  • Amazing 2nd time around

    "This was our second summer in a row at this place ( see my 2013 review ). The condo was as amazing as it was last summer. The kitchen had everything we needed and the place was super clean. TV and DVD player in every room and tons of jigsaw puzzles for the kids . Amazing view from the balcony or from the dining table and bedroom. The condo was roomy and it's living area, kitchen and dining area are all open . A new play yard is in the same complex ( about 2 minutes walking ). Very quiet place and excellent for relaxing after a long day in Portland or Mount Hood and Trillium Lake ( The last two are few miles away ). Thank you Todd and we will be back next summer."

  • AMAZING

    "Our family of 6 adults loved our stay! Home was warm and cozy with clean and simple decorations. Dan & Bridgette were wonderful to work with....I had to reschedule twice and they made it very easy. We enjoyed skiing and hiking nearby and then returning to a nice fire with great movies and games. The town is close by, so if you forgot something.....no problem. We will be returning for sure."

  • Great Location and Great Cabin!

    "Stayed here for a Valentines weekend getaway with another couple. We absolutely loved the cabin and the seclusion, also the location was great since it's only a couple minutes away from welches. The guys spent a day at the golf course while we treated the girls to a spa day at the Resort at the Mountain but didn't have to pay for overpriced, small rooms at the resort. Perfect combination for us to save some money and enjoy being away from the crowds. We loved the jacuzzi and bbq'ing on the deck while watching the local wildlife grazing in the yard (deer). The owners were extremely nice and ready to take care of anything that weed needed. All in all it was a great find and we will definitely be back!"

  • Ideal location, spectacular views, cozy accommodations!

    "This rental was a great experience! We had an extended stay in hood river, and this place offered all accommodations we could need, as well as one of the most amazing views we could want. The landlord was incredibly kind and accommodating and we would definitely stay here again. The location is ideal. It is an easy walk to almost anywhere downtown and a quick drive to the heights."
