About the Owner

I am a well-established dentist in Salem, Oregon, having graduated dental school at the University of Minnesota in 1970. I grew up primarily in Montana and Washington where I loved to fish in my spare time. My wife, Paula, was an 'Air-Force brat' who lived all over the U.S. and in England for a couple of years. I met my lovely wife at the University of Minnesota and we have three wonderful children, now grown. My wife and I built our log home just outside of Gates in 2006 as our primary residence, however after a couple of years, decided to move back to Salem to be closer to our family and many grandchildren. We have since used our log home as a get-a-way for family & friends and more recently as a rental property. Our home is very large with an open floor plan but surprisingly 'homey'. The home, though modern, has a very rustic feel and the setting is nothing short of breath-taking. Located on the Santiam river, minutes from Detroit Lake and Breitenbush Hot Springs and a short drive to Hoodoo Ski Bowl there is no shortage of fun outdoor activities. After your busy day, take a long, hot bath in the jet tub and curl up with a good book in front of the gas fireplace or roast a marshmallow at the outdoor fire-pit. We hope you enjoy your stay at this unique vacation spot as much as we do! -Tom Bell

Romantic Valentines Day Weekend

1st, pictures do not do this log cabin justice......it is huge and absolutely beautiful......
2nd very close to Detroit lake and numerous hiking trailheads and private trail down to river, definitely bringing fishing gear next time.
3rd plenty of room and well appointed, we didn't lack anything, we will definitely be returning with the rest of our clan for a family gathering very soon.

Simply Beautiful and Restful

  • 4 of 5
With enough room for our group of 18 and 3 dogs, this home is beautifully situated and appointed. The great room and loft was such an easy place to be that everyone had a fantastic time. Everything was super clean upon our arrival, and the home was well furnished with the necessities. Easily accessible with plenty of room for parking, we had no problems finding the home. The wrap-around deck with the river right below made a quiet oasis in the middle of all the people. Internet access is set up wrong (access only lasted an hour then locked out) and the upstairs bathroom toilet ran slowly. Other than that, everything was wonderful and we all had a great stay. Thanks.

9 of us checked in on the 12th and were delightfully surprised at the fabulous accommodations. Everything we needed was available to us and it was so comfortable. The boys and men headed to the river almost immediately and caught 3 fish which we fried for dinner. 3 more family members spent the last 2 nights with us. It was a great family gathering. Would love to do it again in the future!

Late Christmas at the Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful late Christmas at the Gates Log Cabin. It was a half-way point from all over the state for our adult children to meet up with us. The weather was mild and we had a wonderful time exploring the path along the river and playing horseshoes out back. The cabin is so much better than the photos represent. We had 4 families and each family was able to have a private space with the 3 bedrooms and game room. We would love to visit in the summer!

WOW! What a beautiful big place!

  • 5 of 5
All I can say about this place is WOW! What a beautiful place. We were looking in Sunriver but so happy we found this place instead. Great Views - "BIG" log cabin with a wonderful wrap around deck right next to the river. Game room for the kids and baby friendly. Fenced yard. Loved the kitchen!
Everything you need is provided for you. We had a wonderful time. Thank you and Thank you for the bottle of wine.

Beautiful Home, Serene Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
I agree with some of the other reviewers in saying that the pictures do not do this house justice! From the minute you drive up it is jaw-droppingly beautiful. It is HUGE and very comfortable for a large group, with lots of places for people to be together or in solitude. I could sit for hours on the deck watching the beautiful river, and we spent many happy hours at the firepit as well as down by the river and on the little trail that leads from the house. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked all our meals. It was close to the marina and the state park and we headed to Detroit Lake every day. We vacationed here with my two small kids and my mother- and father-in-law and everyone loved it and hoped we would make it a family tradition. We will definitely be back - this is my perfect vision of a riverside retreat!!

Amenities

From the Owner

One of my wife and my favorite spots is on the back porch overlooking the river with a good cup of coffee after dinner. Our grand-kids love playing horseshoes in the front 'yard' and roasting marshmallows at the outdoor fire-pit. In the summertime, we spend a lot of time fishing, boating, jet-skiing and camping at Detroit Lake. In the wintertime, our family loves to go skiing, sledding and snowboarding at Hoodoo Ski Bowl. We have most of our birthday celebrations for our family at the log home as the kitchen is great for large gatherings, the home is big enough to sleep many people & although only 40 minutes from Salem, it feels like a mini-vacation. It's our home-away-from-home!
