Nice place for a quiet winter stay on the mountain
by Christiane P.
We enjoyed our visit in the Salmon River Condo. Really quiet and peaceful and right next to the river. An easy drive to Government Camp and Mt. Hood Meadows. Supermarket and bakery close bye - a convenient, pretty and quiet spot.
We love how quiet and peaceful it is at the Salmon River condo, too. This place is the ideal basecamp for active people visiting Mt Hood. See you again soon.
Comfortable and inviting condo with nice outdoor spaces
Rented the unit for myself and my daughter to attend a july ski camp. Served our purpose very well. Comfortable, well equipped and spacious. Friendly management and residents. Really enjoyed our stay!
We are happy to hear that the Salmon River Condo worked out so well for your daughter's summer ski camp. We hope she gained new skills and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
Really enjoyed the view of the curve of the river and its gentle and soothing sound.
The view of the river is really awesome here, especially at the riverfront picnic table.

Great Get Away
We enjoyed our stay at the Salmon River Condo. The entire process was smooth from reservations to checking out. They even allowed for a late check-out which was an added bonus. Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful, Relaxing, couldn't have been better!
by Rhonda J.
This weekend was our very first visit to the property. I chose this place for my birthday celebration & couldn't have been more pleased. My boyfriend & I had such a wonderful time, so relaxing & peaceful. There was no snow as we hoped for, but we still had a great time. Best part was we were granted a late checkout; we dropped the key off at 3:30, but we could've stayed longer; the office staff was so laid back & told us to take our time & glad we enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely make this a yearly visit, if not more. 🙂

Salmon River #5
Had a great time, the condo was perfect for our Christmas get-away.
Comfortable quiet condo
by Mary S.
Very professional helpful people in the rental office. Property was well maintained outside, convenient, unit generally very clean, older appearing furniture seeming a bit dated but very comfortable, comfortable bed. Kitchen well equipped and easy to cook in. Good layout and size of unit, particularly for a couple or maybe +1( bedroom has king and single bed.)
Not sure fireplace wood completely dry as did not burn particularly well but both kindling and fire started cubes provided which was appreciated.
Partial view of river through greenery to one side of condo with other views across green & bushes/ trees to other units. Close to a walking path to river so some people walking dogs and could look into unit so not completely private but easy to close or partially close blinds if privacy preferred.
Easy drive up to Timberline and nearby walks and hikes. Different restaurant possibilities ( ate at Rendevous, coffee shop across their parking lot friendly/good coffee)
Overall comfortable unit that provided the desired peace and quiet desired along with convenience of amenities and access to activities.
It sounds like you had a nice visit, enjoying many of the restaurants, shops and activities available throughout the Villages of Mt Hood. We are pleased to know that the Salmon River Condo was the perfect basecamp for your vacation.
Wonderful Weekend Getaway, March 2017
We had a great time at the Salmon River Condo # 5 . The view, the amenities and the location are just perfect. The property was clean and we found everything we needed in the kitchen. We managed to visit the Salmon river trail down the road and highly recommend it. The proximity to mount hood slopes makes this an ideal base for the skiing and snowshoeing enthusiasts. Kayla recommended us to visit the White river Canyon for snowshoeing and we are glad we listened to her!
We hope to be back again.
This spacious condo is the perfect basecamp for winter and summer adventuring at Mt Hood. So glad it worked well for you. See you again soon!

Winter Wonderland Experience over New Year's
This was such a perfect place to stay for a weekend get away over New Year's. It was clean, great amenities, and beautiful view of the river, mountains. Plenty of wood for the fire and just a mile up the road from the main street and grocery. We even got 2 feet of snow to enjoy - but recommend having a snow shovel handy to dig clear a path for the car. 😉
The snow was beautiful, so glad you had a great winter vacation at the Salmon River Condo. The parking lot was plowed shortly after your departure, so sorry they did not get there sooner. We look forward to seeing you again.

Salmon creek condo
by Maria I.
We like the condo very much. Guest bath could use a refresh and some better light nobody likes a dark bathroom, new toilet. Otherwise very comfortable and nice feeling in the condo. Glad that the condo person contacted us day of our stay to make sure we had directions. Would prefer to just have a lock box on condo and go straight to unit not have to find two places. Folks should know that it is prohibited to go in the creek. I think that is not up to the condo to control or limt but rather just state creek use is not under oversight of condo and go at your own risk.

ShadowHawk #5 in December
by Tony M.
The location was great. This unit was quiet, away from the street, with a river view and parking practically at the front door. It was clean, comfortable and the two full baths were ideal. It was snowing the entire time we were there, but the location was just down the street from the grocery store with easy Hwy 26 access. Definitely coming back!
We are happy to know the ShadowHawk worked out so well for your winter vacation. This is one of our best vacation rentals at Mt Hood for an easy quiet getaway with all of the amenities our guests want at a very good price. We look forward to your next visit.

A peaceful retreat
by David B.
My wife and I spent a long weekend there. We were right next to the river. We brought our dog and had a very peaceful and relaxing time. We had dinner several times in Welches. The food was very good and vegan friendly. I highly recommend this super nice place.
Sounds like everyone including the dog had a great vacation at ShadowHawk #5.

Perfect location for a beautiful outdoor adventure!
by Ron S.
The place itself was clean, bright, and comfortable. With 2 dogs it was very convenient to have the big, open lot to romp in right out our back door. Having the river right there was beautiful as well. There are so many of the best trailheads for our favorite hikes within 5 - 20 minutes of our place. Everything was so easy, and convenient and beautiful. The grocery store is 5 mins away with a good selection. And Fay is an Oregon State Treasure! She was incredibly warm, friendly, and customer-oriented. Her support in finding us such a great place at the last minute, and guiding us to some great hikes, was tremendously helpful. Thank you! We'l be back
Happy to hear you had such a great time at the ShadowHawk condo. The location is very central to everything you want to do while on vacation at Mt Hood.
Relaxing and Invigorating!
by Brantlee U.
We stayed at Shadow Hawk the week of 6 June 2015. It was a perfect week weather-wise. Not a cloud in the sky and 80 degree temperatures all week. Some might say it was too warm. Purpose of trip was to take a guided climb to summit of Mt Hood (successful!). We took advantage of hiking around Mt Hood trails, having breakfast at the condo then venturing out and returning to the condo for late lunch or dinner. Relaxed on the outdoor patio and grilled one evening (the grill was dirty and emitted a lot of smoke and grease burning so check the grill before you grill!). Stay was convenient and comfortable. Nice neighbors who live there too. If you want to watch movies, bring your own. There is a collection of books but only found 1 DVD. Internet service was generally good, sometimes wireless was choppy. Same with cell service, but that's the norm here. Built a fire a couple nites (it does get chilly at nite) and fireplace worked great. Didn't use jacuzzi tub.
Congratulations on making it to the summit of Mt Hood!

We were planning to stay with our two daughters and their families at their cabin in Welches, when we came up with the excellent idea of renting a small apartment for the three days where we could stay on our own. It exceeded our expectations. Conveniently located, very clean, excellently furnished and everything you would possibly need was provided. We would highly recommend the Rendezvous restaurant that was very close. The grandchildren loved the heated pool. Would definitely stay here again. Mahalo
Escape from Fireworks?
by Jean A.
We came to the mountains to escape the chaos and noise of fireworks in Vancouver. Rental was mostly quiet but neighboring Resort had a 4th celebration with enough explosions to send our dog into a night of panic. Not under the rental property's control but still disquieting.
We are sorry to hear that your dog was so nervous with the fireworks. We do have more secluded cabins that are further from other homes for you to consider next time.
SHADOW HAWK 5
by Diane W.
WONDERFUL. We checked in, tired from our cross country trip, and asked for some dinner places. The nice lady at the desk offered up two choices -- one we ate at the first night and the other the second. GREAT ADVICE!
I was surprised that the carpet was so stained. What is with folks?
This was such a nice place - described perfectly - quiet retreat.
It was a nice place
by Jack and
I liked everything about my stay there except two things:
1. The bed was hard and uncomfortable and
2. The sound-proofing was poor. I was awoken a couple different times by the tenant above us. You could hear them walking around, etc.
Overall, we enjoyed ourselves but those two points were downers.
We are sorry to hear that the upstairs neighbors were noisy. When you visit next time, ask us about some of our more secluded cabins on acreage.
Great Get-Away Condo
We chose this site/condo because of the excellent reviews we read and were not disappointed! Two bathrooms, comfy bed, full-service kitchen, living and dining areas as well as two patios. Quiet with the sound of the Salmon River.

Beautiful location, clean and well appointed. The only complaint was the weather (too rainy), but what do you expect from Oregon? spent the day lazing in front of the fire with a book instead of snowshoeing. Hope for better weather on a return visit.

I recently spent 2.5 days at this property for my annual Solstice celebration with my three grown kids and my son's girlfriend. We all had a fabulous time. It was the perfect space for us to cook and eat and celebrate together, as well as relax and just be. We loved that the condo was on the river and so close to Mt. Hood and Timberline Lodge, where we went skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing. It was a quiet, peaceful place. Definitely money and time well-spent.

We loved our stay at the Shadowhawk #5. The river view is gorgeous. We loved being able to bring our dog with us and cook for ourselves. They even supplied us with doggie bags, a leash, and treats! We loved the fireplace at night. It was a short and easy trip to Mt. Hood. We were very comfortable and it was a very enjoyable stay. Such a great value as well.

The cabin was perfect for a couple with a baby. Very clean and tidy. Lovely view of the river from dinning table. Only thing I would say is the heating control could do with an instruction label next to it. The heating turned off the first night and it was really cold.

Shadowhawk #5 Stay
Great location! Love the Salmon River being right near the condo. Can hear the water rushing over the rocks. Very Soothing! Plus you actually see Salmon! Close by to trails, shopping, eating out, and of course Mt. Hood! Condo could be a little more updated but it was comfortable and clean.

Labor Day Get-Away
The stream behind the property is so picturesque and relaxing. Dog-friendly policy is great! Linens and kitchen essentials were nicely stocked. The only small negative issue was the toilet in the hallway bathroom that should flush better. We would definitely stay here again.

Shadowhawk #5 very nice
We enjoyed our stay. The kitchen was well equipped and very clean. One small quibble was the shower curtain smelled mildewed. But at checkout I told the clerk and she texted her crew to change it immediately so issues seem to get resolved quickly.
So little time and so much to enjoy!
by Cathy E.
My daughter and I stayed here (3 nights) to end our vacation in Oregon. We had traveled by car to southern Oregon, staying there for the first half of our 10-day vacation. During our second half, we had intended to enjoy the Mt. Hood Byway, Columbia River Gorge and Astoria. And we wanted to do all of this as well as attend my cousin's wedding at Red Ridge Vineyards. Needless to say, we did not do all of it. The location was pretty good as far as getting back and forth to the places we did see...Red Ridge, Columbia River Gorge and Mt Hood.
The hard part about leaving was not only that we did not get to see and do some of the things I mentioned above, but we also did not get time to just sit and relax at Shadow Hawk #5. This condo has quite a few nice amenities like the deck on the back with grill, not to mention the fireplace and the swimming pool and hot tub. If I had planned better, I would have allowed time for some rest and relaxation as well.
The only thing I would change is an addition of a few note cards next to some of the electronic fixtures, such as the heating/AC system, so that guests can learn how to operate them properly. Also, the dining furniture could use some updating. Aside from that, we lacked nothing in the necessities with this rental.
We had a great time, what time we actually spent in the condo. Most of the time was spent on the mountain. Very cozy and the scenery around was spectacular. Wish the hot tub would have been working but maybe next time. Thanks

Shadow Hawk #5
by Jason P.
This was a great place to stay for 2 people.. The only thing that would of made the stay better would of been an early check in option so we did not have to return to the office by 6 on Friday.. But all and all we loved the Condo and it worked out great and I would stay there again.

Welche's weekend get away
Besides the power outages that unfortunately are a part of nature our weekend stay at shadowhawk #5 was wonderful. The house was fully stocked with all the necessities as well as extras. The river and the fireplace also made the weekend extra special!

Needs lots of upgrades for price
ShadowHawk #5 is old and outdated though the price is not! The baths both badly needed a makeover. The toilets did not flush well, the fixtures were old and stained, the floor tiles were dirty and in need of restaining and fresh grout, etc...The kitchen was no better. The dishwasher was old and very loud and we were told to help housekeeping by running the dishwasher prior to checkout as well as do laundry! The kitchen was also not stocked with any coffee - even Best Western stocks your room with coffee! Also, we ended up having to split our own wood for the fireplace since what was provided was inadequate and the extra wood that was available was way too large to burn in such a small fireplace. Don't know who owns this unit but the property manager (who was great by the way) really needs to either insist that they upgrade this condo or stop renting it out at this price! One really good thing though. Great location next to the river.
We regret that the ShadowHawk condo did not meet your expectations. We will check the bathroom fixtures to see if they need repair. We ask guests to not do laundry as we send it out to be professionally laundered, so we are sorry you misunderstood that. The split firewood is stacked on the back deck which can be accessed from the sliding glass door right next to the fireplace. It sounds like you found the larger quarter rounds that had not been split by your maintenance crew. We leave many items in the kitchen including salt, pepper, basic seasonings, cooking oil and all of your basic paper supplies, but as you noticed, we do not leave coffee. A good idea though. This is our lowest priced property and we believe the price, which is competitive for our area, is very good for the home, which really is in pretty good condition. The condo was built in the 80's, but much of the unit has been upgraded since then. Our online virtual tour is a good way to get a full "walking tour" picture of the interior of a rental home. A newer rental home rate will be somewhat higher.

ShadowHawk#5: First time here...liked the first floor convenience...weren't there very much, but the only repair item would be the toilet in the bath off the kitchen...needs to be adjust or rebuilt. Didn't get to use the fireplace.

Office closed - open to help.
Betsy or Becky? Leaving the office for the night was almost out the door - when it happend.I told the family to go get a table at Panda-Panda and I will see if your office was wasn't,but I did notice someone turning out the lights and locking up for the night.I must have looked desperate enough for her to fire back-up the system and save my family from going home from vacation two days early.Thankyou (Betsy or Becky)I wish I could remember your name! You went out of your way to help! Thanks again, The Garvey's

Very nice location and well equipped kitchen. Convenient to Mt Hood and great golf courses right across the street.
Pool & Hot tub in bad condition!!!
by Annette S.
The pool was so filled with so much chemical that you could not see the bottom. So we could not use it, my son was really sad about that. I called twice to make sure the pool was in service, I was told yes both times. We only stay where there are pools. The condo itself was nice.
Thank you for the information regarding the pool. The condo management maintains the pool, so we do not have access to that. However, we have forwarded your comments to the on-site manager for her review.
