  • Rainforest Retreat

    "My family and I meet every year at this time for a pre-holiday gathering and this year picked the Mt. Hood area for our meeting place. The setting is beautiful. The home is situated right on the Sandy River and it was wonderful to hear it during the night. We found a great, easy hike about 5 miles from the house. The house itself was comfortable - 4 separate bedrooms, so the nine of us fit just fine. Big screen TV's in the great room and both master suites, but only the one in the great room received cable reception. The others must be just for watching DVDs. The kitchen was OK. Stove definitely needs replacing. It was hard to keep a consistent temp on the surface elements and it was cracked almost beyond use. There were multiple lights that did not work. 2 of the 4 canned lights in the kitchen were out and the 3 lights over the eating bar didn't work. Also, some hallway lights out as well. Lights on back porch didn't work. No grill brush for the outdoor grill and it really needed cleaning. No tissue, only toilet paper in the bathrooms. I don't know if the owners are aware, but might want to check with whoever maintains the home to make sure your guests have proper lighting and the expected extras. Pool table was nice upstairs, but the pool cues are in need of repair (tips). These were all minor inconveniences as overall we had a wonderful time and really enjoyed our stay."

  • Absolutely the best!

    "This chalet not only lived up to our expectations it surpassed them by a mile! It was so well kept, well stocked and so comfortable that the local businesses ( although I'm sure we're very nice) missed out on our patronage. We hope to make it back next year"

  • Beautifully updated, older home near downtown

    "I recently booked a home for a girls weekend in Hood River and was very pleased! The house comfortably slept 6, everything worked perfectly and we were within walking distance of downtown . Well stocked kitchen, nice shaded patio and a lovely view of the river. I would love to come back and stay with my husband and 3 younger kids, it was very accomodating."

  • Awesome condo!

    "Our stay was delicious! It's a very nice condo close to the river and not far from Mt Hood. We stayed two nights and enjoyed the sauna and the hot tub in the club house as well as the large condo we stayed in. Price is a little on the high side since you have to do quite a bit of cleaning yourself, like start dishwasher and washer, bring out garbage, set the heaters on a certain setting, fold the cover for the master bed and leave it at the end of the bed and so on..."
