Beautiful And Quaint With All Modern Updates On East Fork Of The Little River
About Rob Shaffer
We love the outdoors, and this place we have made our weekend getaway and solace. It exudes peacefulness and was designed to be cozy yet modern in every way, so we could truly relax and be surrounded by nature.
Rob Shaffer purchased this Cabin in 2008

Great for the outdoors person or stay in type person.
We enjoyed our stay. Hot Tub needs a two step (for stability) bench all the way across front of tub. Wife has back problems. Otherwise all was good for us.
Just a nice getaway
The place was amazing
The “Away from it all” cabin really lives up to its name! For 2 days, the only human beings I saw were the ones that came with me! If seclusion is what you need, then this is it! The cabin itself is beautiful! All the old charm with up to date luxury’s! Hot tub awesome! There is no cell service! WiFi is in the cabin. Satellite tv also. Thank goodness or I would have missed the Auburn-Oregon game! War Eagle 🦅�! There is a land line to use in the cabin that will keep you connected to the outside world. Cabin is 1.3 miles from the paved road. Wildlife abounds all around. Awesome fire pit and charcoal grill. Getting to the river below a little challenging to some. Lots of steps! But once down there, great fishing. You can hear the sound of the waterfall as soon as you get out of the car! Most relaxing weekend I have had in a long time! Also, the Wild Flower Cafe in Mentone gave me one of the best eating experiences I have had in a long time. Try them, great food, atmosphere and service you will ever experience! Order the peanut butter pie for dessert!!
Fabulous quiet get away spot!
Enjoyed it very much!
We were looking for a place to get away to for our 30th anniversary and this was perfect. Beautiful place and surroundings. Truly an ideal place to go.
Peaceful and Relaxing
Loved staying there, we were celebrating our 41st anniversary and wanted something that was away from everything. My husband and I enjoyed the absolute quietness of this property. Exactly what we needed.
