About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Camp Festivus is a unique 1926 Vintage cabin that has been thoughtfully restored, featuring a stone (Steiner) fireplace, reclaimed barnwood and 6 person hot tub all on a private creekside acre.

Challenge your nerve by swimming in Clear Creek or relax in the hot tub over looking the water. Indulge your inner slug, grab a book and read in the hammock.

Feeling lucky, you can try fishing in the back yard or walk across the street to see if they are biting in the Sandy river. Afterwards you can cook up what you catch at the outdoor fire pit or grill, then fall asleep to the sound of water or gaze at the old growth trees or creek view from every window.

You can throw down your gear or tune your bike or skis in our large heated mudroom, and toast s'mores out back or come inside and listen to Pandora or watch a movie on one of our flat screen TV's. Do you want a bit more privacy for the adults then the kids can go down to the comfy TV room with flat screen, dvd player and stereo, there are tons of pillows and fold out mats to relax, watch movies, or listen to music.

The iron and woodwork and much of the furniture have been custom designed and produced (by the owner) to maximize the beauty of the cabin as well as the surrounding area.

Camp Festivus, a place you can rest(ivus).

About The Owner

Having two children and two dogs of our own we have tried to make our cabin a place for everyone to enjoy. Since we both work in creative fields we felt so lucky to come across a property with such an amazing location as well as a great history that we could put our artistic stamp on and it would only enhance its beauty.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2010

Why The Owner chose Rhododendron

Living in Portland we wanted a place that would be easy for our family to use (don't enjoy long car rides) and that would be something we would all enjoy. The year round access to the outdoors at Mt. Hood has to offer is unbelievable. Our cabin is so close to everything (hiking, biking, skiing, restaurants, Stumptown coffee, etc. But it is still so private and secluded, the best of both worlds.

What makes this cabin unique

Right on Clear Creek, old growth trees, wildflowers, options to eat indoors or outdoors at the custom built picnic table on the deck overlooking the water. Two flat screen TV's, Blu-ray, and 6 person hot tub.

Rustic Romance

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place. So rustic, nestled in the trees along a creek. Worked great for a group of 10 women. (Note*bring extra TP with 10 women 5 rolls won’t do the trick.)

The owners are also great and help accommodate to the best of their abilities. Likely a yearly stay for our women’s group. So close to hiking and Government Camp. And there are restaurants, bars, grocery and coffee in 10 or less minutes away!

I can't being to express how much I love staying at this cabin, and how special it is. I first came across it back in 2010 and had a couple of amazing stays. It was wonderful to get back out there recently for a ladies weekend - we cooked great meals in the well-stocked kitchen, took nice long soaks and listened to the creek, and hung out in front of the roaring fire. Everything about this place is lovely, and it's always bittersweet to leave.

We Love Camp Festivus

  • 5 of 5

I don't really want to tell everybody how amazing Camp Festivus is because we want it all to ourselves but it's the best cabin on Mt Hood! Can't wait until next time.

Very pleasant 3-day stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin our family had during the Christmas holiday was lovely. Spacious living quarters and kitchen. Very well-supplied with necessities for kitchen and bedrooms. Beautiful setting. Set in gorgeous pine and fir landscape with view of charming brook from back window. Only few miles drive to Mt. Hood trails and Timberline Lodge. A memorable holiday for us!

Loved everything about this place!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to go with our gut and book this cabin based on the amazing reviews it had. So glad we did! The pictures don't do it justice. The cabin has everything you need. On the main level is the large living room with two sitting areas, large mudroom, kitchen, large laundry room, dining area, a master with a queen bed and bath, a second bedroom with a queen bed and another area off the second bedroom with a day bed, and a second bathroom. Downstairs on the lower level in the back of the cabin is a media room with a day bed and tons of cushions to make a pallet if needed. Upstairs is a large loft with two day beds. There is a large covered patio and a nice roomy hot tub outside off the deck. We sat in the hot tub for hours each day looking at the stream. The stream was flowing and you could hear the water from the house, which was very relaxing. We didn't realize how much it rains there until a local told us it is a temperate rainforest. Which didn't bother us because we just wanted a relaxing vacation. We did drive 30 minutes up the mountain to Timberline and think it is so neat to not have snow at the cabin and a short drive away an entire ski resort. The beds and bedding were so comfortable!!! We did have to time our showers spread apart to conserve hot water. Other than that and one of the large burners on the stove wouldn't work, everything was great!!! Highly recommend booking here.
