"We stayed here with our family of three as an early birthday getaway for my husband. The fishing in front of the house was so-so, but we heard that the river was about to be stocked so it sounds like we just missed the big ones by a few days. No matter, he still enjoyed being out in the river for hours each day and even helped our six year old land one! The home is clean and well maintained, as are the grounds. The river access was very easy and we waded in the water every day, skipping rocks. (it was unseasonably warm for September!)
The owner is understandably concerned about the number of stairs that lead from the house to the various decks and to the river, which is why this listing says "no young children". Don't be put off by that. If you have toddlers this may not be for you, but our six year old had a blast! The stairs are very solid, with appropriate railings. Also note that there are two bedrooms on two floors. So, if you have a kiddo with night-time needs this could be a concern.
We met a few of the neighbors during our stay, very nice! The house was also very quiet inside, despite the proximity to the road and bridge. And, there were a lot of games available to play when it got too dark to fish.
This weekend was a much needed family getaway and we would not hesitate to return. Many thanks for sharing this great spot!"

"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."

"Just wrapped up a week of perfect weather, perfect fishing and first and foremost all in a perfect setting! Couldn't ask for more, the location is one of the best, the house layout works well for everyone in the family, one floor, master suite large and welcoming etc. Easy to get around for the older folks and our blind Basset Hound. Kitchen has everything we need and the new grill/smoker is even bigger than the Traeger it replaced! If it sounds like we have been here before, we have (several times) and hopefully will be back many, many more! It get's harder every time to write something different.. We did have a "flock" of Turkeys visit us one morning, that was a first!! Caught lots of trout, lost two Steelhead, one on my new Spey rod (have to blame something). The sunsets were amazing and the full moon was something to behold! I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone....
Now back at work basking in the glow of memories... Thank you yet once again Charles and family for sharing this special place!"

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."
