  • This place ROCKS!!!

    "Just wanted to personally thank the owners of this awesome home for sharing it with my 2 sons, 1 of their friends and myself. It was everything we needed and more. Thanks so much for the unbelievable greeting basket with a bottle of wine, candies, coffee, etc....that was an extra special touch that nobody does anymore and was heartfelt. I had purchased this car tow dolly to tow my Toyota 4Runner from my northern CA residence to this awesome Oregonian ebayer that I bought a rebuilt engine from.I was dropping it off there to have it installed.I didn't know until this trip what a fiasco, at times, those car tow dollies can be...especially if you have to backup or turnaround.Their 2 hinge point system make it a's nothing like backing up a regular trailer at the fact that this place had a U-shaped driveway was a major relief.The hot tub was excellent and we used it after skiing/snowboarding every day.The boys loved the place as they each got their own sweet bedroom.Nice comfortable beds too & you can't say that about everywhere.This place really had everything and was quite tastefully decorated.The kitchen was well stocked with all utensils you need.Their was laundry facilities if you needed them.We didn't use them for our own but happily helped the owners out by doing some of the towels/etc. I even watered their exterior plants & swept the deck of leaves.There's a cool little general store within 2 minutes of it too for your immediate grocery needs run by some nice folks & a more major grocery store about 10-15 minutes away for more major purchases.I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a great comfortable house w/nice hot tub, great owners, an affordable price and really close to Mt. Hood for skiing/snowboarding and to nice hiking areas.We had an excellent time here and hope to come back to it.Well worth the money.Thanks again Mr.& Mrs. Owner & Co..You are awesome!"

  • Light-filled home on a peaceful river

    "After leaving a different place we had rented near Zig Zag, which was absolutely uninhabitable, we were desperate to find another option. This place was available, and exceeded our expectations! Grateful to be able to make a reservation on-line, and then confirm with a person on the phone, on the morning of the day we checked in."

  • Mt. Hood Vacation

    "What a beautiful home with all the amenities you could want. This home has a spectacular view of the mountains with the Sandy River out your back door. We fished the river and found this home to be close to hiking,and river rafting opportunities and downtown Portland. The special effort the owners have put into the home made our stay superb. A rare treat to go away and still feel so much at home. I would highly reccommend this property to family and friends. Owners were very helpful and available by phone for any wants or needs."

  • 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.
