Experience Bend’s vibrant, local community with Bluebird Day!

Amazing location, WALK EVERYWHERE! New, Modern home with hip decor, soaring architecture, sunny windows, cruiser bikes, European style bedding, patio, gas grill, fully equipped gourmet kitchen, and a great layout for families and friends.

The High Desert Dwell is in walking distance to all of the best of Bend, the location is exceptional. Walk a couple of blocks to Chow (the local’s fave!), Kanpai Sushi, Spork, and all of the fun shops, bakeries, coffee, pubs, and restaurants on Newport Avenue. Stroll through the Westside neighborhood and you are in Drake Park and downtown Bend in minutes. Or, hop on a cruiser bike and explore town like a local. Getting to 10 Barrel Brewing, the hub of the Bend Ale Trail, is an easy meander. The Old Mill and Les Schwab Amphitheater are easy to access by bike or a longer walk.

Boasting a spectacular architectural layout, this home has an open floor plan with high ceilings, windows, A/C and plenty of sunshine throughout. Enjoy the comfy and hip upscale modern-contemporary decor with artistic touches and treasures. Cozy up to the gas fireplace and watch a movie on the HDTV. Enjoy the beautiful hardwood floors, and sliding glass doors that open out onto the patio.

The master bedroom features a new, high quality King bed with European style bedding, high thread count linens and a clean, fluffy down duvet. There are gorgeous linens and down duvets in the two other bedrooms.

Cook an unforgettable meal in the fully equipped gourmet kitchen and sit down to dine with family and friends. Or, step out onto the patio and enjoy outside living “Bend style” while you and your friends cook out on the Weber gas grill.

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 6 miles to the West, as well as many walking and hiking trails along the Deschutes River!

Oh yes, and did we mention world class skiing? 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.

About Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals

Welcome to one of our favorite places! Since the first time we visited Bend 4 years ago, we knew we would one day buy a house on Bend's Westside. This house has exceeded our expectations! Our whole family can walk, bike, or scooter just about anywhere we want to go. We're close to the river, 3 great playgrounds, and all of our favorite restaurants and breweries. Despite living 7 hr. away in WA state, we continue to spend time in Bend every month because it truly is a special place. We hope you enjoy your time here as much as we do!

Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 2013

Great location and neighborhood. Near everything. Bright and clean, nice decor and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Really nice place. Designed with lots of windows so there is light everywhere. Open with high ceilings so it feels spacious. Small, semi private patio with a BBQ and chairs. Beds were comfortable and linens and towels were of good quality. Amenities, shampoo and soaps, books, etc. were nicely thought out. Garage was supplied with bikes and some helmets. The kitchen supplies were sufficient and we cooked several meals while there and didn't feel shorted with the way the kitchen was stocked. The location was in walking distance to 'Downtown, (a half mile), to the Old Mill District, maybe 3/4 mile away where you can rent rafts, kayaks and stand up paddle boards for cruising down the river. Right around the corner from many restaurants and coffee houses. Great fun to walk to Backporch Roasters for coffee each morning. Also just a few doors down from Newport Avenue Market, which, while expensive is a treat to shop in. It's also about 3 miles from Pete's Trails for hikers and mountain bikers and about 30 minutes to Mount Bachelor. Just one TV, but it had Netflix for movie watching.

A few suggestions to owners: We were four people and we could have used more plates since we had to wash after each use because there weren't enough to have a second meal without cleaning them. Also, we were there 4 nights and would have liked to unpack rather than living from our suitcases. Dressers in the bedrooms would be an excellent addition! Last, I personally like a TV in each bedroom....

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would return! Thanks for putting together a nice rental!

Super Clean, Modern and in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this home. I am often disappointed with the cleanliness of rentals but this house was super clean and well stocked. The kitchen had everything we needed and the bedding and linens were top notch. The house is new, modern and nicely decorated with clean lines. It is walking distance to downtown and to 10 Barrel & other many other brewpubs. There is a great grocery store, bakery & coffee shop all within a couple of blocks. There is a magnet school across the street but it was no concern at all. It is a cute little school and better than looking at someone's house. I am glad we found this house and a rental agency that takes such great care. We plan on returning many times.

Gorgeous, clean, spacious home in fantastic neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this home! There was plenty of room for our family of 4, and the management company was really accommodating and helpful. The house was spotless and perfect for our needs!! It's in a great neighborhood; you can walk to a grocery store and a ton of great restaurants, as well as the river and the Deschutes Trail. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this home!

Spacious, clean, and walk to restaurants

  • 5 of 5

I was able to book this last minute when a family emergency brought my family to town. All of the beds were very comfortable. There would be lots of room in the master bedroom for a pack n play and a toddler on the floor, if you needed it, but not really any outdoor or yard space. Based on other VRBO reviews, it seems people really care about TVs in a house, so be warned that this has just one in the living room. I usually use the kitchen in a vrbo quite a bit, but we didn't here, so I can't speak to it's amenities. There is a grocery that I would compare to a Trader Joes within a three minute walk. We ate at Kebaba, which is an easy walk, and recommend that. We also got take out from Spork one night, which was great. Back Porch coffee is within a few minutes walk, and we tried it once, but I'm not serious enough about my coffee to be a fan. Overall, this house is in a nice, safe neighborhood, with nearby amenities. We'd definitely stay here again as a group of adults, but would consider something else with a yard if we had the kiddos with us. On last note, it's a long flight of stairs from the main living area up to the bedrooms.
