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

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.

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?

Reviews can be important. Noted one negative review calling it a 'shack'. Sure it's a little funky with rough exterior and the AC unit sticking out the window, but also totally nice inside with bamboo hardwood floors, nice paint and clean. And yes the dogs next door were occasionally noisy but never at night and they usually settled down pretty quick. Quiet and comfortable with a good kitchen. If you need to have a more spacious sleek modern rental with larger fridge, W/D and laundry, you'll pay a bit more but if you just need a comfy home for a few days this one is great. I plan to stay here again. Owners are nice and responsive and will do whatever to keep you happy. (have to use a lighter, not the peizo starter for the grill) And of course the outdoor recreation scene is amazing!!

great alternative to a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

my Mom and I needed a place to stay for my niece's graduation and all the hotels were sold out. Thank goodness because I found this charming cottage instead! Very small but perfectly laid out for a couple or two people with the comfy fold out futon. Wonderful deck to have morning coffee and check out Mt Hood too! Plus, adorable White Salmon Main street is just two blocks away!
