IF YOU'RE JUST LOOKING FOR A ROMANTIC GETAWAY? YOU'VE COME TO THE PERFECT PLACE. KATHY'S KOTTAGE IS FULL OF ROMANCE! CHECK OUT KATHY'S KOTTAGE PICTURES. YOU'LL FALL IN LOVE ALL OVER AGAIN. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED IN CHOOSING KATHY'S KOTTAGE!

KATHY'S KOTTAGE IS IMPECCABLY CLEAN! You won't find any dust, dirt, dead bugs or spider webs inside my home!

Kathy's Kabins has created an Enchanting, Romantic Kottage to her list of Great Getaways. Kathy's Kottage overlooks the Zigzag River in Rhododendron, which is located in Mt Hood National Forest. Kathy's Kottage gets snow, especially at 1560 feet elevation. The pictures will prove it!

This remodeled, unique, 2 bedroom, 2 bath Kottage, was originally a Lodge for the miners in the early 1900's. Kathy's Kottage has quite a bit of history behind the original name 'Gorton Lodge'. Although Kathy's Kottage has been updated, it still retained it's 'Lodge Look' on the inside.

At Kathy's Kottage, you will enjoy the sights and sounds of the Zigzag River and the views of the mountains. You will also enjoy the comfort and peacefulness!

When you enter Kathy's Kottage, you'll walk into the enclosed porch which has a desk that's perfect for that inspiring writer! There's a bookcase with lots of books, bring one, take one! Board games, cards and puzzles too. Also on the desk is tons of Brochures, you're Welcome to grab some. You also have a stunning view of the Zigzag River and the Mountains. (THE PERFECT BACKDROP FOR A WEDDING)

From there you'll enter into the Entertaining/Living Room,(18x30) which was the Reception Room when it was Gorton Lodge. The decor has been kept in it's original condition with the woodsy, cabiney look and feel of a Lodge. The 2 Sofas open up into Queen size beds, which will sleep up to 4 extra people comfortably, especially handy for those late night friends.

There is a New Sony 48" Flat Screen HDTV, GREAT FOR WATCHING FOOTBALL, BASEBALL AND BASKETBALL GAMES! There's also a DVD player for your viewing pleasure. (Kathy has a huge list of movies you can rent for FREE!)

Kathy's Kottage is the perfect place for ENTERTAINING TOO, but yet, Very Romantic... Put a few logs into the Fireplace, sit back and relax to the sounds of the crackling fire and the sounds of the Zigzag River.. Catch up on 'OLD TIMES'.....

The Dining Room shares the Living Room and the dining table can seat up to 8 people to enjoy that gourmet meal you have prepared in Kathy's well stocked Kitchen, which has been updated.

Kathy's Kitchen comes complete, with a dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer with ice maker, garbage disposal, microwave, cook top stove and oven. All small appliances which includes, coffee pot, tea pot, coffee grinder, crock pot/slow cooker, flavor wave oven, electric roaster, electric skillet, roasting pan, hand mixer, blender, waffle maker, utensils and basic spices, are supplied. There's even a washer and dryer added for your convenience. Kathy also included an iron and ironing board. Hummm..who uses those anymore?

Prepare yourself a beverage, step out onto the deck, sit by the railing and take in a breath of fresh Mountain air, as you watch the river pass you by. Or, on those brisk mornings, sip your morning cup of coffee or tea at the breakfast nook and enjoy the sights of the River and Mountains.

The Master Bedroom is romantically darkened by the walls of nature surrounding Kathy's Kottage. Drift off to sleep on Kathy's massive, very comfortable King size bed, along with your own private bath. There's even a TV, with a DVD/VCR. Climb into bed and cover up with Kathy's high quality sheets and down comforters. Lay back and relax and take in the sounds of the fast and furious Zigzag River. You can hear the river in every room!

Remember, Kathy only puts "TOP OF THE LINE" mattresses inside her Kabins. No lumpy or squeaky beds in Kathy's Kottage, you'll get a good nights sleep!!

The Guest Bedroom, comes complete with an Antique, Queen bed, a tv, ample closet space and a dresser too. The antique decor and the sounds of the Zigzag River will relax you and take away your cares.

Outside on the deck you'll find the Hot Tub, which is just a few steps away from the Zigzag River and the front door. Step down and look up at the stars, as you take in the sounds of Nature, in your private, secluded Hot Tub, in Mt Hood National Forest. What a relaxing and peaceful night!!!

Even though Kathy's Kottage has 2 bedrooms, it's a romantic, cozy retreat for that special getaway, ski outing, weddings, honeymooners or a holiday retreat for 2-8 people. Kathy's Kottage has welcomed several couples who have performed their wedding vows on the deck. What a beautiful and stunning backdrop!

Kathy's Kottage is just a 60-minute drive from Portland Airport, 9 miles to Government Camp and Mt Hood, and you're within walking distance to necessities. Take a short walk over a swinging foot bridge to a little grocery store, Dairy Queen and restaurants. Don't forget to stop by and see Greg at Mt High Coffee (next to Mt Hood Village Market) for his Great Lattes, Espresso's, Smoothies and the BEST Bisquits and Gravy on the Mountain! Be sure to tell Greg, Kathy's Kabins sent you!!

Check out our eatery's and espresso shops. We have the best golf course on the Mountain too! If you're into golfing, book your date and tee time and drive only 3 minutes to our local golf course, The Resort at the Mountain. Then, come on back and step down into Kathy's hot tub and relax after that long day on the golf course or the 19th hole!

Once you've stayed at Kathy's Kottage, you'll come back again!! You won't be Disappointed!

If all of this sounds exciting and relaxing to you, then reserve it now for your next getaway.

REMEMBER, KATHY'S KOTTAGE DOES NOT CHARGE CLEANING FEES!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our Family, Mom, Dad, two adult daughters, 21 yr old grandson and 16 yr old granddaughter enjoyed our stay in your lovely Kottage so much. Since we are from Texas, we can only hope we could come back often. Your hospitality was more gracious than we would have even expected. We loved the décor of the Kottage and we were so comfortable. Loved the deck and the hot tub! The view and the sound of the river was so relaxing and beautiful. We came to enjoy the beauty of Oregon and your Kottage has topped our stay from any of our other many vacations. Hope we can return again and will certainly recommend it to anyone we know that may be planning a trip to this area of Oregon!

God Bless

Truly clean and comfy in a BEAUTIFUL setting!

  • 5 of 5

When I first read Kathy's description on her home, I was intrigued by how highly she seemed to value cleanliness and comfortable beds - both of which are very important in my search of a place to stay. We were not disappointed! It was as clean as she spoke about and the beds were divine.

Our group was my husband and myself, my parents, our 8 month old baby and our labrador. We all had just what we needed and really enjoyed the stay. My parents are very active and had been looking for the more adventurous side of things, which they were able to find just a few miles down the road. With the baby, we were limited on our adventures, but could spend the evenings using the very clean jacuzzi and enjoying the incredible view of the river - all just steps away from our sleeping baby inside.

The kitchen is set in a way so that you're not likely to disturb anyone who may be sleeping in either bedroom - which is great! The home has all the quaint/cabin feel you'd want in this setting, but with all the modern conveniences. (I.E. clean, nice showers/bathrooms, stove, oven, sink, dishwasher, etc). I was so very pleased with how well the kitchen was appointed. There were plenty of various pans and kitchen utensils. There was also an array of spices/food products to be helpful, yet not imposing (I.E. olive oil, vinegar, salt/pepper, etc).

The outdoor setting was truly divine - peaceful and feels like you're miles away, but just a 5 minute walk over a cool (and sturdy) footbridge to a little market and a few small town restaurants, although we did not get out to try them. We went down the road and up to Timberline for an awesome view - we were too early for a nice dinner, but I imagine it'd be a great place to try.

We did try to disconnect from technology but I had a little work to do, so the wifi was nice to have. It was a little spotty the first night, but worked well the rest of the trip. Also, we loved the radio in the living room - in line with the cabin's overall feel - quaint-like charm, but modern and efficient. :)

All in all, I would highly recommend this home and we will certainly be visiting again. Clean, comfy and an incredible setting. Thank you, Kathy, for everything!

Can't wait to go back for another weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

The house is cool and cozy in the early summer heat, relaxing at night with a glass of wine and a dip in the hot tub while listening to the river, has all the amenities you need and is a fantastic experience away from your "every day life". We we're planning our next visit here halfway through our last my weekend there! And Kathy didn't steer us wrong on the best biscuits and gravy, the coffee was really great too. Many great little places to eat and lots of hikes in the area.

A great escape from the city

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great early Mar. weekend at the cabin and it was an incredible time. The river and snow were the perfect relaxing combination. The cozy cabin made us feel right at home and the kitchen was great for a nice dinner! The hot-tub was perfect, the tranquility was much needed and we will be back for a longer stay. I highly recommend this cabin and we look forward to going back soon.

Great house and a great location to skiIng

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was comfortable, clean with a well equipped kitchen. We especially enjoyed the wood stove and looking at the stars from the hot tub. The house is located not to far from the ski areas which is why we were there. We would definitely stay here again.
