About Keri Irwin

Randy and Sylvia live in Portland with 2 dogs and 1 cat.

I ( Sylvia) grew up in France close to Paris and always loved the woods, Randy is a native from Baker City Oregon. Both of us work in real estate in Portland and of course Mt Hood.

Why Keri Irwin chose Mt. Hood, The Gorge

For many years we came from Portland to play at Mt Hood but always had to come back the same day (not easy to find a place to rent with 2 big dogs).

When we founded Woodsy Dream, we decided that was the perfect place to come to relax after a long day of playing.Or to practice yoga and meditation under the big towering trees.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

This home is easily accessible even with mountain snow but it feels like a little cabin in the woods.

Quaint & Cozy Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Keri's cabin serves as the perfect little getaway. It's secluded, but not isolated (neighbors are nearby if needed) and there's a lot of stuff to do during your stay. There's a relaxing hot tub, a couple hammocks, board games, a ton of books, and even the Sandy river is a short walk away. As for the cabin itself--it is soooo cozy! We loved sitting by the fire and cooking meals together in the cute little kitchen. It's very authentic and rustic, true to VRBO's description.

The only reason I've rated our stay 4 stars, instead of 5, is because we had a strange instance happen with a surprise visitor. We didn't know who they were & weren't aware they were coming, so it startled us when they came through the gate and onto the property. I emailed Keri about it, but she didn't respond. Communication between us was great, otherwise. Keri is patient and responds usually 1-2 days after you get in contact with her. Hopefully she'll get back to us on that weird situation soon :)

Cozy and quaint getaway

  • 5 of 5

Came to the Woodsy Dream with my kids. They all had a blast! It was super hot outside, but the AC inside the cabin worked great and the next day was cool enough to take full advantage of the hot tub. Loved the fully equipped kitchen! And the beds were very comfortable. Cannot wait to return! We want to wander down to the Sandy River next time for sure. Until next time Woodsy Dream....

Another delightful weekend at this cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit and we again had a wonderful time in spite of the rain. It is fun to soak in the hot tub with the rain coming down and to enjoy the wood stove fire. We drove up to Timberline to play in the snow. We truly love the homey feeling!! And the board games are GREAT!

Charming Rustic Cabin

  • 4 of 5


My husband and I really enjoyed this adorable little cabin near Mt. Hood with great vintage decor and beautiful artwork. It's not completely cut off, but feels very private. We loved relaxing in the hot tub, and our dog had a great time exploring the beautiful, mossy yard. We chopped some firewood, and enjoyed the warmth of the fire as snow gently fell outside. The sweet little kitchen and grill were perfect for preparing a nice steak and egg dinner. Overall, a nice cozy, quiet atmosphere to read a book and enjoy good company.


While we loved our stay, there could be a few improvements. The worn off temperature button on the hot tub is tricky to use and should be replaced. The shower head attachment on the tub doesn't really have enough pressure to be useful, and there isn't really enough hot water to completely fill the bath. We boiled some water on the stove to finish filling it, which was fine, just something to be aware of. Also, the towels are more like scratchy rags and seriously need to be replaced. While there was a basic level of cleanliness, the cabin was really quite dusty and could use a deep cleaning. I'm not expecting luxury from a rustic cabin, but since we paid nearly $300 for one night, I don't really consider this cabin to be a good value.

Owner's Response: Hello Christine, Thank you for choosing Woodsy Dream. I took into consideration about the things that need to be fixed. All towels and bed linens are replaced. The hot tub is fixed. Had housekeeping do a deep clean plus extra maintenance around the cabin. I also updated the site to list that the bath is a European style shower/bath combo. Again thank you for staying, Keri
