  • Awesome condo!

    "Our stay was delicious! It's a very nice condo close to the river and not far from Mt Hood. We stayed two nights and enjoyed the sauna and the hot tub in the club house as well as the large condo we stayed in. Price is a little on the high side since you have to do quite a bit of cleaning yourself, like start dishwasher and washer, bring out garbage, set the heaters on a certain setting, fold the cover for the master bed and leave it at the end of the bed and so on..."

  • Amazing Retreat

    "Our family celebration (surprise retirement party for Grandad) at this home was totally wonderful. We found the home as advertised, a luxury retreat with amazing gorge views and that could be an understatement. We had plenty of room for 8 adults and 3 small children. The property was easy to find but private once there and a quick drive across the bridge to Hood River. Believe the photos - this place is as gorgeous as it looks in the pictures. We appreciated the high chair, pac 'n play, toys and books for the little ones. Missed the ping pong table but then again - we had plenty to do without it. The private waterfall is definitely an added bonus. We're trying to come up with our next excuse to come back!"

    "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."

  • Fantastic Views, Comfortable Home

    "Two couples from NJ recently spent a long weekend in Hood River with this cabin as our base for exploring the Hood River area. We wish we'd had more time, as there is so much to do! Kayak rentals, sailboard lessons and kiteboard lessons are just some of the water based activities on the Columbia that are available right here. Hiking trails are also plentiful. The listing is accurate in the description and in the photos. We were easily able to find the cabin in it's semi-remote location, even though we arrived in the dark, using the detailed directions provided by the owner. For anyone seeking a "cabin in the woods" getaway, we can recommend VRBO 302136!"
