Spacious and luxurious, this five-bedroom gem with room for 15 in colorful Welches has a classic lodge look and the feel and character of its mountain surroundings. Many of its wooden elements, in fact, come from the indigenous pines that once stood on the site. Its exquisite design combines elegance with amenities like a seven-person hot tub, outdoor patio with fire pit, three elegant bathrooms, and plenty of places (public and private) to get together and chat, or escape with a book.
A big group needs big digs, and this amazing home sacrifices nothing in warmth and character by virtue of its size. Tall ceilings create a space that's comfortable, but not cavernous. Its atmosphere is softened with homespun touches like snowshoe lamps, rustic furniture, and a gas fireplace. Brightly lit from sunlight through multiple windows and recessed lighting, you'll relax in an atmosphere filled with plenty of comfortable furniture. Kick back on the big sectional sofa and enjoy a movie on the DVD or Blu-ray player. (There's free WiFi and cable TV too!) At mealtime, turn your cook(s) loose in the big, fully equipped kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances like a double refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher.
The same attention to luxury and detail extends to each of the five bedrooms as well. The master has a king bed with a charming, rough-hewn wood frame, its own fireplace, and private access to the backyard with its deck, hot tub, and patio furniture - perfect for morning coffee! Attached to the master is a beautifully tiled bath with double sinks, a large vanity, separate shower, and a jetted soaking tub. Two more bedrooms have queen beds, one with a VCR and library for that late night movie. Put the kids in the other two bedrooms, where you'll find two twin-over-twin bunk beds and one full-over-full bunk bed. And that's not all! Two futons - one in the master, another in the living room - make for extra room. Three beautifully appointed bathrooms give everybody in your group a chance to get ready easily and in good time.
Kids can get a head start on fun with the collection of children's bikes in the garage. Adults can make the three-minute drive up the road to Wildwood Recreation Area, a beautiful 550 acre park nestled against the Salmon River where you can explore the interpretive trails among the old-growth forest. Hikers can trek on 31 trails in the Welches area. The nearby Sandy River is a great place to paddle the kayak or fish. There's golfing at nearby Resort at the Mountain (about two minutes away). And, of course, in winter skiers and boarders can hit the slopes at Skibowl, about 15 minutes away, or historic Timberline (about a half-hour) where you can also visit the iconic, Depression-Era lodge.

Great place for both the adults and kids. Beautiful and spacious with plenty of room for everyone. We had a wonderful time with our kids and grandkids.!
We had all our kids and grandkids and the home is beautiful and highly conducive to family times together - - shared meals, games, outdooor activities, hot tubbing, etc. Well maintained and clean home. Wonderful getaway spot. Hiking at nearby Wildwood Recreation area is outstanding.
The Welches property was perfect for a large group and a full Thanksgiving dinner. We had 8 adults and 4 kids so it was a full house. The kitchen was well equipped to put on a full Thanksgiving dinner which we thoroughly enjoyed. The hot tub was perfect on a snowy evening and morning. Overall, an excellent stay in an excellent and beautiful home. We hope to come back next year.
Great house with a large, open kitchen/dining room/living room area where we could all be together. And the master bathroom is amazing!
We booked this home for 18 people (8 adults and 10 kids) and there was plenty of space for all of us, although one of the adult couples had to occupy a futon in the loft area. Aside from that, the kitchen and eating areas are easily large enough to accommodate this number of people. We were very impressed with the look and feel of the home. It has obviously been recently remodeled and it shows. The only wrinkle we had was with the entertainment system. It is a complicated system and a call to Vacasa didn't go much farther than, "Make sure it's plugged in." Fortunately, we found the business card of the guy who installed the system and a call to him got us up and running in a few minutes. Incidentally, the installer mentioned that the system is probably too complicated to be in a rental home... Aside from that, we have no complaints.
