  • Nice Unit

    "We stayed in one of these units last year during spring break so we knew what to expect with the layout -- two flights of steep stairs. This unit was very clean and the owner was very responsive to our inquiries and questions. The front bedroom's bed was very hard, but other than that, we enjoyed our stay. The development has a very nice pool area and large hot tub in the woods, plus a sauna, that we enjoyed each day."

  • Dreamy little cabin!

    "We had an absolutely incredible experience from start to finish. Contacting and communicating with Lynn was a breeze, and the location was so serene and beautiful. The decor of the cabin was absolutely adorable and well thought out- really impressive. We loved the deck for eating outdoors, the wood stove for heat, and the big windows that let in the most wonderful light throughout the day. This cabin is the perfect place to relax and enjoy some nature away from the hubbub of the city, yet it is still close enough to access Hood River very easily. We really did not want to ever leave :) Thank you Lynn!"

  • Beautiful, spacious river view home

    "Thank you to Amy who was always available & bent over backwards to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. We had a lovely time at this home which was well appointed, clean, more spacious than the home I live in and had a view to die for. We spent most of our time sitting in chairs overlooking the river, but the kitchen as mentioned by others is large and capable of handling much more than one cook. The living room was also a great place to hang out in the evening the the supply of movies for both kids and adults was outstanding. Would come back here again without hesitation."

  • A Perfect Peace of Heaven

    "We had the most amazing time. Felt like something out a fairy tale. The weather was stormy and yet peaceful. We cuddled on the couch and listened to the flowing water from the creek off the back porch. From the outside to the inside it was a dream come true. I would love to come in the spring as I would love to walk through the back yard which they have created a park like environment with cobblestone accessories fire pits, trails, gardens. Very Romantic Wish we didn't have to come home."
