  • Perfect for High School Girls Reunion

    "My three friends and I graduated from a small high school and each year choose a place to get together. We have done this for 25+ years and this was the most comfortable and beautiful place where we have gathered. It is so quiet, near hiking to Salmon River, to town of Welches, golf at Resort at the Mountain or just plain relaxing. A book club I belong to has met there for two years. It's a wonderful place for getting together and having lots of time to visit, read or just hang out."

  • Wonderful cabin near Mt. Hood

    "We enjoyed our stay at Sycamore Lodge very much! The location is great, quiet and convenient to the Mt. Hood area. The cabin is clean, modern, and very comfortable. It has all you could want for. A stay near the mountain. The owners are responsive and friendly. We look forward to another stay in the future"

  • Great spot for a family visit to the Mt. Hood area

    "My husband and I had a great visit here with my parents and our two kids. Our littlest is barely 16 months, so we brought our own baby gates to keep him from falling down the stairs. Our older son loved the bunk beds, although there is no door on that room as it is not really a bedroom despite being used for that purpose (no door, no closet, no window). Kitchen was well equipped with utensils and pans, etc. The condo is lovely and feels fairly private, especially considering that it is not an end unit. We never heard the neighbors at all. Would have been great if there had been snow, but that's obviously not the fault of the rental itself. We enjoyed our visit and would definitely consider staying there again."

  • Amazing outdoor setting!

    "Our extended family spent a long weekend at this beautiful log cabin on the Sandy river. It has a great open layout, allowing the cooks to remain interactive with everyone else hanging around in the living/dining areas. Kids and adults alike enjoyed the hot tub and the amazing river views from it. We loved all the available outdoor opportunities so close by, we spend a lot of time hiking the local trails. Owner Celeste was great; quick responses to our inquiries and effective solution to a few issues we had. We really appreciated the offer of an extended check out time, made for a relaxing transition to the ride back home."
