Peaceful escape in the Pacific Northwest
I stayed one night during a solo road trip in September 2018. Sandy Salmon B&B is a wonderful find on the shoulder of Mt Hood. An authentic mountain lodge at the confluence of the Sandy and Salmon rivers. The views of the rivers from the back deck are magnificent and the sounds of the water will rock you to sleep at night. Jerry and Maggie are attentive hosts, offering local dining suggestions and cooking a hearty breakfast in the morning. You will feel like family when you visit. The rooms are finished in rustic but high comfort style, I stayed in the "Fishing Hole" room at the back of the house and had peace and quiet, especially enjoyed reading on my lighted shaded private balcony. The main house boasts a game room including a pool table. Highly recommended for solos and couples, whether seeking a romantic getaway or just a quiet and comfortable stay. I will certainly call again if I am back in this corner of the world.
What a beautiful property and what great hosts!
After a few nights of "rough" accommodations at an Airbnb near Mt. Hood, the Sandy Salmon was absolute heaven. The lodge is beautiful and the grounds pristine. Jerry and Maggie were perfect hosts. Very good people. Breakfast was the best we had without question while in Portland and the surrounding area. We visited the nearby trout farm and without even asking, Maggie offered to cook up our catch for breakfast the next morning. My daughter left some items in her room and with a quick call and 2 days all was neatly packaged and returned to our home hassle free. It's hard to get better than this...anywhere. And oh, Sandy is a nice little town too.
A giant natural grotto!
Go for it! Sit on those red Adirondacks! Stunning views from everywhere in their house and outside. Really beautiful. Their kitchen is gorgeous and the wood details are spectacular. The pool table alone is a fantastic piece. Gerry is an avid hunter displaying his kill so I can understand another's comment if you can't stomach mounted animals. Maggie's breakfast was delicious and several courses. Quite filling and yummy. I also agree with another commentor that the fishing room (juniper) is on the smaller side. There is a larger option, one with balcony and one with bay windows. I agree that the hosts are very friendly, open to sharing their knowledge of the area and help out. We did feel the breakfast time was not up for debate but it's understandable since you eat with the hosts and it would be difficult to prepare each course several times for themselves, and any number of guests. We would definitely return.
Everything was WONDERFUL!
The view of the two converging rivers from our room was absolutely beautiful! The hosts made us feel like family and the "cabin" was immaculate! There is a nice path down to the water, and a wonderful fish pond in the entryway of the home. There is also a gorgeous huge stone fireplace in the common room. We were passing through on business but it felt like a cabin vacation get-away. We didn't have time to enjoy the pool table and theater so we Will definitely stay again!
Better than the photographs
This is a place where you can just kick back and watch the river. It is located in a forest next to the road.. However we could not see or hear the road from our room. It is located on a bluff that is 80 feet above the confluence of the Sandy and Salmon rivers. It is a short drive to Mt. Hood and Timberline lodge. In the area are some hiking trails. We just enjoyed being there. Breakfast was great and the hospitality could not be beat. The lodge has 4 rooms I think but we were the only ones there. Our room had a balcony overlooking the rivers (Fishing hole room) I would absolutely recommend it if yoiu want a place to just relax and do nothing. Has a large common room with fireplace. Good for couples.
