Have a rustic cabin in the woods experience, but with modern comforts in this dog-friendly, two-bedroom, one-bathroom Welches vacation rental with space for up to four mountain-loving guests and one friendly dog (for a small nightly fee). Secluded among towering cedars and firs, this abode offers great amenities like indoor and outdoor fireplaces and a private hot tub, and it's just minutes to unbridled wilderness along the Salmon River on Mount Hood!
Located just past the Resort at the Mountain's golf course on the south side of Mount Hood, The Cedars is a quiet escape from the bustle of Portland, which is just 46 miles away but a whole world apart. It's also just a few short miles south to the picturesque Salmon River - the entire length of which is given federal protection under its "Wild and Scenic River" designation. Fishing, kayaking, hiking, rock climbing, and many more outdoor activities are within an easy four-mile drive to the trails of the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness.
The home itself is perfect for a relaxing weekend trip with a few friends or a romantic getaway with a loved one. With wood panel walls, a quaint fireplace, and comfy couches and chairs, the living room beckons for you to settle in and make yourself at home. In this room you'll also find a TV with a DVD player, and a CD player and iPod dock for use.
You can enjoy the outdoors, even if there's a chill in the air, thanks to the outdoor fireplace on the porch or soak away your cares in your private hot tub. Back inside, you can also find WiFi, and a collection of games, books, and puzzles for entertainment during a downpour. From late fall to early spring, there's even a creek that runs on the property!
The home's well-stocked kitchen is compact but offers modern appliances and enough cooking space to whip up a great meal. And when the meal is ready, enjoy it at the four-seat wood table adjacent to the kitchen.
When it's time for sleep, retire to either of the home's two bedrooms, which have queen beds that will comfortably accommodate up to four guests. Modestly furnished but comfortable, these rooms are also bright with plenty of natural light streaming in from picture windows.
Only 19 miles to Timberline Lodge and Ski Area and 24 miles to Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort, this home's location is perfect for skiers and snowboarders looking for a peaceful stay that's far enough from any crowds yet close enough to easily get to the slopes.
Tranquil and relaxing, this dog-friendly, two-bedroom Mount Hood vacation rental is a peaceful escape from the city into the beautiful mountain wilderness of Oregon's tallest mountain!

Exactly what we expected
We loved how close, yet away from “town” it is. It was exactly as described and did not disappoint! <br />
We had an issue with the hot tub key pad- but LOM Andrew (and Seaside LOM Leslie) were on top of it as soon as I called! <br />
It was clean and warm when we arrived and THAT was a very pleasant surprise! <br />
We had a VACAWESOME anniversary!
Quiet, charming, shabby chic accommodations. Property needs some TLC and deep cleaning.
Definitely a good destination for some serious R&R. I took my two college-aged kids there for Spring Break. They slept late, read several books (not homework-related), hiked a few trails, watched some movies. They rated their overall Oregon vacation an 8/9 out of 10. But be warned, aside from hiking, we didn’t find much else to do in this area in March. Instead we took a day trip to Cannon Beach and two trips to Portland. About the rental property...it was cozy and warm. But the property needs a lot of TLC. The breaker situation was an issue. As a renter, I don’t feel I should have to deal with this issue. It should be fixed. The kitchen was not well stocked. Only three cereal bowls, really? While I don’t mind hand-washing dishes while on vacation (I actually rather enjoy it), I was totally grossed out by how poorly several of the skillets and dishes had been washed and stored prior to our stay. The beds were acceptable, but the linens were sub-par. Stained, threadbare, old. Yuck. Investing in new bed linens would be a great call. We recommend the coffee and scones at Brewster’s coffee shop and the wraps and fries at Wraptitude.
Great price, cozy place
Good price and cozy
Wonderful cozy cabin in a beautiful setting. Will definitely go back and relax in front of the fire place the first chance I get.
Quiet, clean, private, cozy.
We really enjoyed our time at The Cedars Cabin. It was convenient to our home in Beaverton but close to Timberline Lodge. It was a good value and we liked the amenities.
Very charming cabin, but not the best value
We were so excited to stay in the Cedar Cabin. The covered hot tub, exposed wood finishes, wood stove, and fire place sold us, as did the very convenient and easy to get to location in Welches. We were also very grateful to find a dog-friendly home.<br />
Upon arriving at the cabin, we were surprised at how closely it was located to the surrounding houses. We had imagined it was a more of a secluded home in the woods. When we got inside, however, we were pleased with how cute and cozy everything was and were very glad that the heat had been left on for us.<br />
The covered hot tub was AWESOME. Probably the best thing about the cabin. However, we found ourselves wishing there was some better lighting around it, perhaps some simple string lights. <br />
The back porch was also in need of lighting. And because the handle of the exterior door to the smaller bedroom had fallen off (it is very old hardware that needs to be replaced) we found ourselves fumbling around in the dark to go between the hot tub and the back porch in order to get back inside. <br />
The kitchen was nice and pretty well stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals. However, it filled with smoke when we used the broiler in the oven - sign that it could use a deep cleaning. When we tried to turn on the recirculating hood, we found it was broken. As we looked at it closer to figure out the issue, we saw that the hood was very dirty, with dead insects all over the light bulb. Luckily nothing had fallen on our food!<br />
Overall we had a pretty good experience here, but there is definitely room for improvement. At a little over $300 a night for this place, one would expect more attention to detail.<br />
