Mt. Hood Cabin Rustica

by Liz Warren

If you are looking for a rustic style log sided cabin for your Mt. Hood getaway that is super affordable, this cabin is a great choice! It's been family owned for a long time and the current owners enjoyed bringing their kids up from knee high in the forest enjoying the outdoors.

Located in Rhododendron, this Mt. Hood National Forest cabin is located on Road 20E which is within a short walking distance to the Zig Zag River or Still Creek. Multiple sleeping areas and a very open floor plan with knotty pine, wood floors and a minimalist experience. An outhouse is steps from the cabin.

Super affordable at $55,000! Close to hiking, skiing and all Mt. Hood activities.

The Freshwater Trust is a non-profit group that has been working with the National Forest and the Bureau of Land Management to restore fish habitat in the Sandy River Basin. The Salmon River and Still Creek, both tributaries to the Sandy River,  once were teaming with Salmon and Steelhead but current numbers are 20% to 40% of what they once were. The ten year project started with the Salmon River but now the group is focusing on Still Creek, one of the most beautiful waterways in the Mt. Hood area.
