About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Hot tub, Record Player, Close to River (Sleeps 2)

The 'Bon Fir Cabin' is a beautifully restored 1930's cabin located in the foothills of Mount Hood. It is just 43 Miles from the Portland airport, less than a mile from the Mount Hood Wilderness Area, and a three minute walk from the Zig Zag River. The original native fir floors, cedar siding and vaulted ceiling throughout help it retain it's historic charm. The cabin is fully equipped with a modernized kitchen, cozy wood stove, a queen bed, and a four person hot tub. The Bon Fir sits on a large wooded lot with plenty of room to relax.

The cabin has only one bedroom with a queen bed. The bathroom has a full-size front loading washer and dryer, and an antique clawfoot tub with a shower. The four person jetted hot tub is built into the deck to soak your bones after a long day of fun.

About Martin

I was born in Oregon and I like all kinds of outdoor activities. I hike, bike, surf, run, rock climb, ski, fish, raft, and camp. I write and play music. Nothing is better than great friends, great beer, and great food. I live in Portland, Oregon. Other than managing cabins, I work full time as an electrical engineer at Intel designing the worlds most advanced computer chips. I'm involved in several community gardens in NE Portland.

Martin purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Martin chose Zigzag

I bought this cabin because I wanted a place close to Mount Hood and I love the outdoors. As soon as I walked inside I fell in love. The dark wood paneling and the vaulted cedar ceilings give the cabin a beautiful historic feel. The deck is huge and the hot tub is a great bonus.

What makes this cabin unique

I like to get a fire blazing in the wood stove and play games with friends. The tall trees and large lot give a sense of space that contrasts with my otherwise urban life. I like to play old records on the record player.

Second time we have stayed there, love this place

  • 5 of 5

The only change that would be nice is to have a fan available. It was very warm (95 degrees).

Owner's Response: Thanks Kirk! Sorry about the heat. It usually stays about 5-10 degrees cooler up at the cabin than it is in Portland but this was a very hot summer! I put a fan up there at your suggestion. Thanks.

A great escape!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect and exactly as described. We enjoyed the wood stove and the hot tub on the deck. The local Zig Zag Cafe was a great place to get breakfast each morning before we ventured out for our hike. Would definitely recommend this place and hope to stay there again!

Beautiful Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Bon Fir Cabin for our 2nd Anniversary trip. The cabin is beautiful and Homey. During the day we explored all that rural Oregon has to offer. At night we watched movies, listened to records, dined on the patio, and soaked in the hot tub. We stayed 5 night, and it still wasn't long enough. Come stay at Bon Fir. You'll fall in love all over again.

Perfect cabin getaway with lots of outdoor activities to enjoy.

  • 4 of 5

We made many special memories during our trip. The cabin is secluded among large trees and the sound of the creek. Perfect way to enjoy nature and get away from it all.

Falling apart and in need of major repairs

  • 1 of 5

A short time before we were scheduled to arrive I received a message from the homeowner. He explained that we wouldn't be able to use the hot tub because the pump had broke 4 days earlier. He said he would give us a $200 credit or he would give us a full refund and we could find other place to stay. Knowing that I wasn't going to be able to find another cabin on such short notice I took the $200 credit. When we arrived at the cabin later that day I opened the door to find condensation inside on all the windows. I figured maybe it had just been closed up for awhile and needed to be aired out. I started opening windows and realized there are no screens so in airing out the place we also filled it full of bugs....oh well just bugs nothing too bad. The next morning I woke up to squirrels running around in the ceiling.....they've chewed there way through the flashing around the chimney and there is a small herd of them living in the ceiling. The picture shown in the add is not the current condition of the property. The roof is rotting because of the 4" of debris rotting on top of it due to lack of maintenance. Around the house the vegetation has grown up so much there is no airflow to allow any of the structure to dry. I spent 3 days at this cabin with a stuffy nose and minor headache........MOLD! I'd love to see an air quality test from inside this structure. Between the rodents feces in the ceiling and mold growing in the walls/roof I'm sure the tests would scare anyone. This place looks quaint in the pictures posted but is really just a dump.

Owner's Response: Hi Shawn, I'm sorry you didn't have a great experience. I do my best to keep the property in good shape. The hot tub is now fixed. Sometimes things break. I will check for the squirrels right away. I think a bathroom fan will help with the condensation. The original windows swing out when you open them, so I don't think screens would work. Usually I keep them open during the day and close them around dinner time. Also thanks for the idea of pruning back the vegetation around the house. Always good to have more airflow.

Perfect mini-vacation

  • 5 of 5

This cabin offered us everything we had hoped for. We soaked in the hot tub, drank whiskey front of the fire, and listened to several records. The kitchen provided us with all the amenities we needed to make a killer dinner. (The oil had run out though.) Hopefully we will return someday!
