Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: I am a graduate forester who bought this 25 acre treefarm back in 1982. The tree farm is managed under the American Tree Farm System with the goal of providing sustainable, multiple use crops of wood, water, wildlife and recreation. I love this Columbia Gorge/Hood River area and want to share this beautiful piece of God's creation with those who share a similar love of the natural world. It is my hope that everyone who stays at Riordan Hill Retreat will have the best vacation of their lives.

Why the Owner Chose Hood River:
I bought this property because it borders on 1/2 million acres of public land & yet is only 10 minutes from downtown Hood River. Building a cabin in the woods had been a dream of mine ever since I was a small boy. I love the beauty, the peace & the solitude that this property provides. It is my desire to share this special place with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Nature, scenic beauty, wildlife encounters, solitude, peace, restoration of the spirit, adventure, the visit of friends are just a few of the feelings & emotions that come to mind when I think about time spent in this cabin by myself or with my family & friends.
