Perfect Getaway
Kirsten C. from Beaverton, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Nov, 2020

Great house on a private lot right next to the river. Couldn't have asked for anything better. We loved it so much we booked another trip in January.

As always Mt Hood Vacation Rentals were a pleasure to work with.

Great social distanced getaway
Malia H. from Seattle, WA recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Jul, 2020

We enjoyed this home for a long weekend to get away as well as host a friend from the area for a very distanced visit on the large, lovely deck. The home was clean and the kitchen was well stocked. There was a strong smell of campfire from the woodstove that we didn't like, but I suspect it might have been from prior renters who might not have vented it correctly. It improved by the time we left. We appreciated being able to use the garage, too.

Great Weekend
A Guest from Tigard, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Jan, 2019

I arranged the rental of this vacation home for a weekend with friends and it was a great time. The house was nice and it was one of the few options that would provide all four couples their own separate bedroom with a queen size or larger bed. The house was in good shape and the kitchen well supplied with place settings and cook ware (except no non-stick frying pans). The large deck overlooking the river was great to go sit out on and enjoy the sound of the water and view of the forest. It was nice that 3 of the 4 bedrooms had balconies or deck access to step out first thing in the morning. The house was clean but there was a little wear/tear on some of the furniture but nothing offensive.

The house was very close to the grocery store and some other local activities. It was a short drive up to Ski Bowl for some playing around in the snow. If the road in to the house was snowing it might be difficult for cars and non 4 wheel drive vehicles, its gravel and was fairly bumpy but this could be a seasonal issue. Seems like it would be a great place in summer or winter. Mt Hood Vacation Rentals staff was great and friendly when I dealt with them. I'd be happy to recommend this place to others.

Manager Response:

We love hearing that you had a wonderful stay at the Sandy River Retreat. The setting here with the forest and the river is one of our favorites, too. The homeowner is updating furnishings this spring, so when you come back you will see some new items. We do plow the roads and driveways during the winter as needed, however, you would still need 4WD with traction tires to get in. We look forward to your next visit.

Great Time
Paul H. from Philipsburg, St. Maarten recommends this property
Stayed 6 days in Aug, 2018

We had a great stay. The house was perfect. We loved being in the woods and hearing the river. Very peaceful but close enough to all the action. Would definitely stay again

Manager Response:

One of the best spots by Sandy River
Dean P. from Portland , OR recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Jul, 2018

Quiet and isolated which is exactly what we wanted. Listening to the river 24/7 was amazing and beautiful. The house itself is spacious and roomy with great views of the river, flora and fauna (saw deer, hawks, eagles, butterflies). advice though not all the furniture/bathrooms work for big and tall individuals. Otherwise, nice place to relax and rejuvenate.

Manager Response:

It sounds like your visit was very peaceful. We love how relaxing and calm the Sandy River Retreat can be. Excited for you that you saw so much wildlife.

Beautiful Home in a Beutiful Setting
Carlos V. from Denton, TX recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Mar, 2018

This rental process and property was truly fantastic from start to finish. The Mt. Hood Vacation Rentals team were super helpful in choosing the home, working to ensure we would be happy based on what we were going to do across different interests in our party. The home was well taken care of and well stocked. Everything was comfortable and clean as well as bright and shiny. The stream behind the house was beautiful (what a refreshing sound). After a couple of minor issues at check-in (water and heat) were resolved we were off to the races. The area is within 20-30 minutes from Mt. Hood (Timberline and SkiBowl) and it really did not seem like too far for daily drives out to the mountain to ski. The well-stocked Grocery store was minutes away (drive or walk). We would definitely stay again and use MHVR!

Manager Response:

We love hearing that you had such a great experience staying at the Sandy River Retreat. It is our mission to ensure your vacation is everything you want it to be and we are so happy we did that for you. We look forward to welcoming you for your next visit.

Peaceful and great location!
Amy C. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 2 days in Mar, 2018

We had a much needed couples retreat prior to some big life events. We got all of what we needed with the big kitchen, nice bedrooms, outdoors and great location. Easy journey to hike trillium lake, river is right behind house and bbq on the deck. The house was clean and had everything we needed. In the winter I recommend the wood stove it was sooo cozy and they supplied the wood which was fantastic. The living rooms high ceiling makes for great acoustics for anyone looking to bring a guitar, uke and singing. Such a special stay!
Thank you and we will be back!)

Family Dream Vacation in the Snow
Janet L. from Tigard, OR recommends this property
Stayed 6 days in Dec, 2017

The snow was awesome and very tall trees danced in the wind, warm and cozy beds with lots of pillows and the raging Sandy River that could be heard everywhere. Fires snapped and comforted. So many activities minutes away. Beautiful house.

Manager Response:

Wow, we love hearing that your visit to the Sandy River Retreat was so wonderful. We love the setting with the wind in the trees and the roaring river, too.

Highly Recommended
Christine F. from Portland, OR recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Nov, 2016

We had a wonderful family time at this beautiful property. It was 5 minutes to the grocery store and places to eat, yet it felt like we were in the middle of the forest. We were 20-30 minutes from child friendly hikes and a short drive to the snow at Timberline. Our ages ranged from 18 months to 92 years old and there were 9 of us all together. We had Thanksgiving dinner, so lots of cooking. This place accommodated us beautifully.

Manager Response:

We are so pleased that the Sandy River Retreat worked out so well for your multi-generational Thanksgiving. How nice that you could all gather together in one place for this special time. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Catching up with Long Distance Old Friends
A Guest from Ashburn, VA recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Oct, 2016

Wonderful time at Sandy River Retreat. Wonderful, central location for the Mt. Hood "Loop" and away from the majority of traffic but within easy reach of the necessities. House is nicely laid out and in a quiet area with the sound of the river rushing over the rocks right outside. Would stay again in a heartbeat!!

Manager Response:

We love hearing that you had such a great time at the Sandy River Retreat visiting with long-time, long-distance friends. We look forward to seeing you again when you visit Mt Hood.

Great setting for a family getaway
Nicole K. from Boise, ID recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Jul, 2016

We had a great time at the house and in the surrounding area. The 4 bedrooms gave everyone the privacy needed and we all found the rooms to be quiet. The deck and hot tub were really nice features on the nights that we wanted to relax at the house. It was nice and clean, having a washer and dryer was huge for us too. The location was wonderful, we drove 50 minutes to get to wineries, 20 minutes to Trillium Lake and 10 minutes to some short little hikes. It was perfect for us.

Manager Response:

It sounds like you had a great vacation at Mt Hood and the Sandy River Retreat was the perfect basecamp for your adventures. We look forward to seeing you again next summer.
