About Dixon Rauch

Owned by the three Rauch brothers; inherited from our parents who enjoyed the place for many years. We're natives of Portland and have been coming to the Mt Hood and Welches are all our lives.

Dixon Rauch purchased this house in 1982

Why Dixon Rauch chose Mt. Hood, The Gorge

A family second home for over 30 years, we are all busy guys so we love to rent it out to others.

What makes this house unique

A great, cozy, comfortable house, great year round. In the winter, there is nothing better than sitting by the wood stove and reading or playing games or watching a movie - unless it's the summer when it's hard to beat sitting on the deck right above the Salmon River and watching and listening as it goes by; with a great view of the tree covered mountains across the river. Very peaceful and comfortable for a short or long getaway. And all the activity you could wish for within miles: golf, hiking, fishing, biking, skiing, and more.

On the Salmon River

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, staying on the Salmon River! The cottage was very clean when we arrived and had pretty much everything we needed. The beds were comfortable as was the rest of the furniture. We really did enjoy sitting and reading on the back deck. Dixon was always available to answer questions and offer suggestions. We hope to be back soon and often.

Serene . . . right on the River

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (and Golden Retriever, Sam) visited our son this past week in the Welches area - and stayed in this gorgeous property. It was a wonderful choice. Some of the most spectacular mountain views anywhere in the area, and you can literally lose yourself in the sounds of the river just off the back deck. Very comfortably furnished, with everything you need. The quiet is unnerving, and each evening and early morning a family of deer would graze just outside the living room windows, walking slowly across the river to the opposite shore when done. The location is ideal, just down the road from a little shopping area with a gas station, well-equipped grocery store, and nice coffee shop . . . among other shops . . . near several great restaurants (ZigZag Inn, Wraptitude are two you'll want to try) and only 15 minutes from the slopes of Mt Hood. Absolutely terrific communication with the owners. We'll be back.

Perfect mountain base for exploring

  • 4 of 5

We loved the proximity to the river! The neighbors in the old Welches hotel house (big blue house next door) were very nice and helpful. The house was perfect for a home base to explore around mount Hood, close to the store to replenish supplies yet felt like you were far from everything as you sat on the deck overlooking and listening to the river flow past. It's a navigable low depth in summer which our 3 boys loved. Has it all very close; golf across street , and many trails and the mountain minutes away! The house itself was appropriate for the price and was worth the money.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I had a conference at Resort on the Mountain so this place was great. We had one day of sun before the rain moved in. Very homey and comfortable home. Had everything we needed for a comfortable working vacation. Internet access was great too.

A great getaway; only 45 minutes from the city of Portland, OR and yet tucked away in the mountain setting and right on the Salmon River. Close to hiking, skiing and fishing. Right across the street from the 27 hole golf course that is a fun and challenging course. No end to the activities available, and lots of great choices for meals or take out.
