  • Perfect for a winter family getaway!

    "This was a perfect location to bring our teenage nephews and 10 year old son for a fabulous winter getaway! We all had plenty of space to spread out if we wanted with the three floors. The views are amazing from each level from both inside and out. The home is nicely appointed with modern finishes. The main floor was comfortable for a larger group and being a person who loves to cook, this townhome has one of the best kitchens for cooking that we have had at any VRBO. Going in the winter it was a perfect place to stay- we were within walking distance to the great shops and restaurants downtown as weather allowed, and an easy, short drive to the ski resorts for fun in the snow. The washer/dryer and heated floors made for a cozy and relaxing homecoming after skiing on the mountain. Grilling on the covered porch was perfect for hungry boys. We will definitely be back!! Such a great place to stay and the owners awesome to work with!"

  • Weekend Getaway

    "My wife, my siblings and myself, eight people in all, rented Mountain View for a total of three nights this past weekend while up in the Hood River area for a family gathering. The house was perfect for our needs and the views of Mt Hood from the living room made the stay even more enjoyable. And the proximity of the property from Hood River and Mt Hood was excellent. I would definitely stay here again for my next trip to Hood River."

  • One of a kind get-a-way

    "This home provides such a unique experience of both modern living and the outdoors. Its secluded enough as a get-a-way, but close to everything the Gorge has to offer. We've visited it with in-laws and kids as well as alone as a couple and it served all wonderfully."
