This cozy Brightwood cabin is a classic Mt. Hood vacation rental: a laid-back getaway with a fireplace, exposed timber, and an amazing location right on the Salmon River!
This getaway has all the essentials you'll need to enjoy a weekend on the mountain. Cook all your own meals in the full kitchen, and curl up by the fireplace on an overstuffed armchair with your morning coffee. There is a cable TV with DVD player for laid-back afternoons, plus a shelf stocked full of board games for more interactive entertainment. If you're working while away, you'll appreciate the wireless Internet access; if not, you can always browse reviews for the nearby restaurants and pubs while you relax by the fire.
Upstairs, the open sleeping loft has a queen bed and two twins, and the downstairs sofa unfolds into a comfortable full-sized sleeper, allowing up to six guests to share the space. There is one full bath downstairs, with an upstairs half bath to make sharing the space easier.
Open up the curtains at the rear of the house and take in unbelievable views of the Sandy River rushing past, no matter what the weather may be outside. When the sun shines, step out to the patio overlooking the river. There is a charcoal grill for summer barbecues and a table and chairs so you can dine outdoors when the weather warms. There is a set of stony steps down to the river, but it is quite steep and may not be safe for younger guests - although, there is a gated fence lining the hill for extra safety. The cabin is also dog-friendly, with a $10 nightly fee per pet.
Come and enjoy the wonders of Mt. Hood! There are hiking trails and fishing holes galore, and of course the world-class skiing at four different resorts. Skibowl is the closest to this cabin, less than 15 miles away; is just a few miles further. The cabin itself is located just off Highway 26 for easy access at any time of year, but the sound of the Sandy rushing past easily drowns out any traffic noise. Golf and groceries are found just five minutes up the road in Welches.
For a laid-back riverside retreat, you won't find much better than this cozy cabin near Brightwood on Mt. Hood!
