Sweet stay at the Plum

  • 5 of 5

My family of 3 recently spent several nights at the Plum Cottage, conveniently located to everything one would need during our stay. not only was the cottage exactly as shown, it has a warm and comfortable feel that makes you feel cared for and content. The beds were so comfortable and the amenities complete. it sparkled when we arrived near midnight, so we just dropped into the cozy beds and fell instantly asleep. Great coffee from The Backporch is a perfect place to start your day and Chow has awesome breakfasts and lunch and is just a block away. Everyone smiles at you at the Newport Market too! The cottage has an easy to follow set of rules and directions to the airport. Ashleigh was extremely accommodating and made the booking process simple. A definite high five and we would stay here again without question.

There’s no place like Plum!!

  • 5 of 5

The reviews I read before booking tell the story. Great location for Bend in general, easy to get to Mt. Bachelor, great food and coffee a short walk away, and a clean, quiet, comfortable place to relax.

But, it is easy to write a good review when everything is perfect. The true measure of quality is how the host responds when things go wrong. The garage door developed a particular quirk in that it would not close in the evening. Erin promptly sent a repairman to deal with the problem while we were out for the day. After two visits, we concluded that changes in temperature created the problem.

She texted, “Oh goodness. Must be caused by the cold nights. I’ll call our garage door company and schedule a new door replacement after the holidays. Thank you for letting me know, and I am sorry we could not fix it permanently while you were here. Hopefully it’ll still work fine in the daytime for you.”

Erin tried really hard to make things right and clearly felt bad when this was beyond her control. Her attitude and approach make this property a place I’ll visit again.

In short, a great time at a great property managed by a great host.

Adorable House in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for some out of town guests. Erin is absolutely lovely to work with and she was so accommodating. She met me at the house early to leave a food basket and gifts for my guests. The house was extremely clean and well stocked. I loved the barnwood and ski details. Perfect for Bend. The hot tub was amazing in the adorable and private backyard. It was very quiet at night and peaceful. It is conveniently located close to town and behind our favorite market!!!! It was so nice for our guests to have the market right there because they did not have their own car. Thank you for this wonderful house. We will rent from you again if we need a place for guests to stay. It was the perfect experience! BRAVO!!!!

Fantastic location and great house

  • 5 of 5

My sister-in-law and I stayed there with our 4 teenage kids for 5 days in Bend. The proximity to downtown was fantastic and we walked along the river every night. The grocery store being a 60 second walk from the house was great too. The house was very comfortable for all of us and we loved the bonus of the hot tub. I had a question about something when we got there and the management was very responsive. We loved this place and would absolutely stay there again.
