It has a massive stone fireplace featuring the ranch brand and other artifacts. This cottage has a queen bedroom, a second bedroom with two twins, and a bath with claw foot tub/shower.

Lonesome Duck Surprise
We were in awe of this property! Lonesome Duck turned out to be one of the best surprises and places we've experienced in our travels. The managers (Marshall and Suzie) were great and Steve (the owner) took the time to introduce us to Oregon's high desert. We will definitely be back. The cabin was tastefully appointed and surroundings were bucolic. Best night sky ever!
Loved the cozy cabin on the river. Caretakers were very helpful. The free use of kayaks and row boats was appreciated. Would stay there again!
Thanks. Pleased that you enjoyed Lonesome Duck Ranch
Right on the Williamson River. Quiet cottage, well appointed.
Owner and staff appropriately involved to make sure our stay was enjoyable. I wish we could have stayed longer.
Beautiful views, nice cabin!
Stayed with my daugters, close to Crater lake, enjoyed the Kayaks!
A great cabin on a beautiful river
I stayed at Lonesome Duck for four nights with a life-long friend with the idea of having quality time to catch up and show him some of the spectacular sights of South Central Oregon. We had high expectations and were not disappointed. The cabin is simple but more than adequate with some very nice touches (check out the stone work around the wood stove). The river is beautiful and we enjoyed our evenings watching the wood ducks, muskrats, jumping (leaping, really) fish, and bald eagles from the porch. Marshall (the caretaker) was a real resource for guiding us where to go on day hikes etc. The only down side was the WiFi. If a guest really needs to have decent connectivity, this could be a problem (hence four stars instead of five). Might be something for the owners to look into. I also found the shower (one bathroom) to be a bit of a challenge. But, hey, it's a cabin.
Robert, pleased that you stayed with us and enjoyed the house and property. Our country location does limit our wifi speed but as you said the setting makes up for it. Best Regards, Steve H
Peace and harmony along the river
Unbelievable place to stay, to get away, to enjoy the quiet. Steve's place is well maintained and beautifully decorated to the heart of Arrowhead cabin. He rebuilt it himself. And, the fireplace is the center piece. All your life's qualms go away sipping coffee, or whiskey, on the porch watching the river flow by. I highly recommend this cabin. Thanks Steve!!
Chad, appreciate it----you could be a poet..
