One of our favorite West Coast destinations is Bend, Oregon — land of amazing scenery, low humidity thanks to the high elevation, and year-round recreational opportunities including elbow bends at the 14 breweries we found there!
On last summer’s trip out west, we also discovered Cottage Bend Vacation Rentals designed by Sarah Phipps of Sarah Phipps Design.

Gina and her growing family have been living in their Fort Collins, Colorado, home for seven years. Built in 1907, the 1300-square-foot home was beginning to feel cramped so Gina decided to reinvent her historic home to give it a more modern feel while still retaining its vintage charm.
“We decided to add a second story for kids’ rooms and a bathroom, and gut the entire first floor so we could have more living space,” Gina says. “We wanted more open space instead of the many small rooms of our modest Victorian.” With the help of the design/build team from High Craft Builders, the couple added three bedrooms and a bath, changed the first...
