Recycling/Septic- We are on a septic so please nothing but waste and tp. Westfir has limited curbside recycling (bin on back porch) we encourage you to take your recyclables home if possible. Thank you :)

Garbage day is Thursday.


Train/road noise? The Westfir/Oakridge area is on the main line of a major railroad. The City of Westfir is within a "no whistle zone" so train noise is limited- however you will still hear the train, especially the heavy freight trains going uphill. We are on the main road through town and there can be some traffic noise from time to time.

Is the cottage a place for guests with young children? Due to proximity to road and river guests with young children should be advised to be extra vigilant. The path to river is hilly and graveled. Those with mobility issues will need to take extra care. Please contact us with questions.

The house is yours to enjoy with a washing machine, fully functional kitchen, towels and linens and cozy furniture. Oakridge is a larger town a few minutes by car away, with more stores and restaurants and amenities. You will have the place to yourselves, we will be just an email or phone call away.

The Neighborhood:

The Cottage is in Westfir a tiny logging town of almost 300 surrounded by beautiful National Forest. The office covered bridge- the longest covered bridge in Oregon- is located here. The north fork of the middle fork of the Willamette river is designated “Wild and Scenic” just past the bridge. The Aufderheide scenic byway starts here too.

What to do? All sorts of two wheel fun-mountain, road and motor biking. The famous Alpine mountain bike trail overlooks the cottage. Huckleberry flats OHV area has over 30 miles of trails for both motorcycles and ATVs. You can also enjoy hiking, boating, birding, hunting, fishing and kayaking.

Visit Oakridge a short 4 miles where you can have a great micro brew in the trendy uptown area. Rent a bicycle or dine on pizza, burgers and some of the best Chinese food in the state(Lee's) -and don't forget the deli at Ray's food place for something tasty to go. Take a drive to McCredie Hot Springs and Salt Creek Falls they are just up the hill on Highway 58. Bring or rent a kayak and drive to Waldo Lake to see the clear blue water.

Fly fishing is open year around with best fishing in May/June and September according to local and blog sources. Just internet search- North Fork of the Middle Fork of the Willamette River- for more information.

"Fishing regulations for the North Fork are as follows: Any angler over the age of 12 is required to possess a current angling license. The North Fork is open year round to fly fishing with a barbless hook only. Reels and barbed hooks are illegal. Daily catch is limited to 2 wild trout that are a minimum of 8 inches long. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has detailed information and regulations at or call. Please remember to keep our rivers clean and safe. Remove any trash, glass etc. to keep the area safe for swimmers and fish alike. Do not allow your children to be near the river without supervision and proper safety equipment. Please keep in mind that the river runs through residential areas and voices do carry.(from the City of Westfir newsletter)"

2021 Westfir River Cottage Update:

I'm sure everyone is ready for some sun and warmer weather!

Last year (2020) we started a major update and addition on the Cottage. We added a family room with a view of the river and a wonderful new bathroom with a custom tile shower. The master bedroom was gutted, rebuilt and expanded to allow enough space for a new KING bed, the kitchen was opened up and new granite tile countertops installed. Photos of the remodel are on the Westfir River Cottage Facebook page. It’s been a labor of love :)

We are a real owner managed vacation rental- we stay here too and we welcome your suggestions for improvement. We want you to have a great time and want to earn your 5 star review- they allow us to make the cottage available for rental. Please let us know asap if there is anything out of place during your stay so we can take action.

We moved the lock-box to a permanent location next to the back door on the house rather than on the door knob. It is just the right of the door. Also some small new signs that have the address and “Westfir River Cottage” Just to make sure that you know you are in the right spot.

Local businesses include a Dollar General store that's open in Oakridge- this is where the only REDBOX is located in town. Rays supermarket is still the best full service grocery store with an excellent deli department. The local bike shop, Willamette Mountain Mercantile, is a great resource to help with planning and supplies. Deep Woods Distillery is now open for tastings- it's located on 1st street in the uptown area, open Fri-Sun. Also in Uptown- the brew pub has new owners and renamed-The 3 legged Crane Pub and Brewhouse -has wonderful outdoor seating and fantastic food. Rim Nam Thai Cafe on 58 in Oakridge is good and caters to special diets. The Lion Mountain Bakery is a great local restaurant to grab breakfast and coffee open till 1:00 and now serving a Friday night dinner too. Find them all on Facebook in the pages liked by the Westfir River Cottage.

Our WiFi has recently been upgraded and is working really well.

Fly fishing is open year around with best fishing in June and September according to local and blog sources. Just google search- North Fork of the Middle Fork of the Willamette River- for more information.

Our area is all about the outdoors and all sorts of two wheel fun-mountain, road and motor biking. The famous Alpine mountain bike trail overlooks the cottage- bring your own bike or rent one in Oakridge.. Huckleberry flats OHV area has over 30 miles of trails for both motorcycles and ATV s. You can also enjoy hiking, boating, birding, hunting, fishing and kayaking.

Visit Oakridge a short 4 miles where you can have a great microbrew in the trendy uptown area.The brew pub has a new owner and is now “The 3 Legged Crane Pub and Brewhouse”.

Just relaxing at the river is probably the best way to enjoy the day!

We love sharing the Westfir/Oakridge area with others. This place has unbelievable natural beauty. From fishing,hiking, biking, kayaking, to just relaxing with a favorite beverage stay and enjoy the foothills of the Western Cascade Mountains. Our family loves to hike and kayak. We sit on the front porch and watch the world go by. In the evening we love the New Family room and telling stories of the day.
