Lovely stay
A Guest from Seattle, WA recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Nov, 2017

My friends and I rent houses for an annual friends-giving type event. This was our 8th or 9th year and this was one of my favorite houses. Really great layout for visiting with people. The kitchen and dining rooms are open, there's also two seating areas. We brought along two kids who loved the playscape. Rooms were all well appointed with plenty of blankets and towels. Kitchen came equipped with tons of pots, pans, and the like. Beautiful house. I loved that the entry was keyless and checkout didn't require going back to the rental office. More outdoor lighting near hot tub and providing some laundry detergent would have been great, but are such minor details. Overall, we loved it.

Little slice of heaven
Kelly B. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Sep, 2017

Roads End Lodge is just that, a little slice of heaven. It was like visiting an old friend as I had stayed at this property several times when it was Deer Island Chalet and having it back on the rental market is a real plus. The house has been remodeled inside and out, high-end appliances,large granite island, many pots and pans. The open floor plan, the eclectic furnishing and the homey feel is an easy sell. It rained most of the time we were there but nobody cared, we had deer in the yard eating everyday we were there. I am looking forward to going back soon.

Manager Response:

We are so happy to hear you love the Road's End Lodge. It is the perfect place to sit, gaze out the windows and watch mother nature all day long.

Should be renamed....
Kevin M. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2011

We did see the "obligatory" deer this time, just like last time. We think that Mt. Hood Vacation Rentals has a contract with the local deer population that they are required to send at least one representative to stroll past the cabin at least once per guest stay, and they did. We did however see more species of butterflies and moths than you could imagine. Our boys spent hours studying them. Therefor we vote the name be changed to Butterfly Island Chalet.

That said our 7 night stay was peaceful and enjoyable. We fished almost every day, hiked, made s'mores, and enjoyed this wonderful home.

We are sad it will be unavailable for a while due to renovation, and even sadder that it may be off the market as a rental for good. You can bet if it is ever available again, we will be back.

Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Manager Response:

Good News! This awesome cabin is once again available for your vacation with 2 more bedrooms, an added bathroom, a completely new and spacious kitchen, about 1000 sq feet addition and a new name, The Road's End Lodge.

Three days of heaven
Jonathan R. from Schenectady, NY recommends this property
Stayed 3 days in May, 2011

This was the best equipped and most organized vacation rental we have ever had. Every detail was attended to. The location surrounded by woods and a stream, the beautiful wrap around porch and And the artwork in the place were all amazing. The bed we slept in upstairs was very very comfortable. No complaints here....even the kitchen had every item we wanted. Five stars for sure.

One thing seriously wrong with this property......
Kevin M. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 3 days in Mar, 2011

We don't own it!
I hesitate to tell you how wonderful this property is because I want to be able to rent it whenever I want. If the secret gets out, then it is going to be filled up and we will have to spend weekends in a tent.
We have stayed at 5 of the properties offered by Mt Hood Vacation Rentals and this property is by far, hands down, our favorite. The location cannot be beat. Except for the odd hiker strolling by now and then, you feel very secluded. There is plenty of room for the kids and dog to play. Our dog was even greeted by the local "welcome wagon" pack from down the street. He enjoyed romping in the yard with them.
Thank you to the owners for sharing this wonderful place with our family.

What a vacation! What a home!
Johhny T. from recommends this property
Stayed 3 days in Mar, 2011

My wife and I stayed at Deer Island Chalet for a well needed getaway and we couldn't have been happier with the home and the location. It’s secluded and very peaceful with the sounds of the Salmon River that runs nearby.

We found the home to be very clean, comfortable and loaded with kitchenware. We built a fire in the woodstove immediately; there were plenty of firewood, kindling, and fire starters provided for our 3 nights.

When we weren't at SkiBowl or Timberline snowboarding, or on hike on the Wildwood Park trails that connect to the property, we spent time in the comfy chairs by the front windows reading and having coffee or in the hot tub relaxing while it snowed. The Resort at The Mountain offers great hot stone massages; a real treat after a long day on the slopes or after a big hike and it is very nearby.

The team at Mt Hood Rentals did a great job - from helping us select the right home that offered the privacy that we desired, to communicating with us prior to the stay, to making great recommendations on where to go and what to do. Try Rendezvous Grill and El Burro Loco while you are there! The local wines and Ice Axe beers were great!

Thank you Mt Hood Rentals for a very memorable and special vacation! You live and work in a really special place!

Review By A Guest
A Guest from Eden Prairie, MN recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Feb, 2011

This is a lovely home and the perfect place for a family get together. There were 8 of us, including children, and it's listed as a 2 bedroom so I almost past on this house but the loft is huge and really like a master bedroom - there was plenty of room for all of us. This house is quite secluded with the only noise coming from the nearby river. The hot tub was warm when we arrived and everything was neat, clean and comfortable. Thanks to the owners for sharing their wonderful home with us.

Beautiful Weekend on Mt Hood
David S. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 3 days in Nov, 2010

We had a great time at Deer Island. The house is gorgeous. Bald eagle dropped by the first morning we were there. House is very comfortable, has a great ipod/iphone compatible stereo system, nice tv, cable. Very peaceful and quiet. The hot tub was really nice--seemed very new. Couldn't have had a better time.
If you are looking for good eats in the area try the Rendezvous Grill (67149 E. Hwy. 26 at Mile Post 40). Really interesting food, great beer on tap.

Shelley B. from Tigard, OR recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Nov, 2010

We have been staying in Mt. Hood vacation rentals for years now. Deer Island Chalet is our favorite so far! The walking trails, the view, the hot tub, and the play structure made for a wonderful vacation for all of us! Our boys loved the bridge out back and 'hunting' in the woods. Thank you!

R&R from Iraq
Joshua C. from Vancouver, WA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jan, 2010

I came home for my 2 weeks of R&R from Iraq and spent an amzing week with my fiance in the deer island chelet. It was a great way to come home and be able to spend time with her, to be able to just get away and relax. We slept in every morning, made good food in kitchen, and on the BBQ, and if we didnt feel like cooking there were several nice resturaunts that were only 15-20 mins away. Then at night it was time to relax in the hot tub, which was great!! Then a nice fire and some drinks. We will be coming back next year for sure. Snow boarding was great as well, we got some fresh powder and had a blast. Thank you all very much, you made my time at home very memerable.

And thank you for your service to our country!

Great place to stay
A Guest from Gold Bar, WA recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in May, 2009

Couldn't have been better. We spent a very relaxing weekend at Deer Island. Wish we could have stayed longer. The home met our needs, was very comfortable and the convienence of the trails for easy hiking was a bonus. We sat on the deck and listened to the river while relaxing and soaking in the warm sun by day and viewing the stars by night. There was a large park like play structure that would fill many hours of play time if you had children with you.
The kitchen was well equiped and our king bed very comfortable. We did not use the televisions so not sure if controls were confusing to use.
We would definately like to visit again!

Deer Island Chalet - October 2008
Mary L. from Aloha, OR recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Oct, 2008

We had a really lovely time at the Chalet! The house is beautiful, and in an extremely beautiful area. We really enjoyed spending time with each other and our dogs, who LOVED the river. We also saw tons of deer! It was close to Government Camp and Timberline Lodge, which was great for us.

My only suggestions would be to have some more lights in the house, since it tended to get very dark once the sun set. Also, it would be nice if there was a cover over the hot tub. It rained for most of our stay, so we only got to use the hot tub one time. If there was a cover, people would be able to enjoy it rain or shine!

Other than that, thank you SO much! We loved the house!

Deer Island is a great place. It is so nice to be able to walk out the back door and go on a hike. Our dogs were in heaven.
