About this listing
We have three charming cottages all located on one corner of Bend's popular west side. A perfect way for larger groups or families to vacation together but also enjoy some privacy. Enjoy well stocked kitchens, BBQ, hot tub and complimentary bikes.
In the Mill House there is a sunny porch area; great for family dinners and reading the paper over coffee.
We have three quaint cottages that have all been updated and decorated with great furnishings and amenities. We list each cottage seperately, or you can book all of them as one booking if you have a larger party.
The Mill House is the largest of the cottages with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, laundry room, eating porch, large living room, and a well stocked kitchen.
The Sparrow House also has two bedrooms ( 1 queen, and 1 double), 1 bathroom, a large kitchen, and is complete with a washer and dryer.
The Arrow House is the smallest, a studio cottage, but some would argue "best use of small space". This cottage is complete with a little kitchen, a great king size bed, and sitting area with a day bed, and our favorite a double head rainshower!
If you reserve the entire property you have access to a huge outside area with two fire pits, 3 BBQ's, a hot tub, outdoor shower (for summer time rinse offs after floating the river), herb garden, and complimentary bikes.
Interaction with Guests
We love to meet our guest when they are checking in but sometimes the timing doesn't work therefore, we have detailed check-in instructions so that you may arrive at your leisure. We pop in and out every now and then, and of course are available if you have any questions, but for the most part we leave you to relax and enjoy your vacation!
The cottage is around the corner from Columbia Park, where the famous Freedom Ride finishes on the Fourth of July, a children's park with a pirate ship, and a put in to float the river. A block to the south is the ski bus that takes you to Mt. Bachelor. The cottage is within easy walking distance to Deschutes Brewery, Good Life Brewing, and Back Porch Coffee. A quick bike ride takes you to the breweries and restaurants of Galveston and downtown.
Off street parking is provided and it is an easy walk or bike ride to a lot of what Bend has to offer. When flying into Central Oregon, use the Bend-Redmond airport which is about 25 minutes away in Redmond, Oregon. It is served by Alaska Airlines, United Airlines and Delta Airlines and is a full service airport with both jets and commuter planes and all of the big name rental car companies.
