Welches cottage description

Enjoy sitting on the deck listening to birdsongs and watch the deer and other occasional wildlife wandering through. If you enjoy cold river swimming try jumping into the Salmon River's swimming hole from our property.

Sleep in luxury in the queen sized bed with it's ironed Egyptian cotton sheets. The double sofa bed in the living room is not quite so luxurious but children are quite comfy in it.

Escape from TV by playing games or cards; CD's or books can be checked out in the owner's home next door. Information on local restaurants, hiking trails, scenic drives and other activities is available in the nicely furnished cottage. Mt. Hood is the only year around ski and snowboarding area in the country.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1993

              About the owner: Doug is a retired businessman who traveled the world for a living; Barbara a retired editor, retail manager, and Jill-of-all-trades. We both enjoy traveling, staying in foreign countries long enough to see the sights and absorb some of the local culture. Both of us are very involved in community volunteer work. Barbara a fund raiser for the Hoodland Women's Club, currently attempting to bring in funds to construct a new community center. Jed, our German Shepherd, doesn't let us forget his daily frisbee session or walk. He keeps us company during the day while Doug gardens, pastes together our 1920's house or works in his shop, and Barbara gardens, writes, prepares feasts or does needlework. We are both avid readers and music lovers.

              Why the Owner Chose Welches:
              We chose this property because it came with the house on a beautiful twelve acres of land on the Salmon River. We have traveled a fairly large swath of the Earth and think this is one of the most beautiful places in it. It also is only an hour's drive from the attractions of Portland in one direction and the Columbia River Gorge in another. Barbara grew up spending summers in the family cottage on the Salmon River near their current dwelling.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Being secluded at the end of a dead end gravel road, having riverfront acreage with a swimming hole, a place to watch salmon spawning in autumn, a shopping center only five minutes away and a resort just across the river.
