Recent Mt. Hood, The Gorge reviews
"The photos of the home are accurate. The house was clean and in a great location. It was in the heart of government camp and close to the ski resorts. The house was well maintained and the appliances worked well. The owner was helpful answering our questions and was easily accessible by phone. Our family enjoyed our stay immensely and definitely would stay there again."Guest: Julie-Ann L. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 26, 2014View listing
"Adamsview2 is one of those vacation rentals that proves to be as good as the listing looks. The owner is very friendly and thorough in making your stay seamless from arrival to departure. Hood River is a great place and Leigh provides more than enough info about the area to keep one busy exploring the best the area has to offer. Rental is very clean and well appointed.

"For a large group this house is terrific. Plenty of room for everyone to have space but close enough to enjoy each other's company as desired. Super close to town so that most activities are within walking distance"Guest: gk Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: October 10, 2014View listing
"We were two families (4 adults, 6 young kids) and this house fit our needs/wants to a T. The location was perfect for us. We skied Timberline as it was the hill that best suits our range of skills/needs (nice lodge, good dining, etc) - and this house is essentially at the base of the Timberline exit off the highway. And literally right next to Summit Ski Park, after hours the kids sauntered over to the Summit hill with sleds and it was like a young child's dream to have a hill like that all to themselves for sledding - just steps away. We adults found our amusement watching the kids from the kitchen windows that are perched high and tall with great view, sipping our coffee and laughing hysterically. The house was a joy from the moment we entered. Our kids walked in first and with a fun blueprint the house felt like an adventure from the start (they didn't want to leave). The kitchen was great, the living spaces were cozy, and the design integrated the spaces in a way that provides a festive group experience. Having had a vacation rental ourselves in the past I will attest to the great attention to detail. The list goes on, but the kitchen was well equipped for group cooking/dining, with drawers cabinets all labeled - making it orderly/efficient. There were plenty of games, movies, etc. which the kids indulged in. We happened to have extremely wet weather and were pleased to find two washers and two dryers to make our laundering at days end quicker. Some billiards and hot tubbing for adults later in the evening was certainly nice as well. Coming from Portland it's a short trip for us and we will certainly be back!"Guest: Chip R.
