Crystal Creek Cabin is located under large Cedar trees on our 80 acre property adjoining the Mt. Hood National Forest. Sit on the covered porch no matter the weather and enjoy the sounds and scenes of nature! This is the ideal place to come, unwind and just be. Inside the cabin is a wood stove for keeping warm during the cold months. There are 2 twin beds as well as a sleeping loft that can accommodate 2 sleepers on a Queen mattress. This is an off grid cabin...however we have a Honda generator that can be used for lights and electrical plug-ins or go without electricity and use the lantern and candles provided. There is also a fire ring and sitting area outside for campfires as well as a large pick-nick table. The cabin is constructed from local trees we've harvested using a sawmill as well as Redwood and Douglas Fir salvaged from an old water tower deconstructed locally on the mountain.  This is the perfect rustic, quiet and private retreat for all seasons.

*Keep in mind there is a short uphill 5-10 minute walk to the cabin from where you'll park (pack accordingly).  Please arrive during daylight hours or plan accordingly (headlamps or flashlights) if possible as the path to the cabin is sparsely lit.

No plumbing inside the cabin. A water cooler is provided for drinking water. We also have a water spigot outside but water is not drinkable.

When you make your booking please contact me to let me know if you intend to bring your dog. :) We have 2 very friendly retrievers. Usually 1-2 may come and say hello. 

*Please only bring your dogs if they are comfortable around other animals and people.*

I have nothing bad to say about our stay at Crystal creek cabin. It was absolutely beautiful! Rachel was in touch with us and communicated quickly/clearly. The place is clean and has everything you need and nothing you don't. We were "THOSE" people who missed the turn despite Rachel's clear instructions and ended up in their driveway (sorry again!). Their pups paid us a visit and were very friendly (my daughter kept calling for them to come back throughout our stay ha). So envious of this little paradise. Can't wait to come again.

We had an incredible stay at Crystal Creek Cabin. We loved the sound of rushing water as we were falling asleep, the waterfall (Just a short walk away), and lounging in the hammock. There were lights down the pathways and automatic lights on the house and outhouse that made me feel safe walking outside at night. They also provided so much - headlamps, fire starter, wood, first aid kit, mugs, and more. We’re already talking about when we can come back.

The cabin is a perfect getaway. It’s gorgeous, the cabin, the creek, the location. We had a great time. We relaxed by the fire pit, laid in the hammock, and hiked to the waterfall. This place it perfectly equipped with items you may need. There is a generator for lights but we opted not to use it. We packed heavy, unsure of our plans away from the cabin. Once we arrived at the cabin, we packed only what we needed in our day packs to walk to the cabin with overnight essentials.

Rachel’s cabin exceeded our wildest expectations, it’s such a beautiful, magical hideaway with us - and perfectly located for hitting the slopes!

Great find! Good directions and fast communication with the host. Friendly dogs greeted us upon arrival and even led the way up the short incline to the cabin. The cabin was perfect- spotless, inviting, and full of charm. We had everything we needed (wood, matches, drinking water, cozy beds, and a composting toilet) and everything we didn’t (Wi-Fi, electricity, and television). 10/10 would recommend, 11/10 coming back again!

My dog was diagnosed with cancer, again. So I decided to take him on trips so he can enjoy his last months. He loves nature and hiking, however hiking for him is not an option.

Crystal Creek Cabin was a perfect place to stay and have my sweet boy enjoy nature. I absolutely love the place and so did my dogs.

The place is well set up and very clean. Also thanks so much to the host for allowing dogs to stay in the cabin.

I do recommend this place, so lovely.

Only thing I will say it was very hard to find the place at night. We couldn’t see anything. No numbers or any of the details that was mentioned in the written directions. A bit more light will very useful.

This place is just amazing. For a solo guy like myself, with three kids and a dog, this was a life saver during the holiday school break.

This was our first glamping experience. So many thoughtful details that made it easier for us: provided firewood, kindling and tea kettle for the stove were a delight. We opted not to use the generator and instead used the candles in the cabin when the sun went down. We never got too cold though it got near freezing thanks to the lovely quilts on the beds. The cabin keeps heat well. Trail in and out is well maintained with excellent directions. We felt secluded, yet an easy hour drive from PDX. We loved it here and are so grateful! Would like to visit in the warmer months to take advantage of the stream.
