Scenic View Lodge is well named as the view from every window on the bluff side of the house, decks, hot tub and sauna are of Mt. Hood and the Sandy River Valley. The view is stunning and you can see mountains in Washington, including Mt. Adams, the oxbow turn of the Sandy River 400 feet below the house, and the massive Mt. Hood! We had a large family reunion and used this place as well as our own house nearby. The home was wonderfully comfortable, well-appointed with all our large group needed for a great weekend, and the hot tub and sauna were enjoyed by all. Rodney and Hannah are very helpful hosts. There is great mountain biking nearby at Sandy Ridge. Some of us went 30 minutes up the road to the snow on Mt. Hood. Others drove 45 minutes into Portland for dinner and a show. This place is centrally located so that your group can enjoy the forests and mountains of Mt. Hood and the Columbia River Gorge, as well as the cultural and big city offerings in Portland, without driving very far. Our group pictures remind us of what a great view and accommodations we had there. We will be back!
