Recent Mt. Hood, The Gorge reviews
"I have to say that of all the homes I have ever rented, this was the most comfortable and well-equipped home of them all. My only regret was that we did not rent it for longer. Our family felt the same and everyone enjoyed our time there immensely. I cannot wait to rent it for a week or two and use it as a family gathering place. What a special place! We arrived so much later than we anticipated because of running errands for my daughter's wedding. We didn't get to the house until 10:00 p.m. I was dreading arriving to a very cold, dark house. We arrived and found the heat on in the house which made it so cozy, warm and inviting. Plus, all the lights were on so we were not unloading all our belongings in the dark. We immediately felt at home. What a great touch! And then there was that spectacular fruit basket, homemade truffles and lovely welcoming note....just perfect! Plus, I soooooo appreciated that the home was already stocked with TP, etc., for us. The little touches like having towels, sandals and little spa fragrance packages by the door out to the hot tub were so special. We never used the hot tub because we had no time, but what a great touch! Plus, to know all the food we left behind was going to a nearby shelter made us all feel good when we had to leave some of our food behind. It was so wonderful that everything in this home was in good repair and clean as a whistle. My son-in-law who is a chef in a very nice restaurant in San Francisco, prepared a fabulous meal for all of us on Saturday evening and he loved that the BBQ worked very well and there were plenty of utensils, pans and serving dishes to cook with. The fantastic fire we all enjoyed in the living room on our only evening at home together was spectacular! My 4-year old grandson told me on the plane that he wanted the pilot to turn the plane around so he could go back and stay. Never have I been so completely comfortable and happy with a VRBO rental. Thank you for caring so much about your home and for caring about your guests having a wonderful stay."Guest: Sue Date of Stay: October 2013 Review Submitted: December 2, 2013View listing
"We have stayed at various VRBO homes in the Northwest the past eight years. This home is truly a "must do". The special attention to detail stands-out. Being greeted and provided a tour by the owner provides much more insight than the usual reading of many pages. The kitchen was extremely well supplied with cookware, dishes, utensils, etc. We have stayed in several well appointed homes. This was clearly the most welcoming and truly prepared for guests."Guest: Bud H. Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: February 21, 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
"The cabin is back off the road a tiny bit. The creek you can hear all night long from any bedroom. Plenty of clean towels. My 6 kids couldn't get enough, My husband and I just smiled the whole week. The dog I think lived in the creek, lol. We went to lil Zig Zag falls as well. I text the owner I think 3 times about things, he was more then HAPPY to help with the little issues. There were little touches that made it so much better for us, the safety gates to the Wii. I can't convey the fun we had. Did I mention we took Grandma too? There was plenty of room still! Very roomy cabin! We drug our feet when we had to leave! We will be back next summer!"Guest: Aimee R. Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 20, 2014View listing
