  • Bird's Eye on Relaxation

    "Back home it was 98 degrees. We wanted a cool mountain/forest getaway. This A-Frame was perfectly cool. A forest breeze came through the screen door on the front and swept through the screen door on the back deck. We loved the hot tub and beautiful view of the forest all around. The loft bed was so nice and the viewing windows we're reflect for viewing nature. I walked for 7 minutes to the best BBQ restraunt and another 7 minutes to easy access to trails along the Zigzag River. Saw salmon spawning and caught (and released) red-side steelhead. We also enjoyed a couple of hikes into the Wildwood Recreation Area."

  • Evergreen House

    "I think we'll plan to stay here again. Comfortable accommodations, with very attentive owner. Lack of bathrooms was not a problem for our party of 10 as each was setup with an additional sink."

  • Great location and you can't beat the view!

    "We rented this property for a company staff retreat and it was a complete success. The house is large enough for multiple people to enjoy the space and all find a place to comfortably sleep. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook some great meals. Overall, the location and view are by far the best. Because it's on a pear orchard, the house is extremely private and separated from the neighbors. The views out of every window are incredible! It was cloudy during our stay so we couldn't see the mountains but that didn't hide the lovely fall colors on all of the surrounding trees. With the hot tub and massive fire place in the living room, this was the perfect place to work and relax. I hope I have the opportunity to stay here again in the near future!"

  • Cozy & Comfortable Chalet in the mountains

    "Our family of four enjoyed every minute we spent at this Chalet over a long weekend. It is beautifully decorated with a swiss mountain village flair and so clean, cozy and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with all the cooking necessities as well as everything you need to set a beautiful table and serve a yummy meal. The kids loved the bunk room and all the games that were available. There were plenty of towels for trips to the pool. We loved it and plan to return!"
