  • Very Quaint Cabin!

    "We enjoyed our stay very much! The cabin is as described and has very comfortable livingroom seating areas with a very nice rustic fireplace as well as a potbelly gas fireplace, which kept the cabin warm, and the beds were very comfortable. There was WiFi and hot tub, which we enjoyed. Although, it is located in a little congested neighborhood area; my reason for rating 4stars; there were several rundown homes very close to the cabin and the gravel road to reach the cabin was a little ruff. Not things the owner would be responsible for, but worth mentioning, because we were surprised when we first pulled into the area where the cabin was situated. We'd assumed it would be situated in an area of its own. Nonetheless, it still was pleasant and quiet, and we weren't bothered. We had six adults in our group, and we had plenty of room. Our purpose for staying in the area was to go snowboarding. It took us about 20 mins from the cabin to Timberline Lodge and there were several places to eat and buy last minute supplies, etc. We had all our meals at the cabin; it had a fully stocked kitchen with very nice cooking essentials and pots and pans. We had some very last minute changes and the owner was very accommodating and very responsive to emails & messages. In fact, she was outstanding! We would definitely stay there again."

  • Flawless experience!

    "It was my turn to host Thanksgiving this year so I thought we would all (twenty family members) stay at one place instead of hotels. Maple River Retreat was everything I could ask for! It accommodated us all comfortably with ample room to cook, play and just relax, there are beds for 16 not 20, but this was not a problem because some folks brought air mattresses. When we ran low on wood to burn Becca promply restocked us, even on Thanksgiving day. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at the Resort at the Mountain (I would recommend it). Some of my family members had never been to the NW and needless to say they were speechless with the beauty and the retreat! Becca thankyou so much for sharing this wonderful house I would not hesitate to come back!"

  • Great Mountain Getaway!

    "My family just returned from a terrific long weekend at Raven's Nest. Despite fairly low snow levels this year in many areas, the cabin was surrounded by snow and wintery trails to explore, just above Government Camp on the shoulder of Mt Hood. It is a beautiful place. While there we hike, skied, and explored the outdoors. But the best part was returning to that beautiful, warm and comfortable cabin for showers, food, music and good cheer! Great fun!"

  • House with Character!

    "The location was fantastic - but if walking be prepared for a tough up hill from downtown. This is an older home that has lots of character and fun hiding places for kids. The kitchen is very well stocked and that was appreciated by our family. It is a very comfortable home not fancy or luxurious. The heat was hard to regulate. It seemed the heat would not come on until the temperature was well below the setting. The house also did not heat evenly making the bedrooms very cold while lower level was warmer. The fireplace worked well. It really warmed the entire first level of the home. I would suggest that the owners provide a fireplace screen and tools for the fireplace."
