Storybook Christmas
Dena W. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 5 days in Dec, 2017

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.

Home away from home
Monica M. from Kailua, HI recommends this property
Stayed 6 days in Dec, 2017

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!

A Thanksgiving to remember
Monika W. from St Augustine, FL recommends this property
Stayed 5 days in Nov, 2017

We had the best time at Forest View Lodge. The house was in great condition, the kitchen was fully stocked and we all had plenty of space to spread out. We loved going for walks in the area, hanging out in the hot tub and cooking delicious meals, including a Thanksgiving feast. The views from the house are unbeatable. Would definitely recommend this home!

Manager Response:

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving Weekend at the Forest View Lodge. We look forward to seeing you again next year.

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.

Glenn G. from Vancouver, WA recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Apr, 2017

From start to finish, our experience at the Forest View Lodge was great. The folks at Mt. Hood Vacation Rentals are tremendously helpful and thorough. Check in and check out was easy peasy. The accommodations were beyond our expectations. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend using Mt. Hood Vacation Rentals.

Manager Response:

YAY for your outstanding vacation at Forest View Lodge. We want your vacation to be memorable, relaxing and re-energizing. It is our pleasure to serve you and go beyond your expectations with service and accommodations. We are excited for your next visit!

Spring Break Trip
Karen M. from Southwick, MA recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Mar, 2017

We had a fantastic time at Forest View Lodge for a Spring Break getaway with our 2 college students, my sister and her 2 dogs. The location was perfect for those in our party who wanted to hit the slopes, and convenient to wineries, hikes, and exploring for those who don't ski/snowboard. The house was a perfect size and setup for our group, allowing for time together, as well as privacy. What a find!

Manager Response:

It is nice to hear that the Forest View Lodge worked out so well for your family gathering. With 3 levels and 3 living spaces (including the game room), not to mention the acreage outside, there is plenty of room for everyone. We look forward to your next visit.

Lovely Stay on Mt Hood
A Guest from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Jan, 2017

The home was in a great location for our girls weekend that included skiing, and snowshoeing. We loved the kitchen, living room and the bedroom set up. We will be back!

Manager Response:

So happy to hear you had a great girlfriend getaway. The Forest View Lodge is ideal for a summer adventure vacation, too with the Salmon River Trails, Hunchback Mountain Trail and Green Canyon Trail all just a couple of miles from the cabin. We look forward to your next visit.
