  • Bon Fir

    "My wife and I decided to stay in a cabin for a nice relaxing anniversary trip. We could not have picked a better cabin. It was clean, well decorated, and obviously well maintained. The owner definitely takes pride in his property. We are looking forward to our next opportunity to stay in this cabin."

  • Lovely quiet relaxation

    "We've just returned from a stay at the cabin; it was a much-needed quiet space for rest (and work, of course!). Although you might worry as you drive into a neighborhood that the cabin isn't secluded, don't. The setting is such that it feels quite private, what with trees and fences on the property edges to create a lovely little space. There's a well-trod path along the river that you can follow (and which others do too, so expect to see a person or two occasionally walking past at the river's edge). The sound of the river is beautiful, and makes you feel nestled in the woods. The cabin itself is cozy, clean, and simple. We only used one of the bedrooms, but slept excellently so I assume both beds are comfy! The kitchen has the basics (a collection of pots and pans, plenty of nice dinnerware); the only things I missed having were a rubber spatula and my own (sharper) knives. But for a cabin weekend, you'll be fine. It's all easy to find and intuitively organized, something I appreciate when visiting an unfamiliar kitchen. After we'd made the reservation, I ended up spraining my ankle very badly (still in a walking boot or on crutches) so I wasn't able to take advantage of hikes in the area. However, my temporary disability really made me appreciate the fully accessible shower, complete with a fold-down bench. You've got the hot tub outside to soak in if you miss having a bath (and the hot tub's way better!). Overall, this is a great choice if you want to get into the woods but don't have the time to go far from Portland. It's also a great base for going farther east towards Mt. Hood and doing hiking and/or skiing, depending on the season. Perfect for a couple, or a couple of couples, you'll enjoy some low-key relaxation to the sound of the Sandy."

  • Fantastic vacation home with stunning view of Mt. Hood

    "This is a beautiful, spacious home with an amazing view of Mt. Hood (and the stars on clear nights!). It's a short drive to Hood River, fruit loop stops, wineries, etc. Comfortable beds, plenty of seating, and luxurious amenities including the sauna, hot tub, and awesome steam shower in the master bath. The kitchen is well-stocked and perfect for large groups with plenty of dishes and two dishwashers. We had a wonderful weekend and hope to return."

  • Perfect Home for Our Vacation

    "12 of us took a couples trip to Hood River and stayed at this incredible home, and it was absolutely perfect! The home is gorgeous, well maintained, and spacious. The men had a great time downstairs playing pool, air hockey, and watching sports game in the movie theatre. Us women enjoyed the wonderful kitchen and living room, with views of the mountain and lots of areas to relax and cook. The home is located really close to the town, so we were able to take morning walks to the town. Each room is well decorated and has a different feel to it. The owner, Peg, is friendly, accommodating, and really well organized. We will be making this trip an annual event now!"
