Overview

Welches Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeper sofa, sleeps 6

Located on the historic Barlow Trail and just minutes away from great hiking, biking, skiing, and golfing on beautiful Mt. Hood, this spacious and cozy custom built home sits on 2.5 private acres that make for a perfect mountain getaway. Facing south on a hilltop, the house gets a lot of light yet it is surrounded by a thick cedar and fir forest. The partially covered 500 square foot wraparound deck and huge picture window in the living room offer an amazing view of Hunchback Mountain. On clear evenings you will enjoy gazing at the star-filled sky from our new Tiger River Sumatran hot tub. The hot tub is conveniently located just steps away from the master bedroom but is also easily accessible from the wraparound deck. Both bedrooms have been outfitted with your comfort in mind and the kitchen is fully equipped for gourmet meals. Built with love and with trees milled from the property, this modern home contains so much mountain charm.

We have outfitted the house with your relaxation and comfort in mind. Each bedroom has luxurious linens and is adjacent to its own full bath. The master bedroom has a Sealy Serta king size bed and is just steps away from the hot tub. The living room couch pulls out into a very comfortable sofa bed. The kitchen is fully stocked for all your gourmet cooking needs. We love to cook ourselves, so we promise to always keep the knives sharpened! There is also a charcoal grill for cooking on the deck or for the more adventurous, the firepit on the west side of the property. The house is heated with a wonderfully efficient wood stove that adds so much to the coziness of the place. We provide a free wireless Internet connection, a landline phone, and an iPod player. We will also provide you with a list of our favorite restaurants in the area as well as suggestions for hiking, biking, and skiing.

Built with love and with trees milled from the property, this modern home contains so much mountain charm. When you are not out playing on the mountain, we hope you will enjoy walking around the property and checking out the natural wonders and the pieces of sculpture that are nestled amongst the ferns and the cedars. We hope you experience all the pleasures of the 'Hilltop Hideaway!'

About Anne LaVallee

We are a creative couple, inspired by natural beauty. We live in Portland but spend as much time on the mountain as we can. We love to hike, bike, kayak, ski, cook, and entertain friends and family. We love our Hilltop Hideaway for doing all these activities and more!

Anne LaVallee purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Anne LaVallee chose Mount Hood

We have been renting a cabin on Mt. Hood in the winter for cross country skiing for fifteen years. Then, in 2008, we rented a place in the summer and we were hooked. We fully understood how magical Mt. Hood is and how much it has to offer(skiing, hiking, swimming, kayaking, fishing, golfing, biking) in every season. We started looking for a place in 2009 and quickly found the Hilltop Hideaway. We knew almost immediately that it was the place for us. It is secluded and private but close to good restaurants and stores. It has a fantastic view of Hunchback Mountain. The house was lovingly built by the former owners with wood milled from the property. It is well designed and just feels good. We are instantly relaxed the minute we arrive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The trails, the cabin and (of course) the hot tub were all perfect for our post 30 year old reunion. We will now venture to the city fully satisfied and complete with many a new memory...

Comfortable and Private

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Hilltop Hideaway! It was very relaxing and peaceful. The cottage is close enough to convenience but very secluded and private. Exactly what we needed!

The cottage has very comfortable beds and that is a HUGE bonus too! We have stayed in numerous cabins in the Welches area and by far this was the most comfortable.

We will be back!

Hilltop Hideaway Is the Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Hilltop Hideaway was the perfect escape from busy Seattle for a few peaceful days. The cabin is super comfortable and spacious, clean, thoughtfully equipped with just about everything you need for a home-away-from-home vacation, and the perfect jump off point for mountain adventures. We loved playing ping pong next to the green hillside and bright sunflower garden. Saw plenty of critters (the good kind) -- garter snakes, chipmunks, grazing deer, evening bats and morning birds of all kinds -- and loved the stillness at night. Our hosts have equipped the house with so many extras: lots of games and puzzles (many games of Yahtzee were played), well-stocked kitchen, all the wood stove and BBQ starting equipment you'd ever need, ice packs in the freezer to keep food cold for picnicking, luggage racks in both bedrooms. Anne was responsive and a delight to communicate with. Instructions for arrival, operating wood stove and hot tub were clear and very easy to follow. The only thing I found missing was a guide to where the property boundaries are and where the trails go that take off from the cabin. We didn't explore much on the property but it would have been nice to have a little map included in the guest book. We'll definitely be back and share this one with friends and family.

Another awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at this cabin and it was another great trip. Can't beat the property - forested trails, outdoor stage, 2 big BR and baths, lovely kitchen, deck and hot tub. Buzzed up to Teacup for some spring XC - weather was perfect - we were able to strip down to t-shirts. Looking forward to our next stay!

Wonderfully equipped private cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is truly lovely and private! Each bedroom has it's own charming bath. Lots of sweet details around the house give it a charming and rustic feel. We loved the private hot tub. One of the most spectacular hikes in Oregon is just a 5 minute drive away along the Salmon River. Everything was clean and welcoming. The host was truly gracious as well. We wanted for nothing during our stay and will definitely try to stay again!
