“We're coming back to this incredible place!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

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!

We stayed in the Maple home for one night during a week long road trip around Southern and Central Oregon. This place is amazing! A beautiful comfortable, clean and nicely furnished home on the river. You feel like you are staying in a tree house the way it is built over the river. We were greeted in the morning by a huge bald eagle perched across the river. We watched him from the bedroom window and balcony for over an hour! It was a great experience! The beds are super comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped for preparing family meals. There is a small general store within walking distance that has great breakfast burritos. The river views are awesome. We can't wait to go back and spend more time! The owner is extremely helpful.

Camping is fun as you get to be in remote spots but this place beats all, and you get to stay in a house instead of pitching a tent! It's right off of Highway 138 but it's down a little driveway and away from any highway noise. You won't find many cars on that part of the highway anyway for that matter. The location is so perfect with so much nature everywhere! You are right next to Deadline Falls (5 miles) which has fish jumping. We went to Crater Lake for the day stopping at a couple of waterfalls and taking in a few wonderful hikes.

The cabin (house) itself has all the amenities you need. It's got a rustic feel to it that Randy (the owner) then adds little luxuries to, such as robes, fluffy towels, soft sheets, bottle of wine, and even chocolates by your bedside. The bed is comfy, the place is quiet, the kitchen is stocked, and there's even a gas grill should you want to barbeque on the deck.

They have 3 houses, 2 are pet friendly. They also have a house with one story if you cannot climb stairs. All of them have incredible front row seats of the Umpqua river. You will not even know there are other people nearby however because it's very quiet.

The location has a restaurant 3 miles away which serves awesome meals even though you are in a tiny town.

There's a rock out there called Turtle rock that you can jump off and go swimming but the owner will fill you in to all of that information. Speaking of the owner, he was charming and helpful. We were greeted by him once we settled in on the deck with our wine.

NOTE: No wifi and no cell service in the house. There are places close by that you can get these services but to me it would have been an intrusion.
