Enjoy a five-star luxury stay in a house without any neighbors in this secluded Mt. Hood vacation rental.
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.
Please Note: This home has limited the total WiFi bandwidth to 1GB; it moves slowly, so please be patient. Please do not use any audio or video streaming services. We encourage you to turn the WiFi off when it isn't in use. Thank you!**

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!
My husband and I spent three wonderful nights at the Stuga for our one year anniversary. It was so charming as you walked across the bridge and see the beautiful trees and house waiting for you. Everything from furnishings, the claw foot tub, the hidden magical forest, the claw foot tub and the opportunity to get away from everything to enjoy nature and your loved one. And did I mention the tub? We had such an amazing time. The only things that kept my review from being all 5 stars was the fact that the windows and doors did not seem to feel as secure as I would have liked and the fact that a large number of windows down stairs and a few upstairs had no window covering at all including the downstairs bedroom windows, the bathroom window and the full glass french doors or the side door downstairs. But over all it was very magical. And if they ever wanted to get the hot tub over looking the stream back up and running that would be absolutely amazing! I also could not get over the beautiful setup in the woods. I spent a lot of time out there admiring the magical lighting with my husband. The Stuga is definitely a real life fairy tale setting!
Very charming and unique house and property. Fairy garden is awesome. Great stay! Will stay again.
A gorgeous spot with whimsical details to delight the imaginative vacationer. Wonderful use of surroundings. A true gem. My guess is that manager/owner has been on vacation her/himself of late, because a few things were not working, like lights. Otherwise, though, an amazing place to enjoy a cozy weekend.
This cottage is located down a dead end and then about a bit farther on a private drive. For those looking to get away from the city like us it was pure heaven. The incredible details of the property brought such joy to my family we felt like we were constantly on a treasure hunt. There is ample wood to have fires both inside or outside near the river. The river and trails let us explore whenever we wished. Some cleaning would do it a bit of good but the outside areas outweighed any such issues.
This is a beautiful property full of fun surprises. We would love to go back!
My wife and I spent two nights celebrating our wedding anniversary and we both loved the experience. Being only about an hour from home but feeling like we must have been transported to a far off mountain hideaway in a peaceful forested world all its own. Once you arrive just cross the walking bridge and leave your worries behind!
Everything was clean and convenient, thank you Vacasa!
