Remember those bedtime stories your Mom and Dad read to you? There was always a cute little house where the woodsman lived. Well, this is it. Built in 1927, this historic Welchest vacation cabin is located on one-third of an acre in the towering cedars and firs of Mt. Hood; perfect for a weekend family outing, romantic getaway, or a week-long working vacation. Located just past the Resort at the Mountain golf course, The Cedars is far enough from the highway to hear only the sounds of the Salmon River and the wood stove. It is not too secluded, however, as it sits in the midst of a charming neighborhood by the river.

From its wood stove, brick fireplace, and knotted wood-panelled walls, Cedars Cabin is quintessential rustic. Ah, and that old woodsman never had a DVD and CD player, or an iPod dock. He certainly didn't have free WIFI. Settle in on the comfy couch, or take a seat on the back porch and listen to soothing sounds of the Sandy River rushing nearby. Little chilly? Just fire up the other wood stove right there on the porch, make yourself some hot coffee, and relax! You'll also find a collection of games and puzzles.

Nothing is quaint about Cedar's kitchen either. Newly remodeled, it is well-lit, well stocked, and waiting to match your culinary skills from porterhouse to pasta. There's lots of counter space as well for easy prep work, and a microwave for quick snacks. Enjoy your meals at the wooden table for four. Or, hop on the internet and check out the 13 eateries in the Welches area.

Cedars Cabin sleeps four. It has two bedrooms, one with a beautifully crafted door and great big windows with views of the surrounding forest. Both have queen beds with comforters and soft linens. There's one bathroom done in an unmistakably woodsy feel that would make the woodsman proud. Primary Heat source is a gas stove.

Mt. Hood is the perfect place to be in the winter. The Cedars is only a 15 minute drive from Government Camp, 19 miles to Timberline, and 24 miles to Mt. Hood Meadows. In summer, Cedars is just a 5 minute drive from the Salmon River where anglers, kayakers can test their mettle in the cool, rushing waters. Lots of hiking trails too. Wildwood National Forest, with its "Streamwatch" program is close by, not to mention the 31 other hiking trails in the Mount Hood Area.

Truly a quiet mountain getawayGuest: ndmom(Salem, OR)Date of Stay: 06/20/10 Review Submitted: 6/26/10 We had the most relaxing stay away from home at this cozy cabin. It's very clean and comfortable. We went on an easy hike around the Timothy Lake, had lunch at the Timberline Lodge, and then stop at the Trillium Lake. We thoroughly enjoyed the day. Next day we went to the Wildwood Recreation Site and we're so glad we did. It would also be a great place to visit with younger children. Thanks for sharing this wonderful cabin.

The Cedars Cabin on Mt. Hood- A Quiet Mountain GetawayGuest: Elizabeth,Barb and Morgan(Portland, OR)Date of Stay: 06/13/10 Review Submitted: 06/17/10 The cabin exceeded our expectations. Often one worries the 1st time you use a vacation rental. No worries folks! The minute we walked in the door we were at home in the country and well cared for. The living/dining room was well furnished with comfortable chairs and couch. The kitchen was beautiful, well stocked to do some fine cooking. Lots of good restaurants nearby. The beds were comfortable with comforters and soft linens. Everything was clean by ecofriendly products,so no odd smells! Looking for a cabin in the woods, this is it. Many activities close by or simply lounge. Enjoy!

Guest: Shannon61(Eugene, Oregon) Date of Stay: 01/17/10 Review Submitted: 01/17/10 We all thouroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin - including the fussy dog. She had no problem relaxing in front of the fire, hiking through the woods and snowshoeing up on the mountain where we could actually find snow this year. Very comfortable and well appointed. Thanks!

    I took my wife up to this cabin for her birthday, she said it was the best weekend of her life! Perfectly rural and secluded, but still just a short drive to thriftway in case you forgot something important. There are a couple of houses right next to the property but they appeared to be empty so we felt completely alone and comfortable. The interior is very cozy and well furnished, there are plenty of towels, kitchen supplies and everything that you might need. We planned to go for a hike but enjoyed the cabin so much that we never left! Peaceful is the perfect description of the cabins atmosphere. We were beyond satisfied with our stay and can't wait to come back!

    Thank you for a most enjoyable vacation at The Cedars in Welches! We were charmed by our cute little cabin. The solitude was delightful! We were on a romantic trip for our 20th wedding anniversary, and everything about our trip was perfect! The cabin is rustic, but charming - I chose it because it reminds me so much of Grandma and Grandpa's house, except for the modern conveniences of the hot tub (NICE!) and the DVD player, microwave, and Wi-Fi connection, of course. But the old wood burning stove, the knotty pine walls, the sleeping porch, the little creek out back, and the wonderful smells of a western forest - just like Grandma's! The location was perfect for our day trips. We found so much to do - a trip to Hood River, to the Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum, and watching the kite-surfers on the Columbia. A trip to Mount St. Helens in Washington - a day trip, but SO worth it! It is an awe-inspiring and fascinating place. We enjoyed shopping in Vancouver and Portland, and going to Mount Hood to see historic Timberline Lodge. But perhaps my favorite day trip was exploring the route of the Oregon Trail, and visiting historic sites such as the Barlow Trail, Tollgate, Laurel Hill, and Pioneer Woman's Grave. It was thrilling for me to walk in the ruts of the Oregon Trail, which had been traversed over 160 years ago by my own ancestors. There was so much to do along the Columbia Gorge and Mount Hood, and we agreed that another trip is warranted to experience it all. There are two restaurants worth mentioning - The Barlow Trail Roadhouse, for breakfast, and the Zigzag Inn, for dinner. Both these log cabin-style buildings were built by the same pioneer man. The food at both places was exceptional. The Zigzag Inn appears to specialize in pizza and from the smell and look of those pizzas, going back to try one is on my agenda for next trip. But we chose Prawn Fettuccini, and we were not disappointed! Phenomenal! We ate some of our meals at the cabin, and were pleased with how well supplied the little kitchen is. After long days exploring northern Oregon and southern Washington, we returned to The Cedars each night and relaxed with a movie and a glass of wine, then a late night dip in the hot tub. What a perfect place for a "second honeymoon" 20th anniversary trip. What will be our excuse to return next year? Maybe we don't need an excuse.... Thank you!

    As Midwesterners, my husband's only request was to get a cabin in the woods - and he was very satisfied with this vacation home. Our stay was great and we wish we had more time to explore the area.

    My one advice is if you can locate the fuse box first thing when you get there, it would alleviate some frustrations should the lights go out on you due to some outlets working too hard. But once that was figured out, we had no other issues. Some of the homes are closer than I'd prefer, but once you're inside, it's really quiet and you're in your own world. Finding the home was a bit of a challenge too as every street looks the same, but it's so beautiful in the neighborhood that we didn't mind. We stopped to take pictures of the trees and one of the neighbors asked if we needed help - so nice neighbors are a plus. Loved the convenience of the washer/dryer. Lastly, because people leave things they buy (detergent, seasonings, etc.), check out what's in stock before going grocery shopping.

    We spent a week in OR/WA on the coast and mountains and my daughter's two favorite memories were being on the beach and playing board games in the cabin (it rained most of the time we were there). So thank you for providing Yahtzee and Headbanz - and a plethora of movies. My favorite part? Hearing the rain on the roof - best.sleep.ever.

    First the good news: We liked the rustic, natural wood interior of the cabin. The location was great, close to hiking and still close to stores, restaurants.
    The bad: not having read all the reviews I didn't know the gas fireplace didn't work. A notice in the cabin could have saved me an hour trying to figure out what was going on with the heater and phone calls back and forth with Vacasa before informed they are waiting for a part. So we need heat: there is the wood stove and space heaters. No kindling and no axe and no paper to start a fire.
    The problem with the space heaters was to try to heat the whole house blew the circuits....did I mention the electrical panel was outside? Not fun at night.
    I really resent paying a $20 fee to maintain the hot tub when it was not maintained - it stunk. There was a box near the hot tub with a sign to add freshener after using - but of course it was empty.
    I tried calling Vacasa about these things but my calls kept dropping because of the remoteness of the cabin. So I gave up.
    When all the fees were added up we paid $454 for two nights. For that money I expect a lot more. Very, very disappointed.

    When we pulled up I thought we had been had. Looked rough from the outside. and were several more neighboring buildings than expected. Boy can looks be deceiving. We walked in and the place was perfect. all amenities that youd need (HOT TUB WAS GREAT) rustic, yet modern all in one breath.

    Was worried about a prior review about the main gas heating not working, and I couldnt tell you if it does or not, why? because when I built a fire in the wood stove, it kicked out more than enough heat to heat every room in the house. The gas heat is not needed I promise you.

    Everything worked, everything was clean, everything was more than expected.

    As we were leaving at the end of our vacation, I looked at the outside again, and realized. If the place would have looked different on the outside (maybe new paint) i would have been dissapointed. It fits, its quaint, its perfect. Thank you for allowing us to rent your home for the weekend.

    My son-in law had to spend 3-4 hours a nite tending to the fire . The gas fireplace did not work. The space heaters kept triping off the breakers so we couldn't keep all of them on nite. We woke up to the cold every morning .
    The throws and bedspreads were worn &
    dirty.
    The giant potholes in the driveway were
    Very difficult to avoid. Almost ruined exhaust from bottoming out.
    The hot tub kept blowing in cold water.
    I would not recommend this place to vacation.

    First of all, when we arrived the main heat source to the cabin was broken. The property manager came soon after we arrived and told us that was the case and that he had to order parts and they would not been in during our time. There was an original wood-burning stove that we had to use to heat the main part of the cabin. The manager brought us wood so we could do that. My husband had to constantly tend to the fire to keep the main part of the cabin warm.

    The 2 bedrooms came with electric space heaters that only kept the bedrooms warm….however, whenever you turned any extra lights it would blow a fuse…..We had to go out and switch the breaker over 50 times during our stay…..very inconvenient. If we wanted to camp we would have choose to do that, but we wanted to relax in a cozy cabin with our 2 children and that did not happen.
    This was the most disappointing vacation that we have spent as a family…We came to relax and we basically had to keep working on the cabin to make it “livable”.

    Also the fan to the stove did not work and we make chili one night and the fumes from the onions burned all of our eyes.
    …Also we ran out of toilet paper the morning before we left and could not find any in the entire cabin.

    Also the “road” (if you can call it that) to the cabin had pot holes that were so deep that they were like a small lake to get through because of the water and the cars could hardly get through without getting stuck.

    Very quiet and cozy - when it was nice out, we spent plenty of time out seeing the area and hiking; the one day it rained, we spent around the fireplaces and in the hot tub or laying around reading and watching movies. It felt very secluded while being just 5-10 min away from groceries, coffee, restaurants, and more.

    A nice out of the way location that has access to Portland, Mt. Hood, Columbia River Gorge all within an hour or so. Loved the remote feel but knowing neighbors are close by if needed. Cabin has all the basic necessities and it was nice to unplug from the tv (but still watch The Shining after a visit to Timberlake Lodge). Had a fantastic time!

    This is a great cabin with a lot of charm. I enjoyed the back porch and spent mornings drinking coffee and evenings drinking wine as I breathed in the fresh air. The cabin was well equipped and it was great having a washer and dryer. I think the mattresses could be more comfortable as well as the living room couch. Everything was clean although there was a bit of a musty smell and/or smell of urine when opening the cabin. After the doors and windows were open the air was better. If you want to stay in a rustic cabin with charm this is a great place, great location, and sweet cabin.

    This house has a very nice cozy feel to it. Nothing junky about this house and the remodeling. The furniture is all very comfortable, including the beds. The main room is good sized, larger than I expected. Lots of windows throughout. The kitchen is very well stocked, even had ground coffee. I'm not a crazy big-TV person, but the TV here is too small given the size of the room and the distance to the seating. Also a coffee table might have been nice. There are many board games to choose from, and a good selection of DVD's. Although there are other houses in front and on one size, there's just woods in the back, so you can sit on the back porch or be in the hot tub and not feel like anyone can see you. The hot tub is very big and nice, we used it lots. Note that there is a sizable hot tub cleaning fee that doesn't show up in the nightly rates, and I probably would have skipped this property if I had seen that from the beginning. Overall I thought the price was too high once all the cleaning fees are added in (stayed two nights), but I guess this is the market rate on Mt Hood. Also note that Welches is a good little trip from government camp. The directions to find the house need to be updated, they mention going past a bunch of yellow mail boxes and a red house I think, well there are some yellow newspaper boxes but I didn't notice them, and there is no red house to turn at, it must have been painted since then! So I drove right past it the first time, but just went in a loop.

    This is a nice cabin if you are looking for a rustic cabin experience. The hot tub is nice, the forest/creek behind the house is very private and large (enough room to throw a ball for our dog) and there is a nice DVD collection in there. We also hooked up Chromecast to the TV and were able to watch Netflix and sports through Xfinity using a laptop computer. The house has clearly had some room additions and some of the light switches are not in the room they are lighting. Once you get used to it, it is fine.
    The location can't be beat. We made it to Maupin for river rafting in 1hr 15 min, and played at the Ski Bowl adventure park only 15 minutes away. There were tons of trails and creek access, just make sure you buy a trail permit pass before going anywhere - once you get to the trail, it is at least a 30 minute round trip to go get a trail permit and get back to the trail.

    Overall a quiet, pleasant location with a nice porch to sit outside on and enjoy the surroundings (including the watery sounds of the nearby creek) and fresh air. Used the wood stove regularly and ate most of our meals on the porch.

    Big bonus was a very friendly and well behaved black dog who lives nearby and visited us frequently to have fun sessions of playing fetch.

    The hot tub is great for relaxing your sore muscles in after a hard day of hiking the spectacular trails in the area. We hope stay there again in the not too distant future.

    Very cute little cabin that had everything we expected. Went with a friend of mine and my dog. Not as secluded as it might appear, just fyi, but we didn't really care. The dogs around the neighborhood are very friendly. Temperatures were down into single digits in the evenings, and having all the fireplaces and space heaters going kept us warm enough. The hot water in the shower wasn't very hot which was the only downfall; I decided to wait until I got home to shower the last day. Otherwise, everything else was perfect. Thank you!

    The Cedars Cabin is a nice little getaway in the winter if you plan to do any skiing or snowshoeing, but also in the summer it would be quite nice as well because of its proximity to all the popular trails in the Mt. Hood area. It's also quite easy to get to from 26. The cabin itself is small but very cozy and charming; the fireplace and heating system are very good and keep the place nice and toasty. The hot tub, a wonderful perk, is in the back of the house so you have pretty decent privacy. The kitchen is stocked with pretty much anything you need as far as dishes and cookware is concerned and everything is in very good condition. There is a Thriftway grocery store very close by and Government Camp is just a few minutes away. The house is also stocked with board games and DVDs (although note there is no broadcast or cable television). Keep in mind that if you are seeking an extremely secluded cabin in the middle of the woods as the photos suggest, it is not quite that. You have neighbors, but you won't really see or hear them.

    We had a great weekend at the Cedars Cabin. I made the reservation assuming there would be more snow...but we were able to frolic in snow up by Timberline (thank you to the couple at the ski rental place down the street for the tip). We were able to hike some of the summer trails too so no loss on the outdoor experience. The cabin was a tad more rustic than I was expecting - but everything worked and the owner had labeled everything as to how to use it, so everything went smoothly for us. It was very cute and cabin-y which did add to the charming getaway feeling of our weekend. The hot tub was clean and hot, the dishes and linens were clean, and the owner provided some popcorn which was a nice touch. All in all, it was a good mountain weekend.

Loved the country cabin décor throughout and was pleasantly surprised by all the included amenities, especially in the well supplied kitchen. The sloping bathroom floor and other quirks of the old cabin just made it more charming and unique. Would love to stay here again sometime!

    Our only regret is we couldn't stay longer! There was so much to do in the area, we barely had time to take advantage of the cabin itself. The 4 of us (all adults) went hiking at Multnomah Falls and in the nearby Mount Hood wilderness, rafting on the Deschutes, had drinks at Timberline Lodge. It was lovely to be able to cook breakfast and dinner in the kitchen, which had everything we needed (except Tupperware for leftovers! We ended up buying Zip-lock bags). We bought groceries on our way (Safeway in Hood River) because we weren't sure what would be available nearby (or how expensive it would be), but the Thriftway up the street was very convenient, and even had decent wine! In the evenings, we loved relaxing in the hot tub after miles of hiking (though we were a bit concerned about bothering the nearby neighbors), and entertaining ourselves with the many books and games in the house. Didn't watch one second of television and that's how we like it! Though some of the movies were tempting - too bad the weather was perfect! We wish we'd had the time/energy to build a fire in the indoor or outdoor fireplace/wood stove - it was surprisingly cold on July mornings! Our last morning, we were wished farewell by a black-tailed deer in the back yard. Just a perfect sendoff. We would love to come back!

    Very happy; one tiny thing - the neighbors place to the north was a real eyesore and we had a bit of concern that their kid thought it was okay to visit us. I like kids but we have two dogs and we didn't want any interaction. He was a bit pesky when I told him he needed to go home.

    The cabin's interior is as lovely and cozy as described in the listing. It is clean and comfortable. It is not as private or remote as I thought it would be though, with houses right on top of each other. There was construction work being done within 100 feet of my bedroom at 7am. The kitchen is not as great as it sounds in the listing, although it is fully functional.

    It was disappointing to not have T.V. so we could watch the British Open. But the home is cute, the beds are comfortable and we enjoyed our stay.

    We stayed at the Welches Cabin for two nights with our two young children (2 and 7). We found the cabin to be everything we were looking for - and even more! The two bedrooms fit our family perfectly and the home contained lots of entertainment options from games and movies to the outdoor stove and natural surroundings. I was very impressed with how clean the cabin was! Being so deep in the woods you would expect to see lots of little critters or bugs around, but I didn't even see one spider web inside. We would definitely recommend this cabin and would stay here again ourselves!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Welches, and this cabin had a great, quiet outlook onto the creek and property. The kitchen was well stocked, the bed was comfortable, and everything was cozy, clean, and in good order. We were a little disappointed to see that we were expected to supply our own wood for the (much-touted) wood-burning stoves. The expectations for us to clean the cabin before we left, on top of what already felt like a high cleaning fee, seemed a bit much. Nevertheless, it was a great stay and we very much enjoyed daily relaxing walks around the neighborhood streets.

    My husband and I stayed in the Cedars for five nights and enjoyed every minute. We were in a stressful transition of moving and interviewing for jobs and this place had me relaxed as soon as I walked in the door. The kitchen is cute and had everything we needed to cook, the fireplaces made it cozy in the cool nights, great collection of movies and games/puzzles, and Internet to boot! Nice collection of hikes and community info. We loved it. FYI the Soup Spoon and Wraptitude are awesome places to eat lunch and breakfast (respectively).

    Wonderfully stocked little cabin, we felt right at home in this cozy little place! The small kitchen had everything we needed to cook, there were two nice beds, not too hard, not too soft, and plenty of room to stretch out. We've stayed in rentals that felt like rentals, but this felt like borrowing a vacation home from a friend! The games and videos were fun at night and there was plenty to do in the area during the day of course. Be aware thought that there is a very friendly neighborhood dog who also like to do a doo-doo in that back (cleaned it up twice). No biggy, just watch where you step! My son played catch with the dog, he was a nice added bonus for us! The people in Welches were very friendly in the shops, too, and we'd highly recommend the pizza place. ;)

    Clean, comfortable cabin. As another had mentioned it isn't as secluded as the photos make it appear but still quiet & private. Our 2 children thought it was great. Beats a hotel room, especially for a longer stay, plus the advantage of having a working kitchen

    I was impressed how all our needs were met. The notes around the house tell us how things worked, the expectations and where things were wonderful. The only thing that detracted from our stay was the remote for the TV would set off the smoke/gas alarm in the living. When we moved it to another part of the room it was fine. We really appreciated the cleanliness. We had a wonderful time.

    Wonderful stay, just me & my boyfriend. Loved the charm of this place. Yes, floors slope, that's what happens when you convert porches, very common in old houses (1927). Owners purchased adjoining lot, so nice woodsy feel and space to breathe! Neighbors near front of house not an issue because you're on the back deck, which faces trees and creek. Great wood burning fireplace on back deck, was so cozy! Gas stove AND wood burning stove inside. Had decent stereo & iPod dock. Lots of firewood available. Great location closer to Portland than beach. Thank you for accepting dogs, she LOVED it! Took long bath. No van fan in bathroom, just fyi. Kitchen great & well stocked. Only suggestions would be bring newspaper/kindling & mgmt might want to use double sided tape or rug mat because rugs do slip. Also, dvd remote didn't work, might need batteries. Very well managed with plenty of notes and information about local hikes. Tons of towels, large hot water heater. Two nights is not enough, check-

    I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with a fun trip away from the city for his 31st birthday. After looking on VRBO I came across this location and fell in love with the photos right away! Then I read the comments from other people and I was hooked. The place is just as wonderful as it appears! It's quaint, cozy decore and beautiful surroundings make this location the perfect get-a-way for any two couples (even some with some kids). There was fire wood at our disposal, along with many games and movies to choose from. I will come to this cabin again and would recommend it to anyone!

    My family totally enjoyed the cabin. The running creek behind the house was a peaceful sound early in the morning while having coffee on the back porch. The fireplace really added the feel of being in the middle of the woods. We had the pleasure of meeting all of the neighborhood dogs which would come over to play with us. I will definatly rent another home from Vacasa. They were very helpful.
