Bask in the forest beauty of this two-bedroom Rhododendron home, a stylish and comfortable mountain retreat with an outdoor deck and firepit, and views of the surrounding woodlands.
An ideal escape for small families, groups of friends, and outdoor enthusiasts in every season, this single-level home sits in a wooded neighborhood just four miles from central Rhododendron. You'll be four miles from the Resort at the Mountain, 13 miles west of Mt. Hood Skibowl, 20 miles from Timberline Lodge and Ski Area, and 24 miles from the slopes of Mt. Hood Meadows. And the national forest is just two miles away up Lolo Pass Road.
With exposed cedar log walls and elements of Scandinavian design, the living space is a wonderful blend of style and comfort. Come home from an afternoon hike to Ramona Falls to warm your feet by the wood stove, recline on the L-shaped sofa, and keep an eye on the local wildlife through the wall of windows.
The spacious kitchen is well-equipped for baking, cooking delicious family dinners, and hosting special occasion celebrations. In the morning, grind your own coffee beans from Mt. Hood Roasters and unload the dishwasher as you set the table. Sit down to read the newspaper at the three-person bar counter, or enjoy a meal together around the dining room table for six.
When the autumn leaves begin to change, enjoy the view from a seat on the deck, which offers bench seating and a gas grill for afternoon barbecues. Once the temperatures drop, you can huddle with family and friends around the tree-lined firepit.
Back inside, you'll find a collection of books and board games, WiFi, and a flatscreen cable TV in the living room, allowing guests to relax and unwind after a day of skiing, hiking, golfing, or fishing.
With two bedrooms and one full bathroom, Black Lodge will comfortably accommodate as many as six guests. The cedar walls and ceilings continue in the cozy master bedroom, which offers a king-size bed and lush carpeting. The guest room is the perfect place for kids and friends to gather, as it features two charming sets of twin-over-full bunk beds.
The one bathroom has a spa bathtub/shower combination and a set of double vanities. Additional amenities include a private washer and dryer in the hallway, allowing guests to keep their outdoor clothes warm and fresh.
Whether you're planning a relaxing retreat or an adventure-filled weekend in the great outdoors, this rustic and unique Rhododendron escape will make you feel right at home. Book a tee time at the The Courses at the Resort at the Mountain, which offer 27 holes with lovely views of the Salmon River Valley, or venture out to explore the many lakes and hiking trails in the surrounding area.
And when the snow begins to fall each winter, you'll find a total of 65 runs, four lifts, and 300 inches of annual snowfall at Mt. Hood Skibowl. Timberline Lodge, which boasts the longest ski season in North America, also has a 3,690-foot vertical drop - which is more than any other resort in the Pacific Northwest.
