SPECTACULAR VIEWS FROM PRIVATE CHALET ON SANDY RIVER ON 5 ACRES

Rhododendron Chalet Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom Chalet. Sleeps Up To 14 People.

If you are looking for the most comfortable and relaxing environment from which to enjoy everything Mt. Hood has to offer, you have probably found what you are looking for. Whether it’s for a weekend retreat, a family trip, a ski outing, a romantic escape, or just to get away from it all, you will not find a more relaxing, more private, better appointed house with better views anywhere on Mt. Hood.

Located in Rhododendron in the Mt. Hood National Forest, right next to Welches, OR, this magnificent 2,300 sq-ft chalet can sleep up to 14 people, boasts 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, granite counters in kitchen, hot tub on deck, and is located on almost 5 acres of pristine, private forest right next to the beautiful Sandy River. Are there nicer, bigger houses on Mt. Hood? Sure there are, but are there any that are closer to the river with more breathtaking views? It’s a real paradise for nature lovers, and the area around the house is the best playground for both adults and children.

This Mt. Hood house is located less than an hour away from the Portland airport and is 10 minutes from Ski Bowl. It's a real paradise all year round.

Whereas the house itself is immaculate, beautifully furnished and has everything you could possibly need, it’s the views that will keep you coming back every year once you have experienced it. As one of our guests aptly put it, “it’s heaven on earth”, and it really is. You have perfect views of the river and mountains from the huge deck that wraps around 3 sides of the house, and you are literally only steps away from the water.

Although every room in the house offers views of the river, the dining room/solarium has wall-to-ceiling, two-story windows that offer majestic views of the river and mountain. Even when you are not eating, it's the perfect room in which to relax with friends or family and take in the beautiful surroundings. The dining room has 8 chairs, but you can squeeze in 2 more chairs to seat 10.

The kitchen is a chef’s delight as it boasts granite counter-tops, hardwood floors, gas range, restaurant-type faucet, a large island, Bosch dishwasher, and all the pots and utensils you could possibly need.

Four nicely appointed bedrooms each have their own style and colors and were named after the seasons. They all have different, mountain-themed beds, and one of the rooms has 2 sets of bunks and a sofa-bed. For relaxing in the evening there is a nice hot tub on the deck with a view towards the river. There is a nice pool table in the garage as well.

Part of what makes this house special is that it gets sun all day long. Most houses on Mt. Hood are blocked from the sun by all the trees that surround them. Since the chalet is right on the bank of the river and this portion of the river runs East to West, you get sun all day long, making it a much more enjoyable experience.

Being higher up on the mountain than Welches means that in the winter the snow stays on the ground more often than in Welches or other areas. This means that if you want a white holiday season or you like to see snow in the winter, you have a better chance at this house than you do at most others. There isn't snow on the ground all winter long, but when there is it's quite breathtaking.

About Luis

I go up to the house almost every weekend when it's not rented. I am an outdoors enthusiast, and my biggest problem is deciding what fun activity I'm going to do any particular day because there's so much to do on the mountain.

Luis purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Luis chose Rhododendron

I bought this house because of the views and the proximity to nature. I have not seen anything like it on Mt. Hood. Besides that, the house is immaculate inside and very well designed. It's just a very cozy house while being relatively modern at the same time. The privacy you enjoy here is quite unique too because there are no nearby neighbors. Even though you are only 2 miles away from stores and restaurants, you really feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.

What makes this chalet unique

In the summertime, you have no idea how nice it is to go to sleep and wake up listening to the rushing water of the river below. It is very serene and relaxing. The trails that start on the property are quite unique as well, and there is usually fauna to be seen almost every day, from deer to bobcats to all kinds of birds to raccoons to a large bald eagle that lives nearby to a small bear that wanders around sometimes at night (it's a small black bear that is scared of people, so it's almost impossible to see it and it has never bothered anyone).

Guestbook comments from the owner

This property is simply stunning, right on the river with no one around. The house accommodated our group of 8 couples very well. The living room area is a nice open space to gather, while the upstairs and downstairs rooms provided privacy. We really loved the Russian fireplace, which slowly warmed the whole house. The owner was very helpful in answering our questions and concerns and was overall great to work with. The property is in such a great location, just a few minutes from the store and a few minutes to snowshoeing/hiking. I hope we get a chance to make it back there!

Great Riverside Comfort

  • 5 of 5
We had a really great stay here and enjoyed all that this place has to offer: right on the river, spaciousness, privacy, hot-tub, outdoor fire-pit and more. Luis, the owner was great to work with and I hope to be back with another group in the future.

Great home just minutes from the mountain

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay in this perfect home for our annual women's snow shoe weekend. The house is perfect for our large group, the setting on the river is gorgeous and within minutes we can be at the mountain strapping on our snow shoes or skis for some fun! The garage is handy for all our gear and the hot tub is a must after a hard workout! We are looking forward to a return trip there next February and hopefully one this summer too!

Beautiful, private home - perfect for large groups!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful place! I rented this home for a large group of friends for a weekend away on the mountain and could not have been more pleased. The house was well stocked with everything we needed and the layout of the home and property in general was breathtaking. We absolutely loved being able to hang out on the deck right off the river and also very much enjoyed the hot tub. We will definitely be renting again sometime in the near future!

Christmas Stay

  • 5 of 5
We travelled from Sydney,Australia to spend Christmas together. As a family of 8 this home provided a wonderful place to get together. The kids loved the pool table and the surrounds were great for daily walks. The living areas are comfortable, especially the beautiful view of the rushing creek from the dining area. The bedrooms were large and beds very comfortable. Maybe the bunk bed area needs a little attention to layout and bed quality but good to have as a separate area downstairs for the kids. While we were hoping for snow to make a white Christmas it didn't happen this year. The pictures here are amazing and the owner informed us that the snow may not come at the time we were there so we knew this was only a chance. Easy drive up to Government Camp and Mount Hood. Highly recommend this home for a wilderness experience!

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this home. Right on the river with tons of privacy! Meet with the owner for info and keys, he was very nice and accommodating. We have three kids and they loved all the space and the hot tub outside. It was cozy and comfortable and very clean. The area was beautiful and close to lots of hike and bike riding. We loved the beautiful hike along the Salmon River , it was amazing! Moss everywhere. We would definitely stay there again!!!!!

gorgeous and private

  • 5 of 5
We loved this place. The house is spacious, clean, and really well-kept, very nice in every way. I agree with other reviewers that the photos, while they represent the place honestly, don't quite convey how nice it really is. The grounds and riverside location are equally great. We really appreciated the privacy provided by the long driveway and the spacious grounds, and also liked that it is on an open spot on the river bank, surrounded by trees, but not under them. Ripe blueberries from the big bush by the front door were an unexpected bonus! The sound of the rushing river provides a nice background and is great for sleeping. The location has easy access to Mt. Hood trailheads and other activities. Highly recommended!

This is a truly privileged location on the mountain. Complete privacy on over 5 acres of pristine forest. Besides the Sandy river, there is a creek that also runs through the property. You can fish from right in front of the house or go to other fishing spots on the river. You can put your kayak in right in front of the house or in the summertime you can go in the river to cool off or tube down the river.

There is a great single track trail for either mountain-biking or hiking that weaves in and out from the edge of the river. You are 10-20 minutes away from a large variety of outdoor activities in the area.
