Mt. Hood National Forest Cabins

by Liz Warren

One of the most often sought after properties on Mt. Hood are Mt Hood National Forest cabins located mostly above Rhododendron on up to just before the climb to Government Camp along Hiway 26. These cabins were mostly built in the 1930’s and 1940s by Portlanders who wanted a summer getaway thus the term “Summer Homes” used by the Forest Service.

Since that time the cabins have turned into much more than “Summer Homes”. Many skiers who want a weekend getaway close to Mt. Hood’s ski slopes find these cabins the perfect affordable option compared to the higher priced condos and chalets in Government Camp. 

Cabin sales make up around 17% of market sales in 2012. The cabins are anywhere from rustic  hand crafted cabins to completely remodeled and updated cabins fully insulated with gourmet kitchens and hardwood floors.  

The best part about National Forest cabins are the locations. Several waterways meander through the woods including Still Creek, Camp Creek and the Zig Zag River which crosses both sides of Hiway 26. Waterfront cabins are some of the most popular for buyers. The pristine forested setting   and regulated ownership requirements of the permit keep this area one of the most beautiful, undisturbed and anesthetic experience you can have on Mt. Hood.
