  • Excellent Accommodations! Everything we need was there...

    "My family and I stayed at Kathy's Kabin during our trip to Oregon and I could go into all the details about how much we enjoyed Kathy's home but, there isn't enough room to really mention about all the wonderful ammentites Kathy has provided! The beds were so comfy and Kathy has put a lot of thought into her kitchen supplies! All the cooking utensils were there that I needed, as usually I encounter problems with not enough, like crock pots, electric skillet, etc., but everything was there. Kathy even had a coffee grinder and a bread machine. We cooked one night on Kathy's BBQ, and ran out of propane, but low and behold, she had another full tank right beside, how convenient was that! Kathy has thought of everything.... All I can say was WOW! Talk about clean, I don't know how she does it, but even the light switches were clean. My light switch covers usually have finger prints all over them, but not here at Kathy's Kabin! Most rentals we've stayed in had that musty smell, but somehow Kathy doesn't have that in hers, all you smell is CLEAN! This place is gorgeous and she has really paid attention to all the details. It's so cutesy, all decorated in Moose Theme. Our oldest son stayed in the John Wayne room and he said he could hear the rain on the roof one night and it put him right to sleep. Our 2 girls stayed upstairs in the loft and we couldn't get them to leave! We usually bring their games with us, but this trip we forgot, but no worries, Kathy had several games which kept them busy, they had a ball! Our next trip up here will be to Kathy's Kottage! I've seen the pictures and that's next on our "Bucket list"! We wanted to stay there, but she was booked. That's ok, because we really enjoyed ourselves, just the same. I'm happy to have had the experience of her cabin. Thank you Kathy for allowing my family to really enjoy our trip to the MOUNTAIN in your beautiful log cabin. Oops...Log Kabin! I would highly recommend Kathy's Kabin to everyone! You have to come stay atleast once and you will definitely come back. We are going to check out her Cottage next time, if it's available!"

  • A lovely getaway cabin!

    "My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we couldn't be happier! This cabin feels very isolated and private, but is really just minutes away from a number of excellent restaurants, trails, stores, and museums. Whether you're looking to get away or find some adventure, this cabin is just perfect. There are a few quirks - the sink turns itself off occasionally, the lighting is not great, and the whole place shakes when you use the washing machine - but overall, this place is a GREAT DEAL. Especially for travelers on a budget! The owner does ask that you wash the linens before you leave, but that keeps the rental cost down so it's worth it in the end. Plus, he provides the laundry detergent. Just a tip: Read through the listed amenities well before packing for your trip. This cabin is well-stocked, so aside from clothes and groceries you really don't need to bring much! Also, check out the Castle Canyon trail. It's within walking distance from the cabin. It's a steep trek, but the lookout at the top is breathtaking. We can't wait to come back!"

  • Fantastic Stay!

    "We stayed in late December for a couple of nights. The condo is a great place to stay. It is convenient to all things in Government Camp and Timberline Lodge. It is spacious and very well appointed. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a get away in Government Camp. We are already talking about coming back and hopefully will be able to stay in the condo again!"
