Overview

Rhododendron Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

A wonderful rustic, yet spacious cabin in the shadow of Mount Hood, Oregon. Whiskey Creek Cabin provides ready access to many great places around Mount Hood.

The cabin was built in 1930 by the legendary Mount Hood wood craftsman and renowned cabin builder Henry Steiner. He and his son's built many of the cabins in the local area during the first half of the twentieth century. Henry's personal touches are everywhere that you look. Originally located at Whiskey Creek, along the Barlow Road, it was moved to it's present location near Brightwood, next to Hackett Creek, in the 1960's when the highway was widened. Whiskey Creek Cabin is also listed in the Oregon Historical Society. The cabin was renovated during 2007 and then we made it into a vacation rental early in 2008.

Whiskey Creek Cabin has been thoughtfully furnished and decorated for your comfort and relaxation. The kitchen is well stocked and there are plenty of extra linens, pillows and towels. That is just the beginning of the many small details that will make this your favorite retreat on the mountain. We did our best to add all the comforts of home and then some for both you and your canine friends.

This quant log cabin is located in a small neighborhood.

About Kory Reese

Thanks for visiting my VRBO site, I'm Kory and I live and play in the Mt Hood area. Whiskey Creek Cabin has been a lot of fun!. It's so great to see the same people are coming back! We have a small farm in the Welches area that I share with my husband, our 14 year old son, 3 horses, 2 Golden Retrievers, 1 Red Bone Coon Hound, 3 cats and most recently chickens. We enjoy riding our snowmobiles in the winter, our dirt bikes in the summer. My husband Gary likes to enjoy a round of golf while I hit the trail on my horse. Life is good when you get to live and play on Mt Hood!

Kory Reese purchased this cabin in 2007

It was just what we hoped it would be

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is woodsy, comfortable, clean, and friendly-feeling. You have to pay attention when you're on the stairs leading up to the second floor because they are narrow and a little uneven, but visually they are great. The business side of the rental transaction was smooth; no issues at all. We will definitely be back.

Return visit just as great!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Whiskey Creek before (see review below) and came back for another lovely visit. Kory is a wonderful and accommodating host, making sure that we had plenty of firewood and even allowing for a late checkout when asked. This cabin is just as darling, cozy and and charming as we remember, with an amazing selection of VHSs (80s and 90s kids, rejoice!) We especially adore the giant poufs that are upstairs. Imagine two big round pillows the size of a VW bug, and you get the idea.

The one note I have, and it's not a bad one, is that the wifi is sometimes stronger and sometimes weaker. So if you are in the middle of a Major Business Deal that requires round-the-clock broadband, perhaps this is not the spot for you. Then again, why would you come to the gorgeous Mt. Hood wilderness and do anything but relax and enjoy yourself?

Cozy and Clean

  • 4 of 5

Since this is a pet friendly cabin I was prepared for dirty carpets and a pet smell. I was so surprised to find the opposite! This rental is obviously loved and well kept. The owners have thought through the comforts their guests may need. Including the ok to use candles to further enhance the cozy atmosphere! I loved the vintage kitchen. Although vintage means no dishwasher. So if you are the main washer of dishes...bring some paper plates along, you are on vacation. One of the reviews mentioned it was dark and hard to read downstairs. I agree and we just gently removed the dark lampshades while we needed extra light. My 3 and 5 year old loved the bunk beds upstairs we hung a strand of twinkle lights as a nightlight :) If you have toddlers both the front and back porch would be perfect for a little bike. We enjoyed Trillium Lake for sledding.

Early Christmas Visit

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Whiskey Creek Cabin for an early Christmas celebration with our adult daughters living in Oregon. We are from Ohio and appreciated staying in this gem of a cabin. The historic, rustic workmanship made this a cozy retreat in the forest. The location was easy access up to Mt. Hood for snow shoeing as well.

This was a great time at the cabin with my family!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was just as it was indicated in the VRBO site. I have younger kids that i wanted to have them experience the outdoors without sleeping in a tent (YET) and there was a lot of things to do around this cabin. My 5 year and 2 year old say almost everyday... "Dad when can we go back to the log cabin" a lot of joy to hear that. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us!
