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.

Great property for groups close to all the fun in Bend

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the cottage. There was plenty of space for our group of a couple and two single guys. The backyard was comfortable without being huge and the hot tub was great. With a grocery store just across the corner and the city bus stop a couple blocks away we had access to everything we needed.

My only complaint was the paper processes necessary to rent the place and get information. It seems like VRBO was solely used to list the property. The app and website can put so much information conveniently at the fingertips of renters but sadly, were completely blank. Also given that VRBO has full payment and signup capabilities, it was quite frustrating to have to print, fill out, and re-scan the application document after booking on VRBO.

All in all, a great place to stay, with some frustrating paper policies.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for sharing how you enjoyed our Plum Cottage and the truly prime location. The west side of Bend has SO much to offer. I hoping you found the hidden breakfast gem called CHOW, just down the street. My favorite! I’m so sorry you felt the contract process was frustrating. The City of Bend requires that all legally licensed vacation homes get certain information like the parking policies and the ‘Good Neighbor” rules, into the hands of our guests before their arrival. We also like to establish personal contact with our guests as we have so many that have questions pertinent only to them. For example: Best bike trails for 12 year olds, floating the river access points and shuttle, restaurants for their anniversary dinner with a river view, off-leash dog parks etc. We are very proud of our Bend and want to share those special locals secrets to make your trip really great! Speaking personally, as a loyal VRBO user too, I have always found that those properties which take the time to establish expectations for their homes are always cleaner, well run, and very nice, making them worth the few extra minutes it takes to communicate well with the owner. Since you did enjoy the Plum Cottage, I’m hoping you feel very welcome back anytime and that we see you soon! Thanks again for sharing your feedback.

Girls weekend in Bend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Plum Cottage for a long weekend, and it was perfect! The location is great--convenient to everything, and having the grocery store so close by was an added bonus! The house was clean, cozy and had everything we needed. Would definitely stay again!

We stayed here in July/Aug 2014 and the place itself was nice. The location is great.

We have been visiting Bend 1-2 times per year for the last 8 years. This was the first time we tried this renter.

Overall the house was OK. The layout is not ideal given that you have to walk through the master bedroom to get to the outside.

The hot tub smelled!

Upon check out we were charged extra fees (despite having paid for cleaning and pet fees). Apparently there was "too much" dog hair (isn't that why we paid to have pets there) and the wash wasn't done. Given that we left at 6am on a Sunday we elected to put the sheets and towels in the washer but not run it so that wet laundry didn't sit in the washer for an extended period. Again we were charged extra for this!!!!

Overall this "nickel and diming" totally turned us off ever booking with this group again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know, very first thing, that you thought the Plum Cottage was nice and that the location was great. It really is! Our guests tell us frequently that our hot tub is the perfect warm and welcoming retreat after a fun Bend day, and we find that twice a week servicing always keeps it fresh. We are a local management company and could have sent someone over immediately if we had known there was an issue. I am so sorry you didn't find the other two hot tub entries through the garden gate or through the back door off the laundry area, in addition to the master bedroom access. We work very hard to make our home warm, welcoming, modern and exceptionally clean, and our extremely high percentage of return guests let us know that this attention to detail is appreciated. We treasure our own pets, so we really enjoy offering visitors the joy of traveling with theirs. As you are aware, we send simple housekeeping and pet instructions for our guest’s approval and signature, which you returned, agreeing to our policies. Minimal additional fees were incurred only when you chose to not honor those prearranged policies. I am happy to say that the vast majority of our guests are respectful of our home and therefore incur no additional fees. Thanks for taking the time to write and we hope you enjoy your future Bend visits.

4 of us guys stayed for a 2 day golf trip. The house is very nice and user friendly. The location is great within a mile of downtown Bend. The price was very fair. I would recommend it very highly.
