Have a rustic cabin in the woods experience, but with modern comforts in this dog-friendly, two-bedroom, one-bathroom Welches vacation rental with space for up to four mountain-loving guests and one friendly dog (for a small nightly fee). Secluded among towering cedars and firs, this abode offers great amenities like indoor and outdoor fireplaces and a private hot tub, and it's just minutes to unbridled wilderness along the Salmon River on Mount Hood!
Located just past the Resort at the Mountain's golf course on the south side of Mount Hood, The Cedars is a quiet escape from the bustle of Portland, which is just 46 miles away but a whole world apart. It's also just a few short miles south to the picturesque Salmon River - the entire length of which is given federal protection under its "Wild and Scenic River" designation. Fishing, kayaking, hiking, rock climbing, and many more outdoor activities are within an easy four-mile drive to the trails of the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness.
The home itself is perfect for a relaxing weekend trip with a few friends or a romantic getaway with a loved one. With wood panel walls, a quaint fireplace, and comfy couches and chairs, the living room beckons for you to settle in and make yourself at home. In this room you'll also find a TV with a DVD player, and a CD player and iPod dock for use.
You can enjoy the outdoors, even if there's a chill in the air, thanks to the outdoor fireplace on the porch or soak away your cares in your private hot tub. Back inside, you can also find WiFi, and a collection of games, books, and puzzles for entertainment during a downpour. From late fall to early spring, there's even a creek that runs on the property!
The home's well-stocked kitchen is compact but offers modern appliances and enough cooking space to whip up a great meal. And when the meal is ready, enjoy it at the four-seat wood table adjacent to the kitchen.
When it's time for sleep, retire to either of the home's two bedrooms, which have queen beds that will comfortably accommodate up to four guests. Modestly furnished but comfortable, these rooms are also bright with plenty of natural light streaming in from picture windows.
Only 19 miles to Timberline Lodge and Ski Area and 24 miles to Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort, this home's location is perfect for skiers and snowboarders looking for a peaceful stay that's far enough from any crowds yet close enough to easily get to the slopes.
Tranquil and relaxing, this dog-friendly, two-bedroom Mount Hood vacation rental is a peaceful escape from the city into the beautiful mountain wilderness of Oregon's tallest mountain!
