Our newly remodeled Suite has a cozy, welcoming, new, clean mountain lodgy feel. Relax in the home theater room and chose from Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube and more. Also a DVD player. TV's in bedrooms are 'Smart TV's' as well.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wondeful time. Great home base location for Mt Hood adventures. Dawn is a great landlord. Before we arrived, she stayed in contact with me and gave me recommendations to eateries in the area and information about ski rentals and gear. She made provisions that we didn’t expect...there was hot apple cider and brownies upon arrival. Yummy! We felt very at home and would definitely rent this property again. I highly recommend this property for your visit to Mt. Hood. Very close to Ski Bowl and Timberline ski slopes. After a full day of snow boarding, my teenage boys took full advantage of “veging” in front of the big screen home theater-system. I cannot say enough about the Bears-den property. Way way way better then staying at a hotel. It gave us that mountain cabin experience and made our first winter vacation to Mt Hood very memorable. Thank you Dawn. 😊?

Very quiet nice place

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice and quiet place to stay, It was clean and very accommodating. Here you get away from all the hustle bustle and just relax. We had no problems with our stay, Dawn responded very quickly to my text and also checked on our ETA and had the place cozy warm with warm tea on. Loved that Dawn smelled so good. Thank you

A great little get-away just off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

This is such a nice spot! The owner was very accommodating and friendly. Our suite was comfortable, cosy, and felt like home away from home. We were greeted with some homemade goodies and some warm cider simmering in the crock pot.

All of the little extra touches, like essential oils, snacks, robes, and comfy furniture give this place a warm, inviting feel. We can't wait for our next visit!

So cozy!!

  • 5 of 5

Dawn made our stay super comfortable from before our trip to after. She was quick to respond to any questions I asked and gave me detailed information of activities, transportations, places to eat etc...I love the location, accommodation and amenities(plush towels and robes), snacks(My boys thought you are a saint for having top ramen!), and OILS!! I am an oiler and it was a treat to have so many blend of oils available!! I would love to go back and recommend this place to my friends.

Very cozy and great host!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful time at this cozy bungalow! Loved the big screen. Host did an incredible job of making our stay special and making sure we were taken care of in every way. Location is just about 20 minutes from skiing, but near groceries, restaurant, etc. I recommend this location to anyone looking for a little getaway.
