Thanks to property care taker , they are very nice people to make you conformable about the house and surroundings.
Great river cabin getaway
This cabin is beautiful, clean and in a beautiful setting. The owners and the manager were so nice and very responsive to any questions. They allowed us to walk and explore the whole property which was awesome for our family. Our daughters loved petting the horses that came right up to the fence to greet us. The porch was great to hangout on and we had fun playing horseshoes. We didn’t realize that the cabin was connected by the carport to the managers cabin but we still had plenty of privacy. There are no windows facing their cabin so you would never know they are there. I would highly recommend this property!
Super log cabin with all the comforts of home
We really enjoyed our stay in the Lonesome Duck cabin. The owners and managers lived nearby and were very friendly and responsive. The cabin lies along a great trout fishing river and includes, canoes, kayaks, etc. We had great fun kayaking up the river and seeing bald eagles and turtles. The ranch is very well maintained and had several trails throughout. There is a little bit of noise from the nearby highway and train tracks but it was hardly noticeable. We loved the hammock and the horseshoes too.
Thanks Nancy---look forward to your next trip North. Best Regards, Steve H
Tranquil, lovely, cozy, and warm
I know this lovely cabin is a fisherman's paradise in summer, but don't discount its charms in the winter months! The bird watching is outstanding, the river flows by at your very doorstep, the wood-burning stove creates a warm and cozy retreat from all your cares, and Crater Lake (which should not be missed in all the majesty of its snowy surroundings) is a relatively short drive away; borrow a pair of the complementary snowshoes and head up there for a hike. The bedrooms are incredibly charming and homey, with comfortable beds. The hosts and owners will greet you warmly and happily provide you with whatever you need to make your stay perfect. I have visited Lonesome Duck for four years in a row now. It is one of my winter priorities, and I love every second. Looking forward to many years to come!
We had 7 adults (2 couples, 3 individuals) and we were so comfy and cozy in this wonderful home. The owners were fabulous -- friendly and helpful. We 100% recommend you stay here.
Kathy, thanks a bunch for the review.....so pleased that you stayed with us and had such a great time. Steve & Debbie/Marshal & Suzie
Wonderful Woodsy Retreat
We brought our family from Denmark down to Southern Oregon mostly to visit Crater Lake. We had never stayed in that area so we used HomeAway to find a location that would sleep six of us. Lonesome Duck Ranch was the perfect location for a restful stay along the river. Some of us rested and enjoyed the hammock while others of us took long walks along the railroad and enjoyed fishing in the river. It was the perfect place to show our Danish family some rustic Americana. Steve and Debbie were very accomodating and made us feel right at home.
Other Activities: National Park, Kayaking, Snowboarding, Snowmobiling, Rock Climbing, Golf: Get in a round of golf on the Arnold Palmer course at the Running Y (voted one of the best 100 public courses).
