Property description

This cozy cedar-shingled, cottage-style house has a private drive and 1 acre lot with 120 ft of frontage along the North Umpqua River. The spacious private yard features a giant sycamore tree, and a cedar deck overlooking the river below and old-growth forest beyond. A great R&R destination, honeymoon hideout, or anniversary getaway. You can spend an entire day in solitude or take day-trips to the ocean, Crater Lake, wineries, and enjoy many other activities and tours nearby.

It is located 1/4 mile from a store (food, gas, fishing licenses and tackle, beer-wine-liquor, post office) and 3 miles from several restaurants. Once you park here you won't need to drive anywhere, unless you want to explore Crater Lake National Park (75 miles), the Umpqua National Forest (10 miles), or the Wild and Scenic Reach of the North Umpqua River and the 75-mile North Umpqua Trail (2 miles).

This part of the river is famous for year-round fly-fishing for steelhead, and whitewater rafting and kayaking. Also for many short trails to beautiful waterfalls. The local town of Glide has a famous Glide Wildflower Show each April, and the Umpqua valley has winery tours year-round.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I've spent years renovating this and two other riverfront houses to share this beautiful piece of the North Umpqua River with other outdoor lovers. I live nearby and will be sure your stay is a pleasant one.

Why the Owner Chose Idleyld Park, Glide, OR, USA:
The North Umpqua is the most beautiful river on Earth, with strong wild fish, invigorating rapids, and gorgeous scenery. The old-growth forest across the river supports abundant wildlife and exudes serenity.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Watch the eagles, ospreys, and otters patrol the river from the deck along the bank high above the water. Fish for wild trout and steelhead right in front of the house, year-round.
