Beautiful well appointed yet drafty vacation home.

  • 4 of 5

We had everything we needed in this lovely older Home. It snowed before we arrived, and it was still cold. The house could use more insulation, but we were given several electric heaters. The location and view were divine!

The Most Comfortable Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay at this property. The kitchen was great, the view was stunning, the yard was great and the outside shower was the best! If we go that direction again, we will definitely try to stay here.

A Charming Visit to Hood River

  • 5 of 5

My family, of a variety of ages, was very comfortable in this home in Hood River. It was a joy to fix meals and visit with each other with a view of the river. Having separate sleeping areas with a bathroom on each level was perfect for us. The bungalow decor made us feel very cozy.

Hood River Gem

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming back to this house for many years now, and look forward to it every year! The property is well maintained; has a well provisioned kitchen for cooking; and comfy, quiet rooms, for a great nights sleep.

A signature amenity is the outdoor shower! After a long day of mountain biking, enjoying the outdoors, with a view of the Columbia and mountains beyond, is a perfect way to end the day!

The house is on a quiet street, but a short walk to the center of town. It's base to explore all that Hood River has to offer!

Beautiful home in Hood River!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for the 5 of us to stay in while in town for a family wedding. My husband and I had the upstairs bedroom, and the other three all had their own rooms and bathrooms on the other two levels. The furnishings were lovely, the beauty and view of the Columbia River was breathtaking, and the close proximity to town for shopping/restaurants was an easy stroll. The originally planned day after wedding brunch was cancelled, and this home was comfortably large enough to host the brunch (my husband has 8 siblings and numerous nieces & nephews who all stopped in and some were even a bit envious that we had such great accommodations!). We enjoyed a few fresh tomatoes from the vines in the garden on the expansive lawns. My husband especially enjoyed his view and coffee from the outdoor shower! We hope to have the opportunity to stay in this home again. We highly recommend this home. Thank you, Elizabeth!
