Walk across the bridge and the ultra-popular 10 Barrel Brewing Company, your starting point to the Bend Ale Trail, is a mere stroll away.

This fantastic location is just the beginning. Enjoy relaxing in the private hot tub under the stars, or hang out on the wide front porch and watching the day go by-- Bend style! Or, cozy up in front of the fireplace and watch hundreds of cable channels on the flat screen HDTV, or enjoy a movie on the wireless BluRay DVD player. The open floor plan is ideal for families and friends!
Create a gourmet meal for the entire family in the fully equipped, newly remodeled kitchen, or cook out on the gas grill, while you enjoy the private patio.
Downstairs is designed for fun in the spaciously remodeled family room. Play a game of foosball, enjoy a board game together in front of the second fireplace, or join in a game on the Wii from our collection of disks. Spread out with the whole family for a BluRay DVD in HD or take a quiet respite and enjoy a great selection of books for all ages from the library.
A third bedroom with a double and twin bed, and a sleeping nook are also downstairs. This is a great set up for multiple families with kids or groups of friends! The 1800 sq. ft. has a cozy cottage feel while providing room enough for everyone without feeling crowded.

About Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals
When we moved to Oregon 7 years ago we knew we had found somewhere that truly felt like home. But when we discovered Bend, we felt like we had found heaven. Bend is the perfect combination of stunning beauty, unlimited outdoor adventure, and vibrant town life. We love being able to walk downtown, snowboard and walk along the river all in one day. 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 and preserving Bend culture that is right in alignment with our own. They take amazing care of our home, and will provide you with great service! The Izora Family
Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals purchased this House in 2012
Why Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals chose Old Bend
We have always loved bungalows and cottages and when we found Riverside we knew it was a perfect fit. We set it up for our family of 6 to enjoy the amazing splendor of central Oregon. We feel privileged to make it available to you and your friends and family, and look forward to welcoming you as our guest at Riverside Cottage.
What makes this House unique
The Riverside has all the charm of an Old Town Bend cottage with the added benefit of a lower level family entertainment room that gives a larger family or group of friends a chance to spread out and not feel crowded. Our favorite benefit of the Riverside Cottage is its location. We love coming to Bend and walking everywhere! The cottage is literally just across the street from Drake Park, and just a short walk to Downtown Bend through the charming Old Town Neighborhood. We also love being so close to the river, and the bike and walking paths to the Old Mill.

We had 2 families with 2 boys. They slept down in the basement with the WII and Fooseball. Adults slept up. Perfect! House has been totally redone and is so comfortable and really spacious for our group. Walking distance to downtown and the Old Mill District. Would definitely stay here again, but for a longer time!
Overpriced and under cleaned
This property has potential but at a high cost, it was very disappointing. The place was not very clean with cobwebs in the bedroom and a serious accumulation of dust under the sofa in the living room. The kitchen was barely equipped adequately and there was a half used pack of coffee indicating the lack of attention to detail from the renter/cleaners. The cleaning fee is a joke.The basement beds were substandard. The back yard was so small that the hot tub was cramped in a corner right next to the fence on two sides.
The location of the cottage is good, close to downtown Bend but the house itself could be a lot nicer and cleaner.
Overall we felt cheated by the cost of this house, especially with the lack of attention to detail.
Cute place. Great location.
This house worked great for our family of six. It is in a great location for exploring Bend and the surrounding area.
Great location, perfect for our multi-age group.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cottage, especially the proximity to downtown, food truck court, Drake Park and the bike/walking path. The house itself is furnished in a comfortable "homey" manner, making it easy for us to enjoy our time together sharing a meal and downtime in the hot tub. Would definitely recommend.
We've stayed at this house for 4 years in a row now and we are heading back again next year. This place is so close to everything, once you arrive, you don't need to drive anywhere (except for golf courses but then you can take Uber as many drivers are nearby this house all the time). Highly recommended except for those days that we are booking.
Close to everything, we walked everywhere! We went to great restaurants, concerts, shopping and floated the river. The house was cute and clean and a great place to hang out after a day in Bend. Super fun weekend getaway!
