About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 7

Escape into the wilderness with this beautiful pet-friendly Rhododendron retreat! With views of the Sandy River, a private hot tub, plus room for up to seven people, this home is a wonderful place to enjoy the outdoors.

The surrounding forest and mountains near Rhododendron provide endless opportunities to explore! There are tons of hiking and mountain biking trails, rivers to fish, kayak, or swim in, plus the beautiful ski slopes of Mt. Hood are just a few miles away.

This secluded cabin has woodsy, hunter-themed furnishings and a truly outdoor feel! In the living room high ceilings compliment the beautiful stone fireplace in the center. There's lots of space to spread out on the leather furniture, and the dining table on one end of the room can seat up to seven people. Everyone will adore the full kitchen - with charming wood cabinets, blue countertops, and a breakfast nook, it's the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or create a delicious meal in the evening.

The master bedroom has a queen-size bed as well as woodsy accents and plenty of places to put away your belongings. The second bedroom has room for several people or the children to squeeze into - there are two bunk beds, one is twin-over-twin and the other is twin-over-double. With the futon in the living room, up to seven people can sleep here. There are two full bathrooms in this home, as well as a private washer/dryer unit for your use!

On the back deck you'll find a gas grill for BBQ, patio furniture, and a private hot tub right around the corner. With beautiful views of the forest, the river, and even a firepit down near the water, this retreat is ideal for group members of all ages! Plus, for $10 per pet/per day (and a $40 minimum), you can bring your dogs to run around in the backyard.

This mountain abode would be perfect for a family or group of friends to utilize as their outdoor adventure base. Mt. Hood Meadows, Timberline Lodge, and SkiBowl are all within a 23-mile drive, plus the Columbia River Gorge is only about 50 miles away for even more options out on the water or climbing the trails! Additionally, the adorable towns of Government Camp and Welches are just down the road where you'll find popular shopping, restaurants, and bars.

Whatever way you decide to enjoy your time out in the mountains, do it in style at this lodge-like Rhododendron cabin rental!

About Vacasa, OR - Mt Hood / Hood River Office

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!

Very cozy, roomy and woodsy cabin right on the Sandy River, Secluded enough to enjoy the outdoors in private yet closest enough to Mt. Hood to do day trips. We would definitely stay again!!!

Fun but funky

  • 3 of 5

Hunter's Haven is very secluded & tough to find. If you like privacy, this is the place for you. Not suitable for children, as there are many dangerous areas getting to the river. Hot tub was cold & then shut off as if there was a short in the wiring! Dangerous? Cool area though. Would've been nice to have better kitchen equipment & sleeper sofas besides the one futon under the bear head! Scary, smelly, fun & funky cabin getaway.

Owner's Response: We are a little disappointed to receive this review as the guest informed our property manager they were doing well and not in need of anything. We would have been happy to assist with the hot tub (which currently appears to be working perfectly) during their stay. The walk down to the river is concrete/rock and even has a handrail; we believe it is very safe for children. Thanks!

Boys Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Spent a relaxing weekend with the guys up at Hunter's Haven. I carefully read the reviews, but I found this to overall be a great experience and would definitely stay again.


-This place is fully stocked with everything we needed (as another reviewer stated, bring your own coffee filters). They had plenty of blankets and pillows, a hand mixer, serving utensils, a variety of different cooking knives and cutting boards, an army of plates bowls cups and a stocked spice rack. Vacasa also provides fresh dish soap and sponges as well as a supply of paper towels and plenty of TP.

-The river is just down a short path out the back door, you can hear the rushing water from any open door or window in the back of the cabin.

-Ample parking: 4+ cars fit easily.

-Comfortable bedding with very soft blankets and towels.

-The hot tub looks new and clean and well maintained - and it was hot upon arrival.

-Those couches and loveseat in the pictures recline. 4 recliners altogether in the living room. We all fought for those spots.

-Some reviews say you are not very secluded as other cabins are nearby. While this is true, it is so lush that you really cannot see the other cabins and you feel very private and secluded even on the back deck. However it may be a different experience in winter when all the leaves are gone.

-High speed internet worked great.

-BBQ'd the entire weekend, never ran out of propane and there was another cylinder if it was needed (we didn't need it). The grill was well maintained with a brush, spatula and tongs - I didn't need to bring my own. There were also plenty of lighters around the house as well as a few boxes of matches.

-A couple of small bundles of wood were in the house, though it was too warm for a fire, so we never used the fireplace.

-Multiple people could use the showers at the same time with little to no drop in water pressure or loss of hot water.

-While it was over 90 degrees outside, the house stayed a cool 71. Box fans were throughout, but we never felt they were needed as it was easy to open the place up during the day and get a breeze going.

-The TV not only had a DVD player but a Roku hooked up and we were able to watch a bit of netflix one of the nights.


-Hard to find the driveway. We all drove past a couple of times before finding the house number, then it was a left up a rise to the unit - you cannot see it from the street.

-A bit of a smokey smell in the cabin, though it did air-out a bit. We never had a fire during our stay, but it was always still a bit smokey.

-Tap water had a bit of a sulfur taste - I would suggest bringing bottled water.

Overall, I would recommend and I would stay again.

Rustic woodsy house near great food and hikes.

  • 4 of 5

This is a well-situated place to stay for hiking and fishing. There are great food options very close. This is a casual, rustic property. The kitchen is great, however know that there is no dishwasher.
