About Michael

We walk everywhere and everything is just blocks away from this cottage. If you want to get out of Bend, Mt. Bachelor, lakes, hiking and mountain bike trails are all just a half hour away or less. Kayaking and floating the river are literally out the front door. Almost every weekend has a festival and/or live music in town.

Michael purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Michael chose Bend

There are few locations in the heart of Bend that are so centrally located to everything. It is in a charming neighborhood of older homes and every Wednesday during the summer is the farmer's market just a 5 minute walk. Thursday evenings include Munch n Music concerts in the park. Bakeries, pubs, restaurants, food carts, groceries and bike shop are a few blocks away.

What makes this cottage unique

This updated cottage was built in 1939. It has a large atic space that was converted to a master bedroom with it's own private bath, office/computer work station that looks out over the neighborhood with a peek of the river. Back yard is wonderfully private with a small fire pit, and gas barbeque. Bring your bike, kayak, and paddle board.

Beautiful home and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in your lovely home. The outdoor area is fabulous for relaxing at the end of the day or enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning. The house is comfortable and had everything we needed. Great location for walking downtown and to places on the west-side, close to the river for bike riding and taking a stroll. We wished we could have stayed longer, we love Bend! Thank you for sharing your home!

Adorable Bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and daughter competed in the Duathlon National Championships in Bend and this was a PERFECT place to stay! Charming house! So clean! Everything you could need in a vacation rental home! ( The only drawback was the constant jack-hammering on one day from the construction next door . Of course, this is just temporary -- other than that we would highly recommend this house!! )

A very comfortable home in a great spot in Bend. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay. Perfect size for two couples. Loved the back patio, BBQ grill and fire pit. Thank you for sharing your home.

Another wonderful vacation in Bend!

  • 5 of 5

We love this house! We enjoyed another vacation in Bend. This house is perfect. The location is great for access to downtown and the river walk. The backyard is cozy and private. The owner provides lots of amenities (comfy beds, well stocked kitchen, washer/dryer) making it very easy and fun to rent. We are looking forward to our next trip! Thanks again Michael!

Great house & location, but noisy

  • 3 of 5

The house is beautiful, well furnished, and in a great location. We loved being able to walk to the butcher shop and produce stand, pick-up morning bagels, or walk over for a beer at a choice of several pubs. However, the house next door is under construction, and for us this meant power tools, music, and workers yelling to each other from 7:30am to 5:30 or 6pm every day including Sunday. We weren't expecting so much noise, and found it difficult to relax and unwind.

Owner's Response: Mickey, I am so sorry about the noise, I have given you the last night for free. We had no idea it was so bad. We will be talking to the builder/owner in the morning. We work hard to make sure that our guests are comfortable and this is unacceptable. Thank you for your review. Michael

Incredible downtown location with Harmon and Drake Park across the street, pubs, restaurants, Newport Market, Bend festivals, and The Les Schwab Amphitheater a short walk/bike ride from the front door. The center of downtown Bend is a 5 minute walk. For families, the kids park is across the street and the downtown library is awesome..or walk over to Cuppa Yo for a great yogurt sundae.
