Unbelievable location! The view is spectacular .
Two of us stayed 2 nights at the Fir, a rustic home nestled in the trees with wood plank vaulted ceilings, sky lights and two large sets of sliding doors that lead to the wrap around balcony looking over the river and the fish below.
The kitchen is large, well-stocked with dishware and cookware and even includes herbs and spices. Dishes are washed by hand. The bathroom is on the 1st floor and the beds are located on the 2nd. A night light at the bottom of the stairs helps you watch out for the last step which is shorter in height than the rest. One bed is on the loft and is separated from the bedroom by louvered doors. We slept in the bedroom and found the bed very comfortable. The nearby waterfalls can be heard when the windows are opened. There is a TV on both floors. Chocolates by the beds, a bottle of wine in the kitchen, and bathrobes in the bathroom were all nice touches.
We choose this place so we could go to Crater Lake (1hr 15 min away) but the house and river itself is a destination and wonderful place to relax. Good access down the bank to the river and large rock formations on which to sit. There is plenty of great hiking nearby. A post office and small grocery/deli are located at the top of the driveway. The driveway drops sharply and is difficult to spot when you pull off the road at the store. Turn at the River Vista sign even if it looks like you are going to go over a cliff.
