About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Camp Festivus is a unique 1926 Vintage cabin that has been thoughtfully restored, featuring a stone (Steiner) fireplace, reclaimed barnwood and 6 person hot tub all on a private creekside acre.

Challenge your nerve by swimming in Clear Creek or relax in the hot tub over looking the water. Indulge your inner slug, grab a book and read in the hammock.

Feeling lucky, you can try fishing in the back yard or walk across the street to see if they are biting in the Sandy river. Afterwards you can cook up what you catch at the outdoor fire pit or grill, then fall asleep to the sound of water or gaze at the old growth trees or creek view from every window.

You can throw down your gear or tune your bike or skis in our large heated mudroom, and toast s'mores out back or come inside and listen to Pandora or watch a movie on one of our flat screen TV's. Do you want a bit more privacy for the adults then the kids can go down to the comfy TV room with flat screen, dvd player and stereo, there are tons of pillows and fold out mats to relax, watch movies, or listen to music.

The iron and woodwork and much of the furniture have been custom designed and produced (by the owner) to maximize the beauty of the cabin as well as the surrounding area.

Camp Festivus, a place you can rest(ivus).

About The Owner

Having two children and two dogs of our own we have tried to make our cabin a place for everyone to enjoy. Since we both work in creative fields we felt so lucky to come across a property with such an amazing location as well as a great history that we could put our artistic stamp on and it would only enhance its beauty.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2010

Why The Owner chose Rhododendron

Living in Portland we wanted a place that would be easy for our family to use (don't enjoy long car rides) and that would be something we would all enjoy. The year round access to the outdoors at Mt. Hood has to offer is unbelievable. Our cabin is so close to everything (hiking, biking, skiing, restaurants, Stumptown coffee, etc. But it is still so private and secluded, the best of both worlds.

What makes this cabin unique

Right on Clear Creek, old growth trees, wildflowers, options to eat indoors or outdoors at the custom built picnic table on the deck overlooking the water. Two flat screen TV's, Blu-ray, and 6 person hot tub.

In LOVE!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven stayed at Camp Festivus for Spring Break and fell in love! The cabin is rustic, well maintained and in a great location. Right outside the patio is a view of the stream and the property is far enough away from other cabins to feel as if you are secluded. The views are gorgeous!

We arrived to the cabin around 10 pm, needed to contact Denny to ask a question and he answered immediately! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, with a grocery store 5 minutes away. Skiing is just a 30 minute drive!

Thank you Denny for a wonderful stay, my kids have been begging to go back and will not stop talking about how perfect this vacation was!

Perfect mountain cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Camp Festivus is one of the nicest cabins I’ve stayed at around Mt Hood and I’ve stayed in plenty. It has been nicely restored with a lot of cool custom furniture and vintage fixtures. The fireplace is huge and awesome and makes for a very cozy living area. The kitchen is well appointed with all of the cooking necessities someone would need. Beds are comfortable with nice bedding. The back deck and yard with hot tub and river view really seals it. Definitely plan and renting again.

Beautiful property, even better view

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at the cabin for our annual friend reunion. The fireplace is great for sitting around and catching up and the back porch has such a great view of the water, if it wasn't so cold we would have spent all our time out there! The upstairs room was 'under construction' and not available for us to use which was a bummer, but the downstairs room has plenty of extra space when you use the floor mats. Overall the place is lovely.
