Recent Mt. Hood, The Gorge reviews

  • Beautifully decorated for Christmas!

    "We spent the weekend before Christmas here, and we had a wonderful time! We didn't expect a beautiful Christmas tree fully decorated! We almost brought a small tree for our Christmas, but we didn't have to! The Cabin is wonderful, all of the beds are very comfy. The living room area is very spacious with plenty of seating for anything from watching TV to playing board games with family. There are two fireplaces, and the kitchen is fully outfitted. We felt like we were at somebody's place, and not so much a rental property. The creek was flowing very heavily while we were there, and we enjoyed the sounds it created. We will most likely return again to this special place! Thank you!"

  • 4 generation family retreat

    "Great vacation rental! Private, spacious and even well stocked. Clean, modern and cozy - most of all, comfortable and relaxing. My family enjoys the Hood River/Gorge every year - this property is our new rental choice."

  • Good Value and Great Location

    "The Columbia House was a nice place to stay while visiting the Gorge and Mt. Hood scenic areas with friends from out of town. The location is excellent -- you can walk almost anywhere for shopping, restaurants, and evening entertainment. Safeway is less than a mile away and walk or bike-able. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need including basic spices and condiments. All appliances and equipment are in good working order. The house is clean and with comfortable furniture, nice linens, and mattresses. BBQ outside is very nice. Attractive landscaping and general care is evident. The house is in excellent condition. There are also plenty of nooks, porches, and levels for individuals in larger groups to have privacy or come together for meals and social time. Having said all that, there are two points our group felt were important to make. First, two of the four bedrooms (sleeping 3 of the 8) are in the basement. This was not clear from the description and only hinted at with the photos. The basement is not finished and smells damp even during a very hot summer. Not moldy, just musty. One bedroom with a double bed is unfinished with exposed pipes that bang away when water is being used, a very low ceiling, and no window or form of ventilation. No one would consider this space a bedroom, although it is furnished like one. It is really just storage space. The other basement bedroom with the trundle is very tiny with a small window at street level that looks out to the tires in the driveway. It is finished, but not very pleasant and very noisy. The basement bathroom is finished and nice. This is the other full bath in the house, the other being on the 2nd floor. The deck off the basement is nice as well for a view of the garden and river. Just keep in mind with larger groups over 3-4 that several will be stuck in this area. There appears to be another bedroom on the second floor, but for some reason it was locked and "off limits". The second issue we had was the noise from I84. Because of the proximity to the freeway, there is a constant background sound that can be very loud while on the back deck and also from the open bedroom windows. There were times when the train and trucks combined to roar us right out of our conversation, and we are a loud city group used to urban noise. With these caveats in mind, we felt the good far overcame the bad, but we wanted others booking houses to be aware."

  • Pleasantly surprised!

    "My family came out from CO for a trail race outside of Gov't Camp and met some friends from Portland to stay in this property. The pics were good but we were so impressed by how much prettier it is in person. There were more than enough beds, the house was very clean and everything was just as promised. The owner was amazingly communicative and helpful in making our stay and comfortable as possible. I highly recommend this house and we will definitely be back...this time to ski!"
