Recently remodeled riverfront home with fireplace, firepit & W/D - dog-friendly

Located at the end of a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood street practically on the banks of the Sandy River, this rustic yet modern Rhododendron cabin has everything you need to enjoy the great outdoors in style. You'll love sitting outside and watching the beautiful river rush by while you wake up with your first cup of morning coffee. Spacious and open, this home is filled with familiar and positive vibes, and is dressed in charming decor. Step inside and leave your muddy boots and gear in the mudroom before heading into the house. (Remember to take advantage of the private washer and dryer to knock out your dirty duds!) The well-appointed living room features a handsome gas fireplace surrounded by lots of comfy furniture, the perfect place to entertain your guests while preparing tonight's home-cooked meal in the remodeled full kitchen. Boasting glistening tile countertops, terrific appliances, and plenty of cookware, this space is perfect for the accomplished family chef or culinary novice alike.

Downstairs, you'll find a full bathroom, a private library, and lots of board games to challenge the kids with. Upstairs, a cute loft area enjoys a daybed with a trundle and a small chair, plus the bedroom. This main bedroom features a king-size bed, ideal for spreading out to finish your favorite novel before dozing off. This bedroom also has a half-bathroom, a sitting area great for reading, and access to a balcony that overlooks the river. Between this bedroom, the daybed in the loft, and the sofa bed in the living room, this home can accommodate everyone comfortably. Use the free WiFi to research your next Rhododendron adventure, stream movies and music to your devices, or to find fun new recipes to play around with. Outside the living room, a furnished deck faces the river, so you can kick back to watch the water or eat an al-fresco lunch on a sunny afternoon. The kids will have a blast romping around the backyard with the family dog while you build a cozy fire in the outdoor firepit, the ideal place to enjoy a night of stargazing with hot, toasted marshmallows.

Rhododendron, a small town about an hour east of Portland, lies in a heavily-wooded, beautiful area along the river. On the other side of the highway is Welches, where you can play golf or stock up on groceries at the Thriftway. Just a few miles away, you'll find excellent mountain biking on the Sandy Ridge Trail. Plus, there are a plethora of hiking options, as well as good river fishing. And if your early-morning donut and coffee routine is a must-have, Sandy (under a 20-mile drive west) has a great donut shop, as well as many larger stores and restaurants. Of course, Mt. Hood waits just to the east of this vacation home, and a nearly 21-mile drive will get you to Timberline Lodge, where you can enjoy amazing skiing and snowboarding, or just building snow sculptures. However, you may just want to sit in your cozy rental home and enjoy the warmth of the fireplace while listening to the roar of the river.
