Recent McKenzie River reviews

  • Oregon Adventure

    "Thank you for sharing your house with us as we were introduced to the splendor of Oregon. The house was a perfect "home base" for us as we rested between trips to wineries, Crater Lake, and the beautiful Oregon coast. Isn't it funny how catching a fish can turn a grown man into a giddy child again? And we observed that repeated many times, so there will be no need to make up fish stories to share. Your instructions and suggestions offered were very helpful. We will pack our music DVD's next trip - had to sing our own James Taylor music, but the birds (and fish) didn't seem to mind too much! We will remember this trip with pleasure and appreciate your hospitality."

  • Nice interior, responsive hosts during the booking process.

    "My husband and I stayed at the cabin for a winter weekend getaway. Everything was nicely appointed inside - kitchen, linens, etc. The view of the river was fantastic with a wonderful screened porch that seems like it would be perfect during the warm summer months. Great proximity to Mckenzie River Trail system. A little too close to the road for me but with cold temps, the windows were shut and we didn't hear much noise. We did have one issue that wasn't fully resolved by owner upon departure."

  • A year round get-away location

    "Over the past 40 years my family has stayed in all three of the cabins at different times and once inhabited all of them at the same time for a family reunion. We love the sound of the river flowing over the rapids at night. The cabins have all been upgraded several times since we first stayed there in the 1970's. They are beautiful inside and out and fully equipped. Recently three of us stayed in the small cabin and I found the bed to be very comfortable and warm. Thank you Dick and Doris for continuing your family's heritage of providing rest for the weary bones and a starting out place for adventures in the beautiful mountains and fun on the river."

  • 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!"
