Response from Don:
We are glad you enjoyed the Cottage and gardens. Wish you had more time to explore central Oregon and all it has to offer. Glad you enjoyed our dinner recommendation to Drake and some of the other fine dining in Bend. Please tell your friends about the proximity of the Cottage to downtown-4-5 minute WALK and the seclusion of the grounds. No need to be on a busy street just to be close to all of the activities and eateries downtown. Do come back and stay longer-you were a pleasure to host.

Talk about creme de la creme...I've stayed at a lot of Airbnbs, but this one was far and above the best of the rest. No wonder Don and Marline make the "Superhost" category. Wow! Unbelievable! Everything was done to the Nth degree. If you're looking for a one bedroom Airbnb …

Thank you, Jeannine, for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review. WOW! While Marline and I spend numerous hours cleaning and ensuring everything is working properly, I had never thought about checking the function of the curling iron or hair dryer. --Sure, I check for the presence of those items and even open the first aide kit to ensure contents are adequate, but I have never checked the function. Your observation was greatly appreciated and when you described the functions desired in a quality hair dryer, off to the store I was. As promised, you had a new hair drier the next day. Perhaps one of the things that makes the Second Street Cottage unique is its seclusion yet proximity to downtown Bend. Situated on over .25 acres of manicured gardens and enhanced natural vegetation, the property seems like a true oasis. Yet, one can walk to downtown (passing by parks and over bridges of the Deschutes) in just 4 to 5 minutes. Please do come back and tell your friends. DonP

Wonderful, charming cottage on a small slice of heaven, and all within walking distance of downtown Bend. The 1br mini house has everything you would need, and the caretakers haven't missed anything. The decor is tasteful, the towels fluffy, and the experience top notch. The o…

Wow! never been called a "living treasure". Marline and I do enjoy hosting and if out Cottagers want to engage, we are happy to share the history, vibe and predicable future of central Oregon. And for those who prefer no host contact, we are okay with that too. Please do come back and spend more time enjoying the area and our "slice (.25 acre+) of heaven".

My family of four stayed in the cottage 4 nights and we were all very pleased with our stay. The cottage is located a short walk from downtown shops and food. It is also close to the frozen yogurt place my kids love. Don is very helpful and checked in with us frequently to mak…

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Marline and I try to provide the best of the best of everything for our Cottagers. Glad you liked the coffee we provided. Whether it is 800 thread count sheets or a selection of spices and condiments, we strive to provide our guests a value added lodging experience. We also do check in with our Cottagers to ensure that everything is meeting their needs and expectations. This is especially true with those traveling with young children. We realize travelers have many lodging choices in Bend and appreciate your trust. Please do stay with us again and thanks for your business.

Don's cottage was very clean and warm. The fruit basket on the table was a fine touch. A wonderful space close within walking distance of some great pubs and restaurants. Thank you Don

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Marline and I strive to provide each guest with an immaculately clean environment. We actually spend 4-5 hours cleaning and restocking before new Cottagers arrive. Each time we deep clean something different so everything always appears fresh and new. And yes, weather permitting, we even clean the outside of the skylights. Do come back and see us again. Best, DonP

What an amazing cottage! I spent an entire month in the cottage. Don and Marline were so nice and always made sure I had everything I needed. The location was amazing as I walked to downtown and the park! It was the cleanest place I have ever stayed and you can tell they take a l…

Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review. Marline and I had been considering adding a Level 2 Electric Vehicle charger to the Cottage for some time and your visit made it happen. Thanks for educating us on the selection and use of the EV charger. The secure installation immediately adjacent to the Cottage parking pad is both convenient and discrete for guests. Installation of the Charger also clearly signals our commitment to protecting the environment while enhancing the guest experience. We do strive to provide an immaculate environment and quality furnishing. Since we perform most of the cleaning and maintenance of the Cottage, we can easily identify anything which might need extra attention. It is common for us to touch up paint or clean any stains as soon as they are noticed, thus the almost “never lived in” appearance. And with Marline and I both having healthcare backgrounds, we know to pay extra attention to cleaning; a task which routinely take 4-5 manhours, regardless of the prior guest’s length of stay. The Cottage is licensed for up to four guests and especially in warmer weather, lives larger than its size. The only access to the bathroom is through the bedroom so we try to communicate that to any party with 3 or more travelers. As you mentioned, from the Cottage one can walk nearly anywhere is Bend, especially downtown. What is unique about the Cottage is that it is situated on over .25 acres and secluded. The retreat like setting is home to numerous deer and it is common to see them sleeping right outside the Cottage windows. Please do tell your Electric Vehicle owning friends about the Cottage. We believe we are the only short term vacation home in Bend to offer the Charging amenity.

This Cottage stay was simply amazing. Don was an incredible host and takes pride in providing a 5 star experience... I would give it 6/5. He's thought of every way to be hospitable and make your stay as good as can be. The cottage was quaint, private, remodeled, clean and comfort…

"Thank you Katie for the great review! I really appreciate that you said a..."5 star EXPERIENCE". Marline and I recognize that lodging can be simply a place to slept but that is not what the Second Street Cottage is about. As you noted in your review, it is so much more. Typically, we spend over 4 hours cleaning, prepping and maintaining the Cottage between each new arrival. We want each Cottager (what we call our guests) to feel like they are the first to have ever stayed in it. As a comparison, hotel housekeeping staff are allocated 15-20 minutes to prepare a room. The difference is discernible."
