“Great anniversary getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We stayed in the Maple cottage for 2 nights and it was wonderful! The cabin was very homey and clean, and Randy made us feel very welcome and comfortable. It was nice to be out in nature and be able to enjoy all the scenery around us. The view from the deck is amazing and I have never had a better night's sleep! We will definitely be back!

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.

We rented all three homes last month and took all of our friends and family for a relaxing weekend. We had a blast! We already reserved them for next year. It is nice to have the "home" feel away from your own home. Randy was very nice and helpful. Will be going back often.

Room Tip: All the cabins are great we liked them all

Our cabin was great! Very clean and a full kitchen really was convenient... Didn't even need our own kitchenware, all provided which was a bonus. Randy was a very generous host, and helped with anything we needed. Great view of the river, and a private fishing area. Will definitely be going back again!

We stayed in the Maple home for one night during a week long road trip around Southern and Central Oregon. This place is amazing! A beautiful comfortable, clean and nicely furnished home on the river. You feel like you are staying in a tree house the way it is built over the river. We were greeted in the morning by a huge bald eagle perched across the river. We watched him from the bedroom window and balcony for over an hour! It was a great experience! The beds are super comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped for preparing family meals. There is a small general store within walking distance that has great breakfast burritos. The river views are awesome. We can't wait to go back and spend more time! The owner is extremely helpful.
