Guestbook comments from the manager

This house was enjoyed by all. It has so much character, and lent itself perfectly to our needs. Well equipped and comfortable (beds were comfortable with plenty of extra blankets on chilly days and nights too), I would recommend this spot to anyone and everyone. I'm even thinking of bringing my family back during the summer, I enjoyed it so much!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This review comes rather late (but better late than never!)

We had a wonderful time at this cabin. Our children really enjoyed the upstairs. There was plenty of space for 4 adults and 3 children.

One thing we didn't enjoy (but that has nothing to do with the house or owners) is that the neighbors were rather loud until late at night.

We'd love to return to this cozy cabin!

Nice comfortable cabin

  • 4 of 5

Really like the cabin. Very nice and airy.

Very nice place, really good comfortable accommodations.

Although right on the river, it had rather poor (tricky) access to the river, but this is picky.

Had a great river path access up river for a nice say 1hr hike up river.

If being reallypicky...

Didn't have any way to play music from a phone, but had a good selection of music in cd form. Actually really good!

Could really use a bluetooth or aux connected stereo or similar way to play personal music.

Bed was very soft, so not great for me. Shower head seemed like it was the only part of the bathroom not remodeled.

Stove was electric and broiler and some burners didn't work.

Old Smokey Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Stayed a weekend with some buddies, 7 adults easily fit and enjoyed ourselves at this cabin. Grill was great and everything was as advertised. Some things seemed a little rickety like the stairs but that's to be expected from an older cabin. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others!

Old Smokey Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for a group and children. Great area, close to river. A kitchen better stocked than my own and an eating area that seats eight. Plenty of room, fenced yard for privacy, good area for eating or playing games. We will return, for, the space, area, well worth the fees.

Cozy cabin in the woods

  • 3 of 5

We had 8 people in the this cozy cabin! Enough beds for everyone.

Beautiful location, close to Mt Hood. Grocery store just down the street. Laundromat and library near the grocery store.

It is a very old cabin. It smells like smoke when you first walk in, but we got used to it and the weather was perfect to keep the dwindows open. If it had been really hot or cold, that smell would have gotten very uncomfortable, I think.

The neighboring cabins are close together and the one behind us was playing icky rap music very loudly.

The river is close enough to hear, and theres a good trail along it and through the woods. Very nice.

I learned my lesson about bathrooms, though! We had two elderly adults and a pregnant lady, so bathroom times was hard to get!

The beds were HARD. If you cannot sleep on the floor or ground, you wont be able to sleep on these mattresses either. If you know you like hard mattresses, then you will be fine.

The kitchen had everything we needed, except storage containers for leftovers. The outside propane grill worked great the first time I used it, but then stopped working...not sure why.

People have mentioned the stairs, and yes, they are tricky, but kids would have no problem with them. Our elderly folks did not attempt them, though. One step actually moves under the carpet, like it is broken and only held together by the carpet.

The carpet: dont come here with kids that play on the floor....lets leave it at that.

The dishwasher has to be rolled over to the sink and connected, so we didnt use it, just hand washed everything.

There is no washer/dryer but theres a laundromat nearby...$2/wash and .25/5 min dry. The library is also over by the laundromat and they had paperbacks for sale 4/$1, but there are lots of good books at the cabin, too.

I don't think the owners of this cabin have been here in a long time. Too many things that an owner would fix or take care of if they knew about them.

Overall, we had a good time. The cabin's flaws were good for a few laughs and it was as clean as it could be considering its age. Lot of interesting painting, decoratios, and books. You can tell that it was once well loved by someone.
