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

Nice all around. Great experience.

  • 5 of 5

This is in a great location to walk or bike downtown and to the river and parks. You can walk in just a few minutes to breakfast and to the grocery store and to restaurants. Deer walk down the street in the morning. Very quiet area. People very friendly. The cottage is in 5 star condition. The owner, Rita, is great and very helpful. Couldn't ask for more. Deposit was returned promptly. Would DEFINITLY stay there again.

Charming clean cottage close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was even nicer than pictures do justice. Well updated and cozy just a block away from a great local market, coffee, and more. Short walk, bike ride, or drive to old downtown, this was the perfect accommodation for our family. Owners are responsive and kind. Highly recommend and will be back.

Great location for a quick getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend of the Bend Beer Chase relay. The house was a perfect location near a great neighborhood market, close to a few wonderful restaurants, and close driving proximity to the race events. The house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay away from home.

Best vacation stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the vacation rental, its an absolutely beautiful house and very updated and well maintained. We've traveled all over the country and this was the nicest stay we've had yet. Every detail from decor to furnishings was obviously meticulously chosen and cared for. We felt right at home, the location can't be beat, we walked everywhere and enjoyed the Bend sunshine.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days of R&R in Bend before Christmas this year. We loved the location of our bungalow, close to coffee shops, Newport Market for groceries, and an easy walk to downtown across the pedestrian bridge. Parking was easy, and the mud room was great for all our winter gear after hikes. There was coffee and tea which was very nice for our first morning. No more than a 20 minute drive to Tumalo Falls and many other great hikes and trail runs. Most importantly, we were so grateful it was dog-friendly and our pup loved it. Thanks!
