Hood River house description

'AdamsView-2' is the 1,350 sq ft lower floor unit of our Hood River home which has a fresh, modern 2010 remodeled interior, huge patio, expansive Gorge & Mt. Adams view and a garage for stowing your outdoor gear or car. Located in a quiet, close-in neighborhood in town.

Check the calendar for always up-to-date openings, or our other unit, AdamsView-1 VRBO#303453 if this unit doesn't have your dates open.

What is quite special (vs nearly all 2-bdrm places in Hood River) is the breadth of the Gorge view and the fullness of the Mt. Adams view plus a quiet neighborhood, and a garage. From the living room, kitchen, master and 40'x20' patio there is a 120 degree view of the other side of the Columbia River Gorge, plus Mt. Adams. Places in or adjacent to downtown suffer a lot of noise from the I-84 freeway, trains and downtown bustle (diesel pickups, harleys, parties etc.)

Just a 4 minute walk is the large swim center pools, tennis courts, softball field, a Thursday farmer’s market and Jackson park’s amphitheater with free weekend concerts and outdoor movies. The main grocery store is a 90 second drive downhill. Downtown is about a dozen blocks to the east - a 15 minute walk or a 3-minute drive or a short bike to Hood River’s finest pubs, shopping, art galleries, fine cuisine, sushi, pizza, ice cream, theater, wine-tasting, bike shops, wind-sport shops and coffee/internet cafes. Getting back to our quiet neighborhood is relaxing. You're more likely to notice dove and quail calls at AdamsView.

There are numerous options to enjoy Hood River’s famous windsurfing, and kite-boarding sites for all levels (The main Event-Site, The Hook, The Marina, and the Spit are a 6-8 minute drive. AND you have a garage for storing and drying out your gear, (scarce in Hood River 2 bdrm units)..

Go west to visit several close-by best-of-the-region wineries, within 8 minutes by bike (Cathedral Ridge (award-winning Pinots); Marchesi (sumptuous Italians); and Mt Hood (desert wines). Also close-by to the west is Post Canyon (2 mi.) which has some of the best mountain bike single-track and free-riding trails on the west coast (70+ miles worth). Dozens of great single-track trails and spectacular view ad waterfall hiking trails are nearby.

The house is sited on the edge of a small bluff so the neighboring houses and trees are below your Gorge/Mt Adams sight-lines. The bushes around the yard are trimmed to provide for both the view and for privacy.

As you enter the lower level from a private sidewalk and off-street parking/garage, you are welcomed by double French Doors and a striking view of snowy, 12,281 ft high Mt. Adams. This bright daylight basement unit has cherry floors, a fresh modern Ikea kitchen, with usual appliances including dishwasher, coffee-maker, toaster, refrigerator, microwave), an updated double-sink bathroom with shower, 2 large King bedrooms with lots of closet space. A comfortable atmosphere and a relaxing getaway for those looking to enjoy the warm sunny days perched on the edge of a small bluff in a quiet neighborhood.

The master bedroom has a comfy Ikea King, pillowtop bed, with a large picture window and view of the sunrise and Mt. Adams. The second bedroom has a King bed as well and good light from a large window. (A deluxe, comfortable 22' high AeroBed queen bed is also in the unit; it inflates in 3 min's with the push of a button and can fit in the utility room.) A round patio table and chairs, new cushioned lounge chairs with ottomans, plus a modern gas grill BBQ are provided, with extra tank. The gorge/north-facing 40 ft x 20 ft concrete patio has choice of sun or shade on warm summer days.

The lockable 2-car garage has the left bay available for storing your vehicle and/or drying/storing your water-sports gear, (the other bay is reserved for use by the upper unit Adamsview-1). The many trees in the front yard offer generous summer shade for driveway parking. Fits 2 cars in the left half of the circle driveway + 1 in garage, plus ample on-street parking.

The home has a 2010, premium, dedicated-zone central heating and cooling system with electronic air filter, plus electrical and plumbing upgrades.

We installed acoustic insulation that dampens noise from the upper unit, however you may hear occasional footsteps or other low-level noises if there are any concurrent upper-unit guests, (Note that it is priced lower than the upper unit as they are otherwise quite similar. We use this unit a lot ourselves; you can also check the reviews.)

You will love the historic, interesting downtown area. It has great quality and variety of restaurants, brew pubs, coffee places, and interesting shops. After a day of outdoor activities, relax, take in the view and barbecue on the patio or go downtown for an enjoyable evening.

Mt. Hood Meadows, the largest ski resort, is about 40 minutes south and the classic 1930’s era Timberline Lodge which offers year-round skiing is about a 45 minute drive. Trails for hiking, XC skiing or snow-shoeing are within 10-30 minutes drive.

There are dozens of trails and lakes sprinkled around Mt. Hood. Mt. Adams hiking and climbing is 30 miles (48 kms) north. There are numerous great, scenic routes for road biking right from the house. Exciting, year-round Class 3-4 white-water rafting and kayaking is available on the White Salmon or Klickitat rivers (14 miles/22 kms N) and the Deschutes River (60 miles/95 kms SE).

If you’d like to rent the entire 4 Bdrm/2-bath home (2,700 sq ft), also check the description and calendar for “AdamsView-1” VRBO#:303453 and call us to pre-arrange an option ffor stairway access between the units, (this door is normally dead-bolted with an acoustic insulation panel over it.)

Please make your VRBO inquiry via the Email the Owner feature so we have a written item to track, (or call).

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2009

                              About the owner: We went to a friend's wedding in Hood River last summer, decided to look around at houses to kill some time. Within 2 minutes of walking out onto the balcony and seeing the 'gorgeous' panorama in front of us, we knew we had to make an offer.

                              Why the Owner Chose Hood River:
                              The world-class hiking, mt biking and road-biking was another big draw, as well as of course being a wind-surfing and skiing destination.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              We love the close-by biking, wineries and downtown, and relaxing on the balcony sipping a wine or cold brew while watching the evening alpenglow turn to pink colors on Mt Adams and the high meadows across the river. I like being able to leave right from my garage on my mt bike to Post Canyon's great trails.
