About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 4

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!

Quaint and Charming

My friends and I had a delightful girls' getaway at this charming cabin. Everything was clean and we were all comfortable. If you are looking for something fancy, keep searching. If you are looking for an affordable and and relaxing place to stay and enjoy nature, you've found it!

Cabin in the woods was in a nice setting

  • 3 of 5

The Cedar cabin was in a nice setting. Neighbors are close but the trees provide a bit of a buffer and gave the property a woodsy feel. The cabin itself is rustic with personality. Our favorite feature was the hot tub and back deck.

WARNING: NOT a riverfront property

  • 3 of 5

This cabin is billed as riverfront and boy, it ain't even close! You can't see the river, you can't even hear the river. It sits among a bunch of other cabins on a lovely lot but yeah, water is NOWHERE nearby, as the description says over and over. A 5-10 minute walk gets you to a strip of private properties along the river. So....unless you enjoy trespassing, you're not gonna get any water play here. And that lovely creek in the photos? It's seasonal. When we showed up, it was a drippy strip of mud. Vacasa reps were kind but unhelpful, suggesting I drive my three kids 20 minutes away to Trillium Lake (an un-swimmable, cold, Mountain Lake mind you) to reconcile the issue. Only after multiple phone calls and me having to 'get mean' did the issue get bumped up to management who did not charge us for the night not used and offered a discount for future booking. Credit to them for their apology and refund but the property is still billed as riverfront in it's main descriptor! So beware and might wanna double check amenities if they're important to you.

Owner's Response: We sincerely apologize for the error regarding the home's location. We have completely updated the listing to remove indications of it being waterfront, and we have noted that the creek is seasonal. We did provide this guest with information regarding water access that was closer than the lake. Again, we apologize for the error and disappointments it caused.

Rustic, Adorable, and Dog Friendly !

  • 5 of 5

I wanted a last minute get away & this was one of the only houses I could find that was dog friendly. I normally would stay at a "fancier" house or hotel but booked it anyhow. We showed up, got inside and were just thrilled to see this cutest little house! Has everything you need to be comfy, plus an amazing antique wood stove on the porch which we used the whole time. The Jacuzzi is impeccably clean (as is the whole house) and just enjoyed the whole ambiance of the cabin. Oh, and two deer came right up by the back porch while we were out there! So fun. The house is right next to other houses, but, doesn't feel that way from inside or on the porch. (I don't like to feel isolated up on the mountain anyway so I liked it) The house is close to stores, an amazing sushi restaurant and just 1/2 hour from Timberline. I will be going there again. FYI the windows do open you just have to have some muscle!!

Secluded older cabin in woods

  • 3 of 5

Tucked away in the forest, this cabin is comfortable & offers family games, DVDs, etc for evening entertainment. The covered hot tub is well kept. The space heaters maybe a bit scary for families with young children. The gas fireplace heats the living room when all doors to other rooms are closed. The kitchen is fully equipped but has no dishwasher. A washer & dryer are an added convenience. The cabin is rustic & has many personal touches.
