Between Portland and Mt. Hood. This cottage is ideally situated for anyone who appreciates fantastic geologic wonders. Beginning from the eastern Portland Metro area, witness the fabulous views of the rivers and waterfalls, the Vista House and Multnomah Falls. In one day you can easily travel the Historic Columbia Gorge Highway, circle behind Mt Hood and drive up to Timberline Lodge for dinner. You may want to make many stops along the way for picnics, hiking, photography or visits to the charming shops in Hood River, home of the International Windsurfing contests. Fresh caught salmon from Native Americans is almost always available in Cascade Locks at the foot of the Bridge of the Gods. Or make the circle in the other direction and go the Mt. Hood first, maybe go skiing or fishing, and end up in Troutdale for dinner at Tad's Chicken 'n Dumplin's! Movies have been made in this timeless restaurant on the Sandy River and our guests always have a window table.
