"This place is rightfully called stones throw"

by Kuber S


This place is rightfully called stones throw. It was walking distance from the best breweries, cafes and parks in town. We loved the way the house is decorated and Diana’s design sensibilities. She was quick to respond when we were unable to open the hot tub. All in all it was a great find and we’ll be back soon!

"found the place to be perfect for our needs"

by Elysia G


We were just there for a short stay while we were in town for a wedding, but found the place to be perfect for our needs. It was super walkable, spacious enough for our needs, and had lots of activities around the house (ping pong, jacuzzi, board games, etc.). We especially appreciated the complimentary coffee, which was surprisingly tasty! And Diana was very communicative and helpful! Checking in and out was a breeze. Thank you!

"We would definately rent again."

by Zandi C


Rented this home for business lodging for my team. They were very happy with the home and I was very happy with the host. We would definately rent again.

"had a great weekend in Diana's house"

by Gemma B


Our group had a great weekend in Diana's house. The home was well stocked for everything we needed, including cooking a few big meals. The location is great, with several food/drink options and the river within a few minute walk. We did have a small issue of the hot tub not being preheated when we arrived, but Diana was quick to respond when we reached out and we were able to get it addressed.

"Great spot!"

Great spot! It was close to brewery’s and coffee.

by Sera H


I had an amazing stay here! Honestly, I don't think I've ever been in a home so clean. The house was in a great neighborhood, walking distance to a number of cafes and bars, and downtown (if you can brave the cold). Also- the salt water hot tub was AMAZING.

"Beautiful spot"

Beautiful spot - hope to visit again!

"ping pong table & hot tub"

by Jacquelyn P


Great location walkable to awesome restaurants and downtown. My boys loved the ping pong table in the garage & hot tub.

Response to messages was very fast.

Place is comfortable and clean.

Lock on hot tub sticks so you have to give it a strong yank to release the lock.

"the hot tub was a dream, and the location was perfect"

by Cd


A lovely house in a wonderful location! It had everything we needed, the hot tub was a dream, and the location was perfect - we managed to walk to and from the river to float, and it’s a short (and pretty, through Drake park) walk to downtown. The hosts were responsive and helpful

Diana’s place is awesome! Very near restaurants and bars, right in the heart of Bend, it was our first time in the city and definitely will be back!

by Julia Buckley


Great house and location. We loved being able to walk to shops and pubs, and to the 4th of July Pet Parade. Very fun!

"place was charming"

by Yolaine Johanson


Our stay in Bend was lovely and this was partly due to the fact that our BnB was so great! It was a perfect location for walking to the river and to eateries. Diana was a fantastic host and was in contact with us to check in if everything was ok. The kitchen was fully equipped and I was able to easily cook full meals for my family. The character of the place was charming. We really enjoyed our stay and the hosts could not even be better. Thanks, we'll definitely stay there again!

"went above what's usually provided at a rental."

by Whitney Sangiacomo


This house was in a great location for us. Walkable to restaurants and playgrounds for our kids. Everything was very clean and the amenities went above what's usually provided at a rental. The hosts were also very easy to communicate with.

"quiet neighborhood"

by Michael Oakley


Comfortable house in a quiet neighborhood, perfect for a peaceful Bend stay. Great location for walking to the river or finding a quick meal nearby. We enjoyed the ping pong table one rainy evening. Note: 5-star tacos are 3 blocks away.

"breakfast coffee provided was so delicious"

by Michelle Weiss


My husband and I stayed here while visiting my daughter. The home was adorable and in a wonderful location close to many restaurants. The breakfast coffee provided was so delicious, I went and bought a bag to take home. I loved all the little decorating touches that flowed so nicely. We had fun playing ping pong, but didn't get to use the hot tub. Next time in Bend, I will certainly try to rent here again.

"Hosts were very communicative and kind all along the way"

Really great home in a great, walkable location. Comfy beds, cozy fireplace, and great patio/hot tub area. Hosts were very communicative and kind all along the way. Highly recommended!

"Awesome location!"

"better location for our group"

by Margaret Collins


Wow couldn't have had a better location for our group:
Close to the mountain for the skiers in our group ( a short drive)
Close to downtown for the shoppers (a easy walk)
Close to restaurants, breweries, coffee shops ( some just around the block)
And the house was immaculate,
Stylish, and cozy.
The host kept in contact with texts letting us know how to get in, how to check in and out, and to let us know they were available if needed
Can't wait to stay here again

"Nicely decorated home!"

by Patrick Gowey


Nicely decorated but not as clean and comfortable as we would have liked. One of the bathroom sinks was clogged and the full/queen bed was very squeaky.

"super comfortable and very well put together"

by Walt & Christy Nance


Its hard to find this kind of style and quality in a stay, but these folks have knocked it out of the park. And to top it off they were excellent with all our communications. We walked into old town from here which was a comfortable jaunt in tennys. Hope you get the chance to stay here too!

"The cottage location could not be better!!"

by Casey


What a great 2 week stay! The cottage location could not be better - less than a 5 minute walk to multiple breweries, restaurants, coffee shops, and the river! The kitchen was stocked better than any place I've ever stayed and had everything we needed. The garage was also an unexpected nice touch to store bikes and other outdoor toys we brought to enjoy the trails in Bend. The hosts were incredibly responsive and helpful. I would highly recommend this cottage for your next stay in Bend!

"Stellar Trip"

by Stephen


We had a stellar trip. A Stones Throw manager was very communicative, clear and provided a great stay for us. Linens were nice too. We appreciated the details and extra mile they went to ensure we enjoyed our vacation. We would return. The prices in Bend are high in peak season and these were no different but competitive. All in all a 5 star experience.

"It's my secret..."

by Mitch


I'd love to tell you about the location of Branch & Thistle, and the 1/2 block walk to 10 Barrel, or 3/4 block walk to Ariana... but I'm keeping it a secret. If I told about the 20 minute walk to downtown, the hot tub, fully stocked kitchen and 3 bedrooms, you might decide to stay there sometime when I want to... so I'm keeping it to myself. We enjoyed playing ping pong and streaming HULU, but I'm not telling... so you'll have to find out on your own because it's my secret.

by Chris and Paula


What a cool spot! We came for a Birthday weekend and some great skiing.The house was just what we wanted. Hot tub, fun decorations and felt like home. We can't wait to visit again soon.

"Had A Great Time. Definitely Stay Again!"

by Ariel


We stayed here for a birthday weekend getaway and had a great time. The hot tub and fireplace are lovely wintertime amenities. The home is walkable to restaurants, convenience stores and breweries on the West Side of Bend and a super short car ride to the downtown area. The hosts were very responsive to a couple of questions we had, and they had written a nice guide to the local area as part of the welcome binder in the home. We would definitely stay here again!

"Totally Felt Like Home"

by Chris and Paula


What a cool spot! We came for a long birthday weekend and two awesome days of skiing! This house was just what we wanted; hot tub, fun decorations and totally felt like a house. Walks to Brother John's and 10 Barrel were much needed after hours on the Mountain. Thanks for providing such a great place- we'll definitely be back!

"Clean and Cute"

by Chelsey


Took a girls trip to Oregon for the first time. The house was close to everything and very well equipped. Clean and cute, we felt very at home with everything we needed. We even got to make Christmas cookies! The hot tub was a hit with everyone and so convenient after a day in the snow.

"The Perfect Winter Rental!"

by John


The Perfect Winter Rental ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Branch + Thistle was great! The rental company was easy to work with. They kept in touch with us through email and text from the moment we reserved all the way through the end of our stay to make sure things were OK. The house is very warm and inviting and in the perfect westside location for easy access to great breweries and restaurants nearby. The place was well stocked with all kitchen and bathroom necessities we needed. The fireplace was great to warm up next to on the cold nights and the hot tub was perfect after a day of skiing. We will definitely come back again.
