The Sparks Cottage was exactly as described! The rooms were clean and comfortable and the location was walkable to all the things we liked to do. The kitchen was well appointed and we had a great time cooking breakfast with food from Newport! I would definitely recommend for anyone!

Loved our visit to Bend! The cottage was charming. We had wonderful hikes, rowing excursions and kayaking adventures in the near, (and somewhat near) vicinity. Loved the local brew houses, eclectic restaurants and charming breakfast spots in town. Wonderful place if you like a laid back atmosphere.

Wow, what a treat to stay at this lovely home. We only did 2 nights here but I easily couldve stayed a week or more. Its in a great location right by tons of delicious restaurants and a super cute natural grocery store across the street. We had a great afternoon just drinking beer on the front porch, and then riding the (generously provided) bikes downtown for dinner. The house itself is great immaculate and newly remodeled. It had everything we needed! Thanks for a wonderful stay :)

We rented Sparks Cottage for overflow housing for a family reunion. It worked out perfectly! My out of sate family enjoyed the location and found the house to be comfortable and well appointed. We were experiencing 90+ temperatures during our time in Bend, but the cottage stayed cool and comfortable. We will definitely rent Sparks again in the future and will recommend it to others.

We stayed in Sparks Cottage for a week in July. It was great! The house is well appointed and tastefully decorated. The location was great with a coffee shop, grocery store and good restaurants only 2 blocks or less from the house. We also walked to The Lot to enjoy the food trucks and we used the bikes to head over to Drake Park and on down to Old Mill. Its a nice house in a great central location. Great customer service too. Our grill was broken so we sent an email just to let the owners know. The next day we had a new grill when came home at the end of the day. I would definitely book through Bluebird again

This was a really cool, modern house in a great neighborhood! Only a short 10-minute walk (part of which is through the park) to get to restaurants, shops, farmers market, breweries, etc. Good space both in front and out back to hang out and relax. Wish we could have stayed longer both at the house and in Bend. Would definitely return!

We came for a duathlon race and the cottage was very close to our race venue which was nice, but also biking distance to several brewerys and downtown. WE loved the cottage and it was very nicely redone. Beds were great!

Great location in a quiet neighborhood. Walking distance to downtown, parks and good food. Sparks cottage was clean, cute and was perfect for our family of 5. The kids did not want to leave. . . and neither did I. Rebecca was great with communication and accommodated our last minute change to extend our stay. Looking forward to next time!
