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.

Perfect Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This was a weekend getaway and our stay was perfect. The cabin is clean and he beds are comfy. We never turned on the t.v. instead we listened to the radio, sat in the hot tub, went on a hike, played cards and board games. Saturday we spent the morning at Timberline. Came back for a hot tub, prepared a great dinner then built a fire in the outdoor fire pit while enjoying the sounds of the creek. We will definitely be back for another stay.

beautiful mountain cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a great time at this cabin. The loft bedroom upstairs was super cozy, lots of toys for the kids, tons of movies, nice open floor plan. The hot tub on the back deck overlooking the woods and the stream was heavenly! Highly recommend it!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This place is lovely! A great kitchen and comfy beds — and a cute creek runs right through the property. A great place to stay if you want to snow sport at Hood, or just chill out in the hot tub for the weekend!

Close to Mt. Hood Meadows; great amenities and a relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay in February! As avid skiers, the proximity to Meadows was definitely the best part. The cabin is very aesthetically pleasing; comfortable furniture and well appointed kitchen. The hot tub was perfect after 2 hard days of skiing!

Definitely recommend; would stay here again.
