Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + 1 Sofa-Bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Beautiful 1900's home with old world charm and updated amenities. We have owned this home for almost 10 years and love the house and the area. It is conveniently located in the town of White Salmon (on the WA side) with easy access to hiking, kiting, windsurfing, biking or just walking into town. White Salmon has an excellent brew pub (Everybody's) that attracts visitors from Hood River - with a great view of Mt. Hood from the deck, and a new bakery (White Salmon Baking Co.) that rivals the best you could find in practically any city.

The garden is lovely and relaxing and the house has a deck in front and back. There is a charcoal BBQ and a great long picnic table for outdoor dining. You will find raspberries and grapes growing in the garden - depending on the season.

The house has 2 floors and a basement - lots of storage for gear! More photos available upon request.

About Becky & Doug

We have owned this home since 2007 as our vacation home. We have a 9 year old and she has a wonderful time here. We absolutely love the area and the house. We both windsurf which was the initial draw to this area - but we have since found out about all the other amazing things to do. This house is very relaxing and the little town of White Salmon is so quaint in comparison to the busier town of Hood River. Perfect vacation home for relaxing family getaway.

Becky & Doug purchased this house in 2007

What makes this house unique

Our guests love the house for its cottage charm, the front and back decks, and that there's no TV (but sadly, no-one can live without WiFi internet access...).

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our week here! It was our first time staying in White Salmon after many vacations in Hood River, and it did not disappoint. A beautiful character home with a lovely backyard and an easy walk to everything you could possibly need - delicious bakery, great restaurants and brew pub, groceries, parks, playgrounds etc. The White Salmon outdoor swimming pool was definitely a highlight for our 6 year old son and the bike park looked great for older kids. We hope to be back again next year!

Perfect house for our visit!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The neighborhood was very quiet (relaxing) and still close to the market and restaurants!

A lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

Well cared for older house with all the amenities. Located a few blocks from restaurants, markets and a great library we were able to walk everywhere. House itself is a well-loved, comfortable home with comfy beds, nice sheets and towels and a great kitchen. Lots of books to read in a charming reading area plus enough games to keep a family occupied your entire stay. Hosts were easy to reach and very helpful, in fact they went out of their way to make sure house was warm for our arrival on a cold winter day.

A Fabulous Girl's Trip

  • 4 of 5

Two girlfriends and I went to White Salmon and rented this wonderful house, which was perfect for the three of us. We each had a bedroom. The kitchen & bathroom had every condiment you could dream of. Nice back yard to sit in when the weather was sunny. A 'reading' nook with a wonderful reading lamp. A playroom/bedroom for kids, which we didn't use but it was sweet too. We were up there to visit my son who lives there and my daughter from Seattle came down as well. Went to the Harvest Fair, ate out, ate in...all of the above. Truly a comfortable house!! Thank you

Owner's Response: Hi Jane, We're so sorry you were prompted to give us the only poor review we've ever received! Most people love the fact that we don't have a TV, but to make it very clear, I've noted that in the Amenities Notes section of the listing. And I'm sorry you weren't able to find the microwave oven - we keep it under the counter so there's more counter space. I wish you'd asked about it during one of our phone calls. Thanks for the feedback though - it's always helpful. Best - Doug & Becky

Thoroughly enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Convenient location-walk to the amazing White Salmon Baking Company bakery and the grocery store

Takes about 10 min to drive to Hood River. Preferred White Salmon as our home base. Wonderful breezes at night. Lots of space. Great backyard for our daughter. Beautiful home with all the conveniences.
