This cozy, dog-friendly cabin in the foothills of Mt. Hood near Rhododendron is your next base camp for your northwest Oregon adventure. Updated by hand over the years, Alderwood offers a comfortable interior with solid pine wood walls and ceilings, a cast iron wood stove for warming up after a day in the snow, and relaxing views of the surrounding woods. Sip your morning coffee or enjoy a picnic on the spacious, forest-lined deck before retreating indoors to watch your favorite shows on the flatscreen TV.
You're in the foothills of the Cascades at the base of 11,000-foot, volcanic Mount Hood, so you're actually steps from hiking along the ZigZag River and a short drive from skiing the mountainside. There's a handful of restaurant options along the byway in Mt. Hood Village, Rhododendron, and Government Camp, or if you're up for an urban adventure, the city of Portland is 45 miles away.
