About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Hold everything! This Welches vacation cabin has it all! A great location near the Mt. Hood National Forest - right near skiing and hiking, a private hot tub, tree-filled landscaping, and all the modern entertainment amenities you could ever want! All of that, plus this gorgeous Papa Bear Cabin is even dog-friendly.

From this centrally-located Welches address right on the Salmon River, you'll have your pick of restaurants, hiking trails, and even ski resorts. Mt. Hood Skibowl, Timberline, and Mt. Hood Meadows are all within 22 miles! And in summer, golf and spa services are a five minute drive away at The Resort at the Mountain.

Laid out on the inside like a grand mountain lodge, you'll love spending time in front of the floor-to-ceiling, wood burning fireplace. There's also a flat screen TV, cable, WiFi, a DVD player, VCR, and even a collection of VHS movies. And while you're enjoying the living room's ambiance, you'll have a pleasing view out onto the spacious deck.

This large main level also has a country-style kitchen with all the appliances you'll need for delicious vacation meals. After dinner, warm up in the deck's private hot tub, while you keep an eye out for shooting stars.

The three bedrooms and two baths at this gorgeous Mt. Hood getaway will sleep up to six guests and include features like a clawfoot tub, skylights, and colorful, warm quilts. There's even a washer and dryer here so you can always have clean, warm socks. You're also welcome to bring two dogs with you for an additional nightly fee.

This Welches vacation cabin is perfect for ski trips, fishing retreats, or any family and friend getaway based near the stunning Mt. Hood National Forest. Summer or winter, you'll never run out of activities here - even if your favorite one is just relaxing on the sofa, in front of a roaring fire.

Spend some time in the forest at this amazing Papa Bear Cabin. With a pleasing mountain lodge vibe and a great location, this Mt. Hood retreat will be your home-away-from-home in Welches.

About Vacasa, OR - Mt Hood / Hood River

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!

Nice location to surrounding activities

  • 4 of 5

The "cabin" is well furnished, clean and located within minutes to necessities of food and evening activities.Mt. Hood and all it has to offer is within a short auto ride. The interior decor is straight up cabin appeal with nuances of modern living comforts such as dishwasher and laundry. The main room was perfect for gathering and enjoying the views of nature and the "babbling brook" out back. Wonderful spot!

Loved it, and our dogs had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

If you don't like dogs, don't rent this place! There are several large dogs that freely run throughout the cul-de-sac. They are all super friendly and love to come visit. We love dogs and had our two with us. It is a beautiful spot and we didn't want to leave!
