Great little space! So close to everything that is quintessential Bend by Kimmery 12/15/2017
“Great little space! So close to everything that is quintessential Bend. I didn’t read closely and didn’t realize the unit didn’t have a washer/dryer so I didn’t plan clothing well but that was completely my fault for not reading thoroughly. The kitchen was perfectly appointed and I loved the hot chocolate on the cold winter nights! Would totally stay here again!”
Wonderful Space by Chase 12/08/2017
Thank you for such a wonderful space close to downtown. Thank you more so for letting out furry friends come along.
Cozy, comfortable, great location and well managed by David 12/01/2017
Perfect spot for two with a pet or two. Convenient fenced yard, it’s own tiny home with all the amenities!
Great little house! by Loren, Kristin & Indy 11/25/2017
We walked to dinner every night and our pup loved the yard. Thank you!
Loved the Little Lava Cottage! by Andrea, David, Spaiki, and Thor 11/22/2017
So warm and cozy and a perfect retreat from a house filled Thanksgiving with dear friends.
This place could not be any more perfect! by Monica 11/21/2017
This place could not be any more perfect! It has a super location with short walks to downtown and easy off-street parking. The cottage itself was well-thought out, well stocked with quality amenities, spotlessly clean, and super comfortable and cozy! We really loved our stay and visit to Bend and highly recommend this cottage!
Perfect Cozy Cottage by Karen and Monica 11/19/2017
We had a fabulous time in this perfect cozy cottage! It all was beautiful and thoughtfully stocked with everything we needed and more. We enjoyed walks to Stihl Whiskey Bar and Deschutes Brewery and a dar at the absolutely gorgeous Smith Rock State Park. We'll recommend this place to everyone!

Quaint Place by Barbara and James 10/16/2017
Thank you so much for providing this beautiful, quaint place to stay. This has been our favorite Airbnb we've ever seen. It's so cute that I would genuinely live here! We will be back to Bend and we would love to stay here again. The bed is amazing!
Terrific Little Cottage! by Josh and Amanda 10/04/2017
What a terrific little cottage! We had so much fun staying here and being so close to everything. The bed is so comfortable, the kitchen was perfectly stocked and there are some super nice toiletries! Thanks for creating a comfortable home away from home.
Quaint Place to Stay by Barbara & James 09/23/2017
Thank you so much for providing this beautiful, quaint place to stay. This has been out favorite vacation rental we've ever seen. It's so cute that I would actually live here! We will be back to Bend & we would love to stay here again. The bed is amazing!
Fantastic by Mike 09/20/2017
Had a fantastic birthday weekend & first visit to Bend. The Little Lava cottage was perfect! Thank you!
Perfect location, cute little cottage by Cara 09/16/2017
Very clean and management has thought of lots of extra little details that were nice touches. We did not cook but the kitchen had everything you needed and was very well stocked. The bed is large and comfortable. The location is fantastic, you can walk most places but the bikes are useful (though getting a little old) we did not use our car all weekend. Thank you for a great stay, we would come again and would highly recommend the cottage to friends and family.
Great Little Cottage In An Unbelievable Location by Tracy 09/07/2017
Great little cottage in an unbelievable location. Perfect for a few days, walking distance to everywhere down town. Clean and well stocked. Very quiet neighborhood.
The Best Place to Stay in Bend by Vavara 08/29/2017
The best place to stay at in Bend. We will definitely be back to this cute and cozy place. It had everything we wanted and more. The only that I am disappointed in is that we could not stay much longer!
Great Location by Shelby 08/27/2017
Great cottage in a great location. We really wanted to feel like we were locals and the little lava cottage accomplished that. We loved that we were a 5 minute bike ride from almost everything. We will definitely be back.
Would Stay Again in a Heartbeat by Margot 08/27/2017
This is truly a great little pad super close to all of the action yet quiet and peaceful. We didn't get a chance to use the bikes because we were walking everywhere. The house is very small but well laid out and super comfortable for a short stay or longer one. One thing to note: it does get pretty bright in the morning as the window coverings are very lightweight. You definitely need an eye mask if you're sensitive to that sort of thing (I am). I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Highly Recommend! by Karen 07/23/2017
This is a great place for two people to stay in bend. We walked everywhere and even enjoyed the front porch. This was a great place to "come home" to after spending the day out and about. Highly recommended!
Quiet and Comfortable by Kelly 07/23/2017
A great little cabin perfect for two. Loved the location! Close to downtown Bend yet quiet and comfortable!
Well-Equipped Little Cottage by Dhruv 06/29/2017
Awesome, well-equipped little cottage walking distance (5-20 minutes) from plenty of bars and restaurants. Loved our stay here for a couple nights!
Just Right Size by Alicia 06/27/2017
Good location! Just right size, but kept up nice and well located. All of the amenities were included and communication was good.
Had A Wonderful Stay! by Allegra 06/18/2017
This home is the perfect size for two people. The kitchen had everything we needed, the king bed was SO comfortable, and we loved being able to walk Saturday Market! Even though the place is pet-friendly, there were no signs of past pets. I really appreciated the cleanliness and privacy of this home, and hope to stay again soon!
Cute Front Porch by Ashley 06/16/2017
This place was a nice getaway for 3 nights. We loved the thoughtful touches like including a growler to fill up at Deschutes! We took the bikes out (they are definitely meant for limited hills and road only) and utilized the cute front porch to play some of the games they provided like Scrabble. The bed is very comfortable and the home is clean and tidy.
Clean, Quiet, Pet Friendly by Dean 06/04/2017
Wonderful house, clean, quiet, pet friendly
Perfect for the Two of Us by Mattie and Elizabeth 05/31/2017
This place was great. It was perfect for the two of us. It truly was walkable to everything we wanted to do. It was very clean, had a great AC, the bed was so comfortable, and the recommendations from the host were perfect! Thank you!
Would Love to Return Soon by Laura and Matthew 05/27/2017
The Little Lava Cottage is THE PLACE to stay if you want to be in the heart of downtown Bend. Such a cute home with everything you need and truly a 5 minute walk from the great restaurants and retail that Bend has to offer. We couldn't have found a better place for our trip. Chris and Marta were very responsive and an awesome binder of local things to do based on distance from the Lava Cottage. We loved playing scrabble and relaxing in this adorable home and would love to return soon. Thanks for everything!!
Excellent Location by Clair 05/27/2017
This was the perfect spot for a quiet weekend in Bend. Excellent location to hit up down town and explore. The cottage was so cute and quaint and had everything we could need. The bed was SO COMFORTABLE. We will definitely return and hopefully stay here again!
Great Little Bungalow! by Penny 05/26/2017
Little Lava was a great little bungalow. Very well equipped, clean, and owner was very easy to communicate with. Couldn't ask for a better location. We parked at the home when we arrived and were able to walk to breweries, restaurants, and old town, for our 2 day stay.
Great Spot to stay in Bend! by Madeline 05/21/2017
Great spot to stay in Bend! Very comfortable accommodations and perfect location. Outside sitting area is great for a nice day. We had a great time and will book again next time we are in Bend.
Very Comfortable by Kraige 05/21/2017
We had a great time staying at the Little Lava IN. It is very comfortable and close to great restaurants and shopping. Fortunately, we arrived on "First Friday", where shops and businesses stay open until 9, the town was jamming with people and energy. Saturday night was much more laid backed. If you have the time a day trip to Smith Rock State Park is not to be missed.
Perfect for Our Short Stay! by Ashley & Hayes 05/18/2017
This place was perfect for our short stay - we even took advantage of the bikes in the shed, which are an experience to say the least... The growler was a nice touch!
A Top Notch Experience! by Laura & Matthew 05/15/2017
The Little Lava cottage is the perfect place to stay in Bend. We were able to explore so many great places downtown and enjoy Drake park with our fur-baby, Blue! We will definitely be back! A top notch experience!

Spectacular! by Kevin 03/20/2017
Our trip to Little Lava was spectacular! The location is central, and within blocks of McMenamin's Old St. Francis. It was equipped with everything we needed, including unexpected amenities such as internet, cable, a BBQ grill, a dish washer, and a coffee maker! When we come back to Bend, we will definitely see if the Little Lava is available.

I Would Highly Recommend this Place by Jeff 10/27/2016
The place is located so centrally with easy access to everything in town. My hosts were very quick to communicate with me upon booking and especially when I accidentally locked myself out of the house. They quickly called me and helped rectify the situation. I would highly recommend this place for a single person or couple.

We loved the coffee and everything left for us! Having NFLRedzone was awesome as well and the location was perfect!
Clean, comfortable and great location by Gwyn 08/13/2016
We loved the Little Lave Cottage! Perfect location and perfect size for two. The place was immaculate, and the air conditioning was very welcome during the summer heat. For a variety of reasons, we ended up spending more time at the cottage than originally planned and making a few meals there, and it was very comfortable with everything we needed. I have no doubt we will be back to Little Lava Cottage!
Great location by Mattew 08/03/2016
One of our best Airbnb stays! Great location, super functional and wonderful space. The outdoor patio was amazing for the summer weather.
Could Walk or Bike to Everything We Needed by Amy 08/02/2016
My husband and I were excited to spend a couple days in a Tiny House. The house had everything we needed and a very comfortable king sized bed. We used the two bikes to get all around town and could walk or bike to everything we needed. Bend is an amazing town!! I want to move there. The owner was very available and offered great suggestions. We hope to be back!
Great location! Comfortable and clean! by Elizabeth 06/16/2016

We Had a Great Time! by Elizabeth M. 04/13/2016
We had a great time staying at the Little Lava Cottage. Although it is relatively small, the use of space is excellent and the outdoor area makes it feel much larger. It fit our little family comfortably (two adults, a 4 y.o. and a 17 month old). We will definitely consider staying here again next time.
