Property description

Get away from it all in this custom built mountain lodge located on the Salmon River and bordering the 61,000 acre Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness. The Salmon River Chalet is the perfect retreat for families looking to find a place to get away and relax up at beautiful Mount Hood. You will enjoy 3,000 sq. feet of comfortable cabin space and over an acre of forested riverfront property on the scenic Salmon River.

The chalet's large open floor plan is perfect for entertaining the whole family with the centrally located kitchen situated between two large living spaces. At one end of the chalet, the living room displays high vaulted ceilings with large windows overlooking the forest. At the other end, the game room is stocked with board games, toys for the kids, foosball, and air hockey. Perfect for a family game night around the fire. The large wooden deck wraps around the entire lower level to connect the family together for BBQs and beautiful views of the forest.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the chalet's upstairs master bedroom which has its own private deck overlooking the forest and river. The master also includes a log king-sized log bed, an en-suite bathroom with soaking tub, and tile shower with private forest views. Listen to the soothing sounds of the Salmon River while you read a book in the reading nook in this luxurious master suite.

The main floor of the cabin has 3 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms-enough room for the whole family to spread out and relax. The bedrooms include: the ‘Golf Room’ with a log king-sized log bed, the ‘Cabin Room’ with two twin sized log beds, and 'The Bear Den' with two bunk-beds for the kids to enjoy.

Love nature? Take a hike on the nearby The Bonanza Trail (#786). The trailhead is only a half-mile away from the cabin, no need to drive- just take a short hike to your hike! The Bonanza trail follows scenic Cheeney creek and goes past the old abandoned Bonanza mine. Other nearby scenic hikes include: The Salmon River Trail, Ramona Falls, and the Mirror Lake Trail with stunning reflections of Mt Hood.

The Salmon River Chalet is close to world class skiing and snowboarding with numerous ski resorts located on & around Mt Hood. Ski Bowl, Timberline, and Mt Hood Meadows are easily accessible and offer extensive terrain, high speed lifts, and full service amenities. Timberline is America's only year-round ski resort, and Mt Hood Ski Bowl offers the largest night skiing area in America.

In the summer, there is excellent mountain biking, including purpose built trail systems and even chair lift-assisted downhill terrain at Ski Bowl. The Sandy River Trail alone contains more than 15 miles of purpose built single track trails appealing to a variety of difficulty levels.

The cabin sits directly on the beautiful Salmon River which is fed by Mt. Hood's glaciers and contains some of the best fly fishing in Oregon. Alpine lakes are also nearby and feature great fishing, hiking, bird watching, and photo opportunities.

The Resort At The Mountain is just a mile away, offering a 27-hole championship golf course, a full service spa, and other amenities.

Excellent nearby restaurants include Italian, Mexican, alpine, burgers, pizza and pub fare. We have recommended list of restaurants listed in our cabin book.

The cabin's backyard is the Mt Hood National Forest and the vast Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness, which contains excellent hiking, mountain biking, and mountaineering.

With so much to explore up at Mt. Hood we hope you enjoy your stay at the cabin and come again soon!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are the Rodman family and we live in Portland, Oregon. Our two young children are growing up quickly and we realized we needed a place to slow down and relax from our busy city life. We fell in love with beautiful Mt. Hood and our family enjoys biking, hiking, sledding and skiing all year round up at the mountain. The fly fishing is great too and is right in the cabin's backyard! We hope to share our love of the mountain with you and your family as you enjoy your stay at our cabin.

Why the Owner Chose Mount Hood:
The Salmon River Chalet sits in a beautifully wooded area right between the Salmon River and the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness. The cabin has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2 decks, and 2 large living spaces for the whole family to spread out and enjoy. The setting is private and pristine, a perfect place to relax and get away.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
We've rented lots of cabins up at Mt. Hood before we purchased this home and we know that having a few cabin 'extras' can make your stay much more enjoyable for your family. That's why our cabin is stocked with family board games, decks of cards, a foosball table, and it even has alpine themed books for the kids to enjoy for bedtime stories. We've tried to think of activities that both adults and kids of all ages of kids would enjoy at our cabin to make help create the best family memories. Adults can relax on the large deck overlooking the forest with a cup of cocoa and a book while the kids play with Lincoln Logs and build their own mountain cabin. The whole family can take a short stroll down the property to our campfire pit right at the river bank. Everyone can enjoy s'mores and tell stories about your day up on the mountain. This cabin has something special for everyone!
