ValleyView Motel: The Perfect Base for Enjoying Canyonville, Oregon

Canyonville is a small city in Oregon whose biggest attraction is probably the Seven Feathers Casino Resort. Whenever I visited the Seven Feathers Casino Resort or brought the whole family to enjoy the Fall Classic Rodeo we / I would choose to stay at the Valley View Motel. The motel was centrally located making it easy for us to  get anywhere. 

Needless to say I was disappointed, as were others, when the motel closed its doors. It may seem crazy to buy the domain of an no longer motel, but when it became available to decided to purchase it anyway.  Consider this a homage to the Valley View Motel. The information found on this page is from the 2007 -2011 archived pages so don’t make the mistake of thinking that it is current. Of course the Seven Feathers Casino Resort is still running as is the Camas Room and the kids can still enjoy Wildlife Safari, an accredited non-profit wildlife park that is dedicated to education, conservation and research. DO note that it’s been around for 38 years!

For wine lovers, the Henry Goes Wine is celebrating 30 years with its tasting room open daily 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. And the Fall Classic Rodeo is still entertaining folks every September. Some things change and some remain the same. Unfortunately we can’t say the fortunes of the Valley View Motel remained the same.  But my family and I had many fine adventures while staying at the motel in Canyonville, Oregon.

 So here is our tribute to the motel.  We miss you.
