We started a blog! Check us out on shiftingrivercabin.wordpress.com

Enjoy this cozy, but spacious, retreat with vast views of forested hills and historic Sandy river right outside your windows and doorstep. You'll be amazed by the sounds and smells of the outdoors, and will be awed by how different the river can look from day to day in course, flow, level and color.

The surrounding area offers activities year round for the outdoor enthusiasts, vacationers, and locals looking to get away for the weekend. Whether winter or summer, you're sure to find this cabin the perfect getaway where you can leave your troubles behind you, while still feeling like it's your home away from home.

While feeling the privacy and seclusion of a wilderness retreat, you'll have available to you many amenities. You'll have cable and WiFi available to allow for any needed connection to the real world as you relax and enjoy this cozy cabin while being warmed by the gas fireplace/stove.

This cabin is different than most in the sense that it is very bright and fresh. It's very family friendly, and can sleep up to 6 with the convertible sofa sleeper. People of all ages will be mesmerized by the beauty of the wilderness and river, and can enjoy both exploring the river and surroundings as well as access trails right outside the cabin.

With thriving area towns a very short distance from the cabin, you'll have plenty of choices for eating out or to stock up on supplies and enjoy your meal at the cabin.

About Steve and Monika

We're a couple of accountants with two little girls that enjoy getting away from our busy urban life. We've searched for the perfect place for quite a while and finally found it!

Steve and Monika purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Steve and Monika chose Welches

This area is beautiful and as interesting in the summer as it is in the winter months. We wanted a place that's a short drive from where we live. Being an hour away from Portland this drive is a breeze whether you're getting here Friday evening or heading straight to work on Monday morning. After a pretty long search we knew right away that this cabin/cottage was different from anything else that we had looked at.

What makes this cottage unique

The location is amazing, right on the river, with plenty of space around the house for kids to play. Easy to access from the road, but private enough. The house feels fresh and bright, not like some of the dark and moist cabins we looked at during our search.

Wonderful place

This is an amazing spot, wonderfully kept. I had a meeting there and needed to have dependable Internet. It worked great. Owners are great to work with. We would use it again.

Beautiful & Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is absolutely amazing! It's so peaceful with the river right there. You can see the river from the living area, bathroom and the main bedroom. It was so relaxing, a true getaway that's close enough to dining and stores that you feel like your out in the middle of no where without the drive. The only thing we didn't care for was no shower, but if you like baths then you'll love the claw foot tub. My son had a blast playing down by the river, throwing rocks all day long and digging in the sand. The owners were great too! Very helpful and welcoming!!

Charming, quaint, cozy and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful experience at the cabin. This home really has enough to keep everyone busy and happy. Internet for the teenagers ( and parents!), toys for the little ones, even movies and games for some good quality family time. Our family of 5 had enough room to enjoy being together or find some privacy. The cabin is clean, well maintained and tastefully decorated. We can't wait until our next visit to the cabin.

The perfect winter spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for a winter get away for two adults and two kids. We were close enough to everything that it was not a worry getting any where. The property was absolutely beautiful and the house was exactly as described. The sights and smells were a perfect greeting for two parents looking for a relaxing get away. We were able to pull up and start unloading quite easily which allowed us to feel right at home very quickly. In addition to this the kids settled right in, which made it much easier. The length of our stay made it easier to cook in the kitchen, which was very usable, as well as get used to every aspect of the cabin. The kids couldn't wait to come back, which is a recommendation we don't hear very often.

If you're looking for a nice little bungalow to get away to, or a comfortable cabin for a week or so, this is the place to stay.
