My summers (1950's) were spent at a family rance across the river from House On Metolius. Those summers and the setting changed my life. A new building (with 7 "hotel rooms) continues to respsect the pristine, unbelievable setting. Cascade mountains, amazing Metolius River meandering through an unspoilded meadow (emerges out of the ground few miles away) is breath taking. Land in the area is protected from further commercial development. The Metolius River is known worldwide for catch and release fly fishing. Camp Sherman (store, fishing gear, sanwiches, and a single gas tank) near by looks almost the same as in the 1950s. Hiking is available in a 360 range to spectacular trails and unspoiled views one can hope for. The facility is well designed. Furnished with facinating books. A grand piano in a large living room and spacious outdoor patios just above the river. Overall a quiet setting. Enables acquiring rest, relaxation, peace and solitude.
This visit was for an invited group to experience a marvelous setting, good food and music. Did not spend the night. Comments on rest of the setting; highly recommended.More
