"Awesome! We have stayed here three years in a row now! We absolutely love the home! It is spacious, comfortable, and accommodates everyone in our group. We love the high end finishes! We are proud to say that we are proficient in operating the cook top and the coffee maker now and feel so proud of ourselves!!!"

"My daughter, son-in-law, and five year-old granddaughter live a world away in Belgium; we do not see each other often enough! This year I decided to bring them here. We needed time together and they needed time away from their very busy lives, to unwind and recharge, but also to experience the west coast because they had never been here.
The River Dream was the perfect solution. Completely spacious inside in a stunning setting on the McKenzie River outside, we had the perfect visit except that a week was too short.
The house is a home; it is laid out perfectly with a master suite on one end on the first floor overlooking the river and my granddaughters bedroom on the other end. Upstairs was yet another beautiful suite with a lounge and work area off of it overlooking the incredible living room and river from a balcony. Upstairs was like having a separate house!
The decor is soft and the finishes very Zen. The house has every amenity imaginable and more than having every amenity, each amenity is state-of-the art, from the sound system and entertainment center, wi-fi, and even every appliance that is first-rate and barely makes a sound. Perhaps our favorite was the hot tub on the deck overlooking the river, but it is hard to choose a favorite.
The location, outside of being a beautiful riverside home on the McKenzie, is but a short and gorgeous drive to Eugene or, heading east on the McKenzie Highway, 5 minutes from an incredible fish hatchery, farther on a fascinating Civil War/American Indian Museum, and still farther the breath-taking Sahailie Falls (translate from Chinook: "Heaven").
The River Dream became our base: to stay in or to venture out. We went to the Aquarium in Newport and up to Depoe Bay to whale watch, leaving plenty of time for a relaxing evening. Another day it was Wildlife Safari near Bend--another full day with plenty of time to return and relax. Or just a day in Eugene at the Science Factory and Saturday Market.
Above all, the owners are extraordinary and Marilyn was the exquisite Hostess who met us and showed us every feature of the house and welcomed us as if to our new home.
Anyone seeking an exceptional experience will have one staying here!

"This house is incredible in every way! The view, the cleanliness, the fact that they have a fully stocked kitchen so cooking is EASY, complete laundry facilities with detergent included. They just made our visit so easy that we could relax and completely enjoy our hikes. They even left recommendations for nearby hikes which we tried and were glad we did. We especially loved the layout of the house and the two porches. It is a perfect house for couples traveling together who want a little space apart and then some communal space. The view from the dining room is killer and you may never want to go home."

"Had a lovely time at the Lewisburg cottage once again. Very well appointed, with everything you need. So much better than a hotel. A perfect place to stay and even entertain a few people. We'll definitely be back."
