About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Silver Cedars Cabin is located 10 miles from Government Camp/Mt Hood along Lolo Pass Road in Zig Zag Village right on the Sandy River. The cabin is situated at the end of a road with spectacular views into a 22 acre wooded parcel and a year-round creek. The cabin is completely renovated as of January 2009 (only the framing is original). The cabin has a modern/rustic feel with hand-made custom furniture, unique flooring and one of a kind concrete countertops with recycled glass. You can also relax on the large deck (partially covered) on the side and back of the cabin with a view of the creek and a hot-tub.

The master bedroom is an open loft upstairs with a queen bed and a pull-out futon double bed. The downstairs bedroom also has a queen bed. The living room has a brand new queen-size sofa bed.

The Sandy River is right across the street. There are plenty of trails within walking distance and a community pool/tennis courts just down the road. The ski resorts, including Ski Bowl and Summit Ski Resort and the turn off for Timberline, are just 10 miles away. Cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, bike riding and hiking are literally just feet from the cabin.

The National Forest boundary is just a few miles away where you can hike to waterfalls, snowmobile and get views of Mt Hood. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from in the towns of Welches, Zig Zag and Rhododendron. The closest grocery store is just 3 miles away. The Resort at the Mountain Golf Course is approximately 5 miles away.

There is a hard drive at the cabin with over 300 movies, including the latest releases and kid movies. Internet is available as well. The kitchen is equipped with a drip coffee maker, french press, pancake machine, Quesadilla Maker, condiments, spices, coffee, tea and hot chocolate. For the kids, there is a farm animal waffle maker and a toaster that puts a Mickey Mouse face on the toast. We also have Legos, Lincoln Logs, Tinker Toys, and lots of games. For the infants and toddlers, we have a port-a-crib and a booster chair. Washer/dryer and outdoor grill are also available. There is also an IPOD dock that you can connect your IPOD, IPhone or any MP3 device so you can listen to your own music.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent three days in "the woods" in June 2009. The kids enjoyed the well-chosen toys, spent hours at the creek, and we all enjoyed walking around on the local trails. The cabin is outstanding; well designed, nicely arranged and has an excellent "feel" with all the glazing. We have used VRBO numerous times over the last 17 years and this place is one of the best we have found. WE WILL COME BACK!

Thank you especially for making it reasonable and accomodating. You obviously have put a lot of work into this cabin. Thank you very much.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is besutiful, cozy cabin perfect for 2 couples, bathroom was beautiful with huge shower. Kitchen was well stocked and great for cooking meals. The hot tub was amazing, great privacy in the back too. The beds were very comfortable with flannel sheets. The TV was nice, the internet was very spotty so couldn't enjoy Hulu or Netflix but there were plenty of movies loaded on the TV. FYI there wasn't much cell phone reception out there either, but we enjoyed being disconnected. It was easy to find, good parking spaces for 2 cars. My only complaint is the cleaning fee, it was $85 and then we were still expected to clean the kitchen, start the dishwasher, strip thr beds, start thr laundry. For that high of a price I don't expect to do any cleaning.

Perfect cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our thanksgiving getaway here and it was lovely! The cabin is cute and cozy. The kitchen windows look out over the creek and the backyard is a magical fern forest. We loved the location, not too far from ski areas and hiking trails. I recommend!

Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time at the cottage. The pool is not open and looks like it hasn't been in a while. The house could use some updating (appliances) but overall we had a nice time and loved the area.

The place was perfect my trip. The best part was waking up every morning and being completely around nature. It's not that far from areas to star gaze either. Every place I wanted to go was about an hour away so it wasn't too bad of a drive. The bed are very comfortable & everything that was needed was provided. Great movie selection & enjoyed the hot tub. I would definitely want to come back again.

Great Family Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin with lots of great amenities. The space was clean and well maintained and the beds were relatively comfortable. We enjoyed using the covered deck while the kids played in the creek during the day and cooking over the fire pit in the evening. There were several great trails nearby for walks and a nice area by the river to stay cool. In the evening, we loved the wide selection of card games, board games, and movies. Our only disappointment was that the hot tub smelled like it hadn't been drained or treated in a while and we didn't feel safe using it. The pool was also closed "until further notice" because of ill-repair. Other than that we had a wonderful time and had plenty to entertain us. We were comfortable and the surrounding scenery was beautiful.
