Property description

The Mountain View Cottage is a cozy, light-filled cottage with a large, airy sun porch--perfect for enjoying the Mt Adams view with your morning coffee. Located in the heights of Hood River, the cottage sleeps four, with one bedroom (queen-sized bed) and a full-sized sofa bed in the sun room. The cottage comes with a completely equipped kitchen, as well as a gas grill, picnic table and large, sunny yard with plenty of room for adults, children and pets to play.

A full basement offers storage for your toys and outdoors gear.

The cottage is within easy walking distance of the community pool, tennis courts, Jackson Park, a fabulous bakery and several great restaurants. On Thursday evenings amble down to the Gorge Grown farmer's market on May Street for dinner, entertainment and some of the best organic produce of the Hood River valley.

World-class wind sports, swimming, white water boating and mountain biking can all be accessed within ten minutes. Downtown Hood River with its art galleries, movie theaters and fine restaurants is a long walk or short drive away. In the winter, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and sledding are just 35-45 minutes away at Mt. Hood Meadows, and 1 hours away at Mt. Adams.


Taylor Avenue is a quiet street that borders Hood River's Jackson Park, which has tree-shaded picnic tables, a playground for children and adjacent tennis courts and pool.

Definitely plan to have breakfast at the nearby Pine Street bakery, then head on down the street for homemade tortillas and delicious organic food and deli items from the Farm Cafe. La Taqueria (3 blocks away on 13th Street) offers some of the best Mexican food and margaritas around!

The cottage has a driveway that can easily accommodate two cars. On-street parking is also provided.

The cottage is within easy walking or biking distance of almost anything you'd need. In a pinch, Columbia Area Transit can provide dial-a-ride, door-to-door service through the Gorge.

Car: Recommended

The Gorge is a great place to play, with outdoor activities including but not limited to skiing, wind surfing, kite boarding, mountain biking and hiking. There's also a lively arts scene, with galleries, community theater and a sinfonietta. The Gorge is blessed with great restaurants, wineries and brew pubs--and so much more! If we haven't mentioned it here, just ask.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Leigh and Bengt have lived, worked and played in the Columbia Gorge since the early 1990s. They were joined in 2001 by their son Finn and in 2007 by their border collie Pippin. Bengt is a hydrologist, Leigh is a writer and college instructor, and FInn specializes in babysitting for younger boys. They all four enjoy camping, hiking, mountain biking and sports.

Why the Owner Chose Hood River:
The Mountain View Cottage is a sweet, light-filled cottage with a great yard and beautiful views of Mt. Adams. In the right season, feel free to pick cherries, peaches or pears on the property; in all seasons, the best bakery in town is just two blocks away. We love our cottage and hope you will too.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We fell in love with the cottage the first time we saw it because of its 1920s charm. We love how every room is filled with light and little details that make it cozy and welcoming. The Mt. Adams view out the back windows is spectacular and the deep back yard lends itself to lazy afternoons and bar-b-ques.
