This place is incredible. We stayed four nights in January. We made a point to be back early from our hiking every day so we could sit on the sofa with our wine while looking at the amazing Umpqua River flow by.
The place was immaculate, well furnished and the host, Randy, was totally nice and helpful. Our biggest problem was deciding which bed to sleep in as both had river views and looked inviting.
It is our intention to come back every year to River Vista, both to do some serious fishing on the private property directly in front (free from the shoulder to shoulder fishing I've grown tired of) and just to read and relax.
Since my wife and I retired we have traveled quite a bit - and without a doubt, this was one of the more beautiful places we've wandered across. And that is why this will be a yearly stop for us - during Salmon season.
