River Willow Cottage
Deschutes River kayaking in Bend, Oregon

Bend, Oregon Area Resources and Recreation

From River Willow Cottage it is an easy walk along the river trail to the Old Mill District or to the Les Schwab Amphitheater to enjoy an outdoor concert — just 8 minutes away. It is also an easy walk downtown for dinner, shopping or just a stroll along the river to Mirror Pond in Drake Park.

The cottage is only 12 feet from the river with a private patio and river access for kayaking, canoeing and floating. I have tubes and a kayak available for my guests to enjoy on the river right from my private dock. If being on the Deschutes River is not your thing, you will be drawn to the relaxing atmosphere on the patio overlooking the river and may find it hard to leave and enjoy the rest of what Bend has to offer.

We have an amazing array of restaurants, shops, breweries and boutique businesses within easy walking and bicycling range from River Willow Cottage. From the cottage you are close to Mt. Bachelor, Sun River and many other amazing natural attractions including the High Desert Museum, volcanic features like Subway Cave and Newberry National Volcanic Monument. Central Oregon has an amazing variety of scenic, cultural and sporting opportunities available for every taste. Here are some of my favorite places and links to resources that will be helpful in planning your stay. Bend is relatively flat and extremely bicycle friendly. Consider bringing your own or renting bicycles for your stay.

divider "Even though it was chilly in Bend when we stayed at Willow Cottage (in fact, it even snowed), we had six quite cosy nights there, thanks to the excellent gas stove. The furniture and other amenities are high-quality and very comfortable, and the shower was great. Marybeth had the cabinet well stocked with snacks and drinks, and the fridge was big enough for our morning milk, leftovers, etc. The beautiful location can't be beat! All in all, Willow Cottage is a fantastic value. We look forward to staying there in the summer, when we can really take advantage of the lovely patio.."
