"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!"

"This is a great getaway just an hour from the Portland area. The cabin is super cute and well-curated. It has a timeless air about it and feels like you're in a story book. The grounds are great as well, with touches of imagination and whimsey everywhere you look. The house has an amazing position on Clear Creek, with no neighbors in sight.
Despite the Viking stove the kitchen is small and more whimsical than practical, so don't plan on any extravagant meals. There are lots of utensils, although mostly of the rental house quality. Having said that we did just fine and had some great dinners out on the deck.
The bedrooms were perfect and my wife loved using the clawfoot tub. There is a nice fireplace and good collection of books. There were a few things that needed looking after, like the grill with it's broken knobs and the molding seat covers outside. The other downside was that the yard has many construction projects going on (wiring, stone work, etc) and although they were mostly unobtrusive it did seem to take away from things a bit.
The Stuga is a real find and I hope they are able to put the finishing touches on it; we would love to go back!"

"Camp Festivus is truly the most delightful place I have ever stayed. My friends traveled from Ohio and Utah, and we were immediately enchanted by the lush surrounding forest. We loved going to sleep with the gentle sound of the river, and loved hiking in the old-growth forest, just five minutes up the road.
The cabin is charming, and we especially liked the quaint kitchen, with its beautiful wood highlights. The deck was perfect for late night conversations, and the Christmas lights made our gathering festive. I was also amazed at all of the amenities that were provided. (I guess I didn’t have to bring my blender, after all!)
The place felt truly like a home away from home."
