About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 6

Perfect for a rustic vacation away from the stress of daily life, this Rhododendron riverfront cottage on the Sandy River is an amazing place to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.

Small and quiet Rhododendron, Oregon, is located between Sandy and Mt. Hood (about 20 minutes from each), so between the river, the forests, and the mountain, you will have no shortage of wilderness to appreciate! This particular home is located at the end of the street in a very quiet, family neighborhood, and a short path in the backyard leads directly to the beautiful Sandy River.

The house itself was recently remodeled and has a comfortable, cabin-theme decor with an efficient floor plan and minimal electronic distractions. The living room has plenty of seating for a small family to sit around the gas fireplace and play one of the board games provided. WiFi and a selection of books are also available, so you won't even notice the lack of a TV! In the full kitchen you will find gorgeous tile countertops and all the major appliances and everything you will need to cook a meal for yourself and your guests.

Downstairs also has a full bathroom, washer and dryer, and a sofa in the living room that can fold out to a bed at night. Upstairs there is a loft area and a daybed with a trundle bed, plus the master bedroom which features a half-bathroom and a king-size bed. With all the sleeping spaces packed into this home, up to six people (plus two 20-pound or less dogs, though a nightly fee per dog and minimum fee per stay will apply) can sleep comfortably! And right out the back door is a nice deck and a fire pit, plus the path that will lead you a short way to the river.

This home has easy access to many outdoor activities: wading, exploring, or fishing in the river is just steps away, hiking and biking trails in the forest are 3 miles down the road, golfing and restaurants in Welches are 2 miles away, and Mt. Hood's Timberline Lodge is just 20 miles east. The rustic cottage would be a perfect place to spend a few days enjoying the sights and sounds of nature, whether you venture to the mountain or stay in the comfort of your vacation home.

If a nature-filled retreat close to all sorts of outdoor activities sounds like your idea of a good time, this rental property is waiting for you!

About Vacasa, OR - Mt Hood / Hood River Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family��s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website��could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Beautiful cabin by the river

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful stay at the cabin by the river. We enjoyed the solitude and proximity to not only the river but to town. We'll definitely be back!

After the eclipse...

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 were looking for a place to land after witnessing the total solar eclipse in Madras. It was our good fortune to rent this cabin and the two cabins immediately to the west to accommodate our group for three nights. This cabin was ideal for 3 of us, with two upstairs, and one on the futon couch. Lovingly appointed and maintained. Very clean upon our arrival.

Lovely Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We loved this cabin. We could have stayed there longer if we could. Feedback to make it even better has been sent to Vacasa directly. The river is really short distance and a great place to relax.

Wonderful getaway tucked in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be staying here again! We loved everything about it for our family of 4 (plus two little fur balls). My husband spent every day fishing (the Sandy runs through the backyard). We spent a day at Frog Lake (about 1/2 hr drive) as well and the kids and dogs loved it there. We loved that this house feels like you are miles from anywhere, tucked in the woods, when in fact you are quite close to Welches where you can visit a Pub, Espresso Shop, or Thriftway. Or even golf at Resort at the Mountain if you want. We loved the decor and the beds were very comfortable. Thank you for opening up your home and allowing our dogs to come! They enjoyed their stay as much as we did :)

Nice, cozy spot

  • 4 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed here. The location is very nice and quiet, and we love falling asleep to the sound of the river. We find it very comfortable for a couple (but would be crowded if you added a child or two).

Cozy, quiet cabin! Would stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay! The cabin was very clean and comfortable. It was nicely updated with homey cabin decor. All the necessities were covered. We especially enjoyed sitting on the back deck relaxing in the peaceful surroundings. The bedroom was very comfortable and spacious and well equipped. It would be nice to have a mirror and small vanity in the half bath.

Vacasa was excellent in communication and service! We rate them Top Notch! A memorable time and we definitely would book this spot again.
