Your Stay in Rhododendron Starts Here

Rhododendron, Oregon began as a wayside stop along the way from The Dalles on the Columbia to the expanding town of Portland on the Willamette River. The trail, called the “Barlow Road” opened much of northwestern Oregon to settlement. Today, the community of Rhododendron serves as a getaway for travelers with many vacation rentals tucked away amongst the trees, creeks, rivers, and spiking hills of the Cascades.

Area cabins and rental homes in Rhododendron are sophisticated and welcoming! Book anytime of year for a fun and unique Oregon getaway.

The area is ideal for the visitor that wants to stop, rest, and explore. Visitors to Rhododendron find themselves relaxing under old growth trees, along bubbling streams, or isolated on a high hill with panoramic vistas of verdant forests, fertile valleys, and, of course, magnificent Mount Hood.

Visitors of all interests find an immense amount of activities in Rhododendron. Those interested in history can view a replica of the toll gate for the old Barlow Road anchored between two 100-year-old maples. Climbing the road makes you realize the travails wagons, animals, and families went through to make the journey to the fertile Willamette Valley.

Guided tours abound in the area. You can venture to the slopes of Mount Hood and Timberline Lodge, a classic style winter lodge built by the WPA and CCC during the Great Depression. Tours for plant lovers reveal the rich bounty of color that surrounds them during the spring, especially the native Rhododendrons, from which all other Rhododendrons descend, and the blaze of colors that proclaim the fall season.

During the winter, guides offer safe and secure routes through the Mount Hood National Forest for cross-country skiers. Fishing guides offer both walking and floating adventures along the Salmon and Sandy Rivers, both designated as Wild & Scenic Rivers, throughout the year for fishers who love a challenge. The adventures are unending when using Rhododendron vacation rentals as each season produces a new sport to experience in the wilds of Oregon.

Property Manager The team was very responsive to our needs. A very enjoyable week long stay! Property The Old Farm was an excellent choice for us. Our family often stayed very comfortably there while celebrating our son's wedding in Carlton. There was plenty of room to spread out and sitting on the deck was very enjoyable each day. Loved the modern kitchen and proximity to the many vineyards for some wine tasting. Old Farm
