About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Need a spacious venue for a group retreat or big family get-together? The Molalla River Lodge provides comforts and activities for all ages, all surrounded by natural beauty.

The house is set on over an acre near the Molalla Retreat, with panoramic views of the nearby river. Catch and release fishing, tubing, and more is available in the river, accessible from a stairwell right off the deck!

With its spacious rooms, consistent word paneling, and scattered knick-knacks, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home invites you in with an old-fashioned aesthetic and relaxing atmosphere. With indoor and outdoor fireplaces and ceiling fans throughout the house, everyone will be nice and comfy no matter what the time of year.

The large living room offers a bookshelf, two pinball machines, two arcade cabinets, and an HDTV with cable and games. There's even an exercise machine if someone wants to get in a quick workout, and Internet access means you can still enjoy workout tunes courtesy of services like Spotify.

Between the indoor table with booth-style seating, the picnic table and small glass table on the deck, and an outdoor covered bar, there's more than enough room for everyone to get comfy and enjoy a home-cooked meal.

Your cooking options are just as varied, with the kitchen indoors providing you with ample counterspace and a dishwasher for easy cleanup. Outdoors, you can fry up some treats for the kids with the deep fryer, and use the grill to cook up something tasty for your friends. For more relaxing outdoor activities, the Molalla River Lodge boasts an eight-seat hot tub on the deck, a wet bar for entertaining, a deep fryer, a large gas grill, and a hot smoker.

Up to 10 guests (and, courtesy of the dog run and fenced pen, the family dog for a small nightly fee) can stay in the Molalla River Lodge. The master suite offers a king-size bed and a HDTV with cable. Two additional rooms with comfy queen beds perfect for a good night's sleep. Kids can enjoy a sleep-over atmosphere in the spacious living room, with two air mattresses and the sofa providing ample room for everyone! Two bathrooms are available, as well as a washer/dryer.

The Molalla River Corridor offers a variety of fun activities for people of all ages. The area is well known for the many horse riding and hiking trails nearby, as well as (of course) the river itself. The town of Silverton Falls is only 20 miles away, and with it a variety of restaurants for all tastes and preferences. Of course, between the hot tub, arcade games, and poker table, stress-free nights in are just as much fun for kids and grown-ups alike.

Don't settle for second-best for your big summer adventure, whether you want to play with the kids down in the river or host a cook-out for your work friends on the patio. Reserve the Molalla River Lodge today.

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.



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.



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!

Nice house and view, bad sulfur smelling water.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here, the view from the deck and hot tub to the river was lovely and there was plenty of firewood. Comfy bed, well stocked kitchen and cooking supplies, lots of games to play, nice big TV. Unfortunately, the shower water smelled strongly of sulfur, even after letting it run for awhile. The master bathroom does not have a fan so the area would stink after a shower. Not pleasant. The house needs a little updating but definitely functional and comfortable other than the shower.

Mollala chill

  • 4 of 5

We have an annual all Family Getaway with three families joining in to include grandparents and Tiny Tots. We absolutely loved this house. It was just about everything you could ask for including the view, safety for children, a pristine lovely environment, and a Wonderful House for everyone to enjoy each other. Unfortunately, the oil furnace did not work leaving the indoors at 60 degrees but they provided plenty of firewood. I wish Vacasa homes included can openers and bottle openers. They seem never to do so. The management was absolutely wonderful about the lack of furnace and though it never came on, there was plenty of wood for us to keep a fire going for heat.

Fabulous cabin for families -- and dogs!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at the Molalla River Lodge and we will definitely come back. The location cannot be beat. The Molalla River rushes by right off the deck - we spent hours exploring the riverside with our three year old (my husband taught him to skip stones and I delighted in finding crawdads in the water!), and we could hear the glorious river from most rooms in the house.

The deck was fantastic. A nice grill where we cooked most of our meals, plus an outdoor kitchen with a stove, countertops & plenty of places to sit. We ate most our meals indoors due to rain, but there was plenty of covered deck to drink coffee or a beer and enjoy the lovely river. And that river location - the pictures don't do it justice. It looks like a sleepy river, and being September I thought that would be the case, but it was not. It was lively and lovely, and made for the most beautiful viewing and listening you can imagine.

The inside of the cabin is a bit rustic, but that's what we were expecting. It was chilly (bring long underwear if you are staying in the cold season), but there's a lovely fireplace with wood provided, so we made a fire every night and got to enjoy that, too. The kitchen was fully stocked (even had things like a meat thermometer, salad spinner & garlic press), and the great room was a really fun space. Two awesome pinball machines, Golden Tee & a hunting shooter game. The rain kept us indoors quiet a bit, but that was a.o.k. since we LOVE pinball and our three year old started to learn to play, too! Plus there are plenty of toys for little kids, which was an unexpected delight. Board games, books, Playstation, movies, great surround sound, huge TV, everything to keep you entertained on a rainy day.

The bedrooms had very comfortable beds and nice bedding. The curtains didn't fully cover the windows which was a bit odd, but it's such a private location that we didn't really care. The showers in both bathrooms had good water pressure, and everything was perfectly clean. Two of the three bedrooms have their own TVs, so there are plenty of spots to watch different shows, if the family can't agree. The master bedroom opens up onto the deck, so I imagine in warmer weather that would be a delightful way to go to sleep - the sounds of the river would be utterly relaxing.

Highly recommended!
