House rules
The host doesn’t allow pets, parties, or smoking.
The Ponderosa cabin is part of House on Metolius, a private resort and nature reserve on the pristine Metolius River. Enjoy views of Mount Jefferson across the natural meadow, and the gentle arc of the river as it traverses the property. The cabin itself features a bedroom with a king-sized bed. From the sitting area or the private deck, you can hear the Metolius River tumbling through the gorge below.

The space
The best part of staying at House on Metolius is the two-hundred plus acres of private nature reserve . With only a limited number of cabins on the property, you'll find plenty of space to go for a stroll along the river, wander through forest and just relax and enjoy the views.

Guest access
Only registered guests are allowed on the property. You will receive a gate code with the check-in information. You will find plenty of room to roam on the 200-acres of House on Metolius.

Other things to note
Smoking
House on Metolius is located in a forested area, and many of the structures are wooden cabins, so fire hazard is something that we take very seriously. No smoking is allowed inside any of the buildings, and we ask that guests also avoid smoking in the surrounding forested areas. Smoking is allowed outside, but must be at least ten feet from public facilities, lodges and other facilities. Smoking in a guest room or building will incur an automatic damage and cleaning fee of $250.

Pet Policy
Due to the potential for conflict with wildlife, we do not allow pets on the property at House on Metolius.

Fly Fishing
The Metolius River is fly-fishing only on this stretch of river. Equipment, flies and fishing licenses can be obtained at the nearby Camp Sherman store, or let us arrange for a full or half day of guided fishing on the property (please give us a few days advance notice to make sure that one of our guides is available).

Internet and Cell Coverage
The Metolius Basin has very limited cell coverage—you’ll typically get one or two bars, and occasionally no coverage at all. Text messages generally work with only one bar, so that is a good option. You can also use WiFi calling when you are on the property.

The Internet connection here at House on Metolius is also somewhat limited, certainly compared to the average 80-90 Mbps connection one sees many places. We are limited (by the telephone company) to a single T1 line for the entire property—that is 1.5 Mbps up/down. The WiFi coverage is good around all of the cabins and at the Main House, so if you are having trouble, the problem probably isn’t the WiFi, but rather simply that Internet connection isn’t that fast, and there may be other guests using it at the same time.

Perhaps surprisingly, this is usually good enough for many applications—even video calls, screen sharing, etc. It isn’t great for streaming movies (or downloading large updates), so if you may want to download those in advance and bring them with you.

On the whole, our guests usually find that there are a lot of ‘offline’ things to enjoy here at House on Metolius—this is definitely a nice place to curl up with a good book or simply enjoy the view. We do hope you enjoy your stay with us here on the river!

Location

Camp Sherman, Oregon, United States

House on Metolius is surrounded by millions of acres of wilderness, and there is plenty to do outside: fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, golf, rock climbing and rafting, just to name a few. Or just put your feet up, relax and enjoy the views.

There is a small general store in Camp Sherman—that also makes very tasty sandwiches!
