My wife and I moved to Oregon in 2002 and fell in love with the area. We enjoy hiking, rafting, boating, skiing, camping and the ocean. Fortunately, we live in a small town area that allows us to enjoy all of these things.
Curt Wallis purchased this cottage in 2002
We added the cottage on our property so others could enjoy the peace and quiet of our property and still be close enough to explore many different areas of Oregon.
Curt's Place is located in the small town of Gates, Oregon close to many activities you can enjoy during your stay. Detroit Lake, North Santiam River, Elkhorn Golf Course, Santiam Horse Camp, Breitenbush Hot Springs, Opal Creek Ancient Forest, dozens of State / Federal / County Parks in the North Santiam Canyon area and a short drive to Hoodoo Ski Bowl.

This is a perfect place for a peaceful break. Everything was as described: clean, quiet, and very comfortable. As others have noted, this is a guest house within a residential area, but it felt very secluded, and was very easy to get lost in the sounds of the river and gorgeous outside room/patio area! The sauna was a fun and relaxing bonus. Curt was extremely nice and helpful, offering tips on how to get to local restaurants and hiking spots. I would highly recommend Curt's place, and intend to return the next time I need a little R&R.
My husband and I stayed here last week and it far exceeded our expectations, so much attention to detail with guest satisfaction and privacy. Here are some highlights.
1. The living space and bedroom were all very clean (not just clean but immaculate) and comfortable.
2. The rope lights around the deck was a nice touch and very helpful in the evening.
3. Loved having a timer for the fire pit and outdoor lighting.
4. Sleeping with the sound of the river is truly amazing (locking screen door).
5. The deck was such a beautiful place for your morning coffee.
6. We were truly spoiled with the sauna and am now convinced that we need one at home.
7. Even though you're in close proximity with the owners our whole stay was very private.
8. The fairy garden and the book written by Granny Fran for her grandchildren was just amazing.
9. Short drive to the Opal Pool.
Thank you so much for sharing your space with us and we'll be back for sure!
I wish we would have more time to enjoy this awesome little home away from home! Curt was very friendly, helpful, and informative on different things in the area. Thank you so much ! We hope to return :-)
Curt's Place is in a beautiful forest setting, the river is gorgeous and the sound of it spilling over the rocks will lull anyone to calmness. The cottage itself was great, it's decorated in a lovely way, even better than the pictures. We used the cottage as a base to explore the area as far east as Detroit and west to Mill City. It was perfect and we couldn't have been more comfortable. Curt was great and full of helpful information. We would highly recommend Curt's Place to anyone!
Such a clean, beautiful, charming place to get away and stay! Great price, good location, surprisingly private. Curt and Phyllis thought of everything to make the place extra comfortable and inviting. Nothing but good to say about our stay!!
Stayed here with my hubby and we absolutely loved the place and plan on returning in the future when we can stay longer! It is so peaceful there amongst the woods and by the river! The cottage is very big and roomy and has everything you'd want. Nicely decorated, too. Plenty of linens provided. The full kitchen is a big plus. Cute planted area outside, too, with both decorative touches and whimsical ones! The area around Curt's place has an abundance of wonderful natural areas to explore: rivers, lakes, waterfalls, fishing, hiking, climbing small mt. peaks, very close to Santium Forest, Silver Falls State Park with 10 waterfalls, cute town of Silverton and the Oregon Gardens, and the Stayton-Jordan Covered Bridge in Pioneer Park in Stayton. We hiked to the Sherburg Falls (3 miles) and you can both walk behind the falls and go down to the pool at the bottom of the falls there! Same thing at Silver Falls State Park: 1 waterfall you can see from the roadside viewpoint, a few waterfalls that are a short walk, and then 3 longer hikes (2 - 3 miles each hike) to other areas with a number of waterfalls, some you can walk behind the falls at. Not too far from Salem and wineries, too. There are a few McMenamin's Historic Pubs in Salem: Boon's Treasury Pub & Thompson Brewery & Public House (We LOVE the historic McMenamin's locations). There's also an old fashioned A&W in Stayton with great Mushroom Grilled Onion Burgers and smoothies, and you can substitute a dinner salad that is very big and good for the fries at no extra charge and of course A&W Rootbeer!! There are a number of restaurants and cafes and a bakery not too far away from Curt's Place within about 3 miles. Curtis a great guy! Enjoyed our visit with him! Can't picture someone being disappointed if they stayed here. We really loved our stay and onlyb wish we could have stayed longer, but had to get home and back to work and volunteering, so had to leave the next day. We will return, though!
