  • Tucked away in a wonderland

    "We hosted a bachelor party here, using the house as a base for 3 straight days of river floats and two mountain biking trips. The house was a cool oasis in roasty July wether in the upper 80's. Sitting on the deck we enjoyed one of the most beautiful sunsets we had ever seen (seriously, the clouds and the valley framed it in a way that made us feel like we were IN it, and we were not stoned!). The next night we got a crystal clear view of the Milky Way and an active meteor shower. Wow. The only things I wish I had known ahead of time were how steep and gravely the driveway was (though we made it down and up even in our 2WD vehicles), and that part of clean up includes emptying the dishwasher. But these were minor things. We would definitely come back again to use this magical place as our launchpad for Hood River adventures."

  • Cozy, convenient cabin is a great home base for Mt. Hood

    "Just an hour from Portland and minutes off of Hwy 26, this cabin has all the amenities you need for a great family vacation. It's located in a rural residential area, so you can see other homes, but the forest helps with privacy and it was always very quiet while we were there. It sleeps 8 in real beds (no sofa beds in that count); do note that 2 of the twin beds are in tiny 'hidden' rooms off of the 2 upstairs bedrooms, which could be thrilling or creepy for kids - depending on age. There's one king room & one queen room upstairs, with a full bath. The king room has a balcony with table & chairs, and it's own TV & DVD player, as well as closet space with hangers. Downstairs is a bedroom with 2 twins, plus open living, dining and kitchen areas, another full bath & a washer/dryer. This room has 3 entries, including one that goes directly to the hot tub on the side deck. The back deck faces a stream, and has a BBQ and lots of room, with table and chairs. There's a TV, DVD player and DVDs in the living room, as well as satellite TV channels. There are plenty of towels, extra paper products and trash bags, a well-stocked kitchen and even shampoo/soap/conditioner provided in the bathrooms. The heater worked great as well. The mosquitoes do come out in the evening, so be prepared if you want to sit outside. The hot tub was wonderful after a full day of hiking, and very well maintained. The Vacasa staff were incredibly friendly and easy to work with, and the pricing was very reasonable. We had a great time, wanted for nothing, and would definitely recommend this property and Vacasa."

  • Bon Fir

    "My wife and I decided to stay in a cabin for a nice relaxing anniversary trip. We could not have picked a better cabin. It was clean, well decorated, and obviously well maintained. The owner definitely takes pride in his property. We are looking forward to our next opportunity to stay in this cabin."
