"My group of 3 had a great time at Lisa's condo in Portland. We were provided a queen air mattress at our request, and this will now be available for future guests (it's self-inflating and very comfortable!). The location is beautiful as it sits right by the river. We spent almost every late evening outside by the fire pit with a few beers. The location is great for walking almost anywhere in Northern Portland. We needed a car for a ski trip, so the free covered parking spot was very appreciated and very close to the condo. A couple of my local friends stopped by for a few drinks, and they were very impressed with the digs. I highly recommend staying here! Our hosts were very accessible via email, and all instructions were very minimal and straightforward."

"Warm welcome by proprety manager. Appartment was very clean. It is well located (a few footsteps away from Toro Bravo and Ox restaurants, very well rated) and in a quiet neighbourhood. Easy to park and to commute by public transportation."

"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!"

"Up to OSU for daughter's graduation; arrived late at night (after midnight-delayed flight): the lighting was right, welcome info. envelope & perfect temperature setting. My two daughters loved coming over for 'chill-out time'. Great host & hostess interactions when we crossed paths on the driveway; daughters even engaged with them. I told the hosts that it was a shame that we just discovered them when my daughter was graduating- my daughter has a new option when she goes up for alumni events."
