About the property

Experience Bend’s vibrant, local community with Bluebird Day!

The Jefferson Cottage is a charming, fully renovated, 1 bedroom cottage tucked into a quaint and quiet neighborhood in Bend's popular Old Town District, in the heart of all the best that Bend has to offer.

The location of the Jefferson Cottage is exceptional! Just up the street from the river and Miller's Landing Park, you are in walking distance to all the popular shops, restaurants, and pubs in downtown and in the Old Mill District. Hop on one of the 2 cruiser bikes provided and explore Bend like a local!

You will find so much to enjoy in this charming cottage! Unwind on the front porch, or get comfy in the bright and sunny living room. There is a gas fireplace in the dining room, and sit-down dining for 4.

Newly renovated, this cottage has gorgeous restored pinewood floors, granite countertops, fresh new paint, colorful decor, and lots of windows with plenty of natural sunlight bringing cheer to beautiful bluebird days in Bend.

Prepare a home-cooked meal in the fully equipped gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and newer appliances including a dishwasher, microwave, and gas range. Or, relax and cook out on the gas grill on the back deck.

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. There is a Mount Bachelor Shuttle just up the street that will take you to and from the mountain.

All Bluebird Day homes are lovingly cared for with the intention of offering you a world class authentic Bend vacation experience. Locally owned and operated, we provide you with a unique opportunity to experience the magic of Bend like a local.

About Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals

We moved to Bend 15 years ago to raise our daughters, and fell in love with its abundant natural beauty, friendly, welcoming community, and simple lifestyle. Work has taken us to Portland where we currently spend most of our time, but we miss the fresh air and the sun soaked days of Central Oregon and come back to Bend whenever we can. Our family loves to bike and ski together, and on evenings when we stay in, we are can be found playing ukeleles and cooking fresh pasta or sushi.

Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 2013

Why Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals chose Old Bend

After we sold our family home, before we found this cottage, we rented homes through Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals. Their customer service and attention to comfort and detail is truly one of the best we had ever experienced on vacation. Having been Bend residents for 13 years, we really appreciated their philosophy of helping guests experience Bend like the natives do! They are absolutely the best choice to work with, and share our commitment to making our guests feel welcome and at home.

What makes this house unique

We feel so lucky to have found the Jefferson Cottage. It is spacious for a one bedroom, and we have recently renovated it with new granite countertops, restored hardwood floors, quality lighting, a spacious deck and more. There is a cozy gas stove to keep you warm in the winter, and a fully outfitted kitchen if you want to cook in. The location is also amazing. From here, we are steps away from delicious restaurants, great breweries, Mirror Pond, the Old Mill District, and the music, art and festivals of downtown. We leave our car in the driveway and walk or bike everywhere. The ease with which one can get to the mountain to ski, to one of the many trails to hike or bike, to the river to float, paddle board, swim or fish, or to a park to just sit and listen to the breeze in the pine trees is unparalleled. Really, the list of opportunities right outside our front door is amazing!

Perfect location and perfectly appointed

  • 5 of 5

2 friends stayed for 3 days. Loved being able to walk everywhere and relax on the deck. The only possible improvement would be a more comfortable pull out bed....otherwise spot on!!

Perfect location and excellent house

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay than at the Jefferson Cottage. Excellent location where we walked everywhere we needed to go. A perfect abode for the two of us. Found everything we needed in the kitchen and the fireplace worked great to heat the house while the snow fell. Would recommend this place to family, friends, and others. Staff was prompt to make sure we were having a great stay (which was a show of their excellent customer service).

Perfect Location and Lovely Cottage

  • 4 of 5

It was a perfect place for us. Close to downtown, tastefully decorated, comfortable and homey. I loved the bed, my wife didn't and ended up on couch….bed was on the soft side, I guess (not too soft)….felt like heaven to me.
