  • 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."

  • Second stay just as enjoyable!

    "We held our family reunion here for the second year in a row and found it just as charming and comfortable as last year! There were 14 adults, three toddlers and an 8 week old and we used every bit of the space. The large tables and deck seating and the large well-equipped kitchen made for ease of meal preparation for the dinner teams. There are many wonderful hikes within a reasonable drive of Panorama Lodge and in Hood River we had two playgrounds for the toddler outings. Rosauer's and Safeway are great grocery stores not too far away."

  • Wonderful Retreat Home!

    "This home is amazing! It is beautiful, rustic, and spacious! Not to mention, it has a great view with huge windows and a large deck! I have rented this home three different times. With the hot tub, ping pong table, hiking, and more; this is a restful and fun place to stay! It has been such a great place to get away from the busyness and go to a cozy, safe place in the woods! Also, the owner has been GREAT to work with!"

  • Just what we were looking for!

    "My husband and I stayed here this past weekend with friends and had such a great time! The owners were easy to work with and very friendly! The unit was much bigger than expected. Plenty of room for people to hang out in and not feel cramped. When vacation renting, I have occasionally run into problems with there not being enough supplies, towels, extra pillows/blankets etc. We had none of those issues with this property. We were able to cook a couple of meals over the weekend and they had everything needed in order to do so (the grill is a big plus). They have TONS of books and dvd's (great variety), and a big TV with cable to watch all the football our hearts desired. With it being a short walk from town, this was a perfect location for us. If we wanted to grab a coffee in the morning, we could walk there and if we wanted to go down to the river, it was a 5 minute drive. I went for a run on our last day and from the property, there is very easy access to Old Columbia Hwy State park, where the views are absolutely breathtaking. It was very clean, well supplied, an easy process, great owners and a great location. We will definitely be staying here again in the future."
