Our Top Picks
Best on the Coast: Salacia Chalet
1 sofa bed
Take in all the retro vibes in this renovated 1960s A-frame cabin right on the ocean in Gleneden Beach, near Lincoln City.
The cabin's owners have kept true to its midcentury roots with the decor, though many classical cabin elements like wood paneling and a wood-burning stove remain. The interior of the cabin feels open and airy thanks to the massive A-frame window and its open plan. Meanwhile, the minimalist furniture adds a level of sophistication and style to your stay.
Salicia Chalet’s star feature is the wrap-around deck with a hot tub, from which you can watch sunsets over the expansive water and even catch sight of a passing whale.
Best Lake: Waterfront Woodland Lodge
1 bunk bed
1 sofa bed
Outdoor dining room
If you’re in love with the water, you won’t find a better vacation rental in Oregon – a state whose natural beauty is why most tourists visit – than this lakefront lodge. Not only is it located right on 65-acre Lake Lytle in Rockaway Beach, but it’s also just a five-minute walk from the ocean.
The two-bedroom cabin has a rustic-meets-retro vibe, with a lofty wood-lined living area built around a fireplace. The living area is brightened by a wall of windows, opening up onto a patio with direct beach access. The rental even comes with beach supplies like chairs and umbrellas to make oceanside relaxation as easy as possible.
When you’ve had enough of water activities, drive 20 minutes south to visit the Tillamook Cheese Factory or 20 minutes north to the village of Manzanita for shopping and dining, or local art at the Hoffman Center For The Arts. Lake Lytle is also home to museums like the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum and restaurants like Rick's Roadhouse for diner food.
Best in Bend: Sunriver Mountain Retreat
2 futon beds
Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic and Recreation Center (SHARC) passes
Located in the exclusive Sunriver resort community just outside of Bend, Oregon, this four-bedroom cabin has everything you’ll need for a fun-filled vacation in the lush Deschutes National Forest. Thanks to the wealth of natural beauty, you can spend your days hiking, biking, skiing, fishing, golfing, or indulging in pretty much any other outdoor activity you’re interested in, no matter the season.
On top of a grill and two bicycles to make local tours easy, the cabin comes with passes to the Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic and Recreation Center, a prized commodity in town. At the rec center, you'll be able to splash around in the lazy river, enjoy the waterslides, or just suntan by the pool, so it's the perfect way to spend a summer's day.
After your exciting adventures, relax in the cabin’s hot tub, or drive 20 minutes into Bend, one of the hippest cities in Oregon, for some shopping and dining, or visit the High Desert Museum to see the history of western expansion and pioneers.
Best Mountain: Dog-Friendly Government Camp Ski Cabin
1 sofa bed
The warm, brightly decorated retreat features a lofty living room with a wood-burning stove, two cozy bedrooms, and a chef’s kitchen. There's also a grill and patio for you to cook out on, or just relax and watch the sunset from.
The cabin is pet-friendly as well, although you'll have to pay a small fee if you want to bring along your four-legged friends. Plus, there's plenty of outdoor areas here for your pet to roam around in.
This cabin is an ideal vacation spot for skiers and snowboarders, since the Timberline Ski Lodge, Mt. Hood Meadows, and SkiBowl are all within a 20-minute drive of this cabin. Of course, that also means there’s great hiking and biking in the summer when the slopes thaw and the ski mountains turn into hiking adventures.
Best for Families: Luxury Lakeside Cabin
1 sofa bed
Sitting on a massive 640 private acres with wooded trails for hiking, biking, and snowshoeing, this cabin also has prime lake access, with its own swimming dock and watersports equipment like kayaks and stand-up paddleboards available for use.
Back at the house, a hot tub, fire pit, horseshoe pit, and cornhole boards. Just note that Wi-Fi is not the fastest and there’s no TV here—the cabin is a great place to disconnect.
This luxurious rustic-chic lodge on the shores of Tumalo Lake, located 12 miles from Bend, a city that is one of the best destinations for families visiting the state, has the makings of a great family-fun getaway with amenities for all ages. Right nearby, kids will have access to Smith Rock State Park, perfect for a day of spent outside, and all the shopping and tasty food you can imagine, from restaurants like Deschutes Brewery for American food like steak and hamburgers, or El Sancho Taco Shop for Mexican street-style food.
Best for Large Groups: Dual Cabins in Government Camp
2 gas grills
Pet friendly (extra fee)
With space for 30 guests across two separate but adjacent cabins, this rental is perfect for big groups. The larger of the two houses has a massive living room with a TV for gatherings, or you can convene on the patio, that has two gas grills (perfect for a grilling competition) and a hot tub big enough for a whole group to relax in.
Decorated in a classic Oregon cabin style, built entirely of wood and walled with logs, the cabin is sure to offer an authentic Pacific Northwest campout.
Located in Government Camp, Oregon, a small unincorporated town located at the base of Mt. Hood – a skiers paradise – the surroundings offer direct access to Oregon's natural beauty, surrounded by dense Douglas Fir forests and some of the biggest mountain peaks in the state. On top of that, the property is right next to picturesque Glade Trail for hiking or snowshoeing on the slopes of Mt. Hood.
Best for Romance: Wonderful Cabin in Govi
Cozy up to a loved one on the comfy sofa near the fireplace in this quaint cabin in Government Camp. Built in a classic log cabin style, the rental offers a romantic retreat from daily life, with its cozy antique furniture and warm atmosphere.
After the day’s activities, whether that be biking or snowboarding, relax and recover in the hot tub on the covered deck. Once you're done exploring outside for the day, the cabin offers a warm respite from the wilderness, with a large fireplace in the center of the living room.
Though it’s within walking distance of the restaurants, bars, shops, and other sites in town, like the Mt. Hood Cultural Center and the popular après-ski bar Ratskeller, this rental feels delightfully secluded, making it great for a romantic vacation. Everything – from the ski slopes and hiking trails of Mt. Hood to the water activities on Trillium Lake – is just a short drive away.
Best Tiny House: Studio with a View to Mt. Hood
Retractable window wall
It’s all about the incredible view at this tiny house in Sandy (right in between Portland and Mt. Hood), thanks to its massive windows facing the sublime peaks of Oregon.
The thoughtfully designed cabin doesn’t feel small at all with floor-to-ceiling windows that open completely to create an indoor-outdoor space. Instead of a TV in the living room, guests are encouraged to take in the views and reconnect with nature. The minimally designed furniture keeps the space open and large enough for two guests to comfortably relax.
While the rental is located on 23 private acres, it’s a mile from Highway 26 and therefore a short drive into downtown Sandy, known locally as being the gateway to Mt. Hood. The town is a ski and snowboard pit-stop with ski bars and casual food like pizza and tacos.
Best Luxury: Rooster’s Coop
This 4,500 square feet rental's grey painted walls, stone and wood trimmings, and indoor fireplace harken back to a cabin aesthetic while remaining contemporary and updated.
On top of full entertainment with a TV and Wi-Fi, you can also take leisurely walks through the beautiful grounds, which you’ll share with some horses, cows, and – yes – chickens. The cabin even has access to its own backyard pond, and the grounds have access to the forest nearby.
Just over a 30-minute drive from Portland, the luxurious lodge in Newberg is the perfect place from which to explore the famous Willamette Valley wine region. The city is home to several wine stores and tasting tours, such as Longplay Wines and Et Fille Wines.
Of course, beyond the calling of the wineries, there’s no reason to leave the house at all: The well-appointed space has amenities ranging from stone fireplaces to a game room with a pool table and a bar to a hot tub.
