Adorable creekside home w/ updated amenities, deck, & gas grill!

About 42 miles from Portland, this home is located in Rhododendron at the foothills of Mt. Hood - Oregon's tallest mountain. You'll have Hackett Creek behind the house, a half acre of land for exploring, and a great location with amenities in nearby Welches and skiing about 26 miles away in Government Camp.

Inside the home, an open-concept living space provides a relaxing place to gather and enjoy time indoors. There's comfy furnishings, updated decor, and a flatscreen TV with Netflix and streaming apps for entertainment, along with WiFi to plan your next excursion.

The living space leads into the remodeled galley kitchen with an inviting, farmhouse-style dining space. There's a table with seating for four for casual meals, plus French doors lead out to the deck, where there's a gas grill for prepping delicious BBQ feasts. This home also boasts a separate non-attached game room on the creek, featuring a Ping-Pong table, blue tooth music box, darts, a hookey game, cards, and a tall table with bar stools.

The modern, fully equipped kitchen features updated cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and all the essentials - even a wine fridge and dishwasher! This home also has a private washer/dryer for your convenience.

With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, this home will accommodate up to eight guests. The first two bedrooms are on the main floor, along with a full bath - the first has a queen-size bed and the second has a double-size bed. Upstairs, there's a large bonus bedroom space with four twin-size beds and a full bathroom.

Spend your days in nature with the lush greenery and pine trees surrounding the home, and gaze out at the creek just behind the house. There's a firepit by the creek where you can warm up on chilly days and enjoy s'mores, plus a dining set on the deck for alfresco meals.

From hiking the nearby Ramona Falls Trail or Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness to skiing up at Mt. Hood in Government Camp, this home offers an array of outdoor activities year-round. There's fishing, rock climbing, biking, and more. Amenities and restaurants are a few miles away in downtown Rhododendron and Welches.

For a fun day trip, head into downtown Portland about 42 miles away. Whether you're looking for more hiking, delicious cuisine, or wine tasting, the city has plenty to offer. In the summer, Bull Run Lake and Lost Lake are about 32 miles away for a scenic day trip - these stunning lakes are nestled in the forest with Mt. Hood in the background.

Stayed 2 nights in Early August with our 5 children ages 1,3,11,12,20. Layout was perfect. Middle aged kids were so happy to find banana slugs by the creek. Smart tvs a huge plus for little ones. We were able to enjoy some hikes and waterfalls. Brightwood market was close for all the needed supplies. Ivy bear pizza was enjoyed by all. Excellent stay. I wish it was longer. So much to do and see.

We loved our time at this house. Very clean, spacious, and relaxing. The kids enjoyed the upstairs room, and we all loved the game room and backyard. The location was magical, and we had everything we needed to enjoy the time together as a family. Thanks!

If it were not for the misleading photos on how seculed and isolated, I would give this property 5 stars. The house itself was clean, awesome, tons of room and fun. Loved utilizing the fire pit! But it was smack dab in a fully developed neighborhood and on a busy road that casued lots of traffic noise. Not exactly serene. Also heard gunshots multiple times which is a little concerning only considering how close ALL these houses are! If I wpuld have known its location, I wouldnt have picked it. But it was still worth the stay.
Manager response:
We are sorry to read you were disappointed with the home's location. This home has half an acre to enjoy and backs up to Hackett Creek. We hope you were able to enjoy the beautiful outdoors that are so nearby!

Cute clean place in a great location. As long as you don’t mind having security camera’s at front and back doors, it’s great.
Keith S. Aug 2019
We loved the well-appointed kitchen with exceptional attention to detail. Plenty of essentials were provided for cleaning laundry and dishes.
Separate game room building was a bonus!
Plenty of room upstairs for the kids and tweens ( ages 8, 10, 11, 12) to hang out. Sleeps 4 in beds and there would be room for more to sleep in their own sleeping bags on the floor. The kids all have "two thumbs up" review of this house!
Lots of towels and washclothes provided were appreciated, as well!
We had 4 adult and 4 kids - plenty of space. Best place we have stayed!
Would definitely recommend this place and would come back!

The house was very clean and easy to find the driveway is easy to get in and out of though the house is on a semi busy street theres no night time trafic noise. The lock box was extremely difficult to open the code entered fine the little switch worked but the box had to be pryed open. The beds are not the greatest but they are sufficient. The bedding was fresh and appropriate for the season. The kitchen is well stocked with the basics however the non stick coating was flaking off of every pan. The knives were sharp. The water got very hot a plus in my opinion. The upstairs room was great for the kids they were very happy up there. The game roomis great. The back yard with the creek is very fun but i thought we would be able to cross the creek and hike around. You cannot it is all privately owned and the neighbors are right there over all a nice place well located there are a lot of fun things only a short drive away. We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend the house. If i wish theyd fix anything it would be the lock box and replace the pots and pans to something without a flaky coating.

We had a great time! Very clean, well equipped home in close proximity to so many fun outdoor activities in the Mount Hood area. We enjoyed cooking meals in the spacious kitchen and listening to the sound of the small creek out back as we sat around the fire pit. Nice place for a family vacation!
Kathleen W. Jul 2019
Perfectly lovely natural spot with a well-outfitted house. Great kitchen, bathrooms and sleeping quarters. Mild drawback in the low water pressure, but that didn’t impact how much we enjoyed this sweet house and location. Apparently it’s actually located on the original, historic Oregon Trail! I doubt you could find anything better overall.
Tammara J. Jun 2019
Beautiful space, great kitchen area, plenty of dishes and towels. We loved it.
Mary N. May 2019
What a lovely, relaxing home and yard - such a great place to stay for quiet, relaxation, and exploring all Mount Hood has to offer!
Prathap P. Apr 2019
Size of the home is quite big as compared to the pictures shown. Had a very good time!
Michael F. Feb 2019
The house has been modernized and is in a great location. Spacious and comfortable beds. I would gladly stay again.
Eric S. Nov 2018
Great cozy house, well equipped kitchen, plenty of room. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Only down side was that there is no water pressure at all.
Mary H. Sep 2018
This was a very clean property with lots of natural light. I loved the decor, although there were only 2 of us it would have been great for a family.
Sandra J. Sep 2018

Bronson B. Jul 2018
The house was perfect. Very clean and tidy! The back yard with the bridge and stream running through is was gorgeous. We plan on staying here again when we return to the area.
Brian I. Jul 2018
Lovely location, nice clean house, modern kitchen and baths, and quite. Everything we were looking for our weekend getaway. Will likely book again in the future.
Sheri N. Jun 2018
My friend and I take our children every year on a trip. This was our first trip to Mt. Hood and we had an amazing time. The house is a vacation in itself and our favorite house so far. The upstairs area has four twin beds, TV, video games, and a bathroom. The four older children were in heaven having their own space. Outside the attached game room offered ping pong and darts. The backyard had a creek to explore, beautiful bridges and forest, and a fire pit for roasting hot dogs and smores. The amazing kitchen allowed us to make all our own meals. The kids were having such a blast we had some much needed girl time to catch up!
Kelly A. Jun 2018
I’m so glad we picked this house. It’s in a great location - just an hour outside Portland. Close enough to all the sightseeing, but giving you the chance to relax. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances and spices. The layout of the house is great. It was very cute and comfortable. The backyard was the best part.
johanna m. Jun 2018
very clean and updated living space.
Pallav T. May 2018
It was extremely comfortable and we had a great time. Andrew, the area manager, went out of his way to ensure that we had a pleasant stay. Greatly appreciate that and hope to be back soon.
Jennifer P. May 2018
Great location for Mt. Hood and Columbia River Gorge. Perfect house for a family. All updated with a nice kitchen. Our boys loved the ping pong table. And the woods outside the house couldn’t be prettier.
Mark B. Apr 2018
We loved how nice it was deorated and it was very clean! We have seven young children and the room upstairs with four twin beds was perfect for them to spread out!
The kitchen was so spacious and bright and pretty. The creek through the backyard was so beautiful and peaceful! The kids played in it for hours!
Claudia A. Mar 2018
Very homey! There are plates, utensils, pans, washer & dryer, etc. The home looks very small from the outside, but it’s actually spacious. Our family very much enjoyed our stay and we plan to return!
Chiara D. Mar 2018
This rental was perfect for our relaxing weekend snowshoeing at Frog Lake. It had everything we needed and enough space for everyone.
Yen-Fu K. Mar 2018
It is a very clean and cozy house that I would recommend friends to stay here for Mt Hood ski trip.
Cory A. Jan 2018
Great house and location. Enjoyed the ping pong room as well as the surrounding outside area.
ALLAN C. Dec 2017

Nathan M. Dec 2017
We are very happy about our stay.
Peggy L. Nov 2017
Very welcoming home with lots of room, more space than anticipated. Nice furnishings and warm, open floorplan. Large kitchen with all appliances and necessities of a home kitchen - more provided than we expected. Loved the back area with gurgling stream and woodlands to explore. Bonus game room with deck and peaceful views. Close to trails, ski resorts and snow parks. Extended family of 4 adults & 3 toddlers had plenty of room to sleep and play. Look forward to another opportunity to stay here again.
Sonya P. Jul 2017
Lovely, large home nestled in the woods. Close to road, but backyard is peaceful with creek, bridge and awesome game room. House has lots of windows and is bright and welcoming. Well stocked. Wi-fi worked well. A bit off the beaten path so we had to drive everywhere, but the privacy is very nice.
Richard L. Jul 2017
This home was great for our family of 5! The decor is lovely and we had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. Our teenage girls loved having the upstairs room and bathroom to themselves and the downstairs rooms were perfect for my husband and me and our son. We had a great time playing ping pong and electronic darts in the game room and the backyard was a charming place to explore and relax. Lovely home in a beautiful area!
Crawford P. Jul 2017
Great little hide-a-way in the woods. Worth the little extra drive off the main highway.
Marci B. Jul 2017
Perfect place to relax. Beautiful trees surrounding comfortable clean home. Sound of creek running through adds to the experience.
Home very clean and updated.
Rebecca F. Jun 2017
Our extended family of 8 felt very comfortable and at home in this lovely clean well maintained home. We especially enjoyed the bonus room with the ping pong table. Would absolutely reserve the Barlow Bungalow again.
Johanna C. Feb 2017
This was a gorgeous house with lots of space. It was beautifully decorated, well stocked with everything you could need, incredibly clean and new, with a creek in the back.
Michael M. Jan 2017
The decor was comfortable, clean and inviting with lots of room for people. Really great rental and would definitely rent here again. Easy access to the ski resorts and great neighborhood.
