About John Bryan
Alison and John Bryan moved to Hood River in 1993 from Berkeley, California with the intent of trying out small town life. The experiment was a complete success. 'Small town life suited us well and allowed us to raise two beautiful children and enjoy day upon day of the beautiful Hood River valley. Although we are slowing down, we still enjoy boating, snow skiing, kiteboarding, gardening and hiking minutes from the studio.
John Bryan purchased this Studio in 1994
Why John Bryan chose Hood River
Hood River and the Columbia Gorge offer some of the most unique seasonal recreation and activity of anywhere we have been in the US. Within 20 minutes of 'The Studio', you can enjoy world class hiking, mountain biking, windsurfing and kiteboarding, kayaking and glider flying. The Hood River valley's unique location sets it close to the city of Portland, Oregon, a major metro area, but also protects its unique beauty and its future with geographic location and the National Scenic Act, which limits development. Hood River and the Gorge will have that 'small town' feel for a long time to come.
What makes this Studio unique
Small town means friendly people, who bend over backwards to offer you help, advice, and encouragement for whatever your travel goals might be. Small town means no traffic jams, lots of bicycle traffic, walking and local fare. Should you take the day off from windsurfing, kiteboarding or any of the numerous recreational offerings, there's always a winery to visit (5 minute walk to one) or local street parties, farmers' markets, craft fairs and plenty of nightly music and restaurants to visit.

My husband and I stayed here for 9 glorious days.The studio is as pictured; two spacious rooms and a bath with a patio.And it’s spotlessly clean.The bed and pillows were very comfortable.Plenty of hot water.Large capacity washer and dryer.Open glass sliding doors and the front door and you have lots of fresh air flowing through.And the view is amazing from the patio.There is a nice parking area close to studio too which upon arrival a personalized welcome sign was on privacy fence so we would know where to park.While the studio is nestled between the main house and a cottage with a permanent tenant,it is very private.This is much appreciated. After a busy day taking in all that Hood River has to offer coming back to the studio was a delight.If we are ever back in the area we would definitely stay here again.Thank you John and Allison.
First trip to Oregon
We loved our stay in Hood River. Great location. Wonderful studio with view of Mt. Adams. We will be back to experience all the seasons!
Clean studio with beautiful scenery
My husband, daughter, and I spent three nights in Hood River. This rental was clean and provided plenty of space for the three of us (our daughter slept in a pack n play). My husband and I enjoyed watching the sunset from the back patio. It was less than a 10 minute drive to downtown Hood River and the Indian Creek Trail provided a good running option right from the VRBO. The property managers were wonderful: kind and thoughtful but also respectful of our privacy and not overbearing. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. Hood River has so much to offer!
Thanks for your kind assessments. We love that our Studio is a comfy base for all the adventures that Hood River has to offer. There is so much to explore here.
Exactly as pictured! Sparkling clean, full of all amenities, beautiful weather so we had a wonderful view of Mount Adams the entire time. Very comfy bed! Fantastic kitchen - we grilled out and cooked in It really is a chef’s kitchen with everything you need. Close to great wineries and a wonderful restaurant! Easy check in & out with a very helpful host:)
Lovely Setting and Accommodations
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely and well-appointed studio. The setting and views are beautiful and we enjoyed the privacy this studio offers. Everything we needed was available and the unit has a large, very nice kitchen/living room area. The entire unit is so large it does not feel like a studio. We enjoyed the rural setting and beautiful vistas, but still were only minutes from downtown Hood River.
This property is perfect!
It’s away from the hustle and bustle of the city but literally 3 minutes away to drive to! My husband and I had the best time here, we even had chill days at the studio because of how cozy and ideal it was!
Walking distance to three major wineries: Cathedral Ridge (2007 Winery of the year), Marchesi, and Hood River Wineries. Bike directly to Post Canyon mountain bike trails and expert courses. It's the country with the location of the city. 2 miles outside of downtown Hood River.
