Stay with us at Thistle Dew
About this Vacation Rental
Thistle Dew, a completely renovated historic cabin along the Salmon River in Welches has been the center of Mt Hood memories for more than a century. Settle in at this cozy cabin with river views from most every room, the riverfront back deck and the grassy backyard. During the summer months dip your toes in the cool river water, during the late summer and early fall watch the salmon spawning with a backdrop of fall colors and in the winter, stay cozy and warm inside with a frosting of snow along the river's edge. Relax in the private, outdoor hot tub with Salmon River views.
The cabin setting is ideal for a romantic getaway with the cozy wood-filled interior and the sounds of the river flowing by. The spacious en suite bedroom includes a queen bed, twin day bed and attached bathroom. The modern kitchen includes a full-size refrigerator, range with cooktop and full-size oven, microwave, toaster and all of the pots, pans, dishes, serveware and utensils you need to prepare a fantastic meal. Grill out on the back deck on the gas BBQ with the sounds and views of the river as your backdrop.
Stay warm and cozy inside with the ambiance of a natural wood fire in the woodstove and the electric heat. During the summer months open the windows for the natural air conditioning of a cooling cross breeze. You will love the natural sunlight that streams in through the great room skylights all day long and and the nighttime view of the stars. The relaxing riverfront location will lure you to spend all of your time outside just gazing at the river with a good book, good company and a glass of good wine.

It was really lovely and the house was beautiful and the area very quiet and peaceful. Too much expensive for only two nights and the house is not so luxury for the price though. Even though I will recommend.
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at the Thistle Dew. We love the Salmon River setting. When you stay longer than 2 nights during the summer, the rates are lower. And the best times of year to visit for the lowest rates is the spring and fall.

Great weekend getaway

We absolutely loved it! It was just what we needed and more! When we arrived the lights were on and the heat was on which was a nice touch. It had every little amenity we needed, and it was perfectly clean. Great neighborhood, great location and of course the best part- a hot tub right on the river! We can’t wait to come back!
