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.

Absolutely Wonderful!
A Guest from Huntington Beach, CA recommends this property
Stayed 3 days in May, 2017

The cabin and customer service far exceeded our expectation! The staff was very helpful and easy to work with. They made the entire process so seamless and let us enjoy our trip without any worries. The cabin itself was gorgeous and the grounds were stunning. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a mountain retreat.

Manager Response:

We love the peaceful setting at the Forest View Lodge; it is so quiet and pretty and the views are spectacular.

Nice stay
Bill W. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property
Stayed 6 days in May, 2017

The cabin was new and quaint. We had a nice stay with some livable issues.
The master bedroom had no closet space for guests. Very inconvenient due to
The fact we had hanging clothes and had to live out of our suitcase the whole time. My wife had to use a stool to get in bed and I just jumped up because it was so elevated. The shower in the master bath had 2 shower heads, but there wasn't enough pressure to operate one, much less two. The internet was hardly useable, kept going in and out. We weren't able to use hotspots because there wasn't any cell signal. The wood burning stove was worthless and too much trouble to load, and didn't put out much heat. We were there the first part of May and it got up to 90 degrees, No AC available. The TV setup was odd. They had Netflix and Amazon available but the internet was so bad you couldn't stream movies. You had to watch DVDs. Shops and restaurants close enough.

Manager Response:

We regret that the Forest View Lodge did not meet your expectations. This home is in a location where there is minimal cell service which is the case in many areas around Mt Hood. We appreciate your comments about the wifi and will look into it. Thank you for the head's up about the shower heads; we will remedy that situation as well. We do have several homes with cable TV, high speed Internet and good cell service, so be sure to mention that these things are important to you the next time you visit.
