Recent Mt. Hood, The Gorge reviews

  • It was just what we hoped it would be

    "The cabin is woodsy, comfortable, clean, and friendly-feeling. You have to pay attention when you're on the stairs leading up to the second floor because they are narrow and a little uneven, but visually they are great. The business side of the rental transaction was smooth; no issues at all. We will definitely be back."

  • Very Comfortable Studio

    "My husband and I stayed at the Studio on Post Canyon for a few nights in September, 2014. John and Alison are great hosts and are quick to respond to any questions you may have. We did several hikes in the Columbia River Gorge which was awesome – we have never seen so many waterfalls - and it was wonderful to come back to such a comfortable place at the end of the day. The view of Mt. Adams from the back patio was an added bonus. It was so nice we never went out to eat! We walked down the road to a winery – very close and convenient. The studio is very clean, spacious and comfortable and has all kitchen utensils you could want to make a snack or a full meal. They even have a coffee grinder and a French press coffee maker which was an added bonus for us. We hope to be back – there is a lot more exploring to do in the area!"

  • Nice Unit

    "We stayed in one of these units last year during spring break so we knew what to expect with the layout -- two flights of steep stairs. This unit was very clean and the owner was very responsive to our inquiries and questions. The front bedroom's bed was very hard, but other than that, we enjoyed our stay. The development has a very nice pool area and large hot tub in the woods, plus a sauna, that we enjoyed each day."

  • House with Character!

    "The location was fantastic - but if walking be prepared for a tough up hill from downtown. This is an older home that has lots of character and fun hiding places for kids. The kitchen is very well stocked and that was appreciated by our family. It is a very comfortable home not fancy or luxurious. The heat was hard to regulate. It seemed the heat would not come on until the temperature was well below the setting. The house also did not heat evenly making the bedrooms very cold while lower level was warmer. The fireplace worked well. It really warmed the entire first level of the home. I would suggest that the owners provide a fireplace screen and tools for the fireplace."
