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.

Love Bon Fir! Perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second winter stay at Bon Fir, and we loved it as much the second time around. It is just cozy and perfect for two. A fire in the wood stove, records on the turntable, perfection. The hot tub felt great after a day of snowshoeing. We also love the Skyway BBQ place, great food and drinks. The only issue was there was no door on the oven, so we had to modify our cooking plans, but it didn't cause too much distress, but hopefully that's not a permanent change! Overall, it is an ideal place to stay. We are hoping to come back during the summer and try a different sort of adventure!

Owner's Response: The oven is now fixed! Sorry about that. I hope it didn't mess up your dinner plans too much. The hinges broke and it took me a few days to get the replacement parts because the oven is from canada.

My husband and I were moving back to America after living overseas, we wanted to get married and go on a honeymoon right after. We ended up needing to change our date not once, but several times and Martin obliged us for all of our changes. He even worked with us on our budget so that we could have the honeymoon we wanted. His house is beautiful, the space is perfect for a couple and really set the mood for a romantic get away. We even ran out of wood with a week left of our stay and contacted Martin who quickly had someone bring over some more. We definitely want to come back here again and highly highly recommend it! We also can't say enough good things about how great Martin was to work with!

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.

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.

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.
