We had one of the best trips ever this past week. My family was in town for our annual family reunion and we decided to stay on the west side. We have teen boys and we wanted to make sure that they had things to do. This home is in the perfect location, we walked everywhere and enjoyed the neighborhood so much. It is just around the corner from where my father grew up. Wonderful coffee, shops, and restaurants nearby. The cottage is perfectly stocked, the beds are incredibly comfortable and the host was communicative and very friendly. We will definitely be staying again. Thanks for such a great trip. .

We had a great time on our visit to Bend and we loved the neighborhood and nearby Newport Market, Nancy P Bakery. The house was spacious for our family of four and the amenities, soaps, etc. were extremely nice. Everything was thought well thought out and plenty of extra supplies. We were very well taken care of almost like we were at a B&B. :) we would definitely stay again, and would highly recommend Sparks cottage! And the staff was great with all sorts of recommendations! 🥰

Irene LeeNovember 2022 Paige and the Bluebird Day team are quick to respond, very informative and friendly as can be. The house was very clean, beds were comfy, and amenities were exactly what we needed. The house is very close to all the fun places, including Old Mill District, lots of breweries and major roads. Within walking distance, there are coffee shops and a grocery store for added convenience. Our favorite was Nancy Ps! The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful, which really helped us sleep and relax at night. Would definitely stay here again for a future visit!

Sparks Cottage in Bend was quite lovely. We built a fire two of the three nights and enjoyed the large kitchen and close proximity to coffee shop, bagel place, and the Mill shops. The cottage was in a quiet neighborhood and the beds were really comfortable. Loved the large bathtub and Gary liked the walk-in shower. Thanks for everything!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week in Bend - loved the place and it had everything we needed including toiletries/shampoo/conditioner, a fully stocked kitchen and spices for home cooked meals. The fast WiFi was great for us as we worked remotely here and there. Great location, about a 15 min walk from downtown Bend and lots of great restaurants and breweries. Spent most of our time up at Mt. Bachelor which was a super easy 30 min drive from the home. Will definitely be back!

This home is perfect. Its very clean, and this was our first Airbnb stay during covid- we felt very comfortable and safe. Beds were very comfortable! Nice amenities throughout, from the big updated kitchen to the clean and modern bathrooms. The living space was cozy too. We loved how it was set back from the street, so you could enjoy the yard in the evenings. Loved the bikes! Great location. We loved the proximity to Newport Market, Nancy Ps bakery and Backporch Coffee. Great recommendations from the host! This trip was just what we needed for our first getaway in a long time. Cant wait to come back and stay here again sometime.
