Forest view home w/ private hot tub, firepit, & shared pool - dogs welcome!

Find whimsical style in the woodlands of Rhododendron at this three-bedroom home, a colorful, contemporary escape with a private hot tub and firepit, shared seasonal pool, dog-friendly accommodations, and easy access to the countless beauties of Mt. Hood.

This tree-lined lodge is wonderfully secluded a few blocks north of the Sandy River, four miles from the center of Rhododendron. Spend summer mornings golfing at the Resort at the Mountain (four miles south) or setting off from the Ramona Falls Trailhead (five miles east), and find abundant winter thrills on the slopes of Mt. Hood Skibowl (13 miles east), Timberline Lodge and Ski Area (20 miles east), and Mt. Hood Meadows (24 miles east).

Whether you're hiking Paradise Park with friends or enjoying a relaxing winter weekend with your kids, you'll be treated to gorgeous forest views through the living room's wall of windows. Set up a board game on the rug or the coffee table, curl up with a good book or browse the free WiFi, and choose a cable, DVD, or Netflix favorite to watch on the flatscreen TV.

Grind your own coffee beans from Mt. Hood Roasters each morning, and leave the breakfast plates in the dishwasher as you leash up your dog for a walk. When the summer sun is shining, you can bask in the comfort of central AC, play cards at the table on the deck, and light the gas grill for al fresco lunches in the shade. Unwind each evening by soaking in the private hot tub, swimming in the seasonal shared pool, and circling around the firepit for ghost stories and s'mores.

Discover the beauty that awaits on the slopes of Mt. Hood - begin planning your Rhododendron vacation today!

We really enjoyed our stay here! It's impeccably decorated, the kitchen is small but quite functional (except they really need to buy more glasses. There was literally only TWO glasses that weren't plastic), and the hot tub was lovely. We'd recommend it!
Manager response:
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Our property manager has restocked the kitchen with juice, water, and wine glasses. Thank you!

My family and I love SnoCap Lodge and the surrounding area. SnoCap Lodge is secluded on a quiet street. There are neighbors, but we feel very secluded back in the woods. We love the hot tub. Trillium, Frog, and Little Crater Lake are not a far drive, as well as Timberline Lodge. You really get the Christmas season feel that time of year, but come prepared for snow. We enjoying spending our vacations here. There is a grocery store and two restaurants very close by.

We had a great time exploring Mt. Hood and enjoyed our stay at Snocap lodge. Our son appreciated the toys and books. The kitchen was sufficiently equipt to make some quick meals.

This was a perfect getaway for my wife, our 3 year old and I. It was nicely located with shopping and restaurants nearby. We enjoyed Mt. Hood, Timberline and found Little Crater Lake as well. We would love to return. The hot tub was amazing and our son enjoyed the games. A very relaxing and peaceful place to be. Thank you!

We enjoyed this house.
Wish there was a wood burning fire place, hot pads for kitchen and a nonstick pan. Really cute usable kitchen. Would stay again.

We had a great stay at the SnoCap Lodge. Excellent accommodations for a larger group. Check in was effortless and the instructions provided for check out were very clear.

Loved that this cabin was nestled in the woods but still so close to Government Camp and Mt. Hood. The hot tub was a huge win with our kids! Definitely recommend!

The home is cozy, spacious, and well-equipped with everything we need and more! One of the most stressful things about vacationing with a toddler is not having all the things you need to take care of your child but this home had a play pen and a high chair and having those alone has allowed us to have a restful vacation. We loved the fully equipped kitchen and the selection of games and activities (hot tubbing, board games, movies), that kept us from getting bored in the mountains. Everything was easy to find and navigate. We are grateful to the owners and the staff at Vacasa for making sure this is a warm and welcoming home to all that enter. This is now our go-to home for a winter getaway.

Our two families stayed at SnoCap during a holiday ski vacation. We all enjoyed the floor plan, well-equipped kitchen and hot tub. The location was a perfect jumping off point for our mountain adventures.

Stayed over a week here and my family really enjoyed it. There was an issue with the heater but the Vacasa folks brought by several space heaters for the 1 night we were waiting for the heating company & we stayed cozy. The Vacasa person that helped us was Chris and he was awesome.

My wife used the crockpot for some yummy meals. The hot tub was awesome after a day on the mountain. A lot of tv's and space to play games/read kept us all occupied. This place is awesome and I'd be happy coming back.

great décor and plenty of sleeping options. Nice hot tub as well! We got moved to this house from another one due to feeling unsafe at the previous location. This home was great! So was the property manager Kris!

Enjoyed this place, took away a star because There’s no cell service, which I expected, but the only phone was dead when I arrived. This is the second place I’ve rented by vacasa where the phone was not working at places with no or limited reception. Also couldn’t figure out how to use some of the tv options and there weren’t directions, but that was a very minor inconvenience.

Nice location off the main road in Rhododendron but close enough to a few restaurants and grocery. The house had everything you need to make a short stay comfortable.

Big loft, very quiet and well appointed. Beautiful woods surrounding the house. Wonderful hiking nearby, great place to stay any time of the year.

SnoCap lodge is a great find! It’s tucked away in the woods outside of Rhododendron and about 30 min away from the ski resorts. It’s a very large updated lodge with a wrap around deck that has a hot tub and grill and fire pit in the back yard. It easily sleeps 8 people and all the beds were very comfortable and warm. There’s a large flat screen tv with Netflix and the WiFi was great. We didn’t have reception at the location. We will definitely stay here again!
