Hood River house description

Nestled in a residential area walking distance to shops, the Gorge Getaway is a newer home with a great view and bright decor.

While the thrill-seeking members of the group are windsurfing, kayaking, skiing, or whatever... the others content with a book or other quiet activities will enjoy the comfort of home while taking in the majestic beauty of the area through large picture windows.

Windsurfers and kite-skiers at 'the Marina' are visible on windy days. Sternwheeler vessels and tugboats pushing cargo barges ply these waters and provide an interesting nautical variety. All this, plus seaplane activity, can be seen from the comfort of the Gorge Getaway.

ADDITIONAL RENTAL INFORMATION:
* Transient room tax of 8% and 1% Oregon tourism tax is added.
* No Smoking and No Pets.
* See Gorge Getaway Website for a video tour and further information. (see link below).

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1995

              About the owner: My wife, Kelly, & I built this home in '95 after feeling a strong connection to Hood River and the Columbia River Gorge. We enjoy sharing our home with folks who also like the region. We do our best to provide a clean, nicely appointed home to our guests. We answer emails and phone calls promptly and we offer concierge-type knowledge to help you fully enjoy your vacation. Karl Hadley

              Why the Owner Chose Hood River:
              Windsurfing brought us to Hood River in 1992. We taught our kids to windsurf here in the summer and snow ski in the winter. Every year we discover more interesting things to do. Our kids are grown, but I still like windsurfing, and we do more hiking, bicycling, golfing and gliding. If a good book and the couch sound better one day, the local vineyards offer wonderful wine tasting, and the local restaurants provide exceptional cuisine to cap-off the day.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our home offers a sweeping view of Mt Adams to the north, and the Columbia River, with it's never-ending activity. You will be walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Hood River. The home theater system has a large flat screen TV, Blu Ray player, and it connects to the internet for Pandora music or Netflix if you have an account.
