The Cottage

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

This 1 bedroom, 1 bath cottage is ideal for exploring the gorgeous, fun-filled Willamette Valley and McKenzie River Scenic Route!! Then, come back to a home so cozy and peaceful you would not want to leave except it is also about 75 yards above the McKenzie River! The elevated position of the cottage over the river offers a fantastic view of both the river and what is called the 'pond' from the spacious covered deck. The pond is a quiet inlet of the river with a beach and swimming area. The river attracts osprey, herons, egrets, ducks, geese, otters and beavers, which can be seen frequently.

From May on, there is easy river access (a rugged path for the youngsters and a dirt road for those who need it) for fishing, kayaking, rafting, and swimming. Fishing is excellent from the beach and rocks below the house. The house is at the end of a private lane nestled within 5 acres of blueberry bushes. Blueberries ripen in July and are available through August.

The dining area, living room, bedroom, and deck all have incredible views of the river. There is a large, covered balcony (or deck) for outside meals, wildlife viewing, reading or napping. The bedroom has a queen size bed and sitting area. The kitchen is fully equipped.

Only half and hour from Eugene/Springfield and 65 miles West of Hoodoo ski area, The Berry Patch is ideally located for a winter or summer vacation. Tokatee Golf Course (nationally ranked) is about 25 miles from the house. Belknap Hot Springs is 30 minutes away, and endless miles of roads and wilderness to explore just outside your door.
