This Cottage stay was simply amazing. Don was an incredible host and takes pride in providing a 5 star experience... I would give it 6/5. He's thought of every way to be hospitable and make your stay as good as can be. The cottage was quaint, private, remodeled, clean and comfortable. It felt like we were the first people to ever stay there... meticulously maintained! It felt like we were living in a Pottery Barn magazine. The location was perfect. We walked downtown every night and easily found lots to do in Bend. It was sad to leave The Cottage, but we'll be back :)

Response from Don:
"Thank you Katie for the great review! I really appreciate that you said a..."5 star EXPERIENCE". Marline and I recognize that lodging can be simply a place to slept but that is not what the Second Street Cottage is about. As you noted in your review, it is so much more. Typically, we spend over 4 hours cleaning, prepping and maintaining the Cottage between each new arrival. We want each Cottager (what we call our guests) to feel like they are the first to have ever stayed in it. As a comparison, hotel housekeeping staff are allocated 15-20 minutes to prepare a room. The difference is discernible."

This is one of my favorite AirBNB experiences! The cottage is beautiful and updated, and the hosts are very thoughtful and caring. The location is amazing - close to downtown, close to the river, and very easy to get to. The neighborhood is nice and it felt like we had all the amenities and comforts of home, including our own private patio. We plan to stay here again next time we are in Bend!

Response from Don:
Thanks for staying in the Cottage and taking such good care of it. The location seems to becoming more unique as the City of Bend grows outward, inward and upward. The Cottage being located on over a .25 acre lot which is shared by our home yet is only a 4 -5 minute walk to downtown. When you called to see if early check in was available and told me where you were having lunch, we both got a laugh. You probably have parked at the Cottage and walked to the restaurant faster than the time it took to find a parking spot downtown. Marline and I do hope you will return and spend time relaxing on the Cottage patio. DonP

If you are going to Bend you can not do better than Don's cottage. Superb experience on all fronts. Don was a great host and the cottage is beyond perfect. Best airbnb experience we've had and we've had many.

Response from Don:
Thanks for the great recommendation Jeff. Marline and I really do want our Cottagers (what we call our guests) to have a perfect stay. We are constantly looking for ways to improve the guest experience and always welcome feedback/suggestions/reviews. Perhaps that effort is reflected in Airbnb awarding us Super Host status 10 quarters in a row. Our promise is we will always try to do even better. DonP

The 2nd Street Cottage is in a fantastic location. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Many personal touches and little extras above and beyond other places we've stayed. Deer visit the backyard almost daily. The backyard is beautiful, but requires hours of daily maintenance by Don, which limits privacy in the yard and if you keep the blinds open. Overall it was a wonderful place to stay.
Don User ProfileDon is a superhost.
Response from Don:
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I wish you had responded to the weekly texts I sent you during your 30-night stay in which I repeatedly asked about your comfort, needs and/or concerns. I could have adjusted some of the gardening tasks to times you where away. I am also glad you pointed out the gardens require several hours a day to maintain. The Cottage and our home gardens were on the 2012 Central Oregon Master Gardeners’ tour and are a significant investment. Many of the prior guest reviews mention the beauty of the gardens and, like at any 5 Star resort, the gardens do require constant attention. The Cottage and our home are situated on over .25 secluded acres which in part, is why deer frequent the yard. Regarding any inaccuracy of the Cottage description, I wish you were more specific. However, I will add to it. Interested travelers will know that there is privacy glass in the Bedroom and small windows above eye level in the bathroom and kitchen. I will also clarify that the window in the Bedroom and all clear glass windows and doors are equipped with top down/bottom up blinds, allowing infinite choices for privacy. I will also add the Cottage has a full array of cleaning supplies, a broom, rags, and vacuum cleaner for those guests staying more than a few nights who might want to tidy up their environment.

Everything about the 2nd Street Cottage is amazing from its amenities to its location. My wife and I rented the cottage for Christmas and chose the cottage because of its proximity to downtown Bend. From the moment she and I arrived the two of us were totally happy with the choice. Don, the owner, had a split of Champagne chilled for us and he even invited the two of us to a holiday open house in his home next door. The kitchen pf the cottage has just about everything needed to cook from butter to salad dressings and the bathroom is furnished the same with fine shampoo to cotton balls. Since the cottage is just one block from the river there were up to five deer grazing in the backyard of the cottage. Add that to fresh snow and the two of us had a lovely white Christmas.

Response from Don:
Thank you for your business and glowing review. Marline and I try to not only provide an immaculately clean Cottage but also one which is well stocked with non-perishables. We know travelers often need just a dab of this or that. We want to reduce the time and expense of going to the store for small grocery items. Time saved from shopping is time now available to play. We hope you will return and enjoy the peaceful gardens and outdoor seating areas.

We opened the door and breathed in a deep sigh of "we're home." While we always focus on where are visiting not where we are staying, it was hard not to relish the special hours we spent at Don and Marline's classy and conveniently located cottage.
Don User ProfileDon is a superhost.
Response from Don:
Thank you for your insightful remarks. I think your observations would resonate with business travelers who are more focused on work than the "roof over their heads". Several of our frequent guests come to Bend for work and even inquire if the Cottage is available prior to setting their travel dates. We are always please to hear this cohort of guests remark that the Cottage truly does feel like ..."home away from home".

Don Ptacnik (say-Tack Nick) and Marline were married under the large White Paper Birch located in the yard between The Cottage and their home. Years later, one of their daughters was married ion the terrace overlooking the Cottage. We love our home and the large yard within which The Cottage is located. Marline is a health care executive and Don, your primary host is Marline's Gardener and Painter. We both enjoy people and sharing our secluded space in Downtown Bend. Don has lived in central Oregon for over 40 years and has participated in a number of activities which has provided him with a broad base of knowledge in the available outdoor opportunities. You are welcome to ask for suggestions ranging from the best hikes, automobile tours, bicycle trails/routes to the hidden jewels of coffee shops, museums and other cultural offerings.
We want our guests to be pleasantly surprised by the luxury and charm of The Cottage, the grounds and of course, the overall experience. We recognize guests have numerous choices competing for their entertainment dollars and want to provide excellent value and a memorable experience. When every guest departs our goal is to hear them say ...”We will return and will recommend The Second Cottage to all our friends”. So far, so good!
