We had a wonderful weekend at House on Metolius over Easter weekend. The weather was outstanding, views of the mountains was great and the food and service was amazing. Thank you to Jade, Loy and Robert for truly memorable stay.

Room Tip: House on Metolius is the best kept secret in the NW. It is perfect for family get togethers as well as corporate retreats. You will never find this kind of solitude anywhere else.

Hi Ken: It's great to hear that you and your family enjoyed a "mini-reunion" here this past weekend. We certainly found it fun meeting more of your family and seeing how they all enjoyed your grandson and their great grandson. There seemed to be a lot of excitement with the little one! In addition, sharing food and beverage together while celebrating the 62nd wedding anniversary of your aunt & uncle made it an extra special weekend. Best wishes for many more such happy celebrations!

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.

Room Tip: There are two areas for overnight accomodations. The original "cabins" used mostly by those there for fishing. Rustic, quiet and exquisit views of Cascades and meandering river. The new facility has 7 rooms, which I did not view. Some are facing the mountains, others the Pondarosa Pine that blankets the area.

Hello EB ! Thank you so much for your wonderful comments about House on Metolius. Your memories of past visits were so interesting to hear and to see that you feel all is well here on the Metolius River Basin was very encouraging to hear! It was also great to see you visiting with Jade (she says "hello" as well) and discussing past visits to the area with your friends GC & KM. The "new building" or Main Lodge as we call it, isn't really "new" as it has been our owners' family home and private retreat since the late 1950's. As you noted, guests enjoyed the cabins on the west side of the river, while our owners enjoyed their privacy here on the east side of the river. The Main Lodge was opened for use by the public in April 2012 and it has been well-received in this first year of business. The great concert you enjoyed by noted Portland pianist and composer, Michael Allen Harrison, who was joined by recording artist, Julianne Johnson, also of Portland, is just one of many such special events we've begun to host in order to showcase this wonderful private home now turned into an elegant retreat. We hope you will come and visit us again soon and we thank you again for your support and compliments. Best regards!

This is the ultimate romantic get away! A surreal mountain resort experience. From the hosts Jade and Loy greeting me by my first name to the beautiful views from every part of the resort.

The place is perfect for a wedding party. The rooms are large and some have cozy fireplaces. The Great Room had a large fireplace, along with a grand piano. The dinning room and lounge area was warm and relaxing also with a fireplace. Great for conversing and enjoying a delicious meal. They have 3 lodges and 3 cabins. The Main Lodge is immaculate.

Speaking of meals, this place has amazing food! Catered to the brides's liking, the appetizers, lunch and dinner was an assortment of fresh green salads, roasted seasonal veggies, crab cakes, wild rice, roasted lamb and chicken skewers, roasted duck, grilled trout, pickled cucumbers and to top if off, continental breakfast was served every morning. This place is a foodie's heaven. If I lived near by, I would eat here once a week just for the homestyle cooked food! Just when we thought the afternoon reception was over, just after 6 PM, they served us the leftovers! I NEVER had this type of experience before! They also cater to special diets, for people like me with sensitive tummies. I felt spoiled and blessed to have had such unbelievable meals catered just for us!

I feel so grateful to have this once in a lifetime experience and recommend House on Metolius to all those lovers of the great outdoors.

Mahalonuiloa (Many Thanks) to Loy and Jade for attending our every need and the secret Chef (whoever she/he may be =)

Room Tip: Sleep with your windows open, if you like to fall asleep to the sounds of the forest and the river flowing. Open the windows when lighting the fireplace or you may trigger the smoke detectors.

Dear Mahal: Thank you so much for your wonderful comments about our facilities and staff. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed attending the wedding this past weekend and your detailed review really made us smile. We try very hard to "meet and exceed" our guests' expectations and we appreciate your compliments. Our Chef, Robert, also enjoyed reading your evaluation of his food preparations. We like to focus on regional cuisine and he calls it "South by Northwest", using indigenous ingredients but always with a little spice to perk up the flavors. He is no longer a "secret" as many of our guests have discovered him and now follow his flavors with special dinners which they arrange here at HOM. We hope that you too will be able to return and enjoy the House again on a future visit. Remember that you are always welcome and we'll be sure to have your room ready again soon! Best regards - Loy, Jade and Robert

I recently had the opportunity to spend 2 nights with our Sales Team at the House on the Metoliis! There were 6 adult men on the retreat. It was perfect! In addition to a perfect setting and relaxed meeting space, we were also able to do some fly fishing with the help of local guides arranged by management. Three of the guys were totally inexperienced but had great fun and one of the other more experienced was able to land about a 9# Bull Trout! Another afternoon we booked 18 holes at the wonderful course at Black Butte Ranch (very close by). The food, drink and hospitality if the staff was wonderful and the warm homey feel of the main house built on the experience.
I would recommend House on the Metolius for any function of this nature or even a few couples get-away week or long weekend.
We will be back soon.

Mike - Thank you for the great notes from your company retreat this past fall. We enjoyed serving you and your team. We also remember that great fish adventure....the largest fish any of our guests landed this season and with our catch and release waters, it will be there for another lucky angler in the future! Don't forget the great team-building sessions around the fireplace in the living room as well. All in all, we're glad it was a productive time for each of you and we look forward to your return. Best regards!

We just returned from an overnight business retreat where we had a chance to get all the members of the team together to create more connection, communication, and clarity around the business we're growing. The House on the Metolius was the PERFECT location to do this. We were all able to stay in the Main House and bask in the amazing attention to detail that Loy, Jade, and Robert (LOVED the coconut rice!!) put into every aspect of our stay. Make no mistake, this is not rustic. It is desert elegance right out of an issue of Architectural Digest. The families that own the property are inspiring adventurers and risk-takers as made evident along the hallway. We had our first 'meeting' in the main living room, and needed to take a 'deer moment' break to watch two deer come up on the property for a bit of lunch and prance across the lawn. We were well taken care of and we look forward to going back!

Room Tip: The whole house was quiet, with a nice distance between rooms so we didn't feel crowded.
