Getaway House PDX


Slowing down is one of the most challenging things for me. There is always something to clean, something to organize, someone to make food for, and the list goes on.

Getting away from it all is so important sometimes. Moreover, getting away from technology is a must!

Getaway House is the perfect, dreamy location for just that.

Getaway House is a modern cabin. It’s a minimalist retreat. These vacation rentals are the perfect getaway from the everyday hustle and grind.

The Drive

From the Portland/Vancouver area, it’s a two hour drive to the base of Mt. Adams. The drive there is beautiful. If you drive on 84, be sure to stop at Multnomah Falls, the Bonneville Dam, and grab a bite to eat in Hood River.

Once you arrive to your cabin, you’ll find yourself without service. Feel free to put your phone in the lockbox and unwind.

The space is small, with all the necessities. A mini kitchen to make meals, a comfortable bed, a table, and an enormous window with a beautiful view.

It felt so nice to be without service and to just connect with my family. It’s amazing how many distractions there are in every day life, and so important to leave those behind sometimes.

Spending Thanksgiving at Getaway House PDX, without service was definitely unconventional. There was no turkey dinner, although we did see some wild turkey. No stuffing, no gravy, no extended family (although we did miss them all), but we we had an amazing quiet time.

I for one cannot wait to go back.
