About Steve and Monika

We're a couple of accountants with two little girls and a boy that enjoy getting away from our busy urban life. We've searched for the perfect place for quite a while and finally found it!

Steve and Monika purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Steve and Monika chose Oregon

This area is beautiful and as interesting in the summer as it is in the winter months. We wanted a place that's a short drive from where we live. Being an hour away from Portland this drive is a breeze whether you're getting here Friday evening or heading straight to work on Monday morning. After a pretty long search we knew right away that this cabin/cottage was different from anything else that we had looked at.

What makes this cottage unique

The location is amazing, right on the river, with plenty of space around the house for kids to play. Easy to access from the road, but private enough. The house feels fresh and bright, not like some of the dark and moist cabins we looked at during our search.

Magical river getaway- Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Could not be happier! Everything tidy and well maintained, comfortable, and such a peaceful setting. Close to so many fun activities, but why leave? The river, sand, rocks, birds, are all right out your door. My ten year old was so happy with our vacation he decided to sweep off the whole front deck before we left "to say thank you." : ) This is our 3rd summer at this house and we completely love it! Only request is maybe a bit brighter lighting from the bedside lamps for evening reading, but really, there is nothing to complain about here- it's a total gem! Thanks for having us!

Great place.

  • 5 of 5

This place is the quintessential summer vacation cabin. Right on the river, a great new swing for the kids, fire pit to sit around and roast marshmallows in the evenings. The cabin itself is cozy. Bunk bed for the kids (don't all kids love bunk beds?) Wood burning stove with river rock mantel. It's the kind of place you want to own so that you and your family can visit frequently and you can build amazing memories for your kids to remember forever.

It was neat, clean and tidy. I would definitely recommend it and should we decide to go back to Mt.Hood again, we will check to see if it's available!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fantastic experience at the Shifting River Cabin. It was quiet, peaceful and cozy. It felt very private and we so enjoyed hanging out by the fire pit, watching the river flow by. The bed was comfortable, wifi and netflix worked well and the kitchen was functional. Overall, we truly enjoyed our time at the cabin and hope to come back some day.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at this property for 4 days. It is true that the surroundings make this property but the cabin is also beautiful.

The views from most windows are amazing. The owners have it fully stocked.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you could want to make for meals.

I have stayed at many VRBO properties and I can say this is one of my favorites.

It was quite warm when we were there but very comfortable for me.

Close to many outdoor attractions a lot right outside door.

Owners very receptive and answer questions quickly.

Would definitely stay again.
