First of all:


OK, now on to the recommendations:

Eagle Rock Lodgejust East of Eugene/Springfield, OR.  This was one of the splurge options for us but can you say worth it!!!!!!!  The lodge itself is amazing.  It sits right on the McKenzie River.  The property is breathtaking.  We stayed in the Damsel Fly room and it was perfect for our family.  We had a separate room and the boys slept in the living room on a hide-a-bed.  They were big on making sure to do all the wonderful touches that make a big difference.  For example at night they have smore buckets and a nice cozy fire by the river, fuzzy socks to wear around the room, and fresh cookies to greet you as well.  And then came breakfast!!  Oh my!!!  Fresh baked scones and fruit, followed up by an egg dish with a homemade peach mango salsa I believe.  Anyways it was delicious.  If you get in this area you have to stay here.  My husband was ready to move in.  And the owners were as friendly as can be!!!!

(This is a covered bridge just a few miles west of the lodge.)

Here is their website if you ever want a chance for a great getaway!!

Since this review was so long, I will continue with Oregon tomorrow.

Have a “Berrylicious” Day
