The Lavender Cottage is an enchanting, classic Bend cottage built in the 1920's during Bend's Mill town heyday. Bright, sunny, and well cared for, this home is completely updated with all the modern amenities. The fabulous location on Bend's popular Westside, just 4 blocks from Drake Park, makes this home a perfect choice for an authentic Bend vacation experience.

Relax in your own private hot tub under a Central Oregon sky filled with stars!

Take a stroll to the heart of downtown crossing a charming wooden bridge across the Deschutes River, and meandering through Drake Park. Or wander a block and a half down to all of the fun shops and restaurants on Galveston Avenue. Enjoy a microbrew at 10 Barrel Brewing Company, a slice at Versante's Pizza, organic juice at Mother's (the locals fave), or an unforgettable fine dining experience at Ariana's Restaurant.

Enjoy the eclectic cottage decor while you relax in the comfy living room and enjoy a movie on the HDTV. Or, play games with families and friends.

Prepare an unforgettable meal in the fully equipped kitchen, there is sit down dining for 6. Or, cook out on the gas grill and dine on the deck-- Bend style!

On a breezy summer day you may enjoy the home's beautiful gardens filled with lavender, culinary herbs, and native plants. Relax and unwind under the stars in the private hot tub in the home's secluded back yard. Experience the true down-to-earth Bend lifestyle by taking the provided cruiser bikes for a spin around town.

If you prefer to get out of town and into nature, there are endless hiking and mountain bike trails just minutes from town. The spectacular Cascade Mountains and many lakes are and easy 20 minute drive providing endless opportunities for outdoor adventures. Phil’s mountain bike trails are an easy 6 miles to the West, as well as many walking and hiking trails along the Deschutes River right out your front door!

Oh yes, and did we mention world class skiing? Mount Bachelor Ski Resort is an easy 25 minute drive from Bend. This mountain is a blast, with a wide variety of terrain and trails that will keep you blissfully enthralled.

The Lavender Cottage is located in a quiet and quaint neighborhood surrounded by big trees in the heart of the popular Westside situated right in between Galveston and Newport Avenues. The location is truly exceptional!

Walk just a few blocks to Drake Park and meander around Mirror Pond. Relax under the 100 year old ponderosa pines and watch the lazy Deschutes River flow past. Cross a wooden foot bridge that takes you right into downtown Bend where you will find world class restaurants such as Zydeco, Joolz, Barrio, 900 Wall, and fun breweries, pubs and shops.

Or, you can walk to the popular shops and restaurants on Galveston Avenue, including 10 Barrel Brewing which is a great starting point on the Bend Ale Trail! There is Ariana Restaurant, fine dining in an old Victorian home, and many other fun shops and restaurants for you to discover.

Speaking of beer, Bend has more breweries per-capita than any other city in Oregon. Dubbed “Beer Town USA”, Bend is home to the Bend Ale Trail, a series of breweries you can travel to, and get your “passport” stamped every time you sample a different microbrew at one of the many outstanding breweries in town. If beer isn’t your thing, there are also several up and coming distilleries and even wineries to experience!

Feel free to hop on one of the provided cruiser bikes and explore Westside Bend like a local! You can cruise several blocks to all of the fun shops and restaurants on Newport Avenue. Stop into Chow for a fantastic breakfast with locally sourced ingredients, and live music out on the lawn. Visit Newport Avenue Market for groceries, and a dose of local flavor.

Hop onto the River Trail bike path, and cruise down through the Old Mill District to shop and explore down by the river. Catch a summer concert at the Les Schwab Amphitheater, or go see a movie at the IMAX theaters in the Old Mill.

There are so many fun activities for you to experience while vacationing in Bend, Oregon, and your vacation home is the perfect launch pad for all of your adventures! The Deschutes River runs through the center of Bend, and there are miles of trail to explore right in the heart of town.

For world class mountain biking, there are countless trails for you to conquer. The Phil’s Trail System is an easy 5 mile ride away! Just ride up Galveston Avenue, and it will take you right to the trail head. Stop into Pine Mountain Sports to rent a mountain bike and talk to their expert staff to find maps and all the gear you will need.

Road bikers will love the miles and miles of quiet highway that winds through forest down to Tumalo, a sweet little town just outside of Bend.

Another great way to experience Bend, Oregon is on the water! Rent a tube or kayak from Tumalo Creek Kayaks and “float the river” like a local. Or, head up the Deschutes for thrilling white water rafting! Bend has been recently dubbed as one of the best stand-up paddle destinations in the country. Have you tried this? Its a blast! And much easier than it looks.

Kids LOVE Bend! There is the High Desert Museum, Lava Lands National Park, and plenty of kid friendly outdoor activities. Your kids will love all of the parks and playgrounds, including “Pirate Park” off of Columbia Street, and “Tug Boat Park” just on the edge of Drake Park.

If you are wanting to get out and explore, Central Oregon offers endless opportunities to get out into nature. Century Drive will put you onto the Cascade Lakes highway where you will be deep in the back country in a matter of minutes. Grab a kayak or a stand-up paddle board and explore the spectacular Cascade Lakes! There are plenty of mountain hikes as well, ranging in levels from easy to challenging. South Sister offers an extraordinary summit opportunity, with views of Central Oregon that will take your breath away!

Oh yes, and did we mention world class skiing? Mount Bachelor Ski Resort is an easy 25 minute drive from Bend. This mountain is a blast, with a wide variety of terrain and trails that will keep you blissfully enthralled! There is a Mount Bachelor Shuttle just up the street from the Lavender Cottage that will take you to and from the mountain. Check out the Mount Bachelor website for the schedule and for weather conditions.

Traveling from Bend to the North will take you to Smith Rock State Park one of the premier rock climbing destinations in the world. Smith is great for hiking too! Pack a picnic and spend the day with your family. You will love the rock formations, steep ascents, and sweeping views of Central Oregon.

Traveling from Bend to the West will take you through Tumalo to Sisters, Oregon, home of the famous Sisters Rodeo, and the Sisters quilt show. Named after the towering 3 Sisters mountains that border the town, this sweet town has a Western feel with fun antique shops, a truly fabulous quilting emporium and some great little restaurants.

Welcome to the Lavender Cottage, your vacation rental home in Bend, Oregon!

 

Owner info

Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals Inc

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are a young family who fell in love with Bend 15 years ago. I am a mom and an artist, and my husband works in the Solar Industry. We love to travel, and understand the importance of a good night's sleep! We feel so appreciative of our life surrounded by so much natural beauty here in Bend, that we wanted to share our authentic, easy going lifestyle with other travelers. We love that Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals is a locally owned and operated property management company, and we appreciate that they have a philosophy about celebrating Bend culture that is right in alignment with our own. They take amazing care of our home, and will provide you with great service!

Why the Owner Chose River West, Bend, OR, USA:
This cottage was originally our first home. Not to sound sappy, but we fell in love in this home! During our remodel, we put tremendous care into using green and found materials, such as the wonderful wood floors which come from an old steel mill. We put in all wood windows to bring as much of the outdoors in with us, and did all that we could to preserve the original Bend heritage and character of this very special home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Lavender Cottage is in an excellent location, on a friendly street with lots of big trees, kids on bikes, and Drake Park just a few blocks away. We believe that vacations shouldn't be spent driving around in a car! We have cruiser bikes for you to get a taste of how the locals get around!
