what i love most about my home is who i share it with...
The Stilson Family is absolutely amazing! They have a beautiful home and family and have built an incredibly cozy and well stocked cottage. The location of the cottage was idyllic as we were close to many bike and running trails. The porch swing and the Keurig machine were handy accessories used to start off a beautiful morning in Bend.
I stayed at the Shelvlin Cottage while attending my daughter's wedding in Bend and it was the perfect place to relax before and after the event. The neighborhood is quiet and yet located close to town. The Stilson's were helpful, friendly and the perfect hosts!
A dreamy stay in Bend. This place is adorable with its Martha Stewart-esque decor and it is quite spacious. Newer washer dryer convenient for longer stays. Cottage fully equipped with effiecient equipment to prepare a meal. Very clean and comfortable. Great West side location close to shopping and dining as well as hiking, cycling, and running routes. Owners in main house are very nice, welcoming, and also non-intrusive should you have your own schedule and plans. A very nice and safe place to stay for a single travel or could make for a couple's stay. I look forward to returning and it is now my 1st choice to stay in Bend. The pictures are real and how the property appears in person. You will not be disappointed!
The cottage was perfect, as were the hosts! We will rent again whenever we visit Bend, and it is available.
This is the most adorable place. It has everything you could want and feels like you stepped into a Martha Steward magazine. I'll definitely stay here the next time we're in Bend.
The cottage is GREAT. Hosts are GREAT too!
The cottage is perfect for couples who want privacy and quiet, yet very close to town and all amenities. The Cottage is beautiful, well-equiped, great layout, very efficient...such a great place to stay, we can't wait to go back!
Oh !! No !! The best kept secret in Bend is out!!
Quiet...new....centrally located for skiing, hiking, golf...beautifully appointed !!
I rate this 5 out of 5!!
I had the privilege to stay for a month in the charming and well-equiped cottage owned by the Stilsons in the chic, quiet very safe wooded area of NW Bend. It is well situated to vacation/work in the surrounding cities of Sunriver, Sisters, and Redmond with easy access to all the major transportation arteries.
I was able to have a private retreat with its very efficient double fireplace servicing both the bedroom with its kingsize bed and adjoining family/TV/kitchen room. The bedroom has a walk-in closet where the quiet washer/dryer is discretely nestled inside and a master bathroom worthy of a full-size house. Storage area is generous for clothes and shoes. The family room is comfortable to view the large flat-screen TV and to access the efficiency kitchen with its full-size refrigerator, microwave, toaster-oven, expresso machine, and special permanent hot-water system for tea. There are many windows to make the cottage cheery during the day, and the ceiling spot lights keep it cheery at night! Parking is situated right next to the cottage.
The Stilson host family was hospitable, warm and always wanting to help outsiders like me. Thank you for your welcoming spirit and making my stay restful and productive. My work takes me to many States and I would easily rate this cottage 4.5/5 ~ only because there is no oven !
