  • great option for your stay in beautiful Carlton

    "My father and I stayed at this house during our two night visit to Carlton. The house was as advertised, and though we didn't try every feature, everything that we used worked great, including the internet. We would stay here again. A couple of things to note - make sure you bring your own shampoo/conditioner, and if you are an extremely light sleeper, you might want to bring ear plugs as it is on a fairly busy road (as are nearly all of the possible places to stay in Carlton)."

  • Unplug, reconnect and recharge

    "This hidden gem exceeded all of our expectations. My wife and I wanted a place to unplug, reconnect, and recharge. We made our reservations in the summer and spent the rest of the year looking forward to the trip. It started with a forecast of inches of rain (okay by us) and a call from the owner letting us know about the hot water pump problems the previous reviewer noted. We received regular updates during our drive on the status of the repairs, and by the time we arrived, the problem had thankfully been resolved. The owner noted that she was recovering from surgery. Perhaps that was a factor in the previous reviewer's experience? In any case, we arrived just before dark and found the cabin to be as described - nestled in the woods on the banks of the McKenzie and delightfully secluded. The hot tub had already been filled and was just the right temperature upon our arrival. This is not your ordinary hot tub! The cedar tub is situated in woods, perched above a tributary stream and overlooking the river. You reach the tub from the cabin by descending a short flagstone-paved path and crossing a cute bridge over the tributary. Robes were provided to make the trip out and back more comfortable. Inside, we enjoyed the cabin's unique architecture, thoughtfully-placed windows, french doors, and ample amenities. The cabin was clean and the care taken by previous renters was clear. The heat - all three forms of it - was more than ample. Beware the heated floors... my wife is now convinced that we need to install heat in our own floors! The television is small by modern standards and not well-placed for viewing from the couches, but it is perfectly adequate for watching a movie in the evening (there is a DVD player) and doesn't detract from the overall experience in the way that a modern large-screen TV might. This is a place to snuggle up and read by the wood stove, sip a glass of wine together on the deck, contemplate the passing river, and unwind in the hot mineral waters. In the warmer, dryer months this would make a great home base for exploring the many outdoor attractions of the McKenzie River, McKenzie Pass, and Santiam Pass. Of the cabins and B&Bs my wife and I have explored in Oregon thus far, this one is our favorite. It offers indulgent amenities without pretentious luxury or commercialism. We'll be back!"

  • lovely place to stay

    "If you are staying in the Newberg area, the house is conveniently located. Easy drive to other towns in the area. The house is charming, 100 years old, loved the family photos of many generations. It accommodates 6 or even more people, or you can have lots of privacy if there are just a few of you. Well equipped kitchen, laundry, and 3 bedrooms. Roll away bed came in handy for my nephew who was an unexpected guest. There are only 2 bathrooms, but that worked fine for our group of 4. There's a hot too. The owner is wonderful and very helpful."

  • Oregon Wedding

    "Review written by Carrie Conrad (Michael's wife) My husband was able to fly out ahead of myself and my parents for our daughter's wedding in Springfield. So he was absolutely correct in telling me it would be perfect when we arrived 7 days later. First, the driveway is surrounded by huge trees nearly cathedral-like in the way they tower above. Awesome. The inside was not disappointing at all. Nicely spaced bedrooms, one with private bath, and great gathering area with chairs and couch that are on rollers to shift into the desired seating arrangements. Plush carpet felt wonderful on my bare feet and kept early morning risers creeping quiet. All the kitchen appliances one would want: stove with large oven, microwave, full size refrigerator, toaster, etc. Never turned on the TV once ... we were too entranced by the full length deck off the back. That quickly became our reading, eating, grilling, talking, drinking coffee, joking, and watching a fisherman catch a huge 3 foot long steelhead area! My 83 year old dad was thrilled to see the struggle and successful catch and gave the fisherman a round of applause. We walked only a few yards to the boat launch each day, where we saw multiple fish breach like whales out of the water and make huge splashes around us. Must have been pretty big salmon or steelhead. Loved going to sit on the stairs leading to the river from the house with my coffee just soaking in the sun. Nearly 90 degrees each day. And the house was kept cool everyday just by shutting up the place after letting the cooler air in at nighttime. Very much shaded, so very comfortable even in the heat of the afternoon. Boy did that deck get used! Plenty of towels and bedding and use of washer and dryer made things much simpler (less packing). I definitely look forward to returning, possibly when our daughter has a baby? Thanks for all the great memories and comfort of your home."
