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!

Room Tip: Pick the Maple home, it doesn't have stairs and the bathroom is much larger as well as the living area. The other two homes do have a better view of the river as they aren't obstructed by as many trees. We definitely preferred the Maple home.

When we made our reservation, the owner, Randy, warned us that we would not want to leave and he was absolutely right......we even tried to change our airline reservation so that we could stay longer, but, alas, no alternative flights were available. We stayed in the Fir cottage in mid-May and it was fabulous! Beautiful view of the crystal clear Umqua River off the back deck, a romantic comfy loft bed, fully equipped kitchen.....Randy even left us a bottle of local Oregon wine as we were celebrating our anniversary. This trip was just the two of us, but we've already talked to our family about this being the perfect place for a collective family vacation. In addition to the wonderful accomodations, the locale is to die for: world-class fishing, waterfalls, babbling brooks, picnic spots galore, and (for our purposes) lots of scenic squirrel-y roads to drive. My husband and I love to take the roads less travelled and we have seen some unbelievably beautiful spots.....this was right up there at the top. We highly recommend River Vista Vacation Homes!

If you like a clean, well supplied and spacious vacation rental house with an open deck overlooking the Umpqua River this is the place to be. Wish we could have stayed longer. What a treasure. Friendly and informative owner is a plus as well. Lovely location, there are a lot of fun things to do close by. We will be back!

We stayed in the Maple cottage for 2 nights and it was wonderful! The cabin was very homey and clean, and Randy made us feel very welcome and comfortable. It was nice to be out in nature and be able to enjoy all the scenery around us. The view from the deck is amazing and I have never had a better night's sleep! We will definitely be back!

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.
