Spacious, clean, and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in the Dalles. Directions were accurate and easy to follow. Check in was a breeze, and the house was beautiful, clean and very comfy. The expresso bar next door was the cherry on top! Will stay again the next time we're in town for a concert at Maryhill.

This was a phenomenal place for us! Molly and Greg are excellent hosts. The guest house is gorgeous (like out of a magazine photo spread) and yet SO comfortable. We knew nothing about the area and were looking for a nice place to stay while we were exploring. Perfect! I would recommend this to anyone - just know that there is a flight of stairs to get up to the guest house. The cafe attached to their home is a wonderful plus! Thanks Molly and Greg!

Elegant Decor --Everything is Band New- Close to Downtown

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this newly redone 2 bedroom, 2 full bath home (with master bath). My wife enjoyed the deep soaker tub. The home is very large for a 2 bedroom and is open concept. There is a nice deck off the living room; to enjoy the coffee bought next door in the coffee shop, owned by the owners. It is close to the center of town, but up the hill in a nice neighborhood. The coffee shop is in an rustic remodeled church building.

We would highly recommend this to people coming to this area.

Thanks Molly, for a great stay.

Amazing find! Highly recommend.

We (two couples) enjoyed a fantastic weekend wine tasting in the Gorge. Was fun to go beyond Hood River for this trip. Well worth it. The home is well appointed, clean, warm, and equipped with everything you need. Two bedrooms, and two bathrooms make for a perfect amount of personal space. The bathtubs in the bathrooms were spa deep and inviting and we all had plenty of hot water.

We cooked in one night, and ate at the local Thai restaurant (wonderful!) one night. Add Thai to your list; it rivaled the best Thai we've eaten in the Portland/Willamette Valley area.
