About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Nestled in the Cedar Trees, The Cedar Chalet is a beautifully crafted chalet. Full of windows and skylights, you feel as though you are living in a tree house.

Situated on a private acre of woods, The Cedar Chalet feels as though it is on its own private mountain, when it is actually only minutes to great trails, biking, rivers and skiing.

This three bedroom, two bathroom home is DOG FRIENDLY! Perfect for your family or 2 families, the first floor is a very large open space, allowing for everyone to be doing their own thing while still being together.

A wood stove adds warmth and comfort for those winter days while you prepare your meals in the fully equipped kitchen. Off to the side is the dining area, surrounded by windows and views of the Cedar Trees.

One Queen Bedroom, full bathroom and laundry room, with a top-of-the-line washer and dryer complete the first floor.

Upstairs is the kids room, with three twin beds and the Master bedroom, with a Queen bed, a day bed and a loft area if needed (mattress provided but bring your own sleeping bags). You will sleep deeply and peacefully on our new top-of-the-line pillow top mattresses. There is another full bathroom on the second floor.

There is a separate game house, with foosball, game table and an air hockey table, guaranteed to keep the kids occupied and happy.

Privately situated in the back of the house is a screened in Hot Tub Room and Summer Dining Area.

Your Dog is welcome here, at our Cedar Chalet. Come home to your Mt Hood home away from home. You will be amazed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us! The quiet and peacefulness is something we seek and we found it here! Everything was perfect! The views were a pleasant reminder of the forest. We hope to be back soon as I am sure the chalet in the snow is overwhelming.

Little piece of heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to escape the hustle and bustle of the real world, and find some peace and quiet, and blissful relaxation. We were not disappointed!!! From the minute we opened the door to a nice warm cabin, with very relaxing music playing, seeing the "thank you" note and goodies from our host, (including dog treats!) and then exploring the very tasteful cabin and it's amenities that ALL met our expectations and then some! Whether you plan to go out and sight see the gorgeous surroundings or just stay put inside and enjoy the serenity of the cabin, you won't be disappointed! Thanks Becca and Richard, we will be back again for sure!!!!

The Girls' Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place to celebrate my sister's 60th birthday when I saw this listing which would accommodate the four sisters and our 5 daughters. Not only was this a surprise party for my sister (and she was surprised as we had not all been together for 18 years), but we were all surprised and elated with the accommodations. Loved the open floor plan, the hot tub in the screened in room and the back deck. We spent five nights. We had ample towels and bedding. The home is close to Timberline and Skibowl which we visited - Also enjoyed Mt. Hood Coffee Roasters (less than 10 minutes away) and their tour. We ranged in ages from 24 to 66. Thank you Becca for such a beautiful retreat which truly felt like home!

Owner's Response: Kathleen - it was wonderful to have all you Ladies in Cedar Chalet and I am so glad you enjoyed the home and surroundings. I especially loved the comments you and your sister left in our Guest book and I encourage our future Guests to look for them. It will bring a tear to your eye as it did ours. Thank you so much for 'finding us' and for sharing your experience here. We look forward to the next 60th celebration!

Great Long weekend in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to get away from the noise and hustle and bustle of town. We needed a home with a downstairs bed and bath (for a handicapped relative) and that would let our two dogs stay. This home fit the bill. We never felt crowded, plenty of room to walk the dogs and the home was easy to keep neat and clean- truly a home away from home! We hope to come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Claudia! We agree with you - it is a great area for dogs to enjoy their time away just as much as you do. It will be a pleasure to have you back. Richard and Becca

Amazing and lovely home - didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked through the front door of this lovely home - warm and cheerily lit with welcoming music and homemade treats - we knew this was going to be an amazing weekend. The owners' welcome alone was just phenomenal; but the house itself, bright and airy, lovely vintage quilts on comfy beds, great layout for kids and friends, perfect kitchen for socializing, cozy TV area, and a killer screened porch with hot tub ... PERFECT. We stayed tucked in, took quiet walks and hikes, and played a little on the structure with the kids; hard to leave. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful and special home with us.
