Bend cottage description

The Autumn Cottage has been lovingly designed to offer our guests the full flavor of Bend. This cozy heritage home also provides you with many modern ammenities for your comfort. Consistant upgrades and our personal touches will ensure that your stay in Bend is as special as the area itself.

This Cottage has two bedrooms (one king size, one queen size) a nice bathroom with shower/tub combo, a well appointed kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and comfortable living space with gas fireplace, flatscreen TV/DVD/I-pod dock, desk area, and free Wi-Fi to keep you connected.

You can also enjoy our fully fenced backyard that has a gas BBQ, outdoor bistro table, and private HOT TUB for your 'end-of-a-fun-Bend-day' soaks under the stars.

As an added bonus The Autumn Cottage is just a short 1 block stroll into the historic downtown and the fine dining, galleries, brew pubs, shops, and the Deschutes River. You can walk to it all....or ride one of the 2 vintage bikes we have for your use during the summer season (Memorial Day to Labor Day) The basket holds a growler of local brew or a loaf of fresh baked French bread just perfectly!

The Autumn Cottage has truly been a home-away-from-home for many Bend adventurers over the past 15 years. We invite you to become one of them!

                            My husband and I recently spent three nights in the beautiful Autumn Cottage. What an incredible treat! The house is adorable, the space well planned out and super comfortable. It has all the amenities, all listed in this provide, but the ones that we most enjoyed were washer/dryer (great for us after a long road trip!), hot tub, BBQ, extremely comfy bed, a growler for guest use at one of the many breweries in the area, and the PERFECT location. Seriously, it couldn't be better located - it's a block to the Old St. Francis School pub, and two blocks to downtown, where there is a ton of shopping, dining, etc. We absolutely loved this house, and don't have a single criticism. We hope to be back for another visit soon!

                            Owner response: I love, that you love, the Autumn Cottage! ...and what a thoughtful gift your wonderful review was to me this holiday season....I appreciate you taking the time to write. Please come back soon and experience more of my Bend---she's a peach! Happy Holidays!

                            We rented this little cottage for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The location is perfect, walking distance into town close to all the shops and restaurants. We could've walked to the Old Mill Shopping District, but opted to drive since we had a car :) The cottage photos online are as it is, clean, comfortable, fairly quiet location, has everything you need for a vacation. My husband enjoyed the hot tub after a long day of exploring and dragging him through boutiques! Also spent a bit of time at the outlet mall in town, got a great deal on a Coach purse! Enjoyed the numerous brew pubs in town, food is great everywhere. Cannot wait to return, would highly recommend this little cottage. The owner is very prompt in responding to questions, very friendly. See you next year!

                            Owner response: The one-of-a-kind shops in the historic downtown make shopping so wonderfully unique....but that Coach store is a treasure in it's own right! Good for you---come back and dine, shop, play, pub-hop and enjoy. (The hot tub will be cookin' for your patient husband too!) Thanks for the great note!

                            This property met or exceeded all expectations. The furniture and decor was high quality and tastefully done. Beautiful hard wood floors and a perfect blend of character and modern updates. Lots of little extras that were very appreciated: free use of two cruiser bikes to get around town, empty beer growler to be filled at one of Bend's many fine breweries and fresh coffee/grinder for morning joe. Nice appliances throughout, including the hot tub. The bedrooms aren't huge, but I wasn't expecting them to be, however the king size bed in one (queen in the other) was another welcome surprise. Location couldn't be better, quiet side street only a few blocks from the old down town. Would stay here again for sure.

                            Owner response: Thanks for noticing---When we design our cottages we really strive for them to maintain their own unique personality, and yet have all the modern conveniences---tickled that you thought we did that! Please come back soon for another "Bend Cottage Experience"---we'll work hard to make sure you love every minute!!

                            What a cool and lovingly designed home offering all the modern amenities a person/ pet would want. Our week flew by way too fast. And the location could not have been better. A very short stroll into downtown and all the coolness that Bend has to offer. The two 2 vintage bikes were awesome – felt like we were 5 years old all over again – brake, what brake! Pet friendly was appreciated and thanks again to Lisa and team for that. We can't wait to get back

                            Owner response: I agree....historic downtown Bend is best experienced on foot or on a bike with a basket for that special bottle of wine, fresh chocolate, or loaf of french bread that begs to come home with you. I am delighted you were delighted!! Riding "brake free" is only exceeded by riding hands free! Come back soon and try both all over again.....

                            The Autumn Cottage is the perfect location to downtown Bend with the heart of the city right at your front door. Easily walkable to some of our favorite restaurants like Jackson's Corner and Sarah's Raw and Vegan Cafe. The cottage is charming and cozy with all the amenities. The backyard with hot tub is private, quaint and well maintained. The owner was extremely helpful and quick to communicate. We enjoyed this property for 3 nights and found it the perfect resting place after our daily activities. The only downside to this property is the light that shines outside one of the bedroom windows, so bring your sleeping mask! We were pleasantly surprised that despite being right in the heart of town, it was extremely quiet at night!

                            Owner response: I enjoyed reading your review and appreciate you taking the time to write. The Autumn Cottage is a favorite of mine too---being able to stroll to the historic downtown in just minutes really is a treat, and I too love the fresh goodies at Jackson's Corner. Our master plan for the Fall is to replace all the windows in this cottage with new, super efficient, historic wood windows. As soon as that big job is completed we will install new window coverings as well. I appreciate you letting me know about the street light so we can make sure we address that when we choose our new shades. We want every night to be restful so our guests can go hard the next day, enjoying all the FUN Bend recreation!! Hopefully we'll see you our direction again soon--THANKS!

                            We stayed at Autumn House the week of July 4 and the cottage couldn't be more perfect for enjoying the annual Pet Parade (and everything else Bend has to offer). We're animal lovers and always appreciate dog-friendly lodging, such as this great house. We enjoyed watching the horse participants get ready for the parade in the field across the street, then walked with our elderly Lab all of one block to the parade route. And that night the parking lot across the street was PERFECT for viewing the Pilot Butte fireworks. This is our second visit to Bend, and while we liked the houses we rented last year, we were awed at how beautifully decorated and clean Autumn House was, and the meticulous outdoors space. What a cute place and perfect location close to downtown shops, breweries, farmers market and First Friday art walk. We brought our own bikes, but vintage bikes were provided, which is a nice plus. We also kept our kayak on top of our car and didn't worry once about its safety. The kitchen was perfectly maintained and I have to note the high-quality utensils that were provided. And the growler was an awesome touch....we filled it with Mike Saw Sasquatch from 10 Barrel (highly recommended!) And Lisa was great to work with...I got laid off on my 2nd day of vacation (thanks, crappy organization I used to work for!) and Lisa was great about letting me get my severance package FedExed to her home (this was far beyond what is expected of a rental manager..thanks again, Lisa!) We hope to experience Autumn Cottage again...perhaps in a season we'd love to spend in Bend...autumn!

                            Owner response: I have lived in Bend a long time and I know first-hand how FUN all these special events are--- but your excitement made it all seem fresh to me once again--thankyou for that! (What a great city I get to live in) I am so excited that you got to experience so many Bend traditions and we do hope to see you back our direction this Fall. September is a favorite of mine.....cooler mornings, sunny days, star filled evenings, and all that dang good food and brew! We also just completed the backyard project and now have an awesome 'secret garden' ready for wonderful outdoor dining. Pictures up on my website by weeks-end...take a peek.... Thanks again----Lisa

                            This is the perfect location…close to downtown, the Old Mill, Les Schwab Amphitheater, the Deschutes River Trail, and I could go on. When you’re finished with your day’s adventures Autumn Cottage is a cozy place to come home to. It has all the amenities and is the perfect size for a group of 2 – 4. We visit Bend every year and this was our second stay at the cottage; it does not disappoint.

                            Recommended for: Tourists without a car, girls getaway, pet owners, age 55+, adventure seekers, sightseeing.

                            Owner response: Thanks for the nice note---I am thrilled that you so enjoyed beautiful Bend and The Autumn Cottage. Thanks also for sharing the driveway with the delivery of new paver bricks while you were here too---we start on the pressed patio Monday, then the "secret garden", then the gazebo and outdoor dining nook. We cant wait for you to come back for your visit #3 and be amazed! Have a great summer and see you soon! Lisa

                            We spent a very comfortable and happy week at Autumn Cottage celebrating my husband's birthday. Bend is a favorite destination and Autumn Cottage enhanced this destination: immaculately clean, perfectly furnished, and within walking distance of everything downtown and just across the way from McMenamin's. We launched forth to a new hiking trail each day and returned each night to our cozy cottage for some hot tub therapy before walking downtown to a great Bend dinner. Autumn Cottage is just like a great vacation at home only better! we will definitely be back! Thanks, Lisa, for a wonderful week.

                            Owner response: Thank you so much for the nice note Ann. One of my very favorite things is to spend a day doing "FUN BEND STUFF" and then to relax those sore muscles in a hot tub while star-gazing. Sounds like you discovered my secret formula to a great nights sleep too! Icing on the cake is being able to stroll just one block to great local dining----nothing better than having someone else do the cooking once in a while. Maybe you shouild make this a birthday tradition--- Love to have you with us again.... THANKS AGAIN!

                            This is a lovely place to stay. My son, 23, and I both loved everything about it. You can walk out the door and be in downtown in about 2 minutes for your morning coffee, or make a pot and sit in the sunny backyard. We bar-b-qued, we walk to local restaurants, we even used the bikes and rode around the neighborhood. You just couldn't ask for a better location. The furnishings are so welcoming; beautiful antiques, and the linens are especially nice. We will be back.... unless we buy our own place to stay! Thanks Lisa for your excellent service and lovely place.

                            Owner response: BJ- I am so happy to hear that you and your son enjoyed the Autumn Cottage and Bend so much---that is our ultimate goal with each and every guest. Truly summer in Bend is just hard to beat though---there is SO much to do here! We will gladly welcome you back "home again" anytime you head toward Central Oregon----if you dont own your own place by then you can borrow ours! Thanks again--I do sincerely appreciate your business! Lisa

                            I just returned from a weekend stay for Mother's Day at the Autumn Cottage and it was perfect. The location made it possible to just park my car and walk to great restaurants, boutiques and coffee shops. Beautiful Drake Park is also just a couple of blocks away. The king sized bed was very comfortable and the lines were very luxurious. The Autumn Cottage had everything I needed and a hot tub too! I will be staying there on my next trip to Bend.
