About Sherrie Heywood

We built this home in 2006 and did a lot of the interior work ourselves. It is a special place where families and friends can make lasting memories. We live in Portland, Oregon, and have 6 children, 3 of whom are married. We love spending special family time at the cabin as often as we can.

A tucked away gem

  • 4 of 5

First off, not everything went right. I rated our stay a four because of how awesome the owners are and how supportive they were of the unexpected situations. The house is beautiful. It is comfortable and cozy. They had everything we needed. The hot tub and fire pit were a great addition. The back deck is covered and we were able to watch the snow come down cuddled up in blankets. There was a ton of parking for the 16 of us. They have all the essentials for outdoor fun. There were multiple tables for games and gathering. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you to Sherrie and Lawrence for a great stay :)

Great place to stay, bigger and cleaner than what we expected

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful, comfy home with lots of activities and things to do over a weekend. The master bedroom is massive, and very cozy....and the layout of the home was really well done. They had all the utensils and dinnerware we needed, and then some.

Only downsides are the location (didn't seem like much to do in the area outside the house), hot tub which we couldn't seem to get to heat up, and a slight disagreement over some damages with the owner that were successfully resolved.

Ultimately though it was a great house and would definitely stay in again!

Delightful getaway for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this beautiful house for just 2 nights with 3 families, and we all wished we could stay longer. There was tons of room for people to spread out, and for the kids to play on their own, but also plenty of room to gather together for meals and games. The kitchen was very well stocked with utensils and tools, there were tons of blankets, pillows and towels, and tons of toys and movies for all ages. Already considering coming back in the summer to take advantage of the proximity to lakes and ponds!

beautiful, warm, and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well-equipted home on a stunning property. It was the perfect place for our family gathering of 16 people. There was something for all ages to do there, tables for us all to be able to eat together in the same area, a large, open kitchen for all to enjoy. The grounds are beautiful, and there was a sense of privacy while still being in a friendly neighborhood. We took our small fishing boat and spent a lot of time at nearby Lake Mayfield, and, after a busy day, looked forward to returning to this lovely home where we could all be together. The home is beautiful, warm, and welcoming. Thank you!
