The Cedar Shack is a beautifully crafted tiny cabin curated just for you.  Just ten minutes from downtown White Salmon, it has sweeping views of Mount Adams and the surrounding valley.  It has a lofted bed, breakfast nook, cooking space, and a wood burning stove for cold nights. You are welcome to bring a tent or another vehicle to sleep up to two additional people.

THE NOOK

Comfortable for seating four adults, the nook is a great place to hang out and play a card game, or serve a tiny-home cooked meal.  Cuddle up with blankets and hot drinks.  We also keep a large doggie bed stuffed in one of the booth seats for your furry friend. 

The big drawers are great for storing your weekender bag and hangers by the door organize your coats.

KITCHEN

Everything you need to cook with a propane oven and stove-top.  The Cedar Shack is stocked with a basic pot, cast-iron skillet, small baking sheet, pie pan, colander, tea kettle, plates, bowls, cups, mugs, flat wear, mixing bowls, Chimex-style pour-over coffee maker + filters, knives, cutting board, cork screw, and scissors.  We also provide our guests with complimentary organic black tea, organic green tea, organic free trade coffee, organic olive oil, and salt + pepper grinders.  For dish washing, a new sponge is provided for each reservation.

LOFT

The comfy queen bed is nestled in the loft with a Buffy cloud comforter and pillows, Parachute linen duvet cover, and fresh sheets for every stay.  Enjoy slow mornings with the small collection of books. Windows provide natural light, fresh air, and forest sounds.

PRIVATE FIRE PIT, PICNIC TABLE, & LOUNGERS

Outside the front door of the Cedar Shack are two wooden loungers positioned towards the Mount Adams view.  Relax, sip, and star gaze. To the side of the Cedar Shack is your own private fire pit and picnic table.  Stainless steel pints are provided for fireside sipping.  Roast some s'mores and enjoy the stars. Fire bans in Klickitat County typically start in June and last through October.  It is your responsibility to adhere to all fire bans.  There is a water spigot and hose adjacent to the fire pit.

MOUNTAIN VIEW BENCH + TRAILS

Explore the surrounding forest!  We are on 15 acres with two adjacent sides of the property backing up to hundreds of acres of logging land.  Old logging roads wind trails through the woods and along the ridge for mountain views.  The bench and trails are shared with our Klickitat Treehouse guests.  

THE WELL HOUSE

The Well House is located near the treehouse guest parking.  This is a shared building with the Klickitat Treehouse guests.  It includes a sink, toilet, and outdoor shower with shampoo, conditioner, and castile soap.  Bath towels are provided for indicated number of guests.  There is also a washer + dryer with septic-safe laundry soap and stain remover.  Guest laundry hours are before 11am or after 4pm as house cleaners use the washer + dryer between 11am-4pm. 

RECOMMENDED ITEMS TO BRING

-Head lamps: There are twinkle lights strung outside that provide nice lighting at night.  Headlamps are always helpful when camping!

-Kindling and firewood: We provide a small amount of dry wood for starting a fire in the wood burning stove to heat the tiny house, but we recommend bringing dry wood for the outdoor fire pit (or see what you can pick up around the property)! 

-Camp chairs

-Camp cooler

-Camera 

-Extra blankets, sleeping bag, and warm clothes: if you are someone who runs cold or does not want to wake up in the night to re-stoke the wood burning stove then bring extra gear! It can get cold, especially in the winter.

Our stay at the cedar shack was fantastic. The cutest cabin was a perfect get away. So Cozy and well designed. The kitchen is nicely equipped to make a great meal. The table is good for hanging and games. The fire warmed place up in minutes. And the bed very comfortable. We’d recommend it to anyone looking to for a relaxing escape to peace and calm in the forest.

My girlfriend and I needed a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of Portland and decided to stay at the Cedar Shack. What a great decision! It was exactly as amazing as all the reviews described, we felt very safe, Colin and Taryn gave us AWESOME recommendations (falls creek falls is a great hike and if you have the chance grab brunch at white salmon baking co), and we had an overall spectacular trip. The shack is beautiful and has all of the welcoming touches. The twinkle lights are very sweet, and the outdoor area and fireplace are beautiful even though we couldn’t use the fireplace due to a fire ban. Thank you Colin and Taryn!

Two special nights spent in a super-fun-cozy-little home. Everything was clean, with lots of wood for the woodstove and all you would need for two people in terms of cookware and all the things. There’s great little hiking trails and awesome views of Mt. Adams right out the front door on a clear day. Would definitely come back!

What a lovely way to spend labor day weekend! Couldn’t have asked for a sweeter setup. And the loft bed was particularly comfy which was a welcomed surprise! We can’t wait to come back again, especially when the tree house is up and running. Definitely recommend Taryn & Colin’s lovely little cedar shack in the woods for anyone looking to escape the city and relax in nature for a few days :)

Thank you for allowing us to use your space!

Overall, would most definitely recommend this spot to anyone interested in a picturesque outdoor adventure. The tiny home on wheels, the privacy, setting & view, lack of cell service — A+. Can’t wait for the treehouse on the property to be complete; will be back!

The only bummer, which I discovered only after arriving, is that there’s a fire ban in the area and therefore no open-air fires allowed. Apparently, the ban is common for the season and will likely last all summer.

There is so much to love about this property. It is situated within the trees in a secluded and safe area with an awesome view of Mount Adams and is about a 10 minute or less drive from White Salmon. There are bistro lights that hang around the camp creating a beautiful ambiance and cozy spot to hang by the fire. The Cedar Shack itself is extremely nice! So many adorable details in the small house, You have a bed up top with a few bars to climb up with, a table that can easily fit four playing cards down below. Water is located in the kitchen area and it also has a small oven and cooktop along with a small wood stove that would keep the small space warm all evening long. There is an outhouse near the Cedar Shack that is very clean and easy to locate. Colin and Taryn were great hosts with awesome recommendations for White Salmon activities and places to eat and drink. You can tell how much care was taken with this property. I really can't recommend this Hipcamp enough, we will definitely be back!

A great book selection you can peruse through at any time. All the special details that make this place feel so homey. We still argue about who ended up winning this game. Tiny homes are the best homes.

I had such an amazing stay in this tiny home! Well-decorated interior and homey feel, as well as lots of privacy and nature to yourself. There’s a bench with a straight shot of the mountain and all the trees and it was truly a nature lover’s paradise. Would recommend 10/10. Very therapeutic and restorative, as well as close enough to city to go charge phone and what not.
