Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 4

Enjoy a five-star luxury stay in a house without any neighbors in this secluded Mt. Hood vacation rental.

Located just outside Zigzag on 24 acres of private, protected wilderness, this charming cabin in the woods offers guests a true escape from it all, with a magical feel everywhere you turn. As soon as you park your car and proceed across the custom, steel bridge, you'll feel the quiet settle in. A short trail takes you past a whimsical swing set and to the front door of this beautiful home. If you glance to your left, you may notice a beautiful chandelier hanging from old growth trees.

After crossing the river rock patio, you enter into the great room - a room of simple, yet vibrant decor and enormous space from the cathedral-style ceilings and sustainably-harvested wood floors. Warm up by the fireplace and enjoy views of the forest and a good book. This forested home is a great place to unplug, so enjoy a break from your cell phone and WiFi.

For the chefs among you, gourmet meals are an every night possibility with the expansive kitchen stocked full of updated appliances and fun gadgets. Dine outside or in - no matter where you eat, you'll have amazing views.

This is a two-bedroom, one-bathroom home, comfortable for four people to share. The bathroom features a walk-in shower with French doors and a river rock floor, adding a sense of luxury to daily task. The downstairs bedroom has a comfortable queen sleigh bed.

The entire upstairs is the master bedroom. Ample natural light and more astounding views make the guests of this room feel like royalty. Snuggle into a Gustavian-style queen bed, with an additional twin day bed for an additional guest. Draw a bath in the antique claw tooth bathtub and feel yourself relax deeply.

Whether you head out with a basket to collect huckleberries and chantrelle mushrooms, hit the slopes at Timberline 22 miles away, or hike around the Government Camp area, this stunning, peaceful Mt. Hood getaway will welcome you back with warmth and wonder.

**Important Information: Those with limited mobility, take heart: the trail from the parking area to the home is roughly 150 feet in length and crosses a grated steel pedestrian bridge. Appropriate footwear is required, especially in winter, as this trail is not shoveled. The driveway is plowed only when the snow depth exceeds 8 inches, and a vehicle with AWD, chains, and appropriate ground clearance may be required. Bring your OWN flashlight to get in after dark. It is a dirt trail to the Rock Stairs.

About Vacasa, OR - Mt Hood / Hood River Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

<br>

<br>

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

<br>

<br>

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great Experience! You'll want to stay longer than you plan....

  • 5 of 5

I'll start by saying I stayed at the Swedish Stuga for two nights and wish I was able to stay for a full week. The charm and the distinctiveness of this cabin is a real experience. From the quirky decor and accoutrements of the house and surrounding land...to the creek within feet of the cabin...the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere when you're really not....it's an experience that is hard to put into words but one that you will be sad at its end. Another review talked about being off-the-grid, and there was a peace of mind that I found at the Stuga that I was surprised by and I wasn't ready for it to end. Also, the local Vacasa representative was super quick and helpful when I had questions.

And the price! For what you are getting, the price is unbeatable.

A tip for future visitors...you'll want to stay longer than two nights. Four would have been ideal---you almost need a little time to unwind before really enjoying the whole off-the-grid thing and ambience. Also, consider stopping for groceries at a Safeway on the way, as the local grocery is limited and a little pricey.

Loved this house and its location for its quirkiness, loveliness and sense of isolation from the world. It is ideal for a couple.

Magical experience

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Stuga. It was a nice getaway from the city tucked in a beautiful forest landscape. My son especially loved exploring the grounds to find interesting items throughout the property. Absolutely beautiful. Enjoyed outdoor dining and roasting smores near the river. Can't wait for our next stay here.

Stunning stuga!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem! I will definitely try to stay here on my next visit to the Mt. Hood area! The host takes great care of their guests, and makes sure that all ammenities are covered! Not having internet or phone service was a plus in my opinion...so nice to disconnect from the world and be surrounded by a natural playground for a few days!
