Beautiful home. Excellent location for hiking and local fun. A very quiet setting, with a short walk to the river. David was an excellent host, he helped us plan local activities. The house was super clean and had many amenities. A hidden gem of a place.

The Sandy River Ski House is spacious, clean, and quiet in a beautiful wooded setting near the river. Great proximity to lots of hikes and snow sports. David was quickly responsive to any questions, and had lots of information about local attractions available at the house. We will definitely visit again, and would highly recommended!

Spacious home. Always very clean and neat with modern amenities (including wifi). This cabin sits on a beautiful wooded property that goes all the way to the banks of the Sandy river. I have been up on multiple occasions with my girlfriend and we both agree that ot is the perfect weekend retreat and is also close to many mountain attractions (skiing hiking, swimming etc.). Also kids and pets are welcomed, which makes it the perfect spot for the whole family. Thanks liamspapa!!

The perfect family getaway. Beautiful woodsy location near MT Hood. Right on the river. Cozy wood burning fireplace and huge kitchen. Lots of room to be together or find peaceful space. Going back every year!

Easy drive from Portland and perfect place to launch from to all the mountain points of interests: hiking, skiing, lakes, rivers, Timberline lodge, as well as close to plenty of good restaurants and grocery store. House is spacious, clean, comfortable, and well equipped. We enjoyed the surrounding river sounds and trees, as well as some afternoon sun on the patio.

We had a great visit. The house is conveniently located near the ski resorts and the river. The house has a well equipped kitchen and three bedrooms with very comfortable beds. I will definitely go back and will recommend it to friends for a great winter or summer getaway!

Only 15 minute drive to Ski bowl. Restaurants and market super close. 3 bedrooms and lots of space. Great dvd collection to enjoy after an active day on the mountain is an added bonus. Quiet neighborhood and easy access from highway 26 make this a perfect location for exploring all of Mt Hood. David's place is an ideal spot for both winter or summer activities on Mt.Hood and I highly recommend it!!!

Very clean, comfortable house. Great set up for two couples or larger groups. We loved the washer/dryer and nice space to hang wet clothing. The kitchen is large enough to "hang out" in with plenty of utensils, cookware etc. This is our second stay and we plan to be back again next year!
