Interaction with Guests
My family and I live 1/2 a block from the Westside Cottage, so I am available for questions during your stay. We have, however, set up the house with a house key lock box and lots of local info to allow guests to feel immediately at home from the moment they arrive.
This is my favorite neighborhood in Bend! I have lived here all my life and this is where I have chosen to put down roots. I love the proximity to parks, the river, and the walkability to everything you need. I like being in the center of it all, but still being located in a quiet neighborhood.
The Westside Cottage is located conveniently close to grocery stores, restaurants, trails, shopping...everything you need, you could walk to! Bend does not have an extensive public transit system, but by staying here, you won't need it.

This Westside Cottage is a cozy, homy spot with all the amenities to make you feel at home. We take comfort very seriously with high quality beds and luxury linens. It is central and walking distance to everything you need...seriously! Kick back, relax and enjoy this gem!

We came to Bend with our two adult daughters and our 2-year-old grandson so that one daughter could attend a conference and we could babysit. The cottage was very comfortable and helped us have a very homey and relaxed vacation.
We really appreciated having access to three tubes for floating the Deschutes! Also, the bedding is top quality! Katie and her brother were very responsive to our requests.
House was exactly as described, and Katie's instructions were clear and concise. My wife and kids all loved the house and had a wonderful time exploring Bend. House was very centrally located for all the excursions in the ares.
The little red house was perfect for our family vacation. We stayed here for two weeks and there isn't one thing we would change. As a family of three we had plenty of room. The home is nicely decorated, very clean and well stocked (whoa...towels!!). Our 3 year old daughter loved that the park was just right out the door. The garage is a Huge bonus for gear storage. The Sheldon's were always available and quick to respond with any questions. We will definitely be back!
Had a great stay during my visit in Bend. Her house was clean, had plenty of towels, comfortable beds, and a kitchen stocked with plates and cooking utensils. There were even games and books to keep our group entertained. The best part: it's in a great neighborhood in a fantastic location. We were in walking distance to multiple breweries, restaurants, food carts, the park, and the river. Katie was responsive and made sure we had everything we needed to have an enjoyable stay. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend. Highly recommend!
The Little Red House was the perfect home-away-from-home in Bend Oregon! Katie communicated efficiently and promptly about all of our arrival information and logistics. The home is well stocked with comfortable beds, fluffy towels, washer and dryer, maps and tips on restaurants etc.. everything you might need after a long day of hiking/cycling/rafting in Bend. We loved the location- just a block from the river, close to downtown and walking distance to lots of great pubs and restaurants. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Bend, thank you Katie!
I love the place. Great location along the river and by the walking path. 20 min walk from downtown. Very well maintained.
We really enjoyed our stay here. Very cute, clean and comfortable. My fiancé booked the space and he didn't read through any of the reviews so we were unprepared for the upstairs bedroom situation, which requires people to walk through one room to get to the other room. Not a big deal at all, we just didn't realize one of the rooms wasn't private. The location is great and it's a nice, quiet street.

About the Host, Katie
The Sheldon Family has been in Bend for nearly 40 years. We all love the outdoors. I can be found skiing, hiking, biking, snowboarding, floating the river, rockclimbing, or surfing the Oregon Coast in my spare time. My family and I have set up our vacation rentals with all of the comforts of home so you can relax and enjoy what Bend has to offer!
I work as a chemistry professor at the college in Bend fall through spring, and guide cycling tours in the summer months. I love meeting new people and sharing my favorite spot with visitors!
