Kathy's Kabins has added an Enchanting Vacation Rental Home to her list of Great Getaways. Kathy's Kottage, which overlooks the Zigzag River, in Rhododendron, is located in MT Hood National Forest. Kathy's Kottage does get snow, especially at 1560 feet elevation. This remodeled, unique, 2 bedroom, 2 bath, was used as a Lodge for the miners in the early 1900's. Kathy's Kottage has quite a bit of history behind the original name 'Gorton Lodge'. Kathy's Kottage has been updated, but retained it's 'Lodge Look' on the inside. At Kathy's Kottage, you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the Zigzag River and the views of the mountains.
Kathy's Kottage also has a generator just in case the power goes out, which it occasionally does.
When you enter Kathy's Kottage, you'll walk into the enclosed porch which has a desk, perfect for that inspiring writer! You have a view of the River and the Mountains.
From there you'll enter into the Entertaining/Living Room,(18x30)which was also called the Reception Room when it was Gorton Lodge. The decor has been kept in it's original condition with the woodsy, cabiney look of a Lodge. The 2 Sofas open up to Queen size beds, which will sleep up to 4 extra people comfortably , especially handy for those late night friends.
There is also a 36' LCD Widescreen TV, with DVD player for your viewing pleasure. Kathy's Kottage is perfect for ENTERTAINING!! and Very Romantic... Put a few logs into the Fireplace,sit back and relax to the sounds of the crackling fire. Catch up on 'OLD TIMES'....
The Dining Room shares the Living Room and is able to seat up to 8 people to enjoy that gourmet meal you have prepared in Kathy's Kitchen that has also been updated.
Kathy's Kitchen comes complete, with a dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, ice maker and cook top stove and oven. All appliances,including coffee pot, crock pot, roasting pan, mixer, blender,utensils, spices,etc., are supplied to cook that gourmet or Holiday meal.
Prepare yourself a beverage, step out onto the deck,sit by the railing and take in a breath of fresh Mountain air, as you watch the river pass you by. Or,on those brisk mornings, sip your morning cup of coffee or tea at the breakfast nook and enjoy the sights of the River and Mountains.
The Master Bedroom is romantically darkened with the walls of nature surrounding Kathy's Kottage. Drift off to sleep on this massive, very comfortable King size bed, along with your own private bath and cable TV, with a DVD/VCR. Cover up with high quality sheets and down comforters. Lay back and relax, take in the sounds of the Rushing River. Kathy only puts 'TOP OF THE LINE MATTRESSES' inside her Kabins. No lumpy beds in Kathy's Kottage, you'll get a good nights sleep!!
The Guest Bedroom, complete with an Antique, Queen bed, has ample closet space and a TV for your viewing enjoyment. The antique decor and the sounds of the Zigzag River will relax you and take your cares away.
Outside on the deck you'll find the Hot Tub, which is just a few steps away from the Zigzag River and the front door. Step down into the hot tub at night and look up at the stars, as you take in the sights and sounds of Nature, in your private, secluded Hot Tub, in the MT Hood National Forest. What a relaxing night!!!(swim suits are optional)
Even though Kathy's Kottage has only 2 bedrooms, it's a romantic, cozy, retreat for that special getaway, ski outing, weddings, honeymooners or a holiday retreat for 2-8 people.

WOW!Guest comment entered by owner
Wow!!! I'm sitting here on the porch swing near the river on this beautiful sunny morning with a cup of coffee. It doesn't get any better than this. My husband and I had a wonderful stay here in this beautiful cabin (Kottage) for our 21st anniversary. We ate breakfast on the deck by morning and watched the stars in the hot tub by night. What a lovely atmosphere yo've created here. We will DEFINATELY be back. Hopefully this summer. Thank you soooo much Kathy! Without your generosity we would have never been able to do this. But now that we've had this wonderful experience here at Kathy's Kottage, we will be looking at our calendar to come back. Thank you again, Sincerely Tonya. PS We will tell all out friends and family!

My husband and I took a 3-night respite escape. When we walked through the door we knew it would be just that -- large, but comfortable and cozy-feeling room greeted us, but the closed porch and connected kitchen were very practical (considering the proximity of so much outdoor activity). We loved the kitchen amenities and design. Thanks to Russ and Kathy for redo job well done! Lotsa towels and a delightful master bedroom. We used the hot tub each night because it is so accessible. Thank you both. PS: The bottle of wine was lovely!

My husband and I stayed at Kathy's Kottage for 2 nights this January and had a wonderful time. There is a great view of Still Creek right from the deck along with the cool sound of rushing water. We both felt this place was better than advertised. We made great use of the hot tub and enjoyed sitting in the spacious living room to watch movies, play games, and read. The master suite was a definite highlight of the weekend as the bed was soooo comfy! The kitchen was well stocked and had every utensil, pot, and pan we could have needed. If you do forget some item the town of Rhododendron is literally minutes away (we did end up making a trip over to Mt. Hood Foods for salsa and sour cream). We cooked all of our meals at the cabin but Rhododendron does have several restaurants as does the Government Camp area (about 20 minutes away). It was also nice that this property was dog friendly. We took our 2 dogs with us and they enjoyed running around the yard and taking in the smells. This is a great place to come in the winter if you want to do some skiing, snow shoeing, or snow tubing/sledding. I'm sure it is also a fantastic place to come in the summer as well. We would definitely come back and highly recommend this place.

This is Exactly What We Wanted!
Loved the snow as soon as we drove up! Enjoyed listening to the river. Was pleasantly surprised @ how beautiful the inside of the cabin was. Extremely comfortable and spacious livingroom. We are often disappointed with how uncomfortable the beds are when we travel-We slept like babies! The dogs enjoyed the dog treats-thank you! This is exactly what we wanted-a memorable New Years. Thank you

My girlfriend and I stayed here for her 30th birthday and had a great time. Kathy was easy to work with and very friendly and accommodating. The Kottage is rustic but warm and inviting and super clean which is always a welcome sign. The little amenities like a bottle of wine waiting for us on the counter really make a difference. Everything is comfortable and the king sized bed is amazing. We slept like the dead every night. We had some small issues with the hot tub but one call to Kathy got it squared away and it was great to be able to sit out under the stars each night and listen to the river rushing by. We really had a wonderful time and miss it already. We'll definitely be back and hopefully have some snow next time!

The best and most charming place to stay - couldn't have been happier!
The best and most charming place to stay - couldn't have been happier!
We stayed in Kathy's Kottage and it could not have been a better experience and I can't recommend highly enough. So charming and cozy. We slept every night to the sound of the rushing waters from the Zig Zag river. Very clean and there wasn't one amenity that she didn't think of and have available My sister and I took a vacation together and this was even recognized by a lovely "sister" throw blanket on one of the couches. The beds were wonderfully comfortable and warm. The setting is so beautiful and peaceful. This kottage is the perfect getaway in so many ways from family, to friends to someone who just wants to get away from it all and relax peacefully. I could have made a vacation out of just the kottage itself! Cannot wait to get the chance to go back and do just that! Thanks so much Kathy - your kottage made all of the difference in the world for our vacation, which is already so memorable!

Kathy, You've thought of everything! We had an absolutely awesome time at your amazing cabin. Our time here gave us time to relax and recharge. The river was beautiful and lulled us to sleep each night. We enjoyed breakfast on the deck each morning and the hot tub was an added luxury in the evening. The location was perfect. It was everthing we hoped it would be and more!! Thanks again for sharing this "little slice of heaven" with us. We highly recommend that everyone gets to experience it the way we did.
