About Leila and Craig Boyd
Craig and I first moved to the Columbia River gorge in the late 80's because of the windsurfing. After moving away from the area for the past 20 years or so we are happy to be back in Washington and able to purchase a vacation home in the gorge.
Leila and Craig Boyd purchased this House in 2017
Why Leila and Craig Boyd chose Underwood
We love the quiet Underwood location. You don't have to deal with Hood River's traffic if you don't want to, but it's close by when you do want to go there. Being close to the Hood River bridge gives you easy access to places in both Washington and Oregon.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with this property because of its uniqueness, lodge-like feel, and amazing views.

Beautiful home with a great back porch with a wonderful view of the Gorge.
The home was clean, well furnished with a great view of the Gorge. We enjoyed our stay, we were so comfortable there we wished we would have had the time to stay longer. Very well equipped with great extra amenities throughout. The 2 living area are large and spacious, the pictures do not do this place justice. We wish we could go back in the winter to enjoy the fireplace. The location was great for day trips all around the Gorge; we even drove into Portland which was not that far away.
what a view
When I rented the home I knew it had a view, but wow! The house was perfect for us. Everything so clean and nice. The inside with all the wood was beautiful. The best part for me was sitting on the deck relaxing. We definitely want to come back to have more time to do some exploring in the area.
Picture perfect view and wonderful home!
We are regular guests at VRBOs all over the country and in Europe and each time has been great and also unique. My husband, our two grown daughters and I stayed at Octaview Lodge to attend a friend's wedding nearby. The view of Mount Hood and the Columbia River is nothing short of amazing! You are at least 1000 feet above the river so the drive up is your typical winding, wooded, mountain road. Scenic and wonderful! The house was very clean and well laid out with comfortable seating inside and on the deck. The kitchen had everything we needed. Bedrooms were nice and comfortable. It has a very sophisticated media setup, which we did not have the opportunity to use but we liked having the complimentary wifi. Hood River is a great town, but this is SO much more enjoyable than any hotel ever could be! We were an easy 12 minute drive to groceries/eateries in White Salmon and 15 to HR. I wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy more of the area, but perhaps we will have a chance to return. Our deposit refund was prompt and that is always a nice plus. Thanks Leila and Craig!
Great place with a fantastic view! House was clean and ready for our girls trip. Nice layout to enjoy the view. Beds and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home!
Amazing view of Mt. Hood and Columbia River with great privacy.
Great house with an amazing view, unique architectural design, good location and privacy. Overlooking the Columbia River with snow covered Mt. Hood in clear sight, we even had opportunity to photograph the Milky Way on clear nights. We have rented through VRBO numerous times from Alabama to British Columbia and have enjoyed very good experiences, but this is the best all around experience to date. Initial communication with Leila was prompt and she provided all information needed for check-in in a timely manner. Highly recommend Octaview Lodge.
Awesome Home and Views!!
This home is very well cared for, nice quality furniture, linens and sparkling clean etc. View of the Gorge and Mt. Hood from the large deck. The owner was very quick to respond to emails if we had any questions. We had a great time and will be back!
