  • Very Quaint Cabin!

    "We enjoyed our stay very much! The cabin is as described and has very comfortable livingroom seating areas with a very nice rustic fireplace as well as a potbelly gas fireplace, which kept the cabin warm, and the beds were very comfortable. There was WiFi and hot tub, which we enjoyed. Although, it is located in a little congested neighborhood area; my reason for rating 4stars; there were several rundown homes very close to the cabin and the gravel road to reach the cabin was a little ruff. Not things the owner would be responsible for, but worth mentioning, because we were surprised when we first pulled into the area where the cabin was situated. We'd assumed it would be situated in an area of its own. Nonetheless, it still was pleasant and quiet, and we weren't bothered. We had six adults in our group, and we had plenty of room. Our purpose for staying in the area was to go snowboarding. It took us about 20 mins from the cabin to Timberline Lodge and there were several places to eat and buy last minute supplies, etc. We had all our meals at the cabin; it had a fully stocked kitchen with very nice cooking essentials and pots and pans. We had some very last minute changes and the owner was very accommodating and very responsive to emails & messages. In fact, she was outstanding! We would definitely stay there again."

  • 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."

  • Nice Time Away

    "The stay that my boyfriend and I had here was very nice. The hot tub was well maintained, the kitchen was well laid out so that we could both be in there helping each other. My only complaint about the property was how misleading the pictures were. When I rented the space I was expecting us to have acreage between us and the neighbors, but alas it turned out that they were just on the other side of the fence. Over all a very nice trip away from the city."
