What is spectacular and uncommon about this home is the breadth of the Gorge view and the gorgeous Mt. Adams view compared to most other 2 bdrm units in town, with a rare garage for storing your outdoor gear. It is located inside Hood River town close to Jackson Park and the Swim/Tennis Center. From the living room, master bedroom and balcony there is a 140 degree view of the other side of the Gorge, with a full view of Mt. Adams that you don’t get at most other 2 bdrm places. While you’re sipping your morning coffee on the balcony, you can also see the river in front of the Event-Site to check out wind and wave conditions before you go sailing or kite-boarding.
This unit is the 1,350 sq. ft. upper floor of this daylight-ranch home. The house is sited on the edge of a small bluff so the neighboring houses and trees are below your view sight lines which also provides nice privacy.
Check out our other unit, AdamsView-2 (VRBO #303459) if the calendar for this unit doesn't have your dates open.
Just a 4 minute walk is the large aquatic center pools, tennis courts, softball field, soccer field, a Thursday farmer’s market and Jackson Park’s amphitheater with free summer weekend concerts and movies. The only grocery store close to downtown is a 90 second drive down the hill. The start of downtown is about a dozen blocks to the east - a 15-18 minute walk or a 3-minute drive or a short bike, to Hood River’s fine pubs, shopping, galleries, fine cuisine, sushi, pizza, ice cream, theaters, wine-tasting, bike shops, wind-sport shops and coffee shops. The house is also close to the Heights neighborhood with more options for restaurants, shops, the other grocery store, and fruit stands. Of course, there are numerous options to enjoy Hood River’s world-famous windsurfing and kite-boarding sites (Event-Site, Hook, The Marina, and Spit are a 6-8 minute drive).
Go west to visit several close-by best-of-the-region wineries, within 8 minutes by bike (Cathedral Ridge (great Pinots); Marchesi (sumptuous Italian wines); and Mt Hood (fruit/dessert wines). Also a short bike ride to the west is the Post Canyon trails complex (2 mi. to single-track) which has some of the best mountain bike single-track and free-riding trails on the west coast (70+ miles of trails). Closer to Mt. Hood and across the river are many dozens of hiking and mt bike trails. A Gorge hiking guide is supplied.
From the entry, the kitchen is immediately to the right, with dining area adjoining. 2010 all stainless steel appliances (convection double-oven, built-in smooth-top 4-burner cooktop, built-in microwave, new tile counter, black-granite sink, large bottom-freezer refrigerator, dishwasher, toaster, coffee-maker. Lots of counter space and stocked with basic condiments, pots & pans, dishes, glasses, etc. From the dining table, there is even a partial view of the steep, rugged north face of Mt. Hood, which completes the fairly rare “Hood River 2-mountain view”.
Further past the entry, to your right is the large living room with a comfortable, large, sectional sofa, with a great view of the Gorge and Mt. Adams. A sliding glass door opens onto the 32 x 8 ft. cedar balcony with a solid railing for privacy and safety. The balcony has a dining table for 6, plus comfy lounge chairs/ottomans, and a Weber gas grill BBQ with side-burner. The large north-facing balcony has welcome shade on hot summer days and is sheltered from much of the famous Gorge winds.
From the entry, turn left to the bathroom with double-sinks and large shower. Also to the left of the entry is the master bedroom (12 x 16 ft) which has the same special view of the gorge/Mt. Adams… what an inspiring sight to wake up to! The second bedroom is slightly smaller, (without gorge view). Bedrooms have ultra-comfortable foam-mattress/pillow-top King beds with quality linens, a large double-closet, plus a chest of drawers for the master. The optional 3rd bed is a super comfortable, premium queen-size AeroBed with built-in pump that inflates in 3 minutes to a 22” height. It’s much more comfortable than most sleeper-sofas.
The 2-car garage has one bay available for storing your vehicle and/or drying/storing your gear (The other bay is for AdamsView-2), plus your own dedicated clothes washer/dryer. The trees in the front yard offer some shade for driveway parking. Fits 2 cars in your half of the circle driveway + 1 in garage, plus ample on-street parking.
The home has a 2010, premium, central heating/cooling system with electronic air cleaner, and a completely separate thermostat and ducting just for your unit. Plus electrical and plumbing upgrades.
After a day of outdoor activities, relax, take in the view and barbeque on the balcony or go downtown for an enjoyable evening.
Mt. Hood Meadows, the largest ski resort, is about 40 minutes south. The classic Timberline Lodge offers year-round skiing. Trails for hiking, XC skiing or snow-shoeing are within 5-30 minutes drive. There are numerous spectacular, scenic routes for road biking right from the house. Exciting, Class 3-4 white-water rafting and kayaking is available on the White Salmon, Klickitat, and Deschutes rivers.
Be aware that many of the other 2-bedroom places for vacation rental in Hood River have no view or narrow/limited views, may have a tiny deck, lots of I-84/downtown traffic noise and limited or no off-street parking, and most have no garage, some have no or limited room-A/C.
If you’d like to rent the entire 4 Bedroom/2-bath home (2,650 sq ft), also check the description and calendar for “AdamsView-2” #303459 for availability and call us to pre-arrange an option for stairway access between the units, (this door is normally dead-bolted with an acoustic insulation panel over it.)

Mt.Adams view is as full a view as one gets in town. Just a bit west or east or lower elevation and start kissing the mt. view goodbye. By contrast a ridge blocks many inside-downtown properties from a sliver to NO view of Adams. Watching the sunset alpen-glow pink on Adams, with a glass of wine on the balcony is just - perfect. Plus there's a bonus - there's partial view of the rugged North Face of Mt. Hood from the south-facing dining room....moreless

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We bike, hike and backpack and love the outdoors and Gorge/mountain views. He is in high-tech marketing and she does nursing with moms and babies.
Why the Owner Chose Hood River:
We went to a friend's wedding in Hood River, decided to look around at houses since we had time before it started. Within seconds of walking out onto the balcony and seeing the 'gorge-ous' panorama in front of us, we knew we had to make an offer.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the close-by biking, wineries and downtown restaurants, and relaxing on the balcony sipping wine or a cold microbrew while watching the sunset alpenglow paint bright pink colors on Mt Adams and the high meadows across the river. We often mountain bike to Post Canyon trails right from the garage.
