Response from Don:

Thank you for taking time to write such wonderful review. We really do want our Cottagers’ to be surprised with all that we do to enhance their lodging experience. The only surprises we want our guests to have are good ones. We purposely understate some of the subtle benefits of staying in the Cottage. We have put ourselves in the shoes of guests. We have no need to embellish the description of Cottage. If an owner or manager overstates the property, it just starts off a visit with disappointment. Our numerous reviews attest to our attention to detail.
And yes, the seclusion is most unexpected being just a 4 minute walk to downtown. Deer frequent the grounds and often sleep in plain sight of the Cottage. We were honored to be selected to have our gardens included on 2012 Central Oregon Master Gardeners tour. Kick-back, sit in the sun, read a book or just day dream. The gardens are for relaxation and rejuvenation. We want you to enjoy our little slice of paradise.

Thank you for the detailed review. Since the Cottage is not on a street but rather a lightly traveled alley, it is secluded and peaceful (the deer attest to that). I was ride my bike around neighborhoods this morning and noticed what appeared to be travelers enjoying other vacation rentals. What struck me was that those travelers seemed to be out in the public’s eye and sort of cramped by surrounding properties. That is not the case with the Second Street Cottage. While just a 4-5 minute walk to the core of downtown Bend, it is set in a very secluded garden environment which invites relaxation and privacy. We recently constructed an addition to the main house (our home) which further increased the privacy for Cottagers and us.
Marline and I strive to anticipate what our Cottagers might want or need. We provide numerous seasonings and condiments. Our current guests spent time floating the river but forgot to pack their beach towels. I smiled and told them we had some available in the Cottage storage locker. They also forgot their Northwest Forest Pass but quickly remembered there is a “loaner” pass in the Cottage.
I hope you and your husband will come enjoy the Cottage…and do tell your friends about it too. DonP

Thanks for the great review Jason and mentioning the pre-arrival information we provide Cottagers. Our philosophy is that the lodging experience begins when one makes a reservation. We provide details about amenities, thorough directions and combination deadbolt operating instructions. We want the traveler to KNOW they have made a good decision to stay in our Cottage. There are many lodging choices in Bend and we try to set ourselves apart with extraordinary communications and responsiveness to questions. We put ourselves in the shoes of our guests and try to anticipate nearly every need. Come back anytime Jason.
Footnote: Jason had a late night check-in and had no problem finding the Cottage or getting inside.

Thank you for your detailed review. As frequent travelers, you clearly appreciated the many “little things” we provide for our Cottagers. The less time (and expense) a guest spends chasing down the goodies one has in their home kitchen or bathroom, the more time there is for playing or just relaxing. We want all of our Cottagers to experience a unique lodging experience—sounds like we met your expectations! Please do come see us again, perhaps mid-week this summer or fall.

I am glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return soon. Thanks for mentioning that the Cottage was "pristine". When I first started receiving guest reviews, it quickly became evident that travelers really do appreciate immaculate lodging. When I tell guests that I spend 4+ hours cleaning between each Cottager, they always remark that it shows. And if a guest has any questions or needs, Marline and I live on the grounds and respond immediately. At their discretion, guests can enjoy privacy or interact with us; your hosts.
