A lovely spot along the McKenzie River - and wonderful sleeping in a nice, clean cabin beside the creek. Sit on the deck with a cup of coffee and take in the lush surroundings. Furnished well so you can prepare meals. Take your fishing rod and catch a few👍

This place was wonderful! Hard to explain but I was able to completely relax the entire time due to the cleanliness and tranquility of the grounds while my son stayed active with all of the family activities the entire time. We stayed in cabin 8, it was super clean and quiet with a great deck looking over the creek. I...

Picture a rustic setting beside a babbling brook which leads into a beautiful, clear river full of trout. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed staying in one of the well equipped cabins located on this beautifully maintained property buzzing with humming birds and butterflies plus a bald eagle or two flying by overhead. If you ever get...

Had a great couple of days at the Wayfarer Resort. Grounds and gardens are definitely resort quality, but family run so it is friendly and personable. Cabins are clean and set far enough apart for privacy and on the stream and river.

Quiet and relaxing. Kids had fun. Space between cabins was nice. Room was clean and had a full kitchen, back porch looked over the river, it was beautiful. Porch had charcoal BBQ. The atmosphere was remarkable! Cabin has most kitchen appliances needed, including a coffee pot and microwave. Bring your own spices, sugar, ect. Also if you are here for...

A weekend "board" meeting with a group of women. A little wine, tons of food, fire warming the evening, the eagle swooping the river for breakfast...just a very lovely space to relax! If you are accustomed to valet parking or vip treatment, try somewhere else, but if you appreciate lovely down to earth hosts who are wonderful and scenery to...

We have used the Wayfarer Resort for a retreat location for over a decade. Our group loves having training and team building in Cabin 13 and breaking out into the smaller cabins to focus on team-specific brainstorming and projects. The location is beautiful and the cabins are very nice. Traveling from Eugene/Springfield makes it feel like a short trip away...

When we arrived it was very cold weather but they warm the room up for us in advance. The studies are spacious and welcoming with a cabin feel. It's a great place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone!

The property IS paradise. Clean, comfortable and the bed was amazing. My disappointment is that the website is not clear. When they say "fireplace", they mean gas-burning stove. I reserved this for my honeymoon and the fireplace was a MUST for me. When I called in my reservation I was told that there would be a bottle of wine waiting...

I am so sorry that you were bummed about the propane fireplace. Only three places have propane fireplaces and if I had know I would have moved you to one of those. If you are ever back in our area you will be complimented with a bottle of wine, so please remind me. One thing about our ReVozation program there...
