Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

Choose your own adventure! Red Root Cabin is such an affordable, private mountain retreat for 1-6 people that you will likely return to it again and again. Take hiking, skiing, biking adventures on the mountain then come back to the spa-quality 2 person infrared sauna. Listen to the warm crackle of the wood burning stove (stocked with wood), cook a yummy meal in the kitchen, and sit on the bench at the back of the property and sip coffee while smelling and overlooking the river. Picnic, play games, or just lay on the large lawn that covers most of this 1/2 acre property. Bring your laptop: Includes cable Wifi, and extra 22' monitor and speakers for your music/movies. The bathroom has tub/shower and clothing washer/dryer. Bedroom has pillow-top queen sized bed and two twin bunk beds. Main room has couch that folds down into a full bed. Coffee/tea and basic condiments provided in the kitchen. Check-in is 3pm-8:30pm on the first evening of use and check-out is Noon on the day following the last evening of use. There is a two-day minimum rental time. If you smoke cigarettes, please keep looking: there is no smoking allowed inside or outside (it clings to the clothes.) There is no on-site manager, just a lock-box with keys. Please call if you have questions about fees/rates.

About Stuart Watson

I am a neighborhood and family mediator who has committed their life to effective communication and conflict resolution. With 13 years' experience as a single parent, I know how important it is to have affordable get-aways.

Stuart Watson purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Stuart Watson chose Mt. Hood, The Gorge

Very few properties on the mountain have light - with nearly 1/2 acre and a large lawn that gets sunlight, Red Root allows for growing a garden, laying in the sun, throwing the ball/Frisbee, etc.

What makes this cabin unique

The view of the river valley from the back of the property is so wonderful, listening to and smelling the river as you sit on the bench. You can see the river through the winter, when all the leaves have dropped. The property is lined with tall cedar and fir trees that you can enjoy from the row of kitchen windows and windows from the sauna room. The house is small enough to be cozy and heat with the wood stove, but large enough to have everything a home needs and the ability for people to have privacy space from each other in three distinct rooms.

Good value for the price

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our 3-night stay here. The location is conveniently located to so many recreation areas in the Mt. Hood National Forest.

Quiet, clean, cozy, cool cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three had a wonderful week here. The location is perfect...far enough away from the hordes of tourists but still central and close enough to do quick trips to either the Gorge or Mt. Hood areas. The cabin remained cool even though it was 90 degrees all week. It was so quiet...very peaceful and relaxing. Six thumbs up! :)

Cozy, dog friendly spot with close access to Mt. Hood!

  • 3 of 5

My fiance and I really loved this little home for a quiet weekend away! Close access to Mt Hood and the surrounding area. It's in a little community but you don't feel too close to the neighbors. I will say that because the dogs can't be on furniture, I would recommend bringing crates or there own beds if they are used to sleeping with you. Also, check out the Brightwood Tavern for dinner. It's close, cheap, and always a good time. The cook was so nice!

Very comfortable considering the cost

  • 4 of 5

My son and I spent two nights for some quality time together and thoroughly enjoyed it. While some of the furnishings were dated, they were all clean. Due to the small size, the kitchen utensils are limited with no microwave; but it was still a great value considering the cost. I am definitely open to returning in the future.
