Cozy cabin right on the beautiful Sandy River with amazing deck & woodstove

Travel along the Mt. Hood Scenic Highway for a stay at this charming home right on the Sandy River. This designer-owned getaway is a real jewel in the woods, offering bright colors, heated tile floors in the bathroom, and a large deck overlooking the river.

Perfect for a couple seeking a romantic retreat, the cabin features tall ceilings, lots of windows, and a classic style in the living room. A cozy couch is positioned in front of the woodstove for warming up on chilly nights. There's also a flatscreen TV and free WiFi for your entertainment. A large deck has a grill for alfresco meals and scenic views of the Sandy River. Sit outside on the deck with your morning coffee or lay down a mat and do some yoga in the evenings.

The compact kitchen may have a small footprint but it's big in style, with granite countertops and everything you'll need to create delicious meals! Start the morning with hearty bowls of oatmeal and finish the day with baked salmon and broccoli for a special candlelight dinner. Although there's no dishwasher, you'll be able to wash and dry together, talking about the day's adventures and making vacation memories. When it's time for bed, you'll find a cuddly bed with a memory foam mattress.

Located about two miles from Welches, and 42 miles from Portland, this charming cabin in the woods is tucked under towering firs directly at the river's edge. Once you're ready to get out and about, you'll love the Mt. Hood location! This quiet neighborhood is steps away from the Wildwood Recreation Site, a 680-acre park with many trails, picnic areas, and old-growth forest surrounded by Mt. Hood National Forest. The main trails at this site - Cascade Streamwatch and The Wetlands - let hikers explore the area's natural stream and wetland ecosystems in a breathtaking setting.

Come winter, you'll have your pick of mountain resorts - the closest being Mt. Hood Skibowl at 13 miles away. Timberline Lodge is only a 30-minute drive, and Mt. Hood Meadows is a 45-minute drive northwest. Closer to home, there's snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the national forest lands. On those nights you don't feel like cooking, the Rendezvous Grill is about a mile down the road in Welches for fried Willapa Bay oysters and ribeye steak with red onion and bacon jam. But you may just be tempted to stay home most nights and enjoy sunset cookouts on the deck.
