Welcome to the Lavender Cottage, your vacation rental home in Bend, Oregon!

About the owner: We are a young family who fell in love with Bend 15 years ago. I am a mom and an artist, and my husband works in the Solar Industry. We love to travel, and understand the importance of a good night's sleep! We feel so appreciative of our life surrounded by so much natural beauty here in Bend, that we wanted to share our authentic, easy going lifestyle with other travelers. We love that Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals is a locally owned and operated property management company, and we appreciate that they have a philosophy about celebrating Bend culture that is right in alignment with our own.

Why the Owner Chose Bend:
This cottage was originally our first home. Not to sound sappy, but we fell in love in this home! During our remodel, we put tremendous care into using green and found materials, such as the wonderful wood floors which come from an old steel mill. We put in all wood windows to bring as much of the outdoors in with us, and did all that we could to preserve the original Bend heritage and character of this very special home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Lavender Cottage is in an excellent location, on a friendly street with lots of big trees, kids on bikes, and Drake Park just a few blocks away. We believe that vacations shouldn't be spent driving around in a car! We have cruiser bikes for you to get a taste of how the locals get around!
