The Lavender Cottage is an enchanting 2 bedroom 1 bath classic Bend cottage built in the 1920's during Bend's mill town heyday. Bright, sunny, and well cared for, this home is completely updated with all the modern amenities. The fabulous location on Bend's popular Westside, just 4 blocks from Drake Park, makes this home the perfect choice for a relaxing and authentic Bend vacation experience.

On a breezy summer day you may enjoy the home's charming private gardens filled with lavender, culinary herbs, and native plants. Have dinner on the deck with friends, cooking out on the huge gas grill, or relax in the salt system hot tub under a desert sky filled with stars.

Experience the true down-to-earth Bend lifestyle by taking the provided cruiser bikes for a spin around town. You are a 5 minute bike ride to the heart of downtown, crossing a charming wooden bridge across the Deschutes River, and meandering through Drake Park. Enjoy a short stroll to great restaurants, pubs, shops and coffee, all just a few blocks away!

If you prefer to get out of town and into nature, there are plenty of hiking and mountain bike trails just minutes from town. Mount Bachelor Ski Resort and the spectacular Cascade Mountains with many lakes are an easy 20 - 25 minute drive providing endless opportunities for your outdoor adventures.

This home proudly features European style bedding with fresh, clean duvet covers and high thread count linens, new, comfy beds in the two bedrooms that are upstairs, one full bathroom downstairs, a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, washer dryer, dvd, cable, wireless internet, games, and much more for you to discover!

We really enjoyed our stay at Lavender Cottage! I am a clean freak and it passed my standards. It was nice to have as fully equipped a kitchen as one can expect from a VRBO. The location is ideal - 10 minute walk to the park and downtown is just beyond that. A big plus were the "permanent" food trucks just a block away. The neighborhood is quiet and felt very safe. We would definitely recommend Lavender Cottage! Bluebird Rental made everything so easy.

This house was totally perfect - so incredibly close to downtown, and such a comfortable cozy spot. The grassy back yard was a great spot to hang out with our kids (when they werent going nuts at nearby Columbia or Compass Parks), and they loved the fresh strawberries growing in the planters. The beds were really cozy (havent slept so well in ages), and the house was very well-apportioned. Only thing I couldnt find was a coffee grinder. The neighborhood is totally cute and had tons of amenities - including delicious Foxtail Bakery, 10 Barrel Brewery, and 1 Eyed Sisters coffee. Newport Market is so close for anything you could think of wanting. 3 days wasnt really long enough to explore all of Bend, so well have to come back again soon!

I didnt think Id arrive to see the little cottage just as it appeared in the pictures. Even the poppies were in bloom! We are a family of 5 and the cottage worked perfectly for our two night stay in Bend. There is far too much to see in Bend, and wed love to come back. When we do well stay here again. The house is so comfortable and warmly decorated; the hot tub was a very nice perk; the kitchen is fully stocked; beds were comfy--everyone enjoyed our stay. It was especially nice to be able to walk to some delicious food finds--The Victorian Cafe, 10 Barrel Brewing, The Lot with all the food trucks....everything was walkable. If you are planning to explore Bend, this is a great place to stay!

The Lavender Cottage is AMAZING!! We could not have asked for a better place to stay during our adventures in Bend! I told Rebecca that I was interested in something with character, a hot tub, and bikes, from which we could easily walk to parks, downtown, and great small order, I know. However, she paired us up perfectly with this charming cottage that could not have been a better fit for our family! We ate and played our way through Bend, and only had to get into our car to drive to Smith Rock and Shevlin Park, as well as a couple of other random driving adventures we took. The food is all amazing: Pizza Mondo, Chow, Spork, Jacksons Corner, a variety of incredible food trucks RIGHT around the corner, Deschutes Brewery Pub (truffle mac & cheese is ridiculous!), and the list goes on . . . Rebecca & the Bluebird Day staff have created an incredible binder to describe a wide array of food & entertainment options in the area. If you choose to eat in, the kitchen is love

Our group stayed in the Lavender Cottage last week during a ski weekend. After a long day on the slopes, the hot tub was perfect for our sore muscles, and the beds were extremely comfortable. One of us even slept comfortably on the couch. The proximity to great restaurants made it convenient when we were too tired to cook, although the kitchen was well stocked and perfect for our breakfast creations. The owners left thorough instruction for us and checked in with us upon arrival to make sure we had everything we needed. I will definitely come back and recommend to friends.

what a find many years ago and we keep returning to this perfect hideaway. Close to downtown, pubs, all kinds of restaurants, all within walking distance. And a well appointed kitchen if you want to stay in one night and cook or barbecue. And best of all, after a day of hiking, golf, rafting, shopping, etc, a wonderful hot tub!

Location, location, location. Walking distance to almost everything...biking to everywhere else. This place puts you so close to so many wonderful spots. 10 barrel, chow, newport market, spork, primal cuts...the list goes on and on. Weve been to Bend several times, and our mission this time was to not eat or go anywhere weve been in the past, and this house along with the owners amazing suggestions made it very easy. Having the grill and the hot tub made it very easy to just stay in and have dinner at home when we wanted. The tub was great after a long day of hiking around Crater Lake. The front porch made for a great place to take in the afternoon shade, some local micro brews, and a game of cards to pass the time until our next culinary adventure. I also cant say enough about the owner, she and her staff were very responsive to any and all questions I had about the property, about suggestions of where to eat, what to do. The bed was very comfortable, plenty of towels, a well st

This cottage is beautiful with everything you need to feel at home. The beds and linens were comfortable and both the front porch and the backyard were lovely places to relax. We were there with our two boys for three nights and wish we had stayed a couple weeks. The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to the river, downtown and several playgrounds. We would definitely stay here again!

My girlfriend, sister, and I stayed at the cottage last week for four nights and had a fantastic time. The cottage was super close to downtown. We really liked how the cottage came with a few bikes for us to ride around. We rode bikes everywhere...definitely a lifestyle we could get used to. The neighbors on both sides of us were super friendly and helpful with local recommendations. The house was clean, cute, and totally hassle free. Hope to come back soon. Thanks Audra and Paige.

Such an amazing foxy place to stay and the location couldnt be any better, especially with the available cruiser bikes you can take into old town (the best part of Bend). Three of us came over from Boise for an all ladies mountain bike camp but didnt want to stay in a hotel. The house has such charm, from the front and back porches to the landscaping on the outside. Inside, exceptionally clean and had all that we needed and more. The laundry room was great for keeping our bikes safe and the washer and dryer for our daily bike clothing. Beds were very comfortable and linens were more then enough all around. Hot tub was an added bonus and a necessity after long days on the bike. We only wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy a bbq in the back yard and ride back into town on the cruiser bikes!
