What guests say about their
Backwoods Cabins experience

Highlights: Luxury, Romantic, Quiet, Hi-Tech, Great Value

This is our new favorite spot in the Gorge! We can’t say enough about how fantastic these cabins are! From the beautiful and nature inspired decor to the coziness of the cabins to all the wonderful amenities and extras that are provided, they have everything covered! We loved the location as well, very quiet and private yet easily walkable to the Brewery and other spots. Great location for hiking too! This was truly a treat! 5 stars!!


We booked a two night stay in the Forager Cabin this past weekend. I think we might have been the first guests in the cabin. They thought of everything, down to the smallest details. The cabin was relatively small, but the high ceilings made it seem a lot bigger. The bed was comfortable and the shower had good water pressure. We enjoyed the Adirondack chairs in the fire pit area (fire pit was not installed at yhe time of our stay), and our dog was able to explore the area. It is conveniently located just down from the Backwoods Brewery, where we enjoyed a great dinner and, as always, superb beers. We really enjoyed our stay and plan to stay here again in the future.


The town of Carson is small, but provides great access to hiking, biking and other outdoor activities. We visited Backwoods Brewing and the Backwoods Country Store during our stay. One of us was training for a half-marathon and enjoyed running through the town and out the Wind River Highway past the lumber mill and into the woods.

We’ve been to the Gorge many, many times and stayed in several hotels and loads of Airbnbs. These cabins provided by far the coziest and most convenient jumping off point for our adventures.



Backwoods Cabins is nestled in the heart of Columbia River Gorge and minutes from Hood River. Steps from your cabin door is Backwoods Brewing Company- and as a guest, you’ll discover complimentary drink coupons in your cabin. Access to hikes, biking, golf, waterfalls, and more is abundant with the natural beauty that surrounds your cabin getaway. The Dog Mountain trail is only a few miles away from the Backwoods Cabins campus and is great for experienced hikers. Your base camp for adventure, romance, memory-making, and good times is here at Backwoods Cabins.
