Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the lovely stay. Your cabin is so nicely remodeled and clean, clean, clean!

We found free wifi at Coffee Roasters, next to Thriftway, at Timberline Lodge and at the book store, next to Rendevous Restauraunt.

Rendevous is a nice restauraunt and we had many meals there.

We enjoyed the Hunchback Trail which is a 9 mile, one way hike up from the Zigzag Ranger Station. Also the paths along the creek in your neighborhood are delightful.

Short Honeymoon Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing a wonderful home from home. There is so much to do in the areas around or as we did relaxed and enjoyed a peaceful weekend. The pictures for the cabin don't show enough of just how amazing this place is. Although it was just me and my wife we are looking forward to booking in the future and bringing the family along. The rooms are beautiful and everything is fitting in it own way. My wife couldn't stop talking about how adorable the place was. The hot tub was that little extra special ad on. Everywhere is so clean and presentable. Kathy is a lovely person who is so helpful and really wants her guests to have the best of times there. We can't wait to visit Kathy's Cottage for our one year anniversary. Thank You so much Kathy for letting us stay in your dreamy cabin.

Perfect Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

11 of us stayed over the July 4th holiday weekend - 6 adults and 5 kiddos. It was amazing! Surpassed our expectations! The kids absolutely loved having the upstairs loft area to themselves. The adults were charmed with the house and surroundings. We can't wait to return!

Relaxing Get-away

  • 5 of 5

Kathy's Kabin gave us the much needed relaxing vacation we were looking forward to all year. The kabin had everything we needed and then some. Wi-Fi kept us connected to family; we watched movies (we brought them) and found Kathy has a huge list of DVD's if we needed them. The downstairs bedroom with the high ceiling was mesmerizing when it rained on the roof. So peaceful. We are a group of knitters and made progress on a few projects. Unfortunately there was no snow this year as we are also a group of cross-country skiiers. But we made the best of it and hiked the places we would of skiied. The hike around Trillium Lake on a clear sunny day was awesome. Especially when Mt. Hood is visible across the lake. We were able to drive right up to Timberline Lodge and snowshoed up Mt. Hood in the sunshine. Just outside the kabin are quick hikes along the river and we found a trailhead to Flag Mt. which gave us quite the workout. The hot tub sure was welcomed. I highly recommend this kabin and all the different sleeping arrangements it offers. The amount of bathrooms was perfect for our group. Kathy was accessible by email (or phone) for questions or concerns. We were well taken care of. We are hoping to try the kottage some day.

Excellent Accommodations! Everything we need was there...

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Kathy's Kabin during our trip to Oregon and I could go into all the details about how much we enjoyed Kathy's home but, there isn't enough room to really mention about all the wonderful ammentites Kathy has provided! The beds were so comfy and Kathy has put a lot of thought into her kitchen supplies! All the cooking utensils were there that I needed, as usually I encounter problems with not enough, like crock pots, electric skillet, etc., but everything was there. Kathy even had a coffee grinder and a bread machine. We cooked one night on Kathy's BBQ, and ran out of propane, but low and behold, she had another full tank right beside, how convenient was that! Kathy has thought of everything....

All I can say was WOW! Talk about clean, I don't know how she does it, but even the light switches were clean. My light switch covers usually have finger prints all over them, but not here at Kathy's Kabin! Most rentals we've stayed in had that musty smell, but somehow Kathy doesn't have that in hers, all you smell is CLEAN! This place is gorgeous and she has really paid attention to all the details. It's so cutesy, all decorated in Moose Theme. Our oldest son stayed in the John Wayne room and he said he could hear the rain on the roof one night and it put him right to sleep. Our 2 girls stayed upstairs in the loft and we couldn't get them to leave! We usually bring their games with us, but this trip we forgot, but no worries, Kathy had several games which kept them busy, they had a ball! Our next trip up here will be to Kathy's Kottage! I've seen the pictures and that's next on our "Bucket list"! We wanted to stay there, but she was booked. That's ok, because we really enjoyed ourselves, just the same. I'm happy to have had the experience of her cabin.

Thank you Kathy for allowing my family to really enjoy our trip to the MOUNTAIN in your beautiful log cabin. Oops...Log Kabin!

I would highly recommend Kathy's Kabin to everyone! You have to come stay atleast once and you will definitely come back. We are going to check out her Cottage next time, if it's available!
