The Mt. Hood Guest House is located right on the scenic fruit loop, 14 miles south of Hood River just off Hwy 35 near the town of Parkdale. With 5 bedrooms, 2 baths and a sunroom for lounging or sleeping, the guest house can sleep up to 16. Most rooms and the porches have Mt. Hood views. There is a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of seating for diners.
Great location if attending a wedding in the Upper Valley, gathering for a family reunion, getting a group together to take in the incredible scenery and many recreation opportunities. Five ski areas, breathtaking mountain lakes, waterfall hikes and road or mountain biking at your doorstep.
See the photos with description at the bottom of this listing for a visual on accomodations in each bedroom. Downstairs you will find Bedroom 1 with a queen bed, desk, and rocker. Bedroom 2 is the kid room! A twin over full bunk, play table, desk, and VCR with kid movies (adults are also welcome). The back porch doubles as a family room and extra sleeping with two futons, one queen and one full size. The upstairs has three bedrooms and a full bath. Bedroom 3 has a full bed, dresser and wingback chair for lounging. Bedroom 4 and 5 are done in warm knotty pine and fir floors, and are furnished with a queen and a twin bed or sofa twin.
The covered porch off the living room's French doors is the place to BBQ, take in Mt. Hood, or supervise the more energetic portion of your group while they try hands at horse shoes or volley ball (or building a snow man) in the expansive yard.
Want to bring your equestrian friends? Boarding is available nearby.

Many ThanksGuest comment entered by owner
What a spacious house with the many bedrooms where we all could thin out. Kids and parents going hard on the slopes skiing, grandparents watching, very cozy place to come back to. The sun on the mountain was beautiful! With the long dark mornings and evenings, I took advantage of your library.

Enjoyed this historic well-maintained home
Our family enjoyed this well-maintained home. Kids loved the playground about a block away. The new restaurant (Mt. Hood Pullout I think is the name) is very close to the house and their food is great. We love Cooper Spur Ski Resort; it's very family friendly, and the distance from this home to the resort made it very convenient. The owner was very helpful and nice to work with. We would recommend this property, and would return there ourselves.

We stayed at the home for several days and had a wonderful time with several families with children. The owner was EXTREMELY friendly and the home was extremely clean. HOME The home has all the amenities plus a little Roku for viewing Netflix, which was a huge plus for the kids. Wi-Fi was a cinch to connect to and the area around the house was perfect for kids to play and build snowmen. The patio area is larger than the other bedrooms and is also heated. It is great for kids or a family that has 4 or more people. Each room has its own key for added privacy and to prevent small kids from roaming into your things. LOCATION The home seemed a little far from Portland, but in actuality was fast and easy to get to because there was significantly less snow and traffic than if we were to have stayed in Government Camp or Welches. In fact, they closed HWY 26 due to accidents after snowboarding so those that stayed in those areas had to drive completely around the mountain to get back to their places of stay. The home is approximately 5 minutes to the nearest market and small restaurants and 30-40 minutes to Mount Hood Meadows. There is a tiny BBQ restaurant with good happy hour and a friendly staff and a modern market with everything you need (Isaacs) ADDED BENEFITS One of the men in our group accidently knocked over a glass stand on the porch. The owner was more than fair in replacement charges. The owner can get a discount on lift tickets that were approximately $20 lower than the retail price. All we had to do is notify her the day before and emailed our list of names directly to Meadows. WHAT TO BRING The home has a washer and dryer and plenty of towels. It has a large number of utensils and cooking pots and pans. If you come with a group for several days, bring extra toilet paper. Also, if you plan on barbecuing, bring charcoal since the barbecue is a charcoal grill. Our group travels a lot, and this experience with this particular owner for a larger group was awesome. We definitely will be back to visit soon.

About the owner: I was born and in the Black Hills of South Dakota, raised in southern Oregon, waitressed and travelled for 15 years and then worked as an engineer/project manager for 20 years. I'm now 'retired' in the gorgeous Hood River Valley doing projects of my own.
Why the Owner Chose Parkdale:
It is hard to beat the beauty of the Hood River Valley, and this house sits right in the small town of Mt. Hood on the scenic 'Fruit Loop' between Hood River and Mt. Hood. The Mt. Hood Guest House is rich in history. Cooper Spur is a ridge on the north side of Mt. Hood named after the family who homesteaded this property. The front section of the house was moved to its current site from across the road where it was used as the first store and post office in the upper valley from 1901 to 1932. Learn more about the history and see the early photos during your stay. The floors are old growth fir, the counter tops are maple from a tree out back, the pathways are recovered concrete from the old milking barn. The old farm sinks and tubs have been refinished. Don't miss a bubble bath in the red claw foot tub!
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The house has an old farmhouse feel, but gained all the modern conveniences during the renovation. With sleeping for up to 16, it makes a great place for a family gathering. The decor is a mix of historical photos and local art work. Like it? Make it your own, all of the art work is for sale.
