Sandy Salmon Bed and Breakfast

4.8 on October 11, 2017

Most beautiful Bed and Breakfast we ever stayed in. The Breakfast was delicious, versatile, and filling. Grounds were immaculate and room was perfect! Would love to visit again. It was close to many hiking trails so didn't have to spend an hour in car traveling.

Innkeeper Response
So glad your time at our Bed & Breakfast was enjoyed by you. We also enjoy our customers.

My recent stay at Sandy Salmon B&B was absolutely perfect! I literally felt like I was coming home! Jerry and Maggie were so welcoming and even joined us for breakfast. The home was absolutely beautiful with a breathtaking view overlooking the river below! I can't wait to visit again!

Innkeeper Response
You are welcome home any time.

A bit of paradise

I recently stayed at Sandy Salmon B & B and was treated like royalty. The place is simply amazing and the owners welcome you as one of their family members. This is a must visit and I can't wait until I can return there.. This is a 5 Star B&B

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your review. We also think it is a bit of PARADISE, and enjoy it as well. Fall is here and colors are changing. Beautiful sight!

Beautiful Lodge

5 on September 12, 2017

Sandy Salmon is a beautiful home located on a hill overlooking the junction of the Sandy and Salmon Rivers. The hosts went out of their way to ensure all our needs were met and our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was a fantastic 3 course, home cooked meal. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend.

Innkeeper Response
We are so..Happy you have enjoyed your stay with us and the comfort of the Lodge.

A Magical Place

We couldn't have had a more wonderful stay. The place is beautiful, the site is beautiful (be sure to take the trail down to sit by the rivers for a while), and the hosts couldn't be more welcoming and gracious.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks...We "LOVE" our guests.

Beautiful Views

4.6 on June 13, 2017

We enjoyed our stay, the views and sitting by the river. The home was very clean which is a big deal to me. Our breakfast was wonderful and the conversation with the other guests was very interesting and enjoyable. Check out dinner options in the area before going in search of a restaurant unless you give yourself plenty of time or are not in a rush for a meal. We had never stayed in a B&B before, so this was a new experience for us. The owners were great hosts.

Roaring Rivers

Everything was great. Rivers were up from recent rain and create a great view.

Overlooks the merger of the Salmon and Sandy rivers. Log lodge decorated with hunting trophies throughout. Excellent pool table and TV & Movie theater with surround sound.

Anniversary Trip

5 on December 28, 2016

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary trip. It was perfectly located to give us easy access to the snow / mountains and plenty of state parks for exploring. The views at the Lodge are phenomenal. The architecture of the house is also top notch. Our hosts were very friendly and extremely nice. Would definitely recommend to others looking to avoid the "ski lodge crowds."

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for letting us be a part of your celebration.

The Fishing Hole

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.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

The Barlow Trail Room

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.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2
  • Bathroom Private Bath
  • Beds 1 Queen

$240 - $240

The Eagles Nest

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.
