Our new lodge is a spectacular 6000 sq. ft.log home. Everyone who has seen it raves about it. You especially will like the indoor koi pond in the entry, and then stepping on into the great room you will be awed by the high and wide stone fireplace with its gandiose juniper log mantle. A few steps farther and you will be gazing down on to the Sandy and Salmon Rivers where they merge right outside our windows. The lodge is situated on a buff 60 ft. above the rivers. In the lodge for you enjoyment there is a home theatre and a rec. room with a custom log pooltable. Come visit us and we will pamper you and make your stay fun and enjoyable !
Double french doors open out onto an outside deck with a relaxing view of the lawns and an English garden. A view of the river is available as well. If you enjoy family heirlooms this room will speak to you through its historical charm. Displayed are a variety of personal memorabilia featuring a hand-quilted bedspread composed of blocks created by children and grandchildren to commemorate Maggie's parents' 50th wedding anniversary. All rooms include personal bathrooms with tub/shower facilities, full closets, dressers and free wireless internet access.
The main feature of the room is the magnificent queen size bed, a spectacular creation of twisted juniper wood that begs to be caressed because of the smoothness and color combinations of the wood. Underfoot is a large decorator fishing rug to compliment the colors and theme of the room. Opening the double french doors leading out onto the deck brings the ambience of the rivers right into the room so that you feel you are at the rivers edge. The best fishing hole on the entire upper Sandy River sits nestled in a shady cove directly below the deck. All rooms include personal bathrooms with tub/shower facilities, full closets, dressers and free wireless internet access.
For those interested in Oregon history this is a natural fit. In 1845 Samuel K. Barlow blazed a trail from The Dalles to Oregon City thus avoiding the dangerous Columbia River rapids, the last leg of the Oregon Trail. For the first three years of its existence the Barlow Trail ran about a quarter mile to the north of the lodge. It is now called the Barlow Trail Road. Its current location is essentially the present Mount Hood Loop Highway 26. This room is decorated with items that would have been used by pioneers traveling the Oregon Trail and the Barlow Trail. The bed and furniture are made of rustic lodge pole pine. After a long days journey relax in the jacuzzi tub. Double french doors open up to an outside balcony deck with a fabulous view of the rivers. All rooms include personal bathrooms with tub/shower facilities, full closets, dressers and free wireless internet access.
This is the largest guest room in the lodge, our premier / executive / bridal suite. It features a king size canopy bed made of distressed aspen wood. Designer lamps on each night stand and a matching chandelier further compliment the room. The room gets its name from a fabulous hand carved wood eagle, (carved by a prominent local artisan) right outside the door, sitting atop the stairway newell post. During the fall season, eagles can be seen from the room fishing for salmon in the rivers. A large bay window overlooks the rivers below, which open for the enjoyment of the soothing sound of the rapids. Relax in the swirling waters of the jacuzzi tub.

Absolutely wonderful stay - hosts were so gracious and even remembered it was our Anniversary with a special gift! Beautiful home, great breakfast and so close to the Sandy Ridge Bike trails. Highly recommend.

My husband and I were blown away by the architecture of the home, the views of the confluence of the Sandy and Salmon Rivers, the hospitality of our hosts, and by every detail that they put into such a memorable experience. We left replenished and commented to one another that we could not think of a single detail that they overlooked. Perfection!
We are so glad you could stay with us, on our little piece of "Heaven", here on the Mountain.

Fabulous log B&B Lodge. As you walk in the front door the first thing you will see is the indoor koi pond and then the view of the rivers out the back two story wall of windows. One of my favorite spots was to sit in the chairs looking at the woods and rivers. We originally planned to stay here two nights but had changed to three, so glad we did as it is the best B&B that we have ever stayed at. We stayed in The Fishing Hole which had a balcony that overlooked the convergence of the Sandy & Salmon rivers. In addition there were screened doors so that you could listen to the soothing sounds of the water all night long. (Makes great white noise for those who have a spouse that snores.) Maggie and Jerry are great hosts. She always has homemade goodies out for snacking and a scrumptious 3 course breakfast each morning. Jerry even went hiking with my husband to show him some of his favorites spots. Maggie & Jerry make you feel so at home you think you are visiting good friends. If you are in the Columbia Gorge Area you should not miss the opportunity to stay at The Sandy Salmon, you will be glad you did.

My husband has commented several times that this is the best B&B we've visited among dozens over the years...both in the USA and International. It's comfortable, well furnished, and meticulously maintained. The views from every room are beautiful. The hosts are welcoming and attentive; breakfast was outstanding. There is a trail down to the river with lawn chairs, providing a great place to read if you have the time. Our only regret is that we had only one night at the Sandy Salmon. We're already looking forward to our next visit!

This log home was awesome. The owners were very welcoming. The breakfast was very good. The inside and outside were immaculate, with an outstanding view of the river. The owner was quite the hunter with all his trophies mounted in the home it was awesome. Fireplace was gorgeous. Excellent!!!!

We felt so very welcome, like one of the family. The home itself is outstanding, the view over the river is gorgeous, and the breakfasts were unequalled on our 3-week journey all through Oregon & California. It's the perfect location for visiting the Columbia River Gorge and Mount Hood areas. We would recommend this B&B very highly!

Walking the immaculate grounds was a beautiful and peaceful experience. From our deck we watched a full moon rise and shine on the sparkling rivers below. We kept our door open at night and went to sleep to the sounds of the rivers rolling down stream on the rocks below.

Beautiful home and grounds! Location and surrounding rivers are spectacular as is the home itself. Spotless to the extreme, rooms very well appointed.

We stayed here the night of or wedding and it was beautiful and comfortable. They were very accommodating to our needs and even made sure we got breakfast even though we had to check out at 5:30 am to make our flight for the honeymoon. Highly recommended!
