What an amazing stay! All the cozy little details to make you feel as though you have truly escaped, and yet also feel right at home. The soaking tubs and fire down by the river are the most relaxing things in the world! It was like time expanded and all the layers of stress just peeled away! All topped off by a little basket of smores fixings for a fireside treat! Bonnie is kind, welcoming, an amazing cook and truly generous! My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

As you enter the cute detached cottage, there is a small sticker claiming that Brightwood has been named "One of the Best Places to Kiss in the Northwest", and it's nothing but the truth! Bonnie and Jeff have created a cozy, romantic and relaxing getaway with all the comforts of home. I regret that we only spent one night here, as we left so refreshed and full of delicious food! Close to Mt. Hood and Portland, it's a great getaway for couples or a small family looking for some time away!

My husband and I came to Bonnie & Jeff's bed and breakfast in serious need of a relaxing retreat, and we got more pampering and relaxation that we could have hoped for! The many special extras that are included on top of the private cabin B&B experience--1st class soaking tubs, pre-built fire in the outdoor fire pit, basket-of-s'mores fixings, STOCKED cupboards, feather bed mattress, etc., can make even the most stressed, over-worked couple find romance and relaxation!

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at this incredible "private residence" guesthouse. The lodgings are kept in meticulous order, the owners provide everything you need far beyond the normal B&B, and the hot tubs have to be experienced as words cannot discribe the peaceful relaxing feeling we were left with after a long soak. What an incredibly romantic getaway. Like nothing we have found at any other B&B. Sid and Janie from South Carolina

Very private, cozy, and clean. Bonnie and Jeff make you feel like a friend right from the beginning to the end. The breakfast is wonderful, the outdoor wood tubs are blissful, and the guest house is very comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom are fully stocked with everything you would need. We even got some wonderful brownies the first night we got there which were super tasty. We headed up skiing the night we left and Jeff was kind enough to let us borrow some tire chains. It's like having your own friends on the mountain - very nice couple. We plan on coming back!

This B&B offers a quiet and private location with delicious breakfasts delivered to the cabin. The owners use high quality ingredients to prepare a unique breakfast feast to start your day. The cabin is very cozy, with an open concept living and dining area. The living area has a cathedral ceiling and contains the stairs to the comfortable but small sleeping loft above. On warm days, the backyard has a very welcoming seating area. For history buffs, the Oregon Trail goes right through the backyard. Mt Hood is nearby, with skiing and hiking. The historical Timberline lodge is worth walking through, and is also a fine place to eat. There are nice walking trails within a short drive of the cabin. The Rendezvous Grill & Tap Room is also nearby, and offers excellent lunch or dinner choices, including fresh fish. The Thai restaurant in Sandy is worth the trip, and what it lacks in atmosphere, it makes up for in food quality. It is worth staying for a week just for the chance to get some of Bonnie's chocolate cake.

My husband and I stayed at this Bed and Breakfast and were blown away by the excellent service. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. The guest house is very clean and private. We enjoyed sitting by the fire each night and listening to the sounds of the creek. They also have amazing soaking tubs next to the fire that we really enjoyed. The innkeepers were fabulous about helping us with entertainment, restaurants and directions. We would highly recommend staying at the Brightwood Guest House!

I had the pleasure of staying at the Brightwood Guest House for several weeks in May and June of 2007. This long stay afforded me the opportunity to really explore the property and take in the hundreds of species of flora surrounding the Guest Cabin. Everywhere you look the wonders of nature and the beauty of life is overwhelming. From the smallest details in the manicured lawns and flower beds, to the larger picture of spending time nestled amongst some of the best hiking and skiing in the Northwest United States - it was fabulous! Bonnie and Jeff Rames, my hosts were charming, thoughtful, and accommodating. I would recommend a stay at the Brightwood Guest House B&B to any couple or individual looking to decompress and truly relax.

Per the boyfriend, "FOOOOD!!" :) We had a great time, Jeff and Bonnie were one step ahead of our every desire during our stay. We had mentioned that we wanted to go hiking- Jeff met us in the morning with a map full of ideas. We said that we wanted to have massages- Bonnie had them scheduled for us when we arrived. We said we wanted to relax by their firepit- Jeff had the fire started and Bonnie lit the pathway with tealights and left out blankets for us. They were absolutely amazing! We are definitely going back!

Unbelievable. The innkeepers take care of everything... The collection of lotions, bath salts, soaps, snacks, drinks, board games, videos is staggering! Picturesque location right on a creek... Not too far from skiing at Government Lodge and an easy drive from Portland. Although my true love may be gone forever, I can be thankful that we experienced this serenity to put things in perspective. Will never forget... Also breakfast is pretty tasty...
