Enjoy this cozy, but spacious, retreat with vast views of forested hills and historic Sandy river right outside your windows and doorstep. You'll be amazed by the sounds and smells of the outdoors, and will be awed by how different the river can look from day to day in course, flow, level and color.
The surrounding area offers activities year round for the outdoor enthusiasts, vacationers, and locals looking to get away for the weekend. Whether winter or summer, you're sure to find this cabin the perfect getaway where you can leave your troubles behind you, while still feeling like it's your home away from home.
While feeling the privacy and seclusion of a wilderness retreat, you'll have available to you many amenities. You'll have cable and WiFi available to allow for any needed connection to the real world as you relax and enjoy this cozy cabin while being warmed by the gas fireplace/stove.
This cabin is different than most in the sense that it is very bright and fresh. It's very family friendly, and can sleep up to 6 with the convertible sofa sleeper. People of all ages will be mesmerized by the beauty of the wilderness and river, and can enjoy both exploring the river and surroundings as well as access trails right outside the cabin.
With thriving area towns a very short distance from the cabin, you'll have plenty of choices for eating out or to stock up on supplies and enjoy your meal at the cabin.

About the owner: We're a couple of accountants with two little girls that enjoy getting away from our busy urban life. We've searched for the perfect place for quite a while and finally found it!
Why the Owner Chose Welches: This area is beautiful and as interesting in the summer as it is in the winter months. We wanted a place that's a short drive from where we live. Being an hour away from Portland this drive is a breeze whether you're getting here Friday evening or heading straight to work on Monday morning. After a pretty long search we knew right away that this cabin/cottage was different from anything else that we had looked at.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The location is amazing, right on the river, with plenty of space around the house for kids to play. Easy to access from the road, but private enough. The house feels fresh and bright, not like some of the dark and moist cabins we looked at during our search.
