                    The house is well stocked an located close to everything...we were 5 adult siblings gathering for a reunion and enjoyed the sunsets and diners on the back deck! We plan to return. Hood River is so beautiful...I miss it already.

                    this home is exactly as advertised and perfect for experiencing all the hood river has to offer. the home was comfortably decorated and well taken care of. the only drawback, which was clearly stated in the description, was the lack of cable television. i hate to admit it but...

                    First and foremost, I would say the owners are excellent to work with. We came to Hood River for a special event and needed a place to accommodate five for the night. We contacted multiple houses on late notice and the owners of Blue Sky Cottage were the only one that got back to us promptly. They made the entire experience pleasant as they very easy to deal with and were very responsive throughout the rental process. The house was clean, well kept and stocked with the necessities - and not to mention the view was really nice! We found the location to be ideal as our group walked down the hill and were right in the heart of downtown for dinner. I would recommend this house to those looking for a nice, comfortable, convenient and affordable place to stay in Hood River!

                    I really loved the location of this house. It was up on the hill so had a great view of the river, and also really close to downtown. It was a 5 min or so walk to all the restaurants and shops of downtown. It's quite a steep hike back up to the house though, so make sure you're ready for it! The house is cute and very well stocked with everything you'd need. My only complaint is the house is very old so of course it is squeaky and creaky. All the floors and doors upstairs were pretty loud. I'm sure this wouldn't even really be a problem in a house with adults but with my baby sleeping in the next room I cringed every time I turned a door handle or walked to the bathroom. Not a deal breaker though, and just something that comes along with the charm of older homes.

                    This was a great little house! Our family of 5 adults enjoyed the location, and the view of river. Everything was just what we expected :), the kitchen has everything you need to cook every night - which we did including grill Salmon outside. Washer and dryer was a great plus!! :) One funny point the upstairs shower is kind of a tricky thing - but again, we are used to travel, camping and hiking so it was all a-ok! The beds were comfortable, and everything was in working order. We had the windows wide open every day, while we were there during the wild fires, we could see the smoke in the gorge but not so much smell it in town. We walked into town and explored - downhill from cottage, takes less than 5 minutes, I suggest the winery tour, however the walk back might be a tad harder up hill. n. I suggest white water rafting at Wet Planet - fabulous ask for Katie or John, and do not get potato salad at Full Sail brewery is it terrible - lol Go to White Salmon across the bridge and visit the shops, the antique store is great!! Chips has some amazing photos of interest on the walls if you are into WWll memorabilia. One funny point the upstairs shower is kind of a tricky thing - but again, we are used to travel, camping and hiking so it was all a-ok! The home is well maintained and apparently the owners take great pride in the property. Owners were very responsive to all questions and concerns and seemed to be lovely people. Colors inside the house were peaceful and happy colors - over all we really liked this place and plan to come back next year!!

                    We had a very enjoyable stay. House was clean, cosy, comfortable. Nice new washer + dryer and sharp knives for cooking! Close to the centre of town and great views of the Event Site to check wind conditions. Can definitely recommend and would stay here again.

                    I stayed here with two co-workers for 4-nights while working in Hood River. We chose to try a house rental instead of a motel so we could be closer to the downtown area and be in a more relaxed and comfortable setting. This house worked just fine for that. We loved the porch and swing with the great river view. It was a perfect place to relax and unwind. There was plenty of sitting in the living room and the kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans/utensils. The place does have a TV - but no TV channels. It worked great for watching the DVD movies that we went down to the Wal-Mart and bought. The place also does have AC, one window unit in the kitchen/dining area. While this cooled that area down nicely, the upstairs got pretty toasty in the afternoons (we had some 90+ degree days during out stay). The evening breeze and cooler temps at night made sleeping with the windows open perfect. The place was clean and well maintained. I would stay here again.
