Large Family Friendly House on the Santiam River w/ Hobbit Door!

Located in: Mill City
Enjoy a relaxing stay right on the north Santiam River at the Spring Shire House.

A family-built 2014 house of ~3000 square feet to provide plenty of space for relaxation. It sleeps 14 and can handle more if needed. Nestled on the banks of the North Santiam River, it provides waterfront views and access for swimming, rafting, kayaking, or fishing.

The house is fully furnished and waiting for you! The first floor contains a master bedroom and master bath, with jacuzzi bathtub and shower. Upstairs you will find 3 large bedrooms with spacious closets and queen sized beds. All rooms include a dresser and walk in closet.

Also upstairs is 1 large bonus bedroom with 4 built in bunk beds plus a queen bed and a divan for kids. The bonus bedroom has a unique feature -- a hobbit door for an entry. Round, functional and fun, it is sized for the little people including a peephole. The room is decorated with Hobbit and Lord of the Rings posters and items to add magic to a child's imagination. There is also a stock of toys there for kids of all ages. There is a standard fire door for adult/emergency ingress and egress.

2 full baths upstairs and 1.5 baths downstairs keeps everyone happy. Bathrooms are already stocked with normal toiletries.

Throughout the house you will find bookshelves with books and/or movies to entertain. A smaller TV upstairs will let the kids watch videos or play on the PS2. Downstairs a large 55" TV provides adult viewing options, with both DVD and Blu-Ray capabilities along with a Netflix account. The house has wifi with 5G speed for internet devices and browsing.

The kitchen is fully outfitted including incidental supplies and condiments. Includes a stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator and 2 deep sinks for ease of use. Cupboard contain a full set of dishes, glassware , silverware, cookware and standard spices for dining/cooking in. An ultra quiet dishwasher will handle the mess while everyone enjoys the activities on the first floor. The large island, with 4 bar stool chairs, create a casual eating place if desired.

The great room contains a 12-person dining room table made from polished classic barnwood with matching benches, giving a great feel of country living. Next to it is a small kid-sized table with an inlaid chess/checker board and four chairs. There are additional tables/chairs in a nearby closet for even larger groups.

The room continues to a large sectional couch, recliner, area rug and some chairs and stools. The entire side of the house facing the river has large windows and benches with storage and cushions to allow river viewing while relaxing, and plenty of seating. A gas fireplace completes the cozy room.

Outside in the back is a concrete patio with quite a bit of seating, and was recently expanded to wrap around to form another river viewing area on the side of the house as well. If interested, pull the full size BBQ out from the garage and connect it to the propane outlet built into the house for grilling up a quick bite or slow roasting steaks.

Feel free to grab the rafts, paddles and life vests out of the garage for a trip down the river (standard run to a nearby state park takes 90-120 minutes and runs through about 6 rapids, most Class 2 and one Class 3). Or perhaps fishing is your way of relaxing -- grab the poles and tackle box from the garage and see if you can land a steelhead or rainbow trout.

Any visitor will be drawn to the river, with its relaxing hum and cheerful water swirls. It is shallow enough along the bank to allow easy swimming and wading for younger kids but wide enough to allow the rafters and kayakers to slide by with no more disturbance than a wave from the bank. Grab a chair and rest your feet in the cool water, perhaps skip some rocks or just relax and watch the water.

A rope swing on an apple tree and the nearby fire pit (with firewood cut close by) round out the outdoor items. See if the kids can find the secret fairy door hidden somewhere along the base of the house...

Mill City is a quiet town in the foothills of the Cascades and near multiple hikes, parks, and recreational opportunities. Many choices and some legendary pizza distinguish this hidden gem of a community.

This house was built on property owned by our grandfather, who loved the river and passed that down to us. We use the house ourselves and want to share the relaxation and fun that we experience every time we visit. We hope you will enjoy your stay!
