Birthday getaway

by Becky P.
The cabin was real cool with 4 entryways. Open and nice. The spiral staircases made it impossible for my dog to go up or down stairs. It poured the whole entire time we were there and there wasn’t much refuge from the rain on the porch. The TV was downstairs in the bedroom and needed to sit on the bunkbed and ready to watch anything which made it pretty uncomfortable. I was hoping for more hiking trails closer to the cabin rather than having to hop in my car and drive somewhere.

Great forest cabin

by Thomas S.
We had a great time at the cabin as always. The geodesic dome is such a unique house, and is a perfect place for a weekend getaway with friends and family. This will always be at the top of our list when it comes to vacation spots!

Cedar Creek Hideaway Review

by Nicholas G.
My friends and I stayed at the spot for 2 weeks to ski at Mt. Hood in July. We had an overall great experience. It was generally comfortable and spacious and an absolutely BEAUTIFUL location. The internet is garbage. Might as well not have it. The place is marketed to large groups but the internet can barely support 1 person. That was extremely frustrating. We had some bear issues with the garbage outside. A new bear-protective garbage solution could be great.
We are glad you loved the location and the setting of the Cedar Creek Hideaway. There are many locations around the mountain that cannot get broadband and this is one of them. It is frustrating for us as well. Make sure you ask when you book next time about the Internet. You can also find the Internet speed in each property description in the bullet points. We have ordered a bear-proof trash can for this cabin, so that will be in place soon.

Cedar Creek Hideaway

by Edgar C.
This was an incredible stay. Secluded with visions of an awe inspiring night sky. No better place to spend with a group of people you're trying to build a bond with. Even you decide to come out here on your own to get away from the madness of it all, this cabin comes decked with a collection of books which draws envy and respect. Firewood is provided to you and a grill is available for use along with pots and pans to spare. Although difficult to find, Mt. hood Vacation Rentals has the foresight to provide you with written directions which are straight forward and lead you directly to the cabin. Highly Recommend!

Amazing Get Away

by Chandra L.
This house provided the perfect weekend get away for our family. We had an amazing time.

Very nice secluded home

by Guest
overall it was a nice house to stay. would have been better if they have provided some shampoo's and moisturizers
We love hearing how much you enjoyed your stay. We do not provide all those little tiny plastic bottles of toiletries to keep them out of the landfills. Also, most people are picky about their products. When you visit next time, check out our What to Pack page under the Planning Your Vacation tab on our website.

Cedar Creek stay

by Chris R.
The location of this property is idea - very private and plenty to explore on the 7 acres. The house is definitely funky and original so charming but not luxurious. The master is open to the downstairs so can get noisy if you have kids who stay up later.

Awesome Weekend in the Forest

by Sara B.
We rented the Cedar Creek Hideaway for my husband's 30th and we had a wonderful time! The acoustics in the house made the weekend that much more interesting. It's close enough to Thrift Way in case you run out of any food or drink necessities and it's a quick drive to some awesome hiking. The house was clean and the master bath alone is worth booking this cabin! My ONLY complaint is that there were some mouse droppings in some of the pots and pans. If you're looking for a trip with friends and family that is somewhat close to Portland yet secluded enough to feel like you get the true "in the woods" experience then this is the place! Looking forward to going back!

Cedar Creek Hideaway!

by Garrett K.
The stay here was absolutely perfect. The staff was more than accommodating. The house is gorgeous and perfectly secluded. 0/10 would recommend solely so that I can use it privately whenever I want!

A unique architectural marvel in secluded woodland setting!

by Dan &
This place is amazing! Great family get-away with lots of living space on 3 floors. My daughter was delighted to find glow in the dark night sky constellations on the bunk room ceiling. With the light off you really felt as if you were outside looking up into the sky! This space is well cared for and has everything you need for family dinners, lots of games, a pool table, grill and hiking trails. The staff was quick to respond to all communications and were very helpful and friendly.
We love how amazing the Cedar Creek Hideaway is, too. So glad you enjoyed your time here. We would love to see you again when you visit Mt Hood.

Relax, Rejuvenate & Make Memories

by Nancy S.
Cedar Creek Hideaway is The Place! With a well-equipped kitchen that beckons 2-3 cooks working together, laughter & memories are prolific. The beautiful log table & benches is the perfect place for family meals, board games & time together! The pool table is great for socializing & demonstrating ones lack of skills ... or developing talent as my grandsons so quickly demonstrated. The beautiful surround deck is perfect for this locale as this cabin is secluded. With streams & waterfalls on both sides, the woods beg to be explored. Definitely our favorite family get-away!
We love how much your family and you enjoyed your stay at the Cedar Creek Hideaway. Please come back for a visit soon.

Quiet Vacation Retreat

by Kurt B.
We were very happy with our stay in the Cedar Creek Hideaway. The dome provided fun acoustics with voices traveling in interesting ways. The wood stove made the stay quite cozy, even during a rainy, cool fall day. The kitchen was well equipped for holiday meals and the pool table provided hours of entertainment along with the whole house sound system. The library was quite extensive and I wished I had more time to explore all of the books.
We are so glad that your holiday stay at the Cedar Creek Hideaway was so much fun. Love the interesting acoustics in the geodesic dome. We look forward to seeing you again.

Great Mini Vaca Spot in The Woods!

by Guest
Overall, this cabin was amazing! The overall feel was exactly what we were looking for during our vacation away from busy city life. The family room was open and allowed for our party to all be in the same spot, enjoying each others company. The pool table downstairs was a great additional feature!
The Cedar Creek Hideaway is just the right cabin and location to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet you are still so close to the stores and restaurants in the Villages of Mt Hood. So glad this was just right for you, too.

Secluded Mt. Hood Hideaway

We loved the place! My family spent 5 quiet and peaceful nights here in the beautiful seclusion on the mountain. The creek and water fall behind the place was a serene treat as well. Would recommend to others and will be planning a return.
We love hearing that you had a peaceful vacation at the Cedar Creek Hideaway. We look forward to your next visit.

Unique and lovely lodging option

by Guest
We stayed here for a conference nearby. The staff was very friendly and helpful with our booking and accommodation. The hideaway was a scenic, unique, fun place to stay. Every time we pulled up to the place I would stop and stare at how breathtaking the architecture was, especially nestled in the stunning scenery. The interior is actually pretty normal and fit our needs well. Comfy bedrooms, standard bathrooms, large dining room table, and an older kitchen we didn't use. The road /driveway was steep, unpaved, and had a few deep holes, so factor that into your decision of what car to drive or whether to stay here. Overall a great stay.

We had a blast!

by Jordin K.
The cabin looks exactly like the photos - so picturesque and unique! There is a short trail to an amazing waterfall just off the last curve of the driveway - we walked our dogs there everyday and just stared in awe. The driveway is long and steep, and it snowed close to 10 inches while we were there. But our Toyota Tundra with winter tires made it up and down with no problem (even without chains). Highly recommend a stay!!
So glad you had a blast and lots of snow to have fun in with the dogs.

As nice as the picture

by Nathen B.
This is a great space. There are four beds downstairs, and two upstairs. The kitchen is a little dated but everything works and it is very functional. It is just a really cute cabin. There are lots of dishes, glasses, pots, pans. The write up says parking for two cars but there is space for about five. The driveway is long and steep as advertised. My friend with a prius had to drive up it backwards to keep traction, but my AWD did it without a problem.
We are happy that you had such a nice time at the Cedar Creek Hideaway. Winter conditions definitely require tractions tires or devices and / or 4WD. The driveway here is curvy, so we do not recommend driving it in reverse.

The perfect vacation

by Ivan L.
Our stay at the cedar creek hideaway was the dream vacation. The house was very spacious, comfortable and awesomely beautiful. The views were breathtaking and the snow and ice on the outside combined with the warmth from fire stove on the inside made for that "Kodak Moment" in our lives. No details were left out in the accommodations Cedar Hideaway was very clean and well stocked with house hold needs, including a vast array of spices and cooking pots and pans. We Also joyed the BBQ on the outside - we're from Hawaii you don't BBQ in the snow in Hawaii - we did ??! "Braging Rights"The staff for Mt Hood Vacation Rentals we're very personable, friendly and atenttave to all our concerns and needs. Hats off to the staff and management - well done and thank you. Don't miss out on a big bucket list item. We're glad we didn't. We can't wait to next year.
We are so glad that you had so much wonderful snow at the Cedar Creek Hideaway to play in while visiting Mt Hood from Hawaii. It is always fun to do something different for your vacation. We look forward to seeing you again next year!

Bringing in 2017 with a Storm

by Nancy S.
Great cabin to spend the holidays. Perfect for extended family and pets. Quiet location on a beautifully wooded slope with a creek and lovely waterfall nearby. Tranquil, relaxing, refreshing and totally user friendly place. Our time was much too short and we will be back again. Thanks.
We love the quiet and peaceful solitude at Cedar Creek Hideaway, too. We are so glad you had a nice holiday with friends and family. See you soon!

Amazing experience

by Brenda N.
Was a very peaceful location and the house had all the amenities needed and more. Timberline Lodge is about 20 minutes away and a great hike up to see Mt. Hood.
With the 7 acres surrounded by national forest, you do get peace and quiet at the Cedar Creek Hideaway. It is really pretty here during the winter, too.

Waterfall in the Woods

by Daniel H.
Beautiful location and very cool layout. Everything in the cabin worked properly. Perfect amount of wood left for the included fire pit. Only complaint is somewhat lax cleaning. Bathroom, bedrooms, kitchen were spotless but nobody had dusted in forever. Cobb webbs in corners, in light fixtures etc. Staff was excellent! Will come again
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Cedar Creek Hideaway, especially sitting around the firepit at night under the stars. We appreciate the comments about the dust and cobwebs; that is not our standard and we look forward to a future opportunity to show you that.

Definitely Would Recommend

by Guest
Spent the weekend at this awesome cabin with a group of my friends. Everyone really enjoyed the cabin and my engineer friends geeked out about the unique design the whole trip. Plenty of space on a secluded property and an easy drive to government camp, just what we wanted!
We are not engineers and we geek out about the cool geodesic design of the Cedar Creek Hideaway. We are happy to hear that the weekend was so much fun for you and your friends. We look forward to your next visit.

Beautiful views from all windows. We loved the waterfall behind the cabin.
Isn't the waterfall behind the Cedar Creek Hideaway cool? We are glad you found it.

Fantastic time at Mt. Hood

by Guest
My wife and I spent a delightful two days at the Cedar Creek Hideaway. We played pool, read and relaxed, and slept soundly with the sounds of a lovely creek just outside. We were glad it was just the two of us because the master bedroom is not very private. We're definitely open to renting this property again.
We are very happy to know that you had a relaxing retreat away from your busy lives. The Cedar Creek Hideaway floorplan is definitely family-friendly.

Refreshing weekend away

by Sam H.

Home Away From Home

by Phavandy S.
This was definitely a magical place. As soon as we pulled up I think it took us a while to pick our jaws up off the ground. Loved how it was tucked away and secluded. It totally felt like home once we got inside and unpacked. Very nice and cozy. We didn't have any maintenance issues which was such a relief. Definitely haven't had the same luck at other places we've stayed. We had such a good time playing pool in the basement and laughed so hard. Then shortly after dinner we played several board games that were provided and stored in the closet. We ended every night in front of the fireplace sharing stories and reflecting on the good times in life. To top it off, my friend accidentally left his fishing pole at the cabin and the management were nice enough to mail it back! Free of charge! Awesomeness Overall I highly recommend this place. From how it's maintained and managed to the way it looks and makes you feel.
We love hearing when our guests have fun and relaxing vacations in a Mt Hood Vacation Rental. We are happy to know that you had such a great experience at Cedar Creek Hideaway.

Coolest ceiling I have ever slept under! 🙂

by Solana L.
We had a wonderful time in the Cedar Creek Hideaway! The dome is amazing and the place was clean (minus a few spiders but hey, you are surrounded by beautiful trees! comes with the territory!) The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed to make coffee, breakfast etc and the store is a super short drive down the road. Many of the light bulbs were burnt out but there was plenty of natural light so it was never a huge problem.I think the Mt Hood Rentals was on that as soon as we checked out. 🙂 It was just my boyfriend and I and we kept pleading our friends to drive out from Portland since it is such a great place to stay with a big family or some friends, but it ended up just being the two of us and was lovely. Just a short drive to great hikes and even Timberline if you want to grab a drink on the mountain! We will definitely be back next time we are in the area!
So good to hear that you enjoyed your Mt Hood vacation in this unique geodesic dome cabin.

A gem in the wood

by Guest
Beautiful hidden house in the wood. Love the architecture of the dome designs. The house has all the amenities that we needed during our stay here. We had to call AAA road side assistance because our car got stuck on the gravel road on the way up to the hill. Beside that, we would love to come back again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house.
The geodesic dome design of this cabin has been very popular because it is so different. We are sorry to hear that your car got stuck in the driveway. We recommend guests to visit in larger cars, SUVs or trucks because it is a long, somewhat steep driveway.

Spectacular getaway

Great place to get away from it all! We came back relaxed and recharged.

Cool place to stay

by Guest
I stayed at this rental and it really is a hideaway. On the drive up to it there are a lot of close together properties and I was worried that there would be close neighbors but the house is at the top of a hill and feels very secluded even though it's a 5 minute five minute drive to thriftway. The upstairs shower sprayed water at odd angles making a mess, but other than that everything worked really well. The beds were comfortable, futon was great for napping, plenty of games and cards for entertainment. The house is very interesting architecturally speaking, the echoing was eerie. If two people stand in the right spot on two different floors and speak normally it sounds like the other person is whispering directly in your ear. I enjoyed my stay and would stay again.
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit at this unique geodesic dome. We will have to test out the acoustics, interesting. Thank you for the head's up on the shower head; we will get that resolved.

Cedar Creek Hideaway

by Guest
We had a great time this past weekend. We were very cozy in the Cedar Creek Hideaway. We enjoyed the wood stove, pool table, and deck with the close proximity to the creek. We loved cooking in the big kitchen. We were disappointed that the internet tv didn't work well to watch football. The topbunks in the bottom rooms were difficult to sleep in since they were so close to the ceiling and sound travels far in the cabin. The road would have been really hard to get up had it been snow covered.
We recommend the Cedar Creek Hideaway for guests who are looking for a relaxing vacation. We definitely recommend winter visitors to Mt Hood be prepared to drive on snow; you need traction devices (chains or snow tires).

Wonderful place

by Guest
This was a great experience. The cabin is in an incredibly beautiful spot, it had everything we wanted. We went for my fiance's 40th birthday, with our two teenage sons, and everyone had a great time, even though there was no snow!! It was easy to deal with the rental company, they were very professional and courteous.
Thank you, so happy to hear you had great birthday celebration.
