Property description

This 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is ideal for exploring the gorgeous, fun-filled Willamette Valley and McKenzie River Scenic Route!! Then, come back to a home so cozy and peaceful you would not want to leave except it is also about 75 yards above the McKenzie River! The elevated position of the home over the river offers a fantastic view of both the river and what is called the 'pond' from the spacious covered deck. The pond is a quiet inlet of the river with a beach and swimming area. The river attracts osprey, herons, egrets, ducks, geese, otters and beavers, which can be seen frequently.

During the winter and spring months, the Berry Patch Vacation Rental is the perfect artist's retreat - complete a series of paintings on the private deck overlooking the McKenzie River or on those periods of dry weather - setting up the easel on the river bank or backyard of the main house. Or cozy up and storm watch, enjoying the quiet solitude of the nights.
For the more adventurous; try HooDoo Skiing, snowshoeing, or the hot springs (primative and developed.) Bring your books or hunker down for table game marathons. For authors; finish that novel in the quietness of a rain forest. Although the river is too high for water sports at this time of year, to see the raging river in the winter is quite an exciting experience.

From May on, there is easy (a rugged path for the youngsters and a dirt road for those who need it) river access for fishing, kayaking, rafting, and swimming. Fishing is excellent from the beach and rocks below the house. The house is at the end of a private lane nestled within 5 acres of blueberry bushes. Blueberries ripen in July and are available through August.

There is wireless Internet and Roku streaming for endless movies, games, music, and more. There is no TV reception. For those who love board games, there is a whole closet full of them.The living room, balcony, and Master Bedroom all have incredible views of the river. There is a large, covered balcony (or deck) for outside meals, wildlife viewing, reading or napping. The master bedroom has a king size bed, beautiful furniture and view of the river. The second bedroom upstairs has two twin beds. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed, fireplace (the upstairs fireplace is non-functional), TV, and private bathroom. The kitchen includes large refrigerator and freezer, electric stove and oven, dishwasher, and all you need to cook gourmet meals.

Only half and hour from Eugene/Springfield and 65 miles West of Hoodoo ski area, The Berry Patch is ideally located for a winter or summer vacation. Tokatee Golf Course (nationally ranked) is about 25 miles from the house. Belknap Hot Springs is 30 minutes away, and endless miles of roads and wilderness to explore just outside your door.

  • This rustic, fifth generation vacation home sits on five acres of blueberries, so you are completely buffered from the outside world. They are tended to year round by staff and ripen in July and August. Winter is very quiet, spring is a slow waking of the bushes, summer is all about the blues and the river, and autumn is a buttoning up time. All are beautiful....moreless

Owner info

About the owner: The Berry Patch was originally purchased by J.H. P. Howard and has since been passed on to his children and grandchildren. This beautiful slice of heaven on Greenwood Dr., just one-mile east of the tiny town of Leaburg, is now being shared with the lucky ones who discover it.

Why the Owner Chose McKenzie River:
This home is available for long term rental from September through as late as June. However, sometimes it is available as a vacation rental, the calendar reflecting which.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is no better place to hang out on the McKenzie River. The waters can be swift and rough elsewhere on the river, but in front of the Berry Patch house, it slows and widens.
