Description

Welcome to the Goldfinch Retreat! In walking distance to all of the fun shops, restaurants, and pubs on the Westside, the location of the Goldfinch Retreat is fantastic. Tucked in a quaint and quiet Bend neighborhood, you will enjoy the deep peace of dark starry nights and the gentle sound of flowing water from the charming garden pond.

This very special home is the ultimate in Eco-whimsy, and a shining example of environmental stewardship combined with master craftsmanship. Green built with reclaimed and salvaged materials including corrugated metal from the Gilchrist Lumber kiln sheds, old telephone poles, pine wood ceilings salvaged from the Longbell Lumber Company, Red Oak from a tear-down home, and a recycled metal roof, the Goldfinch Retreat exemplifies the rebirth of artistic design and the authentic, down to earth culture that has emerged from Bend’s Mill Town heyday.

Step out of a fast-paced world and into this lovely peaceful home filled with upscale comfy furnishings, artful whimsy, and inspired craftsmanship. There are plenty of sequestered nooks for unwinding, and wonderful gathering areas for families and friends to create memories that will last a lifetime. Stoke a wood fire and curl up with a good book under a Pendleton blanket or watch a movie on the 10 foot movie screen with everyone gathered together. Watch a sporting event on the HDTV or access your own personal Netflix.

Prepare an unforgettable meal in the fabulous, fully equipped gourmet kitchen with Energy Star stainless steel appliances and a chef’s gas range. Sit down dining for 8 -10 in the spacious dining area is the perfect setting for special gatherings of your family and friends.

The master bedroom features a high quality King bed with European style bedding, high thread count linens and a clean, fluffy down duvet. There are gorgeous linens and down duvets in the Queen bedroom as well. The twin bunk room has three twin beds, a tv under one of the bunks to watch ‘toons, and a secret “Kid Cave” filled with toys and games.

After a day of playing in the hills, come “home” and experience the true Bend lifestyle! Cook out on the charcoal Weber grill on the back patio under a Central Oregon sky filled with stars. Enjoy picking strawberries and raspberries in the summer from the gardens, and peaches in the fall.

If you prefer to get out of town and into nature, there are endless hiking and mountain bike trails just minutes from town. The spectacular Cascade Mountains and many lakes are and easy 20 minute drive providing endless opportunities for outdoor adventures. Phil’s mountain bike trails are an easy 3 miles to the West, as well as many walking and hiking trails along the Deschutes River right out your front door!

Did we mention world class skiing? Mount Bachelor Ski Resort is an easy 25 minute drive from Bend. This mountain is a blast, with a wide variety of terrain and trails that will keep you blissfully enthralled.

All Bluebird Day homes are lovingly cared for with the intention of offering you a world class authentic Bend vacation experience. Locally owned and operated, we provide you with a unique opportunity to experience the magic of Bend like a local. We care about our neighborhoods and community, feel passionate about preserving historic properties, and are delighted to offer you a glimpse of our unique and friendly Bend lifestyle.

My family and I got to enjoy this beautiful, charming and modern home in October 2016. The house is absolutely amazing with all of the wood and details. The beds were cozy and my girls enjoyed finding little nooks to play in as we parents enjoyed relaxing by the wood stove. The home was walking distance from great restaurants and the management company was easy to work with. We look forward to another stay there and highly recommend

Perfect house for a family We stayed here with our four little kids (2,4,6,8) and the house was absolutely perfect. From the media room where everyone could catch a movie to the bunks where our kids all stayed and the "hidden" room full of toys. The backyard and front yard were both used plenty in the snow and everything inside was well appointed. The location was great ... Walking distance to 10Barrel ... Even in the snow. We wouldnt hesitate to stay here again.

Ive stayed in this home multiple times and I cant believe Ive never written a review. Ive stayed here in the summer, doors open, breeze coming through. All the flowers in the front & back yard, so nice to relax. This wonderful home is in walking (or biking) distance to the beautiful park along the river, to cute downtown with all its restaurants & bars. Great location. And in the winter, it is right off the main highway to go skiing! I love the open floorplan. Ive stayed here with a gaggle of my lady friends. Ive stayed here with couple friends & their children. Ive stayed here with just my hubby & I. It works for all types of groups. The kitchen & dining area & living area are all in one great room, so everyone can hang out and talk. Otherwise, there are a couple of cozy nooks & crannies for reading a book or watching a film. Would highly recommend this house for all types of groups and in all seasons. Cant wait to come back!

Stayed here for a 3 day weekend with 3 parents and 3 kids. We were there for bike races at Deschutes Brewery which was super close; as is pretty much everything. Our interactions with the rental company (Bluebird Day) were pleasant and they were very easy to deal with. The house is set up well for kids with toys (and a secret play room upstairs!), lot of movies and big screen movie room. We really enjoyed the open floor plan of the downstairs and the nice materials used in the construction of the house. We walked to some breweries and restaurants nearby for dinners. We cooked breakfast in the nice open kitchen. The room layout provides a lot of privacy and the beds were all very comfortable. We have probably stayed in a dozen rentals in Bend and this was the best so far. We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends.

This is the third house rented thru Blue Bird in Bend Oregon and just like the first two amazing. House was very clean and had everything needed. Located in the center of Bend Oregon everything is within walking distance or a short bike ride. Thank you for an amazing stay and look forward to yet another one. The team at Blue bird does an amazing job at making sure your stay is the best it can be.

This was only our second experience using AirBnB and I think we might be spoiled now. This house was so much better than we anticipated and what a great location! The communication was on point and the hosts were very accommodating! Wed buy the house as a vacation home if we could! They had everything you would need from spices, coffee, toys for my little guy!

We had a family of six here for a three-day weekend in mid-September 2016. This home is compact, comfortable, cute, well-maintained and appointed, and perfect for 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 young children. Walking distance to nearly everything downtown Bend has to offer, including many good restaurants. The kitchen is well-equipped to prepare full meals with a big dining room table. Home is located in a quiet neighborhood with a 10pm noise ordinance. Worked with Bluebird management, we had a minor issue with a smoke alarm needing battery replacement, this rental company was a joy to deal with.
