Look no further for peace and quiet. This beautiful three bedroom vacation rental cabin sits on a secluded lot over a mile from the highway. And you'll love the amenities! The only sounds you'll hear as you relax in the hot tub on the wraparound deck are the babbling waters of Clear Creek running past, songbirds chirping, and rain dripping from the branches of the lush evergreens surrounding the house. It's very hard to believe that downtown Portland is just an hour away, and the conveniences of ZigZag (a few good restaurants and a full grocery store) can be reached within five minutes.
With plenty of room for up to six guests, this charming vacation rental cabin offers a wonderful combination of rustic lodge decor and modern amenities. Settle in for a long conversation in the upstairs living room, with comfortable leather furnishings arranged before a wood-burning fireplace, or turn on the cable TV with DVD player for a very cozy movie marathon. The bright and cheery kitchen is fully stocked with everything you'll need to prepare hearty breakfasts, and the dishwasher makes clean-up easy.
A downstairs den offers a separate space for guests to gather, complete with a table and chairs for board games, a casual bar, and a CD player. The second floor sunroom may be the best reading nook in the house, no matter what the weather is like outside. With expansive windows overlooking the pine trees, you'll feel as though you are communing with nature even when curled up on the wicker sofa, cupping a mug of hot chocolate and watching the rain fall.
Just off the sunporch, the master bedroom feels like it belongs in Timberline Lodge, with plaid wallpaper, a log-frame queen bed, and more amazing forest views. The second bedroom has a queen-sized four-poster bed, and the last room has two twin-sized bunk beds that sleeps up to four very comfortably. Two full bathrooms each have walk-in showers.
The best spot in this cozy vacation rental cabin, though, isn't actually in the house at all. The deck outside has a private hot tub nestled in a corner, where you can soothe your muscles after a long day of hiking or skiing, and enjoy some truly excellent stargazing. On sunny days, everyone can gather around the grill for a barbecue and dine at the deck's picnic table, even raising the umbrella for a bit of shade. A second wooden deck sits just beside the river, with another picnic table nestled among the trees.
The house is located just over a mile from Highway 26 and the village of ZigZag. All the amenities you could need are within easy reach, yet the house itself feels like a world away from the cares of day-to-day life. If you like a little adventure with your mountain getaway, however, you'll find ski resorts, snowmobiling, hiking trails, fishing holes, and much more within easy reach.
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!
The house was clean and in good shape. I went for peace and quiet, and that's exactly what I found. I would recommend this place for anyone wanting to relax.
We stayed here the final weekend of our week long Oregon road trip. It was a great property to finish out the trip. The house has lots of space and is incredibly well stocked with games, toys and books. As a parent of an 8 year old and a 4 year old, I loved that the creek was easily accessible down a path without being a *too* accessible and a safety risk. The boys loved playing at the creek. Although there is another house on the other side of the creek, the property is so well covered in trees that you have a significant amount of privacy and really don't even notice the other property. Lots of decks and outdoor space. Zig Zag Inn is right across the highway with amazing pizza and Mountain Roasters is just up the highway with great lattes and chocolate chip cookies. Also enjoyed Mt Hood Brewing Company a little further up the road. It would have been nice to have a list of recommended hikes handy at the house, but I used the All Trails app and found a great hike around Trillium Lake. Ranger Station is just across the highway to buy the pass and ask any questions. Once minor glitch was that we couldn't get the interior door to the sunroom to open, but there was so much space in the house, it really wasn't an issue. Overall, a really lovely weekend and I would highly recommend the property.
I'm a big fan of efficiency, and this group has it. The location was simply gorgeous, well cared for, and ready upon arrival. The staff used e-mail as primary dialogue, but numbers were included if you wanted to speak to a live body.
The in/out process was seamless, and I like the idea of using/leaving "staples". For example, there was a bit of coffee leftover from a prior guest. In similar fashion, we left some groceries that we purchased for the next group.
I would highly recommend this team, this location, this property...you will not be disappointed!
Nice stay and close to Ski Bowl. Nice dining close by too.
My 5-year old daughter gave this place 45 stars out of 5 stars because she loved it so much! Perfect secluded house in the middle of so many places to hike/climb/swim/eat/sight-see!
