Barlow Creekside Lodge 70796 E Barlow Trail, Rhododendron, OR 97049

Nestled in the trees right by the Sandy River, this Mt. Hood vacation rental offers peace and quiet near the Rhododendron. Spend a star-filled evening soaking in your private hot tub and listening to the sounds of Clear Creek running through the backyard. Perfect for a ski retreat, family vacation, or couples traveling together, this vacation home in the woods offers rustic, lodge decor but with modern amenities.

The cozy living area is equally suited for long conversations, relaxing in front of the stone-faced fireplace, or TV viewing. With cable and a DVD player, you'll have a lot of entertainment choices here, as well as WiFi. So throw another log on the fire and settle back on one of the leather sofas for a quiet night in.

When you want to fix a meal, the bright, spacious kitchen has all the appliances you'll need, including a dishwasher. There's even a coffee grinder for fresh beans in the morning. You can retreat to the sun room with your mug for a great view of the forest, or if it's nice outside, go out on the deck and the birds will provide a perfect soundtrack for the wonderful view.

The private deck also boasts a hot tub for leisurely soaks and a gas grill for outdoor summer barbecues. There's a picnic table right on the deck for al fresco dining, as well as a second deck right down by the river. Or head out to the outdoor fire pit after dinner for some late night s'mores.

The master bedroom is a rustic, lodge-like sanctuary with a pine log queen sized bed, plaid wallpaper, TV, and sliding glass doors leading out to the deck. A second bedroom has a lovely queen sized log bed, wainscoting, and elegant decorative touches. And for the kids, a third bedroom with two sets of twin bunk beds means they can have a slumber party every night. This home will sleep up to six guests and has two full bathrooms.

When you want a quiet spot to relax, play games, or read a book, the lower level den is just the spot. You'll have patio access and a bar to enjoy a glass or two of wine, while playing a game of cards. There's also a stereo with a CD player for listening to music.

This Mt. Hood vacation rental is only a short drive from the Mt. Hood Scenic Byway and restaurants like The Rendezvous and the ZigZag Inn. So, even though you do have your own kitchen, dining out is definitely an option during your stay! Also right nearby is golf at The Resort at the Mountain, hiking and biking trails, and rock climbing. In the immediate area, you can even make an appointment for a spa treatment like a river rock massage. Plan an outdoor adventure or get pampered - it's up to you.

Ski season is a popular time to visit, with Timberline Lodge, Mt. Hood Meadows, and Mt. Hood Skibowl all within a 24 mile drive. While the snow is on the ground, you can explore Rhododendron on snowshoes, cross-country skis, or by snowmobile. However you sightsee through the surrounding National Forest, you'll love coming back for a soak in the hot tub. And don't worry about keeping your clothes clean and dry out on your adventure - there's a washer and dryer back at your Barlow Creekside Lodge.

A peaceful escape to the mountains is within reach when you stay at this gorgeous Mt. Hood cabin rental. Enjoy river views, a comfortable rustic design, and great amenities whether you stay for a fun-filled weekend or more.

    Unlike many vacation rentals, this one felt like a home. The kitchen included everything you need to actually make a meal. The layout is open and rooms are large. Bedding and furniture were high quality. A library of DVDs and games meant that we didn't have to plan and pack these items for kids. Perhaps more private in winter than summer, but we would be happy to stay here again. Working with Vacasa was easy, staff friendly and overall seem to care about guests' experience

    I'm a big fan of efficiency, and this group has it. The location was simply gorgeous, well cared for, and ready upon arrival. The staff used e-mail as primary dialogue, but numbers were included if you wanted to speak to a live body.

    The in/out process was seamless, and I like the idea of using/leaving "staples". For example, there was a bit of coffee leftover from a prior guest. In similar fashion, we left some groceries that we purchased for the next group.

    I would highly recommend this team, this location, this property...you will not be disappointed!

    We stayed here the final weekend of our week long Oregon road trip. It was a great property to finish out the trip. The house has lots of space and is incredibly well stocked with games, toys and books. As a parent of an 8 year old and a 4 year old, I loved that the creek was easily accessible down a path without being a *too* accessible and a safety risk. The boys loved playing at the creek. Although there is another house on the other side of the creek, the property is so well covered in trees that you have a significant amount of privacy and really don't even notice the other property. Lots of decks and outdoor space. Zig Zag Inn is right across the highway with amazing pizza and Mountain Roasters is just up the highway with great lattes and chocolate chip cookies. Also enjoyed Mt Hood Brewing Company a little further up the road. It would have been nice to have a list of recommended hikes handy at the house, but I used the All Trails app and found a great hike around Trillium Lake. Ranger Station is just across the highway to buy the pass and ask any questions. Once minor glitch was that we couldn't get the interior door to the sunroom to open, but there was so much space in the house, it really wasn't an issue. Overall, a really lovely weekend and I would highly recommend the property.

    My friends and I are international college students and we decided spent two days on a trip in mt hood area. We had a really good time in this house. It looks old outside but inside of house is really clean and well decorated. My friends love the style especially those cute bears decoration. The location of this house is also very good and it has a really pretty view with rivers and forests. And It only takes 30mins drive to mt hood meadows ski resort from this house. If you are trying to plan a visit in mt hood area with family or friends, this house is highly recommended to stay.

    This is a lovely cabin with a great location. The kids really enjoyed the bunk bed room and it was nice to have two separate living room areas for us to spread out. We stayed here right after Christmas when the cabin was in high demand. We were unable to use the hot tub because they "ran out" of chemicals to clean it with and it was cloudy and smelly. This was very disappointing because it was a large factor in us choosing this house. Nothing better than a hot tub in the woods after a day on the slopes... also there is no slow cooker (as stated in the kitchen appliance description) so don't bring food expecting one!

    House was clean, basement was a great space for teenagers (or younger kids). It was more private than we expected which was nice. Very well stocked with amenities. We had no cell service at the house, but they had wireless internet which we had no problems with. Grocery store was a short easy drive away. Liked the proximity to a ranger station which provided us with info on awesome trails/waterfalls we never would have known about - there are trails to falls about 5 miles down Lolo Pass that we loved (sorry don't remember the name).

    We were pleased with the location and facilities of the place. It is convenient to the main road but we were not bothered by road noise. The stream in the back is lovely and we enjoyed eating outside. Also loved the hot tub. The house is clean and well equipped. We were able to buy groceries and cook our meals in the kitchen. The Mt. Hood area is wonderful for hiking. Great experience for the five of us.
    Our only complaint was that it was a little warm and stuffy in the living room after a hot day. There was also a musty smell in the sunroom off the master bedroom and in the lower level. Otherwise, great place.

Very impressive master bedroom with big poster bed with ceiling fan. Went here with 3 girlfriends and had a blast relaxing in the hot tub and eating at the picnic bench down by the river. I would vacation in this home again and would recommend it for singles or family.

    We had a great time with 5 boys in the house, ages 8-16, including a French exchange student. They enjoyed the bunk beds and the games that were included with the house, as well as the hot tub. It was a nice space that offered good gathering areas as well as separation of space since the kids had their own floor. The creek rushing by and the large, old trees made us feel like we were so close to Oregon's natural wonders. A fun time was had by all in the charming home.

    We were lucky to stay in this cozy house on a weekend that saw almost a foot of snow. It was great to have a wood-burning stove and nice cozy beds to sleep in after a long day of skiing. While a bit finicky in terms of temperature, we had tons of fun in the hot tub as well!

Inside the beds are comfortable, there's a supply of board games as well as maps of the area if you feel like exploring. The house was a perfect fit for our annual "cousins camp" adventure. The ammenities; dishwasher, washer, dryer, wifi, etc. were an added bonus. The staff at Vacasa was informative and helpful. Overall we had a wonderful experience.

    We were very happy with the property, overall. The size was perfect for our party. Kichen facility was good enough to stay for severl nights. we definitely would like to come back. Just for your information, I would like to point out several things we noticed:
    - Drainer in the main bathroom needs to be cleaned
    - Hottub cleaner was not supplied
    - The lamp on the deck next to the tub was not working
    - It was very hard to open the main (upstairs) bathroom door
    - It was not very confy to have a carpet in the downstairs bathroom

    Thank you very much for supporting our vacation.

Lot of games and activities for the whole family. Very comfortable. Had a wonderful experience. The little kids LOVED the bears (stuffed teddy bears in the house)!
