Garbage day is Thursday.


Train/road noise? The Westfir/Oakridge area is on the main line of a major railroad. The City of Westfir is within a "no whistle zone" so train noise is limited- however you will still hear the train, especially the heavy freight trains going uphill.We are on the main road through town and there can be some traffic noise from time to time.

Is the cottage a place for guests with young children? Due to proximity to road and river guests with young children should be advised to be extra vigilant.

The house is yours to enjoy with a washing machine, fully functional kitchen, towels and linens and cozy furniture. Oakridge is a larger town a few minutes by car away, with more stores and restaurants and amenities. You will have the place to yourselves, we will be just an email or phone call away.

The Neighborhood:

The Cottage is in Westfir a tiny logging town of almost 300 surrounded by beautiful National Forest. The office covered bridge- the longest covered bridge in Oregon- is located here. The north fork of the middle fork of the Willamette river is designated “Wild and Scenic” just past the bridge. The Aufderheide scenic byway starts here too.

What to do? All sorts of two wheel fun-mountain, road and motor biking. The famous Alpine mountain bike trail overlooks the cottage. Huckleberry flats OHV area has over 30 miles of trails for both motorcycles and ATVs. You can also enjoy hiking, boating, birding, hunting, fishing and kayaking.

Visit Oakridge a short 4 miles where you can have a great micro brew in the trendy uptown area. Rent a bicycle or dine on pizza, burgers and some of the best Chinese food in the state(Lee's) -and don't forget the deli at Ray's food place for something tasty to go. Take a drive to McCredie Hot Springs and Salt Creek Falls they are just up the hill on Highway 58. Bring or rent a kayak and drive to Waldo Lake to see the clear blue water.

Fly fishing is open year around with best fishing in May/June and September according to local and blog sources. Just internet search- North Fork of the Middle Fork of the Willamette River- for more information.

"Fishing regulations for the North Fork are as follows: Any angler over the age of 12 is required to possess a current angling license. The North Fork is open year round to fly fishing with a barbless hook only. Reels and barbed hooks are illegal. Daily catch is limited to 2 wild trout that are a minimum of 8 inches long. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has detailed information and regulations at or call. Please remember to keep our rivers clean and safe. Remove any trash, glass etc. to keep the area safe for swimmers and fish alike. Do not allow your children to be near the river without supervision and proper safety equipment. Please keep in mind that the river runs through residential areas and voices do carry.(from the City of Westfir newsletter)"

Notes
About the Cottage- Feel free to request a special offer for shorter or longer stays that don't quite fit the airbnb pricing calendar. We like comfortable chairs to relax in watch a movie or television. We love having a dishwasher to get our dishes clean and a nice bathtub to have a soak. We think you will too. Check out our pictures and see if you don't agree that we prioritize comfort above all. Oh yes price... We think we our cottage is a great value. The River Cottage was the first privately owned home in Westfir built by Harry in the 1920's. Grandpa Harry was a saw filer for the Westfir Lumber Company- later purchased by Hines- He hand selected the best lumber from the mill and built most of the house himself. When we had the new windows put in the workers were amazed how square and straight the opening were. Harry and Mildred raised two children in the this small home. They were simple people who had lived through the depression and rarely threw anything away. Harry had a large garden and Mildred canned or froze the produce. Their son James was the first in the family to attend college in Eugene at UofO. After graduation he came back to Westfir and worked as a manager for the mill eventually becoming mill manager. From the time our kids were little they just loved coming up to the cottage. One of our favorite pastimes in sitting on the front porch and watching the many bikers and motor-bikers go by. It's a great spot to watch the traffic go by. Julie
