Mt Hood Cabin Rental Photos and Description
EXPERIENCE the vast beauty and recreational resources of the Mt. Hood National Forest with this popular waterfront retreat as your year-round base camp.
WHATEVER THE SEASON, there's always plenty to do within a short drive of this rustic mountain getaway -- from downhill skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing to hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, mushrooming, golf and endless thrills at Ski Bowl's teen-loving Adventure Park.
OR JUST STAY IN and catch your favorite sports plays on a large screen TV. Fly fish from your own backyard. Whip up a gourmet feast. Stroll a country lane. Dine outside under a starry night. Sip late afternoon cocktails under a rustic veranda. Or just kick back in a lounge chair and soak up breathtaking river views.

Hood Meadows. Or mere minutes to a 27 hole-golf course, the area's best restaurants, and shopping and other amenities.

About Lyla Foggia
Both outdoor enthusiasts, Lyla Foggia and Kelly Neal discovered this tranquil riverfront oasis in 1988, while searching for a lifestyle change after a decade spent in highly stressful careers in the film industry. Ironically, the same day they moved into the home, Foggia, a former VP of Publicity for TriStar Pictures, received a call from Disney Television in Los Angeles, asking her to supervise the national launch of their new daytime television show, “LIVE with Regis and Kathie Lee.” For the next four years, she collaborated with executive producer Michael Gelman and his team to make ratings history - working primarily from the home’s sunroom facing the river, when she wasn’t with the cohosts in New York. In 1995, her landmark book on the history of women and fishing (also written in the sunroom) was published and later selected by Field & Stream magazine as one of the top 25 books on fishing in print. Meanwhile, Kelly, who had served in such pivotal positions as head of Universal Studios’ Classics Division and Assistant General Sales Manager for Roger Corman, became one of the Mt. Hood area’s leading real estate agents for many years. Lyla continues to work as a national marketing and PR consultant, and they now reside in Portland’s Pearl District.
