This place is simply beautiful and the homes are so nice. We stayed in the Madrone and didn't want to leave after 4 nights. The houses are set up wonderfully with many nice welcoming touches. The homes are on a beautiful section of the river. We slept with the windows open all night listening to the water run over the rocks.

The houses, though close together, were designed so that you felt you were by yourself when sitting on the deck. Even though we had noisy neighbors that we could hear from the driveway, we couldn't hear them when we were sitting outside facing the river.
The beds were comfortable, the kitchen and living room were roomy. We will definitely schedule every trip to Oregon to include staying at the River Vistas.

Idleyld is a very small town but it is centrally located for exploring the river, lakes and the Roseburg area. The convenience store next to the houses has a good selection of basic food and a good selection of wines and alcoholic beverages.

We ate at the Illahee Restaurant in Glide which was excellent. It's more than a "family" restaurant. It has a large selection of great menu items, wines, and a "to-die-for" bakery. The only other place we ate in the area was the Steamboat Inn for lunch and we weren't too impressed with that.

To sum up our recommendation for the River Vista Homes, if they are booked up on your first choice of dates, try to reschedule so you can include a stay here on your itinerary.

The Rver Vista Homes are on the most beautiful spots on the North Umpua River. We have stayed in the Maple and the Fir and both were equally beautiful. The views from the porches are stunning. An outstanding amount of thought and consideration have gone into these vacation homes. The kitchens have everything you need for preparing meals. And throughout the Houses are little things to make you comfortable..from a Bottle of wine to little chocolates next to your bed. We saw an enormous amount of wildlife right from the porch while sitting at the table and chairs provided. Everything was very clean and well thought out. We have an amazing time everytime we visit these private retreats....and plan on visiting as often as we can.

What a delighful surprise to find this gem. River Vista is truly a magical place. While it is located right off Highway 138, once you drive down to the homes you literally leave the world behind. Besides the well appointed houses, the thing we liked most was the feeling of privacy. The decks on each house are situated so each one has it's own view of the river and not of the other decks. Brandi and Randy are warm and gracious hosts, and as long time residents have great info about the surrounding area and what one can see and do. We can't wait to return.
