Great Place to Stay! by Carrie 08/06/2017
Our family had a great stay at this House! Very spacious for our family of 4 plus Grandma! Great location too. We were able to walk to the amphitheater for the Jack Johnson concert. Very clean and comfortable!
Brought Our Kayaks and Loved the Easy Access to the Deschutes river by Tami 07/29/2017
This beautiful home was comfortable, cozy, very clean and had everything we needed for our stay with plenty of room for our family. The neighborhood is not only quiet and family friendly, but lots of restaurants, pubs and nightlife within walking distance. We brought our Kayaks and loved the easy access to the Deschutes river. Thank you for sharing your home with us
Attention to Detail by Janice 06/18/2017
I was amazed at the attention to detail, everything was at your fingertips. The lock system was great because keeping track of keys and the fear of locking yourself out were taken care of.
Will Be Back by The Seagos 06/11/2017
Thanks for a great stay. Beds are SO comfortable and loved being on the river. We will be back.
Great Location On The River by Randolph 06/05/2017
My wife and I explored all of Bend and the surrounding area, but one requirement was that our rental be located on the riverfront near town. River Bend Cottage has a great back yard with comfortable seating on the river. Enjoy your coffee or tea, read the paper or that summer novel and enjoy the ducks and rafters in the water. House is well laid out and all necessities are provided, towels, shampoo, full kitchen supplies etc. Make a stop at the nearby market for coffee and breakfast fixings or an occasional dinner or lunch at home. Location is an easy walk to town over the bridge on Galveston, past Drake Park (also a good view walk). Go to the left out the front door and you can actually walk to the Old Mill District, just stay close to the river walks. High Desert Museum is a real quality facility, check Tower Theatre for music and Elks Baseball is fun for an evening game. Some Deschutes campgrounds are not open until snow melts in early summer, but Tumalo Falls has good views and several hikes. Craft beers all over the place and Pilot Butte Drive In serves the best hamburger ever...ever.
Scenic Hot Tub by Reid 02/03/2017
Diana & Chris & Marta's place is fantastic. From the beautiful view of the river, to the scenic hot tub, to the spacious living quarters. It had everything my family and I needed for our stay in Bend and all our outdoor activities. The location was ideal too. Just a short walk away from loads of great eateries, breweries and downtown activities. Additionally, check in/out was seamless and communication was clear and helpful. I highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to Bend!
Excellent Location, Well Equipped Kitchen and Fine Accommodations by Mike G 01/18/2017
Very close to town and to brew pubs, just a short walk out the front door. Quiet neighborhood, easy access to Mt. Bachelor. House was comfortable for two couples, a hot tub that actually worked well was a bonus. Seems like they are always too cold. I would stay here again.
Just Off of Galveston Avenue the New Hip Spot For Drinks, Food, Music, and Art by Randy 12/04/2016
Great stay at an excellent location in a very comfortable bungalow ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Stayed for nine nights in this two bedroom bungalow by the river. Excellent location near downtown Bend just off of Galveston Avenue (the new hip spot for drinks, food, music, and art). Easy walk to either 10 Barrel or Sunriver Brewing Pubs. A nice deck overlooking the river with a good size hot tub just out the door. Really appreciated the garage (as well as owner having the driveway shoveled) as it snow pretty much every day of the stay. The owners stayed in contact and were readily available to help with any questions. This is my seventh stay in Bend while skiing, and have always found nice condo's with affordable prices. This was the best of the places I have stayed due to the location and the ease of use.
Can't Recommend Enough by Robbie 12/01/2016
We had a fantastic stay for our first ever trip to Bend. The home is ideally located, with an amazing backyard featuring a hot tub and serene view of the river. The hosts were very accommodating and kept in touch with us to make sure our stay was perfect. Can't recommend enough.

Rode Our Bikes Everywhere by Todd 08/20/2016
One word.... Location!.... Just is close to everything.... Rode our bikes everywhere and returned to enjoy the river..... Location and river make up for some minor decor shortfalls.... But all in all - would recommend for sure!
Bendiful,Beautiful! by Patti & Bob 05/02/2016
Couldn't ask for a better place to stay. From the location to accommodations to the attentive owners, it was a delight to stay in this very comfortable house. Everything needed was there, right down to the sandals for trips to the hot tub. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Downtown for the marathon, great restaurants (Hola! to name one) Found the food truck area and had a great time mingling with everyone. The river was beautiful. All amenities were top notch. Thanks for checking in on us, makes us feel like family. We hope to come back soon for a longer stay. Patti

Beautiful, Clean, Turn-Key by Julie L. 03/26/2016
Beautiful, clean, turn-key home in an idyllic river side setting...great walk ability factor. No surprises; this listing was as described. The only thing is that the pictures don't do this place justice. A perfect rental for our needs.
Hot Tub Overlooking the River by Dana W. 03/19/2016
Perfect little house right on the river, and within walking distance of all the great spots in Bend! We enjoyed everything about our stay here. Great location, house was clean, well-stocked kitchen and towels, lots of nice little touches. Hot tub overlooking the river is fabulous. And pet-friendly! I wouldn't change a thing!
Hui Hou! by The Chelini's 03/15/2016
Two weeks of family & friends experiencing all the great things Bend has to offer. Feeling blessed! Hui Hou! Mahalo Stone's Throw Team for providing such a comfortable bungalow! See you in July!
This well furnished and modern house was a great base camp for the activities of Bend. by The Motley Crue 02/26/2016
This well furnished and modern house was a great base camp for the activities of Bend. Being so close to the Pubs and Breweries was exquisite!! We cannot wait to return and try it explore the rest if this town.
My husband and I had a great time here! by Angie & Will Boise, ID 02/13/2016
My husband and I had a great time here! We walked to different breweries every day and completed the Ale Trail. Two days of snowboarding (or ...one day of
"Ice boarding and one day of powder), we really enjoyed soaking in the hot tub when we got home. We've loved our time here and will definitely be back!
What a wonderful place to stay on our first trip to Bend! by The Euhus family 01/22/2016
What a wonderful place to stay on our first trip to Bend! Your house was a great launch pad for four days of skiing. Also, the proximity to 10 Barrel was well received. Many thanks!
