Property description

Enjoy this stunning historic two story Victorian house built in 1900 and perched on a bluff top corner lot adjacent to the Hood River with sweeping 270 degree dynamic views. Views include the Columbia River, Hood River, Hood River Bridge, White Salmon Bridge, Washington and East hills, peek-a-boo of Mt Hood, Fourth of July fireworks, and the occasional Mt Hood Railroad tourist train. Portions of the windsurfing “Event Site” and the kite boarding “Spit” are also within view. Enjoy watching the colorful chaos of windsurfers, kite boarders and sailboats while listening to the sound of the Hood River below.

Without neighbors on two sides and a vacant lot to the north, the unfenced wind-protected private back yard and deck has the same views as the house and is a perfect location to watch human and wildlife activities in the surrounding river gorges below while grilling on the brand new Weber grill under the shade of gnarled oak trees. Sandy uncrowded beaches on the Hood River are only 220 feet away. Walk 2 blocks west to the Indian Creek Trail for running, walking and bike riding along the Hood River. Watch eagles and osprey hunt high above the Hood River and chipmunks and quail scurry about. Walk 8 blocks northwest to Historic Downtown Hood River and all its amenities; see points of interest map below. Minutes from fishing, boating, kite boarding and wind surfing on the Columbia River. 35 miles to Mt Hood Meadows ski resort, 25 miles to family-friendly Cooper Spur Ski Resort, 50 miles to year-round snow at Timberline Lodge and 21 miles to snow parks for tubing.

The home is fully set up to act as your base for day excursions and quiet refuge for rejuvenation. The living room has views of both rivers, a gas fireplace, and a 46' LCD HDTV. The office has a computer with 5mbps internet access, Wi-Fi, printer/scanner/copier and a house phone with unlimited local and domestic long distance. The kitchen with gas range, large windows and 26' LCD HDTV is conveniently located adjacent to indoor and outdoor dining spaces. The expanded cable service in the living room and kitchen offers 75 TV channels and 45 music channels to enjoy while while cooking, dining or entertaining. The Main floor east bedroom has a king bed and view of the Hood River. The upstairs north bedroom has a queen bed and views of both rivers. The upstairs south master bedroom has a queen bed, half bath (toilet & sink) and views of the Hood River and peek-a-boo of Mt Hood. Both upstairs bedrooms have 27' TVs with basic cable and IPod/MP3 dock clock radios.

Extra sleeping capacity is provided by a twin daybed with trundle that can optionally be combined to make a king bed in the living room, the L-Shaped couch adds two spots, and three small foam mattresses can be used anywhere.

Lockable gear storage is located under the north porch. Two to four off-street parking spaces and free on-street parking is available. Pets and large groups considered for additional fee, please inquire.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Click on the '+' button on the map below to zoom in. Shawn, Sophie and their two children relocated to the Hood River valley in August 2005 from Seattle Washington in order to raise their family in a picturesque small town environment with more indoor and outdoor opportunities than you should reasonably expect in a small community. As full-time year-round Hood River valley residents since 2005, we'd love to share with you from an insider's perspective what we know and love about this award-winning community. We wouldn't live anywhere else!

Why the Owner Chose Hood River:
You could live here your entire life and still not exhaust the available opportunities.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Feel like you are staying in the mountains while being only 8 blocks to town and 220 feet to Hood River beach. Indian Creek Trail. Outstanding views. Wind-protected private back yard and deck. Short walk to all the amenities of the Historic Downtown district. Minutes from fishing, boating, kite boarding and wind surfing on the Columbia River. 35 miles to Mt Hood Meadows ski resort, 25 miles to family-friendly Cooper Spur Ski Resort, 50 miles to year-round snow at Timberline Lodge and 21 miles to snow parks for tubing. This vacation rental has been in service since August 2008.
