Mount Hood cabin description

A wonderful rustic, yet spacious cabin in the shadow of Mount Hood, Oregon. Whiskey Creek Cabin provides ready access to many great places around Mount Hood.

The cabin was built in 1930 by the legendary Mount Hood wood craftsman and renowned cabin builder Henry Steiner. He and his son's built many of the cabins in the local area during the first half of the twentieth century. Henry's personal touches are everywhere that you look. Originally located at Whiskey Creek, along the Barlow Road, it was moved to it's present location near Brightwood, next to Hackett Creek, in the 1960's when the highway was widened. Whiskey Creek Cabin is also listed in the Oregon Historical Society. The cabin was renovated during 2007 and then we made it into a vacation rental early in 2008.

Whiskey Creek Cabin has been thoughtfully furnished and decorated for your comfort and relaxation. The kitchen is well stocked and there are plenty of extra linens, pillows and towels. That is just the beginning of the many small details that will make this your favorite retreat on the mountain. We did our best to add all the comforts of home and then some for both you and your canine friends.

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: Thanks for visiting my VRBO site, I'm Kory and I live and play in the Mt Hood area. Whiskey Creek Cabin has been a lot of fun!. It's so great to see the same people are coming back! We have a small farm in the Welches area that I share with my husband, our 14 year old son, 3 horses, 2 Golden Retrievers, 1 Red Bone Coon Hound, 3 cats and most recently chickens. We enjoy riding our snowmobiles in the winter, our dirt bikes in the summer. My husband Gary likes to enjoy a round of golf while I hit the trail on my horse. Life is good when you get to live and play on Mt Hood!
