Overview

About the property

Something special happens here. Quiet river setting with a cozy feeling.Yoga NE1

Our cabin is set up for relaxation and down time. We have kept most of the old fashion appeal of days gone by or vacations spent as a child. We kicked it up a notch with the extensive decks and covered hot tub and newly appointed stainless appliances with concrete counter tops. We kept the cushy furniture and antique touches leaving a feeling of a true getaway. Our feeling of true perfection is not matchy-matchy furniture, but rather acquired through the years where you feel able to kick your shoes off, build a fire, read a book and just feel simplicity. No one across the river and neighbors set a distance away. This home has the privacy many are lacking. If you are booking through VRBO please be aware they leave us no place to put our merchant fee costs of 3.75% this will be taken off your security.

About Laura Olson

We have been married 32 years. Dennis grew up in Seattle, Laura in Beaverton.

Dennis after working corporate, left opening his own businesses in Athena and Helix Oregon. One of these days we hope he will retire! lol

Laura was a stay at home Mom, rearing 2 children and opened and ran a 501c non profit Akita rescue for 10 years.

Laura Olson purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Laura Olson chose Rhododendron

Oh Goodness!

I have to tell you this was a long Journey to find the right one. We looked at so many properties. I wanted rustic- Dennis wanted a house. Unfortunately though I love the Steiner's many of the logs have not been well cared for and will cost a fortune to repair. I wanted a house with charm and good vibes. Dennis wanted new plumbing, modern amenities. We both new this was the house the minute we toured it.

What makes this chalet unique

One has to be here to experience the calm this house brings.

Of course the new decks and hot tub add to the feel as well as make it conducive to really enjoy the setting.

Wonderful

We loved our stay! The house is comfortable and arranged so nicely. It is well stocked with everything you need to cook a great meal and there is plenty of room for everyone! The owners were super helpful when we were trying to figure out the wood stove. We will be back!

Beautiful Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful, peaceful, well-stocked retreat. We found the place to be very clean with plenty of room for our family of five. The amenities were amazing including the barbecue, the washer and dryer and especially the Jacuzzi. The outdoor surroundings were very private and easy to access. The dense forest and rushing river on the property were truly incredible. We definitely could have used more time at this wonderful place. We will be back!!

Great summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is centrally located between the city, mountains and gorge areas. We enjoyed the deck and hot tub. There was ample bedding and seating (both to relax and to eat), but with a full house the bathrooms might be insufficient. The neighbors were closer than expected, but the trees provided plenty of privacy. Every kitchen necessity was provided. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review us Caroline. I am surprised you felt there to be a lack of privacy with neighbors as we usually hear quite the opposite. Unfortunately we cannot put any more bathrooms in as they are quite strict on the river anymore. All in all glad to hear you had a good time. Laura

Great location. Comfortable home. Peaceful setting.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Rhododendron. The location of the cabin was great for our daily outings to hike and sight see. We highly recommend the Mirror Lake to Tom, Dick, and Harry Mountain hike, hiking around the famous Multnomah Falls area off of the Historic Highway, and Lost Lake for a leisure day. As for the cabin, the kitchen was well-stocked with many basics (oil, spices, condiments) and plenty of cookware and dishes. We used the gas grill several nights as well. Sitting on the deck each morning to drink coffee, read a bit, and listen to the river flow was wonderful. The deck did not look like the picture on the website (some cobwebs and no living plants when we arrived), but it was still peaceful. We only used the hot tub one night, but it is a very nice hot tub. One shortcoming of the cabin is that the lower private bedroom has a child's futon bunkbed in it instead of a comfortable bed for a couple. The other private bedroom with a queen bed is upstairs connected to the open loft where the other beds (comfy king and 2 twins) are located. Because the futon was not comfortable for a couple, all 6 of our group slept upstairs with one couple in the loft with the 2 singles. Just something to keep in mind if there are 2 couples in your group. Overall, it was a great place to stay for a good price.

Owner's Response: Carrie, So glad your group had a nice time and the weather held. Thank you for your comments on the futon as we have been considering changing it out. The only issue there is that the bedroom will only fit a full not a queen bed so the futon is actually a bit bigger. Also so sorry about the flowers!! it has been a hot summer for the mountain and we have been B2B so the flowers simply are not getting watered enough. Not much I can do about the outside cobwebs as they come back after a few hrs....

High quality cabin and location

  • 5 of 5

We spent four lovely days here with my dog and elderly mother. She loved being able to hear and enjoy a river on the comfortable furniture. My husband kept remarking about the high quality of everything, especially the hot tub. We also enjoyed forays to Trillium Lake anf of course cobbler from the nearby Zigzag store, but really, the cabin in itself is vacationland!

Owner's Response: Karen, We are so pleased that you found our cabin relaxing and pleasing. I need to try that cobbler the next time we get a chance to visit up there. We sincerely hope you find occasion to stay with us again. Cheers! Laura
