McKenzie River Lodge Rental Photos and Description
House & Apartment rented separately. 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 7-13)
Our home is located on the sunny North side of the river with a large deck and huge yard for sunbathing and entertaining.
Need to accommodate a larger group? We now have our apartment available with sleeping space for up to six more people with rates starting at $95/night.
Enjoy fishing? Our property is located at the mouth of Gate Creek on one of the finest trout fishing holes on the river.
Enjoy a tasty hatchery trout supper? Fry your fish on the grated firepit at the river or cook them on the Traeger Smoker on the riverfront deck. Please handle all wild fish gently before returning them to the river.
Our property is on one of the larger lots on the river. Over an acre of grass borders Gate Creek and the Mckenzie.
Volleyball, croquet, bocci ball, badminton, soccer, tossing a football or frisbee? You would be hard pressed to find a better location anywhere!
Our asphalt driveway provides plenty of space for an RV or your toys, with a plug in off the gargage/apartment on the driveway.
Our family retreat for the last 26 years...we are offering it for the first time in 2011 .
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and trust you will!
Why the Owner Chose McKenzie River: It was originally our home. Raised my first four children here before life changes and work demands drew me away...
Wish we were there now ;^)
The Unique Benefits at this House: An incredibly large yard well off the highway makes for an incredible location for retreats or getting away with family and friends.
We are blessed to have outstanding fishing right on the property, with a private raft take out just above Leaburg Lake which allows access to several more great rapids after the normal takeout below Marten Rapids...

About Charles Prince
My name is Charles Prince. I am married to an incredible woman and partner in life Kelly...
My family and I have been blessed to own our Mckenzie River home for almost 30 years now.
A career change neccessitated we move to the valley--but the river is always in our heart.
We welcome you to experience the magic of the Mckenzie for yourself--but I must warn you! The experience is highly addictive :)
As you will see our hearts are in it 3
Charles Prince purchased this lodge in 1985
Why Charles Prince chose McKenzie River
I ran a large fishing and rafting business from the property for many years. It is the perfect location for a raft takeout or fish fry on the river.
The large yard is an excellent place to raise and wear out children. Guess I took that to heart--we have six!
What makes this lodge unique
With over an acre of grass and 400 feet of river and creek frontage far from the Mckenzie Highway--our home is the ideal location to truly get away from it all...
Guestbook comments from the owner
2013 was a fantastic year on the river, but a very sad one for our family.
The exciting changes to the home we had been planning finally came to fruition with the addition of the vaulted ceilings, new covered front porch and refurbished covered deck.
The availability of the newly refurbished apartment expanded occupancy and has been a real hit with our guests as well.
All of the excitement was tempered however by the loss of my Mom in Spring and Kelly's Dad in late summer.
Kelly and I are looking forward to a wonderful, and hopefully less stressful 2014!
Here's wishing all our former and future guest's all the best in this new year!
