Quiet and secluded at the end of a private gravel road, abuts wilderness, property extends to the Salmon River. The small village of Welches has both fine and casual restaurants, a golf course and resort, many beautiful hiking trails, and is about 20 minutes from historic Timberline Lodge located at the 6000 ft. level on Mt. Hood. The views are extraordinary from this historic structure.
Year Purchased: 1993
About the owner: Doug is a retired businessman who traveled the world for a living; Barbara a retired editor, retail manager, and Jill-of-all-trades. We both enjoy traveling, staying in foreign countries long enough to see the sights and absorb some of the local culture. Both of us are very involved in community volunteer work. Barbara is a past president and currently a very active member of the Hoodland Women's club Jed, our German Shepherd, doesn't let us forget his daily ballgame session or walk. He keeps us company during the day while Doug gardens, pastes together our 1920's era house or works in his shop, and Barbara gardens, writes, prepares feasts or does needlework. We are both avid readers and music lovers.
Why the Owner Chose Welches, Mount Hood Village, OR, USA:
Because it is a beautiful piece of land with river frontage and abuts wilderness. We have traveled a fairly large swath of the Earth and think this is one of the most beautiful places we have seen. There are many wilderness hiking trails close by. It also is only an hour's drive from the attractions of Portland in one direction and the Columbia River Gorge in another. Barbara grew up spending summers in a family cottage on the Salmon River near their current dwelling, so she has known the area for more years than she will admit to..
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Being secluded at the end of a dead end gravel road, having riverfront acreage with a swimming hole, a place to watch salmon spawning in autumn, a shopping center only five minutes away and a resort just across the river.
