Just steps from Drake Park, Newport Avenue, Galveston Avenue, and Downtown Bend, the Penny Luck Cottage, with charm and character, is a 1 bedroom 1 bath classic Bend cottage built in 1938 during Bend's mill town heyday. This home is completely updated with all the modern amenities, including new paint and carpet, and a fully renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

The fabulous location on Bend`s popular Westside make this home the perfect choice for a relaxing and authentic Bend vacation experience. The Penny Luck Cottage is just 3 blocks from Drake Park, 1 block from to Newport Market, Backporch Coffee Roasters, Spork and Chow and just 6 blocks from all the action on Galveston Avenue and 10 Barrel Brewing Company, the hub of the Bend Ale Trail.

Experience the true down-to-earth Bend lifestyle by taking one of the provided cruiser bikes for a spin around town. You are a 5 minute bike ride to the heart of downtown, crossing a charming wooden bridge across the Deschutes River, and meandering through Drake Park. Enjoy a short stroll to great restaurants, pubs, shops and coffee, all just a few blocks away!

After a day of adventure, come “home” and relax of the comfy couch with a book by the fire place, or play games with family and friends. Head up the one-of-a-kind spiral staircase to the loft and watch a movie on the HDTV. Enjoy the DVD library, free wireless internet, and cable channels. The couch folds out into a queen-sized bed with bedding provided for extra guests.

Prepare an unforgettable meal in the fully equipped gourmet kitchen, there is sit down dining for 4. Or, cook outside on the gas grill. Enjoy your evenings on the patio with friends and relax around the propane fire-pit under a desert sky filled with stars-- Bend style!

If you prefer to get out of town and into nature, there are endless hiking and mountain bike trails just minutes from town. The spectacular Cascade Mountains and many lakes are and easy 20 minute drive providing endless opportunities for outdoor adventures. Phil’s mountain bike trails are an easy 6 miles to the West, as well as many walking and hiking trails along the Deschutes River right out your front door!

Oh yes, and did we mention world class skiing? Mount Bachelor Ski Resort is an easy 25 minute drive from Bend. This mountain is a blast, with a wide variety of terrain and trails that will keep you blissfully enthralled.

About Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals

Our family of 3 lives in beautiful Alaska but we need to get down to the lower 48 for some extra sunshine every now and then. We love to mountain bike, trail run, hike, climb, telemark, and cross country ski which makes Bend a perfect location for us.

Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 2013

Why Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals chose River West

We each found Bend almost 20 years ago and have been drawn back to this fabulous, friendly town several times in the past few years. The high desert with it's warm sunshine and cool nights provides an ideal climate to enjoy all the outdoor activities we love and the mild winters make being in town easy with Mt. Bachelor and it's great snow just a short drive away. Bend also caters to the palate with so many amazing breweries and tasty restaurants. And we love that we get to walk or ride home after instead of getting in the car!

The Penny Luck name came from a penny we found as we talking about some unexpected difficulties while buying the house and not sure if it would happen. We were amazed that it was 1938, the year the house was built, and took it as a sign. To our delight and amazement, all the pieces did fall into place and the cottage was ours. A true sign of faith for us. The penny is now shined up and standing proud on a shelf in the house!

What makes this house unique

Penny Luck Cottage drew us in as soon as we saw it. It has the character of the neighborhood and history of Bend while now providing modern amenities and comfort. The location is perfect with such easy access to Downtown, Westside, and Old Mill without having to drive. This is a big plus for us! The cottage is calm and comfortable, perfect for relaxing and truly feeling like vacation. One of our favorite parts of the cottage is the patio. With a nice grill to cook out on and propane fire pit to sit around on a cool evening and enjoy the stars. We love our dog but this house is not set for one as we have no grass area, only nice xeroscaping. On the other hand being without pets it makes it better for those with allergies. We hope those bringing their furry friends will find another nice place.

Since we are not able to live in Bend right now we have the benefit of the boutique property management of Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals which makes your stay easy. The house is clean, has high quality linens and beds, and kitchen has all the basics you need with a few things more. Bluebird Day are attentive to your needs, can assist with almost any services or reservations, and will address any unexpected problems with quick response. We are pleased to have them manage Penny Luck and are sure they will make your stay a good one.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A perfect sunny Easter Sunday in Bend. We LOVE the Penny Luck Cottage! From the location to the fully stocked kitchen to the pleasant back yard, it was just the right spot for our family of 4. The boys enjoyed their loft space and walking down the block to rent a movie at the red box. The owners seemed to think of everything-- there is even a milk frother! Can't wait to come back!

Cute little cottage in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This place was just right for what we were looking for in Bend. Close walking/biking distance to most of the delicious and fun places around town. All things provided in the home were great quality. The patio area is beautiful and having the bikes handy was a major plus! If any complaint, the shower water pressure wasn't the greatest, but it was still functional.

Overall, we loved this place and would go back in a heartbeat! :)

The right size and the right location

  • 5 of 5

Wow, did we luck out with Penny Luck! It was the perfect little cabin for my wife and I for our first visit to Bend. It was well appointed and we lacked nothing, even down to the bikes for exploring and laundry soap for the washing machine.

I loved how this old cabin was renovated with all the modern conveniences but still kept some of the old charm, like the bead board on the walls and ceilings. And relaxing in the cool evenings in the back patio was fantastic.

Best of all, Penny Luck is in the most awesome Westside location. A short walk or bike ride across the pedestrian bridge took us to Drake Park and Downtown. And Penny Luck is literally one block from some great restaurants like Spork and Backporch Coffee. However, we ate several take-home meals from Newport Market, also just one block away. What a fantastic market! Great sushi, hot entrees, desserts, and even Ocean Rolls from Sparrow Bakery. Several other great places were just a short bike ride away. We couldn't have asked for a better hometown neighborhood location in Bend.

I did contact Bluebird about one minor issue with the loft air conditioner (it was displaying an error code). They were quick to respond with the solution and offered to come out to resolve it if I couldn't. No need, it was a simple fix (the condensation tray was full and needed to be emptied). In any case, kudos to the staff for their responsiveness.

If you're looking for a small cabin for just the two of you, or a child or two, and you want a quiet but walkable and centrally located home with hip eateries nearby, look no further than Penny Luck.
