About the Property

Rustic, yet Modern. 2 bedrooms, 1 Bathroom. Located on the Oregon Trail.

Juanita's Chalet is located in the forested mountain town of Rhododendron, Oregon. It was built by The Lake Family as a roadside market for Oregon's Centennial Celebration in 1959, part of which honored the Oregon Trail.

It's possibly most well known by long time locals as "Juanita's Mexico" restaurant. Juanita and a few others housed their Restaurants here from 1961-1988.

After you brush the fir needles or snow off your boots, come on in and see what we mean by "Modern Rustic Vibe". Tall ceilings, cool gray walls and dark wood toned floors make this a very hip Chalet. The vintage sled hanging in the Living Room lets you know this is a fun place to be. The wide open floor plan make this an inviting place to spend time, whether it be with Friends, Family, or just two Sweethearts.

After a day of Mountain Adventures, relax in the living area on the rustic log furniture. Grab a mug of hot cocoa and read a book, or watch a movie. The Chalet is outfitted with High Speed Internet, Television, DVD Player, DVD's, and Cable Channels.

When mealtime rolls around, you'll find a tidy and functional kitchen. Knotty pine cabinets, solid granite countertops and all the appliances and kitchen tools you'll need make this kitchen a Dream to cook in. In the Morning, brew some of the local Mt. Hood Roasters Coffee. It's so good, we try our best to keep the jar stocked with their fresh ground coffee. In the Evening, look in the Hutch and you'll find a blender and a variety of specialty drink glasses to mix up your favorite cocktail.

The Dining Area has a sturdy old wood table with seating for 6. It's the perfect place for dining and card games alike, with plenty of room for everyone.

When the day turns to night, you'll find two cozy bedrooms. One of them has a Pillowtop Queen Bed with a handmade pallet style headboard. A heavy comforter and soft sheets will keep you warm all night long. The other bedroom has a sturdy twin size bunk bed with comfy bedding. Both bedrooms have closets with plenty of storage.

The other sleeping accommodations are a Full size futon which can sleep two, located in the Living Area. There's also a small futon (5'x5' mattress) that can sleep 1 or 2 small people. Bedding is provided for both.

The Bathroom has a full size bath tub with shower and has been recently updated and painted a relaxing shade of gray. In the bathroom you'll also find the laundry area which has a washer and dryer for your use.

The Chalet has a large sunny side and back yard. The picnic table is perfect for an outdoor dining, reading a book, or checking your email. There's also a big old fashioned rock Firepit. Many evenings have been spent sitting around the fire with good conversation among friends. Firewood can be purchased in the Summer at the local market just down the road, please check local fire restrictions first.

An interesting bit of history to ponder while you sit under the trees, is that the Oregon Trail went right through this piece of land. Across the Highway is the Tollgate Campground and the Tollgate Interpretive Area which has access to the Zigzag River and a Replica of the Tollgate on the Oregon Trail.

*JUANITA'S CHALET FRONTS HIGHWAY 26. While this provides easy access in Winter weather conditions, keep this is mind if you have small children, pets, or are sensitive to road noise.*

8 minutes to Skibowl!
8 miles to Government Camp!
15 miles to Timberline Lodge!
19 miles to Mt Hood Meadows!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We're the Rysavy Family, born and raised Oregonians. Mike grew up in Milwaukie, Tamarah grew up in Cottage Grove. In 2001 we met while soaking at Bagby Hot Springs. In 2002 Mike proposed at the top of the Bull of the Woods Lookout Tower in Mt. Hood National Forest. In 2003 we were married in Mazatlan Mexico. In 2007 and 2011 our beautiful Daughters were born. We lived in Rhododendron from 2003 until 2013 when we purchased a Hot Spring Resort in Eastern Oregon. Hot Springs are our true passion and we truly love being able to live and work there everyday with our Family. We still love the Mountain though and we visit our little Chalet often.

Why the Owner Chose Rhododendron, OR, USA:
Our married life began in a little cedar shake cabin down off Still Creek Road. A few years later we bought our dream property, which was 10 forested acres with a huge mid century fixer upper just up the road from Juanita's Chalet. At the time, this cabin (and the other 2 little cabins nearby) had seen better days. We drove by them everyday and saw so much potential. When we got the chance to buy them all, we were so excited. We loved the history of them and the land and wanted to be able to let vacationers enjoy them as well!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Juanita's Chalet sits on a .41 acre forest lot adjacent to the National Forest. Not only does the location provide direct access to Highway 26 with Skibowl only 8 miles away, but there are two(2) other cabins on the property that can be rented if you need extra room for friends & family! The Tin Roof Cabin is behind the other cabins & farther off the highway. It can be rented at: www.vrbo.com/737282
