  • Excellent Choice for our wedding party

    "This cabin worked exceptionally well for our family members and quests attending a wedding at Timberline Lodge. The cabin was beautiful, comfortable and well designed for a large group. The location next to the Sandy River was breath-taking. Tucked within the wooded landscape, the view from every window was stunning. Visitors from out of state were awe-struck by the beauty of the area. The commuting distance to Timberline Lodge was reasonable."

  • A Slice of Heaven

    "Out family of 4 just spent 4 nights in Carol's beautiful home, and we did not want to leave. The peace and serenity here are unmatched, the home itself is gorgeous and Carol has thought of every detail to make her home feel like your own. Our 6 and 10 year old enjoyed having the upstairs to play games and watch TV in the loft area. We spent every night around the dining room table playing board games provided by the home. We had all of the kitchen it edits necessary to eat in most days which really helped the budget. The hot tub is amazing too. It was so wonderful to be able to come back from the adventures at Mt. Hood each day and relax here. Many of the places we visited were thanks to the brochures and booklets in this home. Trout Farm fishing, adventure park and Calamity Janes's for lunch. We've stayed in many vacation homes, but this one is by far, one of our favorites. Thank you Carol!"

  • Great Little Place

    "This house was great. The owners were really nice and easy to work with. The house was clean and updated. The kids room was really great and had lots of space for them to play. The kitchen was well stocked which is a major plus. We didn't get a chance to use the hot tub but it was clean and nice."

  • Nice and quiet!

    "We wanted a cabin in the woods to escape to. This was perfect. It had cable tv and internet so we could connect with the outside world when we wished. Hot tub was an excellent bonus. Great Mexican restaurant within margarita walking distantly. Very fun wild life area with great trails literally across the highway."

Brightwood Travel Tips

All Weather Recreation Available from Brightwood Vacation Rentals

Winter adventurists will delight in the proximity to ski resorts that you get with Brightwood vacation rentals. Four ski areas are nearby including the only resort in America with year-round skiing, Timberline Lodge, and Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, where night skiing is popular due to the size of the lighted area. Snowboarding is available as well. Spend your vacation days on the slopes and then rest by your personal fireplace in your Mt. Hood cabin.

Summer activities are even more plentiful and are easily accessible from Brightwood lodging. Mt. Hood National Forest is out your front door, so take advantage of the campsites with panoramic vistas, and hiking trails amid the scents and sounds of rustling trees and bird calls. You can kayak, raft, fish, or simply enjoy the rushing sounds of the Sandy River or the Clackamas River, or in one of the numerous lakes within the forest. Windsurfing is another popular activity here where the Gorge's strong winds create ideal conditions for sails in Hood River. Whatever your outdoor pleasure, Mt. Hood cabins offer the convenience you're looking for without the expensive price tag of hotels.

View Nature at Its Best from Brightwood Lodging

The largest of over seventy waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge is Multnomah Falls, a gorgeous must-see attraction, year round. In autumn, the fall's surrounding trails are a great place to view stunning reds, yellows, and oranges in the trees, but plan ahead in the summer because its beauty is well known, and it can get a bit crowded. Get up close to spawning salmon jumping upstream from a visitor center that's underwater at Bonneville Dam, or interact with living history and exhibits at End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. Your Brightwood vacation rental is a great base camp for a variety of educational and adventurous nature experiences.
