Our Rhododendron home is wrapped in the trees on a private 1.1 acres, bordering National Forest and within walking distance of hiking trails and rivers. There is an outdoor fire pit, a large deck, timber floors cut on-site, high ceilings, and a wood burning stove to keep you warm after a day skiing, hiking, or fishing.

The space

Our house is on a hill, set far back among thick mature trees, mossy logs, lush rhododendron bushes, and a carpet of ferns—or this winter, a lot of snow. The long driveway makes a loop and can accommodate up to three vehicles (no more please). We keep it plowed, so you shouldn't have trouble reaching the house. There is an outdoor fire pit, with flowers all summer long and huckleberries when in season.

The house has two stories plus a basement. There are three bedrooms (one downstairs, two up), and two bathrooms. All our beds have warm, cozy bedding with lots of pillows. Closets are in all three rooms. The bathrooms have towels, soap, shampoo, and conditioner.

There is a kitchen with everything you'll need to prepare meals: pots, pans, coffee maker, microwave, mixing bowls, utensils, etc. You'll find staples like oil, sugar, and popcorn, and the refrigerator has basic condiments—and occasionally ice cream. The dining table sits eight, or you can lower the leaf to make it more intimate.

The great room has a wood burning stove with matching leather couch, love seat, and easy chair. There is dry wood and kindling available.

The glass sliding door opens onto a large deck overlooking the trees, with a propane grill.

There is also a small office if you need a quiet place to get work done. Don't use it too much though! :-)

We have tried to make our home enjoyable for kids and pleasant for their parents. There are some toys in the upstairs closet, and we have a high chair and a pack-n-play if you need them. The kitchen has plastic bibs and kids' cups/plates/bowls. There are also some board games for older kids (and grown-ups), and a collection of books and DVDs.

The house has wifi. Cell phone reception is good (tested for AT&T and Verizon), although it works best toward the front of the house.

The basement has a clothes washer and drier, with detergent.

Group of six adults went to Welches for a half marathon. This home was perfect. Close to our run and restaurants. Home itself was well setup, extremely clean and comfortable. Large deck was perfect to hang out on. Paul was extremely responsive and helped me with multiple details. Great place.

The Hunchback House and property are beautiful and Paul was great to work with! He offered hikes in the area prior to our stay and checked on us while we were there during the record-breaking heat wave. We traveled with our 18 month old and had everything we needed for him - high chair, pack and play, baby gate - which was really convenient. The house was clean and inviting with great access to Mt. Hood.

Nice, clean home in beautiful area. Everything we needed was available; easy to get to Mt. Hood, restaurants and market. Enjoyed our stay very much and our last hike of the trip, which was on Paul's recommendation and I highly recommend too -- Little Zig Zag Falls.

We had a wonderful time at Paul's place. There is plenty of room, and a great deck. They have plenty of ideas for local trips and places to eat out. We actually just relaxed around the property. Everything was clean and worked great. We will definitely visit again.

The place was great, right in the middle of the forest and close to everything Mt Hood has to offer. Would recommend it to anyone looking to get some peace and quiet!
