Doug is a retired businessman who traveled the world for a living; Barbara a retired editor, retail manager, and Jill-of-all-trades. We both enjoy traveling, staying in foreign countries long enough to see the sights and absorb some of the local culture.

Both of us are very involved in community volunteer work. Barbara a fund raiser for the Hoodland Women's Club, currently attempting to bring in funds to construct a new community center.

Jed, our German Shepherd, doesn't let us forget his daily frisbee session or walk. He keeps us company during the day while Doug gardens, pastes together our 1920's house or works in his shop, and Barbara gardens, writes, prepares feasts or does needlework. We are both avid readers and music lovers.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1993

We chose this property because it came with the house on a beautiful twelve acres of land on the Salmon River. We have traveled a fairly large swath of the Earth and think this is one of the most beautiful places in it. It also is only an hour's drive from the attractions of Portland in one direction and the Columbia River Gorge in another. Barbara grew up spending summers in the family cottage on the Salmon River near their current dwelling.

Being secluded at the end of a dead end gravel road, having riverfront acreage with a swimming hole, a place to watch salmon spawning in autumn, a shopping center only five minutes away and a resort just across the river.

DELIGHTFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Charming location and hosts. As clean and tidy as can be. Completely accommodating. Added bonus.....the Wonder Dog. Trust your GPS - it will get you there but cell service is a bit tentative. Would return in an instant!

We truly enjoyed our stay here at The Dancing Bear Cottage. It is quiet and surrounded by beauty. Our dogs really liked all the area to roam and the greeter dogs were just great! Such a cozy little place, made us feel right at home. Thank you Doug!

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We were hoping to find a relaxing cabin to enjoy a birthday celebration - we found bliss! The property was gorgeous, the cabin fully stocked and comfortable, and the Welches area relaxed and full of fun activities. Doug and Barbara were so kind - making sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a comforting, relaxing and laid back weekend. Enjoy!

WONDERFUL, QUIET WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We needed a weekend away from home to rest and reconnect from the busy life of having one of us that travels for work. I found this place and thought it sounded like what we needed. the reviews were all great and I booked the cottage for a weekend. Little did I know that we would both enjoy it so much that we didn't want to leave. The cottage is well equipped and so quiet and peaceful. Doug and Barbara were wonderful. They were waiting for us to show up and showed us where everything was and told us to ask if we needed anything. This was a perfect get away weekend for some quiet time. We are both in hopes or returning soon for mor of the same.
