About the property

Step back in time into this grand historic Mt. Hood vacation rental cabin that exudes the ultimate rustic charm. Built in 1932, 5 years before Timberline Lodge, this classic Cascadian lodge is nestled on a secluded acre of woodland forest on Clear Creek. With 6 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, this is the perfect retreat for your next family reunion, group gathering, or romantic weekend getaway!


Master Bedroom: Queen Bed | Master Bedroom 2 (Bunkhouse): Queen Bed and 2 Twin Beds | Bedroom 3: 2 Twin Beds | Bedroom 4: 1 Queen Bed | Bedroom 5: 1 King Bed | Bedroom 6 (Bunkhouse): 2 Twin Beds

Throughout this unique 3,750-square-foot living space, you'll find knotty pine walls, vaulted ceilings, woodland-theme furnishings, colorful quilts, and other rustic touches, as well as modern amenities, such as WiFi, Netflix, Wii, cable TV, and DVD player.

The bright, airy kitchen offers lots of counter space and modern appliances, like a dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, spacious refrigerator, and more. The adjoining dining area provides sunny views through the large windows and ample seating for friends and family to gather for meals and board games. An extra-special treat is the fresh, pure water from Minikahda spring coming from the tap - no need for bottled water!

The lodge, which sleeps 12 people comfortably, is divided into 2 parts. The main lodge features 4 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The 2 bedrooms downstairs have 2 twin beds each, and the 2 bedrooms upstairs feature 2 twin beds and a queen bed.

An additional bunkhouse has a large upstairs master bedroom with a queen bed, a smaller bedroom with 2 twin beds, and 2 bathrooms downstairs. A laundry room with a washer, dryer, iron, and ironing board is also available for your use.

When you're looking for fresh air, open the door onto the wide veranda and adjoining deck to enjoy the tumbling waters of Clear Creek. Stroll down to the 700-foot-long lower deck with a gazebo that's the perfect venue for large gatherings. Just below, Clear Creek invites you to stroll along its grassy banks and relax to the sound of its rushing waters.


Thanks to its convenient location just off of Lolo Pass, 'Minikahda Lodge' is the ideal place for hikers, skiers, and outdoor enthusiasts to escape into nature. Begin your morning at the Ramona Falls Trailhead to enjoy a relatively easy trail to a truly spectacular cascade. And in the snowy winter months, you're only be a short drive from Mt. Hood Skibowl and Timberline - the latter of which boasts the longest ski season in all of North America.

Looking to play a round of golf? You're less than 4 miles from the Resort at the Mountain and its 27 manicured holes. The area also offers several excellent cafes and restaurants, as well as nearby grocery shopping in Welches.

Good average house

Heater wasn't working up on our arrival, the house was cold and wood was wet outside. House is big and for its age pretty nice but the heating is a problem
