  • Great family getaway

    "The photos of the home are accurate. The house was clean and in a great location. It was in the heart of government camp and close to the ski resorts. The house was well maintained and the appliances worked well. The owner was helpful answering our questions and was easily accessible by phone. Our family enjoyed our stay immensely and definitely would stay there again."

  • Awesome Escape!

    "This gem of a home is nestled up on Fir Mountain and is the perfect way to escape from it all, without being too far away from it all! There is something for everyone there-rec room, hot tub, tons of space, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, and the most amazing views! Hood River is just a short drive away for excellent dining, nice wine, and terrific shops...not to mention the killer skate park my teen loved."

  • Relaxed & Refreshed!

    "What a nice stay we had! This was the perfect place for my partner & me. We loved being able to walk everywhere yet still be able to retreat to our private deck to watch the stars at night. The owners were great & helped make this weekend work for our tight schedule which made a huge difference since our trip was so last minute. Having no AC wasn't a problem with the large sliding patio doors & ceiling fans. We loved waking up to the fresh air & fantastic views! Only things worth mentioning is the driveway. It's great because you can have your car right outside your door & off the street but the gravel driveway can be a little tricky for some vehicles. Our coupe could do it but very sloooooowly. Also, the sprinklers turned on each day we were there and they soaked our car. Not really an issue just something to note in case you drive a convertible. We can't wait for our next stay!"
