About Chris Martin
I found Mt. Hood in my 20's when I ran away from Ohio and came across beautiful, historic Timberline Lodge (and a job at the ski resort). After meeting my beautiful wife in Seattle in 2001, we moved down with our baby girl to escape the big city. In many ways it was like coming home and the river is now like another family member. We still split our time between here, Portland and Central Oregon because we believe this is one of the most magical places on earth.
Chris Martin purchased this House in 2001
Why Chris Martin chose Brightwood
We traveled all over and have looked at hundreds of homes and believe still that there are only a handful of houses in the world that have this view/proximity to a dynamic mountain river in a modern, updated house. And our proximity to the playground outside our doorstep (and in the welcoming towns of the Villages of Mt. Hood) and being only 40 miles from Portland make it one of the most exceptional places to get away, relax and play outside.
What makes this House unique
We love open concept. And open concept with a view was a dream. The river rock fireplace is amazing ~ we loved it for its look right away but now realize how much it makes you feel like you're in a mountain retreat.

Our Second Stay....Still Great!
This was our second time staying at the Riverhouse. It was just as great as we remembered. It is a very nice home, very well furnished, and very well maintained. It was very relaxing to return here each day after our daily excursions. The owner reached out to us just before we were to arrive, after we checked-in, and just before we left. We did not have any issues, nor need to contact him during our stay. Great location close to many activities and local merchants. Awesome view of the river.
Stunning home & view
This home is absolutely breathtaking. Everything about our experience here was truly something we will cherish forever. Chris was wonderful to work with and had great recommendations for us. We would highly recommend this home. Location was perfect for going up to Multnomah Falls and then to Mr Hood.
The River House was perfect. The sound of the river granted me some of the best sleep in my life. The house was well stocked with spices and the hot tub was a life saver after our long hikes. There are copious amounts of hiking trails nearby with access to several waterfalls, lakes and rivers. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would not hesitate to stay here again. Thanks for everything Chris.
A river runs by it.
This property provided us the calming escape we were looking for in getting away from the city. We loved relaxing along the river, listening to all the sounds of nature. We hope to be back soon.
I highly recommend this home! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We loved the house. Beautiful grounds, tasteful art, great river and location.
Can't say too many positive things about this house. Gorgeous grounds. River literally less than 20ft from the back of the house. Hot tub was great. Lots of spices and cookware in kitchen. Beds were very comfortable. Beautiful copper tub in master bath. Large showers in both bathrooms. I will definitely stay here again if I'm in the area.
We are at the base of Mt. Hood. We have 3 ski resorts nearby (one with a adventure park with sledding, zip lining, etc.) and we sit between 2 of the best fishing rivers in Oregon (Sandy/Salmon). The house feels very secluded, but you're only a 5 minute walk to our local spots or a 3 minute drive to fantastic restaurants, grocery/liquor store and resort amenities (golf, spa). Great hiking trails very close by in National Wildlife areas and Timberline is only 30 minutes away (a national historic monument with museum, shuffleboard, etc.) The house itself is a delightful respite from hustle and bustle and is decked out to be a great place to cook, sit in the hot-tub, relax by the fire or watch a great movie.
