Cozy cabin right on the beautiful Sandy River with amazing deck & wood stove

Travel along the Mt. Hood Scenic Highway for a stay at this charming home right on the Sandy River. This designer-owned getaway is a real jewel in the woods with bright colors, heated bathroom floor tiles, and a large deck overlooking the river. Perfect for two seeking a romantic retreat, you'll find tall ceilings, lots of windows, and a classic style in the living room. A cozy couch is positioned in front of the wood stove for warming up on chilly nights and there's also a flatscreen TV and free WiFi. A large wooden deck has a grill for evenings preparing meals and dining al fresco, as well as offering scenic views of the Sandy River. Sit outside on the deck with your morning coffee or lay down a mat and do some yoga stretches in the evening.

The compact kitchen may have a small footprint, but it's big in style, with granite countertops and everything you'll need to create delicious vacation meals! Start the day with hearty bowls of oatmeal and finish the day with baked salmon and broccoli for a special candlelight dinner. And although there is no dishwasher, you'll be able to wash and dry together, talking about the day's adventures and making vacation memories. When it's time for bed, you'll find a cuddly bed with a memory foam mattress.

Located about two miles from Welches, and over 42 miles from Portland, this charming cabin in the woods is tucked under towering firs and directly on the Sandy River. Once you are ready to get out and about, you'll love the location of this Mt. Hood cabin! It's in a quiet neighborhood, steps away from the Wildwood Recreation Site, a 680-acre park with many trails, picnic areas, and old-growth forest surrounded by the Mount Hood National Forest. The main trails at this site - Cascade Streamwatch and The Wetlands trails let hikers explore the area's natural stream and wetland ecosystems in a breathtaking, scenic setting.

During winter, you'll have your pick of ski resorts - the closest being Mt. Hood Skibowl at 13 miles away, but Timberline is only a 30-minute drive, and Mt. Hood Meadows is a 45-minute drive northwest. Closer to home, there's snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the National Forest lands. On nights you don't feel like cooking, the Rendezvous Grill is about a mile down the road in Welches for fried Willapa Bay oysters and rib-eye steak with red onion and bacon jam. But you may just be tempted to stay home most nights and enjoy sunsets and cookouts out on the deck.
