Cozy Bear Cabin

3 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms Sleeps 8 Welches Dog Friendly

Cozy Bear Cabin will remind you of a tree house surrounded by tall trees. This cabin is the perfect blend of Mt Hood coziness with modern updates throughout. The vaulted great room with spacious kitchen, woodstove and 6-seat dining table is ideal for gathering together for meals, playing games or watching TV. Plenty of windows and skylights bring in lots of natural sunlight. This 3-bedroom cabin is perfect for a family vacation or 3 couples.

The vaulted great room downstairs is perfectly comfortable for everyone to gather around the TV or the woodstove. The cook will not be left out of the fun with the open kitchen layout and dining area. Two bedrooms downstairs each have a queen bed and share a full bathroom with tub and shower. The upstairs primary suite includes a queen bed, sitting area and en suite bathroom with shower.

Step out to the covered porch for a BBQ then dine at the picnic table. You will want to soak in the private hot tub with forest views or roast marshmallows and tell tall tales around the fire pit after a day of fun playing at Mt Hood. For hikers, the Salmon River Trails are just 1 mile from the cabin and you will be minutes to all other Mt Hood recreation. Your dog is welcome to join you at the Cozy Bear Cabin for an additional charge.

Cozy Bear Cabin

Nice cabin. Pros: we definitely enjoyed the outdoor space, eating dinner outside on the table and just relaxing amongst the trees. The hot tub was also lovely. Overall cabin felt spacious. Cons: Maybe more attention to overall cleanliness. It is dog friendly, so perhaps that’s the issue. The kitchen is well stocked, and the management company was responsive.

Cute clean house

Erica M.
House is well maintained and kept clean. Neighbors are not to close making it feel secluded. Close enough to town and a short drive to Mt. Hood.

Sure is Cozy

Sierra O.
We stayed at Cozy Bear Cabin for a weekend and had a great time. It is very clean and well cared for. The hot tub was relaxing and there was a wonderful wood burning stove that we used. The location was perfect for winter. There wasn’t much snow on the drive over, but plenty surrounding the cabin. It was easy to get to and felt safe. I hope we can stay here again in the future.

Cozy house

We very much enjoyed our stay. Beds were very comfortable; kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and a few basic cooking items. We greatly appreciated the extras for dogs. Hot tub was well-maintained and in a lovely location. Nice place to get away to for a few days.

Cozy Bear pretty good overall

Julie F.
Overall nice space in good location. Close to Zigzag dining. Could use a little TLC but nothing a deal breaker. Hot tub temp can't be adjusted (we knew ahead of time) but it's set to HOT 102-104. Yikes. Beds are ok, new towels & maybe a new shower head would go a long way. Place is nicely stocked. Ceiling fan in living room teases you because there's no way to turn it on! Lol again nice overall just some gentle constructive criticism.
Manager Response
Thank you for your comments, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Cozy Bear Cabin. We ordered new towels in early June and they finally arrived in September, so we are sorry that you had some of the towels that we were forced to limp along with throughout the summer. All hot tubs are set to not go above 104 for safety reasons and if they go to low in temp, it is not safe either. However, if you leave the lid off for about 30 minutes, it usually cools down a bit. The ceiling fan is brand new and is operated by a switch on the wall and a remote; sorry you did not figure this one out.

Amazing beautiful home secluded in the foot hills of Mt Hood

Bettina H.
The Cozy Bear Cabin is the perfect place for a couple on an intimate getaway with the outdoor hot tub. It is also wonderful for a family ready to enjoy beautiful trails and time in front of the indoor wood-burning stove with games, or outside sitting near the fire pit roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. The home has everything you need to prepare home cooked meals. (We even had waffles one morning!) For outdoor activities, the start of the Salmon River Trail head is only 3 min. away from the cabin. It is one of the most picturesque hikes suitable for little ones too. The Zig Zag Inn, 5 min. away, is nostalgic and offers great Italian food and especially pizza. The Dragonfly Cafe, 10 min. away, offers amazing prime rib dinners on Fri. and Sat. nights. We will definitely be back.

Coziest cabin!

When the weather changed and gave Oregon an epic storm, this was a very nice place to be. We thought the week would be cold and dry, lots of skiing, snowshoeing and hot tubing. That did turn out to be the case, but much closer to the cabin, right outside the door in fact. We ordered more wood before the storm, so we were nice and toasty warm. Luckily our power stayed on all week. This is a lovely warm cabin with a great location, far enough from town to seem remote, but close enough if one needed something. The cabin was clean, pretty well appointed, attractively decorated, and darn comfortable.

Beautiful Getaway

Philip H.
This cabin is a wonderful getaway in the middle of a gorgeous area full of hiking opportunities. Lots of room, nice kitchen, very comfy master bed and nice living room area complete with TV and movie channels such as Netflix. Security motion lights make you feel safe with a nice fire pit and plenty of wood. There is no AC, but we kept the windows open and it cooled us very well. The hot tub works well, but difficult to use at night as there are no lights in the vicinity of the hot tub. We would definitely come back again.
Manager Response
We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the Cozy Bear Cabin. We have purchased path lights that are motion-sensitive for the path to the hot tub.

Wonderful stay!

Kimberly E.
Cozy Bear Cabin was absolutely perfect for our stay. We had 2 families with young children, and the house fit us wonderfully. The master bedroom easily fit our pack-n-play with plenty of room to walk and still enjoy the sitting area. The spa was amazing to relax in at the end of the night after a good hike. We cooked many meals in the kitchen and it was very well stocked with every utensil needed. I highly recommend this house!

Comfortable and pretty

Shawn D.
We had two families here to enjoy the snow. We loved the woodsy setting. The open floor plan encouraged together-time, and the large table was great for family meals and games. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice spot for a quiet weekend

Cozy Bear was comfortable for a relaxing weekend getaway. Though it is near a road, it is not a busy one and we felt secluded in the woods. There were a few items missing (lighter for the wood stove and kitchen towels). The staff promised them the next day but did not deliver. The living area is very dark - if you like to read (or anything else non-electronic) bring a lamp or two.

Mount Hood Family Vacation

Glenn B.
We had a great time and the Cozy Bear Cabin served us well, especially to ameliorate the days of rain/mist! I warned them about the Pacific Northwest 🙂 Only slight bugaboo was the grill would not go past 350 degrees the second time we used it, checked both canisters and they appeared to be full, otherwise all good.
Manager Response
it is so good to know that the Cozy Bear Cabin lived up to its name on those misty days during your Mt Hood vacation. We will check the BBQ to see what is going on. Thanks for the head's up.

Awesome Girls Weekend

Wendy S.
My girl friends and I like to hear to Mt Hood every few months for a weekend getaway. We’ve stayed in LOTS of cabins over the years and Cozy Bear is our fave! The kitchen is the best stocked I’ve seen for a rental, the open floor plan is awesome for one of us to be doing a puzzle at the dining table, one to be cooking it up in the kitchen and the rest to be watching movies - but we can still talk and enjoy our together time. Cozy Bear is clean, quiet, private but easy to get to and a quick run to the store for provisions. Three of our group work in property management (so we’re picky about rentals) and the team at Mt Hood Rentals is professional, friendly, helpful and responsive! Definitely will be coming back for years of girl’s trips!
Manager Response
We love hearing that you had such a great time on your Girlfriend Getaway at the Cozy Bear Cabin. We aim to please and are so happy to hear that you felt well-cared for (especially coming from the pros in your group!). We look forward to your next vacation at Mt Hood.

Fun Getaway

Kimberley G.
Cozy Bear Cabin locates right off the road but was very quiet and private. Inside is extremely clean and inviting. Outside BBQ appeared brand new. The only disappointing thing was the lack of space around the fire pit. House set for 6 people and only chairs for 2. Appreciate the amount of wood given to tenents. I would definitely come here again.
Manager Response
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Cozy Bear Cabin. Thank you for reminding us that we need more seating around the firepit. We look forward to seeing you next time.

We spent the whole month of July in this very cozy cabin about 2 miles away from he main highway 26. Very quiet, tranquil and beautiful surroundings. Love every day we where there. Kayla and Fay from Mt Hood Vacation Rentals went out of their ways to make our stay perfect. Thank you to both of you. Regards Bette

Cozy Stay

We had a wonderful time at the Cozy Bear Cabin! It was a family vacation for spring break and this place was perfect! The beds were comfy, the kitchen was well stocked and there was plenty to do. The kids bedroom has games and movies and such to keep them entertained and the hot tub, tv and trails were great for adults.

Cozy Bear Cabin--wonderful weekend getaway!

Linda H.
My husband and I and our entire family, including two grandchildren, got away for a wonderful weekend in the woods at the Cozy Bear Cabin. It really was a perfect place for our family, as it had just enough woods for a 4- and 6-year-old to explore, just outside the door, and the interior was spacious enough for the family and two big dogs. We had a great time, as we could all be together in the same room whenever we wanted, but we could also spread out, as there was a wonderful space filled with toys and games upstairs for the kids. Great location--close to the Zig Zag ranger station and plenty of nearby forest trails. We used the hot tub, too, which was located not far from the immense front porch. Such a relaxing and fun getaway! Thank you! Two things to fix: We could find no directions to the DVD player in the main room and were unable to watch movies. While the staff at Mt. Hood Vacation offered to come over, we declined. It really wasn't that important, but it's something you may want to fix soon. Also, we found four dirty, used coffee mugs with coffee drips down the outsides and inside, as well as one very greasy plate in the cupboard with the clean dishes. Somehow, the cleaning crew missed that. Perhaps they need to check dishes that have been "washed" and put away by the previous guests. That was gross, but it didn't ruin our vacation.

A most relaxing weekend!

Jason H.
The whole family had a very nice relaxing experience. My only concern was there seemed to be a lot of the exterior lighting out including the hot tub, but everything else was great. Already Planning on contacting Mt. Hood Vacation again next year. After a day out in the snow, so much better than a hotel room! Thank you.

We are happy that you had a great vacation at the Cozy Bear Cabin. Thank you for the head's up about the exterior lighting; we will get that taken care of.

Ski trip vacation

Sam R.
The cabin is great, plenty of room and clean. There was a mouse running around in the cabin but it didn't seem to get into our food. Also the ceiling fan in the living room hasn't been cleaned in a while. But it's very high up so I expect it to be difficult to clean.
Manager Response
We are glad that this home worked well for your ski trip and we look forward to seeing you again. Thanks for the head's up on the mouse. We will relocate him.

Great family cabin

DeeDee E.
Cozy Bear is great for families with children as the upstairs is set up for kiddos. The downstairs bathroom could use some shelves as there is little space to put toiletries or makeup bags. Great deck and lovely surroundings. Very close to hiking trails. No river view, and unfortunately.

The Cozy Bear Cabin is perfect for a family gathering with the kids' room upstairs, glad to hear it worked so well for you. We will look into shelving for the bathroom. We look forward to your next visit.

I can't say enough wonderful things about my experience (3/3/16 - 3/6/16) at the cozy bear. So much space. Nice rooms; WIFi that allowed us to stream music ; Cell phone reception was good, and there was also a landline to receive calls (just in case); the hot tub was great. It was a great Cabin!

Beautiful home but not as secluded as it leads you to believe

We stayed here for four nights in October. The house was wonderful! The only downside was it wasn't even close to what I would consider secluded! You can constantly see cars driving through the trees on two sides of the house. It's still has quite a bit of privacy it's just not what I would secluded.
Manager Response
We are glad to know that you found the Cozy Bear Cabin to be wonderful. We apologize that the setting did not seem as secluded as you would like. When we define secluded, we are referring to the proximity of other homes and cabins, so next time be sure to let us know that you also want to be further away from the road. We do have cabins with long driveways that will accomplish that for you.

Quaint and Peaceful

Ali C.
We absolutely loved the Cozy Bear Cabin. Our family was flying into the Portland airport later in the evening so we decided to stay in Welches for a couple of nights before driving home to Bend. So glad we did since the flight was delayed 2 1⁄2 hours, putting us at the cabin close to 12am. We couldn’t have asked for a better cabin. There were four of us and our dog. It was the perfect amount of room for all of us and we were very happy to have the additional bathroom upstairs. The house felt very private from the road and neighbors. Since it was in the 90’s while we were there, we left the windows open at night and were able to hear the sound of the rushing water from the river close by. One evening we were able to sit out on the porch and BBQ, making it stress free and relaxing after doing the Fruit Loop around the Hood River area earlier that day. Each morning we enjoyed walks along the river, only 1⁄4 mile down from the cabin. We all have fond memories of our stay and look forward to going back in the winter to enjoy some skiing!

Relaxing stay at Cozy Bear

Angie M.
It was a very nice cabin. We came in late and finding it the dark wasn't easy. Would be nice if you put some kind of light on the address. Hot tub was extremely clean and very nice. The bed and pillows were not comfortable. I would give this cabin 3 out 5. The rental staff was great. Very helpful and friendly. Would give the staff 5 out 5
Manager Response
Thank you for your comments. We will work on lighting for the address sign and updating the mattresses.
