About Chris Martin

I found Mt. Hood in my 20's when I ran away from Ohio and came across beautiful, historic Timberline Lodge (and a job at the ski resort). After meeting my beautiful wife in Seattle in 2001, we moved down with our baby girl to escape the big city. In many ways it was like coming home and the river is now like another family member. We still split our time between here, Portland and Central Oregon because we believe this is one of the most magical places on earth.

Chris Martin purchased this house in 2001

Why Chris Martin chose Mount Hood

We traveled all over and have looked at hundreds of homes and believe still that there are only a handful of houses in the world that have this view/proximity to a dynamic mountain river in a modern, updated house. And our proximity to the playground outside our doorstep (and in the welcoming towns of the Villages of Mt. Hood) and being only 40 miles from Portland make it one of the most exceptional places to get away, relax and play outside.

What makes this house unique

We love open concept. And open concept with a view was a dream. The river rock fireplace is amazing ~ we loved it for its look right away but now realize how much it makes you feel like you're in a mountain retreat.

Better than the pictures show

  • 5 of 5

Great place. What a setting. House was very clean and had everything you need. Close enough to a major highway but far enough away so no noise other than the river. We will defiantly be back.

The Riverhouse is INCREDIBLE

  • 5 of 5

The Riverhouse is a beautiful property. It is spacious and comfortable and the sound of the river is so relaxing. My sisters and I get together for a sisters vacation every couple of years and this property was perfect. The beds are super comfortable and the furnishings are fabulous. We enjoyed the hot tub every day and it was clean and hot! It rained two of the days we were there so we enjoyed the fireplace and watched the rushing river. We even saw a bald eagle which was a special treat. You will absolutely love this place. Chris is easy to work with and quick to respond. We will be back!

Car: necessary

We are at the base of Mt. Hood. We have 3 ski resorts nearby (one with a adventure park with sledding, zip lining, etc.) and we sit between 2 of the best fishing rivers in Oregon (Sandy/Salmon). The house feels very secluded, but you're only a 5 minute walk to our local spots or a 3 minute drive to fantastic restaurants, grocery/liquor store and resort amenities (golf, spa). Great hiking trails very close by in National Wildlife areas and Timberline is only 30 minutes away (a national historic monument with museum, shuffleboard, etc.) The house itself is a delightful respite from hustle and bustle and is decked out to be a great place to cook, sit in the hot-tub, relax by the fire or watch a great movie.
