Property description

Blue Heaven Cabin is located in Vida, Oregon. The cottage is picturesquely nestled along the shore of the McKenzie River, and is decorated in a rustic yet elegant style. The cottage was built in the early 1940’s, and has a grace and charm reminiscent of a more gentle era. While we have maintained the rustic touches of that time, we have also incorporated some modern conveniences.

Cozy Accommodations
The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, charcoal grill, fireplace in the living room, full bathroom (including tub and shower) and central heat. Beautifully refinished original fir floors. It features windows on the entire river side-affording an unparalleled view of the white water below. French doors open from the living room onto a spacious private deck directly over the water. We invite you to relax and refresh in the cool, green Willamette National Forest-and even throw in your fishing line. If you keep a sharp eye out, you may even see Osprey and Eagles.

The one bedroom can sleep up to 6 people comfortably, with a king bed in the bedroom, a queen sleeper sofa in the great room, a queen raised air bed and a twin fold out bed. We include most everything to make your stay convenient and enjoyable—from dishes to linens and towels. All you will need to bring is your clothes, food, and yourselves... but don't forget to pack your fishing tackle!

Hoo Doo Ski Resort

The McKenzie is well known for its' pristine beauty and fly fishing. You can fly fish along a strip of river within walking distance or fish for trout right off the deck. Many hiking and bike trails close by. Enjoy one of the hot springs located nearby. Take a rafting excursion, view the covered bridges, or take a drive on one of the many scenic routes. Hike the waterfalls. Watch the eagles and osprey fish the river right from your deck. Relax and wavy at the rafters and boaters floating by. Here are a few of our recommendations:

Terwilliger Hot Springs (Also known as Cougar Hot Springs) is one of those places that you hate to tell others about. You like it so much that you want to keep it a secret from the rest of the world. Simply put, this is a magical spot hidden within this super-natural forest. Terwilliger Hot Springs are a fantastic place to soak away anxiety and stress that you may have brought with you from the city. It is also a great place to relax after a long hike, mountain bike ride or a day of skiing at Hoodoo.The h ot springs emerge from a small cave (you can climb into it) and flows out into 5 cascading pools. As the water flows down into the lower pools the temperature gets a little cooler.

Hours: Open year round from dawn to dusk.

Directions:

As you pass the reservoir on your left take a moment to enjoy the sweeping views. You should see a small shack/kiosk on the right and a parking area on the left. Terwilliger Hot Springs is about 15 minutes from the cottage.

Park in the lot and walk on the path to the kiosk. There is a $6 per person day use fee.

Other Hot Springs

*For nice hot springs experience without fear of encountering naked people visit Belknap Hot Springs. It is not far away, it is further east up Hwy 126 between McKenzie Bridge and the Ranger Station. Day use fee $10-15. Hot springs are piped into a swimming pool. Indoor changing rooms. This is approximately 20 minutes from the cottage

HooDoo Ski Bowl:

Great family friendly ski area features a new lodge, groomed trails and lift tickets under $50 Hoodoo Ski Area sits on the summit of Oregon’s Santiam Pass and is Oregon’s most centrally located destination for winter sports enthusiasts. Just 45 minutes from the cottage, Hoodoo Ski Area offers more than 800 acres of terrain, 34 runs, five lifts and one of the largest tubing parks in the West. Founded in 1938, Hoodoo is Central Oregon’s original ski area and your destination for family-friendly fun in your backyard! The ski slopes are on a big, rounded butte, with lots of wide open terrain. So whether you prefer the deep and challenging powder of Hoodoo’s backside or the finely groomed runs of the front side, the majesty of Hoodoo’s location and fun of Hoodoo’s night skiing will bring you back again and again.

McKenzie River Waterfall Loop Trail

Sahalie Falls and Koosah Falls in one awesome hiking experience.

Length: 3 miles

Elevation: Trail is at 2800 ft. elevation.

Season: Spring to Fall

Usage: Heavy

Difficulty: Moderate

Water: Potable water available at Ice Cap Campground.

How to get there: From the cottage take Highway 126 east approximately 32 miles to the parking areas of Sahalie Falls and Koosah Falls Viewpoints.

Trail Description: This trail is part of the McKenzie River National Recreation Trail. It follows the McKenzie River as it flows over two spectacular waterfalls and cascades into whitewater.

Other Area Waterfalls

A vast number of rivers and streams are birthed from the depths of central Oregon’s majestic Cascade Mountains. These many rivers create a dazzling display of water features throughout this chain of volcanic mountains. These water features often are displayed as spectacular waterfalls.

Koosah Falls / Sahalie Falls

Tamolitch Falls (aka Tamolitch Blue Pool)

Proxy Falls

Rainbow Falls

Tamolitch Falls-Tamolitch Blue Pool

Once a majestic waterfall, the McKenzie River has changed course and gone underground a few miles up stream. The river only flows over the falls a few times a year, the rest if the time the water emerges from the rocks underwater in the basin of waterfall pool.

Tamolitch Blue Pool - Tamolitch FallsThis is a unique site. While it is rare to see a large waterfall ledge completely dry, the color and composition of the pool is also unique.

One of the first things you’ll notice is the color of the water. The topaz blue color of the water is almost iridescent – like a blue anti-freeze. The water is so clear that is seems to be only about 5 ft deep – yet closer inspection will reveal that in many spots its over 30 ft deep. So pure in fact that you’d swear the water wasn’t moving – yet at the end of this glass like pond – a volume of water rushes out as the McKenzie River is reborn. I did this hike for the first time last summer. The photos you see are real. The water is the most amazing color.

Tokatee Golf Club is just 10 miles away with views of the Three Sisters Mountains.
