About Sunnie & Joe

We are a family of 4 and love the Gorge. We love to windsurf, bike, hike, SUP, ski or just hang out at the cottage with our two young kids.

Sunnie & Joe purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Sunnie & Joe chose Columbia River Gorge

We bought the property for us to use when we go down to the Gorge to windsurf. We like the location since it's close to our favorite windsurfing spots, the Hatchery and Doug's Beach. We also like the laid-back small town feel of White Salmon.

Once we had two kids, our trip to the Gorge was not as frequent, and so we decided to do the vacation rental.

What makes this cottage unique

It's quiet and private with a wonderful Mt. Hood view from the front of the house/deck. It's also very cozy and comfortable and has fully equipped kitchen. We love staying at our cottage, and our kids love the swing on the yard as well as the tree house. Oh, from our cherry tree on the yard, we get tons of cherries each year that our guests can eat and take home as much as they can.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the tranquil/charming little cottage and thanks for making our transition move a great one.

Home sweet home

  • 5 of 5

first the house was very clean. It is a small place but the bedroom was sufficient size with a queen bed, armoire, a dresser and a chair. The living area was also cleverly furnished and provided coziness. The bed felt very comfortable and the futon was a quality one. The dining table and the chairs were in good shape as well.

I felt at home at this cute charming place staying for an extended period. It is very quiet and private as it sits on a quiet residential street next to a church which has almost no traffic. Even on Sundays I was able to sleep in. The best part is the view from the kitchen/dining and the nice sized deck. And also it was nice to be able to walk to town for coffee, diner and groceries.

Everyday I walked my dog to the park across the Main Street to get her exercised which was a treat not having to drive anywhere.

I hope to stay here again when I return.

fun getaway cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Sunnie and Joe were responsive and friendly hosts. If there was anything needed, they were quick to resolve the matter. The cottage is cozy, but stayed cool even during a heat wave. It has everything you need, but definitely just for two people.

The neighbors are quiet and friendly. The close proximity to the downtown allowed one of us to go windsurfing, while the other did yoga.

Perfect location - loved the views of Mt. Hood

  • 5 of 5

The blue cottage was the perfect spot for my two week stay in town! It was really nice to be able to grill on the deck while looking out over the vista with Mt. Hood in the background. It was the perfect size for just me and my dog - more spacious than the pictures look. It would be a little crowded for my taste for anymore than a couple staying for more than a night or two.

Quaint accommodations, excellent location to visit the Gorge

  • 3 of 5

We were very happy to find a location such as this to visit the Mt Hood/Gorge area. The accommodation is good at a fair price. Aside from the window coverings being badly in need of replacing, the bed was very comfortable for a great night's sleep. The kitchen is well-equipped and the sheets and towels were of nice quality. The White Salmon/Bingen area has many good places to eat, is convenient to a park (excellent for dog owners), and the town vibe is welcoming. We would stay here again. The host may want to update the Amenities listed, as we were disappointed that there was no DVD player, stereo, or "TV" as advertised. A large CRT/DVD Combo in storage was offered; we opted to not carry it in and move things around. The TV has no cable or antenna provided to watch even weather - important in the area; it is a "Smart" TV so you may log in with your Netflix, Hulu, etc. - not what we expected. I was unable to utilize the WiFi with my laptop, even following the instructions to reset the system. Maybe the password made available needs to also be updated?
