Guest Book:


This was my first visit to the North Umpqua River.. Sooo much beauty!  Sooo much fun- rafting, hiking, eating, drinking… I loved the local Micro breweries!  Hard to believe it can be so quite & serene.   I especially loved the hike to Fall creek falls.  The trail thru and around the columnar basalt was magical!  Thanks for a great stay at the Swiftwater Park Guest House.  Clean and comfortable just like home, my wife said you thought of every thing!  “Bill was a extraordinary river guide!!   Mike & Valorie


Thank you for making this such a clean and welcoming place.  We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and on the river with you.  Truly a family re-union to remember. 🙂  Many thanks!  Roger and Valerie

Gorgeous accommodations!  Private, relaxing, warm, and inviting.  You guys did an amazing job on the grounds and studio.  Excited about part 2 of our trip–Rafting.  Definitely will come back next year and bring friends and family!  – Michael and Brandy


The pictures for the location does not do it justice! I really expected a “thrown together” lodge. What I found was a perfect location a big group of three families.

We went whitewater rafting on one day with the owner’s whitewater rafting company. Everyone in our group were very impressed with the operation. The guides were knowledgeable, patient and accommodating of all of our issues.

The first day we went into Roseburg which is only 22 miles away. We visited Safeway and Costco in Roseburg while centrally located did not have raised prices that you normally see in a vacation city.

On the other days we went to Crater Lake, Newberry National Volcanic Monument and the ocean. With the exception of the whitewater rafting everything seemed to be about two hours away.


Very well stocked kitchen.

Note: This is a remote location but the water was not “well water”. Either they are getting fresh water from the mountains or they have a water purifier on the house. I was very pleased with this factor.


There was more than enough towels. They were also good quality and large. Not the crappy hotel type towels. The bathrooms were stocked with amenities like what you would find in a hotel.


The beds were nicely completed with everything from extra throw pillows to decorative shams. The linens were not hotel quality either. They were luxury class materials.


The couches are top quality and CLEAN! The kitchen table made for some nice gaming and long after dinner conversations.

Deck/Hot Tub:

They have an extra large charcoal coal grill outside on the deck. This allowed us to grill a lot of things at once. The deck had a nice sitting area so that we could sit outside and enjoy the Perseid Meteor Shower.


Because we had two people that were on 24 hour call we needed reliable service. In all we had at least 8 devices at any time connected. Both the attorney and the judge staying in the lodge were able to get all of their documents completed with no service interruption.

When I originally wrote this review it was three pages long. The system would not allow me to post that big of a statement. There are so many good things to say about this rental. I look forward to visiting again!  – Zarilla



What a Joy to find this delightful guesthouse in this scenic valley.  The furnishings and amenities are all first class, and speak volumes of the person(s) who conceived it all.  Absolutely 5 stars!! Thank you – John & Rolanda from Silverton.  7/26/2014


OMG!! This has been the best “Cousins Camp” ever!!  7 cousins and parents.  Bachan loved the Main House, 2 studios, yurt, the beaches, waterfalls, Crater Lake, and fishing.  But, the river rafting with North Umpqua Outfitters was the BEST.  Thanks!!  – Bachan Skinner Camp. 7/12-7/20 2014


What a spacious comfortable rental!  We stayed at Swiftwater Park Guest House with 4 adults and 6 children. There was plenty of seating and space to sleep.  I loved the large dining table; it was nice to have all the cousins eating and playing games together.

All the appliances worked perfectly and the kitchen was great for cooking in.  The view from the deck was beautiful and the hot tub was perfect after our fun day of whitewater rafting. Rafting with North Umpqua Outfitters was a memory our family will never forget.  Even our 7 year old had a blast!  I would highly recommend this rental for small and large groups.  We city people really enjoyed the wilderness and adventure.

It was a great location for our birthday re-union. Celebrating 5 birthdays with a group can be hard, but this place is close to everything. There was fishing, hiking, hot springs, and xc skiing/snowshoeing for our diverse group. When your are done you can come back to a spacious comfortable house with a Jacuzzi. It was a gorgeous location along the North Umpqua and I can only imagine what the summer holds for rafting and biking.

Beautiful location!  We were pleasantly surprised to see the location and studios in person.  The Studio is very comfortable – the farthest thing from feeling like a hotel or motel. We would like to take this studio with us on all of our out of town events!  Very private and clean.

Thank you & we hope to be back again very soon.

Warmest regards.

Eric  from Reno Nevada!!

Our fourth of July wedding party raft trip was spectacular.  I hoped for a great time, but my expectations were far exceeded.  The North Umpqua river gets a lot of credit.  As my brother said “It makes the McKenzie river look like an irrigation ditch.”  But you guys made it even better with great guides and equipment and really efficient logistics.  Everyone has raved about their experience.  It was the icing on our wedding.  Also my family loved staying at the Swiftwater Park Guest House. It worked out perfectly for everyone.
