When we made our reservation, the owner, Randy, warned us that we would not want to leave and he was absolutely right......we even tried to change our airline reservation so that we could stay longer, but, alas, no alternative flights were available. We stayed in the Fir cottage in mid-May and it was fabulous! Beautiful view of the crystal clear Umqua River off the back deck, a romantic comfy loft bed, fully equipped kitchen.....Randy even left us a bottle of local Oregon wine as we were celebrating our anniversary. This trip was just the two of us, but we've already talked to our family about this being the perfect place for a collective family vacation. In addition to the wonderful accomodations, the locale is to die for: world-class fishing, waterfalls, babbling brooks, picnic spots galore, and (for our purposes) lots of scenic squirrel-y roads to drive. My husband and I love to take the roads less travelled and we have seen some unbelievably beautiful spots.....this was right up there at the top. We highly recommend River Vista Vacation Homes!
