About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Plum Cottage is a warm and welcoming, family-friendly vacation home. Fully remodeled in 2018, this house reflects the seasons of Bend. It is nicely and newly furnished with everything you need to make your Bend experience a truly comfortable one. The Plum Cottage features three bedrooms with sleeping for up to six guests: One king master, one queen bedroom, and one bedroom with two twins. This home has two good size bathrooms, one with a bathtub and one with a lovely walk in tile shower.

The well-stocked kitchen gives you the flexibility to create meals at the house, and is nicely open to the living and dining space so the cook can enjoy the gathering too. This desirable heart-of-the-Westside location allows you to walk a short distance to popular Newport Market where you can purchase locally sourced food, gourmet items, Oregon wines, and unique Bend products. In addition, within just a few short blocks you can easily stroll to experience some of the best local dining and microbrew pubs in Bend.

The Plum Cottage is the perfect place for work or play. Inside, it is complete with free wireless internet, a full size washer and dryer in the laundry room, new heating and A/C system, and plenty of open living space. Outside the backyard is fully fenced and we welcome you to travel with your four-legged family members. The private hot tub is always warm and there is nothing like a soak under the clear Bend skies after skiing, boarding, or biking. There is a gas BBQ for grilling seasonally and a secure garage for parking or to store your Bend play toys like bikes, kayaks, or skis.

Just around the corner from Phil's Trail (known for its amazing mountain biking), on the road to Mt. Bachelor, and blocks from the Deschutes River, this cottage is perfectly located. Why the name? The Plum Cottage is aptly named for the sun-kissed fruit that ripens right on the trees that surround this home in the spring and summer --- Bring your baskets as we love to share!

Three bedrooms (sleeps up to six)

Master bedroom suite with king bed

Second bedroom with queen bed

Great place to touch down in Bend

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is nicely appointed, and very clean. It has everything you would need to stay for a night or a week. It is comfortable and is in a great location. You can easily walk to downtown Bend, and all of the great spots in-between. We will definitely look into staying here in the future!

The walk into downtown is such a nice stroll and I am so glad you took advantage of all the shops, restaurants, and of course the grocery store along the way. See you on your next visit.

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.

Owner's Response: What a lovely review, and your kind words made my day! I love sharing our beautiful city with our visitors and we try to do all we can to make your stay a great one. It sounds like you had an all-around good visit, and the garage door was just a small part of that. Thank you for being so understanding! Sometimes, unexpected things happen but we try our hardest to remedy them quickly. That is one of the BEST things about being local ourselves... we're just a few minutes away. I am so glad you got to experience the city and visit Mt Bachelor. Come back and give our new doors (and brand new remodeled kitchen and bahtrooms) a test drive!

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!!!!

Owner's Response: A perfect experience... we LOVE to hear that! Bend is such a wonderful place to show off to our visitors, and the location of The Plum Cottage does indeed make that easy. I am so glad you had the chance to show them around! The quiet setting mixed with the close proximity to the Newport Avenue area does make this house nice and convenient. The Newport Market is my favorite grocery store too! Thank you for booking this house for your guests... I am glad we exceeded your expectations and we'll happily welcome them again on their return.

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.
