About the Property

Two bedroom log cabin w/fireplace in secluded/relaxing area along Sandy River.

Nestled amid soaring firs we invite you to enjoy our well appointed accommodations with spectacular impeccable thoughtful attention to every detail. An original Oregon log cabin with two private decks surrounded by gardens and water features.
After a day of skiing, hiking, golfing, biking or fishing in the Cascade Mountains come home to a soothing rest in your private five person hot tub, then relax in front of the fireplace in your rich cotton robes with a good book, watching TV or movie.
Just looking for a place to rest and unwind? You've found it! Stroll down to the river or walk through the beautiful gardens and sit awhile at the trout pond. From the edge of the water enjoy feeding the large Rainbow Trout ….. but no fishing poles!!
For a marvelous balance Alder Creek Cabin features personal concierge service, local brochures, maps and in-house massages. From our garden, fresh herbs are available for your cooking pleasure. With binoculars in hand, provided by Alder Creek Cabin, enjoy bird watching at the cabin or nearby. When the snow falls, grab the cabin snow shoes, and head for the hills for a day of sights and sounds in the back country of Mt. Hood. While you are surrounded with Northwest History from the Oregon Trail to the Columbia Gorge and River you will be 'Cozy, Comfy and Warm' at Alder Creek Cabin.

When we asked our guests for advice on what to include in “Special Attractions”, this was the number one comment.

Oh, tell them about the MICE!! So okay here we go…………………….

There are seven painted portraits of little mice, you are welcome to look for them but you don’t have to. They are all in plain sight and you don’t move anything. They welcome you and hope you will find them. There is a record kept as many guests have contests with each other. Oh, I almost forget, there is one included in our presentation. Remember you don’t have to move a thing. Let us know how you did. Coni@aldercreekcabin

Good Luck!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: Coni, Mary Ann and Terry are your hosts at Alder Creek Cabin. We are retired and truly enjoy living in the Mt. Hood Area. The best thing about our rental cabin is: 'We get to meet people from all over the world.'

Why the Owner Chose Sandy, OR, USA:
The property was bought as a project. We wanted to be in the mountains and at a low elevation as we enjoy gardening. Since we have been here we have created a history that we enjoy sharing with our guests including words and pictures. Be sure to ask how this magnificent place came to be.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Close to everything.
