|Minimum Stay||1 - 2 nights|
Escape to a unique gem nestled in the forest overlooking the Sandy River, perfect for a romantic getaway. Built by two Alaskan prospectors in the 1920s, the main cabin is the only cordwood cabin on Mt. Hood. This construction uses log slices in its walls, giving Little Yew Lodge its endearing polka dot exterior. Rough-hewn timber beams and an original handbuilt fireplace maintain its historical allure, while the décor is updated with a vintage/modern sensibility.
*Note: one night stays are allowed when reserving within a 1 week window or when only a one night stay is available (i.e. when the surrounding nights are already booked).
Enjoy drinks on the deck or around the firepit, both overlooking the river and surrounded by 100-year old Doug Fir, Cedar and Yew trees. A charcoal grill and picnic table allow for al fresco meals accompanied by the sound of rushing water.
Once inside, you’ll want to cozy up on the Chesterfield in front of the fireplace, assembled by hand with local river rock. The names of the two prospectors who first warmed themselves by this beauty, Bob and Brian, are carved into the mortar. Play a record from a varied collection that includes jazz, classical, 80’s and afrobeat. The armoire holds games from Jenga to Settlers of Catan.
Climb the handcarved wooden staircase to the loft where you’ll find a 37” flat screen TV set up to stream movies, news, sports, etc. via Roku, an HD DVD player, movies, and books. A queen bed serves as additional sleeping or just more area on which to lounge.
Though there are many restaurants nearby, the kitchen is stocked for cabin-cooked meals. You’ll enjoy the use of All-Clad and cast iron pots and pans, Wusthof knives, spices/sugar, and extras such as the:
onion soup bowls,
bakeware, and more.
Coffee lovers you can start your day using the espresso machine, french press or classic drip. Complimentary roasted coffee beans and a selection of teas are provided.
Eventually it’s time to retire to the adjacent cottage where you’ll find the bathroom, featuring a rainfall shower head, and the plush nest of your bedroom. The queen bed, with memory foam topper and Hungarian goose down comforter, ensures an indulgent night’s rest.
All of Mt. Hood’s attractions are close by – summer and fall guests can embark on classic hikes, kayak and visit innumerable fishing spots. Winter and spring guests are a quick drive to ski resorts (15 mins to Ski Bowl; 35 mins to Mt. Hood Meadows).
Dogs are welcomed with an additional $10 nightly fee (capped at $20).
Firewood is provided.
Down-alternative bedding is available for guests with allergies.
A required 7% county/state sales tax will be added to all reservations.
While we're inveterate travelers having visited 6 of the 7 continents, we're also deeply devoted to the Pacific Northwest. Owning a cabin on Mt. Hood as a getaway has been a dream for us. We're excited to share it with others who seek the same type of refuge.
Rebecca Schoon and Peter Kahn purchased this cabin in 2013
We feel a strong connection to the Mt. Hood area, as we know many in our region do. Rebecca has summited the mountain and both of us have snowboarded down its slopes innumerable times. We hike its trails in the summer and cross country ski through the forests in the winter. It's amazing to be able to drive just an hour from Portland, yet experience the relaxation and adventure that comes from truly 'getting away'.
We searched for just the right property that would have a heavy dose of historic charm, while offering a modern, comfortable experience. The sound of the river that greets you as you emerge from your car is the perfect welcome to a space that invites relaxation.
The unique details of this cabin are endless, from the handbuilt fireplace to the woodland-themed tiling in the kitchen and bathroom. The location is secluded and private, while still convenient to Hwy 26.
A cozy and comfortable getaway in the woods. So peaceful and magical!
What a beautiful vacation home! Owners are so friendly and responsive. They have put so many thoughtful touches into this home to make visitors feel welcome and comfortable. The river makes for such a peaceful setting. We will definitely stay again. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!
Had a great overnight stay in this cozy cabin. The owners have thought of everything. It was a perfect mix of rustic cabin feel with modern touches to make the stay comfortable.
A beautiful little oasis. Lovely cabin, clean and perfect in every way.
I loved this cabin! So warm and cute and the details of all the little things were so awesome! I wished that my stay was longer si I could enjoy the scenery and warmth longer! I appreciate the use of all things green and earth friendly and loved the record player! We'll be back!
