River House -- North Umpqua River - Private View, Access, Fish

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,500 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Soak up the peace and power of the North Umpqua River in all its year-round moods from the comfort of the living room, with no humans in sight and an old-growth forest backdrop. This large custom house is perched on a high wooded riverbank over a pool and rapids with old-growth forest lining the opposite side. Salmon, steelhead, and trout are in the river year-round, and the house front features the rich bright colors of a fresh salmon fillet. Eagles and osprey fly by at eye-level, otters and geese frolic in the river below.

Excellent for a stay-cation right on the river, but also a good home-base for day-trips -- centrally located between Crater Lake National Park and many Pacific Ocean beach parks (1.5 hours to each). Wine country, antique shops, waterfall hikes, Steamboat Inn, and Diamond Lake are within an hours drive. And the 33-mile North Umpqua Wild & Scenic River section begins within 2 miles, and also is the beginning of the 33 miles of world-famous fly fishing water.

See photos for the lay of the land and modern amenities of this spacious, comfortable house and beautiful reach of river.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived at the Riverhouse in early October 2013 on the heels of an epic early rainstorm. The river was up about 2 feet from summer levels, but still green and dropping. The view from the house was a spectacular backdrop as we made our plans for steehead fishing. Rolling spring chinook, river otters, bald eagles, and the real-time view of river levels kept us glued to the windows. On the river the fishing was great as always, but the catching was challenging. We struck out in the fly water - perhaps many fish were headed up to Steamboat Creek, or the drop in water temperatures put them off. Downstream of the Swiftwater area, we were able to catch three steelhead after more effort than usual. Two hatchery fish and one chrome wild hen released to join her cohorts upstream. Three nights in the Riverhouse went by quickly - restful nights of sleep with the river soundtrack, epic meals in the spacious kitchen and off of the new gas barbie. We were sad to leave and hope to return again in the fall for yet another repeat fishing experience.

Beautiful Nature

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing time at this beautiful river home.

Peaceful water sounds 24 hours a day.

The house is more than expected by the pictures and description. The host remembered everything you could possibly thought you needed. No cell service for our AT&T phones but WiFI helped us keep in touch where needed.

Thanks Rich for allowing us to rent your peaceful home.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house provided the perfect family getaway vacation spot. It's perfectly located, had wonderful spaces and great access to the river. We enjoyed our visit with Rich, fishing everyday and enjoying the beauty of the river. The kitchen is huge and has everything needed for meals in, the grill outside is wonderful and the back porch is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee. Our family only needed 2 of the 5 beds provided, so lots of space to spread out! If you forget anything the Idleyld Trading Post is a short distance away and has a little bit of everything. The house is close to great hiking, fishing and an hour or so drive to Crater Lake National Park. We created wonderful family memories!

Our beautiful stay at the River House Retreat in Glide

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for 5 of us going to my son's wedding which took place at Idleyld Park near by. My son is an avid fisherman and this is one of his favorite spots.

The house we rented couldn't have been nicer or more equipped with dishes etc but it is the view that will take your breath away. Unfortunately with all the wedding stuff to do we weren't able to relax and enjoy it nearly long enough. We would all like to return and just ENJOY! They have a lovely deck to sit out and watch the river flow over the rocks. (Beautiful)
