About this Vacation Rental
Forest View Lodge is a relaxed and comfortable 3-level log home on 2 1/2 private acres surrounded by national forest. Enjoy the view of the Huckleberry Wilderness and Salmon River Valley through the floor-to-ceiling windows in the vaulted great room or while you stroll around the property. The spacious kitchen in the great room includes all full-size appliances and everything you need to prepare a fabulous meal for your friends and family. Walk out to the wrap-around deck from the kitchen with your morning coffee and enjoy the sunny mountain and forest views.
With three living spaces - one on each level, there is plenty of room for everyone to have a good time enjoying a variety of activities. The main level great room includes over-sized, soft sofas and the woodstove creating a relaxing place to join your friends with a glass of wine and conversation. Downstairs, you will find the game room with a large screen TV, BlueRay DVD player and foos ball. The upstairs loft is a second area for watching TV or relaxing with a good book. With limited wifi & cell service, this is a great place to get away from it all.
The vaulted master suite is on the upper level and includes a king bed and large en suite bathroom with walk-in shower and jetted tub. Enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the afternoon on the private forest-viewing master suite balcony. On the lower level, there are 2 bedrooms, each with a queen bed, sharing a Jack-n-Jill bathroom with shower and tub enclosure. The kids' bunk room is on the main level with 2 bunk beds sleeping 4 kids. The 3rd full bathroom is also on the main level.
Walk out to the back deck from the lower level to soak in the private, outdoor hot tub and eat dinner on the picnic table next to the seasonal creek and pond. You will be captivated by the local deer family that wanders through the yard at dawn and dusk daily. The gas BBQ is located on the main level near the kitchen and dining room under the covered porch for your convenience. For the active members of your group, the basketball hoop is just next to the driveway. You will be just a couple of miles to the popular Salmon River Trails for hiking and running.

My family enjoyed a storybook 2017 Christmas in the beautiful Forest View Lodge. The house was perfect for our family of 7 adults, 4 kids, and a dog, spacious yet cozy, lots of places to gather yet have separate time when desired. The kitchen was perfect to work together to prepare meals and Christmas goodies. A well equipped kitchen with all the tools and plenty of dishes for setting a nice Christmas table. We were pleasantly surprised there was a small Christmas tree in the living room with white lights, so proceeded to decorate it with gingerbread people, strung cranberries, and homemade decorations (did I say storybook yet?). The nice selection of games and movies were a surprise also, we came with some favorites but were pleased to see there was many already available. The hot tub, of course, was wonderful, my grown kids enjoyed it on Christmas Eve while getting a fluffy white snow (did I say storybook yet?). Needless to say, a enjoyable and yes, storybook 2017 Christmas for my family. A special thanks to the MHVR staff, we had a heat issue and of course it was Christmas. Yet, they were very helpful in helping us figure out alternatives to stay warm (the wood stove and space heaters were lifesavers, not to mention those warm socks that Santa brought). There would be one thing I would caution guests about, the stairs (to the upstairs loft bedroom) have gaps (no risers) and the wood (log, beautiful) is a bit slick. We had a 20 month old and those stairs made us a bit nervous with this new walking little guy, just a note for people who might have little people.

My family and friends stayed for 6 days at the Forest View Lodge over the New Year holiday, and we had a blast. The lodge itself was more than we could have hoped for. It was big enough to accommodate all of the 11 guests, was very comfortable, and warm. It felt just like a home away from home. The hot tub was a necessity being that some of the group went snowboarding all day and needed the heat to relax their aching muscles. The location of the lodge was perfect for driving up to the Ski Bowl, Timberline, and Meadows. Only took 15 minutes to get to Ski Bowl!
We accidentally forgot an iPad, and some phone chargers. I called MHVR to let them now, and they were kind enough to mail everything back to my home in Hawaii. The girls at MHVR were very professional and friendly. They really made our experience at Forest View Lodge and Mt. Hood exceptional.
We would definitely want to stay here again during any season to explore what Mt. Hood has to offer. Can't wait to return!
