Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Welches - The Cedars Cabin

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Have a rustic cabin in the woods experience, but with modern comforts in this dog-friendly, two-bedroom, one-bathroom Welches vacation rental with space for up to four mountain-loving guests and one friendly dog (for a small nightly fee). Secluded among towering cedars and firs, this abode offers great amenities like indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a private outdoor hot tub, and is just minutes to unbridled wilderness along the Salmon River on Mount Hood!

Located just past the Resort at the Mountain's golf course on the south side of Mount Hood, The Cedars is a quiet escape from the bustle of Portland, which is just 46 miles away but a whole world apart. It's also just a few short miles south to the picturesque Salmon River - the entire length of which is given federal protection under its "Wild and Scenic River" designation. Fishing, kayaking, hiking, rock climbing, and many more outdoor activities are within an easy four-mile drive to the trails of the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness.

The home itself is perfect for a relaxing weekend trip with a few friends or a romantic getaway with a loved one. With wood panel walls, a quaint fireplace, and comfy couches and chairs, the living room beckons for you to settle in and make yourself at home. In this room you'll also find a TV with a DVD player, and a CD player and iPod dock for use.

You can enjoy the outdoors, even if there's a chill in the air, thanks to the outdoor fireplace on the porch. Back inside, you can also find WiFi, and a collection of games, books, and puzzles for entertainment during a downpour.

The home's well-stocked kitchen is compact but offers modern appliances and enough cooking space to whip up a great meal. And when the meal is ready, enjoy it at the four-seat wood table adjacent to the kitchen.

If you've hiked all day and need to soothe your sore muscles, take a dip in the private outdoor hot tub, which is even covered for use during inclement weather.

When it's time for sleep, retire to either of the home's two bedrooms, which have queen beds that will comfortably accommodate up to four guests. Modestly furnished but comfortable, these rooms are also bright with plenty of natural light streaming in from picture windows.

Only 19 miles to Timberline Lodge and Ski Area and 24 miles to Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort, this home's location is perfect for skiers and snowboarders looking for a peaceful stay that's far enough from any crowds yet close enough to easily get to the slopes.

Tranquil and relaxing, this dog-friendly, two-bedroom Mount Hood vacation rental is a peaceful escape from the city into the beautiful mountain wilderness of Oregon's tallest mountain!

Lovely spot, need adjust expectations though

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented the cabin for 4 days and 3 nights. We loved the size, wood burning stoves, and overall atmosphere. We brought our Australian Shepherd who thoroughly loved playing outside and sitting by the fire. The managing company keeps the place very clean and does not require extravagant work by the guest at the end of the stay. I could not give a 5 star rating because the hot tub was cloudy and would not heat up. 90 degrees does not a hot tub make. Additionally, the driving path to get to the house itself required a Subaru or something like it to navigate with the crater-sized pot holes. Finally, the rental was not as secluded as we had hoped as it was literally in the backyard of one house and the front yard of another. However, the town is secluded and quaint while providing access to good coffee and a lovely spa. It was also very close to lots of Mount Hood trails for fun exploring. Overall, I would go back again with adjusted expectations and hopeful that the hot tub and driving paths were repaired.

We planned on BBQing the whole weekend and the BBQ pit was disgusting and looked as if it had never been cleaned. The axe used to chop wood had been broken and taped back together, therefor could not even be used. We were only able to burn a small amount of wood in the outdoor stove which was disappointing. Also, the hot tub could use some sort of walk way (pavers) as it was very muddy going from the house to the hot tub and back and forth. We had a dog with us that we picked up after, and while the neighbors 3 dogs wandered over and were in the yard using the bathroom several times, two guests stepped in dog poop in the yard (not pleasant).The photos taken for this property make it look secluded which it definitely is not. The fact that there were several houses extremely close (one on the same property) seemed to be as if that purposely was not disclosed. I definitely will not recommended nor will we be returning to this property.

Owner's Response: We apologize that your stay was not more positive. The Property Manager is working on getting the BBQ pit cleaned out and the ax replaced. We will do our best with the neighbors to keep their pets in their own space.

Very quaint and comfy cabin

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay with our dogs for the weekend. It was raining the whole time but it was nice to relax inside and watch some TV, or sit out on the porch and watch rain, or sit out in the hot tub. The cabin has all the amenities you could need and was kept very clean. It's got a few quirks but nothing that bothered us. The propane fire place kept us nice and warm the whole time.
