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.

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 Mount Hood

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.

Frequent guest, delighted by new upgrades!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this lovely home many times and always love it. This time we were pleasantly surprised by the added features. A shower in the beautiful clawfoot tub, a full size refrigerator and the inviting fire pit by the river. Now, really there is nothing lacking at this property! Can't wait to come back again!

The cabin is located right on the Sandy River. Nice accomodations and convenient to hiking, sightseeing and all the Mt. Hood area has to offer. All the comforts of home. Owners were very responsive and attentive. Plan on returning soon!

Cozy, Comfortable, Amazing View!

My husband and two teenage daughters had an absolutely wonderful time! The cabin was cozy and had everything we needed to feel right at home. The view and proximity to the Sandy River was breathtaking! I would love to stay there again and would highly recommend it!

Relaxing Oasis

  • 4 of 5

Small little space for a quiet retreat with the sound of the river as a backdrop. Nothing fancy but comfortable for a family weekend away. Just as a warning the internet did not work well so don't plan on bringing your work with you - just enjoy nature and relax.

amazing riverfront property, perfect for families with little ones

  • 5 of 5

we've stayed at so many cabins in the Mt. Hood area over the years, and this one is going to be hard to beat. by far our favorite place we've rented. if you have little ones, its perfect, so set up for them to play and be entertained. the swingset is great, and toys and everything you will need. we loved playing in the sand, having fires in the fire pit, and enjoying walks around the surrounding area. Steve and Monika were both a pleasure to deal with. we will be coming back for sure, can't imagine staying anywhere else. thanks so much!
