Stay with us at Rapid River Retreat
About this Vacation Rental
You will have a quiet, relaxing vacation at the Rapid River Retreat, one of our most popular vacation rentals. Sit by the Sandy River with your morning coffee or a glass of wine in the afternoon and see and hear the Sandy River rushing by. With the west-facing backyard, you will soak in lots of afternoon sunshine while grilling dinner on the Weber gas BBQ. After dinner roast marshmallows and tell tall tales gathered around the firepit. The private, outdoor hot tub next to the river will cap off a day of fun and an evening of relaxation.
The vaulted great room is perfect for a gathering of friends and family who like to cook with the spacious open kitchen and second prep area with its own sink. You can sit around the large dining table for dinner and enjoy the river and mountain views through the floor-to-ceiling picture windows. The wood-burning fireplace warms the home and adds to the mountain lodge ambiance.
This home is perfectly suited for three couples or a small family with three bedrooms (1 king, 2 queens) and two full bathrooms. However, for groups up to 8 guests, there is a sofa bed in the master suite. Each bedroom looks out over the Sandy River and the Cascade foothills in the background adding to the relaxing atmosphere.
The kids will love adventuring in the forest surrounding the Rapid River Retreat as well as finding fun places to explore throughout the Villages of Mt Hood. Your dog will be happy that you brought him along on this getaway retreat with the river to play in and the gated, dead-end road for taking long walks. The national forest just across the street from the cabin is a perfect place for your dog to explore and run.
The Rapid River Retreat is featured on the TV Show, Getting Away Together! Watch this YouTube to learn more.

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.
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 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.
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.

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!
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.
