Spacious Lodge for Eight with a Private Deck, Game Room, & Pool Table

Plan a mountainside escape in this stately Parkdale vacation rental with a secluded location and great amenities - including a game room - for groups of up to eight. Come winter or summer, this idyllic Mt. Hood lodge is the perfect place to take a break from the daily grind with family or friends!

The rustic abode is nestled in nature, yet just six miles from museums and shopping in town. Explore the Mt. Hood National Forest by mountain bike or hiking boot in summer, or hit the slopes at Mt. Hood Meadows or Cooper Spur Mountain Resort by snowfall!

The log cabin-style home is timeless with handsome leather accents, a cascading rock fireplace, and modern amenities including WiFi and stainless steel appliances. Soak up the fresh mountain air on your spacious front deck or flip a juicy hamburger on the gas grill. A bistro table and private views of the trees make this outdoor space a perfect summer hangout.

Svendsen Lodge is cozy, providing accommodating amenities for groups of eight. Guests can stretch their legs across four bathrooms and three bedroom suites. The bedrooms are spacious, providing great natural lighting and hardwood accents.

One suite has a queen-size bed. A second room offers a queen bed and unique loft, while the third room is ideal for families offering a queen bed and two twin beds. You'll have convenience amenities like central AC and a washer/dryer to make everyone feel right at home. There's also a jetted tub in one of the bathrooms.

Inside, enjoy social areas on the main level and private bedrooms upstairs. Warm your toes around the gas fireplace after a long day on the ski slopes or unwind with a family flick on the flatscreen TV. Are little ones arguing over the remote? Svendsen Lodge offers a library of books and a regal game room complete with a pool table and media entertainment for non-stop family fun!

Whether you're hosting a holiday dinner or packing a summer picnic, the open-concept kitchen and dining room is ideal for large groups. Modern appliances, including a dishwasher, french door refrigerator, and a formal table for eight, will make planing and serving meals a breeze.

In spring and summer, the mountain is a wonderland of mushrooms and wildflowers! Hike the Frog Creek Trail or pick up a map from the Hood River Ranger District to find the perfect fishing spot. Learn about the history of the region at the Hutson House museum, then enjoy pizza and brews at the nearby Saw Tooth Roadhouse.

In winter, the region is a hot spot for all snow sports, including snowmobiling, Nordic skiing, snow shoeing, and alpine runs! At Mt. Hood Meadows you can enjoy breakfast with Santa, then hit the slopes or watch and epic rail jam. Cooper Spur Mountain Resort boasts 50 acres of beginner and intermediate level terrain and even snow tubing!

This Mt. Hood vacation rental provides the perfect combination of backwoods relaxation and action-packed outdoor recreation. Get your group together for an intimate stay on the mountain!

My family & I really enjoyed our stay! The home is absolutely beautiful. There was plenty of space for everyone, the kids really enjoyed the "game" room downstairs.
A few things to note if you are thinking of staying here....
Google maps will tell you to keep going on Hillcrest Dr however that is incorrect, you actually need to take the 1st left off of Hillcrest Dr onto a gravel road then keep going up up up the gravel road until you reach the house.
The house *does have wifi/ however is not great, if you are planning to do any work or anything online in general be prepared to be somewhat frustrated.
Cell service is very spotty here as well (which was already anticipated)
While here we somehow locked ourselves out, thankfully someone was here to help us in less than an hour! We were very thankfully for her super fast and friendly assistance! (Please note, the door code is not the same as the spare key lockbox, this should be updated on the email that is sent with house instructions! That would have prevented our "lockout" from being an issue)
One other thing to mention is the oven/stove sounds like a revving engine when in use & the dishwasher squawks like a bird from time to time. While the kitchen is beautiful, the appliances may need some updating. There are plenty of dishes/pans/etc for all your cooking needs.
Also, the home has 2 DVD players however one will not open to allow a DVD to be added, the other one that does work was missing an hdmi cord to connect to the TV, thankfully for us my children brought our Nintendo switch & we were able to use our cord from home to make the DVD player usable.
Overall we were pleased with our stay in this home, we explored lots of nature, orchards, etc in the area & this was a comfortable place to come back to.

The Kitchen was stocked with all needed utensils and more. The inside finish work on this lodge is amazing. We had deer and turkeys pass through the driveway while sitting on the deck. Very comfortable beds and furniture. Fishermen: driveway is designed so I could back my 21ft Alumaweld boat around and get out
Alison H. Jul 2021
Very clean and well stocked home! Was the perfect home base during a busy wedding weekend for my brother! Would definitely come back again!
James K. Jul 2021
All in all a good rental. Lots of wood! Well maintained. And if you love big trophy animals on the walls you will like this place. Bizarre layout on first floor with master bedroom not directly connected to either of the first floor bathrooms. This house is a star example of how not to build in the wild land urban interface, so beware staying here during fire season.
Darlene L. Jul 2021
This cabin had everything we could possibly need and was a lovely home!
Judy B. May 2021
The property was beautiful and the accommodations were excellent! There was everything we needed and more! I highly recommend Svendsen Lodge.
Tina G. May 2021
The home is in a beautiful setting wit deer, turkeys, and elk not too far up the mountain. It affords privacy in a mountainous setting while being not too far from Hood River. The home is beautifully decorated with a cabin theme. Kitchen very well stocked. Oven fan is very noisy. Jets in tub don't work. BBQ grill burners don't work right. Tri level home with lots of stairs. The home is thoughtfully arranged, yet somewhat noisy (you can hear what is going on on all 3 levels. Overall a great home! We would love to come back.
Tammy S. Oct 2020
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home! We loved how well stocked the home was with towels, linens and cookware! Perfect for a large family getaway. I think the only thing I would suggest is a King Bed in the bedroom on the main level, but that's just a preference! Oh and the jet tub did not work. Otherwise, a beautiful home all around!
Donald P. Aug 2020
We were back in Hood River, we grew up but away from years ago. We rode mountain bikes and jumped cliffs into rivers during the day. In the evening we enjoyed the Svendsen Lodge for showers, dinners at the well equipped kitchen and some competitive billiards in the basement.
Spencer M. Jul 2020
Secluded, easy access! So many fun family activities to do in the area! Beautiful scenery! I would recommend adding locks to the bathroom doors, otherwise great!!
Manager response:
Hey, Spencer! Thank you for your review. We have notified our local staff about your suggestion of adding locks the bathroom doors. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention as your feedback is useful in helping us improve our service. We are thrilled to hear that your visit was enjoyable, and hope to host you again in the future!

Beautiful, well-appointed home in a great setting - very peaceful. A few of the advertised amenities don't function, though (jacuzzi tub and gas fireplace) and the house instructions were incomplete (missing lockbox code) which was a challenge when the batteries in the keypad doorknob had run out.
Barbara H. Dec 2019
Amazing lodge! High ceilings, very spacious, plenty of light...and bathrooms! Very functional kitchen for a vacation rental. The driveway (and lane up) is a bit daunting but all three vehicles made it in the snow. Our grandson saw 6 deer near the house before the rest of us were up. Beautiful setting in the trees and the snow just made it prettier. We made some nice Thanksgiving memories.
Vickie S. Jul 2019
Beautiful cabin in the woods! Easy access off main road to Hood and Parkdale/hood River. Well stocked with all you need. Good Beds and linens! Room to spread out. Perfect for our 6 adults & 1 child.
Corey C. Mar 2019
We had a great weekend with friends skiing and hiking (in the snow) on Mt Hood. The house was great and we wished we could've stayed longer and had more people join us!
Josh K. Aug 2018
Loved this home. Secluded and peaceful but close enough to enjoy day trips to hood river, local orchards and wineries. The only downside at all was the jetted tub was not working and there was a note saying not to use in the breaker box. 1 of the reasons we rented this home was for the jetted tub. It still served as a nice warm bathtub though. We will definitely rent again.
Manager response:
We apologize for the broken tub; it is scheduled for inspection with a technician the first week of October. Thank you!
Chris O. Aug 2018
Perfect for a family get-away. The lodge was well appointed and clean. Would stay again.
Jan K. Aug 2018
This home is just perfect. Our family felt like we staying in our own home. The quality of bedding, towels, and kitchen stock was so appreciated. There is so much room for everyone to relax. It does have a steep driveway so be sure to have the proper vehicle.
Bruce G. Jul 2018
Great log structure
Claire R. Dec 2017
This is a beautiful home, but the owners need to plow the 1/4 mile road and steep driveway when there is snow and ice. I understand from the neighbors that this is their responsibility. The listing does recommend 4wd, but even the house cleaner couldn't make it up the driveway in her 4wd. Luckily, a neighbor let us park in her driveway 2/3 of the way up. We are strong and had teenagers with us so we were able to hike in.

Owners need to invest in some basic maintenance as well. Breakers kept tripping whenever fireplace and TV were on at the same time - both upstairs and downstairs. Also, jets in main tub didn't work. Investing in a few reading lamps would be nice - only overhead lights available.

All of that aside, it's a cozy, beautiful home. Nice kitchen and great lay-out for cooking and dining.
Kathy K. Aug 2017
We were in town for 4 nights for a family wedding. We had 7 people in our party staying at the house. All of us enjoyed our stay, loved the secluded location of the house. There was plenty of room for everyone, sleeping arrangements worked out, plenty of bath towels without having to do laundry. Kitchen was well stocked for entertaining with plenty of dishes, silverware and pots and pans. Directions to home were spot on. The guys enjoyed the pool table every night too!! Would definitely stay here again if we ever make it make to that part of the country and highly recommend this home to others.
Patricia E. Aug 2017
Thanks for a nice place to spend with family.
Barbara P. Jun 2017
Svendsen Lodge is like staying in a tree house. It's surrounded by fir tree. The deck is great for grilling and eating! Plenty of activities in the house to keep all ages occupied with games, food, pool table and multiple TVs. VERY QUIET woods! And the walls are thick so you don't hear others in the house.
Dedrick B. May 2017
Simply amazing. Well stocked and organized. What a super home1
Casey M. Mar 2017
Big, spacious, beautiful lodge home. Stayed here with 3 families (including 2 babies and 2 toddlers) and we had ample space. Great location - easy drive to Hood River, Little John Sno Park, and Cooper Spur. Would definitely return here!
Ryan H. Dec 2016
Great lodge with plenty of room for a big family or group of friends.
Myrna F. Sep 2016
This is a lovely home and we enjoyed our stay. It is easy to find but you will not be walking to any shops, restaurants etc. When they say the home is located on a steep hill they are not joking!
Janine H. Aug 2016
This was my first time renting a home for a family vacation. I was thrilled with the ease of the whole experience. The Svensden Lodge was just perfect for us and we felt so at home there.
Jason G. Jul 2016
Beautiful, spacious vacation home, full amenities, fun game room. Great location for exploring the Columbia River Gorge and Mt. Hood. My family was very pleased with this rental, as it met and surpassed all our needs.
Miranda P. Jul 2016
This is an amazing house and our group had a wonderful time. The drive is very steep and gravel, so know that going in and take it slow in a low gear. The big bedrooms are full of light. It's a great house to share with other people/couples/family because of all the bedrooms and the big dining room table. The "futons" in the description are actually more like pull-out cots hidden in black leather ottomans. Our friends reported they were, not surprisingly somewhat uncomfortable, but worked in a pinch, and we were happy to have the extra sleeping spaces. When you go: a fun game is to try to count all the bears in the house. They're everywhere (art/decorations/light switches, etc)
Kisler C. Jul 2016
This was our family's first trip to Oregon and we could not have picked a better place to stay. The cabin was large enough that everyone had room to relax. It is very close to the fruit loop where we went daily for fresh produce. The scenery is absolutely breath taking. This will not be our last visit and we will request to stay in this cabin again.
Kristen C. Jun 2016
Paradise in a forest.....wake up to trees and deer and birds chirping. making dinner was a pleasure because of the deck, BAR b Q, big screen TV! Nice hike to the bottom of the mountain....You will love it....
Stephanie B. Jun 2016
We are thinking about planning a family trip in the next year or so - would definitely love to stay here again!
Donna W. Apr 2016
We stayed at this beautiful lodge home over Easter. The home is absolutely beautiful as well as the whole Hood River area. We enjoyed the town, scenery, hiking and visiting Mount Hood Meadows and Timberline. What a treat. We would stay here again and plan to come back in the fall for the harvest.
Shannon R. Mar 2016
Our family decided to switch it up this year and head to the mountain instead of the ocean for Spring Break...and I am SO glad we did! The Svendsen Lodge was PERFECT for our family! Because of it's close proximity to Meadows, we decided to purchase Spring passes for everyone...which was awesome. We could ski all day or sleep in and ski in the afternoon, without the pressure of having to "get our money's worth". We took the younger kids to Cooper Spur one day, where they enjoyed inner tubing for hours. Hood River was also a great day trip - amazing wine, beer, cider and food. For the last night of our stay we picked up pizza from the Saw Tooth Roadhouse down the road and it was delicious!

The house was super secluded and somewhat hard to find via GPS. The email that Vacasa sent with specific driving instructions was VERY helpful. The check in/out process was easy, the house was SUPER clean and spacious, the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, knives, Tupperware and cookware (I'd suggest adding one big pot for larger groups), the pool table and huge TV's were awesome and access to Wifi was a bonus - especially for our family who enjoyed streaming March Madness all week! The jetted tub was great after a long day in the snow, the washer/dryer on the main floor was super convenient and the gas grill on the deck was perfect!

Our stay almost seemed too good to be true! We have and will continue to recommend Svendsen Lodge to our friends and relatives and my family will be back for sure!
Eric L. Mar 2016
This is a great house with a great location. I have stayed in a lot of rental houses and this is one of the best values I can remember. Everything is very clean and new and the kitchen has a ton of stuff. We could ski/board during the day and head to Hood River breweries at night. If you are looking for a place with good access to both Hood River and Mt Hood, this house should definitely be on your short list. I would definitely return and recommend it highly.
Becca R. Mar 2016
Your cabin was beautiful and just what we were looking for! We especially enjoyed the fire place and the pool table. Thank you so much for letting us rent your place! We look forward to renting it in the future!
Jennie L. Feb 2016
It was very nice and spacious cabin and I definitely would use it again!
Dolly L. Jan 2016
This was our kids Christmas present, a weekend away to play in the snow. The kids a had a great time and all had their own space. There were plenty of dishes for cooking. The appliances were top notch! Overall a great experience! If you have small children bring toys!
Chris T. Jan 2016
I spent New Years weekend at the Svendsen Lodge with my family/friends and we had a terrific time! The house is beautiful with a large, open floor plan. Nice TV's, new appliances, and great amenities made for an absolutely wonderful and relaxing weekend. Would definitely stay here again!
