SANDY RIVER RETREAT IN WELCHES

Welches House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This four bedroom vacation home has everything you could dream of for a special mountain getaway - a tree and fern filled landscape, cozy wood stove, a scenic, fast-running river right out back, and plenty of easy-going character. And if there are any golfers in your group, Welches is the place for a truly memorable trip, as the very first Oregon golf course is less than a mile away!

Hidden back among the trees, surrounded by blooming foxglove and a bubbling pond, this home makes quite an impression upon arrival. Inside, you'll be greeted with a lovely sunken living room with tall ceilings, mountain cabin decor, lots of windows, and colorful nature-themed art hanging on the walls. It will be easy to find a comfortable spot to relax in this very family-friendly interior! Just sit back, put your feet up, and enjoy the warmth of a wood stove fire. Aside from reading a good book while you relax, there's also a TV with DVD player and VCR, plus some DVDs and VHS movies to pick from. On chilly evenings you can gather everyone around for a movie night or a board game.

The dining room and kitchen are open and bright with dining room table seating for eight. The breakfast bar holds three extra stools and is great for quick snacks or just reading the morning paper with a cup of coffee. In addition to all the major appliances you'd expect, there's also a toaster oven, microwave, coffee grinder, and tea kettle. Also plenty of dishes, glasses, and silverware. Breakfasts like banana nut pancakes or chive scrambled eggs and bacon will be a joy to whip up in this clean, well-appointed space. And, if someone in your group is up for a challenge, head to the aptly named Salmon River and spend a sunny afternoon fishing for salmon and steelhead for dinner.

Right near the dining room is access to the amazing outdoor deck. Take in the mountain landscape from this peaceful oasis. In the yard, an outdoor fire pit is all ready for ambiance or making s'mores after dinner. The deck holds your brand new hot tub where you can relax and listen to the sounds of the might Sandy. Stairs from the deck lead down to the rushing Sandy River (more for memorable photographs than swimming, this part of the river has very fast currents!).

Back inside on the main level, the master bedroom has its own deck access, a queen sized bed, and an eclectic, relaxing design. Since this is the only bedroom on this level, it's peaceful and private. Right through the sliding glass door is a vista of trees, loads of fresh mountain air, and a hammock to lounge away the day in. This room also has an attached bath with a shower.

The remaining three bedrooms are located upstairs. One bedroom has two twin beds, a TV, and deck access for a view down over the hot tub. A nearby kid's game room has a twin-sized pull out sofa, love seat, a TV and a little mini-pool table. Lots of games are also available, so the little ones always have fun activities to keep them occupied.

Another bedroom down the hall features a queen bed and a futon. It's a nice room for older kids to share or a second couple to enjoy. The final bedroom has lovely, framed Oregon travel prints, deck access, a TV, and more eclectic, mountain style. This four-bedroom home will comfortable sleep 10 guests. Additionally, dogs are welcomed here! Bring your four legged friends for a $10 per pet, per day fee ($40 minimum per stay). Other amenities include a stereo with CD player, washer and dryer, and WiFi.

Like all towns near Mt. Hood, Welches offers many cold weather activities as well, be it a sleigh ride around snowy downtown or just enjoying a cup of hot cocoa back at your cabin. Nearby Mt. Hood Ski Bowl is about 15 minutes away and Timberline is only a 25 minute drive east. National Forest lands surround the home, so there are also plenty of opportunities for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.

In summer, Oregon's First Golf Resort is right at the Resort at The Mountain. It's only a mere mile away! The Courses offers challenging golf in lovely environs. In addition there's a spa and a pub. Even those not playing on the green can enjoy a massage, followed by a glass of wine and a Caesar salad. Also nearby, cyclists can choose from over 40 bike routes around town, and there are 30 trails for hiking in the Salmon-Huckleberry Wildnerness Area.

Dining options are plentiful along US Route 26 - everything from fine dining at The Rendezvous to pizza and beer at Mogul Mountain Pizza (they deliver too)! The local Thriftway grocery is just half a mile away, so it's always easy to grab a few last-minute ingredients for dinner. Whether you stay in this wonderful mountain home for golfing, skiing, or if you just end up spending your time on the amazing deck listening to the Sandy River, you'll love this Mt. Hood getaway!

MT. HOOD VACATION

  • 4 of 5
This house was very clean, lots of room and comfortable sofas. The decor was not our taste but that is minor. There are no condiments in the kitchen so be sure to buy everything you need if you plan to cook. The hot tub was wonderful. The front yard is fenced which was great for our dog! A little bit of a drive to Multnomah Falls or the Hood River area). Welches is a very small town but does have a grocery store and National Park office. The town of Sandy is not far away and has more options for food.

BEAUTIFUL RIVER RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
The house, deck, view and location are great. We enjoyed Timberline Lodge, fantastic mountain biking trails, great food at Skyway Bar and Grill, scenery, and the sights and sounds of the Sandy River. Excellent weekend in every way.

GREAT LOCATION AND BEST DOG YARD.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this house with another family. All together we were 9 people and a dog. The yard and deck were excellent and the deck has one of the nicer hot tubs at a house rental that I've experienced. The inside is not modern or very updated but very clean and lots of beds. The main down side to this house that that the water smells like iron and so we drank and cooked with bottled water that we brought. Our dog loved the yard.

BEAUTIFUL AND VERY ACCOMMODATING RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
My significant other and I, along with my three grown kids and their spouses stayed for three nights! The area is beautiful with plenty of things to do around there if you love the snow! We had a great time and will definitely go back.

PERFECT GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
The house is very cozy and spacious for the entire family. The location is perfect for the absolute get-away from city life and noise. The constant babble of the river was very comforting, and the spectacular morning show of the hawks looking for breakfast on the river was better than any television nature show! The house is close enough for shopping, but far enough away to lose yourself in nature.

SANDY RIVER RETREAT - PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
From the minute we picked up the phone to inquire on a short vacation rental, we received superior customer service from Vacasa. In fact, that first phone call was made at nearly 8:00 pm, and we didn't even really think someone would be there to respond, but Kim was there to take the call and make our reservation. Then, the place we originally booked had a small maintenance problem, so an agent called and helped us find an alternative place, which turned out to be the Sandy River Retreat. What a beautiful home! It is large, private, and located right on the Sandy River, yet so close to the grocery store in Welches you could walk there. Mount Hood and Timberline Lodge are a short drive away, with spectacular scenery everywhere you look. The home has a large deck with a hot tub, fire pit, gas bbq, and seating for 4-6 people; really just a wonderful outdoor space nestled in the woods. You can even walk down a private, rustic stairway and get right down to the banks of the Sandy River! Inside, there are 4 bedrooms: 1 master suite, 2 rooms with queen/full size beds, and 1 room with 2 twin beds. The living area is a large and comfy place to hang out. The kitchen has virtually EVERYTHING you could possibly need to cook meals and feed your crew. We loved this place! It made our visit to Oregon feel just perfect, and we hope to plan a return visit some time in the future.
