My husband and I stayed in Bend after I ran the half marathon in McMinnville. This cottage is perfectly located a short walking distance to town. Don was very responsive and was the perfect host. When asked on our first morning there where the closest place was for me to buy milk for coffee he texted back to say look out your back door and he left us milk. The cottage was immaculate and clean, has very nice updated features and has a cozy back patio with views of deer time to time. I would highly recommend you stay at this spot. Don would check In with us on a regular basis via text to ensure we had all we needed. We for sure will be back. My husband and I had a perfect time. Try out Wild Rose for awesome AWESOME thai food. We hiked, biked, kayaked and of course did beer sampling.
This Cottage stay was simply amazing. Don was an incredible host and takes pride in providing a 5 star experience... I would give it 6/5. He's thought of every way to be hospitable and make your stay as good as can be. The cottage was quaint, private, remodeled, clean and comfortable. It felt like we were the first people to ever stay there... meticulously maintained! It felt like we were living in a Pottery Barn magazine. The location was perfect. We walked downtown every night and easily found lots to do in Bend. It was sad to leave The Cottage, but we'll be back :)
As usual, the Second Street Cottage is the gold standard by which all other places we rent are judged. We travel quite a bit and it's the little details (like sharp knives!) that make all the difference.
Cute cottage, great location. Easy to walk downtown. Lots of places to eat within easy walking distance.
This house is located about 2 blocks from downtown Bend, park and walk is what we did and this place should get 6 stars along with the owners. Would book again in a heart beat.
We just stayed 3 nights at the cottage and loved it! Don has thought of everything you could possibly need! We wish could have stayed longer. We were within walking distance to lots of great restaurants and all of Dons recommendations were amazing! The cottage is fully stocked with all sorts of convenient items...even a park pass! We will definitely be back!
First, this cottage is immaculate- clean, efficient and everything is in top working order. It is well maintained and the pride of our hosts shines through. The setting is just beautiful in a park-like setting in our hosts' large backyard. Second, the cottage has an outdoor patio which opens to a beautifully landscaped garden. We enjoyed coffee there each morning. Often deer and other wildlife would wander into the garden which was very interesting. Third, the cottage is located within an easy walk from downtown Bend. My wife and I walked to local shopping and restaurants several times during our recent 10-day stay.
Our hosts were very responsive to us - they provided a National Parks Pass which enabled us to visit the nearby parks at no cost. This is normally a $10/day fee. Also, our hosts were available,yet respected our privacy.
This is our second visit to the cottage and we intend to return- this is a perfect accommodation in a beautiful section of a beautiful town!
