About Casey Plank
I like people and the earth and love sharing good things! I live in Seattle and this place allows me to stay connected with family in Oregon and the amazing-ness of rural Oregon. I care about environmental protection and social good - owning and renting this place has given me an opportunity to make building material, size and waterfront land management decisions with both pleasure and the earth in mind. Income from this rental supports organizations, programs and work related to equity and education particularly as it relates to youth and teens.
Casey Plank purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Casey Plank chose Vida
The McKenzie River is a magical place. This property and cabin were dying when it was purchased with the intent to salvage and restore. I grew up in Oregon and the McKenzie Valley has a lot to offer with easy access to both the Willamette Valley and Central Oregon.
What makes this Cabin unique
Renting this place allows you to make your vacation time and money go to more than simple pleasure. Real estate isn't really my thing, but finding ways to connect with people and the bigger picture are. You will notice photos throughout the rental from all of over the world that run along themes of food, water and environment. Income from this property supports social justice work throughout the northwest as it relates to issues of youth development and access to opportunity. There are only a few places along the river that provide the beauty and closeness to the River itself - I look forward to sharing this with you!

Perfect, calm and beautiful!
This is our second time staying and it won't be our last. We love the river right outside the windows. The cabin is a perfect blend of old and new. Something we did this year was spend more time down below on the "concrete patio". It is quiet and cool on this hot Oregon summer. Everything about the place speaks to us and we had a great time.
Beautiful, relaxing, sounds of the river throughout the house, lots of wildlife viewing from deck
This was our first VRBO and a smashing success. The perfect place to sit and read or watch the river go by. Close to breathtaking hikes on the Mackenzie Trail, quick drive to Sisters. The house is perfectly placed along the river for maximum views, is neat and clean and cozy. We did not want to leave and will definitively be returning!
Clean, comfortable cabin right on the river
Very clean and comfortable cabin, nicely furnished and outfitted with many modern appliances.
Nice new house right on the river
Great location to the river. Newer nice cottage
Serene river house
The house is very clean and cozy. It is directly on the river as pictured. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen very well stocked with all necessary dishes, flatware, etc. The bathrooms are quite adequate. The only negative is the noise from the traffic of Hwy 126 but once we were inside the house the noise didn't bother us much.
Additional pricing information
No smoking. Pets negotiable - contact owner. Be adults, take care of things. Protect the river - be conscious of trash, things falling from deck, etc.
