"Pappy's cabin is in an awesome little neighborhood near the Sandy River (there are neighbors nearby, but the area was very quiet). The cabin is small but had everything we needed for a romantic get-away with access to Mt. Hood and other areas for hiking during the day. There is a path down to the river right behind the cabin. We used the stove for heat and it was almost too toasty warm! There is a nice, big deck with a table and chairs. If you sit on the deck or leave the sliding door open, you can hear the river. I love that sound!
A few cons, but nothing that would stop me from staying here again:
- As others have mentioned, the couch was not very comfortable. As it is the only place to sit besides the kitchen chairs, it was a bit of a bummer, especially after a 12-mile hike!
- I did not find the bed particularly comfy.
- There seems to be the beginnings of a wasp nest under the deck (every time we walked on the deck, the wasps showed up). The owners may not be aware of it yet.
- The price seemed a bit high for a weekend in a cabin, especially since it is the off-season in the Mt. Hood area.
Despite the very minor cons, I would definitely consider staying here again. It was wonderful to be able to cook our own meals, hang out on the deck, walk from the cabin to the river, and have easy access to Mt. Hood recreation. A small grocery store, Thriftway, is nearby and that was very helpful for us. Also, check out Coffee House 26, great coffee, cute place!"
