Beautiful and very peaceful. Doesn’t get much better than to wake up to that view! And dog friendly a definite plus.

River Wonderful!

Thanks to our special host we had a very cozy, lovely stay at the Inn! My birthday was extra special with the wonderful view of the River from our cabin. The spectacular spot in the universe! Thank you so much, Bert!

Amazing serenity, very friendly, and absolutely stunning scenery. Close to amazing waterfalls, hiking, guides fishing trips, rafting, mountain biking, etc.

”Simple and serene.
A much-needed break on the river with no distractions or interruptions. Exactly what I needed.

Thanks so much, Bert.

Review #23883806 “The Osprey Cabin Right On The McKenzie River”

Beautiful View
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
The cabin was a bit rustic for my taste and well worn. When I mentioned that the couch seemed broken I was told that they are going to update the cabin so I do look forward to staying there again. I did get to see one of the renovated cabins and it was quite nice. That being said bed was super comfortable with lush linens, the place was really clean. In addition to the coffee maker, there was coffee! The river view is spectacular! Bert and Annie are wonderful hosts and overall it was a really nice visit. If you are looking for luxury, keep looking. If your looking for really great surroundings with lovely owners that treat you well and care that you are comfortable and happy then this is the place. I stayed there because I was visiting nearby family so did not participate in their artist’s workshops. They look great and if I can tear myself away from my grandkids I may sign up for one. Thanks for a great week. See you again!

Great experience

A friend and I stayed 3 nights in the cabin and did 2 days of fishing with Burt. The cabin and location are beautiful and private. The fishing was good. Burt made sure we were having fun and wow, what a great cook! I’ve never had a better lunch!

Wonderful, Romantic stay on the McKenzie
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We had a wonderful stay at the McKenzie River Inn in the Kingfisher cabin. The cabin is great for a romantic getaway and the river is just steps from the back door. We fished a bit and just really spent the time on ourselves. It truly was a nice, reconnected weekend.

killer river view!!

Ahhh so relaxed now. We stayed for 2 nights and the only problem was that we couldn’t hang any longer. Perfect getaway.
We are refreshed, renewed, and very grateful.
Love the dog-friendly aspect.
The bed was insanely comfy too! The whole area is gorgeous. We’re already discussing our return.
