Property description

Come stay in our private cabin on the edge of the National Forest! Soak at Belknap or Cougar Hot Springs, or take advantage of HooDoo skiing specials... Located about 50 miles east of Eugene, on a clean mountain stream; near waterfalls, swimming holes, whitewater rafting, hiking, skiing, or golf. The newly protected "Finn Rock Reach", part of the McKenzie River Trust, is just a mile away across the Finn Rock/Quartz Creek Bridge with acres of (unimproved) hiking areas. Float the world-famous McKenzie River, and fish in its sparkling clean waters; after a day of exploring the area, return to our cozy cabin in the woods for a quiet evening on the large deck overlooking the lush Pacific rainforest. Sleeps up to 10, with a large deck, full kitchen, dishwasher, wood stove (wood provided). Daily or weekly rates; self-catering, 2 night minimum. Small group and family-friendly; contact us to reserve your retreat or reunion!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We love to travel, and so we enjoy making our cabin a place for other travelers to relax in a beautiful location. We have both lived in Oregon for over 40 years, and we love to share the incredible beauty of the Cascade Mountains with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Vida, OR, USA:
The Forest House is uniquely located on the edge of the Willamette National Forest, and in a great central location for exploring all the McKenzie Valley area has to offer. We hope our guests will also enjoy the peaceful quiet of the forest, as well as the sounds and view of Elk Creek from our deck.
