It is with great pleasure that I write this review for my stay at McKenzie Orchards Bed and Breakfast. The MO BandB was the perfect location and venue for a very peaceful celebration of my birthday. The accommodations were exceptional. Our room was big enough for 3 adults and I particularly appreciated the fact that there were no tv's in the rooms. The dining and living rooms (which were always open and available to us) overlooked a very large open area with the beautiful McKenzie River running right at the edge of the property. The proprietors were most gracious and provided a unique atmosphere for this special celebration. We were invited into a very professionally designed and equipped kitchen to watch them prepare our dinner. Both Karen and Tom are gourmet cooks who were eager to share their excitement for preparing and cooking our extraordinary dinner, which was delicious and prepared to perfection. My sister ordered a special cake for the occasion which was created by Karen's sister, Orah, a fabulous baker. Absolutely delicious and it received rave reviews by all. The next morning breakfast was served with homemade scones, raspberries, whipped cream, lots of fresh fruit, eggs (to order), meat if desired, homemade multigrain bread and raspberry jam. Tom and Karen made our stay at McKenzie Oaks relaxing and peaceful. They are wonderful folks... kind and generous.The goodness of the proprietors, the incredible meals, and the peaceful setting made for a wonderful experience.

What a fantastic place! We celebrated a birthday but really no reason is needed to get away and visit Mekenzie Orchards. The food was yummy, the environment calm and relaxing, the rooms were clean and updated. We truly felt part of the family. A return visit is a guarantee.

We stayed at McKenzie Orchards for a family reunion. After the first night, I got up late because I wasn't feeling well; I missed the main breakfast. Tom kindly offered to make me a separate breakfast. Well I was there, I lost one of my favorite earrings and let Karen know before I left. Three weeks later, Karen called me and told me she found it and was mailing it to me, free of charge! The house is beautiful, we got one of the biggest, best rooms in the house, and Tom graciously set up an extra air bed on the floor for one of my sons. Well I was thrilled to be staying with my extended family, the house was quite loud and I found myself wanting a little more peace. It's quieter if the house is not full or if you go outside. that's the only reason I didn't give McKenzie orchards a five star review – that and the tiny detail of the bathroom door not quite closing all the way. Fortunately, I was sharing a room with close family so it didn't bother me much! I would totally go back.

My husband and I stayed two nights and this is a hidden gem in the country. Quiet, close to the river and very relaxing. Tom and Karen are great cooks and hosts. Our room was spacious and clean. The bathroom is large and the double head shower was a added bonus. We definitely will return.

My husband and I stayed at the McKenzie Orchards Bed and Breakfast for two nights, along with my 2 siblings and their spouses, for my nephew's wedding in late June. My husband found it online and we couldn't have been happier!! We stayed in the Paradise Room and it was a huge room (about 650 square feet) and clean as could be! The bed was comfy and the bedding and towels were luxurious. We enjoyed the TV room downstairs after the wedding to just hang out and enjoy our time together. Tom is a great cook and is extremely personable, as is Karen his wife. They compliment each other and take great pride in their Bed and Breakfast. If you are looking for a place to stay in this area, this is the place for you!! You will not regret your choice of accommodations. We will certainly stay here again, when we are back in the Eugene/Springfield area. Thank you Tom and Karen for a wonderful visit!! The Brady's, Wards and Yassemedis'

The hosts were very welcoming. We learned a lot about bees and building your dreams!

We spent one night at the McKenzie Orchards Bed and Breakfast as part of a several-days-long trip from California to Washington. It was, by far, our favorite stop (before reaching our other favorite B&B, the Green Cat in Poulsbo, WA)...if only ALL B&Bs could be like this! The attention to detail, cleanliness, and quality of every aspect of this operation is top notch. Tim & Karen Anderson

We rolled into the Eugene area on the third week of our USA, road trip, & let me say we had stayed at many Bed & Breakfast properties along the way. This one was the Best! The first place to start is feeling welcome & wanted at a property, which Karen did so well. Tom was out of town, but we would like to return and meet him someday. We drove down the driveway to a beautifully designed home sitting in paradise-quiet along the McKenzie River. When you walk into the home it is large, warm and inviting. Our room was spacious, in fact every room was spacious with good use of space and ease of use. The bed and all the furniture is super comfortable. A highlight is the artwork throughout available for purchase from local artists and Karen! We were welcomed with a glass of wine and this wicked good appetizer featuring Tom's homemade bread and vegetables from the property cooked up by Karen into a delish ratatouille. The next morning's breakfast was perfection, starting with an apple pastry & the freshest fruit. Eggs and way you want.....I ordered poached, a little runny....they were spot on, and more of Tom's whole wheat bread! with a butter bell. :) Last, I would like to thank Karen and Tom for the cleanest B & B I have ever stayed. The bathroom was spotless, in fact, the entire property is very well taken care of. In summary, I give McK O B&B an A+ in every area. We will return.

Arriving from the Netherlands after a long flight and a two hour drive, we immediately fell in love with McKenzie Orchards B&B . Spacious, clean rooms, the best beds you can imagine and wonderful breakfast. We stayed for 6 nights and still felt sorry we had to leave... Hosts Karen and Tom gave us great suggestions for day trips in the area and beyond. We would love to come back one day...!
