Recent Mt. Hood, The Gorge reviews

  • Adamsview -1 The perfect getaway!

    "We enjoyed a long weekend at this house last week. I won't repeat what everyone else has said (great views, nice location, etc.). We enjoyed the outdoor grill and the well-stocked kitchen. There were plenty of towels and the beds were very comfortable. Most of all, the owner is great to work with. I made my reservation only 4 days in advance, and he was very quick and easy to work with. Our deposit was returned in less than a week. I highly recommend this rental!"

  • BEST RENTAL HOME IN HOOD RIVER

    "It was a pleasure to work with Kim. Her home is beautifully maintained and very inviting. The landscaping is immaculate and the views from the front porch and tree house loft are spectacular. The Adirondak chairs and hammock were so comfortable all 3 generations in our party wanted to sleep in them. We enjoyed lazy mornings on the front porch sipping coffee while gazing at a snowcapped Mt. Adams, the Columbia river, and once in awhile a train could be seen chugging along in the background. It is a storybook setting. The main house is spacious, yet cozy. We truly felt like we were 'coming home' at the end of each day. The kitchen and bath were well stocked. The amenities were also a nice touch, from luxury soaps and candles to super soft and comfy linens and towels. The tree house loft exceeded expectations as a retreat space. The groom spent the night before his wedding in the loft and was relaxed as recharged for the big day. The backyard is also a serene space to enjoy the clean, crisp air. The location cannot be beat. Walking distance to downtown with lovely shops, restaurants and breweries in one direction and a short drive to the grocery store in the other. This home made our first visit to Hood River a memorable one. We look forward to returning soon. Thank you, Kim, for giving us a such a beautiful backdrop for a milestone event and turning us on to the beauty of Hood River."

  • 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."

  • Flawless experience!

    "It was my turn to host Thanksgiving this year so I thought we would all (twenty family members) stay at one place instead of hotels. Maple River Retreat was everything I could ask for! It accommodated us all comfortably with ample room to cook, play and just relax, there are beds for 16 not 20, but this was not a problem because some folks brought air mattresses. When we ran low on wood to burn Becca promply restocked us, even on Thanksgiving day. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at the Resort at the Mountain (I would recommend it). Some of my family members had never been to the NW and needless to say they were speechless with the beauty and the retreat! Becca thankyou so much for sharing this wonderful house I would not hesitate to come back!"
