Recent Mt. Hood, The Gorge reviews
"My husband, dog and I spent a relaxing week at Silver Cedars. I have "creaky" knees so we slept in the cozy "Yosemite" room downstairs and took advantage of the level trail along the river. We also enjoyed nearby Trillium anf Timothy lakes, although it was difficult to get an early start when breakfasting on the porch and drinking the fresh coffee that's provided. So fun to play house with the wraparound windows looking out on to green-ness."Guest: Karen Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 2, 2014View listing
"Our stay at the farm house worked perfectly with friends and our dogs - well-equipped and comfortable home with room for all. We wanted a Gorge experience, and we certainly got it! The views of the Colombia River with barge and train activity was fun to view from the deck and the living room. The location allowed us to take in all the offerings of the area - Hood River, hiking, wineries and fruit stands on both sides of the river. Returning to the farm at the end of the day provided a quiet haven to enjoy meals and conversation."Guest: E & B and the pups Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 27, 2014View listing
"I was looking for a place to celebrate my sister's 60th birthday when I saw this listing which would accommodate the four sisters and our 5 daughters. Not only was this a surprise party for my sister (and she was surprised as we had not all been together for 18 years), but we were all surprised and elated with the accommodations. Loved the open floor plan, the hot tub in the screened in room and the back deck. We spent five nights. We had ample towels and bedding. The home is close to Timberline and Skibowl which we visited - Also enjoyed Mt. Hood Coffee Roasters (less than 10 minutes away) and their tour. We ranged in ages from 24 to 66. Thank you Becca for such a beautiful retreat which truly felt like home!"Guest: Kathleen K. Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 27, 2014View listing
