About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 15

Spacious and luxurious, this five-bedroom gem with room for 15 in colorful Welches has a classic lodge look and the feel and character of its mountain surroundings. Many of its wooden elements, in fact, come from the indigenous pines that once stood on the site. Its exquisite design combines elegance with amenities like a seven-person hot tub, outdoor patio with fire pit, three elegant bathrooms, and plenty of places (public and private) to get together and chat, or escape with a book.

A big group needs big digs, and this amazing home sacrifices nothing in warmth and character by virtue of its size. Tall ceilings create a space that's comfortable, but not cavernous. Its atmosphere is softened with homespun touches like snowshoe lamps, rustic furniture, and a gas fireplace. Brightly lit from sunlight through multiple windows and recessed lighting, you'll relax in an atmosphere filled with plenty of comfortable furniture. Kick back on the big sectional sofa and enjoy a movie on the DVD or Blu-ray player. (There's free WiFi and cable TV too!) At mealtime, turn your cook(s) loose in the big, fully equipped kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances like a double refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher.

The same attention to luxury and detail extends to each of the five bedrooms as well. The master has a king bed with a charming, rough-hewn wood frame, its own fireplace, and private access to the backyard with its deck, hot tub, and patio furniture - perfect for morning coffee! Attached to the master is a beautifully tiled bath with double sinks, a large vanity, separate shower, and a jetted soaking tub. Two more bedrooms have queen beds, one with a VCR and library for that late night movie. Put the kids in the other two bedrooms, where you'll find two twin-over-twin bunk beds and one full-over-full bunk bed. And that's not all! Two futons - one in the master, another in the living room - make for extra room. Three beautifully appointed bathrooms give everybody in your group a chance to get ready easily and in good time.

Kids can get a head start on fun with the collection of children's bikes in the garage. Adults can make the three-minute drive up the road to Wildwood Recreation Area, a beautiful 550 acre park nestled against the Salmon River where you can explore the interpretive trails among the old-growth forest. Hikers can trek on 31 trails in the Welches area. The nearby Sandy River is a great place to paddle the kayak or fish. There's golfing at nearby Resort at the Mountain (about two minutes away). And, of course, in winter skiers and boarders can hit the slopes at Skibowl, about 15 minutes away, or historic Timberline (about a half-hour) where you can also visit the iconic, Depression-Era lodge.

The stay was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

Love that the dining room, living room, and the porch are all in one open space. It made it easy to get together in one room and enjoy company.

Great for large groups

  • 5 of 5

A group of about 15 people stayed here for two nights. One small group used the hot tub and they said they enjoyed it. Everything was updated and very clean. Plenty of towels were provided and there were two extra throw-sized blankets in the closets. We had a 1.5 year old who was just finding his voice and it got a little loud with the house being so open. Overall, we all really enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

Great home, poor management

  • 3 of 5

Air conditioner was not working the whole stay, the management team notified us 4 hours before check in and was not going to send an air condition technician for two weeks, well we were there only one week. I let him know we would not check in without air condition, he than sent someone the following day, air worked for 24 hours and air condition no longer worked again.

The only reason we decided to rent this place was for the air conditioner, we had elderly parents who needed the air continually.

When the air conditioner would not work after the 24 hours it was on, I text the management, he never responded. Horrible management team!

Owner's Response: We're very sorry the A/C wasn't working consistently. However, the guest didn't contact Guest Services to report the problems. We always want to have the opportunity to address and hopefully resolve the issues as quickly as possible. We did provide partial compensation for the inconvenience. Thank you.
