The Sharp Cabin 24700 E. Hemlock, Rhododendron, OR 97049

This cozy 1500 sq.ft. Mt. Hood vacation rental cabin awaits your next ski weekend, golf retreat, or fishing getaway! This charming vacation rental cabin offers the best possible combination of rustic mountain decor and modern comforts and conveniences, all with a fantastic location within easy walking distance of the ZigZag River in the Mt. Hood National Forest.

From its exposed timber beams and warm hardwood floors to its beautiful cozy quilts, this vacation rental cabin will make you feel instantly relaxed and at home on Mt. Hood. Despite its rustic style, the cabin has been recently renovated and features plenty of creature comforts such as soft sofas, flat-screen TVs, wireless Internet access, and a beautifully equipped kitchen. The shop is open for you to tune and store your mountain equipment and there's also a Ping-Pong table and basketball hoop inside so no matter the weather, Game On!

The living area is open and spacious, and comfortable Pendleton style Sofa and Chair with a large live edge coffee table ready for your card game with an old-fashioned wood stove and large HD flat-screen TV for extra-cozy movie nights. Through a wide open doorway is the newly remodeled kitchen, complete with gas range, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, waffle iron, mixer, coffeemaker, coffee grinder, crockpot and all the cookware, serving ware, and utensils needed to feed a hungry group of hikers or ski/boarders. The breakfast bar has two stools for a quick bite, and a dining table with pull out extendable leafs.

In warmer weather, head out to the wraparound deck perfect for unwinding after a great day on the mountain and have a barbecue on the gas grill. The ZigZag River flows through the quiet neighborhood, beckoning you to walk down to the banks and watch the water pass by.

In the evening, take your pick from three bedrooms. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a handsome queen bed with log-hewn frame. The second bedroom has a queen bed of its own. Downstairs, the third bedroom is a festive bunk room that younger guests will love!

The upstairs loft makes a great spot for playing games or catching up, with a comfortable sitting area and a dedicated game table set for checkers or chess. Leave your mark on the unique chalkboard wall, or settle into one of the little armchairs with a good book for a little alone time while the other guests socialize downstairs. There is also another HD flat screen with DVD in the loft.

This Mount Hood vacation rental home has one full bath with a shower/tub combo, and a mudroom with washer and dryer, making it easy to keep up with hiking clothes or ski gear. While there are neighbors nearby, the cabin is surrounded by pine trees so you'll be able to enjoy plenty of peace and quiet. Walk to the ZigZag River, or head up the mountain to access miles of hiking trails, mountain biking trails, fishing holes, and alpine lakes surrounded by wildflowers. In the winter, skiing and snowboarding is just ten miles away at Skibowl, with Timberline and Mt. Hood Meadows just a bit further on.

If you seek a cozy mountain getaway without compromising on comfort or convenience, look no further. The Sharp Cabin awaits your next Mt. Hood adventure!

    We enjoyed the quiet and peaceful location, and the proximity to Zigzag River was a lot of fun for both kids and grown ups. The house is awesome. Ping pong, hot tub, basketball hoop, lots of relaxing spaces outdoors, plenty of space inside for two families and lots of beds. The only drawback is that there's no bathroom upstairs. It was fine for us, but I wouldn't be able to bring my parents here I think. Just something to know about. One bathroom and two families brings everyone together!! :)

    I spent a couple days here with a friend to play in the snow. This is by far one of the better rentals I've stayed at in awhile. Comfortable, clean and well equipped. The kitchen and the equipment provided was all that I needed to make some nice very meals. Nothing was lacking. The hot tub was especially nice and it worked perfectly.

    The Sharp cabin was great. It was very well maintained and clean. The shop/garage was great fun for the kids with the ping pong table and basketball hoop. I was grateful the wood shed was stocked for the wood stove. The upstairs gets really warm when you keep the fire going all day, which was great because it was really cold and snowy during our stay. The river was really beautiful with all of the ice and snow. I'll definitely keep this cabin in mind for future stays.

    This cabin far exceeded our expectations and we enjoyed every minute. We enjoyed the wood burning fireplace, hot tub and playing hoops and HORSE in the shop. We spent the week after Christmas here, perfect location for our kids who snowboard... 15 minutes to Timberline. The cabin is completely stocked, especially the kitchen... so we needed nothing. We will definitely be back to this place.... we have talked about making this our annual cabin experience..... enjoyed the walks to the creek in the snow and the close proximity to the local hangout Skyway and the Moroccan coffees..... Thank you.....

    Our extended family (4 adults and three college students) spent four lovely days at this cabin. Very pleasant and well-appointed and in a lovely secluded location a short walk from the ZigZag river. The cabin is close to hiking trails. We enjoyed grilling and eating on the deck. and made good use of the spacious, well-appointed kitchen. The only glitch in our stay was access to the shop: the key didn't work and a replacement key didn't work either. (Shout out to the local rep Jules for responding promptly and delivering a replacement key though.) This did not lessen our enjoyment of the place since we were outside most of the time, but could affect visitors who planned to use the shop during inclement weather. Still, a great cabin and we had a lovely time.

    The sharp cabin is clean, quiet, lovely, and a perfect place for family time. Bunks for the kids, fireplace, hot tub, large garage for running around when it's pouring outside, games, a great kitchen for hosting meals, 3 minute walk to the river, a large porch for sitting and sipping coffee and hot chocolate, and close enough to snow.
    What a place! We will be back for sure!

    This cabin is the dream. An easy hour drive from Portland, but it feels much more removed! The setting is lovely - you do have neighbors but they are all adorable little cabins as well and plenty of trees create a barrier between properties. We could have stayed here for weeks and been perfectly content. Plenty of space, cozy couches, a great little wood fire stove (with some firewood provided)... it's hard not to feel at home. Our trip was seemless, we had everything we needed. :)

    Our kids all decided instead of presents they would like to learn to Snowboard this year. So we rented your cabin and took them to Timberline. We had such a great time. The house was so clean and beautiful, they all said they never wanted to leave. Our 4 year old hung his head when I said we had to leave that day. Thank you for all the great memories.

    The cabin is lovely and came with more amenities than we expected. The one disappointment we had was that we could not get the oven to work. The display showed "Power Failure" and none of the buttons we pushed would change anything. My niece called the phone number in the book and left a message but the call was not returned in time to cook the manicotti casserole we brought. Good thing we had plenty of other meals planned. We quickly fired up the BBQ and had burgers. This was a minor inconvenience and we didn't let it stop us from having a terrific time. I highly recommend this cabin and would stay here again.

    A great spot to get away and relax. It was so quiet and peaceful. The upstairs does get warm with the high temps we've been having, but the fans did help. Loved the neighbors golden retriever, he loved coming by to see our little dogs. The back deck was a great place to hangout in the evening to grill and have cocktails. Would love to spend a snowy winter weekend sometime.

    The cabin is awesome. Wonderful stay. The shop with bball and table tennis is perfect. The only thing I wish was different was more privacy. The neighbors behind the cabin are very close but the nice thing is it's another vacation rental so there's always a chance there won't be anyone there. All in all a great location and great cabin.

    We loved this place. Everything was super clean..which I appreciated. Everything you could think you would need is there.. all you need is food and paper products if you stay longer than a couple of nights. If you are parents whom are a bit on edge with a layout where you are upstairs, and the kids are downstairs, you may need to bring a door alarm. My husband and I were not comfortable with the layout. The front deck had two entries , and one of them was the kids bunk room. So, the kids stayed upstairs with us. If you have an autistic child, this place was great. Our son had so much to do and loved the hot tub and the upstairs. He was very content.

    We booked the Sharp Cabin for a weekend retreat at the mountain, hoping to get some skiing in! Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate with us. With consistent rain, we were held up in the cabin but still greatly enjoyed our time. The shop/game room was perfect for our three teenage boys to hang out and expend some energy and provided for some fun family competition. The board games and clean cozy house provided for the perfect afternoon relaxation.

    I was a little concerned about sharing one bathroom with seven people but it ended up not being a big deal at all.

    The house is beautiful and clean with updated appliances. The yard is good size but isn't fully fenced, just a note if you're bringing a dog.

    Overall, I would highly suggest the Sharp Cabin, it exceeded our every expectation and was the perfect family get-a-way.

    This home is so well set up for families. Basketball area was a major hit and floor plan layout lets you keep tabs on the kids while you cook/share a glass of wine in the kitchen.
    Only downside is the one bathroom, but this home is so well kept you will love it!!

    We enjoyed a comfy, relaxed weekend with our adult children to celebrate Christmas early. The rain poured, and wind blew, but we had a great family time inside. We appreciated even finding Christmas themed placemats for us to use, along with plush towels, lots of kitchen/cooking/baking supplies, and a good load of firewood to keep the home fires burning. (Unfortunately, lots of wind caused power flickers, which would turn off the oven [made meals a bit more of a challenge, dishwasher etc and made watching a Blu-ray movie together a bit frustrating. The fire dept came late as a power line came down 50 yards down the street-- and the power company was replacing a pole as we left on Sunday). We enjoyed fun in the sport room (hoops and ping pong) and wished the rain hadn't poured the WHOLE time, so we could have used the hot tub more easily. [No way to keep anything dry (towels) when all was being drenched]. The bunk room is fine for adults if you move the top mattresses (more like foam pads) down to double up on the bottom beds. Plan your shower schedule wisely or some will have cold ones in the one bathroom. People with doggies would probably love the place - complete with dog bed and helps/reminders to be responsible pet owners. Some previous visitors may not have read where animals should stay off furniture, beds? We did find some kibble evidence from previous pet bringers, but overall, the place is very clean and welcoming. We'd love to come again and stay longer, but would hope for less rain so we could better use the outside (hot tub) and check out the river trails. Vacasa was helpful in accommodating our needs.

    The cabin was roomy, homey, and comfy. It had so many convenient amenities. Furnishings and decorations were stylishly rustic. Kitchen was modern and had plenty of dishes and utensils. Loved the big screen TV. My son enjoyed the video games on the upstairs TV. The shop ping pong table and basketball court were also fun for our teenagers but there was a very mildewy smell in there. Another bathroom would have been nice and with no air conditioning, we spent a couple of hot nights especially in the upstairs area. Typically I understand that air conditioning is not an issue.

    The cabin was tucked away in the woods, a short drive from civilization. You could hear the roaring river at night, and the birds chirping in the morning. The river is only a short walk away. Snow covered hills for hiking, sledding, or tubing only a short drive away. The cabin itself was amazing. The decor definitely set the atmosphere and the wood stove kept everyone nice and toasty (sometimes a little too toasty!). The shop with basketball and ping pong was a lot of fun too! We are planning another trip here!

    I'd originally reserved a different house, but something went awry and Vacasa helped me find an alternate property and we ended up with this house for our weekend. Everyone was delighted by the property! The house is cute, comfortable, and clean. The kitchen is wonderful to cook in, the beds very comfortable, and the place was quiet - although a neighbor's house alarm went off around 2 a.m. and continued through 10 a.m. the first night.

    All in all, I would definitely look into renting this place again!

    The Petersen cabin is fabulous for a party of our size -- two families with two kids each. Only inconvenience was having just one bathroom, on the first floor. Kids loved the video game system, board game selection, fun play spaces and fabulous bunk bed set-up, but DVD collection had just a few kid-friendly movies. House was extremely comfortable, secure, warm and relaxing. Loved the decor and appreciated all the small touches for our comfort!

    Definately 5 stars for this cozy cabin! Our family has enjoyed two Thanksgiving holidays there! Dads took kids a short distance to snowboard, sled or tube while Mom's got Thanksgiving dinner ready. Kitchen is user friendly and well stocked with neccesary appliances, dishes and utensils. The living area is cozy and comfortable with warm, wood burning stove, large flat screen TV with DVD player for favorite movies. Kids have their own "bunk room" set up for any age. Two more bedrooms on second floor beckon with big fluffy beds to fall into after busy days of playing in the snow. Summer activites include a walk to the Zig Zag River to fish or short drive to the nearby golf course for a round or two of golf. Mt. Hood offers lots of summer activities, as well. We came back to the cabin after a day of relaxing and playing and enjoyed a BBQ on the covered porch. We love going to the Petersen Cabin and highly recommend it for a perfect "get-away".
