SPACIOUS AND QUIET! ALL THE AMENITIES! WI-FI, GAMES, NETFLIX, RIVER VIEW/ACCESS!

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Brightwood - Sandy Riverside Retreat

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 10 Sleeps Home Away From The Bustle Of City Life!

MID-WEEK APRIL SPECIALS! 1 NIGHT FREE WITH STAYS OF 2 NIGHTS OR MORE SUNDAY-THURSDAY

GORGEOUS VIEWS OF THE RIVER FROM THE BACKYARD! STEPS AWAY FROM THE BANKS...

Our 4 bedroom, 2 full bath, spacious retreat is situated right on the banks of the Sandy river, with a view that cannot be matched! The major features you can enjoy are:* fantastic views and large deck* gas grill, and river rock wood fireplace* comfortable for large groups* close to ski resorts and outdoor activities

In the summer you can relax on the deck in the warm evenings, lounging in the patio chairs or sitting at the table with friends. There is plenty of room for large groups and lots of seating. The winter time often brings snow, and the river becomes a serene escape from the bustle of the city. Our retreat is located only minutes away from several ski resorts.

The retreat is just steps away from the Sandy River surrounded by beautiful Aspen trees and the large outdoor deck provides great outdoor entertainment for family and friends.

We’ve included everything you need to stay connected to the outside world while you lose yourself in ours! The retreat has WiFi, cable television, and a long distance land line, just in case your cellular service is unreliable. We've also included the ability to stream Netflix, for those of you that prefer no commercials!

Our 4 bedroom, 2 bath home, provides everything you would need to make this your home away from home.

With a gorgeous river rock fireplace and 55 in flat screen television and Blu-ray DVD player, you can lounge on our leather couches and have the best of both worlds. The large picture window provides the perfect view of the forest and river combined!

Upstairs, you will find the master bedroom with pillow top queen mattress, 32 in flat screen, complete with Blu-ray player. Also a shared bathroom with a tiled, double head shower.

The living, dining room, and kitchen provide the open atmosphere while making a meal in our well appointed kitchen, and enjoying your loved ones.

There is a lovely breakfast bar with seating for four, as well as a beautiful dining set to accommodate 6 more.

Downstairs you will be amazed at the space! 3 bedrooms, 2 are host queen beds(1 with a 32' flat screen), the 3rd houses 2 sets of sturdy bunk beds for children, teenagers and adults alike.

Our family area consists of board games, cable television, X-box, and a gaming table. Even a sofa if you’d prefer to snuggle up with one of our books!

Our quaint neighborhood is just 20 minutes to Ski Bowl, Timberline and Mt. Hood Meadows for excellent skiing and snowboarding. Hiking and biking trails are numerous and a host of restaurants and little shops line Highway 26 just 5-10 minutes away as well.

There is a full grocery store, gas station and several shops just a few short miles away. The local tavern, Brightwood Inn, serves decent food and drinks at very reasonable prices, and there is a quick market about a mile away. There is simply too many activities to list and we're a short trip to everything the Mt. Hood area has to offer. See the map and our guest book for numerous more details.

About Stacy & Craig

We've been blessed with 4 wonderful children who happen to love the mountain and wilderness just as much as we do! We've spent years coming up to the mountain, and finally decided it was time we have a little place to call our own family retreat. We want to share our joy of the mountain with you and yours a well!

Stacy & Craig purchased this house in 2012

Why Stacy & Craig chose Brightwood

We were so fortunate to find this property like we did. We wanted to have enough space where our kiddos could enjoy themselves, but, also have enough room to separate ourselves as well!!! HAHA! The location and view were really the deal sealers for us...see for yourself and you'll know why!

What makes this house unique

With the Sandy River view, how could you not fall in love at first sight?!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stacy, thank you! That was so thoughtful, and such a nice gesture. We are comfortable already. You are good at what you do. The house is super clean, and the decor is sharp.

The river is gorgeous. The kids are so impressed.

I like to be pleased, and you have done that. Great customer service!

Mt. Hood Trip

  • 4 out of 5
Nice, comfortable property. We were in town for a family wedding, and the house was perfect accommodation for my family. Wish the underbrush was not so thick so we could actually see the Sandy River from the deck, but we could certainly hear it. Met a few neighbors and they were very nice. Loved the Mt. Hood area!

We had a great time!

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived for our week-long stay, having had no trouble finding the house, which is nestled in a cozy neighborhood very close to Mt Hood. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The owners even left a few gluten-free goodies as a welcome gift! The kitchen and baths were clean and everything was functional. The kids enjoyed the board games and the XBOX 360, and we all had a good time playing down by the river (skipping stones and playing on the river bank). Thanks for letting us use your home for the week!

Beautiful, secluded, peaceful location and comfortable home

  • 5 out of 5
What a perfect house and location for a weekend of relaxation and fun! We spent our first night alone with our two young daughters, then invited two more young families to join us for night two. We had so much fun going on "adventures" near the river! The house slept six adults and five kids VERY comfortably, and we found that it had everything we needed. Thank you for such a peaceful getaway!

Great location, room for improvement

  • 3 out of 5
Based on all the 5 star reviews, I went to this home with really high expectations. Maybe too high. I left a little disappointed. I will start with what we enjoyed....
1) The location! Close to the mountain. Great if you're there to ski. The property sits right along the Sandy river. It was nice to hear the river.
2) The owners! Every time I had a question, they were very quick to respond to my emails and very helpful.
3) The layout! The downstairs area was great for kids. A seperate area for them to play and watch TV was nice.
4) The fireplace! My favorite part! It was beautiful and super cozy!

Now for the not so great parts....
1) The heat! Or should I say lack thereof. We got there Friday evening and stepped into a FREEZING home! Every heater in the home was completely off. We promptly turned on all the heaters and found several of them not working(metal wall heaters). It was so cold I had to send my husband to the store to get firewood that night! We eventually found some heaters in a closet upstairs which helped a little.
2) The beds! I can't speak for all the beds but I can for the one I slept on downstairs. It was literally the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on in my entire life! It was like a 1970's rv mattress, really thin, noisy and old!
3) The kitchen! I noticed someone else noted the home could use more/new cookware in their review before we stayed there and the owners commented they had bought more so I fully expected great cookware. There is a lot of very small pots and pans, not ideal for large groups as the size of the house suggests. They are also in horrendous condition with the Teflon peeling. Cooking utensils were also in need of replacing. Lots of spoons, ladles, etc. but all very cheap and flimsy. So much so that when we tried to stir beans, the spoon kept bending! We were provided with only three garbage bags! We used all three by the second day and had to go the store to buy more.

I personally would probably not stay at this home again. But given the affordable price and location others might. Perhaps I did just set my expectations too high. With some updating and changes to the home, it would be really nice!

Owner's Response: We take all feedback very seriously and appreciate all the comments in your review. We have addressed all of the comments in your review and really appreciate you pointing out some of the improvements that we could make.

All guests should know we want you to have a GREAT experience at our properties , and no matter how small or big the issue, call us anytime we will pick up the phone and help you.

1) Heaters are in proper working order. We have instructed housekeeping to leave the heater at 58 degrees in order for new guests arriving during the cold weather to not have to what so long for the home to warm up.
There was a typical power outage in the area that week and the breakers were not tripped back on. A simple phone call or email would have quickly resolved that issue.
In addition we have also provided 2 more back up heaters in the event that should happen again. So now, every room has a wall unit heater and a backup heater just in case there is an issue with the wall heater.
2) We have replaced both queen mattresses with new pillow top sets. We hope this increases the comfort level.
3) All of the old pots and pans have been removed and replaced with 2 brand new T-Fal sets.
We have also taken away some of the plastic cooking utensils and added some utensils with metal handles but a heat free grip to add to the cooking experience of some thicker foods.
4) We have instructed housekeeping to leave an entire box of garbage bags in the panty closet to ensure every guests is able to properly despose of their trash.

We appreciate your stay and do hope you would consider us again in the future to experience the changes we have made!

Thanks again!

Thanksgiving With Family

  • 5 out of 5
I reserved the Sandy Riverside retreat for a Thanksgiving weekend with my children, grandchildren, niece and nephew. We seldom are able to get together as a family and this home served as the perfect place for our holiday reunion.
When we arrived the place was decorated for Christmas and holiday music was playing. It was simply beautiful. We ate like kings with food we prepared in the roomy kitchen. We enjoyed fires in the fireplace as well as the fire pit in the back. We watched Blu-ray movies on the flat screen tv in the living room. We also watched some Netflix and You Tube. The kids enjoyed playing video games downstairs on the Nintendo Wii system.
I purchased a monthly family pass to the fitness center at the resort across Hwy 26. It was less expensive to do that than to get individual passes for my family and it allowed us unlimited access to their pool, spa and fitness facility.
We took walks along the Sandy River behind the house, took a drive up to Timberline Lodge, read books and relaxed.
I very much enjoyed watching my family enjoy themselves.

Beautiful Home

  • 4 out of 5
Five women and four children (age 8 mos. to 13 yrs.) had a lovely fall retreat weekend at this home. The home was in wonderful condition, new upgrades, great activities inside for the kids (games, cards, video games, Netflix- lots of options), and wonderful furnishings & beds. Since it was the worst rainstorm in years, we spent a lot of time inside, although we did get to see the Sandy River rise about 4 feet overnight- impressive! The only reason we (collectively) are giving this 4 out of 5 stars were for a couple of smaller reasons: 1. The faucet in the kitchen needs to be replaced- feels like it is not attached to sink well and is just old 2. The pots/pans could be upgraded- it was hard to cook for so many people with such a limited amount of pots/pans. Also, they were not in very good condition. (There were plenty of dishes/glasses/silverware, etc) 3. (And this is not really a complaint, more an FYI) When you turn the hot water heater on, if you turn the wrong nob, it gets incredibly HOT. So hot that several of us were surprised while washing dishes/showering. (With small kids in the house, this could be a really scary thing.) Maybe if the actual temp could be set so that it cant' be changed, or a note on the water heating directing which nob to use, would be helpful. Overall, we loved the ambiance, fireplace, decor, cleanliness and the highchair and baby gate for kids- those extras make this a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank your for your feedback! As always, we take everything to heart and truly appreciate all suggestions.

1) We have installed a new faucet in the kitchen.
2) We have provided another set of cooking pots and pans as well as more baking pans.
3) We have better labeled the hot water heater to provide ease of use as well as to suggest the proper temperature setting.

We hope this will help all future guests as well as you should you return to stay with us!
