Wake up to the sound of the McKenzie river in a private studio, located just 3 miles from Eugene. Watch a bald eagle fly up river, catch native resides in the back yard and take advantage of local river knowledge to catch big wild fish on the fly.

The space

The room is very large (220 sq ft) with a connected private full bath. There are two exterior entry points, one to the driveway and the other out to the patio with a hot tub that overlooks the river and wood fired outdoor cooking area. The room has a 42 inch flat screen for watching movies, a comfortable queen size bed, fold down leather futon (optional blow-up queen mattress) and pack 'n play available upon request. Very comfortable for 2 people and could sleep up to four all in one room. There is a small fridge, coffee maker and toaster oven in the room. If it works on the weekend I could fire up the wood fired oven and make pizzas, there is a gas grill in the courtyard.

Guest access

My location is on a very peaceful stretch of the McKenzie River, with sounds of rapids and lots of nature. There are wonderful opportunities to fly-fish, sit by the river and watch bald eagles and osprey fly, as well as an option to go out in the drift boat. (dependent upon my availability) There are also several kayaks that can be freely used and I can aid in shuttling you up river.

Interaction with guests

The room is located off the front of the house with direct access to the patio with the hot tub. It is very private, guests can come and go with very little interaction necessary.

I stayed at this beautiful spot a few months ago and booked it again for friends visiting from Alabama. They loved it!

Mark's place is quiet and secluded, but still close to anywhere you want to go in Eugene.

Mark took my wife and I up stream to Kayak the mighty McKenzie. Some parts of the river were a little scary for us kayaking noobs, but it was well worth it. We would absolutely stay again with Mark and his family. He communicated really well with us, always making sure that we were being accommodated accordingly.
