Trout Creek Camp is a family-owned property of over 250 forested acres, streams and waterfalls located in the foothills of the Williamette Valley, about a one-hour drive from Portland.
Your rustic cabin is located directly on the confluence of rushing Trout Creek and the sparking Mollala River, a tributary of the majestic Columbia.
The cabin has panoramic views of the clean, clear river, teeming with salmon and trout. Birds abound. You may frequently see river otters or beavers building their homes. Old-growth and second-growth fir, pine and cedar trees surround you.
Over 100 years old, the cabin has a large master bedroom, living room, large kitchen/dining room, a sleeping loft and large bathroom. A broad sitting porch looks over scenic Trout Creek, perfect for reading, writing or relaxing. The cabin easily sleeps four.
The soothing sounds of the river and creek will wash away your everyday cares. Plunge into the crystal clear water to swim in the natural pools, or hike up the river to the rapids and waterfalls.
Enjoy rhododendron blooming in the spring or pick blackberries in the summer. Try your luck fishing for the salmon lazily circling in the river (license required). Hike the trails on the property or through the adjacent conservation lands.
This rustic retreat is ideal for nature lovers, writers, hikers, fishermen and contemplative types.
If you require all the modern conveniences, this beautiful property may not be the best fit for you. Cell phone service is spotty. But there are two wood-burning stoves, refrigerator, hot-plate, microwave, washer and dryer, a landline phone and internet access.
Welcome the evening sitting beside a fire in one of two outdoor fire pits, one with the creek view and one with the river view.
This rustic retreat is a place to sit and read on the porch overlooking Trout Creek all day and never see or hear another person. You can fish for the salmon that swim in lazy circles in the deep cool water of the Molalla River. You can fly across the river on a zip line fastened to two tall trees, and plunge into the water below. You can take long walks around the property and the adjacent conservation areas. As a day comes to a close, you can watch the stars from around the campfire, or snuggle up inside near the wood burning stove.
Bill Rowan purchased this cabin in 1910
This property has been in our family for generations. My feisty grandmother resisted many efforts by logging concerns to buy the lumber rights, or to build logging roads through the property. As a result, it is now a rare example of virgin first and second growth forest. The home is extremely private. Except for the caretaker who lives on site, the closest neighbor is over a mile away. It is rustic, comfortable, and truly away from it all.
Trout Creek Camp is not fancy and not modern. But if you, like us, appreciate simplicity, and enjoy nature in all its wonder, your needs and expectations will be more than met.
is this a 5 star resort? absolutly not!,Is it rustic,and quaint? amazingly so. If you're expecting resort type ammenities,you will be sadly disapointed,but if you love the outdoors,the sound of water running down a creek,fishing,and serenity,this place is ideal. Tucked amoungst the ceders and the giant oaks,is a lovely rustic cabin,complete with woodstoves(2 and all wood provided),a very fuctional kitchen, and a sweet old fashioned claw foot bathtub.,outside,you have the choice of 4-5 different fire pits for evening enjoyment. A creek on one side and the river running across the front makes fishing and outdoor time a pleasure, we fished, we walked, we picked black berries,and had a fantastic time. My only observation, is that better groomed paths on the property,and a little bit better ventalation in the cabin would be helpful. The caretaker of the property and the owner were extremly helpful and courtious.We are so looking forward to staying there again.
I rented this cabin for two nights while I was in Portland on business and had to stay over a weekend. I was looking for a secluded place to unwind and I found it. The cabin is definitely secluded and rustic and it has limited amenities (no TV which is a plus and no cell phone coverage, another plus) but does have a stereo and wireless Internet so you can watch NetFlix streaming if you just can't survive without it (yeah I did watch some NetFlix). I would recommend this cabin as a base for exploring the area or if you really want to get away from the City and just relax.
There were one and a half drawbacks for me. When I rented, the temps were in the high 80's to low 90's and the cabin has no AC (it is rustic) and only has one small window in the kitchen that opens and has a screen. There are three doors that also open but have no screens so bugs invite themselves in. No other windows (there are 17 windows in the cabin but only one that opens) can be opened which is not an issue most of the time as I understand the high 80+ temps are unusual for the area. The cabin did cool down pretty quickly after sunset and was comfortable to sleep in.
The second drawback (or ½ drawback) was that the caretaker’s cabin was 100 feet or so from the rental cabin. Don’t get me wrong, Roger was extremely helpful and I never even saw him after he gave me a tour of the cabin when I first arrived but I knew he was there. If not for the proximity of the caretakers abode I would have given this cabin 5 stars. That is just a personal preference for me, I like complete solitude and it is nothing against Roger.
The cabin is at the conjunction of a Trout creek and the Molalla river and is has a very nice sound if you listen to the water rushing over the rocks, there is also a nice, deep pool in the Molalla river for swimming just feet from the cabin. I also saw some small 12 inch trout (I think they were trout) swimming in the river but I did not fish so can’t be sure.
Overall, I would definitely say this is a great place to rent is you are looking to get some peace and quiet. It also has everything you need except groceries so just bring yourselves and some food.
I will rent this cabin again in the future, hopefully when cooler weather prevails.
This cabin and the surrounding area are every bit as beautiful as they appear in the pictures. We loved being right on the river, and the windows in the cabin made me feel as though I was in a tree house, nestled comfortably amid the leaves and branches. Everything was neat and clean when we arrived, and the caretaker, Roger, was warm and welcoming and helpful. We hiked along the river, went swimming and fishing (the fish were biting!), built a campfire, and revelled in the peace and tranquility. If you're looking for a place to get away and enjoy nature, I highly recommend you check this out. Just be prepared -- no cell phone coverage from the cabin. There's a landline available if needed, but we had to go into town for cell phone calls and text messages!
The closest town, Mollala, is eight miles away by a newly paved road, for those times when you want groceries, a hearty lumberjack breakfast, excellent Mexican food, or to start a day of antiquing and exploring. Wonderful wineries, hiking trails, hot springs, and Mount Hood are within easy driving distance for day trips.
