Property Description

Juanita's Chalet is located in the forested mountain town of Rhododendron, Oregon. It was built by The Lake Family as a roadside market for Oregon's Centennial Celebration in 1959, part of which honored the Oregon Trail.

It's possibly most well known by long time locals as "Juanita's Mexico" restaurant. Juanita and a few others housed their Restaurants here from 1961-1988.

After you brush the fir needles or snow off your boots, come on in and see what we mean by "Modern Rustic Vibe". Tall ceilings, cool gray walls and dark wood toned floors make this a very hip Chalet. The vintage sled hanging in the Living Room lets you know this is a fun place to be. The wide open floor plan make this an inviting place to spend time, whether it be with Friends, Family, or just two Sweethearts.

After a day of Mountain Adventures, relax in the living area on the rustic log furniture. Grab a mug of hot cocoa and read a book, or watch a movie. The Chalet is outfitted with High Speed Internet, Television, DVD Player, DVD's, and Cable Channels.

When mealtime rolls around, you'll find a tidy and functional kitchen. Knotty pine cabinets, solid granite countertops and all the appliances and kitchen tools you'll need make this kitchen a Dream to cook in. In the Morning, brew some of the local Mt. Hood Roasters Coffee. It's so good, we try our best to keep the jar stocked with their fresh ground coffee. In the Evening, look in the Hutch and you'll find a blender and a variety of specialty drink glasses to mix up your favorite cocktail.

The Dining Area has a sturdy old wood table with seating for 6. It's the perfect place for dining and card games alike, with plenty of room for everyone.

When the day turns to night, you'll find two cozy bedrooms. One of them has a Pillowtop Queen Bed with a handmade pallet style headboard. A heavy comforter and soft sheets will keep you warm all night long. The other bedroom has a sturdy twin size bunk bed with comfy bedding. Both bedrooms have closets with plenty of storage.

The other sleeping accommodations are a Full size futon which can sleep two, located in the Living Area. There's also a small futon (5'x5' mattress) that can sleep 1 or 2 small people. Bedding is provided for both.

The Bathroom has a full size bath tub with shower and has been recently updated and painted a relaxing shade of gray. In the bathroom you'll also find the laundry area which has a washer and dryer for your use.

The Chalet has a large sunny side and back yard. The picnic table is perfect for an outdoor dining, reading a book, or checking your email. There's also a big old fashioned rock Firepit. Many evenings have been spent sitting around the fire with good conversation among friends. Firewood can be purchased in the Summer at the local market just down the road, please check local fire restrictions first.

An interesting bit of history to ponder while you sit under the trees, is that the Oregon Trail went right through this piece of land. Across the Highway is the Tollgate Campground and the Tollgate Interpretive Area which has access to the Zigzag River and a Replica of the Tollgate on the Oregon Trail.

JUANITA'S CHALET FRONTS HIGHWAY 26. While this provides easy access in Winter weather conditions, keep this is mind if you have small children, pets, or are sensitive to road noise.

Amazing experience! Felt like home

I will definitely come back to this place again when I visit portland next time. The place was spick and clean and exceeded our expectations

Property itself is amazing but owner is lazy to reply our mail , which made us so upset.

Property is nice and cozy. Comfortable to stay. The traffic noise is loud sometimes . The negative thing is owner's response! The website says owner will reply whitin 24hours but never happened. When I ask some questions I chased 2or 3times then they replied after 1week or more. It made us really unreliable to the owner. Sincere action is importan... Read More

Cozy Space, Has all necessary amenities

Great little cabin on the edge of Rhododendron. Just a half mile to small grocery store, rec marijuana, and a few little places to eat, Plus the Mt Hood express line to Gov't Camp. Easy to miss the turn in the dark for driveway off of Belle Lake RD but ample space to park. The $65 cleaning fee that doesn't include kitchen or trash removal (since th... Read More

Fun little cabin!

We visited this cabin for a night in Dec....lots of snow, which was fun! Yes, this is right up against the road, BUT at night the traffic is pretty quiet. Since it had snowed and this property is in a Snow Zone, the semi trucks had chains on which was pretty loud, but there's not much to do about that. Having the heaters on for sound helped. The in...

Super clean, spacious cabin in perfect condition

I wanted to bike at mt. Hood ski bowl last minute driving from NY to B.C. and made a spontaneous decision while stuck in Portland. No lodging at several places since this is summer the owner replied immediately and was available quickly. I love someone who communicates well! I'd stay here again. Cabin looks tiny on the outside but inside it's huge.... Read More
