About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 9

Enjoy the very best of old and new at this McKenzie Bridge home, a beautifully restored log cabin with a classic front porch, a sparkling interior, and a wonderful woodland location for exploring the nearby river, hot springs, and hiking trails.

This two-level log cabin sits on a densely wooded property within Willamette National Forest, equidistant from Eugene (52 miles west) and Sisters (50 miles east). Wander one mile up the road to meet up with the McKenzie River Trail; spend your days fishing, kayaking, rafting, and swimming in the river itself; and indulge in daily soaks in the Belknap Hot Springs (six miles east) and the Cougar Hot Springs (13 miles southwest).

Originally built in 1909 and lovingly restored in 2016, the cabin's interior makes thoughtful use of natural wood, exposed brick, and pristine white walls. Prepare meals for a crowd with ease in the full kitchen, where you'll find stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher), abundant cabinetry and counter space, and a large eat-in dining room table.

Pass the morning hours outside on the porch, where you can read the newspaper in a rocking chair or use the free WiFi to plan your next hike. Grab your rods and tackle to spend the day fishing for rainbow trout or Chinook salmon; you'll come home to a private washer/dryer for your clothes, a pellet stove to warm your toes, and a flatscreen cable TV for movie nights in the plush living room.

Come and discover the lush forest beauty of McKenzie Bridge - book your unforgettable stay in Lane County today!

Good Place To Be

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice place to stay if visiting McKenzie River valley destinations. The house is clean and pretty spacious. Big dining table for a crowd. Kitchen stocked with most tools/appliances you need - coffee maker! It is pretty quiet here even though house is only 50 yds off main valley road. <br />

<br />

Sometimes it is hard to decipher bed arrangements in listing. Here it is: 2 ‘master’ rooms on main floor, one with a king, the other a queen. Upstairs are two more rooms, one with a queen and the other with a pair of twin beds. Finally, there is a single bed plopped down in the open area on the landing at top of stairs. There is also a couch in the great room on main. A pair of clean and functional restrooms, one on each floor, round out the arrangements. Overall the house lives plenty big and comfy. Not fancy, but clean and home-like.<br />

<br />

I would give the log cabin 5 stars except for this: the Wifi service is TERRIBLE and with no cell service here, you are really cut off from outside world. If you don’t need these things, great! If you are trying to coordinate arrivals/logistics with multiple people, or attempting to download bike trail info, this is pretty tough to work with. Wifi worked sporadically after midnite and before 7AM. There is also a restaurant 3 miles down river that has Wifi.

Owner's Response: We apologize the WiFi situation made things difficult for this guest. We have tried to better the service, but this is as good as it currently gets in this location. Thank you!

Comfortable, spacious cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Renee's Log House is a nice getaway and an easy launching point for fishing along the McKenzie River and hikes in the Sisters. The cabin itself is rustic but with a modern and well-appointed kitchen, updated baths, comfortable beds and ample (and sometimes needed) extra blankets. <br />

<br />

There's not much that you will walk to - for groceries or hiking - but limited options are close by. The more attractive options - including the McKenzie River trail - will require a slight drive or bike ride along the highway. River access is limited.<br />

<br />

That said, the cabin itself would comfortably sleep 6 without kids, 9-11 with. The furnishings and appliances are well beyond expected. The location is choice.<br />

<br />

Know that the WiFi is limited. If you require high WiFi speeds or reliable connectivity, you'll be disappointed. Of course, if you're trying to get your kiddos to put aside their devices, this could be a plus.

Beautiful, charming, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The house is nestled in the trees with easy river access. The decor is beautiful with original floors, a modern kitchen, and AMAZINGLY comfortable beds. A group of us stayed comfortably in the house for the weekend and we all sat comfortably around the kitchen table for meals and games. A perfect weekend!
