Rustic Cabins amid Willamette National Forest

Oregon’s Willamette National Forest stretches across 110 miles along the western slopes of the Cascade Mountains, encompassing more than a million acres of cedar and fir trees, alpine streams, and waterfalls. The town of Vida lies on the western outskirts of the forest, just 40 miles east of Eugene. Nestled on 6 rustic acres, the resort is an ideal base from which to explore Oregon.

The homey waterside cabins are equipped with full kitchens and overstuffed sofas. Cabin 4 was recently renovated, and like all cabins now includes a deep soaking tub. Head to the game room for ping-pong and air hockey, or venture outside to play horseshoes or volleyball.

In the colder months, guests can visit Fish Lake, located roughly 30 miles away, passing 19th-century pioneer cabins along the way. For quality fishing, the Blue River—so named because the rocks in the riverbed seem to tint the water—is the place to go to catch rainbow trout and steelhead salmon.

Vida, Oregon: Forested Mountain Town near Skiing and Hot Springs

Just 40 miles east of Eugene, the small town of Vida lies in the western range of the Cascade Mountains near the border of Willamette National Forest. The surrounding McKenzie River Valley is a haven for lovers of the outdoors. Come winter, the Hoodoo ski area in nearby Sisters is a hive of activity, with 32 ski and snowboard runs and a tubing park. You can go for an après-ski soak at Terwilliger Hot Springs, where clothing is optional. When the weather warms up, popular pursuits include whitewater rafting, horseback riding, fishing, and golfing at the Tokatee Golf Club, which boasts views of the Three Sisters Mountains from the greens.
