not your average fishin’ hole

House on Metolius — Camp Sherman, Oregon

A view to die for! The perfect spot for a wedding. And in fact, many people do get married right here. But it is also an amazing place for a romantic escape, a business retreat or best of all, a fishing vacation if you’re into that kind of thing. Whatever the reason you may go, the House on Metolius is like a dream — almost like Brigadoon when the clouds form around the basin as they are known to do.

Located along a private stretch of the Metolius River (known to be the best half mile for Bull Trout fishing in the world) this beautiful private home recently turned small resort, allows lucky guests to see just what this stretch of river has to offer — along with the rest of the almost 200 acres of private land located in the midst of Central Oregon public forest.

But beauty isn’t all there is on offer:  A lovely staff; meals cooked with local ingredients by the resident chef; sustainable practices throughout the resort which boasts 7 guest rooms in the main lodge and several free standing lodges & cabins dotted around the property that are rustic and luxurious all at once. Don’t miss the charming general store a short walk down the road where you can pick up a jar of locally made preserves. Or head by car to the town of Sisters or further into Bend, OR for more local treats.

While a warm and lovely resort, you never lose sight of the fact this was once somebody’s home — family photos and history adorn the walls, and an interesting history it is. I had the pleasure of meeting the multi-generational family and staying here recently. My only regret was I didn’t get to stay longer — oh and maybe, too, that I didn’t have someone special with me to share that spectacular view.
