Located just outside Zigzag on 24 acres of private, protected wilderness, this charming cabin in the woods offers guests a true escape from it all, with a magical feel everywhere you turn. As soon as you park your car and proceed across the custom, steel bridge, you'll feel the quiet settle in. A short trail takes you past a whimsical swing set and to the front door of this beautiful home. If you glance to your left, you may notice a beautiful chandelier hanging from old growth trees.
After crossing the river rock patio, you enter into the great room - a room of simple, yet vibrant decor and enormous space from the cathedral-style ceilings and sustainably-harvested wood floors. Warm up by the fireplace and enjoy views of the forest and a good book. This home is a great place to unplug, with limited WiFi access and no cell service.
For the chefs among you, gourmet meals are an every night possibility with the expansive kitchen stocked full of updated appliances and fun gadgets. Dine outside or in - no matter where you eat, you'll have amazing views.
This is a two-bedroom, one-bathroom home, comfortable for four people to share. The bathroom features a walk-in shower with French doors and a river rock floor, adding a sense of luxury to daily task. The downstairs bedroom has a comfortable queen sleigh bed.
The entire upstairs is the master bedroom. Ample natural light and more astounding views make the guests of this room feel like royalty. Snuggle into a Gustavian-style queen bed, with an additional twin day bed for an additional guest. Draw a bath in the antique claw tooth bathtub and feel yourself relax deeply.
Whether you head out with a basket to collect huckleberries and chantrelle mushrooms, hit the slopes at Timberline 22 miles away, or hike around the Government Camp area, this stunning, peaceful Mt. Hood getaway will welcome you back with warmth and wonder.
**Important Information: Those with limited mobility, take heart: the trail from the parking area to the home is roughly 150 feet in length and crosses a grated steel pedestrian bridge. Appropriate footwear is required, especially in winter, as this trail is not shoveled. The driveway is plowed only when the snow depth exceeds 8 inches, and a vehicle with AWD, chains, and appropriate ground clearance may be required. Bring your OWN flashlight to get in after dark. It is a dirt trail to the Rock Stairs.

Vacasa - Vacation Rentals Made Easy:
Professionally managed and cleaned homes
Local assistance 24/7 for emergencies
Secure INSTANT booking
Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.
Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.
Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!
This is such an incredible property!!! Not even sure where to start...My boyfriend and I stayed here for two days recently and just loved it. The grounds are beautiful around the house. There are hiking trails around the house and a few "surprises" in the woods :) The river in front of the house makes this setting so picturesque too. As soon as I opened the car door I could hear the gushing of the river below. We could hear it at night too and thought it was so relaxing and soothing. The stone steps and patio in front of the house are beautiful and make this cottage look so enchanting and quaint. And the inside of the house is equally lovely and charming. We loved the woods floors and all the furnishings. The king-sized bed upstairs was luxurious and comfortable. I think we could have stayed in bed and rested all day both days! There was no tv in the house and we stayed off our wifi most of the time; it allowed us to pay attention to our surroundings and enjoy them. The whole house was beautiful and so charming with a Scandinavian touch everywhere. I think we could just have spent a week doing nothing but enjoying the house and grounds!!! I would highly recommend this incredible and unique property to anyone interested. We would stay here again in a heartbeat if we returned to the area. Thanks Vacasa for a wonderful part of our vacation!!!
Our nephew came in to town and we had never rented a private property before. He suggested we look for one and we found the Stuga cabin. It was a wonderful choice. The location was secluded and quiet. Many have commented on the lack of wi-fi or TV. If your desire was a "connected" world stay in the city, this place isn't for you. There is wi-fi but it's not what a place like this is about. This is about peace, nature and quiet. Don't rely on the negative reviews focusing on steps in the woods, slow wi-fi, no TV, creaky doors or cabinets. Those people really should just stay in the city and never leave, I'm sure there's a Starbucks for them in Seattle or Portland. This is a place you make your own coffee, take a walk, connect with friends and family. It's a very enjoyable place, we loved it.
Location was amazing and the property was beyond beautiful! To get to the house you cross a bridge to get to the house which is up a stone stair case. There are board games and lots of books and also quite a few private trails on the property. Everything about this place was beautiful, fun and relaxing
This house was the perfect getaway we needed! There were private trails on the property and an old scoop bath tub in the bedroom what more could you ask for?! There is wifi but it didn't work when we stayed there, called the number but didn't hear back from property mangers, but it ended up giving us a great opportunity to disconnect and really be present. The house was close to lots of other beautiful trails like Ramona Falls! A definite must if you are planning on hiking. This was one of the first times the actual house and surrounding property was better than the pictures. We were not disappointed one bit by our stay here and we'll definitely be back!
We rented the stuga months ago as a getaway. We were drawn to this rental due to the amenities such as the soaking pool, swing, Viking stove, and outdoor grill. When we arrived and started checking the place out, I was extremely disappointed, to the point that we left a day early. Where do I begin? Lots of broken drawers and random junk scattered throughout the house in drawers and cabinets. It didn't have that clean organized rental feeling. we were looking for matches to start a fire. No matches or lighters anywhere even though there was a fireplace and candles. Sink isn't caulked so it was leaky whenever you used it. Went to use the grill and it didn't work. Ignite button was missing and was also filthy underneath where the (empty) propane tank was. Had lots of old greasy tools and a moldy pan of grease, however the stove and oven worked well. Bathroom window had no lock and could be lifted open easily. Really disappointed in the fact that a lot of the selling points of the property were not up to par. The "soaking pool" wasn't functioning and was filthy stagnant water, but there was no indication that the soaking pool would not be functional during our stay. If there had been some sort of documentation stating the soaking pool was only available certain months, I would've understood, however the weather was 80 degrees when we were there so we assumed we would have use of it. The swing was non-existant. We were looking forward to taking photos with our daughter on the swing. The overall safety of the house is sub-par. The front doors only shut if you lock them and they were very loose and not secure, to the where they could be pushed open. There is no lock on the gate either, which left us feeling not so safe.
House was clean but cleaning supplies were left out when we arrived. The grill was very dirty and had moldy grease pan underneath. There were also lots of unfinished projects throughout the property, large holes dug all over the place, a big hole in the concrete with loose pieces of concrete in the entry way patio which was very easy to trip on. Overall, I feel like this place needs a serious cleaning and to be organized, and the listing needs to be updated while there are existing projects going on throughout the property, or if certain amenities will not be available. We ended up leaving a day early because we were so disappointed and were forced to leave food in the refrigerator, which was also money wasted. Really bummed.
We rented this for our honeymoon and the place/location itself was amazing. It was a magical little hideaway and you'd half expect little fairys to be flying around. The one thing we noticed though is that everything is perfect...in theory.
--The clawfoot tub in the bedroom is so cute and romantic, but you have to fill it over three different sittings because there isn't enough hot water.
--The fireplace and fire pit are incredible, but there are no matches or lighters to get them started. Not a huge deal, but it would be a nice touch to provide something to light them, rather than having to find out the hard way and head into town to buy matches.
--The manmade "hot spring" is incredibleeeeee, but we couldn't use it because there was no way to heat it and after 5 attempts (phone and email) to communicate with the owners and Vacasa, no one got back to us.
--The wifi is almost non-existent. This is fine for an off-the-grid vacay, but we were in the process of buying a house and need to be reachable here and there. The ad says "limited', which would have been all we needed. But, "limited' isn't the right word. It shuts off and reboots over and over. We had to drive into town multiple times to receive and reply to important emails.
--The speakers in the woods were such a nice touch, but there are no directions on how to turn them on, and nobody would return our calls.
So, like I said, all amazing in theory, not in practice. My goal in writing this is to set expectations for future renters. Had we known all of this in advance, we would have been better prepared and had better expectations.
All that said, we did really enjoy ourselves and it was an amazing experience overall, we just wish we could have had some human contact and some additional directions provided to us.
