About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Nestled among the evergreens in the beautiful Mt. Hood National Forest, this lovely two-bedroom lodge with loft offers modern living spaces, an expansive wraparound deck, and a wonderful location to explore the Mt. Hood National Forest at any time of year!

Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood more than two miles from Highway 26, you can enjoy plenty of peace and quiet in the forest. The Sandy River passes through the area! In the wintertime, skiing and snowboarding await just ten miles up the highway at SkiBowl, with Timberline and Mt. Hood Meadows just a little further on.

The living area features tall windows overlooking the surrounding pine trees, with custom hardwoods and unique design lending the space an airy, open feel. Cushioned benches line the windows for afternoon reading, and a 50' flat-screen cable TV sits before the cherry red sofa for movie nights. Enjoy streaming Netflix, cable or watch a dvd on our Blu-ray player. Enjoy great sound from the blue tooth sound bar that easily connects to any smart phone.

The home has a modern kitchen with all the dinnerware and cooking utensils you might need to prepare meals, along with a dishwasher for easy clean-up. There's seating for six at the glass-topped dining table, and a sliding glass door out to the deck allows plenty of fresh air to breeze in during the warmer months. In the winter, there's nothing more romantic than watching the snow fall as you share a home-cooked meal. Also, take advantage of our propane grill on the deck to truly enjoy the tastes of summer.

We have also added for your extra enjoyment of the forest, a 6 person private hot tub, just steps from the sliding door off the master bedroom. wonderful to enjoy during any season, whether relaxing after a day skiing, or enjoying the sounds nature has to offer in the summertime. Before you take a soak in the hot tub, you may also want to enjoy the wood fire pit in the backyard situated right in front of the serene forest, and have some s'mores with the family.

The lower level has a beautifully dressed queen bed with amazing views out into the dense forest. Upstairs, a second bedroom sleeps four with a twin bunk bed and twin daybed with a trundle. 32' flat-screen tv with DVD player and Wii with games provided. This room even has its own small balcony on the upper level, perfect for stargazing on clear nights. The open loft sleeps two more guests on its own comfortable queen bed, allowing up to 10 guests to comfortably share the space. The loft is also beautifully adorned with curtains all the way across the open area. The upper level has a full bath shower/tub combo, and the lower level has a half bath for everyone's convenience.

Working while you're away? Wireless Internet access is provided. We also offer cable along with Netflix access for those who prefer no commercials in their TV viewing! Children, teenagers and adults alike can enjoy the Wii with family friendly games provided. Make sure to visit the garage for a friendly game of foosball or air hockey.

This lodge makes a wonderful getaway and feels quite secluded, but if you don't feel like cooking one night, you'll find a handful of restaurants just two miles away in the little town of ZigZag. Best of all, groceries are within very easy reach at the Thriftway near Welches, less than ten minutes' drive from your door.

With a convenient location and a private, forested surrounding, this cozy family home is the perfect getaway for your next Mt. Hood adventure!

Wonderful, comfortable house for kids

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place to share some time with the grandkids- and this place was perfect. There are trails and a pool for outdoor activity, and toys, games and movies for indoor play. My grandson said that he wants "to live here forever!" Very comfortable, very nicely outfitted. We all enjoyed this house. Thank you for sharing with us!

Great place in the Mt. Hood region

  • 5 of 5

The house is a couple of miles off the main road crossing through the Mt Hood national forest. It was a great and central place for hiking in the Mt Hood region. The place was very clean, brightly light, and peaceful since it was in the middle of the woods. The decor is more modern and there was a lot of windows to let in natural light. We happily made use of the hot tub and grill.

There was small hiccup regarding getting check in details. There was an e-mail sent that was never received. However it was quickly resolved.

Peaceful retreat in the Mt Hood Forest

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the house. The lovely windows opened up to greenery and quiet. The hot tub was my favorite location, but we enjoyed the kitchen for breakfast and ventured only a few miles down the road for dinner. Be aware that the owners are ultimately responsive but perhaps not as rapid as other VRBO/Homeaway owners, so don't worry if you don't receive relevant details from them immediately. And if you are < 24 hours, do email/call again as we had some issues with an email that wasn't ever received. That being said, the most important advice issue is to bring slippers or socks (unless you wish to go barefoot) as the owners do not want shoes inside their home, which is fine. I was traveling from the east coast and never received that info until I was in Oregon the day before for business. But we loved the open feeling of the house (we were just a single couple) and its' proximity to markets, gas stores, cannabis dispensaries and great restaurants -- all within a few miles of the home. Our damage deposit was promptly refunded. Thank you Craig & Stacy for a great rental.

Comfortable but communication issues

  • 3 of 5

My father in law rented this cabin for us to stay in between Christmas and New Years. Comfortable, great location, hot tub, great media amenities (big tv, Wii, Netflix, etc). He had some issues communicating with the owner (wasn't getting the info she was emailing) and she texted us the wrong address, which caused much confusion as we were arriving in the dark in lots of snow, and she didn't answer the phone as we were trying to find the correct place. Eventually we took a gamble and went up to the only seemingly empty house on the street and started looking for the lock box. Besides the communication breakdown however, it was a nice place to enjoy Mt. Hood and the snow.
