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.

Best Rental on Mt Hood

  • 5 of 5

I will be back again, you can bet your bottom dollar I will! Kathy was so easy to talk to and she offered me suggestions as to where to eat while we were there. Her kitchen was well stocked and the whole cabin was very clean! Cleaner than my home! Beds were very comfortable and the cabin was very spacious. Thanks Kathy for letting us stay! We will definitely be back! Maybe next time we will try out your cottage. Pictures look very inviting!

Almost forgot, the hot tub was a great evening closure! The cleanest we've ever seen too! No smelly chemicals like other rentals with hot tubs we've stayed at.

A perfect Mount Hood-area retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the larger Kabin because Kathy's Kottage was book for the weekend of our trip. First, I have to say that Kathy was great to work with. In a telephone conversation, we clarified our needs for the weekend, and Kathy offered some great suggestions for our time in the area. She was so pleasant and easy to work with, we were eager for our time in the Kabin.

We were not disappointed. The kabin was very well-kept and had everything we needed. As advertised, the river runs nearby and the place is within walking distance of stores and amenities on the highway. Furthermore, there are several outstanding restaurants on the main highway within 10 minutes of the kabin. We spent one day driving to Hood River and another day at Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood. Our stay in Kathy's Kabin was all too short, and we are already planning a return.

Kathy was easy to work with and very helpful. Thanks!!

This Cabin Is Perfect!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here for a winter wonderland experience. It was easy to find and within walking distance to the store, coffee shop and Dairy Queen. Timberline, Government Camp and Trillium Lake are all within a short 15 minute or less drive from the cabin. The sounds of the rain on the roof and nearby river were perfect to unwind and relax. I highly recommend this cabin and will stay here in the future.
