Little Yew Lodge - Romantic 1920s Riverfront Cabin with Vintage/Modern decor

Details

Home Description

Historic Charm, Modern Amenities and Pet-friendly

Escape to a unique gem nestled in the forest overlooking the Sandy River, perfect for a romantic getaway. Built by two Alaskan prospectors in the 1920s, the main cabin is the only cordwood cabin on Mt. Hood. This construction uses log slices in its walls, giving Little Yew Lodge its endearing polka dot exterior. Rough-hewn timber beams and an original handbuilt fireplace maintain its historical allure, while the décor is updated with a vintage/modern sensibility.

*Note: one night stays are allowed when reserving within a 1 week window or when only a one night stay is available (i.e. when the surrounding nights are already booked).

Enjoy drinks on the deck or around the firepit, both overlooking the river and surrounded by 100-year old Doug Fir, Cedar and Yew trees. A charcoal grill and picnic table allow for al fresco meals accompanied by the sound of rushing water.

Once inside, you’ll want to cozy up on the Chesterfield in front of the fireplace, assembled by hand with local river rock. The names of the two prospectors who first warmed themselves by this beauty, Bob and Brian, are carved into the mortar. Play a record from a varied collection that includes jazz, classical, 80’s and afrobeat. The armoire holds games from Jenga to Settlers of Catan.

Climb the handcarved wooden staircase to the loft where you’ll find a 37” flat screen TV set up to stream movies, news, sports, etc. via Roku, an HD DVD player, movies, and books. A queen bed serves as additional sleeping or just more area on which to lounge.

Though there are many restaurants nearby, the kitchen is stocked for cabin-cooked meals. You’ll enjoy the use of All-Clad and cast iron pots and pans, Wusthof knives, spices/sugar, and extras such as the:

fondue pot,

crockpot,

KitchenAid mixer,

dutch oven,

onion soup bowls,

roasting pan,

bakeware, and more.

Coffee lovers you can start your day using the espresso machine, french press or classic drip. Complimentary roasted coffee beans and a selection of teas are provided.

Eventually it’s time to retire to the adjacent cottage where you’ll find the bathroom, featuring a rainfall shower head, and the plush nest of your bedroom. The queen bed, with memory foam topper and Hungarian goose down comforter, ensures an indulgent night’s rest.

All of Mt. Hood’s attractions are close by – summer and fall guests can embark on classic hikes, kayak and visit innumerable fishing spots. Winter and spring guests are a quick drive to ski resorts (15 mins to Ski Bowl; 35 mins to Mt. Hood Meadows).

Extra notes:

Dogs are welcomed with an additional $10 nightly fee (capped at $20).

Firewood is provided.

Down-alternative bedding is available for guests with allergies.

A required 7% county/state sales tax will be added to all reservations.

Special cabin in the woods

Had a wonderful stay at Little Yew. The owners provided several personal touches to make our stay so special -- such as tea and coffee set up in the bedroom suite and plenty of firewood for the fire pit. Had many plans to hike but spent one of our days sitting by the river near the cabin contemplating the universe as we couldn't tear ourselves away from the quiet.

A perfect getaway

This is the third time we have stayed at the Little Yew lodge and it did not disappoint. As always, Rebecca and Peter ensured the cabin in well equipped with everything needed to make our stay comfortable and cozy. The cabin is close to some fantastic hiking, Timberline Lodge (a must see), as well as grocery stores and restaurants. We had a mix of weather during our week, and the Little Yew was a perfect place spend both rainy and sunny days. We look forward to returning again.
