  • Adamsview -1 The perfect getaway!

    "We enjoyed a long weekend at this house last week. I won't repeat what everyone else has said (great views, nice location, etc.). We enjoyed the outdoor grill and the well-stocked kitchen. There were plenty of towels and the beds were very comfortable. Most of all, the owner is great to work with. I made my reservation only 4 days in advance, and he was very quick and easy to work with. Our deposit was returned in less than a week. I highly recommend this rental!"

    "We had a wonderful time at this cozy cabin! When we first got there we just kept saying "love it, love it!". We really like country decor and felt like we were living in a page of Country magazine. One of the first things we do when we go on vacation, whether we're camping in a tent or cabin, is get some fresh flowers for the table, so it was a wonderful surprise to have fresh flowers already there. We didn't use the barbecue, but made a fire in the big outdoor fireplace. It was great! Listening to the sound of the river right next to us as we sat outside was very relaxing. We also got a lot of hiking in. We hiked up Mt. Hood until the snow made us turn back. It was so beautiful! Soaked in the claw foot tub after the hike. Went to a nearby restaurant, the Rendevous, for lunch one day. Delicious! Stopped at Timberline lodge on the way home and had breakfast. It was a great way to end our vacation. We couldn't have had better weather. Everything was perfect!"
