Great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the Westside Cottage very much it works well for 3 to four people. We were Mt. biking and were able to keep our bikes safe with plenty of room. The hot tub was perfect after our rides and very private. The location was within walking distance of the market and many restaurants and breweries. Our favorite restaurant fine dining Zydeco in downtown Bend it was superb also close by was 10 Barrel brewery right on the corner. We had breakfast at Chows which was across from the Market they had a few items that you would not see anywhere else. Barrio was good for Mexican in downtown Bend as well as Parrilla which was at the roundabout. It was a walk in and order with great food as well as beer and Margaritas. We also loved Drakes. We had no bad meals I think those restaurants don't last long. We came from Alaska and had a early flight and Erin gave us a call when the cottage was cleaned and we were able to get in a little early. This made our day after our long flight and drive from Portland. We really appreciated the extra effort. Thanks so much Erin. Nice and clean and we had everything we needed.

Location I perfect; home clean

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful location on the west side with walking distance to just about any type of eatery, bar, park, shopping, etc.... . The property is completely fenced and makes a great destination for anyone traveling with dogs. Neighborhood feels very safe and comfortable for walking, however sidewalks on some side streets are not present. Interior is clean and adequately furnished with 2BR and 2BA. The kitchen seemed to be stocked with anything One would need including dishes, cookware and essential seasoning, bags, paper towels, etc..., however we did not cook while we visited- so many great eateries just steps away.

Owners were attentive to questions and pleasant to work with. All the “rules” for cleaning up when you leave seem very consistent with other rentals we have used in the USA and throughout Europe. Not sure why prior posts list this as a concern. Regardless, if you are on a time crunch, they will gladly clean up after you for an added fee- how easy!

We will definitely return to this property and or one of the other 18 (approx) other properties run by this family-owned group. We love Bend and the different options to visit, the vast activities and of course, the people.

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review of our property! Thank you for taking the time to leave it, and for being our guests during your Bend visit. I have been operating vacation homes here in Bend for 12 years and it never gets old hearing our guests talk about the wonderful time they had while staying in our vacation home. We try to provide all the amenities and little touches that we'd want when traveling ourselves. We love this place and we love sharing it! Thank you for staying with us.

Perfect place to stay in downtown Bend

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place to stay in downtown Bend. Walking distance to Newport Market, Victorian Cafe, 10 Barrel and lots of other shops and restaurants.

Comfortable amenities for up to two couples, well appointed kitchen and bathrooms.

The hot tub in back was very enjoyable, particularly because it snowed while we were there.

Owner's Response: There is nothing more beautiful than an evening hot tub soak in the snowy Bend winter! I am so glad you were able to enjoy it, and all the other wonderful things to do here in our town right outside your front door. The location of this house is one of my favorites! Thanks for visiting.

Great house close to everything

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Bend at the Westside cottage. The house itself is small with limited gathering space for a group but perfect for 2-4 people. The yard was nice with room for our dogs to run and play and both front and backyard are fenced. The hot tub was great! The kitchen has all the essentials for cooking and making coffee though we mostly ate out to enjoy all the great restaurants in Bend!

The house is a block away from a few restaurants and breweries and a close walk to Drake park and all of downtown.

Just make sure you read the binder with the information on checkout. Most of it was emailed to me and I reviewed all of that but didn't check the binder until we were close to leaving and they want you to have dishwasher run and done by checkout time and sheets and towels washed and dried by checkout or they will charge extra for additional housekeeping. Not a huge deal but something that should be explicit in the email communication as it is not the standard at rental houses.

Overall we had a great time in Bend and would recommend the westside cottage!

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a friend for a few days of mountain biking and golf in early August of 2017. Very happy with it. For the time of year, it was important to have air conditioning and the AC in the house did not disappoint. It was very nice to walk into a comfortably cool room after a day of mountain biking or golf. The house was very clean and obviously well maintained. The driveway is very big and could easily accommodate four vehicles, if needed. This is important because the on-street parking is quite limited. The location is great as there are several great dining options within easy walking distance, hence the on-street parking challenge. We did not use the hot tub or BBQ, but they looked to be either relatively new and/or high quality. The kitchen/dining layout is odd, but very functional and well equipped. The master bath is large and has a large walk-in closet. The second bath is small, but the showers in both bathrooms had good water pressure and nice shower heads. The only potential negative about this place is that there is no place for more than a couple people to sit at the same table for a meal, except on the patio. The indoor dining area is quite small and not adjacent to the kitchen. We ate most of our meals out, so this was not an issue for us, but worth noting for others. Would certainly stay here again.
