  • Awesome Getaway

    "My husband & I headed up to Mt Hood,Oregon for our anniversary. It was great conditions . I had never been skiing before so I decided to take some lessons. The ski staff was very patient & I learned a lot. It was our 1st time there. We had the breakfast buffet at the Cascade Dining Room .It was so delicious, lots of variety of dishes to choose from. It was a great way to start our day of skiing. We came home from a full day of skiing to find the hot tub a refreshing & calming way to unwind our tight muscles. We made a fire in the fire pit on the back deck & enjoyed steaks on the grill. The inside of the home was decorated with many unique ski decor. We had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable & relaxing. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home."

  • Thanksgiving reunion

    "Alll the superlatives about this house were "right on." It was beautifully and completely furnished, spacious and clean. Our family of 16 had a marvelous time cooking in the gourmet kitchen, watching movies and football in the theater and playing pool and ping pong. Peg was wonderful to interact with from start to finish, very responsive to emails, texts and phone calls. Best house we've rented so far!"

  • Favorite Place!

    "My husband and I just stayed at Kathy's Kottage Feb, 2015. We have stayed in 17 cabins either on Mt Hood or Mt Rainier over the past 24 years, and we've decided this is our favorite! There have been many great features at most of the places we have stayed, but what sets Kathy's Kottage above the rest is that it feels like more than just a rental cabin - it feels like a "home"..and one that has not only been well kept up, but one that has been made special, as if the owner was expecting an out of town family member or friend! There are so many pieces of attractive furniture, that are comfortable as well, including the beds! Most other places have one couch and maybe a wooden rocking chair! The kitchen is as well stocked as my own (minus the food!, there was plenty of wood for the fire, and even basic medicine in the medicine cabinet! The Kottage had a rustic feel with tasteful decor, but was also contemporary. The setting was fabulous!!! Our prerequisite for renting a cabin is that it has a hot tub, and we prefer that it's on a river. Kathy's Kottage had both, and the hot tub was on the deck CLOSE to the house overlooking the river, and although you are in the forest, the river cuts a wide berth so that there is much light on the trees, and beautiful sky up above! We were married up on Mt Hood, so we love the mountain, and although it was so strange to see such a lack of snow (hence no x-country skiing!), we took a couple really nice hikes; since the Kabin is further up the mountain than many we have stayed in, these hikes were conveniently nearby. We will back, maybe even for a whole week next year for our 25th anniversary!"

  • It was just what we hoped it would be

    "The cabin is woodsy, comfortable, clean, and friendly-feeling. You have to pay attention when you're on the stairs leading up to the second floor because they are narrow and a little uneven, but visually they are great. The business side of the rental transaction was smooth; no issues at all. We will definitely be back."
