About Hannah Smith
My husband, Rodney, and myself have worked in the hospitality industry for all of our adult lives. We’ve traveled extensively around the world, both independently and as a family. But at the end of each journey we realize that there is no place like home in the Pacific Northwest. We’ve learned through experience that relationships are most important and we also believe that the customer is always right. We genuinely strive to make our guests feel welcome and so we offer a place where you will feel right at home and immediately comfortable. We pride ourselves on detail. We try to anticipate your every need and want you to feel that our home is your home.
Hannah Smith purchased this Lodge in 2007
Why Hannah Smith chose Sandy
Rodney grew up on 40 acres in the town of Aims, just on the outskirts of Sandy. His love of fishing and hunting drew us back to the area and this home called to us because of the magnificent view (the best in Oregon we think!). Once upon a time a restaurant called 'The Marvel Inn' stood on this property.
What makes this Lodge unique
We fell in love with this home because of the view it provides of Mt. Hood, the Sandy River and miles beyond. People have asked why we live so far out of the metro area and the answer is simply that we get to come home at the end of the day and breath...

My extended family quite enjoyed it, but I had failed to check the property description well enough
My extended family quite liked it, but I had failed to check the property description well enough to realize that part of the accommodation was four bunk beds, more suitable for children than adults. Fortunately, we had exactly the right gender balance to avoid having men and women (other than spouses) share the bunk-bedded rooms.
Pictures do not do this home justice
Had a fantastic weekend with friends over Labor Day. Could not have asked for nicer weather, so each morning we were greeted with an amazing view. Tip: you can watch the moonrise over the mountains--highly recommended!
We made decent use of the amenities, including the smoker. Owners were very helpful in that regard and sent me tips and recipes. Our pork shoulder turned out great!
A stock of wood near the firepit and lighter fluid in the pantry made for a very easy fire in the pit. Perfect for sipping good drinks, making s'mores, and watching the stars.
The home is well-stocked with multiple areas to relax, and the kitchen has everything you could ask for. All the beds were comfortable; all the bathrooms were clean and there were plenty of linens.
As my title indicates, there are no pictures that do the view or home justice. All of my friends were astounded, and more than happy to spend a lazy Sunday sitting outside.
Beautiful Views, Well Appointed Property
We loved this location and the set up of this property. The owner is available, knows the area well, and is accommodating. There were 4 singles and 2 couples in our party and the bedrooms are set up perfectly for big groups. The views from the back deck were amazing (even though we had smoke from the fires). We were only able to stay for one day but wished we could have been there for many more! Picking fresh blackberries in the backyard was a treat and we didn't use the sauna or hot tub but how wonderful they were available if we wanted the experience. The river below and Mt. Hood in the distance (just a 45 min. drive away) welcomes you to the back deck. What a wonderful spot! Thank you Hannah!
House was awesome
Everything we needed
Fantastic view. Beds were great.
No complaints. Had a semi informal reunion with high school friends, then headed to s concert in Troutdale. The house was as advertised. Although I couldn’t figure how to get the sauna working, but the hot tub was awesome.
Excellent amenities!!! Excellent view!!! So happy with everything!!!
The accommodations are great and exactly as stated or better.
The view and outdoor accommodations are wonderful.
I really cannot think of anything negative.
I soooo recommend this as your next vacay stay!!!
