Accommodation Description

  • Kid-friendly
  • Private Barbecue
This secluded log cabin is located on the Sandy River near Brightwood, Oregon, and was built by the celebrated carpenter Henry Steiner in 1939—it's even listed in the Historical Homes Registry. Up to four guests can stay in this bespoke cabin. The bedroom has a charming wooden door with black hinges and a queen-size bed. The glazed doors fill the room with light and open out onto one of the decks. Up the hand carved stairs is the delightful loft with a king-size bed and a twin bed. There is also a TV and a VCR with a selection of wonderful movies.

Glampers will love the vintage decor like the antler chandelier, and the hewn log staircase, as well as the enticing aroma of fir, pine, and cedar in the cabin. The living room is the perfect place to unwind by the fireplace, staring out from the comfortable sofa at the beauty of the forest. The galley style kitchen has everything guests will need to whip up simple vacation meals, even a microwave, and coffee maker. The white appliances and wooden cabinetry contrast nicely with the Navajo-inspired rugs and a stone wall. There are wonderful outdoor spaces to enjoy too; there are two decks and one is built up against the river, to enjoy the soothing sounds of the water. There is also a gas grill and a fire pit outside for cookouts and toasted marshmallows.
