Recent McKenzie River vacation rental reviews

Renee's Cabin was a beautiful clean log cabin perfect for my small woodsy setting wedding. The large kitchen was great for cooking and entertaining our guests. The bedrooms were immaculate with very comfortable beds. The grounds were very manicured and beautiful with lots of trees and a relaxing setting. The owner definitely pays attention to details and went out of there way to make sure everything was the best experience for my wedding day. We also enjoyed the river deck access in the back. We were able to get some lovely photos. Our stay is one that will always be remembered and we hope to come back again to have more fond memories.
