About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 10 Sleeps Home Away From The Bustle Of City Life!


Our 4 bedroom, 2 full bath, spacious retreat is situated right on the banks of the Sandy river, with a view that cannot be matched! The major features you can enjoy are:* fantastic views and large deck* gas grill, and river rock wood fireplace* comfortable for large groups* close to ski resorts and outdoor activities

In the summer you can relax on the deck in the warm evenings, lounging in the patio chairs or sitting at the table with friends. There is plenty of room for large groups and lots of seating. The winter time often brings snow, and the river becomes a serene escape from the bustle of the city. Our retreat is located only minutes away from several ski resorts.

The retreat is just steps away from the Sandy River surrounded by beautiful Aspen trees and the large outdoor deck provides great outdoor entertainment for family and friends.

We’ve included everything you need to stay connected to the outside world while you lose yourself in ours! The retreat has WiFi, cable television, and a long distance land line, just in case your cellular service is unreliable. We've also included the ability to stream Netflix, for those of you that prefer no commercials!

Our 4 bedroom, 2 bath home, provides everything you would need to make this your home away from home.

With a gorgeous river rock fireplace and 55 in flat screen television and Blu-ray DVD player, you can lounge on our leather couches and have the best of both worlds. The large picture window provides the perfect view of the forest and river combined!

Upstairs, you will find the master bedroom with pillow top queen mattress, 32 in flat screen, complete with Blu-ray player. Also a shared bathroom with a tiled, double head shower.

The living, dining room, and kitchen provide the open atmosphere while making a meal in our well appointed kitchen, and enjoying your loved ones.

There is a lovely breakfast bar with seating for four, as well as a beautiful dining set to accommodate 6 more.

Downstairs you will be amazed at the space! 3 bedrooms, 2 are host queen beds(1 with a 32' flat screen), the 3rd houses 2 sets of sturdy bunk beds for children, teenagers and adults alike.

Our family area consists of board games, cable television, X-box, and a gaming table. Even a sofa if you’d prefer to snuggle up with one of our books!

Our quaint neighborhood is just 20 minutes to Ski Bowl, Timberline and Mt. Hood Meadows for excellent skiing and snowboarding. Hiking and biking trails are numerous and a host of restaurants and little shops line Highway 26 just 5-10 minutes away as well.

There is a full grocery store, gas station and several shops just a few short miles away. The local tavern, Brightwood Inn, serves decent food and drinks at very reasonable prices, and there is a quick market about a mile away. There is simply too many activities to list and we're a short trip to everything the Mt. Hood area has to offer. See the map and our guest book for numerous more details.

About Stacy & Craig

We've been blessed with 4 wonderful children who happen to love the mountain and wilderness just as much as we do! We've spent years coming up to the mountain, and finally decided it was time we have a little place to call our own family retreat. We want to share our joy of the mountain with you and yours a well!

Stacy & Craig purchased this house in 2012

Why Stacy & Craig chose Mount Hood

We were so fortunate to find this property like we did. We wanted to have enough space where our kiddos could enjoy themselves, but, also have enough room to separate ourselves as well!!! HAHA! The location and view were really the deal sealers for us...see for yourself and you'll know why!

What makes this house unique

With the Sandy River view, how could you not fall in love at first sight?!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stacy, thank you! That was so thoughtful, and such a nice gesture. We are comfortable already. You are good at what you do. The house is super clean, and the decor is sharp.

The river is gorgeous. The kids are so impressed.

I like to be pleased, and you have done that. Great customer service!

Lovely family lodge located in an idyllic alpine setting

  • 5 of 5

A very well equipped lodge with loads of space for large families. Open plan kitchen diner and living room lends itself to family living of all ages. The house was decorated for Xmas making our stay extra special. We enjoyed a roast turkey dinner in front of a roaring open fire. The lodge is situated in a private residential area with a river flowing at the end of the garden providing some picturesque walking. A well stocked supermarket is just 5 minutes away by car.

Highly recommended for all holiday makers.

Place is amazing! Great views off the back deck and a soothing rhythm of running water for the nearby Sandy River. Lush green landscapes create a feeling of privacy in the back yard and the location itself is very remotely located, great for that "Getting Away" feeling. Stacy is a great host and definitely knows how to accommodate a party. Every need and question was attended to promptly and appropriately; never did we feel as if we were bothering at all. No expense was spared in making us feel welcomed. If able to, I would definitely stay here in the future.

Thanks again!

Good place to stay on Mt Hood

  • 4 of 5

2 families shared the home for a few days during spring break. Ample sleeping for 10. The home looked newer in the pictures but was well kept and clean. Nice to have TVs and DVD players for rest time after a snow filled day. Kitchen was well stocked with items needed to prepare meals. Overall a nice place to stay.

Nice Home, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Nice for the seven of us including four adults, two teenagers and one almost (and the dog). We especially enjoyed the river and a trip to zig zag falls. So much to do we could have stayed longer. The home is comfortable and gave us plenty of room. One more garbage can should be added as when we took out the garbage to place on Tuesday evening, they were both full. Not a big deal as the weather was dry but I could see how it could be in inclement weather.
