About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6 (4 adults)

Hold everything! This Welches vacation cabin has it all! A great location near the Mt. Hood National Forest - right near skiing and hiking, a private hot tub, tree-filled landscaping, and all the modern entertainment amenities you could ever want! All of that, plus this gorgeous Papa Bear Cabin is even dog-friendly.

From this centrally-located Welches address right on the Salmon River, you'll have your pick of restaurants, hiking trails, and even ski resorts. Mt. Hood Skibowl, Timberline, and Mt. Hood Meadows are all within 22 miles! And in summer, golf and spa services are a five minute drive away at The Resort at the Mountain.

Laid out on the inside like a grand mountain lodge, you'll love spending time in front of the floor-to-ceiling, wood burning fireplace. There's also a flat screen TV, cable, WiFi, a DVD player, VCR, and even a collection of VHS movies. And while you're enjoying the living room's ambiance, you'll have a pleasing view out onto the spacious deck.

This large main level also has a country-style kitchen with all the appliances you'll need for delicious vacation meals. After dinner, warm up in the deck's private hot tub, while you keep an eye out for shooting stars.

The three bedrooms and two baths at this gorgeous Mt. Hood getaway will sleep up to six guests and include features like a clawfoot tub, skylights, and colorful, warm quilts. There's even a washer and dryer here so you can always have clean, warm socks. You're also welcome to bring two dogs with you for an additional nightly fee.

This Welches vacation cabin is perfect for ski trips, fishing retreats, or any family and friend getaway based near the stunning Mt. Hood National Forest. Summer or winter, you'll never run out of activities here - even if your favorite one is just relaxing on the sofa, in front of a roaring fire.

Spend some time in the forest at this amazing Papa Bear Cabin. With a pleasing mountain lodge vibe and a great location, this Mt. Hood retreat will be your home-away-from-home in Welches.

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.



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!

Anniversary Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The cabin itself was like going back in time. The gorgeous stone fireplace set a wonderful mood for our anniversary weekend. The hot tub was in a great location, out of view of most neighbors and overlooking the river. The collection of classic music and movies was great. <br />

Due to the snow, we didn’t leave the cabin. We did try to take a walk but we did find the close proximity of neighbors and the advertised friendly neighborhood dogs a bit off putting.<br />

Overall, this was a place our family really enjoyed. If you like managing a fire place and spending time playing board games and watching movies, this the place.<br />

Family Labor Day Weekend

  • 4 of 5

It was a hot weekend. There was a fan or two available but we also brought a few of our own. Was not a problem. We selected this location because it was on a river. We loved that! The road to get to the house is not reflective of the actual house. The house is well appointed.

The Salmon River is the focus here

  • 5 of 5

Spent most our time on the beautiful back deck next to the river. Very relaxing and peaceful. Comfy, clean house too. Would be a great place for a family.

Cozy spacious oasis

  • 5 of 5

Prepared to go back in time and let the stress fall away. This place is very quaint and cozy. Perfect for a family of five. Could have accommodated more persons. Loved being on the river. Our only minor complaint would be that the master bed is slightly uncomfortable. Could use a small ice chest to take on the road.
