Wow, the Maple home was perfect! Fantastic view from the private deck. All three homes are situated so you can't see the other decks. Felt like your home was all alone on the river. The deck included a full size propane grill, which we used, table, chairs. It had an entrance from the master bedroom and living room. It is a short walk down to the river with a suntanning/fishing rock with easy access. There is a tree across the river that the resident Eagle sits. (he was toying with me the whole time as every time I put my camera down, he'd do a close fly-by, I'll get him next time!) The kitchen had more than expected, you really only need to bring food. If you forget something in town, there is a store just a short walk up the hill. It has everything from vegetables to bait. The living area of the home was spacious and nicely decorated. Oh, the beds were both to die for, I haven't had that good of a nights sleep anywhere, very comfy with upscale bedding, the sound of the river just below you and that wonderful bay window with the perfect view for waking up. Randy was just wonderful, very friendly and knowledgeable about the whole area. If your going fishing, you really need to speak with him! We will definitely be back, even if it means breaking our rule of not going to the same place twice. The weather was just right too, no wind and around 70's in July. No mosquitoes, I thought being in a kinda of rainforest area we would be eaten alive, but didn't happen. We didn't need bug spray at all. We were there for seven nights, you need at least that. There's so much to do in the area with all the waterfalls, Crater Lake, white water rafting, fishing and trying to get that perfect shot of that Eagle!
