About the property

New 2 bedroom cottage on the sweetest street in Bend

This cottage was completed May 25th, 2015 and offers all ammenities of home. We have had this property since 1989, so know this area well. This is in the heart of the West side on a nice, quiet street with plenty of parking, one block north of Newport Avenue. This is located a few blocks from historic Drake Park via footbridge over the Deschutes River, or maybe stop for the kids at Boat Park.

We have provided a well equiped kitchen with gas stove (check out photo) and everything you need, including coffee maker, microwave, toaster, dishwasher and icemaker/water in fridge door. Dining table seats four. Washer and dryer to keep you clean & comfy. TV and cable, internet and wrapping porch with grill. Two new queen beds with 300+ thread count and hardwood floors.

Pet friendly, but this is not a fenced yard.

Short walk to Newport Market and Devore's market. Within a block to restaurants such as Backporch Coffee, Nancy P's, Spork, Kebaba's, Chow, New York Subs or Cuppa Yo frozen yogurt. Pubs are everywhere in Bend, especially on the Westside. First Friday artworks are a must-do.

Bikes are provided, even two 20" frames for the kids to extend the distance without a car.

Summertime Munch-n-Music and Les Schwab Sunday Summer provides free concerts and movies at Drake Park and downtown Bend has something happening nearly every weekend. And don't forget the Farmer's Markets and weekdays and weekends. Raft down the Deschutes River or paddle board. And don't forget those golf clubs. Winter brings ski vacations and holiday parades.

We want to do everything we can to provide the best vacation in Central Oregon.

About Rita and Tom Pedersen

We moved to Bend Labor Day, 1989 to this property and started our family here, so it is a very special place for us. As Bend has grown, Tom has built right along with it and now we want to share our town with others. This is a an every-season place to live and be active, or sit back and enjoy the scenery.

We share our lives with dogs, so we appreciate traveling with them.

We are still in love with Central Oregon.

Rita and Tom Pedersen purchased this house in 2015

Why Rita and Tom Pedersen chose River West

Great house and perfect location for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t be more pleased about our week stay at the Ogden cottage. The house is very clean and located in a safe, quiet neighborhood within walking or biking distance of downtown Bend, as well as nearby restaurants and grocery stores. The location is perfect. We enjoyed our use of the bikes and the outdoor patio. Rita and Tom were fantastic and made us feel very welcome and at home. In addition, they offered wonderful suggestions in making our Bend experience the best trip possible and were very responsive to our questions. They were a pleasure to work with and we were very satisfied of our stay at the Ogden cottage.

central to all of the area has to offer

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at the Ogden house and there is a reason why we choose this place again. Walking distance to a nice super market and restaurants. We were able to bike everywhere and also hit the trails for some hiking, running and climbing. This small yet cozy home was a perfect place to come back to every night after a day of adventure.
