Why Theresa Skarsten chose River West

Beautiful parks and walking trails nearby. Numerous pubs, restaurants, shopping and activities nearby. Bend is a dog and bike friendly town.

Loved staying here. The house is very nicely decorated, well stocked, and in a great location. The courtyard is really nice and private. Being able to park in the garage is a great bonus. We would stay here again!

First time in Bend
We booked this house for two nights as part of a nine day road trip through Oregon. The house was very clean and the back area was lovely. Very quiet neighborhood and close to stores and restaurants. We had two dogs and the fenced in yard was great. Plus there was a nice park about four blocks fro the house that had a dog run area. Would definitely stay here again.
Quiet, private, comfortable, well located and responsive hosts!
We spent three weeks at Pine Cone cottage, and loved it for many reasons. The location is perfect for exploring a yoga studio (6 blocks), Dharma Center (10 blocks), Safeway grocery store (10 blocks) and resturants (3 blocks). There are hiking trails a 10 minute walk or a 10 minute drive. The owners Theresa and Bob are kind, quite responsive and helpful with questions or concerns. Bob brought over a fly swatter when a pesky fly got inside. The little cottage has everything we need: excellent beds, comfy living room recliners, a well appointed kitchen, well stocked bathroom, reliable WiFi, and our favorite…a wonderful private back patio with both sun and shade, perfect for reading and eating lunch and dinner. The fountain and bird feeders were felt just like home. The outside space was perfect for enjoying Bend’s exquisite summer weather. Quiet, private, comfortable, well located and responsive hosts made for one our best rental experiences.
Mother’s Day weekend
This was the perfect house for a relaxing getaway. Clean, quiet, cozy and great location. Backyard is perfect for dogs, and the house is stocked with ample supplies in case you need an extra doggy blanket or poop bag.
