The RIVER GEM BUNGALOW is a bright and cheerful one bedroom treasure nestled in the heart of Bend with a location that can’t be beat!

Directly behind the house is Bend’s newest park, Miller’s Landing: a riparian strip of riverfront with osprey nesting, 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 fun and contemporary home features high ceilings, lots of windows, a cozy loft and artistic touches that highlight the authentic Bend lifestyle. There is HDTV with cable channels, DVD with a DVD library, and free high speed internet..

The bedroom features a high quality Queen sized bed with 100% cotton high thread count linens and a down duvet, because there is nothing more important on your vacation than a good night’s sleep!

Cook a meal with friends in the fully equipped kitchen which includes a dishwasher, microwave, oven, and all of the cooking utensils you need for entertaining. Or, cook out on the gas grill under the Central Oregon sky filled with stars.

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.

All Bluebird Day homes are lovingly cared for with the intention of offering you a world class authentic Bend vacation experience. Locally owned and operated, we provide you with a unique opportunity to experience the magic of Bend like a local.

About Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals

We are a couple of nerdy engineers originally from Texas and New Mexico. Our free time is spent crashing our mountain bikes, walking our dog in the forest, and playing with our young daughter.

We love that Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals is a locally owned and operated property management company, and we appreciate that they have a philosophy about celebrating and preserving Bend culture that is right in alignment with our own. They take amazing care of our home, and will provide you with great service!

Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 2010

Why Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals chose Bend

The ease of access to the outdoors really appealed to us. We moved here in 2007 and have loved every minute of our time here. The small town qualities of Bend lend itself as a perfect place to raise our daughter.

What makes this house unique

This house is situated in an amazing location. The Deschutes River is just steps away. Downtown, the Old Mill, numerous breweries, Les Schwab Amphitheater, bike trails, parks and more are all right out the door!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful 10 days at the River Gem! We loved our morning walks to one of the many coffee shops around town, walking and biking the trails, meeting so many friendly people, and food, Food, FOOD! We can't wait to return!!!!

Great for a couple, close to a lot which was very nice.

  • 3 of 5

The property is nice. Nice kitchen and outdoor space. Would have been great for just two of us. The problem was that my adult Daughter was with us, there is not comfortable sleeping for more than two, and there isn't any privacy. Glass doors on bedroom and people have to walk through the bedroom to the bathroom. The only other issue was there were only 2 hand towels and 2 bath towels. I reserved for three adults, and the property is listed for 4 adults. Again would have been fine for a couple, and for a couple of kids. The loft would work for older children that wouldn't mind an ultra thin futon pad and might think it's a fun adventure. Too dangerous for really little kids. The couch pull out might work for a small child that can avoid the bar in their back. Location was great! PS - we did not take a dog, and prior guests did not clean up after theirs.

Great Home Away From Home in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone from the Management to the Ownership were tremendous and professional to work with, which makes for the best start to a great vacation. Everything was as stated and the home was perfect for our needs. The location is spectacular, close to the River, close to town, close to everything on both sides of the river and we were able to walk everywhere.

I'm a 5-Star Referral for this River Gem!

Charming Bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! It was so cute and perfect for us! It was located in a great spot...near the river and easy walking to downtown. I would definitely come back to this rental! The property rental company was EXCELLENT about keeping in touch with us before and during our stay. It was clean and nicely decorated. My only suggestion would be to put up a shade/curtain over the kitchen window and kitchen door window. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable! :)

Nice cottage for family of 4 close to River, Parks and Shopping

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the centrally located cottage for our family of four & 1 dog. The amenities in the cottage were nice, including tubes for floating the river and bikes-if you needed them. It was great to be able to walk to Drake Park, local breweries (10Barrell & Crux), shopping/dining in Old Mill District and jumping on running trails along the river.

The River Gem vacation home is in a fantastic location at the end of Riverfront Drive with the Deschutes River just across the street and Miller's Landing Park behind the house. Historic Downtown Bend is just a short walk away, the Old Mill District with shops, restaurants and movies is a 5 minute walk along the river. Enjoy a concert at the Les Schwab Amphitheatre just a short walk away. The Bend Ale Trail is also just several blocks from the River Gem! You may also enjoy these fantastic Bend attractions on the cruiser bikes provided. Bend-style!
