About Bob or Kerry

Both owners are professionals and live on site. But, both main house and Cottage have complete privacy.

Bob or Kerry purchased this bungalow in 1985

Why Bob or Kerry chose Underwood

The Cottage is an apartment space above garage with a very nice deck attached. Spectacular views. At the top of a bluff 1,200 feet above Columbia River, you look directly at the River and Mt. Hood.

What makes this bungalow unique

Very popular windsurfing and kiteboarding location. Great road biking and Mt. biking from front door. Hiking, fishing, golf, kayaking (and probably everything else fun) is right here.

The area also has a number of vineyards, wineries and the famous Hood River Fruit Loop is only ten minutes away.

I love this place!I am not just talking about this great rental.This area has so much to offer,and this apartment is close to all of it!I love that The Hatchery/Swell City are so close,the windsurfing there is some of the best in the Gorge!This rental has been a part of my vacation for years,and the view and location are what I return for.This year though I have to give a shout out to the owners for their upgrades,they did not go unnoticed!New dishwasher,washer/dryer,tv,living room furnishings,gas fireplace and your installation of the air conditioner was appreciated on those 95 degree day's!I love this place,and I'm not talking about the area!

we may come to the area for the windsurfing,but what has really brought us back year after year is this beautiful rental apartment.It has EVERYTHING!The view is fabulous,you could sit all day watching the river and Mt Hood,the eagles flying by.The full kitchen has everything a gourmet chef could need.If you don't want to cook,HR,White Salmon and Bingen are a short drive away.The flannel sheets soft and inviting on comfy beds,the privacy great,awesome owners,and did we mention the hot tub?!!! So appreciated after sailing,golfing,or biking,all of which are close by.We do not want to stay anywhere else,this place has it all to make our vacation the best!
