Recent Mt. Hood, The Gorge reviews

  • Very nicely furnished

    "We recently stayed at this cottage near Zig Zag. We were able to get last minute reservations for a holiday weekend. Overall this is a nice, cozy and comfortable "cottage". Please take note that this is actually a two story townhouse, connected to two other townhouses. Luckily no one was home at either neighbors that weekend. But it surprises me this isn't mentioned in the listing. The setting is nice and woodsy. The furnishings are very comfortable and the house is decorated nicely, although some dusting in the corners and window sills is needed. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans. Only one wine glass, but we suffered through that inconvenience. The biggest disappointment was that there was not a fireplace/firepit on the deck as pictured. We called to ask about that and were told it had been taken out a few days before because it had rusted through. So it was out of our control, but dissapointing because we love to be outside by a campfire. The hot tub was enjoyable. We appreciated being able to bring our dog as well. There is a community pool and tennis court but no instructions in the cabin about how to find it or use it. Eventually we found it down a nearby gated road. Cautious community neighbors did question us as we were walking around since we looked lost! Overall it was a nice comfortable place. Hopefully they will replace the outside fireplace soon."

  • Perfect for Wedding Guests

    "If we could have extended our stay at the River-Song house we would have! BEAUTIFUL views, amazing property and very spacious for our 18 guests who traveled to be a part of our wedding. Not only was the bedroom configuration perfect, but very spacious for everyone to spread out and enjoy the common areas. This was the perfect location for a getaway but still close to Hood River amenities. I would hands down rent this property again. Thank you for a wonderful experience VRBO!"

  • Location, Location, Location

    "What a wonderful experience. The cabin is perfectly located just far enough away from the main street in Government Camp to enjoy the quiet beauty of the woods yet only a walk away from the fun. We visited the Green Cabin to attend our daughter's wedding and the cabin was furnished with beautiful furniture, games and firewood plus all the standard amenities. The owners were very helpful and easy to communicate with and their directions to the cabin were super. We plan to return this winter and use the Green Cabin as a base for skiing and adventure."

  • Luxe excellence

    "Everything was perfect for us from the moment we opened the door. City living with a view of the river. Clean , comfortable, well set up from the kitchen to the bedroom and bath. Nicely decorated. The neighborhood is great and walkable and the area is spectacular. For food we especially liked Boda's Kitchen , where we picked up wonderful treats for our days touring and hiking and the best chicken dinner ever! Driving along the Historic Columbia River and hiking and walking to the numerous waterfalls, stopping at Multnomah Lodge for lunch, Crowne Point for the views and the architecture, more walking at The Nature Conservancy Preserve along Rowena Crest and following the s curves of the Historic Highway filled our days. We barely scratched the surface of the wineries with tastings at Maryhill with it's phenomenal views and setting and at Cathedral Ridge, right in Hood River. We will return to this region and would not hesitate to stay at Luxe Loft again."
