The River Gem Bungalow is a bright and cheerful one bedroom treasure nestled in the heart of Bend's popular Westside with a location that can't be beat!

Right across the street from the Deschutes River, it is within walking distance of the Old Mill District, historic downtown, Les Schwab Amphitheater, and numerous breweries.

Directly behind the house is Bend's newest park, Miller's Landing: a riparian strip of riverfront with nesting osprey, walking trails, and excellent river access.

Only a few steps away is a charming footbridge that takes you over the river on an easy walk to Columbia Park and "Pirate Playground", a wonderland for kids.

This natural-contemporary style home features high ceilings, lots of windows, a cozy loft and artistic touches that highlight the authentic Bend lifestyle. Relax on the deck or under the aspens in the big backyard, surrounded by mature trees and landscaping.

If you prefer to get out and explore, there are plenty of hiking and mountain bike trails just minutes from town in the Deschutes National Forest. The spectacular Cascade Mountains and many lakes are an easy 20 minute drive providing endless opportunities for outdoor adventures.

This home proudly features European style bedding with fresh, clean duvet covers and high thread count linens, a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, washer, dryer, DVD player, wireless internet, games and much more for you to discover!

This little gem is in the perfect location. We were able to walk to the Old Mill District, 10 barrell brewery and Downtown. Walk down to the river and watch the surfers or kayakers practicing, it is quite intriguing. Although close to everything it is still a quiet neighborhood. The back yard was perfect for our Charlie dog to play and the inside is nicely decorated and cozy! Although the weather didnt allow us to bike, we did get to play in snow in our back yard. Thank you for an amazing weekend away!

We had a wonderful stay! We really appreciated how available and helpful Bluebird Day was. The bungalow was lovely: clean, bright, with a great backyard, within walking distance to downtown, close to the river and parks, had everything you could want... itd be easy to stay a while. One highlight of our trip was using the bicycles (with locks and helmets!) that come with the bungalow to go listen to live, free, music in Mirror Pond Park. Its evident how the details had really been considered with this place. We hope to come back again.

We loved the little bungalow. Just steps to the river trail for our morning walk and easy distance to downtown and the Old Mill District. We go to Bend every couple of months to visit family and will be renting this house again.

We couldnt have been HAPPIER with our stay!! We walked to the Deschutes Brewery tasting room, 10 Barrel Pub, and the kiddos favorite was the "pirate ship park" across the bridge! The bungalow was the perfect size for our small family, and had everything we needed to have a stress free weekend vacation. Traveling is usually stressful with a two year old boy, but even he loved it. Thanks for making our first visit to Bend such a great experience...I would recommend this spot for ANYONE looking for a pad to land while you explore all the fun stuff bend has to offer. We will def be coming back...THANK YOU!!

Perfect size for us since we were out during the day and early evenings. I was a little worried about privacy and noise when I read it was near a park. Not a problem! The quiet street ends just beyond the house, and a pathway leads to the park which is just out of view. Very convenient in-town location

My partner and I (plus our pup) stayed for 4 relaxing nights and the River Gem Bungalow was PERFECT. Exceptionally clean with all the amenities we needed. The bed was amazingly comfortable and we slept great the whole trip. We used the bikes a couple evenings to go to town - what a fabulous thing to offer renters! We were close to the park for walks with the dog which was great. The neighborhood is lovely and the people are friendly. We were in need of a vacation and this place hit the spot perfectly. Thank you!!!

This is such a cool and unique place to stay in bend. It is just steps from the river -- lots of opportunity to paddle board, kayak, etc. Downtown, old mill district are walking distance! It is nice and cozy.. Great place to spend with family. I cant wait to go back to Bend and stay with bluebird day rentals!

Thank you for the awesome vacation rental. We fell in love with Bend and will definately be coming back. The location of the River Gem Bungalow is great for beer lovers like us, as there are about six breweries within walking distance. The bungalow is next to a park and a second park is easily accessable by crossing the river. The neighborhood is lovely and easy to walk around. Not only is beer easily reachable by walking so is great food and downtown shopping.
