Welcome to Casa Nirvana: This home is nestled within the beautiful green and lush banks of the Little North Fork of the Santiam River; only a few miles from the Oregon Cascade Mountain Range and the beautiful secluded Elkhorn Valley.
The Santiam River Valley provides an activity or adventure for everyone. Hikers can explore the Opal Creek Wilderness and Scenic Recreation Area with its miles of trails through the ancient forests and along the incredibly beautiful crystal clear streams. Golfers can enjoy spending the day on the world class 18 hole Elkhorn Valley Golf Course, only 20 minutes from the property.
Kayakers will find The Little North Fork River “put in” close by with options to start much higher in the Opal Creek area; 'pull out' right in front of the house. This river is known for some of the best kayaking in the state. White water rafting is also available on the North Santiam near Detroit. For the fisherman the options are many.
Vacationers can explore nearby parks with ample picnic areas, visit local waterfalls, spend the day swimming, admire the views and wildlife or simply relaxing by the river.
Within 30 to 60 MINUTES of Casa Nirvana you can visit:
The Oregon Garden, Silver Falls State Park, Opal Creek Wilderness, Mt. Jefferson Wilderness, Hot Springs, wine tasting, Detroit Lake, Mt. Hoodoo and SO MUCH MORE...
If you prefer, simply enjoy relaxing at the house. The bank of the beautiful Little North Fork river is only steps from the door. Please note: The river rises and falls with the amount of rainfall in the area. It is not dam controlled.

I love everything about nature and the beautiful out of doors.

I visited beautiful Silver Falls State Park several years ago and fell in love with this area. I purchased this house so I could come here when ever time would permit. I don't like the house to sit unused; sharing it with others who appreciate and respect the tranquil, rare beauty of this area makes me very happy.

Thank you so much for the great service! We loved staying at Casa Nirvana and found it to be super clean and very relaxing. The treats in the fridge made our whole family thrilled.
We spent three beautiful nights at Northfork Santiam River Home. Could not be happier with the entire experience. There were lights on and the pellet stove was going when we arrived. The directions to get to the house were right on and we had no trouble finding it. It was so quiet there that the river was the only noise we heard.
Starting with our contact with the owner, all went better than could have been expected. Including getting us in one night early due to a very bad experience with a different house we had rented nearer Salem. The house was spotless, warm and comfortable. The master bedroom had a wonderfully comfortable king bed and you can hear the river from inside. Even though it was a little chilly, we still left the sliding glass door open so we could really hear it. Nice, nice.
Two bathrooms were wonderful and there is a second bedroom on the first floor. The furnishings are very nice. We were impressed with everything.
The home gives you the feeling of being out in the wild but it is actually only a couple of miles from grocery stores and some places to eat. And only about 20 miles and you are in Salem. We also took a drive over to Lincoln City and Depoe Bay on the coast for the day. Easy drive from the house. Just perfect for us. We would and have recommended this home to friends.
Thank you Cindy for allowing us to rent your beautiful home!!!
My boyfriend and I traveled from Columbus, OH to Oregon without any definite plans of where we were going to stay and when. I found this house on VRBO and decided to give it a shot based on the location. We wanted to be close to the mountains, but not so far from Portland that we'd have to drive forever to get back to the airport. The owner, Cindy, was incredibly quick and helpful with her email responses, and got us in quickly. The house is located right on the river, just as depicted in the photos, and is even more beautiful in person. It was much larger than we expected, and for the price was a great deal. It's location allows for peace and privacy, yet is not so far off the beaten path that you have to travel very far from the nearest highway. The house was STOCKED. Pretty much anything and everything you could ask for was supplied. There were beach towels, dvds, and even a basement practically full of board games. This would be a great place for a family to stay for a few nights! The house was incredibly clean and well decorated. Cindy even supplied a little binder with information on what to do and see in the area. We went and hiked at Opal Creek, which was gorgeous! Thanks again for everything. We had such a good time.
My husband and I live a little less than an hour away. I decided to seek out a house on a river for our vacation because of how peaceful it can be. This house absolutely fit that bill. When you arrive you sort of feel like you’re driving through a jungle to get to the house. As soon as we stepped out of the car we could hear the chatter of the busy river. It was mesmerizing. The first thing we did was take our bags inside, grab a glass of wine and lawn chairs from the deck then headed out to sit right on the private river rock bank. The next day when my mom arrived we sat on the deck for hours enjoying the view and each other’s company. My father-in-law showed up the next day with his fishing pole. We could hardly get him back in the house. They weren’t going to stay the night, but he wanted to try fishing again early the next morning so we couldn’t say no. This house has tons of personality. It’s a little quirky, but that really was part of the charm. The kitchen is very well stocked. If you forget any toiletries it wasn’t an issue as there were lots of extras if needed. The master bedroom and front room have incredible views as well. We slept like babies on the memory foam mattress. It was so comfortable. There is great information at the house for where to explore in the area. We absolutely enjoyed our hike to the waterfall that was only a few miles away (can’t remember the name) & we also visited Opal Creek. You have to go check out 3 Pools. It’s not even a hike as you can park right there. You won’t forget the beautiful colors. Thank you for sharing your comfy home with us Cindy.
We absolutely loved our stay at this house. The home was in immaculate shape. No vacation rental we have stayed in before even compares to this one. You could tell the owner and property manager really care about this property, and work hard to ensure it is kept clean. There are plenty of wonderful hikes within a few miles of the front door, and getting to Portland from this home was a breeze. The master suite was amazing, we really enjoyed waking up to a spectacular view of the river. I would highly recommend this house to anyone who enjoys the outdoors or simply likes relaxing.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The waterfall and river provided an especially soothing affect. So peaceful. The house was very clean and every attention to detail was special. Fresh daffodils through out the house. Sweets and treats. A very nice place. We will be back! Thank you. April 2012
I just needed a place to spend a couple nights between ski trips; this was the perfect place between Salem, Portland and Bend; little did I know that it would be a slice of heaven on earth! I arrived after sunset and had no idea what I would wake up to; what a shock, the river is incredible, and the views from every window are unreal… just the sound of it puts you right to sleep at night. One added huge bonus is how spotless this house is. My wife is a clean freak and I know this place would pass her white glove test. Next time I’m bringing my wife, Casa Nirvana is a perfect place to celebrate an anniversary or a special occasion.
Casa Nirvana is only 8 miles from Stayton where you will find ample grocery stores, a hospital and other full amenities, including a movie theater. The large city of Salem is 20 miles away. Beautiful Silver Falls State Park and Opal Creek Wilderness Area are about a half hour drive from the house.
