Stay with us at Rapid River Retreat
About this Vacation Rental
You will have a quiet, relaxing vacation at the Rapid River Retreat, one of our most popular vacation rentals. Sit by the Sandy River with your morning coffee or a glass of wine in the afternoon and see and hear the Sandy River rushing by. With the west-facing backyard, you will soak in lots of afternoon sunshine while grilling dinner on the Weber gas BBQ. After dinner roast marshmallows and tell tall tales gathered around the firepit. The private, outdoor hot tub next to the river will cap off a day of fun and an evening of relaxation.
The vaulted great room is perfect for a gathering of friends and family who like to cook with the spacious open kitchen and second prep area with its own sink. You can sit around the large dining table for dinner and enjoy the river and mountain views through the floor-to-ceiling picture windows. The wood-burning fireplace warms the home and adds to the mountain lodge ambiance.
This home is perfectly suited for three couples or a small family with three bedrooms (1 king, 2 queens) and two full bathrooms. However, for groups up to 10 guests, there are 2 sofa beds. Each bedroom looks out over the Sandy River and the Cascade foothills in the background adding to the relaxing atmosphere.
The kids will love adventuring in the forest surrounding the Rapid River Retreat as well as finding fun places to explore throughout the Villages of Mt Hood. Your dog will be happy that you brought him along on this getaway retreat with the river to play in and the gated, dead-end road for taking long walks. The national forest just across the street from the cabin is a perfect place for your dog to explore and run.

Rapid RIver Retreat has probably the most amazing back yard of any cabin I've ever rented (and I've rented a lot). Be aware that there is a long narrow road that you have to drive in order to get there, but it's worth it for the gorgeous, relaxing view. My mom and I loved sitting outside and watching the river. So peaceful and beautiful.
The inside is gorgeous also, big open floor-plan and great kitchen!
We had a couple of small issues when we were there, but Faye from the rental office was awesome - responded quickly and was very helpful in getting them sorted out. Thanks again!
We agree about the view in the backyard of the Rapid River Retreat. It is pretty nice from the dining table inside, too. The plus with the road is that it is gated and dead-end, so there is very little traffic which keeps the setting peaceful.

The cabin is in a beautiful location! The rapid river flowing behind it is a sight to see in the morning and is very relaxing to look out on while enjoying the outdoor hot tub. The kitchen had everything you could ever imagine, the master bedroom was like a mini living room with a comfortable king bed and incredible views from the windows, and all the books for our guests to hang out was a treat. My only note to the owners are the conditions of the cabin: broken chair, broken door to one of the bedrooms, and a few gross discoveries like food build up, mysterious orange crunchy stuff in the closet corners, and sticky stains on the master end table. Those tiny details didn't take away any of the wonderful accommodations this cabin provided. Oh, and the fire wood was a big plus - we loved the fireplace!
We love the setting at the Rapid River Retreat, too. The river flowing by and the quiet dead-end road are so relaxing. We regret that you found a few things not up to our normal high standards. Thank you for the head's up; all of the maintenance items have been addressed. We look forward to your next visit.
