We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful home and outstanding view. We didn't hear any road noise even with it right on hwy 26. A fun game room, tv room, and marvelous breakfast made our stay a fun and relaxing time. We would certainly come back. Service was prompt and the couple very attentive but they had a slight abruptness about their personality that made me prefer to avoid them. It is a very minor thing and we'd go back regardless.

Gorgeous Lodge

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sandy Salmon B&B Lodge. The architecture was spectacular and the attention to detail is amazing. Every room was beautifully decorated and there was plenty of space to mingle or get away. Our hosts prepared the most delicious breakfasts and being able to enjoy the view of the river topped it all off! Highly recommend staying at this property. We hope to come back again.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in early July. The hosts were nice and personable, Each room has a different theme. We stayed in the Fishing hole room, although its probably the smallest it had the best view of the 2 rivers. We enjoyed sitting out on our room deck sipping wine,eating cheese and crackers while taking in the view. Although the sound of the rivers was great during the day/evening it could be a bit loud at night if windows were left open. This could be bothersome to those not use to noise.rather then comforting. We enjoyed seeing the other guests at breakfast and sharing stories. The location was perfect for seeing all the sights in the Mt Hood area. We felt it was a great place and would stay again if in the area.

Great location to relax

This is a very nice b&b. This was a great location to come to after a day of hiking around Mt. Hood. The couple that own the location are very friendly. The house is beautiful, and the backyard is wonderful to relax down by the rushing river. Breakfast was great.

Awesome stay

A wonderful house nestled along the banks of the Sandy & Salmon rivers. Scenic vistas and close to Mt Hood. Thoroughly enjoyed listening to the river. Maggie and Jerry were wonderful hosts with lots of suggestions about things to do (was our first trip to Oregon). Definitely worth a visit!

My wonderful Birthday gift

We went there for my Birtday. Stay was from Fri - Sunday morning. Had the best time of my life. The food home made, great cook. Our room with the view of the river outstanding. Sleeping with the sound of the river. I took lots of pictures and showed them to everyone. They want to go there for there next getaway. I felt like family there. They are so kind, loving people. We will go back again!!!!

Almost Spring in the Mountains

I arrived in wet, gray weather, and it stayed that way the entire visit. But inside the Sandy Salmon B&B, it was warm and cozy. The hosts couldn't have been nicer. My room was so clean, my sister-in-law, also known as "Molly WhiteGlove," announced it was "immaculate" - not a comment she often makes. If you're interested in a warm and cozy stay, definitely check in here. And, oh, the food - scrumptious!

Perfect for us!

It was me and my gf's 1st bed and breakfast ever, we stayed in the most expensive room. the Eagles Nest, and we enjoyed every minute! On valentines day weekend when everyone else jacked up prices i got a normal price at Sandy Salmon! that alone amazed me. Not only would I recommend going, I will go there again some day. The owners are friendly, and the food was great. The overall experience was nothing but top notch, my only complaint was not staying another night.

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 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.

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.
