  • Great Mountain Getaway!

    "My family just returned from a terrific long weekend at Raven's Nest. Despite fairly low snow levels this year in many areas, the cabin was surrounded by snow and wintery trails to explore, just above Government Camp on the shoulder of Mt Hood. It is a beautiful place. While there we hike, skied, and explored the outdoors. But the best part was returning to that beautiful, warm and comfortable cabin for showers, food, music and good cheer! Great fun!"

  • Gorgeous is right!

    "A group of 8 of us stayed at this lovely home the first week in September. It was very clean and neat upon arrival and it was clear that the owner's took great pride in ensuring their home was well cared for. The room sizes were nice and several living rooms/deck areas for everyone to gather. The close proximity to downtown made it ideal for getting around Hood River. This is the nicest VRBO we have stayed at and would recommend to anyone. Thanks for the great accommodations for a fabulous week in the Gorge!"

    "We had a great time on the property and home. Very mystical place, you can feel the energy from the home and the property that surrounds it. Loved the antiques and the different parts of old historic homes build into the home, gives it such history and you wonder who lived in those houses before they were demolished. Thanks for letting us stay there and I wish we could of talked to the owner a little more but we got caught up unpacking . Would love to come back Sue McInnes"
