About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps max of 16 adults.)

Riordan Hill Retreat is a beautiful 2700 s.f. 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom cabin, with a fantastic view of the Columbia River. It is a one of a kind property. The cabin was built with fir, maple & oak lumber milled right on the tree farm. The cabin has a huge wrap around deck on three sides. Spectacular sunrises & sunsets are the norm at this very private cabin.

Riordan Hills Retreat is a 10 minute drive from the city of Hood River, on the west side of the valley and is immediately adjacent to a recreation paradise of over ½ million acres of public land. World-class windsurfing, kite sailing, kayaking, mountain biking, sailing, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, hiking, fishing and hunting are all available within an hours drive. An extensive mountain biking and hiking trail system can be found right out the back door.

About Paul Mansur, Owner

I am a graduate forester who bought this 25 acre treefarm back in 1982. The tree farm is managed under the American Tree Farm System with the goal of providing sustainable, multiple use crops of wood, water, wildlife and recreation. I love this Columbia Gorge/Hood River area and want to share this beautiful piece of God's creation with those who share a similar love of the natural world. It is my hope that everyone who stays at Riordan Hill Retreat will have the best vacation of their lives.

Paul Mansur, Owner purchased this cabin in 1982

Why Paul Mansur, Owner chose Hood River

I bought this property because it borders on 1/2 million acres of public land & yet is only 10 minutes from downtown Hood River. Building a cabin in the woods had been a dream of mine ever since I was a small boy. I love the beauty, the peace & the solitude that this property provides. It is my desire to share this special place with others.

What makes this cabin unique

Nature, scenic beauty, wildlife encounters, solitude, peace, restoration of the spirit, adventure, the visit of friends are just a few of the feelings & emotions that come to mind when I think about time spent in this cabin by myself or with my family & friends.

Spectacular place and setting for you and your canine companions!!

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular place, with a spectacular view, and in a spectacular setting to enjoy what the Columbia River, the Gorge and Mt. Hood areas have to offer - all with your canine companions!!! We travel as much as possible with our dogs because they are part of the “family”, and as good “canine citizens” they appreciate when someone, like Paul, opens up their accommodations to well behaved and well mannered pets. For people Riordan Hill Retreat is fabulous, very close to Hood River (as stated) as well as many of the areas’ activities that folks enjoy. However, moreover the cabin itself ,including the great wrap-around deck, is ideal for dogs as is the property as a whole, which boarders miles and miles of trails in the adjacent recreational area.

We HIGHLY and enthusiastically recommend Riordan Hill Retreat for you and your canine companions!! We also encourage those smaller groups like us (we stayed in the cabin as just a couple) to check it out because Paul was more than willing to work with us and was incredibly accommodating.

Happy “tails”!!! (pun intended)

Owner's Response: As a responsibe dog owner who does a lot of traveling with my dog I have always been dismayed at how many folks will not allow pets on their properties. When I built Riordan Hill Retreat I was determined to make it pet friendly. I am always happy to hear my guests report how well they & their pets enjoyed their stay.

Summer in Hood River

  • 5 of 5

In spite of very hot weather 100+ it felt like it was at least 10 less at the cabin.

Great spot for hiking right out the door.

Also nice for star gazing and we were there up to the meteor shower.

Very comfortable casual spot.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The location is great, 10min away from town yet it felt remote in the wilderness. The views are spectacular. So pleased that we stayed in Riordan resort and not in a hotel.
