  • Great Location and Amenities - Small Bed!

    "We came into town for the Annual Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting as it was my birthday weekend. The loft is absolutely beautiful and is very well appointed. The location can't be beat, you can walk to everything downtown and it was nice and quiet with a gorgeous view. One whole wall of the apartment is windows and it is light, airy and surprisingly private. The only thing that was not for us was the small bed. I wish I had a tape measure because I would bet it is a double and not a queen. We sleep on a king bed at home and we could not get a good night's sleep on such a small bed. The bed itself is really comfortable, so if you like to snuggle all night, or just one person slept in it, it would be great. I ended up on the couch so it was a little less than what we wanted but it was only due to our preference. The property management company was just great. We will definitely rent from them again, we'll just find a rental with a king bed!"

  • Fantastic Stay!

    "We stayed in late December for a couple of nights. The condo is a great place to stay. It is convenient to all things in Government Camp and Timberline Lodge. It is spacious and very well appointed. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a get away in Government Camp. We are already talking about coming back and hopefully will be able to stay in the condo again!"

  • Unexpected stay at cozy cabin

    "I brought my mom to the Government Camp/Mt Hood area while she was visiting for the first time. We were actually reserved to stay nextdoor in Gretel but received a call from the owner that we'd be staying in this cabin (Hansel) instead as there was a mix-up with the cleaning crew. Greg, you need to post more pictures on here! The bedding in the master bedroom is updated and feels like luxury hotel linens and there are SO many sleeping options upstairs; children would have a blast up there with all the rooms and tv. I managed to nap on the couch - also comfortable. Close to Trillium Lake and Timberline Lodge, and you can walk to all the restaurants and coffee shops in town. Greg is a really nice and flexible owner. Would recommend this cabin, and I'm sure Gretel would compare, to others when staying near Mt Hood."

  • 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!"
