We stayed in Eleanor's Lodge at House on Metolius for 3 nights in early September. It's hard to imagine a more tranquil setting. Eleanor's lodge was a rustic log cabin with a large great room with stone fireplace, large kitchen and very large wrap around deck looking over the Metolius River Gorge on one side and the meadow with views...

Dear Dawn, Thank you for your kind remarks. We love Eleanor's cabin ourselves, and are very pleased that you had such an enjoyable stay. As you note, we do have plenty of wildlife about, whether it is the elk grazing across the meadow, the coyotes yipping in the evening or (occasionally) a squirrel jumping on the roof in the night....

The Metolius House is a beautiful lodge nestled atop a gorge overlooking the Metolius River and scenic pasture land, with Mount Jefferson and Three Fingered Jack as a viewing bonus. Wow! The service is great, the food is too. The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms are new. We highly recommend it.

Do I tell everyone how wonderful this place is or do I keep it a wonderful secret? I guess I tell everyone in the hopes that it won't fill up and become more expensive by the time my husband and I want to come back. The truth is we didn't want to leave. Who knew that so beautiful a mid... More

House of the Metolius is among the top 3 inns where we have ever stayed. The ambiance of the lodge is just wonderful; despite a recent renovation it has maintained a vintage feel. The beauty and tranquility of the setting is unsurpassed; we were even treated to a chorus of coyotes howling one night (a personal favorite)! Our group of... More

My partner and I stayed here for two summer nights and we really did not want to leave! The hosts, Jade and Loy, were kind and welcoming. Our room in the main lodge was spacious, tastefully decorated, and spotlessly clean, with a stunning view of the tree-rimmed meadow and the Metolius River, backed by the snow-covered peak of Mt. Jefferson.... More

I don't really know how to rate this place. The setting is beyond gorgeous. Just a few cabins. Lush lawns. Incredible views. The river running right through it. You could not ask for a more beautiful spot. The hosts are friendly and helpful. The cabin was spotless. The setting was totally quiet. On the downside, the cabin we had (Gorge)... More

We were only able to stay one night, which is simply not enough time at this fabulous resort. We have stayed at many other spots in Central Oregon, but this was our first to Camp Sherman, and it won't be the last. We booked the River Wisdom Package - it was great, as it included a 3 course dinner with... More

How does one get close to the river, the trees, the silence of our natural world without a tent and a sleeping bag? This place is the answer. No tv's, thin walls, or blow up mattresses. The rooms included touches that an artist can appreciate. The River Wisdom Pkg came with Moonstruck chocolates, cardamom cookies, tea etc. The staff was... More

My summers (1950's) were spent at a family rance across the river from House On Metolius. Those summers and the setting changed my life. A new building (with 7 "hotel rooms) continues to respsect the pristine, unbelievable setting. Cascade mountains, amazing Metolius River meandering through an unspoilded meadow (emerges out of the ground few miles away) is breath taking. Land... More
