Property description

Belknap House is your base camp: as dawn breaks over the adjacent Belknap Bridge, one of the remaining covered bridges of Lane County, start your adventure with a full day of hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, golfing, horseback riding, fly fishing, blueberry picking, or whatever you enjoy. In the afternoon, return to base to relax in the tree-house-style deck by the flowing river, or curl up with a good book in a window seat. Later, as evening falls, make dinner together. After dessert of those freshly-picked blueberries on top of homemade ice cream, and perhaps an aperitif or two, play games, tell stories, and trade memories in front of the roaring fire until it is time for bed. Fall deeply asleep until the smell of coffee percolating the next morning leads you to slowly wake up, ready for the adventures the new day will bring.

Newly built in 2011, Belknap House was designed as a private green hideaway. The building is sited so all rooms face the river with views that let in light, sound, and aroma while maintaining your privacy from the fishermen in McKenzie river drift boats and paddlers in whitewater rafts heading downstream during the summer. Belknap House respects the natural riparian habitat and old-growth forest that are essential for the frogs, beavers, rainbow trout, cut-throat salmon, and their friends who thrive here.

Sleeps up to 7 (four adults in beds, two adults in window seats, and one youth in trundle bed). Downstairs bedroom has a queen-size bed. Upstairs bedroom has two twin beds. Upstairs loft has a window seat and trundle bed. Downstairs living room has a window seat. Each window seat is 6-7 feet long by 4 feet wide and is stocked with sheets, blankets, and pillows that you can use or bring your own sleeping bag. The trundle bed pulls out from under the upstairs window seat and accommodates a child up to age 10 or shorter adult.

The master bedroom includes a spacious closet, window seat, and the master bathroom. The master bathroom includes an marble-topped vanity equipped with sink and large mirrors, plus private shower and toilet. The upstairs bathroom features a spacious shower and one sink in the vanity, plus toilet.

The kitchen has a soapstone countertop and is equipped with a dinnerware service for 8, a nice set of pots & pans, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, and electric range.
The dining room table seats six, with more chairs and tables available in the living room, enclosed porch, and open deck.

Amenities you will enjoy include Wi-Fi, wood-burning stove, heat, European-style compact combo washer-dryer, and gas grill on the deck. The bookshelves are filled with wonderful books to borrow and games to enjoy.

What’s not at Belknap House: cable, television set, DVD/VHS player, air conditioning, landline telephone. (Both Verizon and AT&T provide wireless cellular coverage. The Verizon signal tends to be stronger locally than AT&T.)

Children are more than welcome! Please keep in mind, however, that there are the deck, river, and woods nearby so use your best judgment.

The property manager of a nearby inn manages Belknap House so, unlike many other local rentals, there is someone to call at any time of the day or night if you need anything.

One-day minimum. Peak periods fill up quickly so reserve early.

Other nearby services include:
Harbick’s Country Store (fully-stocked general store, plus gas station)
Takoda’s restaurant
Rustic Skillet restaurant
Belknap Hot Gprings and gardens
Tokatee 18-hole golf course

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When you arrive at Belknap House, you will find a guest book filled with comments from other travelers. Here, verbatim, is what they wrote: 'The Belknap House is a treasure. We count ourselves fortunate to have found it.' 'We had such a wonderful time in the Belknap House. It is an absolutely gorgeous and a house I fell in love with. It made my birthday absolutely spectacular.' 'What a beautiful, spectacular place! We loved it. The tranquil, lovely and peaceful Northwest as we envisioned it. We will return!' 'Thank you for creating a physical representation of peace, for all to enjoy. We see ourselves coming back regularly to take advantage of this River Haven.' 'Simply stunning.' 'Calm. Refreshing. Rejuvenating. Retreat. Serene. Fun. Peaceful. Healing.' 'Thank you for creating this beautiful cabin! Your sense of beauty, your attention to detail, your ability to bring soothing nature inside is a gift and inspiration. We don't want to leave. Thank you for sharing your talents and gifts in the form of this beautiful cabin.' ================================ Three guests have left complaints in the guest book, related to the sheets for the downstairs bedroom, a pipe in the kitchen, and a toilet. We immediately fixed those problems by buying new, comfortable sheets, tightening the thread on the leaky pipe, and clearing out the drain from the toilet to the septic tank. Any time day or night during your stay, you can call the property manager to have these types of issues cleared up right away.
