Overview

Rhododendron Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

Kathy's Kabins has added an Enchanting, Romantic Kottage to her list of Great Getaways. Kathy's Kottage, which overlooks the Zigzag River, in Rhododendron, is located in the MT Hood National Forest. Kathy's Kottage does get snow, especially at 1560 feet elevation. This remodeled, unique, 2 bedroom, 2 bath Kottage, was originally a Lodge for the miners in the early 1900's. Kathy's Kottage has quite a bit of history behind the original name 'Gorton Lodge'. Although Kathy's Kottage has been updated, it still retained it's 'Lodge Look' on the inside. At Kathy's Kottage, you will enjoy the sights and sounds of the Zigzag River and the views of the mountains.

When you enter Kathy's Kottage, you'll walk into the enclosed porch which has a desk, perfect for that inspiring writer! You also have a stunning view of the Zigzag River and the Mountains. (THE PERFECT BACKDROP FOR A WEDDING)

From there you'll enter into the Entertaining/Living Room,(18x30) which was the Reception Room when it was Gorton Lodge. The decor has been kept in it's original condition with the woodsy, cabiney look and feel of a Lodge. The 2 Sofas open up to Queen size beds, which will sleep up to 4 extra people comfortably , especially handy for those late night friends.

There is also a New 48" LCD Flat Screen TV, with DVD player for your viewing pleasure. Perfect for watching your Football Games!

Kathy's Kottage is the perfect place for ENTERTAINING and yet, Very Romantic... Put a few logs into the Fireplace, sit back and relax to the sounds of the crackling fire and the sounds of the Zigzag River.. Catch up on 'OLD TIMES'.....

The Dining Room shares the Living Room and is able to seat up to 8 people to enjoy that gourmet meal you have so carefully prepared in Kathy's well stocked Kitchen, which has also been updated.

Kathy's Kitchen comes complete, with a dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, ice maker, cook top stove and oven. All appliances,including coffee pot, coffee grinder, crock pot/slow cooker, roasting pan, mixer, blender, waffle maker, utensils and spices, etc., are supplied to cook that gourmet or Holiday meal.

Prepare yourself a beverage, step out onto the deck, sit by the railing and take in a breath of fresh Mountain air, as you watch the river pass you by. Or, on those brisk mornings, sip your morning cup of coffee or tea at the breakfast nook and enjoy the sights of the River and Mountains.

The Master Bedroom is romantically darkened by the walls of nature surrounding Kathy's Kottage. Drift off to sleep on this massive, very comfortable King size bed, along with your own private bath and there's even a TV, with a DVD/VCR. Climb into bed and cover up with Kathy's high quality sheets and down comforters. Lay back and relax and take in the sounds of the Rushing River.

Remember, Kathy only puts 'TOP OF THE LINE MATTRESSES' inside her Kabins. No lumpy beds in Kathy's Kottage, you'll get a good nights sleep!!

The Guest Bedroom, comes complete with an Antique, Queen bed, has ample closet space and a TV for your viewing enjoyment. The antique decor and the sounds of the Zigzag River will relax you and take your cares away.

Outside on the deck you'll find the Hot Tub, which is just a few steps away from the Zigzag River and the front door. Step down and look up at the stars, as you take in the sights and sounds of Nature, in your private, secluded Hot Tub, in the MT Hood National Forest. What a relaxing night!!! (Don't forget, swim suits are optional)

Even though Kathy's Kottage has 2 bedrooms, it's a romantic, cozy, retreat for that special getaway, ski outing, weddings, honeymooners or a holiday retreat for 2-8 people. Kathy's Kottage has welcomed several couples who have performed their wedding vowes on the deck. What a beautiful and stunning backdrop!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow!!! I'm sitting here on the porch swing near the river on this beautiful sunny morning with a cup of coffee. It doesn't get any better than this.



My husband and I had a wonderful stay here in this beautiful cabin (Kottage) for our 21st anniversary. We ate breakfast on the deck by morning and watched the stars in the hot tub by night. What a lovely atmosphere yo've created here. We will DEFINATELY be back. Hopefully this summer.



Thank you soooo much Kathy! Without your generosity we would have never been able to do this. But now that we've had this wonderful experience here at Kathy's Kottage, we will be looking at our calendar to come back.



Thank you again,

Sincerely Tonya.



PS We will tell all out friends and family!

Favorite Place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed at Kathy's Kottage Feb, 2015. We have stayed in 17 cabins either on Mt Hood or Mt Rainier over the past 24 years, and we've decided this is our favorite! There have been many great features at most of the places we have stayed, but what sets Kathy's Kottage above the rest is that it feels like more than just a rental cabin - it feels like a "home"..and one that has not only been well kept up, but one that has been made special, as if the owner was expecting an out of town family member or friend! There are so many pieces of attractive furniture, that are comfortable as well, including the beds! Most other places have one couch and maybe a wooden rocking chair! The kitchen is as well stocked as my own (minus the food!, there was plenty of wood for the fire, and even basic medicine in the medicine cabinet! The Kottage had a rustic feel with tasteful decor, but was also contemporary. The setting was fabulous!!! Our prerequisite for renting a cabin is that it has a hot tub, and we prefer that it's on a river. Kathy's Kottage had both, and the hot tub was on the deck CLOSE to the house overlooking the river, and although you are in the forest, the river cuts a wide berth so that there is much light on the trees, and beautiful sky up above! We were married up on Mt Hood, so we love the mountain, and although it was so strange to see such a lack of snow (hence no x-country skiing!), we took a couple really nice hikes; since the Kabin is further up the mountain than many we have stayed in, these hikes were conveniently nearby. We will back, maybe even for a whole week next year for our 25th anniversary!

Wonderful, peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this cabin before! My family (husband, son and two dogs) have stayed here three times—once for the Christmas holiday. We were very happy to see the place was decorated for the holidays.

The cabin is clean, cute and adorably rustic while not lacking modern amenities. We love the location right next to the zig zag river. You can hear the water rushing as you soak in the hot tub and gaze at the stars.

The owners are responsive, helpful and friendly—especially to our dogs. We will keep coming back every year. It's a great place to unplug, unwind and leave the cares of the world behind you.

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are very accurate but can't convey the coziness of the setting. The Zigzag River comes so close to the property with it's soothing sound and beautiful sight.

we used the hot tub for morning coffee and evening wine. The property was clean and very quiet. Everything we needed was there. Kathy & Ross were very helpful.

We would go back in a minute.

Loved the location and sooo clean.......

  • 4 of 5

Kathy was able to accommodate a last minute booking for us. The VRBO cabin we had booked for that week was really dirty and buggy and we decided to switch to Kathy's Kottage. It was lovely, spacious, the kitchen was awesome! The best part about it was the proximity to Timberline Lodge, we loved going there for dinner in the evenings and watching the sunset. The cottage was a little close to the highway, so we could sometimes hear the traffic, but that was a small price to pay for the location and convenience. Kathy was very sweet and accommodating, and we really appreciated the videos she provided. Yes, book this place, it's great!

Short trip to the mountain

  • 5 of 5

Very satisfied with this cabin. Clean, roomy, well stocked, friendly owners, great location. We have stayed in several rental properties and this is the best as far as the property itself (although the location is awesome too). Nothing but good things to say...
