"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!"

"I arrived late at night so it was very dark outside. I grab a cup of coffee first thing in the morning and headed for the porch where I was greeted by the most jaw dropping amazing view of Mt. Hood!!!! I was in awe. The home is darling, spacious, comfortable, homey-WE love it!!"

"Kathy's Kabin gave us the much needed relaxing vacation we were looking forward to all year. The kabin had everything we needed and then some. Wi-Fi kept us connected to family; we watched movies (we brought them) and found Kathy has a huge list of DVD's if we needed them. The downstairs bedroom with the high ceiling was mesmerizing when it rained on the roof. So peaceful. We are a group of knitters and made progress on a few projects. Unfortunately there was no snow this year as we are also a group of cross-country skiiers. But we made the best of it and hiked the places we would of skiied. The hike around Trillium Lake on a clear sunny day was awesome. Especially when Mt. Hood is visible across the lake. We were able to drive right up to Timberline Lodge and snowshoed up Mt. Hood in the sunshine. Just outside the kabin are quick hikes along the river and we found a trailhead to Flag Mt. which gave us quite the workout. The hot tub sure was welcomed. I highly recommend this kabin and all the different sleeping arrangements it offers. The amount of bathrooms was perfect for our group. Kathy was accessible by email (or phone) for questions or concerns. We were well taken care of. We are hoping to try the kottage some day."

"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!"
