About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

HURRY AND BOOK YOUR WEEKEND IN APRIL, WE STILL HAVE DATES AVAILABLE! DON'T FORGET,WE HAVE SNOW THROUGH JULY!

KATHY HAS DISCOUNTED LIFT TICKETS FOR TIMBERLINE NOW, SO ASK FOR YOURS WHEN YOU ARRIVE!!

IF YOU'RE JUST LOOKING FOR A ROMANTIC GETAWAY?YOU'VE COME TO THE PERFECT PLACE. KATHY'S KOTTAGE IS FULL OF ROMANCE! CHECK OUT KATHY'S KOTTAGE PICTURES. YOU'LL FALL IN LOVE ALL OVER AGAIN.

BOTH OF KATHY'S KABINS (Kathy's Kottage and Kathy's Kabin) ARE IMPECCABLY CLEAN RENTALS! You won't find any dust, dirt, dead bugs or spider webs inside either of her homes!

Kathy's Kabins has created an Enchanting, Romantic Kottage to her list of Great Getaways. Kathy's Kottage overlooks the Zigzag River in Rhododendron, which is located in Mt Hood National Forest. Kathy's Kottage gets snow, especially at 1560 feet elevation. The pictures will prove it!

This remodeled, unique, 2 bedroom, 2 bath Kottage, was originally a Lodge for the miners in the early 1900's. Kathy's Kottage has quite a bit of history behind the original name 'Gorton Lodge'. Although Kathy's Kottage has been updated, it still retained it's 'Lodge Look' on the inside.

At Kathy's Kottage, you will enjoy the sights and sounds of the Zigzag River and the views of the mountains. You will also enjoy the comfort and peacefulness!

When you enter Kathy's Kottage, you'll walk into the enclosed porch which has a desk that's perfect for that inspiring writer! There's a bookcase with lots of books, bring one, take one! Board games, cards and puzzles too. Also on the desk is tons of Brochures, be sure to grab some. You also have a stunning view of the Zigzag River and the Mountains. (THE PERFECT BACKDROP FOR A WEDDING)

From there you'll enter into the Entertaining/Living Room,(18x30) which was the Reception Room when it was Gorton Lodge. The decor has been kept in it's original condition with the woodsy, cabiney look and feel of a Lodge. The 2 Sofas open up into Queen size beds, which will sleep up to 4 extra people comfortably, especially handy for those late night friends.

There is also a New 48" Smart HDTV Flat Screen, GREAT FOR WATCHING FOOTBALL GAMES! There's also a DVD player for your viewing pleasure.

Kathy's Kottage is the perfect place for ENTERTAINING TOO and yet, Very Romantic... Put a few logs into the Fireplace, sit back and relax to the sounds of the crackling fire and the sounds of the Zigzag River.. Catch up on 'OLD TIMES'.....

The Dining Room shares the Living Room and the dining table can seat up to 8 people to enjoy that gourmet meal you have prepared in Kathy's well stocked Kitchen, which has also been updated.

Kathy's Kitchen comes complete, with a dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer with ice maker, garbage disposal, microwave, cook top stove and oven. All small appliances which includes, coffee pot, tea pot, coffee grinder, crock pot/slow cooker, flavor wave oven, electric roaster, electric skillet, hand mixer, blender, waffle maker, utensils and basic spices, are supplied. There's also a washer and dryer added for your convenience. Kathy has also included an iron and ironing board.

Prepare yourself a beverage, step out onto the deck, sit by the railing and take in a breath of fresh Mountain air, as you watch the river pass you by. Or, on those brisk mornings, sip your morning cup of coffee or tea at the breakfast nook and enjoy the sights of the River and Mountains.

The Master Bedroom is romantically darkened by the walls of nature surrounding Kathy's Kottage. Drift off to sleep on Kathy's massive, very comfortable King size bed, along with your own private bath. There's even a TV, with a DVD/VCR. Climb into bed and cover up with Kathy's high quality sheets and down comforters. Lay back and relax and take in the sounds of the fast and furious Zigzag River. You can hear the river in every room!

Remember, Kathy only puts "TOP OF THE LINE" mattresses inside her Kabins. No lumpy or squeaky beds in Kathy's Kottage, you'll get a good nights sleep!!

The Guest Bedroom, comes complete with an Antique, Queen bed and has ample closet space too. The antique decor and the sounds of the Zigzag River will relax you and take away your cares.

Outside on the deck you'll find the Hot Tub, which is just a few steps away from the Zigzag River and the front door. Step down and look up at the stars, as you take in the sounds of Nature, in your private, secluded Hot Tub, in Mt Hood National Forest. What a relaxing and peaceful night!!!

Even though Kathy's Kottage has 2 bedrooms, it's a romantic, cozy, retreat for that special getaway, ski outing, weddings, honeymooners or a holiday retreat for 2-8 people. Kathy's Kottage has welcomed several couples who have performed their wedding vows on the deck. What a beautiful and stunning backdrop!

Kathy's Kottage is just a 60-minute drive from Portland Airport, 9 miles to Government Camp and Mt Hood, and you're within walking distance to necessities. Take a short walk over a swinging foot bridge to a little grocery store, Dairy Queen and restaurants. Don't forget to stop by and see Greg at Mt High Coffee (next to Mt Hood Village Market) for his Great Lattes, Espresso's, Smoothies and the best Bisquits and Gravy on the Mountain! Be sure to tell Greg, Kathy's Kabins sent you!!

Having a 'Family Reunion? No problem, book both,Kathy's Kottage and Kathy's Kabin (VRBO # 88513) to accommodate up to 20 People. They're both within walking distance. You'll enjoy the experience!

Check out our eatery's and espresso shops. We also have the best golf course on the Mountain! If you're into golfing, book your date and tee time and drive only 3 minutes to our local golf course, The Resort at the Mountain. Then, come on back and step down into Kathy's hot tub and relax after that long day on the golf course or the 19th hole!

Once you've stayed at Kathy's Kottage, you'll come back again!! You won't be Disappointed!

If all of this sounds exciting and relaxing to you, then reserve it now for your next getaway.

REMEMBER, KATHY'S KOTTAGE DOES NOT CHARGE CLEANING FEES!!
