  • Loved It

    "Draper Girls Cottage is a find. A wonderfully large, comfortable cottage on the way to Mt Hood. Lots of room for a group or very comfortable for a party of four. Teresa is wonderfully accommodating. We will definitely be back!!!"

  • Fall stay at Mt. Hood Lodge

    "My family just got home from a wonderful stay at the Mt. Hood Lodge. We had SO MUCH FUN! First off, the pictures of the view and property do not lie, it's gorgeous! The beds were comfy and we had all of the towels/kitchen supplies necessary for a good stay. While we spent a day exploring the town of Mt. Hood (and an Alpaca farm! ), my personal favorite memory will be the conversations we had while enjoying the view of the mountain. The property owners were quick to respond with inquires and questions, the process of renting was quick and easy (which I so appreciated)! You didn't have to worry about meeting someone at a specific time to check in which allowed us to not feel rushed. Great time, wonderful location!"

  • really really awesome!

    "So.. I was debating writing a review because I have never reviewed anything on the internet before, and because I really don't want anyone else to know about this place, but so as to avoid bad karma for being selfish, I will say, this bed and breakfast is awesome! It looks like one of those cabins on 'those TV shows specifically about awesome cabins', and has direct views of Mt. Hood. It is also in the fruit loop, which is a very good thing if you know what that means- especially in the fall. Also, breakfast was better than any breakfast I have had in Portland- which has some pretty good breakfast places. Nilsa is also awesome and makes you feel right at home, but not in an awkward sort of way. You can however, be awkward yourself, and eat your breakfast in your room or outside if you don't like the whole 'sitting with a bunch of people you don't know business'. One more thing, there is a room with a private jacuzzi outside of it, so you can hang out and stare at Mt. Hood in a spa."
