About Stephen & Sarah Polacek
We currently live in Chester, Virginia with our two children. Stephen is active duty in the United States Army and works as a logistic officer. Our family truly enjoys the outdoors. Southern Oregon is one of our favorite places to spend time.
Stephen & Sarah Polacek purchased this House in 2011
Why Stephen & Sarah Polacek chose Grants Pass
We both grew up in North Bend, along the Oregon coast. Together with our families, we spent our childhood summers camping and rafting the Rogue. As children, we would float by the homes along the side of the river and always dream about someday owning one of them. In 2011, we decided it was time to fulfill that dream and purchased the house from its original owner. We have spent the last few years remodeling it inside and out. The home is now a favorite gathering place for our family and friends. We are enjoying watching the next generation create memories at the River House and discovering the magic of the Rogue River. The home truly is our childhood dream come true and our favorite place to vacation. We are so happy to share the magic with you!
What makes this House unique
The property has a park like setting with large grassy areas with lots of trees. The riverfront is a beautiful thing to wake up to each day. Sitting on the deck and looking at it flow by is very peaceful. The deck also serves as a wildlife viewing area. There is a family of deer that will often stroll through the yard in the evening to head to the river to get a drink. Lots of squirrels, birds, and other critters to enjoy.

Home sweet home
Great location. Home was well decorated, had lots of space, and a was well stocked. We prepared/grilled most of our meals there. Enjoyed seeing wildlife on the property. Bees keep us indoors more than we had hoped.
Pictures do not do justice!
This home and location was amazing. We had booked a 10 day stay here which lasted less than 24 hours after being evacuated because of wildfires and were saddened to leave such a perfect place. The house was spacious and very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our 24 hours! The deck was incredible as was the peaceful and quiet setting on the river. Sarah and Steven were accommodating and helpful and we couldn't have asked for nicer hosts. We look forward to going back next summer.

Amazing weekend getaway on the river
We had such a wonderful family getaway at the Riverhouse. The space was perfect for our family and had everything we needed for a long weekend. Some reviews mention a steep climb down to the river, but we didn’t have any trouble and were able to get down to the water unscathed with chairs and a 3 year old multiple times. We spent many hours on the back deck enjoying the peace and quiet. the tree canopy in the backyard offers lots of shade and great birding. The proximity to boat launches, Wildlife Images, and fishing spots was as good as it gets. Sara and Stephen were extremely helpful in answering questions and were so accommodating. We definitely will be returning!
Very relaxing and well equipped and spotless!
My husband and I spent 3 nights at River House as a trial run for our 50th anniversary family vacation location next year. We truly enjoyed the spacious and comfortable home and lived outside on the great deck almost our whole stay except for sleeping! Watching the river traffic was fun and we cooked, ate, read and watched birds the entire time. Grants Pass had plenty to offer in shopping as well as restaurants. We enjoyed Gtanos Latin Restaurant on SW G Street. Small family eatery with huge portions. We’ll be back!
