We used to plan a trip to these cabins every year. The McKenzie is my favorite river - it's always beautiful and cold. Fished it since I was a boy. The cabins here are wonderfully laid out and very close to the river. It's close to the Scenic McKenzie hwy., Clear Lake. Perfect in every regard, BUT awhile back we stayed in our favorite cabin only to wake up the next day and find the kitchen crawling with ants! Not the little sugar ants, not carpenter ants but the medium sized ones. They were all through the bedroom, in the carpet, our luggage and clothes. It was awful. We couldn't eat there because ants were all through our food. We got out of there as soon as possible, cutting our stay short. I complained to the owner (lady) and she said "yeah, they've been a problem, but we sprayed just before you got there!" So they knew about them and didn't tell us, didn't take care of the problem, didn't offer us another cabin, a refund or even a discount on a return trip! We had ants crawling all over us and our car all the way home. I'll never go back and encourage anyone I know thinking of staying up the McKenzie to go to Holiday Farms or any of the many other options.
