Location Location Location!!! This loft style, 2 story A-Frame, is set so far off the road that you feel like you are the only one of there. The close proximity to the Sandy River sounds so soothing!!! The Location of the hot tub is just perfect for a nightly dip and soak! There are so many towels, blankets, and pillows!!! If I was not so earth conscious, we could have used a new towel every time we needed one. Everything you need to cook is there!

Quiet peaceful rustic cabin on the river. Just what we needed to get away from suburbia and our stressful jobs. We came for a peaceful weekend and to rejuvenate. We got just that!!! Love love love

But what of this little town with the unique name? Local history has it that in 1891, one Mr. Alcorn was so impressed with the way the spring sunlight lit up the cottonwoods around the "Salmon" post office (named after the nearby river), he dubbed the place, "Brightwood." It stuck. More than a century later, this charming mountain town isn't much bigger. A Brightwood vacation rental in the beautiful Mt. Hood region is right near the confluence of the Sandy and Salmon Rivers, what's outside the little village accounts for much of the draw.

Reaching out like tendrils from just beyond the village are no less than 17 bike trails of varying lengths and difficulties, making Brightwood a cyclist's paradise. One of the most popular, the Sandy Ridge Trail, follows the Sandy River and meanders through a scenic wilderness, heavily populated with native trees and wildlife. You'll definitely want to pack your camera as well as your water bottle.

Sandwiched between two rivers, it's also no surprise that one of the town's most popular pastimes is fishing. Go out on your own on the Sandy River or book a fly fishing adventure with The Fly Fishing Shop in nearby Welches. Whether it's biking, hiking, or fishing, Brightwood has all the recreational perks one would expect to find in a mountain forest at an elevation of 1,164 feet. And after a day's adventure, make your way to the Brightwood Tavern for beer, food, and to hang out with the locals.

In winter, it's not far at all to many of the popular ski slopes that call the area around Mount Hood their home. Timberline Lodge, Mount Hood Skibowl, and Mount Hood Meadows are all within a 30 minute drive and snowshoeing and cross country skiing are even closer in the surrounding national forest back country.

Brightwood is one of the unincorporated communities in the Mount Hood Corridor and easily accessible via Oregon's I-84 east and Scenic Byway (Highway 26). Only about an hour east of Portland, it's just a short, scenic drive before you reach your charming Brightwood vacation rental in the Mt. Hood forest, where good times abound and the trees are ablaze with sunlight!
