This house was perfect for our family reunion with 14 of us and easily accommodated us. Was very relaxing stay by the river and loved using the hot tub. We all had a great time!

We loved staying in a Timberline Rim vacation rental; it’s a lovely community. The enforced 10pm quiet hours were really nice for our family as we loved sleeping with the windows open being able to hear the Sandy River. The house has an amazing view of the river from the main room & deck. It looks like they recently added a gas grill which was great for grilling. The baby gate & dog bowls were a nice touch as well.

This house is beautiful inside. Not so much outside 😬 but the inside is so modern beautiful furniture. Has everything you need. No bbq grill outside you have to bring your own:( but I would recommend this house. Kids loved it, we as parents enjoyed our stay.

We loved the roominess of this house. The neighbors were warm and friendly especially when they realized we would not be stuffing the house with party people every night. The mattress in every room was amazing! Wish there were more instructions on how to work the TV downstairs. Need fire place tools and firewood if you plan to have a fire. Also need more instruction on how to operate the thermostats. We figured it out but slept cold the figured it out on second day. Great house! Would rent again.
Manager response:
Thank you for providing feedback, Kathleen! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate you bringing these items to our attention, and we'll be sure to add directions for both the tv and thermostats and look into adding fireplace tools. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

This house has a spectacular setting. But, in trade for the river views, expect a very dirty house in need of major maintenance and repairs. We found dirty utensils in kitchen drawers, cabinets pulls so sticky our fingers stuck to them, large hairballs on the floors, 2 mugs of old hot chocolate with a layer of mold on top in the kitchen. There was a hide-a-bed broken beyond use and had dirty sheets on it. The hot tub did not work. There were 2 large slabs of tile leaning against deck railing which if they fell, would have seriously injured a pet or child. A toilet lid which slid dangerously because of broken/loose bolts. There were wet mildewed laundry in the washer, dry linens in dryer and dirty laundry on the floor. We had to do this laundry just to have towels to use. The drain tube in the frig was plugged causing food on two shelves to be ruined. Other reviews written just a month ago, left glowing reports. I can only assume those reviews were bogus because I have photographic evidence proving this house is an absolute disaster.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Gayl. We are disappointed to read you were so dissatisfied with your experience. This home is new and was just recently deep cleaned. The couch is being replaced, the tile slabs have been removed, the toilet lid has been repaired, and the fridge was found fine upon inspection. We do wish you had called regarding the hot tub during your stay so we could have assisted you; we were unable to find any issues with it after receiving your review. We hope the compensation offered shows our desire to care for our guests. We hope to see you again!

This house is one of the nicest I've stayed in as far as vacation rentals goes. The space is exceptionally clean with what appears to be new furniture. The beds are firm but very comfortable and also appear new. We slept great and felt refreshed by the surroundings and hot tub. (There is also a rushing stream through the backyard that is wonderful to watch over morning coffee!) Staying here was truly a vacation.

Had a great stay at the Riverbank Escape. We found everything we needed at this large and comfortable house. Nice hot tub and beds were better than we have at home. We'll be back

The view was beautiful
Thomas P. Dec 2019
We love all the bedrooms; great for our adult kids and grandkids. The kitchen and dining area is open with the river view providing a nice focal point.

What a fun adventure house! We all enjoyed our privacy with rooms both upstairs and down. Everyone had a great night's sleep in really comfortable beds. The drive from downtown Portland took us a few hours, only because we stopped to enjoy some dinner in Rhododendron. When we got to the the house we enjoyed a glass of wine while sitting in the hot tub, listening to the sound of the river rushing by just beyond bank of the back yard. We got up the following day to drive about a half hour up to the snow, to enjoy a day of skiing. This house is so conveniently located. We were able to leave Portland after work, enjoy some fun in Rhododendron and then spend the next day skiing on Mt. Hood. We will definitely be staying here again with our family.

Peaceful riverbank setting with all you need.
