Thank you so much! We had a fabulous time! The dunes
were fun! The kids had a great time and we couldn't get our golden, Sunny,
out of the lake!
The Day family
Thank you so much for sharing your lake house with our
family! We have many stories to share with our friends back home. The kids
are already planning the trip back here next year. Thanks so much.
We had a great time, very relaxing, dunes are awesome.
The Smith Family
It was a relaxing time! We are going home with lots of

It was peaceful and full of outdoor adventures for our young children. Best
The Mathison Family
Beautiful views, big lawn, enclosed yard + outfitted
Thanks for a great week. We really enjoyed your house
on the lake! I am sure we will be back- with the kids next time.
Had a great birthday weekend! Weather was awesome! Dunes
were great. Went to Mamma Mia's for Italian birthday dinner. The owner sang
happy birthday to me, then sat & talked to us. He's super nice This was the
second time having dinner there & the pasta is handmade by him. We love
this place, so quit & peacefull. Loved looking out on the lake in the AM &
seeing the mist coming off.
Adam & Eve, eat your
heart out. This place is paradise. the devil kept his apple to
himself and stayed out of here. Everything was perfect. thank you for
letting us stay here I am tired of sunshine and fires in California. I am
moving out here. The scenery here and everywhere we went is unreal.
2nd time this year! Thanks for the short notice. Had a
great time riding housefall/spinreal. Wish we had another day. Brought my
brother and Sis in law this time and 2 friends who always come with us. It
was an adult weekend and the end of our vacation. Nice way to end it. Back
to work tomorrow.
Slacks and friends
You haven't seen the last of our family! This is a
perfect place to relax.
A very lovely home. Thank you so much for letting us
enjoy it. Our 3 daughters actually got to see each other for 3 days. They
and their families live so far from each other. We were here together for
my 81st birthday. We enjoyed seeing places we used to bring our young
family to years ago. A little reminiscing as we drove around Lakeside,
Sunset Beach, and Whiskey Run Beach. Thank you so much.
Thank you so much. We had a wonderful time. I finally got
my boat ride around the lake then proceeded to fall off the dock. But the
best thing nobody had a camera so there's no proof. Please destroy this
after reading. Was surprised ti was too warm to really use the fireplace
much. Love exploring out here. Our Grand Daughter caught many fish off the
Mary and Jerry
Such a lovely home and so much to do, We just didn't have
enough time. We fished and caught crappie, perch and trout. Went to Shore
Acres, Simpson Park and Sunset Bay. Did some ATVing and loved everything
about staying here. We hope to come back and stay longer next time.
Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful house. We
had a great time. May God continue to bless you.
We had a great time, rocked the dunes and drank some
beer. Book us in for next year guys we're coming back! You have a very nice
home, it made our stay ten times more enjoyable than any of our previous
trip to Oregon. Thanks again and here's to the pavers breaking down!!
What a beautiful and peaceful place! We had such a
fulfilling time here and my daughters kept saying it was "awesome" here. My
only regret, if I had one, was in staying only four days.
Darin, Gabrielle, Lindsey
Very, Very peaceful place. The place was perfect for our
kids and our little pug! We loved the fenced yard, wooded area (kids loved
the slugs) and the lake. Thank you so much.
Jeff, Kelly, Sadie, Carlee, Colton and Chili Bean
Perfect vacation, perfect house! We enjoyed our stay
here. House is super clean and very comfortable. We did the rounds, eating
lots of crab and chowder, went fishing and boating, fed the geese and just
relaxed. thanks so much for the use of your house. Hope to stay here again.
Mike and Linda
Our five day stay was great, we rode the dunes for days,
fished Tenmile lake and went gold prospecting south of here on the Sixes
River. the house is everything you could want and more. We had a very, very
good time. I'm the Grandpa and my two grandsons with me are thirteen and
fourteen and this is our boys outing. We started this when the youngest was
three years old and try to do it every summer. This trip coming here was
one of the best and we will not forget the memories of this place and
Steve, Chandler, Zachary, Blaylock
What a fantastic way to start and end the day-looking out
at the lake! Perfect setting! We have enjoyed this part of the coast - the
Umpqua Discovery Center in Reedsport was a new find for us- great exhibits.
And we have always loved Shoreacres and Sunset Bay. Thanks for having such
a nice place available.
Fishing, Boating, campfires, quad and sandrailing, BBQ
grilling. What more could one ask for? Fantastic trip!
Seneys and Ashleys
Wonderful! Your house was such a great place to celebrate
our 22nd wedding anniversary with family and friends. It's so comfortable
and homey here. Thank you.
Shana and Joe
If only you could control the weather as well! No rain
but we did enjoy the clouds for what they are. We love staying at the
house. You've done such a nice job. See you next weekend!
This was our 2nd trip to North Bend but our first time
staying at your house and we really enjoyed it here! You have a great yard
and the house had plenty of room for all of us and our dog loved riding in
the canoe. thanks for sharing your great house with us, I'm sure we will be

Wonderful cabin with lots
of entertainment. We loved the trip & opportunity to enjoy the dunes.
Chelsea, Jim and Friends
Thank you for sharing
your nice home. We had a lovely stay. We will recommend your home to anyone
traveling to this area.
Laura and David
Thank you for sharing
your lakehouse with us. It has been a very enjoyable and relaxing week. Was
able to take the family on a couple of boat trips around the lake. The kids
really enjoyed that. this is our second family trip here and the kids are
already talking about coming back. Thanks again.
This is a piece of
heaven. You have blessed us both in sharing your retreat. Relax, refreshed
ready as much as one can be to have to go back home. We will call and come
back again very soon. God bless you and yours.
Mike and Suzi
What a great place! John
and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Teresa is super, she went way above and
beyond! Which she needed to do. Wouldn't hesitate to come again.
John and Mary Ann
We really enjoyed our
stay at Saunders Lake! My parents visited us for a couple of nights and
went home to Jefferson, Oregon. They loved it here too! We basically kicked
back and really relaxed and enjoyed the cabin and all its charm. We are
definitely coming back!!! Thank you for sharing your getaway with us.
Benny and Jette
We celebrated our 30th
anniversary here at the cabin with my brother & family who live in
Reedsport. Rode ATV's in the sand dunes, really fun! The house is beautiful
& we hope to return again.
Gregg & Nancy
Thank youfor sharing your
wonderful cabin with us! We had a great time fishing. However, "the big
one" eluded our efforts this time around. Of course staying up until 1:00
AM watching the Olympics each night probably didn't help our fishing
efforts. Thank you again.
The Glegg Family
We stayed in the cabin
for almost two weeks and enjoyed it enormously. Fishing was excellent in
the lake. We also enjoyed going to the coast for hiking and crabbing. Thank
Another fantastic time at
your place! The fishing was better than ever (My boys claim 29). The
weather was awesome, so we were able to ride all day and then come back
here and relax. Such a great time with our kids(7,9 + 15 yrs). Great
memories for all.
The Garza Family
We've been here several
times ~ this is our favorite place to stay. The house is perfect and the
yard is amazing
Happy Camp, CA
We had such a nice time a
tour lakeside home!! It is very beautiful, peaceful and relaxing here. Our
two dogs had so much fun swimming in the lake. They also spent a lot of
time playing on the lawn and snoozing in the sun. This house is really
comfortable and we look forward to coming back.
Kendra, Dennis, Blue and Junior
Our fifth trip and we love the new fence and washer
and dryer! The kids loved the bunkhouse. We will be back!
Kevin and Stephanie
We found the house to be much more than we
expected. We had a blast riding around in the jeep my brother brought. My
husband and I took the boat out and then we drifted back to the dock ans
started catching fish right and left the rest of the day. He had a blast.
It was hard to get my husband away from the dock to leave. Thanks so much.
Bob, Jody, Tobi, Bob
Really enjoyed the cottage + lake. The
fishing was slow, but the 28 inch rainbow trout I caught off the dock is
the largest I have ever caught! Will email a pic after I download my
camera. Hope to come back again.
John & Susan
Thank you for sharing your nice home with
us. It was so nice and peaceful. You really have a beautiful piece of
property. The view of the lake was awesome. I (Anne) even caught some fish.
Gary and Anne
Mac and Brit
We loved staying in the home! We had a
great campfire in the ring which made it feel like camping but then got to
come back into a clean, comfortable bed. We enjoyed being so close to the
dunes, I even rowed over to the dunes that touch the lake for a beautiful
view of spinreel. Thank you for providing a wonderful coastal retreat.
Daniel & Jessica
Jim & Kathy
Randy & Thai
Thank you for letting us use your house!
It's a very nice & peaceful setting. We had a great 4 days with ATV riding,
feeding the ducks & celebrating our husbands birthdays. We'll be back later
The week went way to fast. The birding was
great on the first couple of rainy days. The dunes were great, both on ATV
and foot. The boys enjoyed themselves. They also discovered swimming in
April when the water is 50˚F is probably not
the smartest move, even for $5. The house was cozy and the location
excellent. Thanks again.
John W & Boys
We had a
super time. The weather was great all but one day - how lucky for March!
Great place to spend our last hurrah before the oldest heads off to school.
Thanks for allowing us to share your home for a little
while. We appreciated the warm welcoming fire when we arrived! Loved
watching the Wood Ducks nesting on the property, must be something to see
when those ducklings take to the water.
Thank you for letting us use your beautiful lake
house. We will return soon. The weather was nice both Saturday & Sunday.
That's lucky for March in Oregon! Thanks again for a wonderful time.
Amber & friends
Nice retreat. Perfect
place to relax and then do a little planning.

It's Sunday and we have to leave. We had a great stay
even though it has stormed the whole time. We boated in the rain & wind and
we rode our ATV's in the rain. And we had a great time. All the kids want
to come here for their birthdays!
Tracy, Patrick, Nicole, Don, Emily, Terrence
We had a wonderful time in this warm cozy house. A

We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the lake. What a great
location and beautiful scenery.
Ric & Debra
We really enjoyed everything about our stay at your
lake home. It is such a peaceful location and the house is so rooming yet
cozy. Having the boats was really special and our boys can't wait till the
bunkhouse is ready on our next visit to the dunes. It was their first ATV
riding trip and they can't wait to come back. Thanks for sharing with us.
We really loved the fire pit also!!

Thank you very much for sharing your home - It was
great! The kids really enjoyed looking at all of the golf balls and the
boats. It was a short stay, but memorable!
Loved our stay here! The kids had a blast fishing

Very cozy inside. Definitely plan to return when we come back to go 4
