Recent McKenzie River reviews

  • Lovely cabin right by the river

    "Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids) stayed at this quaint little cabin for one weekend. We loved it! The cabin is a “breath of fresh air.” The McKenzie river flowing by outside is just gorgeous, it really does “sing.” The water is so clear, and when we were there had shades of a lovely turquoise color. The kitchen is small, but has all the supplies you need to cook your own meals. There aren’t any major grocery stores nearby so you might want to stock up in the nearest big city before you head out. There is a small grocery store not far away but it has really limited options. There is a nearby restaurant that we did try out. The staff at the restaurant are really friendly and the food portions are generous. The food itself was ok but nothing to rave about, and we chose not to eat there again. We loved the wraparound deck. . .so nice. In the mornings, I would sit outside and watch the river flow by. We spent most of our time there fishing in nearby rivers and lakes, and hiking. Sahalee Falls is a must! It is truly one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever seen. We also visited Sisters briefly. A cute little town that is worth a stop. Wi-Fi was fairly decent, for those who can’t quite let go of their electronics. My eldest was happy he could surf his iPad when we were in the cottage. This cottage is one of several and they are much closer together than it appears in the photographs, but we never felt crowded and it was quiet. The cottage is clean and also has a small library of DVDs, which I thought was a nice touch. Overall, it was a great trip and a great way to finish off the summer before the kids headed back to school. I’d recommend staying here."

  • 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."

  • Wonderful Getaway

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the McKenzie River. This was the first time we rented through VRBO and our experience was truly amazing. This was not just a house but a true HOME!!!!! Janet and John's home was not only well located but was beautiful inside and outside and equipped with everything you would need for a relaxing vacation. My husband was able to catch fish every day and I was able to kick back and relax on the wonderful and spacious deck area. The weather was incredibly beautiful. When we return to this area we will definitely chose this home again."

  • 50th birthday weekend

    "We had such a great time in the lodge! All 12 of us women to celebrate our baby sister's 50th birthday. Jean was wonderful and couldn't have been more accommodating. The house was nicely furnished with everything we need and plenty of space. But still had such a cozy feel to it. We all loved it and wished we could have stayed longer. My only request would be to change the lighting in the kitchen to make it brighter without having to turn the fan on. Plenty of glassware, dishes and pots and pans. The view and outdoor seating was fabulous! Hope to go again sometime. So close to Eugene too! Loved it! ALSO: It was very clean!!"
