About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Close to everything that's great about charming Bend! Walk a few short blocks to Newport Market (gourmet groceries), organic food store, coffee house, bike shop and popular local restaurants. Or stroll across the Deschutes River at famous Mirror Pond to downtown with its numerous breweries and restaurants.

Remodeled in 2012, this open floor plan home features a great room with a large living room, cozy bar space by the wood burning stove, central kitchen area (the cook is center stage) and dining area with a sliding glass door out to the deck area. A perfect family or entertaining area. The kids can be playing a game on the table while one of you is cooking up a storm in the kitchen and the other is watching their favorite show in the living room on the comfy couch. All together and yet with separate spaces for their favorite activities!

The flat screen TV and entertainment center features surround sound with a CD library (or you can plug your ipod in to listen to your own tunes), Blueray player with DVDs and WII FitPlus with balance board and several games. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils and all you need to feel at home, including spices and other essentials. The dining area has an extra buffet area and/or desk space.

The Master suite boasts a queen size Temperpedic bed and a private bath. The additional two bedrooms feature new pillow-top queen sized beds with a full bath between the two. We supply shampoo, conditioner, soap and all linens. You'll love the feel of our 400 thread count sheets and microfiber blankets!

Fully fenced yard is kid and pet friendly. There are several outdoor spaces to enjoy as well as a BBQ and fire pit. Plus Bend is an amazing outdoor adventure waiting to happen. Awesome skiing at Mt. Bachelor, renowned mountain biking trails, floating on the Deschutes River (or a white water rapid trip), rock climbing at famous Smith Rocks, hiking the Three Sisters Wilderness or fishing in the Cascade Lakes. And don't forget Bend's indie breweries (Deschutes, Cascade Lakes, Bend Brewing +), great local restaurants and special events like music in Drake Park in the summer or at the Les Schwab outdoor amphitheater - there is so much to do and see here on the sunny side of the Cascade Mountains!

About DeLise

We've loved coming to visit Bend since the 1990's with it's east of the Cascades sunshine and high desert weather. We live on the coast so Bend is our perfect mountain get-a-way.

DeLise purchased this house in 2011

Why DeLise chose Bend

The Ogden House is on Bend's west side which is so accessible to everything that we hardly ever drive once we get to town. The kids love all the outdoor activities in the area, especially the skiing and bike riding but also the river activities and events in the parks. There is also a world class climbing area, abundant mountain hikes, lakes to explore or fish... the list goes on and on!

What makes this house unique

We walk everywhere when we stay at Ogden House!

Cozy, very clean, close to everything

  • 4 of 5

Great stay! Highly recommend the property! Be sure that you play the Exploding Kitten card game while you are there! A real hoot!

Loved the warmth of the wood stove and all the available chopped wood. Both bathrooms have heated floors. Terrific for early spring nights! Had a minor question for the owner on the first morning of our stay and received an immediate response. Only gave a 4* because the ice maker in the freezer was not functioning. All else was wonderful! Enjoy your stay!

Wonderful Stay!

This was a wonderful house for our group of 5. There was plenty of space and it is walking distance to all that Bend has to offer. We will absolutely be staying again!

Great westside cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We have two young kids (ages 3 and 1), and a dog, and there was still room for another guest. The open floor plan is great, and it's an optimal location. Would definitely stay here again!

Lots of stipulations & rules

  • 3 of 5

There are lots of stipulations & rules for this property, more than the norm, eg., "Pets should have a flea & tick treatment three days prior..." Must have car plate number and names before receiving key code. Very detailed instructions on where to park although none of the places, including the garage were accessible due to snow. I feel this should have been communicated beforehand. Living space is small for a 3 bedroom place. What seemed like a reasonably priced house became expensive with the cleaning fee, VRBO fee and taxes all added in. Location would be good if there was less snow & ice.

Owner's Response: The snow in the city of Bend this year was a record not surpassed since the 1980's. It caught all of us by surprise including the city. Unfortunately alleys are not a high priority for plows when the main thruways of the city need to be cleared for safety issues and the off street parking at the house is behind the garage. There is street parking. However, I apologize for not mentioning the historical snowfall the town had received this winter when this guest booked as I made the mistake of assuming since they were coming for winter play they would have known about the snowfall. Our house rules are the template that VRBO suggested years ago. Again, my apologies if they seemed excessive, this is the first feedback like this I have received. I will review them for updating.
