About The Owner

We are born and raised in the PNW, but didn't discover the gorge until the early 80's. It's truly a magical place.

The Owner purchased this house in 1994

Why The Owner chose Oregon

We bought this house so that we could windsurf off our beach. The kids have always loved the gorge, too.

What makes this house unique

The beauty of Gorge will inspire you; every direction offers a spectacular view. We love swimming in the river, sailboarding and kiteboarding, biking...the activities are endless.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing week at your house in Rowena - it couldn't have been better....sun, wind and lots of time to relax. Thank you for letting us stay - it really is paradise

perfect vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful rental experience. The owner was prompt, thoughtful, and friendly in all her communication. The property is gorgeous, inside and outside, and generously accommodated our family of 6 adults, a toddler, and a housebroken dog with a bedroom and bathroom for each couple. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and we enjoyed the big outdoor grill. Three indoor seating areas -- extensive library with game table, tv room with piano, and living room -- and multiple outdoor seating areas, shaded and sunny, gave us lots of gathering places; and it was great to have both the indoor and outdoor dining tables. Watching the river and trains provided endless entertainment; as did the ping pong table, croquet, bocce, and kayak. The caretaker greeted us upon our arrival and assured us of his availability should we need anything. Highest recommendations for a relaxing vacation!

Wonderfully relaxing home, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two-night 'girls getaway' here. The location alone is amazing - stunning views up and down the Columbia from the deck and the living room/dining room. Huge lawns on the river and behind the home, plus wonderful deck (including covered area with water feature) and patio areas. Every room was just as featured on the site, kitchen appointed, everything you'd need. Plenty of room to spread out and relax. The house was so relaxing we didn't do much sightseeing this time (But there is plenty to do within a very short drive, or even walk or bike ride). While we were relaxing on the deck we saw paragliders, kite-boarders and of course, wind surfers. There are two parks close (but not too close!) by for variety - but you really don't need to leave the grounds. We would definitely stay here again - it must be beautiful year round (and it's enough to the east that even if it's raining in Hood River, apparently it's often dry here!).

Lovely Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location and lots of space for activities or just lounging. Close to Hood River activities (10 min), but far enough away to not feel the crowds. Absolutely stunning scenery and jogging distance to two smallish state parks.

We had a group of 6 individuals and we each had a bed, very comfortable and clean. The house has several outdoor games, the outdoor ping pong was a big hit. The expansive deck is incredible, covered in some areas and open to the sun in others.

I found the listing to be accurate and the owner was easy to work with. I would definitely consider returning should the chance arise.

peaceful retreat in the gorge

  • 5 of 5

we had the pleasure of enjoying the property for 3 nights in may. absolute peace and serenity of this wonderful house on the river. when we arrived, we felt right at home and let out a big sigh..we loved the expansive lawns, the well maintained gardens, which made us feel like we were at home. the rooms are all decorated so nicely and makes you feel like this is your home away from home, not sterile. the owner has put a lot of attention to making you feel comfortable. the kitchen is well equipped with everything that you could possibly need. brand new stove and oven, great big refrig. the dining and living room are right on the river, with view to die for.

we had dinner and drinks each night in the covered porch, sitting next to the peaceful fountain..listening to the resident frog, with the most beautiful croak!

if you were into water sports , this is the place. it has it's own private beach, to launch into the river , from the beach, or the beautiful lawns.

i didn't want to leave..just sitting on the porch, or a lawn chair...listening to the breeze, watching the geese, the barges , going up and down the river...heaven. we can't wait to come back.

thank you to the owners...
