Super charming cottage. Suits our family well, stays amazingly cool on hot days, and is an easy walk or drive to all that makes Bend great. Owners are helpful and super easy to communicate with. We've stayed at this house twice now and look forward to our return.

Quiet home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The house is a very short walk from at least 3 brewpubs and several permanent food trucks. The neighborhood is very quiet, so I wouldn't recommend it for raucous gatherings, but it was perfect for our family.

Cozy cottage that feels like a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The Wildness is a place where you can relax after exploring the downtown life in Bend. The moment you walk in, you feel like you're at home. The bedrooms are clean and beautiful; the beds are cozy and welcoming. I would definitely stay here again!

charming home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at Inn Wildness. The house was prefect for us. The inside had a rustic charm about it. There was plenty of space for our family of 4. There are hooks everywhere (indoors and out), which was great. The appliances in the kitchen were some of the nicer we've seen in rental homes. We were too busy to watch the large TV, so it remained "hidden" away (in a cabinet), which gave the room a more relaxing atmosphere. But we liked how if you wanted to fill the space up with a movie, it would be very easy to do. The outdoor space was beautiful and nicely landscaped. We spent an hour or two each day, relaxing and playing in the yard. There were 2 cruiser bikes available to use, which was great. Bend is such a bike friendly place. The house is also in a great location. It is only a few blocks walk to the breweries on Galveston and the food trucks, and only a couple blocks walk in the opposite direction to Newport and the grocery store and coffee shop. There is a school with a playground 2 blocks away.
