KATHY'S KOTTAGE, SECLUDED RIVERFRONT KOTTAGE W/HOT TUB

Rhododendron Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

KATHY'S KOTTAGE NOW HAS WIFI AND UNLIMITED TELEPHONE SERVICE! NOW YOU CAN HAVE ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME, AWAY FROM HOME!

Kathy's Kabins has added an Enchanting, Romantic, Vacation Rental Home 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'. Kathy's Kottage has been updated, but retained it's 'Lodge Look' on the inside. At Kathy's Kottage, you can 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 42' LCD Flat Screen TV, with DVD player for your viewing pleasure.

Kathy's Kottage is perfect for ENTERTAINING and yet, Very Romantic... Put a few logs into the Fireplace, sit back and relax to the sounds of the crackling fire. 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 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 with 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 cable TV, with a DVD/VCR. Cover up with 800 thread count, high quality sheets and down comforters. Lay back and relax, 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!!!(swim suits are optional)

Even though Kathy's Kottage has only 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!

Having a 'Team Meeting' with co-workers? No problem, book Kathy's Kottage and Kathy's Kabin (VRBO # 88513) to accommodate up to 22 friends/co-workers. You'll enjoy the experience!

Live like the locals..eat and gather where our locals gather. Get to know us Mountain Folks!! We have the 'Best Food on the Mountain'! Check out our eaterys and espresso shops. We even have the best golf course on the Mountain! If you're into golfing, book your dates and your tee time and drive 3 minutes to our local golf course, The Resort at the Mountain. Then come on back and step down into Kathy's hot tub and relax.

Once you've stayed at Kathy's Kottage, you'll come back again!!

If all of this sounds relaxing to you, then give Kathy a call and reserve it now for your next getaway. Tell her you're calling about Kathy's Kottage.

NOTE:DUE TO A FLAW IN VRBO'S QUOTE PROGRAM, IT DOESN'T CALCULATE THE COST FOR CHILDREN PROPERLY. IF YOU WANT AN ACCURATE QUOTE, ENTER ALL CHILDREN AS ADULTS. HOPEFULLY VRBO WILL FIX THIS SOMETIME DOWN THE ROAD. I APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE THIS HAS CAUSED.

You can also rent Kathy's Kabin for those larger family gatherings, as they are close by. Rent them both for gatherings for up to 22 people. There is a Minimum 2 night stay, 3 nights stay during Holidays. Give Kathy a call to reserve your dates now..

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!

EXCEPTIONAL ACCOMODATIONS!!!

  • 5 of 5
I've never been compelled to wrote a review while in the middle of a stay, but the Kottage warrants it!

We had outdoor activities planned, which were skunked by torrential rains. We were bummed, but it almost didn't matter, because it meant we got to cozy up in the Kottage! We built a fire in the glass front fire place, watched football on the brand new, big screen tv, played board games, cooked in the stocked kitchen, and enjoyed the gorgeous view of the river, just feet from the back door.

Kathy clearly makes every effort to make sure her guests are comfortable, and feel at home. The Kottage is provided with all amenities, plenty of wood for fires, a clean, comfortable hot tub, upgraded linens, lots of room to relax, and even the nice, soft toilet tissue. It's the little touches like that, and much more which separate the Kottage from the good to the great, and make it clear Kathy strives to provide the best for her guests. She had even decorated the house beautifully for the holidays!

This review wouldn't be complete with out a dedicated mention of the beds, which were the MOST COMFORTABLE BEDS WE'D EVER SLEPT ON!!! My husband commonly snores, so I often end up moving to the guest room, which happened last night. After sleeping in this morning, we both got up and had both had the best night's sleep we'd had in a long time. So commonly the bed, pillows, and sheets can prevent a good night's sleep, which can really detract from a restful, relaxing vacation. You will have no issues with that here, and will sleep like a baby! They were so comfortable, in fact, that I've asked what type of bed they are, and will look into purchasing one for our home!

We were just minutes from grocery stores, restaurants, liquor store, etc, and just a few more minutes from Mt Hood Adventure Park and Government Camp's cute strip of restaurants and bars. Very convenient location.

We will definitely return to the Kottage, and check out the larger rental Kathy has with friends or family! Thanks Kathy, for a wonderful home away from home!

SIMPLY AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
In a world of declining service and hospitality it was refreshing to visit Kathy's cottage. The warmth of our experience from our first contact with Kathy to the sweetness of the home embraced us to make for a wonderful family retreat. My only regret was that I did not have time to cook in the efficient well stocked kitchen:( Next time I guess. Thanks for the wonderful vacation Kathy!

THE PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My two friends and I stayed at Kathy's Kottage for a girls get-away weekend. We picked the perfect spot! Kathy's Kabin is welcoming and comfortable, spacious and inviting. Everything was spotless and we felt right at home. The hot tub was a great place to relax and listen to the creek. Thanks so much Kathy for providing such a nice place to stay!

TRANQUIL AND SPACIOUS. VERY CLEAN AND WELL MAINTAINED

  • 4 of 5
The deck sits close to the river, offering a wonderful view of white water tumbling over the rocks, and sounds of water movement that would relax the most stressed out person!
In the many years of renting vrbo, this is the cleanest home, we have rented. Normally I never get in a hot tub because of the overpowering smell of chemicals. Not to mention they have never appeared clean to me. However we enjoyed this one every night! So clean and maintained.
The cabin was much larger than expected. Very tastefully decorated, did I mention clean! Also, a well supplied kitchen.
You can see and feel the care the owners have put into the cabin.
I did not give it a 5 star only because the plush pillow top king was two soft for us and we had to move to the queen in the second bedroom, which was quite small. Also, we prefer not to sit on hide a bed sofas. However, there were two alternative seating. That is just our personal preference.
All and all a great week.
