  • 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!"

  • Serene place right near trailhead

    "Situated in a very quiet neighborhood, this is the perfect peaceful getaway. It's a couple blocks from a Trailhead of the Ridgeline Trail, which is gorgeous. The host was very gracious! It was a great stay. I recommend this place."

  • Awesome Experience!!

    "The house was perfect for our family and Christina was super friendly and helpful. Everything was perfect! The house is bigger than we expected with every comfort of home. We all loved the layout. And Very Quiet which I Loved! The neighborhood and area are also great. This was our first time renting a vacation house and I'll never stay in a hotel again! :)"

  • Beautiful Home!

    "I have just concluded my second stay at this wonderful home. I can't say enough good things about it. It is spotless, as well appointed as my own home, comfortable and so inviting I would be tempted to sneak away for a long weekend in Eugene without kids and spouse! We have stayed here on a UO football weekend and recently for a long weekend while visiting our daughter. I will be returning in the fall for my 3rd visit. The house is large enough to have your college student stay with you for a break from their dorm, apartment or fraternity/sorority. The kitchen is a dream to cook in and everything is within walking distance. My daughter has given the house a great compliment, "When you stay here it is like going home, without going home." When you arrive there is fresh coffee, organic 1/2 and 1/2 and usually a local bread for morning toast. All wonderful so you don't have to worry about a think other than getting up in the morning and starting your day. I give this home the highest recommendation. We are frequent VRBO customers and this home tops the list of my experiences....it has nudged out a Paris apartment for the top spot!"
