About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 15

Spacious and luxurious, this five-bedroom gem with room for 15 in colorful Welches has a classic lodge look and the feel and character of its mountain surroundings. Many of its wooden elements, in fact, come from the indigenous pines that once stood on the site. Its exquisite design combines elegance with amenities like a seven-person hot tub, outdoor patio with fire pit, three elegant bathrooms, and plenty of places (public and private) to get together and chat, or escape with a book.

A big group needs big digs, and this amazing home sacrifices nothing in warmth and character by virtue of its size. Tall ceilings create a space that's comfortable, but not cavernous. Its atmosphere is softened with homespun touches like snowshoe lamps, rustic furniture, and a gas fireplace. Brightly lit from sunlight through multiple windows and recessed lighting, you'll relax in an atmosphere filled with plenty of comfortable furniture. Kick back on the big sectional sofa and enjoy a movie on the DVD or Blu-ray player. (There's free WiFi and cable TV too!) At mealtime, turn your cook(s) loose in the big, fully equipped kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances like a double refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher.

The same attention to luxury and detail extends to each of the five bedrooms as well. The master has a king bed with a charming, rough-hewn wood frame, its own fireplace, and private access to the backyard with its deck, hot tub, and patio furniture - perfect for morning coffee! Attached to the master is a beautifully tiled bath with double sinks, a large vanity, separate shower, and a jetted soaking tub. Two more bedrooms have queen beds, one with a VCR and library for that late night movie. Put the kids in the other two bedrooms, where you'll find two twin-over-twin bunk beds and one full-over-full bunk bed. And that's not all! Two futons - one in the master, another in the living room - make for extra room. Three beautifully appointed bathrooms give everybody in your group a chance to get ready easily and in good time.

Kids can get a head start on fun with the collection of children's bikes in the garage. Adults can make the three-minute drive up the road to Wildwood Recreation Area, a beautiful 550 acre park nestled against the Salmon River where you can explore the interpretive trails among the old-growth forest. Hikers can trek on 31 trails in the Welches area. The nearby Sandy River is a great place to paddle the kayak or fish. There's golfing at nearby Resort at the Mountain (about two minutes away). And, of course, in winter skiers and boarders can hit the slopes at Skibowl, about 15 minutes away, or historic Timberline (about a half-hour) where you can also visit the iconic, Depression-Era lodge.

Great for large group - backyard winter wonderland

  • 4 of 5

The house was great - comfortable for large group, some with kids, some without. It snowed while we were there so the backyard was gorgeous, particularly enjoyed from the hot tub. Well stocked kitchen made for easy group meals. The house would be absolutely perfect for us, if it were in Government Camp...but outside of that would happily stay here again.

Great home for big group

  • 4 of 5

We did our annual President's Day weekend here and the house was very comfortable. Hot tub was great, snow that we got our second day made for a winter wonderland in the back yard. Kitchen was well stocked, even had simple spices which I always find so helpful...good pans (terrible knives), but overall great for a big group with kids.

Great house for a large group!

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here with my husband's parents and his brother's family to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. Plenty of room to spread out, the kids loved the bunk beds. (They split up into a 'boy room' and a 'girl room'). The house was comfortable and clean. It was close to Government Camp for all our snow activities.

The stay was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

Love that the dining room, living room, and the porch are all in one open space. It made it easy to get together in one room and enjoy company.
