ROMANTIC STEINER LOG CABIN AT MT HOOD

Rhododendron Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-10)

Dancing Bear Log Cabin is a beautifully preserved example of the Steiner Log Cabins that are unique to the Mt Hood Area and a highly valued piece of its history. Steiner is well known for having also worked on the construction of Timberline Lodge. This vintage, three bedroom, one bath cabin is located on historic Barlow Trail nestled next to Hackett Creek. Let the creek lull you to sleep as it babbles under your window-- backing to a canopy of old growth fir trees and whispy alders. Cross the creek on a wooden bridge to your own private picnic area where you can toast marshmellows by the outdoor firepit or play a friendly game of horseshoes at the horseshoe pit. The back deck overlooks Hackett Creek and the woods and there is a private creekside hot tub. The authenticity of this home has been carefully maintained, and the furnishings artfully capture the period in keeping with the spirit of the 1930's era. The master bedroom has a queen log bed with luxurious Pendleton Woolen Mills bedding, rustic light fixtures and furnishings. The guest bedroom offers a double bed. On the main level you'll find a third bedroom with a day bed/trundle and a second TV/VCR. Two futon sofas in the living room provide extra sleeping space. The massive stone fireplace provides warmth and a feel for what our beautiful Mt. Hood area must have been like back in the day. Romance, charm and a warm fire await you at this lovely home. This is a great place to experience Mt Hood from an historical perspective. Sleeps up to 6 adults in beds, with living room futon for additional sleeping space.

About Jeanne Paul

We live in the Portland area and have vacationed at the cabin for over 12 years with our sons…skiing, hiking and taking in all that the Mt Hood national forest has to offer. There is no better place to enjoy everything that Oregon has to offer.

Jeanne Paul purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Jeanne Paul chose Rhododendron

We've enjoyed Mt Hood for over 45 years--especially the year round skiing at Timberline Lodge where they have one of the nations only glaciers offering summer skiing (and they host the US Ski Team). My parents honeymooned at Timberline Lodge in the 1950's.

In the summer months we boat and swim in one of the many mountain lakes (our favorite is Trillium Lake) and we frequent the miles and miles of hiking trails--a family favorite being the Mirror Lake Hike. Pack a lunch and eat along the lake or continue up to Tom, Dick and Harry ridge for amazing views of the cascade range. The kids enjoy the Wildwood Park Trail with interactive displays beaver dam and underwater view of the river.

Our cabin feels like it's remote, but it's only an hour from Portland, 10 minutes from charming Sandy Oregon, and 20 minutes to some of the best skiing Oregon has to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

After a good hike we love to relax on our deck by the babbling Hacket creek, fire up the barbeque and then enjoy a game of horseshoes on the deck. Our ritual includes at least one dinner at Burro Loco for a little Mexican food, and a breakfast at the Barlow Trail Inn. For special occasions we treat ourselves to a meal at Rondezvous --they never disappoint. Or if we're up at Timberline lodge for a historic tour and hike we make it a point to enjoy the world-class brunch (YUM).

Guestbook comments from the manager

loved the craftsman expertise, the Steiner history book , all the perfect TLC touches. Adored the deck, bridge and creeks beyond. The fact that the owners share this is a gift to us".

Perfect for our Girls weekend

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the Dancing Bear cabin. It is very rustic and perfect for the mountian setting with a creek runing just a few feet from the back deck. We had 8 girls with us and it slept us all comfortably. There was only 1 bathroom so that proved to be a bottle neck with all the ladies, but we managed. The hot tub was empty and broken the day we arrived but the owners got someone out there right away to fix for Saturday night. This is why they only got a 4 out of 5 rating as we were bummed w/no hot tub our first night. Overall we were happy with our stay and I would recomend to someone else.

The essence of RUSTIC!

  • 5 of 5
My family (and dog Jasper) spent two nights at the Dancing Bear cabin. The rustic style of this 1938 Steiner cabin was exactly as we were hoping for. Even the interior door knobs were rustic latches rather than knobs. Everyone was very impressed, from Grandma at age 90 to baby Wyatt age 5mo. This is now one of our "favorite" places, and it is very convenient to Portland.

An Experience Not To Be Missed

  • 5 of 5
Hi Jeanne,

I wanted to drop you a note to say we had a simply wonderful time staying in your unforgettable log cabin. The weather (early September) was literally picture-perfect and the back deck was our refuge; we spent long hours there lounging and reading our books while the music of Hackett Creek kept us company.

Your eye for decorating detail is exquisite; loved the Pendleton touches with window drapes, valances and blankets, the red and green color scheme, enamel-ware dishes and the "cabin" coffee table books. Our favorite was your booklet about John Steiner and his fascinating history; the perfect compliment to an original Steiner log cabin. We also spent an afternoon at the historical museum in Government Camp, reading even more about the Steiner family and all they brought to Mt. Hood, which made our stay in your memorable cabin all the more special.

We look forward to future happy stays in Dancing Bear. We're rented other cabins on Mt. Hood, all of them charming in their own way, but Dancing Bear is the quintessential log cabin experience that is highly sought after by those who have a true love of the mountain, and its long and colorful history.

Thanks again!

Cindi and Bob

Great Cabin, good location, fair price

  • 5 of 5
It was a pleasure to stay in this wonderful cabin. The furnishings were nice, and the cabin had all we needed to enjoy our stay. It would have been easy to remain there for several more days! I am thankful the owners are willing to share this gem with others, and would gladly stay here again.

Birthday Weekend for a group of friends

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is great. Very authentic and atmospheric, with history.
Cosy and warm.
A little closer to the road than I would have liked but the back makes up for that with a grilling area and creek and table/chairs. Not to mention a little bridge leading to woods and another area with horse shoes and a firepit. A general store close by and not far from other ski towns/timberline lodge.
I had a great time with 7 of us, but this meant every room was filled including the living areas futons. We also had an 18 month old with us so I recommend if people come with younger kids to bring a high chair to eat at and possibly a safety gate to stop little kids climbing the stairs / kitchen cupboards and getting into things! We forgot those things ha.
The decor is beautiful and the kitchen is well equipt, we made several meals, and watched the Grammys with a great fire going. Hot tub was fun too. I would like to come back there some day.

Owner's Response: Thanks Zoe, we're so glad you all had fun! Thanks for the info about a baby gate. As coincidence would have it we just purchased a baby gate for future guests--but do still bring your own high chairs as there isn't a spare inch left for us to store one!
