The Penny Luck is a charming Cottage steps from Drake Park, Newport Avenue, Galveston Avenue, and Downtown Bend.

WALK EVERYWHERE! The Penny Luck Cottage, with charm and character, is a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom classic Bend cottage built in 1938 during Bend's mill town heyday. This home is completely updated with all the modern amenities, including new paint and carpet, and a fully updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

The fabulous location on Bend`s popular Westside make this home the perfect choice for a relaxing and authentic Bend vacation experience. The Penny Luck Cottage is just 3 blocks from Drake Park, 1 block from to Newport Market, Backporch Coffee Roasters, Spork and Chow and just 6 blocks from all the action on Galveston Avenue and the Bend Ale Trail.

Experience the true down-to-earth Bend lifestyle by taking the provided cruiser bikes (2) for a spin around town. You are a 5 minute bike ride to the heart of downtown, crossing a charming wooden bridge across the Deschutes River, and meandering through Drake Park. Enjoy a short stroll to great restaurants, pubs, shops and coffee, all just a few blocks away! If you prefer to stay in and relax, head up the one-of-a-kind spiral staircase to the loft were there is a flat screen TV, DVD library, free wireless internet, and cable. The couch folds out into a queen-sized bed for extra guests.

If you prefer to get out of town and into nature, there are plenty of hiking and mountain bike trails just minutes from town. Mount Bachelor Ski Resort and the spectacular Cascade Mountains with many lakes are an easy 20 - 25 minute drive providing endless opportunities for your outdoor adventures.

Create a fabulous meal in the fully equipped kitchen or cook outside on the gas grill. Enjoy your evenings on the patio with friends and relax around the propane fire-pit under a desert sky filled with stars.

This home proudly features European style bedding with fresh, clean duvet covers and high thread count linens, new, comfy beds, a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, washer, dryer, dvd, cable, free wireless internet, games, and much more for you to discover!

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About: Our family of 3 lives in beautiful Alaska but we need to get down to the lower 48 for some extra sunshine every now and then. We love to mountain bike, trail run, hike, climb, telemark, and cross country ski which makes Bend a perfect location for us.

              Why Bend:
              We each found Bend almost 20 years ago and have been drawn back to this fabulous, friendly town several times in the past few years. The high desert with it's warm sunshine and cool nights provides an ideal climate to enjoy all the outdoor activities we love and the mild winters make being in town easy with Mt. Bachelor and it's great snow just a short drive away. Bend also caters to the palate with so many amazing breweries and tasty restaurants. And we love that we get to walk or ride home after instead of getting in the car! The Penny Luck name came from a penny we found as we talking about some unexpected difficulties while buying the house and not sure if it would happen. We were amazed that it was 1938, the year the house was built, and took it as a sign. To our delight and amazement, all the pieces did fall into place and the cottage was ours. A true sign of faith for us. The penny is now shined up and standing proud on a shelf in the house!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Penny Luck Cottage drew us in as soon as we saw it. It has the character of the neighborhood and history of Bend while now providing modern amenities and comfort. The location is perfect with such easy access to Downtown, Westside, and Old Mill without having to drive. This is a big plus for us! The cottage is calm and comfortable, perfect for relaxing and truly feeling like vacation. One of our favorite parts of the cottage is the patio. With a nice grill to cook out on and propane fire pit to sit around on a cool evening and enjoy the stars. We love our dog but this house is not set for one as we have no grass area, only nice xeroscaping. On the other hand being without pets it makes it better for those with allergies. We hope those bringing their furry friends will find another nice place. Since we are not able to live in Bend right now we have the benefit of the boutique property management of Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals which makes your stay easy. The house is clean, has high quality linens and beds, and kitchen has all the basics you need with a few things more. Bluebird Day are attentive to your needs, can assist with almost any services or reservations, and will address any unexpected problems with quick response. We are pleased to have them manage Penny Luck and are sure they will make your stay a good one.
