Welcome to the Star Cottage! A 1920's historic Craftsman built during the time of Bend’s mill heyday, lovingly restored with all of the modern amenities and hip, eclectic charm. Soak in the private salt system hot tub on the deck while your furry dog friends enjoy the spacious, open back yard. Hop on a cruiser bike and explore Bend like a local!

Tucked into Bend's up-and-coming historic Hill Street neighborhood centered between the heart of downtown Bend, the Box Factory and Old Mill Districts, you can walk everywhere in minutes. Walk to Jackson’s Corner Restaurant (the local’s fave), Palate Coffee, Crux Brewing, Atlas Cider, and all the shops and restaurants downtown. WebCyclery, a huge bike shop in a historic church is around the corner, and Market of Choice, Bend's gourmet grocery is just down the street. 

So many delightful surprises await you in this historic gem! Charming and sunny with plenty of windows, gorgeous restored hardwood floors, hip and eclectic upscale furnishings and local art work. Cozy up with a good book, watch a movie, enjoy free high-speed internet, or play games with family and friends. Kids will love the Star Loft, equipped with 2 high quality twin futons.

Enjoy outdoor living Bend-style! Challenge your friends to a game of 'corn hole' or croquet in the huge back yard, or toss a Frisbee with your dogs. Gather fresh herbs and berries from the gardens, grill out on the back deck or soak in your own private salt system hot tub under a Central Oregon sky filled with stars.

Prepare an unforgettable meal in the fully equipped gourmet kitchen newly updated with black stainless appliances. Sit-down dining for 6 makes for many wonderful memories to be made.

The key to a fantastic vacation is a good night’s sleep! Enjoy gorgeous brand new European style bedding with high thread count linens, down duvets, and superior quality mattresses. The front bedroom has a King sized bed, and a Queen in the second bedroom. There are 2 high quality twin sized futons and linens provided in the upstairs Sky Loft (accessible by a ladder through the closet in the queen bedroom).

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!

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. There is a Mount Bachelor shuttle blocks away that will take you to and from the mountain.

Bluebird are clearly experienced hosts. They outfitted this cozy little home with everything we needed for our 5-night stay. Pro move: WiFi password is the first line in the welcome book. All the kitchen basics are there. The minimal square footage was well utilized, from the dining table/prep table in the middle of the kitchen to the attic which converted into a third bedroom. The hot tub was a nice touch. And our kids appreciated the back yard (which had snow in it during our visit). Walkable to downtown, even with a 5-year-old, so that counts as a good location for me. Biking wasnt an option this time of year, but during the Summer it would be a breeze to get downtown or to the river by bike. We enjoyed our stay!

We had a wonderful time at Star Cottage. We walked all over to the grocery store, downtown for coffee and the farmers market, to Old Mill to listen to concerts, and more. This house is very comfortable, with a fully stocked kitchen, great a/c, and a relaxing back yard. Our dog loved the fenced in yard. He spent many hours sunning himself on the deck. We would love to stay here again!

This is one of the top 2 Air BnBs we have ever stayed at in terms of comfort, convenience, coziness, cleanliness and amenities. The beds were so soft and all linenes were nice. Perfect hot tub, great bikes to ride to the bars/shops, easy to get to everything from here and the house is adorable. Clean as a whistle! We would love to come back.

This little place was fantastic. We loved the openness of the kitchen and living space. The location was quiet and safe, easy to walk to the grocery store, food carts and breweries. The kids LOVED the attic loft bedroom with their own star skylight. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub and the gas stove, and had a hard time leaving because everything was so cozy. Perfectly dog friendly too!

Adorable cottage in a perfect location! We loved our stay at the Star Cottage. The bungalow city feel was exactly what we were looking for. Our kids had a blast in the upstairs room with ladder access. The beds and furniture were comfy and cozy. We were able to cook most of our meals to save money instead of eating out for every meal. The Star Cottage even had dog bowls for our furry friend that we brought along. Highly recommend staying here for small families with pets!

We loved everything about our stay at the Star Cottage! The location is terrific for all things Bendwe even left the car behind and walked to many placesand the neighborhood is quiet. The cottage is squeaky clean, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is equipped with everything youd need for cooking a meal, the bathroom is stocked with good quality toiletries and plush towels, and the outdoor spacesincluding the hot tub and bikes (yes!)are so inviting. The icing on the cake is how stylish everything isthe decor is colorful and playfulplus theres lots of natural light. We appreciated the timely and detailed communications from the Bluebird Day property manager. All in all, the Star Cottage is a perfect home away from home in Bend.
