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.

Sherrie Heywood purchased this house in 2006

Awesome place!

The house was amazing! Plenty of room for a large group, nice well-outfitted kitchen, huge hot tub and a comfortable communal area. Super easy entry and good communication with the host. I hope that I have the chance to stay here again!

Absolutely amazing time over New Years

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful and all 16 of us (8 adults and 8 children aged from 4 to 11) were able to fit in nicely! The area is so quite and relaxing, the lodge has everything you might ever need including whole bunch of board games, DVDs with movies and etc. Kids had a blast in their own bonus room, where younger kids were thrilled to find secret rooms with kids furniture and toys!

The lodge is also very spacious and having 2 dining tables we were able to fit nicely both adults and kids :)

In general this was a great experience and I would definitely consider coming back :)

Lovely cabin in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our group of 13 friends, who were gathering to say goodbye to our friend who is moving away. Nice location for our group who came from Portland, Seattle, Olympia and Wenatchee. Great space to hang out in the kitchen with 2 big tables, lots of room to cook. Cozy couches and comfy beds. Very clean and had everything we needed for a weekend getaway. We enjoyed a winter walk on a cold but sunny day at the nearby pond and lake. We definitely recommend the Heywood Hideaway!

Great Cabin (house!) in the Woods!

  • 4 of 5

Based on my daughter's recommendation, we booked the Heywood Hideaway for three nights between Christmas and New Years. We had a total of eight adults and ten kids, and there was plenty of room for all. This is a very nice, large, modern home, with four bedrooms, three baths, and a game room with some extra bunk beds and a third large screen TV. The open kitchen/dining/living area was great for gathering, and having two large tables for eating worked out just right. There were plenty of the right utensils and cookware in the kitchen, and plenty of refrigerator and freezer space to feed all of us. We had plenty of room for playing board games, sitting and talking, and for preparing meals. Since it was winter, we didn't do as much of the outdoor recreation that was available. We also took advantage of the hot tub after playing in the snow east of Morton one day.

Our only negative notes are that with four adult couples, our 6'4" tall son was not as comfortable in one of the upstairs bedrooms, as the King Bed in the master bedroom was used by our daughter and her 6'5" husband, and my wife and I took the other downstairs bedroom (I'm 6'2"). Apart from that, we had a delightful time, and would certainly consider this for other family gatherings. We interacted with the owners primarily through email or text messages, but they were very easy to work with, and checked with us to make sure that all was going well. For a family that is pretty tech savvy, the WiFi worked well for at least 8 phones and a couple of iPads, but bandwidth is limited, and streaming movies is just not recommended. Mobile phone coverage is spotty, and while one day I could get a connection at the top of the hill near the gate to the community, on another occasion, I had to drive about a mile down the road towards Mossyrock to get a signal.
