About this listing
This charming one room cabin with loft is privately situated on the edge of our home's yard and woods. Hand scribed pine logs, woodsy & antique interior and a wood stove make it a perfect retreat after a day of hiking in the Columbia River Gorge.
Jan was very pleasant. The cabin is full of resources about hikes and other things to do in the area. Jan baked the best pecan rolls that she shared with us and the cabin also had plenty of other snacks. I would make sure to bring your own water though. Overall, we had a good experience.
What a wonderful little treasure. I loved having this little cabin all to myself for a night. Jan and Larry greeted me with a warm smile and fresh coffee cake! Yum!
The cabin is well-appointed with just about everything you need for a cozy night in the 'woods'. I enjoyed my time sitting in the rocking chair with a book, a glass of wine, and the sound of the rain.
The bed is incredibly soft and comfortable, and the blankets were heavy (which is good because I dislike being cold). Plenty of extras, too!
The outhouse was different but perfect for the cabin. Water gets hot, and there's a heater in the outhouse to keep it warm.
Multnomah and other falls are a short drive away and I got to spend time hiking the area. It is so gorgeous - highly recommend making that a part of your travel plans if staying here. The 6-mile loop at Multnomah is probably the most beautiful hike I've been on.
Really you can't go wrong with this place. I plan to not only tell all my friends about it, but I'd love to go back sometime!
Thank you, Jan and Larry!
"Cozy" only just begins the description of this cottage. Picturesque, quaint, lovely, and spectacular are other words that come to mind; however "absolutely cozy" defines this place. The cottage itself is so well decorated from kitsch across generations, useful hiking information, and even hidden hobbits! Also-- there was fresh organic coffee cake with raspberries welcoming us as we entered the ambient-lit cabin. Jan greeted us as we arrived, walking out with a flashlight to make sure we found the parking and entrance way. We were treated to a nice view from her back yard then settled in for the most comfortable evening on our 9-day trip. We cannot give any higher praise to Jan or the setting of this wonderful place to stay and wish we could have spent more time here!
The description and listing were accurate, and Jan was wonderful to us throughout our short trip to her cabin. The cabin was immaculate and accurately described
Our host, Jan, welcomed us when we arrived with a thorough tour, fresh blackberries and a delicious coffee cake. The cabin was as advertised. If you are looking for a serene, quiet place nestled in the woods, where grosbeaks visit, this is the place for you. However, be sure to note that you must go outside to access the bathroom and the ladder to the sleeping loft is a bit awkward.
We loved the private aspect of this small cabin, its engaging decorations, and just that it's a cabin. The blueberry cake and fresh blueberries from nearby were wonderful for breakfast! Cookies, snacks, mints, and tea were all good ideas. We would love to stay here again.
Absolutely wonderful time. Jan is very knowledgeable of the area and can help you find your way around. Beautiful soul, beautiful place!
