We are pretty minimalist in our home-living approach. If you are looking for fancy wine glasses, an abundance of appliances, a widescreen TV (or any TV for that matter), and expensive furniture... you will want to look somewhere else. If, however, you are thinking: neat, clean, cozy, wood burning stove, simplicity, and so on, then come on in!

James and Laura made check in so simple with a key in lockbox. They communicated quickly via text answered questions and were so welcoming. They were so generous with their beautiful home; a note welcomed us to anything in the fridge and cupboards during our stay. What a relief to have coffee on the ready! James and Laura also contacted us a few days before arrival to ask how we'd like the bedrooms arranged. There was a quaint fire circle, which was an excellent place to hang at the end of the evening. The house was cozy but also spacious. We were in walking distance to down town, great restaraunts, the river, and shopping. We had a blast, and we are so grateful James and Laura shared their home with us.

The place is well maintained and very comfortable. Kids loved it, especially the loft, and so did we!

James and Laura were very helpful and answered all of my questions right away. Their home was perfect for our stay during our son's Cascade Classic Pro bike race. The 3 of us were comfortable and had all the space we needed for our bikes, cooking, sleeping, etc. The location was perfect for walking or riding our bikes to numerous restaurants, coffee shops, and breweries. We hope to stay again next year!

The house was every bit as bright and comfortable as the pictures depict, and made for a great three day stay. It was a wonderful home base as we explored the area, and we'd definitely rent again if available when we next return to Bend.

We had an amazing stay in Bend - James and Laura were fantastic hosts! They left great instructions and were available if needed by phone or text. The house is beautiful - super clean, comfortable and very well equipped - and centrally located. Easy walk to downtown area (even for a 3 year old!) - restaurants, grocery store and coffee shops are all within a few minutes walk. Perfect base for exploring Bend - we hope to be back soon!

We live in Bend. It's great. Laura is a wildland firefighter and masters student and James is a reporter and also in a masters program. We're both writers, bike nerds and general outdoor recreate-ers who enjoy good food, drink and conversation. Cheers.
