“A little slice of paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

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!

If you like a clean, well supplied and spacious vacation rental house with an open deck overlooking the Umpqua River this is the place to be. Wish we could have stayed longer. What a treasure. Friendly and informative owner is a plus as well. Lovely location, there are a lot of fun things to do close by. We will be back!

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!
