About the property

Riverfront Cottage on the Water THE PLACE TO BE! 2 Bed + 2 Baths Sleeps 6

Wow! I started in May 2010 how time flies when you are having fun! I am so happy I have been able to offer this fantastic vacation home on the river to so many wonderful people!

Enjoy spring skiing or on the hot and sunny days take a paddle board or kayak out right from our yard! We provide the boards and boats you enjoy the fun!

Since we began they have added a surf feature on the river! Surfers paradise ride the wave until you fall off. The city also created a safe passage for floaters so you can put in at the cottage float to Mirror Pond, take the bus up river, put in and float all the way back to the cottage! There are only a few rentals in Bend that you can do that from. We are uniquely situated right on the River between the Old Mill section and downtown. Many guests never drive their car the entire time they are here. Everything is within walking distance from the cottage, including tremendous brew pubs, restaurants and shops.

We set out to make our pet-friendly cottage a 5 star vacation destination home and that is how everyone has rated us. You must read our reviews! From the very beginning, our plan was to do everything we could to make your vacation perfect. We provide a lush and welcoming cottage complete with the finest quality furnishings and amenities.

You'll discover a beautifully-appointed kitchen with abundant spices and most of the basics you'd need for cooking. The living room has an enormous HD TV with Blu-Ray; the charming bedrooms are attractive and unique and also have TV. The baths offer your choice of a roomy shower or an antique ball and claw foot tub for a deep soak. There is a full laundry room.

We provide welcome wine, a s'more kit for the fire pit by the river; coffee beans and a grinder (with regular coffee maker and a French press) and so much more.

We have completely decorated our riverfront cottage thinking of your every need. The photos will knock you out! There is all-new flooring and carpeting, as well as all-new furnishings and linens to give it that great resort, clean feel. In 2012, we added new

kitchen appliances.

The French doors from the kitchen open onto a large deck and expansive yard directly on the Deschutes River where you can swim, fish or experience any river sports you wish! (There is double fencing for your children's security from the river and a fenced yard for your pet.)

There is a very cool outside bar, plus all kinds of dining sets with umbrellas, comfy Adirondack chairs !

Our Four Seasons: Each season has gems waiting to be discovered. In the winter, Mt. Bachelor is a mecca for skiers and boarders; plus, there are many areas to cross-country ski. Making snowmen with the little kids is such fun.

In the spring, you have baby ducks, geese, osprey, eagles and blossoms everywhere. As the greens explode in the trees and everything is in bloom, many of those snow sport fans shift over to golfing, bicycling, running and hiking.

What can't you do here in summer? Our summer sports equipment includes stand-up paddleboards, kayaks and floaties (all are provided at no extra charge).

Fall brings us the fabulous colors, and things start to quiet down to an easier pace. Relaxing by the river remains a favored pastime, as well as most of the summer sports.

We welcome friendly dogs, and they give us solid paws up ratings, too. Dogs love the big riverfront backyard and they can swim right here!

It's easy for them to get in and out of the river when the double fences are open, and best of all for you, we don't charge extra for dogs.

Last summer, our cottage was rented every single day. The only thing I hate is when we are vacant, because that means someone is missing the

vacation of a lifetime. So I will deal for last minute bookings. But if you are really smart, you will book TODAY and receive your desired time. Look at my calendar; you will notice we book well in advance. So book early if I have convinced you this will be one of

the best vacations you have ever had.

It really will be.

About Jackie Haworth

Ray and Jackie Haworth are retired and loving life living on the river in Bend. Ray is a retired LA City Fireman and Jackie ('Jo Jo') is a retired antique store owner who enjoys being a grandmother.

We enjoy all the beauty of Bend's outdoors : Snow Skiing, Tennis, Kayaking and more. We love seeing the eagles fish on the river, and walking to our favorite restaurant for dinner and a movie. We walk everywhere we need to go!

We look forward to meeting you and making your vacation perfect!

Jackie Haworth purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Jackie Haworth chose Old Bend

We live on the River two houses away and we love living on the river so much we want to share the experience with others. Bend is a fabulous find. We love floating on the river, swimming, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding.

And of course in the winter, there is skiing, snow-shoeing, cross country skiing, and eating in all the fabulous pubs and diners we have in Bend, within walking distance of our home and rental cottage. Come join us you'll love it. Read our reviews; you'll see yourself writing one of these after your stay with us!

What makes this cottage unique

We go to the cottage to watch sporting events on the 55 inch T.V. or watch Blue Ray HD DVDs. Of course, if we didn't live here we would come for the River Kayaking, Floating, Concerts, First Friday Art Walks, Skiing, Les Schwab Amphitheater Events, Hiking and Biking.

There are so many reasons we left Laguna Beach for Bend, especially the four seasons. Everyone agrees it's a fantastic place to stay, and it would be even without all of the extras we provide such as the stand-up paddleboards, kayaks and swimming right outside your door!

Spring Break Fun

  • 5 of 5

Always a great stay at the Riverfront Cottage! We enjoyed the yard, the paddle boards, the fire pit, etc. Hopefully we will be back for our 3rd time soon!

Owner's Response: Love having these folks back, they are very active, they golf and then enjoy all the amenities we have at the cottage, the paddle boarding, kayaking and the fire pit. They even had a fire going in the morning that they were leaving. I call people like this my regulars, love it, the truth is in the returnees! They won't keep coming back if it wasn't a fantastic place to stay. Next time they are coming over to play pickleball with us at our house, just two doors down from the cottage.

#1 rental in Bend

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottage! We’ve stayed in multiple homes on the river and this by far is our favorite! It’s a perfect size for 2 couples and the yard and river access is unbeatable! Jackie was so sweet and responsive! Couldn’t ask for a better stay! The cottage is decorated beautifully and is very comfortable. We can’t wait to come back, just wish we didn’t have to leave!

Great house on the River

  • 4 of 5

Jackie’s Cottage has everything you need to enjoy your time on the River and in Bend. The location is excellent for those that like to walk along the river. There are plenty of amenities, bikes, kayaks, great kitchen to cook in and plenty of outdoor furniture to enjoy the yard and river view. The fire pit is a very nice way to relax by after a day of exploring. The beds were also comfortable. Thanks Jackie, you have thought of everything.

float or kayak right from the back yard. Kayaks and Stand Up Paddle Boards included. Walk to Les Schwab Amphitheater, downtown Bend or Old Mill. We now also have Stand-up Paddle Boards the favorite with our guest. Don't miss out 2 weeks left this summer. Fall is great on the River also, the water is still warm. Try us for Thanksgiving, you could dine in the Gazebo on the River. For you that want to do the Ale Trail, the breweries/restaurants are within walking distance, what a great way to spend a fall day.
