About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area is the nation's newest park. It is home to world class recreation and leisure of every kind. On any day you have so many options it is hard to choose! You can ski on Mount Hood in the morning and head to the river in the afternoon for world class windsurfing, kiteboarding or sailing. Hood River is in the heart of the Colmubia Gorge Scenic Area. At 704 Montello we value fun and a casual stay. If you need a hotel type property, with Italian granite counters, and Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, then this one is not for you. If you need a place that you don’t have to worry about leaving a figure print on the patio door and want to relax, we are absolutely your best value. We strive to provide a comfortable, clean, safe, fun atmosphere that won’t break the bank. We try to make 704 Montello the best VRBO value in The Gorge and Hood River. There is a lockable rack for windsurfers and lockable shed for sails and bikes (let us know if you need this). You'll enjoy the views of Mt Adams, Underwood Mt. Strawberry Mt, and don't forget the Kreps Ranch and Burdoin Mt. PLUS...

You have views of The Gorge, plus the Columbia, Hood and White Salmon Rivers. Enjoy your morning coffee on the east deck while you watch windsurfers and kiteboarders sail at the Event Site. With such a clear view, you can easily see the current wind conditions. So...not windy yet? Relax, have another cup while you plan your day's activities.

BTW, we are interested in doing House Swaps for San Diego, Mexico or SLC.

If you would like to discuss a house swap,

please call 503 806 1525.

AND be sure to check out our VRBO 469616 on Maui!

About Robert or Dodie

Hello I came to Hood River to windsurf the year Mt St Helens blew. I knew then that it would become a world class destination. Today it has everything any one could want. I enjoy being on the river for sure but also like to ski on Mt Hood, ride the gorge on motorcycles, play golf, & white water raft. Dodie loves to ride, fish and vist all the wineries. Problem is we have to work, and play here in the gorge is serious; work gets in the way!

Robert or Dodie purchased this townhome in 1995

Why Robert or Dodie chose Mt. Hood, The Gorge

704 was build as a Gorge Home in the Mid 90's for the views and it's close location to downtown Hood River. With its 3 decks and great views and hot tub, sometimes I don't even leave! This is a house we live in, please feel free to use items in the kitchen. You will also find a stocked bar, beer, wine, soda in the fridge and snacks for you when you ck in. Plus, always a pizza in the freezer if you arrive hungry and tired and just want to kick back and relax after a long traveling day.

What makes this townhome unique

Short 5 block walk to downtown. Million $ Views. Lots of parking. Hey this is the Gorge!! Your looking for a rental here because you know The Gorge is FUN CENTRAL for all ages!!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Heres what Cindy and Tom from Flordia said about VRBO 307711

Thanks Robert and Dodie for your Hospitality
