The house was very updated & location was beautiful.
Mary L. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Sep, 2017

Beautiful setting & house. Drawback that it only has1 bathroom upstairs. We had a couple of families staying getting ready for wedding festivies & it was a little awkward having to share a bathroom. Also, we felt that it would have been nice to have coffee & sugar provided. We had to borrow from another house. Providing keys at the house in a lockbox situation would make it much more convenient than having to make trips to the rental office to pick them up & drop them off.

Manager Response:

We hope you had a great time at the wedding. We have electronic keypads at many of our homes, however, we are unable to get a strong enough signal at this home.

Beautiful Location
James H. from Lynnwood, WA recommends this property
Stayed 3 days in Aug, 2017

Beautiful location and the house is very private and very spacious and comfortable. There were only a few little things that were frustrating. The coffee machine was broken, the dishwasher was not secure and would fall forward when trying to load it, and the wifi was terrible and kept dropping out. A few small things but when you are paying this much its nice to feel like the house is really well maintained.

Manager Response:

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay along the river in this quiet vacation home. Thank you for letting us know about the coffee maker and the dishwasher. Unfortunately, the wifi service in our area can be touchy. We wish we had better and more consistent service here, too.

Amazing location
Michael B. from Pasadena, CA recommends this property
Stayed 5 days in May, 2017

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!

Manager Response:

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.

Rapid River Retreat Review
A Guest from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Jan, 2017

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!

Manager Response:

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.

Family Getaway
A Guest from Kaneohe, HI recommends this property
Stayed 5 days in Dec, 2016

Three generations enjoyed this home with spectacular river view and easy access to trails and snowboarding. Everyone gathered in the evening by the fireplace to tell stories of their day's adventures.

Manager Response:

This sounds like the perfect Holiday gathering with your family at the Rapid River Retreat. We look forward to seeing you again to enjoy more adventures at Mt Hood and create more stories to share.

Right on the river!
Elizabeth A N. from Eugene, OR recommends this property
Stayed 3 days in Sep, 2016

We loved this house and it's location just feet away from the Sandy River. You have tons of privacy in a gated community and the forest is just across the road. We loved opening the doors and windows to listen to the water and wind in the trees. The kitchen is well stocked and designed for efficient cooking with everything in reach. But we did have a hard time figuring out the coffee maker - an instruction manual would have been helpful. Two nice bathrooms with hair dryers and lots of towels. The master bedroom was spacious with big windows and a skylight. The other two bedrooms were small and maneuvering in them was impeded by the large timber side rails (we suggest keeping the headboard and replacing the frame with a normal bed frame). We loved the large windows facing the river but the flat screen tv was small and living room sectional not made for anyone with back problems. And there weren't any foot stools so reclining was hard. As always Mt. Hood Rentals was wonderful, and we greatly appreciate their dog friendly attitude with treats, a leash, sheet and poop bags. The home was clean and well cared for. This was a great experience and we will definitely be back!

Manager Response:

Thank you for your repeated visits to Mt Hood Vacation Rentals. The Rapid River Retreat is one of our favorite dog-friendly homes with the quiet and gated dead-end street for walks and the river in the backyard. We look forward to seeing you again.

Memorial Day Weekend 2016
Mitch A. from Vancouver, WA recommends this property
Stayed 3 days in May, 2016

We are frequent vacation renter to the Mt. Hood and other nearby properties. Although the house is situated within slightly congested area, neighbors are spaced well with no interaction. River views and ambiance are excellent. Bedding and furniture are quality. We felt the kitchen and bath could have been better equipped with basics (salt/pepper/napkins/cooking oils and hotel size shampoo/body wash/lotion). Overall, an excellent experience with the hospitality team responding immediately to a broken coffee grinder. Our biggest complaint was the serious lacking stereo system. I feel properties of this quality/$$$ should have minimum sound system with quality speakers and subwoofer. At present, the Walmart quality clock radio system has no modern input/USB/Mini-jack, bluetooth or other. While normally, we don't use television/entertainment system while enjoying the mountain, I would say this one was also below par with no DVD library, surround sound/etc… to be honest entire system out of place and precariously placed with a tripping hazard of spaghetti like power cords.

Rapid River Awesome Retreat
A Guest from Fairview, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Jan, 2016

The house is perfectly secluded along the Zig Zag river. Great open space for our large group to enjoy ourselves and relax for the weekend. Great kitchen space with every type of appliance and dish ware needed. The fireplace was cozy for the winter weather. And the hot tub was the finishing touch after a day of snowshoeing! I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Manager Response:

The Rapid River Retreat has one of our favorite vacation rental kitchens because it is so well-stocked for cooking up a feast during your friends' gathering at Mt Hood. We look forward to seeing you again.

Perfect spot
A Guest from Frisco, TX recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Sep, 2015

The location and view make this house the perfect spot for relaxing. The river flowing behind the house is mesmerizing. The check-in was easy, and the staff friendly and helpful. The only negative was it got a bit chilly in the house, but that was a minor issue. I wasn't prepared for the weather to be as cold as it was.

Manager Response:

We love the setting of the Rapid River Retreat, too. Thank you for the head's up about the thermostat; we will have that looked at.

Paradise
Judith D. from Gresham, OR recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Aug, 2015

This house is beautiful. The location is stunning and peaceful. We found our stay to be peaceful and replenishing. Really our favorite vacation rental so far.

Labeling the many light switches according to which lights they operated would be helpful. The toilet in the upstairs bathroom needed to have been cleaned more thoroughly (ring around the toilet), before our arrival. These are minor issues though.

O'Neills Stay 8/13 & 8/14
A Guest from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Aug, 2015

I felt that we had a great experience. I would have to say however, that I sure wish the check out time was a little later, since we stayed for only 2 nights. We checked in around 4:30 or 5pm on date of arrival and by the time we unpacked the car and got settled in, it was like 7pm (so pretty much just get the kids to bed at that time). We then had all day on Friday to hang out, but on Saturday morning we pretty much just woke up and cooked breakfast and then packed the car up for our departure to get out by 11am.

Also the website says secluded, but I felt we were extremely close to the neighbors on one side.

Rapid River Retreat
A Guest from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 3 days in Feb, 2015

Overall, a really great place. Open floor plan, lots of light, great kitchen. The view of the river from the house, the access to the river right outside your door, the sound of the river are what makes this place really special. We had a big group and there was space for everyone to hang out, eat, drink, hot tub, play games and more. Very grand feeling.

Areas to improve, and similar to other reviews, not super clean. The stairs had debris on them, the bathroom had two towels hanging on the door and some un-cleanliness feel to it. There was roof damage from a recent storm (it looked like) and the debris hadn't been picked up. I don't expect it to be repaired necessarily (not sure when it happened), but cleaning it up a little would've been nice.

Manager Response:

The setting at Rapid River Retreat cannot be beat; we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit. We apologize for the less than high standards in cleaning; that will be improved. The roof repair is finally happening in March; we had to wait for the insurance company to approve the repairs. The home was inspected and determined to be safe for occupancy.

We arrived after dark and could hear the river behind us. We were so surprised when we turned on the back porch lights and saw the beautiful river flowing.

Colin F. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Mar, 2014

Our rental experience was fantastic. A group of us were looking for a nice place for a ski trip but last minute our group downsized by half. Cari worked with us and got us a perfect house last minute with no trouble and she was flexible with getting payment from multiple guests. She was very helpful and professional. The house she recommended was perfect!! It was in great shape, right on the river, very clean, with a large hot tub,an open floor plan and plenty of room for our group! The house made the weekend!!!

Rapid River Resort/Feb 13-15
Dave N. from Cannon Beach, OR does not recommend this property
Stayed 3 days in Feb, 2014

The home was not as clean as we expected. It was obvious that furniture had not been moved when cleaned as there was debris under the living room furniture, as well as a half smoked marijuana cigarette on the fireplace mantel. A little frustration getting the wifi to work. The living room furniture layout just isn't very comfortable and the cluster of cords from the TV/electronics area is unsightly. The bedrooms are rather small and in my opinion, a sofa sleeper in the loft would make more sense than the game table. Overall, we still had a great time - enjoyed the hot tub.

A nice place that could use some TLC
Sam M. from Portland, OR does not recommend this property
Stayed 3 days in Feb, 2014

Overall this is a nice cabin, with some drawbacks.

The good:
- The view was fantastic
- The hot tub right on the river was amazing
- The cabin was very well stocked with supplies

The bad:
- There were dust bunnies and dog hair on the floor, and we made the mistake of moving the couch which revealed a lot more.
- The furniture could use some updating.
- The extra bedrooms are just big enough to fit the queen bed.
- The heat didn't work well, if at all. This became apparent on our last night when we ran out of firewood.

It's hard not to have a good time with wonderful friends and family and I don't regret our stay, but I think we will continue looking for a place to call our home away from home.

Ski Weekend
Sarah B. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Jan, 2014

Great time in the house. Everyone had a blast and enjoyed the space. Only a few things to note; no one mentioned wifi wasn't working and with limited recepetion, this caused problems for cell phones.. The power also went out- to be expected in the area during a storm, but that also ment no water as the well must have been on an electric pump. A fair warming should have been given. Other then that, it was a great weekend!

The Home made a Difference... it was a wonderful experience
Judy W. from Hillsboro, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Dec, 2013

Having a first pre-Christmas family getaway after 20 years, my husband and I who reside in the Phils. would like it to be perfect. Originally, we've planned to take the kids out from the City to experience the Mt. Hood snow adventure. We are all looking forward doing outside activities like tubing, sledging, skiing and site seeing. Our plans totally changed, instead we only spent half day Saturday outside at timberline and decided to be in the house the rest of the day and bonded with the kids and the grandkids. The ambiance of Rapid River House was very conducive for the family to spend close time together. We all felt very much at home, so much so that none of us wanted to leave. The "Home" became the highlight of our brief vacation. And we definitely plan to do it again. The place made it a difference, our vacation became more than we expected. To others if you rent this home, you will not be disappointed and pleasantly surprised.....We thank the Mt. Hoot Vacation Rental team, Mark and Cary for their great service and attention details. And lastly we would like to thank the owner in furnishing and decorating a beautiful home. From Judy and Steve

Dan C. from Oregon City, OR recommends this property

We had a great time. The house is right on the river and could be heard from every bedroom. The hot tub was clean as was the house. We had some friends from Nebraska come out and join us and they had a blast.
My wife and I would highly recommend the property to anyone looking for a relaxing, comfortable stay in a beautiful home right on a rushing river. Mt. Hood Vacation Rentals were very helpful and a real pleasure to deal with. We will be back!

Rapid River Mediocre
Tia Y. from Milwaukie, OR recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Jul, 2013

I've stayed at several Mount Hood Rentals and have rarely been disappointed. While the location of this property on the Sandy River is pretty incredible, the condition of the home itself left some things to be desired.
We reserved the house as a getaway when friends from Florida came visit. I was disappointed and a little embarrassed by the cleanliness of the house. Dust was pretty thick in some places and there were crumbs under furniture. We took the master bedroom and were most disappointed with a dark black ring of mildew in the walk-in shower. All of the cabinets and drawers in the kitchen were full, but some of what was inside looked like junk and some of it was broken. Some basic necessities for a trip to the mountains/river were missing like a simple filet knife for the trout we caught at the trout farm. Furthermore, the furniture seemed a little dingy and the phone rang a lot, which is something you don't want to hear on vacation.
The location is pristine, the hot tub sparkled, and we thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor fire pit.
But, for the amount we paid for this rental, we had higher expectations for what was inside the cabin.

The house and location are fantastic. Well stocked home, nice cabin decor, great hot tub next to the river, and great view of the river from every room in the house. As soon as we arrived I knew I would regret that we could only stay 2 nights, and I will definitely be back.

A Guest from Beaverton, OR recommends this property
Stayed 3 days in Jan, 2013

Great location right on the river. Nice large open floor plan for families. Should have been a little cleaner for our arrival. A few cobwebs hanging from lights and the downstairs toilet needed to be cleaned. Also do not expect to be able to fit an SUV with ski racks in the garage as it is too short! Not good planning for a ski vacation house. Other than a few things we had a very nice stay and our kids enjoyed the hot tub immensely

Thanksgiving at Rapid River
A Guest from Keizer, OR recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Nov, 2012

I was a little doubtful that the house would be as nice as others we rented from you because I knew it was in a neighborhood instead of secluded like others. The only house you can see is the property next door and the cabins across the river, however, even though this sound like a lot it actually was very nice. The house itself is beautiful. I have never seen a kitchen so stocked. This made Thanksgiving dinner very easy to do. The decor was amazing. As my husband said, everytime you looked you found something new. The addition of the new flat screen was also nice since we had guys looking forward to the civil war game. Overall we had a wonderful time and will probably rent Rapid River again in the future.

First visit at River Rapids
Krissy D. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Oct, 2012

We've stayed at a few Mt Hood Rentals and tried the River Rapid Retreat this time. We liked the space. The kitchen was fabulous, the upstairs was great and the hot tub was awesome.

There were a number of things that were not up to Mt Hood Rentals standards and that was disappointing. They were mostly little things, but added together it felt like MHR was slacking a bit.

So the management knows, I will mention some: please make sure the decks are scrubbed and not slippery and slimy from a build up of moss and leaves. We couldn't even walk on them which was disappointing. Also, there weren't enough cleaner salts for the hot tub, there were no memo pads near the phone, and there was no guest book to tell us what to do in town and the rules of the house. These were a few of the little things that added up. It was still a good visit and we would go back.

The beds and dining table were great, but the couches and chairs were not that comfortable. I find all the couches and chairs uncomfortable in most of these rentals. It is one of the most important things. I would prefer a good couch and chair to all the decor. I encourage the management to realize the importance of that. I had a bad back act up from the furniture which made the visit not as nice. Also, a rug in the living room would be nice.

Our first Mt. Hood weekend
Kannon M. from Enterprise, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Sep, 2012

The house was in a perfect location and we found it exactly as described. There were a couple of small issues not up to par, but nothing that would keep us from coming back. First, none of the outside lights worked, which made getting back a forth to the hot tub a challenge. Understandable because I'm sure the cleaner is only there in daylight hours. Secondly, we found the main living room/kitchen floor dirty. Nothing that a quick trip with the broom didn't fix, but for the money, not something we should have needed to do. Thirdly, we had to unload the dishwasher upon arrival. Again, not a deal breaker, but again, not something that you should have to do at $350 a night. The staff was great to deal with and the house fit our needs perfectly, so I can overlook those small details. I hope to be able to return soon.....

Remote enough but close, too
Jim W. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Feb, 2012

We had a great stay. Both my wife and I have been working our tails off for the last 3 months and so we definitely needed a break. While our stay was somewhat short, the place was perfect in that we felt that we could have some peace and quiet, alone in the woods yet at the same time, we were close enough to local restaurants and grocery stores that we didn't need to prepare heavily in order to pull it all off. It is also nice to be so close to skiing. We were at Timberline in 20 minutes. The setting is great. The rushing of the small river is perfect. The house is nice. Our 7 year old twins absolutely loved every single minute and want us to move there.

If the owners want to sell, let us know...

Had a very good time, but it looked like no had been in the house for some time. Had a bunch of dead bugs and the toiltes were slighty dirty.

Great escape!
A Guest from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Feb, 2011

The house was delightful and spacious with some truly cute and ridiculous decorating touches! The location was perfect - set back from any busy roads and right alongside the river. There was plenty of dishes and amenities ready to accommodate a large group. My one suggestion would be to fix the drawer with the trash bin. We had dogs and the drawer wouldn't stay shut. It would be easy to fix with a baby latch to make sure that it wasn't a constant concern.

Rapid River Retreat Stay
A Guest from Columbia, SC recommends this property
Stayed 3 days in Feb, 2011

First of all our service from Cari at Mt. Hood Vacation Rentals was superb. We felt very secure and confident that she would handle any problems that may come up. She was wonderful to work with. The Rapid River Retreat home was great - better than we expected. The pictures don't show its beauty. It was spotless and there were no odors. We loved listening to the rushing waters outside. The kitchen is so well stocked with spices, etc. The bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculate. The views were just beautiful. Great internet connection.We would love to return!

Beautiful home, needs attention to detail.
Maryann D. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Apr, 2010

While the house and location were beautiful and the amenities were great, we felt that the house should have been checked before our arrival as it was apparent that the house had not been attended to in quite some time. When we arrived, we noticed that the freezer door was partially open, and we had to spend an hour breaking off chunks of ice from the interior to get it to close properly. The cycle of defrosting/refreezing had also moved the coil on the ice dispenser so we were unable to use that. The grill ran out of propane and we were unable to find a replacement. Finally, several of the bedspreads had significant amounts of animal hair on them which was quite distasteful. I would suggest that the property manager should take the time to ensure that everything is stocked, functioning properly and thoroughly cleaned before the arrival of new guests.

Wonderful house in a beautiful setting!
Jean L. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Nov, 2009

Our family of 5 (with three young kids) stayed at Rapid River Retreat over Thanksgiving 2009. The reservation process was a breeze, the staff super friendly and helpful, the house beautiful and comfortable, the river view from the kitchen/eating area lovely, and proximity to skiing and sledding great. We prepared our TGiving meal at the house and found the kitchen to be very well stocked. This could not have been a better weekend for our family-the house was comfortable and made it very easy and fun to spend time together over the holiday.

Manager Response:

We are so happy to hear that your Thanksgiving was such a great family holiday for you this year. The Rapid River Retreat has one of our favorite kitchens and is ideal for foodies and people who like to cook.

Beautiful river setting. Very nice master bedroom and children's rooms. Very nice kitchen, great layout, great use of space...(dull knives) Great hot tub and wonderful landing with game table. We booked this property only because of the kindness of the management company and would only come back to them.

Last Minute Booking, First Class Customer Service and Accomidations. 5 STARS
A Guest from Oregon City, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Oct, 2009

I was attending the 2009 Search and Rescue Convention held on Mt Hood. With a last minute change in my schedule, the room I had was lost to another speaker. I contacted the folks as Mt Hood Vacation rentals. I found them to be extreamly helpful with last minute accomadations. To my surprise I arrived to find one of the truly most serene and enjoyable properties Ive been to. It was neat as a pin, the heat was on, The firewood stacked at the door. Couldnt of asked for anything more.

Call this company if you have a need for Accomidations on Mt Hood, and want first class customer service and housing.

Manager Response:

Wow, thanks for the wonderful compliments. We enjoyed our conversations with you, too. And tell your Search and Rescue friends that they are welcome to bring their search dogs to our rental homes.

A perfect mountain cabin beside rushing mountain stream. 'Cabin' may be misleading....was modern home with cathedral ceilings and gorgeous views of stream and rising hills in background. Outside hot tub perfect for occassional dips beside strem, yet private. 3 bedrooms, but perfect for romantic getaway for couple.

Upgrades needed
Kathleen C. from Gresham, OR recommends this property
Stayed 3 days in Mar, 2009

We love the location. The new decks and hot tub area is beautiful. The house needs a thorough deep cleaning around the edges of the room, dusting is needed everywhere. When we rented the first time, a few years back, the kitchen was well stocked with equipment. This time the knives were so dull as to be dangerous, there were few gourmet touches for serving etc.

We showed up a little early and was put off till 4pm or maybe a little after. First time I have ever been delayed so much in checking in.

Manager Response:

We will make every effort to check guests in early if the rental home is available. Unfortunately, the day of your arrival, the home was not available until your normal check in time of 4 PM. Hopefully, you enjoyed a restaurant, or shopping or a walk at Wildwood Park while you were waiting for the Rapid River Retreat to be ready for your arrival. Betsy
