House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

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.

About Vacasa, OR - Mt Hood / Hood River Office

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. <br> <br> 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. <br> <br> 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!

                                      Beautiful, cozy, and perfect for what we wanted!

                                      Deanna C.

                                      Loved this home! We’ve stayed in a few places in the area and this is one we’ll definitely come back to. Plenty of room for our two families and kids, plenty of entertainment for adults and kids (board games, puzzles, books). The sound of the river was awesome and being able to take the young kids just out the back door to the deck to play in the snow was a huge plus! Only negative we found was the WiFi was very spotty if more than one device used it at a time ... which made things frustrating and trying to check work emails difficult (which then took longer than planned and took away from our relaxation time). Overall....loved it!

                                      Very relaxing and well outfitted!

                                      Nicole B.

                                      Great house, beautiful river, lovely hot tub, big enough for 2 or 3 families, kitchen is really well stocked, house is warm and cozy, beds comfortable, games, books, toys, tv's. Easy place to just be.

                                      Great place to stay

                                      Chris S.

                                      Great accommodations for traveling with family friends with Kids. The down stairs area has 4 bunk beds and a game room the kids loved and the adults sleep up stairs in a master bedroom with a king size bed (very comfortable) and another bed with a queen. The hot tub is small but still enjoyable. For some reason the power turned off on hot tub our last night and would not turn back on :(. The drive way is less then desirable when backing out into the road with a corner that is challenging to see oncoming vehicles. Overall stay was awesome!

                                      Beautiful house !

                                      It was wonderful for adults as we as kids

                                      Loved it!

                                      Janet B.

                                      Had a great stay, everything was very comfortable, clean and spacious. My only complaint would be the front steps which are treacherous with frost, especially when loading or unloading cars. Will return, definitely!

                                      The place was cozy and comfortable with a very well appointed kitchen.

                                      The problem started when we were unable to use the hot tub until 10 p.m. the second night because it was cold. We followed a path to what we thought would be the fire pit to enjoy a warm fire by the creek...there wasn't one. This morning the electricity went out as did the water. No showers, unable to run dishwasher or start the laundry, no wifi. Packed up by flashlight (downstairs) and left. Unable to enjoy late checkout. The place really is comfortable with nearly any amenities one might need as far as cooking, blankets, games, etc., it was just disappointing that the things we were looking forward to as highlights were unavailable. Thank you for your timely responses during our stay.

                                      Owner's Response:

                                      We are sorry to see there were some disappointments and will get these taken care of as quickly as possible.
