About the property

Everyone loves Bluebird Cottage! Come enjoy a wonderful vacation in this lovely cottage home. Well worth the price, this renovated Old Mill Cottage sleeps a comfortable 4 and a cozy 7 with a Pillowtop Queen bed in one room, bunk bed in other room ( full bed on bottom and twin on top) and a Queen pull out couch in living room.

Located right in the heart of Northwest Bend in the middle of it all, just a short walk to the Deschutes River, Drake Park, the Galveston Corridor, Downtown and Old Mill.

Nicely furnished with all high quality bedding, full large kitchen setup, large pine dining table, central gas heat, big back porch with patio/umbrella set and BBQ and hot tub, fully fenced yard for the kids and pets, and washer and dryer.

For entertainment, the cottage has a wonderful deck with high patio set and umbrella in a fully fenced backyard where you can gaze up at the night sky or bask in the sun and relax after a day of skiing, riding, or playing all day in the outdoors. There is an hot tub available all year round. The cottage also features 2 bike cruisers, wireless internet, cable TV on large flat screen television, DVD player with movie collection (or a Red Box just down the street), and sleds available upon request in Winter/Spring. The back deck is wonderful and relaxing in the warm summer days. In the Summer months there is an air conditioner.

The information folder in the cottage has sections on great restaurants with maps, outdoor activities, where to food shop for groceries, hospital info, a kid section, pet section, and much more.

Baby and kid friendly - crib, highchair, bathtub, stroller, baby/toddler hiking pack in basement ready to use. There are three great parks with playgrounds within a short walk from the house. The large information folder in the cottage has a huge section on kids activities including maps to all the parks and stuff to do in Bend with kids -we know since we live here with young kids!

Pet Friendly- there are dishes for the dogs, a bed and a section in the folder for the dogs! There is a great off leash dog park on top of Overturf within walking distance- about 7-10 min walk, with a map and directions to it. Also the folder describes the other close dog parks and off leash areas.

The cottage is located 3 blocks from the River, a short walk to Downtown and Drake Park and Old Mill, a 1 minute drive or 5 minute walk to the 'Park and Ride' Shuttle to Mt Bachelor, and 30 minute drive to Mt. Bachelor. At least a 2 night stay, $65 cleaning fee and 10.4% lodging taxes and pet fee.

About Lisa

Hi there! We are Jeb and Lisa with 2 kiddos and live in Bend on the same block as the Cottage. We have lived here a while and bought another house on our block to have as Bluebird Cottage. It is great for us because we can have our family stay there or rent to out to other folks. We have met the most wonderful people who have stayed at Bluebird Cottage and really enjoy providing accommodations to travelers. We are avid outdoors people and enjoy snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking, paddling, rock climbing and backpacking. We love Central Oregon and hope you come stay at our wonderful Bluebird Cottage!

Lisa purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Lisa chose River West

I fell in love with the Old Mill Historical homes when I moved here. They have a wonderful history, great charm, and the perfect size for a vacation home. We also live in a remodeled Old Mill home on the same block and love the street and the neighborhood. It is close to everything to walk or ride bikes or to drive up to Mt. Bachelor in less than a half hour.

What makes this cottage unique

It is very close to Drake Park where all the festivals happen each summer. But far enough so its no too loud at night that you can't sleep! It is a few blocks from the beautiful Deschutes River and Columbia Park, Overturf Park, Harmon Park and Drake Park with playgrounds at three of these parks. There are pubs all around to walk to including 10 Barrel and Goodlife and Cascade as well as Deschutes Brewery where they do tours. Downtown is within walking distance and many great restaurants. In the Winter, the Shuttle up to Mt Bachelor is a 5 minute walk and the cottage is a few blocks from the main road (Century) up to the mountain. It is on a nice quiet street, great neighbors, and still close to all the many great places in Bend.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in March at Bluebird Cottage. We had the best time and it was in a great location. It is on a quiet street but really close to a lot of the great places to walk to in Bend. The bed was really comfortable and the whole place was clean and cozy and had everything we needed. The hot tub was a little hot so we called Lisa and she came right away to turn it down a little and then it was fine. Overall 5 stars!!

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and i really enjoyed our stay. The location is close to great restaurants and you can walk to the downtown area. The beds were very comfortable and having the fenced in yard for the dog was fantastic. I also really appreciated having the washer and dryer available as well as the varied pantry items made it very convenient. Would definitely stay again!

We very much enjoyed our stay in Bend at this property. It is great to be able to walk to stores and parks and other locations. The house has a bright and welcoming feeling, with nice touches.

Great location, nice yard for dog.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location for our doggie vacation. With the fenced yard we never worried that our over loved pet was somewhere he was not allowed. Location was great for floating (short walk from take out spot) and river trail.
