About the property

Great Single Story Cottage On Bend's Popular West Side

This warm and welcoming cottage is truly a vacationer’s delight, designed to enhance your full-Bend experience. The Sunrise was fully renovated in 2017 with the intent of keeping the old-Bend charm intact, while offering modern amenities for your comfort. She’s a charmer!

The newly re-designed living area is open and light and allows you to visit while preparing meals in the “top to bottom” brand new kitchen. Plenty of work space here to prepare those local favorites or to marinate that salmon for grilling on the outdoor gas BBQ. The Sunrise Cottage is uniquely nestled on a private and treed lot with an enticing (fully fenced) backyard --- quiet and private for a relaxing dinner on the deck, reading in the gazebo, or soaking in the private HOT TUB under the Bend starry skies.

Time for a good night’s rest? The first bedroom has a delightful pillow-top KING bed for the best night’s sleep ever. We provided a desk in this room just in case you have to work while on the road. There is secure high-speed internet throughout the home, but it is way more fun to use it to locate that perfect-treasure-of-a-spot to visit while in Bend. The second bedroom is set-up with a comfy pillow-top QUEEN bed, making this cottage “just right” for two to four guests. There is one good-sized modern bathroom with walk-in shower and nice counter space. We also provide high efficiency washer and dryer to keep your play-clothes clean.

This Sunrise Cottage is located on Bend’s popular Westside within strolling distance of wonderful local favorites like 10 Barrel Brewing Company, Ariana’s, The Food Cart Court, and other fine dining and shops. Don’t miss the amazing Eggs Benedict and designer Bloody Mary’s at The Victorian Café (nicknamed The Vic by us locals) on the corner right across the street from the house. It is a great way to start that FUN Bend day! You can easily walk to the historic downtown, festivals, art shows, or to convenient outdoor recreational rentals… Or you can hop onto the TWO bikes we provide during the warmer summer months and peddle around. Stroll just five blocks and you are standing on the banks of the Deschutes River in iconic Drake Park. This walkable location makes it easy to put your inner tube in the Deschutes at The Old Mill and float the river right into Drake Park, with a short stroll home to the cottage.

The Sunrise is finished in a fun ski lodge motif, and has been lovingly designed with attention to detail. We personally strive to make your Bend experience a truly memorable one. Come be our guests and experience OUR Sunrise Bend!

About Lisa McDonald

HI----my name is Lisa and I have been a Bendite for over 40 years, and am very proud to have watched her grow from a very small town to a very small city. Always unique. I live on a 20 acre ranch and grow hay, raise chickens, and garden-up wonderful vegetables. I run my cottages like I run my life. Great attention to detail and personal attention to my guests----I believe every Bend vacation at the cottages should be a great one, if I do my job right. If you call you'll actually talk to me! Looking forward to it----

Lisa McDonald purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Lisa McDonald chose River West

We love the location of this property, close to all the wonderful west side attractions. It makes it a perfect land place for our guests to truly discover Bend.

What makes this cottage unique

My favorite feature of this house is the beautiful backyard. It is your own private little oasis in the city with ample space that is fully fenced with a gazebo, sitting areas, gas BBQ, deck with outdoor dining table, and of course the private hot tub. The green grass, beautiful old growth trees, and lovely gardens provide the perfect area to relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved this "home-away-from-home" and it's comfort and decor. We're spoiled now and it will be our first choice from now on when we visit Bend. We enjoyed the beautiful 5 days of sunshine at The Sunrise Cottage, and the hot tub to relax in after mountain biking. We look forward to our next visit!

Thank you Lisa for making it so easy and relaxing---

Perfect home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing home. It is in a great location. It is a ten minute drive to downtown, walkable to Drake Park and nearby Breweries. The backyard is the best part though.

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage! The location was excellent, in a neighborhood with lots of restaurants and breweries, but away from the downtown traffic. We could walk to downtown Bend in about 20 minutes. The house itself was spotless and stylish, and very well maintained. The kitchen has been recently updated. The back yard was a wonderful little oasis in Bend, and we ended up eating many of our meals there. Highly recommended!

Absolutely wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

From opening communications to arrival, our 5 night stay, to leaving and follow up email and return of damage deposit the whole experience was smooth and trouble free. The pre-arrival information was complete and everything in the cottage was as described, and again - without issue or problems.

Furnishings are top line, the A/C worked well in the near 100F days and was a welcome relief to come home to after a day of touristing.

Can't recommend highly enough - the location is walking distance to pubs, restaurants, bakeries and even the downtown core with all that offers.

Cute and Comfy Sunrise Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Sunrise Cottage in Bend, Oregon. The location was great for our day trips. The house was newly remodeled with nice decor. We loved the backyard, so much so that instead of having dinner out at nearby restaurants, we barbecued and ate on the back deck each night. We also liked relaxing in the hot tub after our hikes. It was the perfect place for our get away.

Your house is AWESOME!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Sunrise Cottage exceeded ALL of our expectations. We were lucky enough to sneak our family in for one night and we got to experience their BRAND NEW renovation. I really just had to write! The cottage is SO nicely done. The brand new interior design and one-of-a-kind touches make it really stand out. Its that perfect blend of old charm and yet new/modern feel. Can you come do my house please??

We are already planning a return visit for a week this summer, so we can really enjoy everything that Bend and this cottage have to offer. Don’t wait----book her now! I'm super afraid as soon as it's ‘discovered’ I wont be able to get in! The Sunrise is the perfect cottage.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts! We worked really hard at making this full renovation happen. As owner/operators we pour a great deal of personal time into our homes so our guests have a memorable Bend experience. We love the fact that locals can also enjoy the fruits of our labor----"stay-cations" in Bend are a great way to enjoy all the goodies that vacationers experience, that we may never get to do when we live and work here daily. I'm really looking forward to hosting your family for that week this summer too----the big, private yard is a green and cool summer oasis where you can relax and enjoy being outside. The teak dining table, big gas BBQ, the 'always-cooking' hot tub, and two nice bikes let you dig into enjoying the trendy Westside and beautiful summer days. . See you then!! Thanks for sharing---
