Covid-19 has forced many of us to cancel our travel and
vacation plans. We have been stuck
inside our homes for way too long, looking at the same walls, and with nowhere
to go. A few days spent rejuvenating in
a scenic and peaceful place is just what we recommend if you’re looking to
combat pandemic fatigue. We hope that you will come spend a few days relaxing in Shukuru Cottage.
Shukuru means gratitude in Swahili. We named our Mt. Hood cabin, Shukuru Cottage because of the gratitude we feel for the abundant blessings in our lives including the privilege of living in such a beautiful place. We are also grateful to you, our donors. Without your generosity the Rafiki Village Project would not be possible. As a thank you for your generosity, we are making Shukuru Cottage available to you.
Shukuru Cottage is in a beautiful forest setting near the village of Rhododendron, just
45 miles east of Portland. It is
surrounded by towering conifers and mountain streams. During the day, hike the many nearby trails,
downhill or cross-country ski spectacular Mt. Hood, fly- fish for steelhead in
pristine mountain streams, swim or kayak in nearby lakes, play a round of golf
at Three Nines Golf Course, take the family to Mt. Hood Adventure Park and
brave the infamous Alpine Slide, or simply relax and do nothing in a beautiful
setting. In the evening, eat dinner out
on the deck, relax with a glass of wine, read that novel you’ve been meaning to
get to, or play a game by the fire. At
night, fall into a deep and restful sleep listening to the hypnotic sounds of
Zigzag and Still Creeks.
The cabin has a living room with a river rock fireplace, a
full kitchen with modern appliances, a bedroom on the first floor with a queen
bed and fireplace, a loft above the living room with two double beds, a back
second floor bedroom with 2 double beds, and a bathroom on the first floor with
a shower. The living room has a fold
out double futon. Therefore there are
six beds in four rooms. The basement
contains a washer and a dryer.
