Property description

Dancing Bear Log Cabin is a beautifully preserved example of the Steiner Log Cabins that are unique to the Mt Hood Area in Oregon and a highly valued piece of its history. Steiner is well known for having also worked on the construction of Timberline Lodge. This vintage, three bedroom, one bath cabin is located on historic Barlow Trail nestled next to Hackett Creek. Let the creek lull you to sleep as it babbles under your window-- backing to a canopy of old growth fir trees and whispy alders. Cross the creek on a wooden bridge to your own private picnic area where you can toast marshmellows by the outdoor firepit or play a friendly game of horseshoes at the horseshoe pit. The back deck overlooks Hackett Creek and the woods and there is a private creekside hot tub. The authenticity of this home has been carefully maintained, and the furnishings artfully capture the period in keeping with the spirit of the 1930's era. The master bedroom has a queen log bed with luxurious Pendleton Woolen Mills bedding, rustic light fixtures and furnishings. The guest bedroom offers a double bed. On the main level you'll find a third bedroom with a day bed/trundle and a second TV/VCR. Two futon sofas in the living room provide extra sleeping space. The massive stone fireplace provides warmth and a feel for what our beautiful Mt. Hood area must have been like back in the day. Romance, charm and a warm fire await you at this lovely home. This is a great place to experience Mt Hood from an historical perspective. Sleeps up to 6 adults in beds, with living room futon for additional sleeping space.

Not only is America's playground at your doorstep with the Mt Hood Wilderness and ski resorts, and the Alpine slide, but you're also a 45 minutes to the Hood River gorge which offers world class Windsurfing. Enjoy year round skiing at Timberline where you can ski into the historical Timberline Lodge and enjoy a world-class meal with a three-peak view of the valley and Cascade Range. Or enjoy 18 holes at the Resort at the Mountain, and stop for a dinner experience at the Rondezvous Restaurant where you'll be tantalized by delicious concoctions. For more casual fare we like the Burro Loco for a margarita and Mexican food.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: We live in the Portland area and have vacationed at the cabin for over 12 years with our sons…skiing, hiking and taking in all that the Mt Hood national forest has to offer. There is no better place to enjoy everything that Oregon has to offer.

Why Rhododendron:
We've enjoyed Mt Hood for over 45 years--especially the year round skiing at Timberline Lodge where they have one of the nations only glaciers offering summer skiing (and they host the US Ski Team). My parents honeymooned at Timberline Lodge in the 1950's. In the summer months we boat and swim in one of the many mountain lakes (our favorite is Trillium Lake) and we frequent the miles and miles of hiking trails--a family favorite being the Mirror Lake Hike. Pack a lunch and eat along the lake or continue up to Tom, Dick and Harry ridge for amazing views of the cascade range. The kids enjoy the Wildwood Park Trail with interactive displays beaver dam and underwater view of the river. Our cabin feels like it's remote, but it's only an hour from Portland, 10 minutes from charming Sandy Oregon, and 20 minutes to some of the best skiing Oregon has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
After a good hike we love to relax on our deck by the babbling Hacket creek, fire up the barbeque and then enjoy a game of horseshoes on the deck. Our ritual includes at least one dinner at Burro Loco for a little Mexican food, and a breakfast at the Barlow Trail Inn. For special occasions we treat ourselves to a meal at Rondezvous --they never disappoint. Or if we're up at Timberline lodge for a historic tour and hike we make it a point to enjoy the world-class brunch (YUM).
