About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Located in the forest above Detroit lake, this Cabin boasts the smell of fresh cut pine and tree top views with privacy. The owners have spent a lot of time to make the cabin a perfect get away. Move-in ready with all the amenities needed for food preparation giving you a feeling of home away from home. Cozily sleeps 6 with one room inside loft area of cabin with full size bed and a room below with two full size futons. This room below is ONLY accessible through the outside, has a separate entrance. Enjoy the cozy gas stove, surround sound TV (no cable) or venture out onto the large deck with forested view of the mountains and the small town of Detroit or just stay at the cabin and enjoy the hot tub nestled in the woods surrounding our cabin.

Close to great activities! Just minutes to the lake or Breitenbush River. The snow is usually at the cabin or less than 45 minutes away for snow skiing at Hoo Doo Ski Bowl. Snow parks are near or two hours to Bachelor Ski Resort. Breitenbush Hot Springs is about 20 minutes away for a day of food, fun and tubing in an old growth forest.

Car: Recommended

Located on Detroit Lake this small town buzzes with activity in the spring ramping up to summer fun! Then in autumn falling quiet to winter snows and some rowdy storms that pass through the Cascades. Enjoy the Lake with two Marinas, a myriad of restaurants and three grocery stores. Check out the close by activities at the Insider Guide Link for other summer and winter activities.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We have been married since 2005. We have three kids and 2 Huskies. We love them all very much! My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. We decided that life is too short to work so much and rarely spend family time together. We found our cabin in October 2007.

Why the Owner Chose Detroit, OR, USA:
Mostly for the Lake. But it now goes deeper than that. It is an oasis of calm, grounding and recharging for everyone in the family including the dogs.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
It's endless. The best times for my wife and I is in the snow. Turn on the gas fireplace. Grab a book and snuggle up. Napping and reading all day with snacks and good conversation. The kids love any adventure outside. Walking around town, going to the lake or exploring the woods. We are just a few minutes to swimming, snow skiing, hiking and the hot springs or hanging out in the hot tub placed in the middle of our private forest.
