La Casita was locally designed and built with a timber frame construction by 'Timberpeg'. The wood for this outstanding home was recycled from standing dead Douglas Fir, harvested from the Mt. Hood Region of Oregon. The front and back doors, stair rails, casement and trim were all hand made and resawn from the extra timbers. The table top and kitchen island is custom made from black walnut, and the kitchen cabinets are made from butternut. The unique design of La Casita shows off slate floors that were painstakenly hand cut and strategically placed, Hemlock floors that were harvested locally, a top of the line kitchen, massive fireplace with an 'Old World' baker's oven, and exposed post and beams.
The Master suite has a queen size bed with en-suite bathroom with jetted tub and a separate area for the sink and granite topped vanity; The built in hanging and drawer storage as well as the built in ironing center makes this private suite unique and efficient. A private door to the deck and nature will allow secret access to late night star gazing for mom and dad while the children are sound asleep.
The loft has two guest bedrooms and a sitting area. Each bedroom provides a queen size bed, which fit uniquely into custom designed wall pockets; A cushioned chair in each bedroom, built in hanging and drawer storage in one and a dresser in the other; The bedrooms share a large bathroom with a tub/shower. Each room has windows for looking out at the forest. The sitting area serves as a place to relax and read, and additional sleeping space with a comfy sofa sleeper for two!

La Casita del Bosque is a one of a kind beauty and is set in a tranquil environment with the intention of peace and quiet; therefore the lake has a “no motor” restriction. You are welcome to fish the small mouth bass with “catch and release” in mind. Bring your fishing pole and worms and cast from shore as the fish like to feed around the natural shoreline. Or take the new kayaks for a paddle! Good swimming with a sandy bottom and nice clear water! Just follow the sloping rustic path down to the lake. You have the best of both worlds when you stay at La Casita...a luxury home in a rustic setting.
We hope you enjoy your stay, you leave refreshed and you choose La Casita del Bosque for your family vacation for years to come!
