Overview

About the property

2 bedroom/2 bath cottage surrounded by meadows and woods

Cedar Creek Retreat is located on 20 secluded acres of meadows and forest on a hill above a lovely creek. Enjoy the tranquility of nature in our modern cottage. Hike down a forest trail to private Cedar Creek frontage or enjoy the gas wood-stove in the living room. Keep your eyes out for wildflowers, deer, rabbits, humming birds, and eagles.

The home is very comfortable and has a nice layout.

Each of the two bedrooms have queen size beds and their own bathroom (one with bath, one with shower). A tri-fold pad is available for a fifth person. All rooms have views of the meadows and woods beyond.

The property location is on a dead end road a mile out of the tiny town of Yacolt, Washington, and an easy hour drive from Portland, Oregon. Yacolt offers a restaurant, pub, bank, post office, gas station, and basic grocery store. Be ready to prepare your own meals as restaurant options are limited.

For those who are up for time in the car, the property is a good base for exploring the south side of Mt. Saint Helens. Otherwise, there are lots of fun options nearby. A highlight is Moulton Falls park located 4 miles to the south. It offers lush forest, emerald green waters, fun footbridges, and spectacular waterfalls. There are a number of other very nice parks nearby along the East Lewis river including: Lucia Falls Park, Sunset Falls Park, and Lewisville Park. Other nearby activities include: Wine tasting at Moulton Falls Winery, Pomeroy living history farm, and the historic Clelatchie Prairie Railroad that operates a couple of weekends a month.

-Guests must be 25 or older to rent. No smoking or illegal drugs, and no pets.

-5 guests maximum, 2 car maximum. An additional child may be allowed with approval (6 guests total).

Relaxing, calming, good location

  • 4 of 5

This was a great experience. We loved the location and that it was away from everything but still close to everything. The house had everything we needed and we didn't need to bring anything but food. The outside was nice. I think the yard could have been mowed a little bit, and the trail that leads down to the creek could have been wider and cleaned up a little bit, but overall it was a great time.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for your feedback on yard and trail maintenance. We try to let the meadows go natural while the daisies and lupines are blooming in June. Once the flowers fade, we mow a larger area, while leaving some areas natural.

This was a terrific place!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family getaway. The location is beautiful and feels remote although it isn't too far. We were able to easily access the Lava Canyon of Mt. Helens. The house is well equipped and clean.
