Perfect for a rustic vacation away from the stress of daily life, this Rhododendron riverfront cottage on the Sandy River is an amazing place to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.
Small and quiet Rhododendron, Oregon, is located between Sandy and Mt. Hood (about 20 minutes from each), so between the river, the forests, and the mountain, you will have no shortage of wilderness to appreciate! This particular home is located at the end of the street in a very quiet, family neighborhood, and a short path in the backyard leads directly to the beautiful Sandy River.
The house itself was recently remodeled and has a comfortable, cabin-theme decor with an efficient floor plan and minimal electronic distractions. The living room has plenty of seating for a small family to sit around the gas fireplace and play one of the board games provided. WiFi and a selection of books are also available, so you won't even notice the lack of a TV! In the full kitchen you will find gorgeous tile countertops and all the major appliances and everything you will need to cook a meal for yourself and your guests.
Downstairs also has a full bathroom, washer and dryer, and a sofa in the living room that can fold out to a bed at night. Upstairs there is a loft area and a daybed with a trundle bed, plus the master bedroom which features a half-bathroom and a king-size bed. With all the sleeping spaces packed into this home, up to six people (plus two 20-pound or less dogs, though a nightly fee per dog and minimum fee per stay will apply) can sleep comfortably! And right out the back door is a nice deck and a fire pit, plus the path that will lead you a short way to the river.
This home has easy access to many outdoor activities: wading, exploring, or fishing in the river is just steps away, hiking and biking trails in the forest are 3 miles down the road, golfing and restaurants in Welches are 2 miles away, and Mt. Hood's Timberline Lodge is just 20 miles east. The rustic cottage would be a perfect place to spend a few days enjoying the sights and sounds of nature, whether you venture to the mountain or stay in the comfort of your vacation home.
If a nature-filled retreat close to all sorts of outdoor activities sounds like your idea of a good time, this rental property is waiting for you!

Vacasa - Vacation Rentals Made Easy:
Professionally managed and cleaned homes
Local assistance 24/7 for emergencies
Secure INSTANT booking
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 roaring river retreat was wonderful. Very clean and very well stocked to bring the comforts of home. Then kitchen had all the pots pans and dishes we needed to make meals and the openness of the house really made it the perfect getaway. The only TV options were kids movies, but who needs that in a lovely house like this one. (although, there is WIFI so you could stream netflix/hulu on a laptop if you want)
WE LOVED our stay and plan to come back again!
While staying on Mt. Hood we hiked the old salmon river trail, the zig zag falls trail, and the trillium loop trail. All very beautiful and refreshing short hikes in the area. We were very pleased with our stay at your lovely cabin. We will most likely rent it again.
Excellent place. Very clean and just steps away from the river. Would go there again for sure.
A wonderful, well made cabin with beautiful furnishings with everything you need!
Very peaceful and quiet with the nice sound of the Sandy River!
We would stay again at this great cabin by the Sandy River
We spent 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the time. We were very comfortable here, whether reading, cooking, or enjoying the forest. We recommend walking in Barlow Wayside a few miles west on Barlow Trail-- not a long hike but a beautiful walk in the woods. The one caution--be careful if arriving after dark as the gravel road has areas that could use repairing.
