My wife and I just returned from a 2 week long Oregon vacation. We spent the first week at the Second Street Cottage in Bend and we loved it! The Cottage is immaculately clean, perfectly located, and incredibly well-stocked with everything you could possibly need to have an amazing, entertaining, and relaxing stay in Bend. Within walking distance there is a great grocery store (Newport Avenue Market), a great place to rent bicycles (Sunnyside Sports),. and oodles of places to eat. The grounds are stunningly landscaped - we enjoyed relaxing on the awesome patio behind the Cottage each evening. Each day we made sure we returned from our adventures in time to enjoy the sunset. Don and Marline are the perfect hosts - they are there if you need them but they respect your privacy as well. Don knows everything Bend has to offer and he suggested two great adventures that we would not have discovered without his guidance. This is easily the best vacation rental property that we have ever experienced. Thanks Don and Marline!
This cottage is very well appointed (sharp knives, coffee, tea, condiments) and did not disappoint. It is close to downtown and within walking distance to many good restaurants. The host is very attentive and works hard to make sure everything is in order.
This smartly designed, comfortable, and well appointed cottage is ideally located in the heart of Bend, within walking distance of the Deschutes river, downtown, and the west side restaurants and bars on Galveston. The location is also perfect for the west side driving excursions to the Three Sisters Wilderness for outdoor recreation. Donny is a great communicator and checks in to ensure everything is ok during your stay. The cottage is quiet and the vaulted ceilings and skylights, along with the modern amenities, make for the perfect home away. The outdoor area is beautifully landscaped and the patio is perfect for morning tea or meals outside. I have traveled to a lot of VRBO properties and Donny and his wife have thought of everything when outfitting the cottage for travelers. I look forward to future return visits.
We have stayed in rentals throughout the U.S. and Europe and Second Street Cottage is by far the nicest and best equipped accommodation we’ve stayed in - from shampoo to salad dressings to coolers to champagne. Extremely clean and ready for us with the air conditioner running. Don was always willing to offer suggestions for restaurants, stores, and day trips. We’d highly recommend this cottage to anyone.
The cottage was just perfect & Don is a great host. I’ve already mentioned it to several friends interesting in visiting Bend.
