Wake up in the midst of Rhododendron's lush woods at this inviting, three-bedroom home, a comfortable escape with a dog-friendly interior, access to a seasonal community pool and tennis court, and a front-row seat to hiking and skiing on Mt. Hood.
This charming wood home sits just north of the Sandy River in Rhododendron, right on the edge of Mt. Hood National Forest. Spend glorious Oregon summers on the trails to Ramona Falls (10 miles east) and Mirror Lake (14 miles east); return each winter to ski and snowboard at Mt. Hood Skibowl (16 miles east), Timberline Lodge and Ski Area (22 miles east), and Mt. Hood Meadows (27 miles east).
Get up each morning to the aroma of homemade waffles, and wander into the kitchen to pour yourself a cup of coffee. As the gas fireplace warms up the living room, you can flip bacon on the stainless steel stove/oven, stack the breakfast plates in the dishwasher, and leash up your dog for a morning walk around the neighborhood (please note that a 40-lb. weight limit and a nightly fee apply).
Leave dinner bubbling away in the slow cooker as you spend summer days at the community tennis court, basketball court, and swimming pool, which are usually open from June until September. Return home to toss your swimsuits in the washer/dryer, share afternoon snacks outside on the deck, and pile on the sofa for a night of DVD favorites on the flatscreen cable TV and Blu-ray/DVD player. You'll even have free WiFi to keep you in touch with loved ones back home.
Whether it's summer or winter, it's always the right time to escape to Mt. Hood - begin planning your trip to Rhododendron today!
