About the property

Cabin, Sleeping Loft (Sleeps 5-8), 1 Bath

A Fabulous Fishing Experience or a Fun-Filled Family Vacation in Shady Cove!

Head to the Upper Rogue (boat ramp just a mile away), just twenty miles from Medford.

-Close to Crater Lake, Lost Creek Lake, Diamond Lake, Fish Lake, Lake of the Woods, and many other mountain lakes

-Relax on porch of the cabin and enjoy the deer prancing through the pasture or the gentle breeze cooling the summer night air.

-Let 'Captain' Kim arrange all of your fishing and rafting needs for you. Just tell him what you want to do during your stay at The Eagle's Roost and we'll make sure it happens. We know that once you stay here with your fishing pals, you'll want to return with the entire family. This town truly offers fun for all ages.

-The two-story, rustic (but not too rustic) wood cabin with worry-free 'slate-looking' flooring has a full bathroom (shower/tub) in the lodge-style. There is a toilet, sink and place to bathe a little one or take a shower after a tough day of playin'.

-There's a handy mudroom off the side porch to store your muddy boots or food.

-Full kitchen with beautiful views to the pasture. YOU will need nothing from home for the kitchen. The kitchen has all of the plates, cups, utensils, pots, pans that you need. There's a coffee bar set up for your early morning pre-fishing cup of java and a large microwave as well as a stove/oven.

-Leave your towels and sheets at home, we'll take care of that for you. Just bring the bare necessities to The Eagle's Roost.

-This cabin is full of charm, and has two collections of books-one for the outdoorsman and another for the indoors person, as well as a VCR and large children's video collection upstairs.

-The upstairs sleeping loft is great fun for all with its quilts and little touches of home. On one side of the staircase is both a king-sized and twin-sized bed. On the other side of the staircase are two quilt-draped cozy queen beds with a picture window in between,

-The downstairs sitting area is very comfy with a vintage wagon-wheel furniture which came from a fishing lodge on the Rogue. The sofa is a twin-sized hide-a-bed. Tables all around hold your hot or cold beverages and there's an entertainment center with a 42 ' flatscreen TV and DVD player. Of course we have free Wifi!

-The dining gallery is gorgeous. The mango wood table seats four-six. It has a two-story ceiling, so you truly feel as if you are somewhere special. Of course, all of those who appreciate hunting will appreciate Kim's trophies.

-Once you stay at 'The Eagle's Roost,' you'll beg us to reserve your spot for the following year and we will gladly do so for returning guests.

About Kim and Kathy Parara

Kim is a lifetime outdoorsman with a true passion for hunting, fishing, and anything of the outdoor nature. He and his wife, Kathy live on the property which my be very helpful to guests. Kathy likes to catch fish, but spends much of her time doing volunteer work and mixed media art. Kim hunted the area for forty years as his dearly departed brother, Mark (for whom the Eagle's Roost is dedicated) lived in nearby Butte Falls for many years. Kim and Kathy dreamed of buying a house, not only in Shady Cove, but on the river, on Rene Drive, and spent ten years looking for their dream home. When 205 Rene became available, we knew it was US, a bit more US than some of the gorgeous houses on our street. You must take a walk on our beautiful street when you arrive to stretch out those travel-cramped legs. Kathy was a teacher and school administrator for 27 years (Kim spent 37 years with the City of Santa Clara before retiring in 2007). However life changed in one second in September 2011 as Kathy and Kim were still unpacking boxes and moving in when Kathy was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has recovered and is looking forward to a long life with Kim in Shady Cove.

Kim and Kathy Parara purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Kim and Kathy Parara chose Shady Cove

Both Kim and Kathy absolutely love this section of the river, the town and people of Shady Cove, and Steelhead Ranch! We feel completely blessed to have been able to purchase this beautiful home and had a vision for the cabin as it became The Eagle's Roost in June of 2011. Kim's brother, Mark loved eagles and we felt that this was an appropriate name for the cabin and we think you will too as the sleeping loft is truly an area for you to roost and rest for the night.

What makes this cabin unique

Fishing, hiking, river rafting, sightseeing, wildflower seeking, shopping, antique-ing, golfing, wine-tasting, and just plain relaxing are the benefits of staying at Eagle's Roost.

Quality time

  • 4 of 5

Six of us spent Thanksgiving here. We cooked all of our Thanksgiving meal in the kitchen and had nice quality family time. Kim and Kathy are fantastic. I think this place would be really fun in the warmer months when you can spend more time outside on the river. Highly recommend!

A little piece of heavenly hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

June 2013: Thanks to Kim and Kathy for your hospitality, flexibility, and general helpfulness in making our ten-day stay at the “Eagle’s Roost” such a delightful experience! From planning to departure, it could not have gone any better! As you can see from the list below, we definitely made the most of our short trip to Oregon to visit lifelong friends and have an incredible summer getaway for “just the guys”! Thank you both for sharing your little piece of heaven with us, for allowing us to love on your beautiful dogs, and treating me and my boys so well! The Eagle’s Roost was a wonderful place to land every night and will forever hold a special week within our hearts and minds! We wouldn’t dream of staying anywhere else on our next trip to Oregon – next time, the whole family is coming! Plenty of room for that  We are also so blessed to have walked away with two new friends on Facebook – two years strong!

the best ever!

  • 5 of 5

this was by far the mot relaxing and enjoyable 4 days i have ever had! next time will be staying longer! the lodging wants for nothing! A/C makes sleeping during the warm nights wonderful. Thanks Kim and Kathy! location is the best...close to many deer, i felt like they were our pets! River is amazing and i would recommend hiring Kim as your guide for a lazy day on the river. Best guide ever! all the comforts of home, but close to day trips of Crater lake, wineries, hikes, waterfalls, river floats! Kim and Kathy are wonderful hosts and their cabin is on the top of next year's vacations! Highly recommend this! you will not be disappointed!

The real deal

  • 5 of 5

This unique cabin on the property above the beautiful Rogue River affords comfort, relaxation and opportunity to experience Southern Oregon. Whether strolling on Rogue River Drive or taking a ride east to Prospect, Crater Lake or west to Medford, Ashland or Jacksonville, you can choose full day or partial day outings without having to endure a lot of traffic. It is easy to get a tee time on a nearby golf course or arrange for drop off and pick up from one of the local raft rental companies. The cabin is well equipped with everything to make your stay comfortable. The owners love where they live and are willing to share their knowledge with their guests. This is the real deal. Enjoy!

Wonderful time!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the great pleasure of staying with Kim and Kathy at The Eagle's Roost at steelhead ranch, and I cannot say enough about our hosts, and the entire experience! The roost is a redone cabin, authentically outfitted with everything we needed for your visit. Full kitchen, with everything we needed to do our own meals. The beds are comfortable, and the AC unit did the trick while we were there, as temps reached 108, the house stayed cool and comfortable. The property is safe and quiet, with shady cove only 3 minutes away. Deer, turkey, and morning and evening flights of geese up and down the river were a daily experience. Ospreys and bald eagles, the cool rogue river, clear skies and starlit nights,,,,,,,,,,, and our hosts were there for us at our every request. We spent several days floating the rogue with Kim in his pro NRS raft, and being a life long outdoorsman, I was impressed at his knowledge and experience with all aspects of fishing and wildlife observation. Several times he would point out wildlife, otters, deer, turkeys, etc that I had failed to pick out. He loves what he does, and is outstanding with kids and adults alike. As for things to do, crater lake was beautiful, but my favorite place was south umpqua falls. About 1 1/2 hr drive, its a park with a gently sloping rock face that drops into a beautiful pool. You can slide down the rock, and drop into the pool, or swim in the pools, hang out on the beach and watch everyone else. My wife enjoyed ahsland and jacksonville for shops and eating, and my daughter and son kept asking if we can live there! Phil's frosty, the local bait and tackle shop, my son got a hair cut at the barber shop next door, barbecue next door to the supermarket,,,,,,, we had a tremendous time and will be back for sure! Thanks Kim and Kathy!!!

There is so much to do as Shady Cove is the hub of outdoor activity and more. First and foremost, we are just 60 miles away from the world-renowned Crater Lake. On the way there, stop at gorgeous waterfalls in the town of Prospect and have some lunch and pie at Beckie's Cafe. There are many hiking and water activities just miles from our cabin. Lost Creek Lake is just eight miles away where you can enjoy your boat or jet skis or stay dry and hike on one of the many trails. A Robert Trent Jones golf course is minutes away in Eagle Point. There is live theatre in Ashland, antique-ing, fine dining, and wine tasting in our Rogue Valley. The Rogue River which runs through our town of Shady Cove offers fishing as well as gentle eight-mile, relaxing (but definitely some fun rapids) rafting-we can set that up for you too! Seven Feathers Casino is a 90-minute drive through gorgeous forest and mountain regions. You must take the kids to good ol' Phil's Frosty in Shady Cove for soft-serve cones, eat at Mac's Diner and have a chai and shop at The Oreganic Shoppe right here in Shady Cove where the owner's artwork is featured. For all of you fishermen out there, just make sure that you leave the landlocked loved ones with a car. They will find a week's worth of things to do in Shady Cove, Jacksonville, Ashland, and Medford.
