by Review from Airbnb Guest #127527


We absolutely loved everything about this house. Fantastic location including close restaurants and a short walk to downtown. The decorations in the house made it feel comfortable and cozy. A lot of space so that you didn’t feel like you were on top of each other. All the amenities were available throughout, especially in the kitchen which made eating in much easier.

"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!

Girls trip. We had everything we needed. Loved the small things like plenty of coasters, some coffee for the first morning, baskets & trays for belongings at the bedsides, plenty of towels, so many extra throw blankets, warm & cozy, but also lots of natural light. We were able to walk to everything. The hot tub is nice as well. This is a really nice place to stay in Bend.

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.

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!

"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.
