Excellent Experience
The property exceeded expectations. Everything was updated, and utilized high-tech, green technologies. The side facing the river was all windows and displayed stunning views of the river. The deck sticks out over the river (it's almost like being in a tree house sitting over the river). The kitchen was fully equipped and had everything I could ever need to prepare a meal (or make coffee). The bathrooms and laundry room also were well stocked with laundry detergent, soaps and toilet paper. There was an exceptional selection of books, movies, puzzles, and games to meet all your leisurely needs. Great decor and pictures as well. They have pictures of the Mckenzie River in the early 1900s which were very cool to look at. We stayed here in late Winter/early Spring and were lucky to enjoy two sun filled days in a row. It was in the mid 60s but with the sun shinning down and reflecting off the river it felt much warmer. We explored areas around Mckenzie River and ran in to lots of snow as well. The elevation quickly inclines in this area. We brought our own poles in attempt to fish from the property, but the river is much too fast at this spot (could have to do with our lack of knowledge about the fishing in this area or the time of year as well). However, I'm sure there are more good fishing spots you could find in the area, we just didn't look in to it. I think there may have a been a couple kid size fishing poles as well at the property. Overall it was a great experience and we plan on coming back soon. The old growth forest, rivers, waterfalls and hot springs all make for a great escape from urban life.
