Why Jean Moule chose Sisters

We purchased this cabin when we were instructors and then on ski patrol at Hoodoo. A great base for summer adventure and family times. Moving on in our travels with time to share our special place with others.

What makes this cabin unique

25 minutes from Hoodoo Ski Area. Five minute walk from summer swimming. Five minute drive to Sisters.

Smell the pines, enjoy the environment. Short drives to much of Central Oregon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Perfect! We love it so much here - the light switch plates are incredible. Did you make them yourself, or was it one of your kids? I'm sitting in the swing right now and it managed to hold my boyfriend (who is 6 foot 5) and everything is delightfully clean. We're going to do our best to keep it that way!

Thank you so much again, this is terrific."

Charming, adequate, could use a little bit more...

  • 3 of 5

This cabin is moderate, but very charming. It was plenty spacious for all of our family members, including the pups! There is no TV or internet, so it was really fun just being together with the family, playing games and swimming!

There are few downsides to the cabin: The handtowel situation in the kitchen was not adequate. May seem picky, but if any messes happened, it was difficult to clean up. We only had the one towel for 8 people. Secondly, there is not great ventilation. Since there is no AC, you would think there would be fans. Nope! That can be frustrating in the summer. The curtains in place do nothing to keep the cool from the morning in. Also, only some of the windows have screens, so be cautious if you leave them open at night... you may find a few surprise guests :) the utensils in the house desperately need updated. Mostly just the knives and silverware. Everything else seemed ok. There is not a lot of room in the shower to put your stuff. So plan on bending to the floor.

I found our stay to be pretty pleasant, with minor inconveniences. I would recommend this to a friend, with a little warning of course :)

Owner's Response: I appreciate this review very much. My plan is to upgrade the tableware and knives soon and I have asked my housekeeper to increase the number of available kitchen towels. I plan to put in a screen door and will see if there are screens I can locate for the windows. I just added a fan to the cabin two weeks ago, so I will check. Two portable fans in the house help. When our family got hot we went for a swim or a drive or found a cool shop in Sisters. The grocery store has such a good variety and is cool too. The ranger station, when open, is a nice visit as well.

Simple, yet refreshing.

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at the tollgate cabin for a friends wedding and it worked out real good. There's something nice about leaving the daily grind and staying at a simple and reasonably priced cabin in a beautiful area.

True, just better than camping

  • 2 of 5

No AC and one small fan, needs screens for back windows and back door. Fridge froze our food and we could not turn it down enough. Used our cooler except for drinks. Clean enough and the pool was nice. Would not rent again.

Owner's Response: Checking out refrigerator problem before next guests. Thank you for calling it to my attention. Adding a large fan to the cabin as well. Description states no AC. (I guess one could leave the malfunctioning frig open, lol).

Was a very fun, clean cabin!

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed the entire vibe of the cabin! It was rustic, with just the right amount of amenities. I would given it 5 stars, but it was very hot! They could incorporate fans around the house to move air! Very inexpensive fix! All in all. Recommend!
