About The Owner


I have been coming to the Scenic Columbia River Gorge for over 20 years - I love this magical place; so full of the Best that Mother Nature has to offer - from the best wineries, fruit orchards, biking & hiking trails, waterfalls, lakes, mountains, and the list goes on and on...if you love the outdoors - you will love it here!

Why The Owner chose Bingen

I first came to the Columbia River Gorge to Windsurf which has always been a big passion for me. I have seen Hood River grow, and develop into an amazing Community of likeminded people who enjoy nature and the great outdoors.

What makes this house unique

I love gardening and really enjoy planting flowers and being here to see them blossom. I have planted an Apple tree, Japanese Pear tree, and a fig tree (that has gifted me some wonderful figs!). As well I have also planted lavendar, rosemary, sage, irises (large purple ones that bloom in June)and many other sweet adornments.

My projects last year included remodeling the kitchen and bathroom - along with refinishing the original fir floors. You will love the warmth that this cozy home has to offer!

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time at this unit and I very much enjoyed my stay. The unit is well equipped, clean and comfortable. The property is very nice with fruit trees laden with ripe fruit (figs, apples, plums) while I was there (late July). The location is nice and central to outdoor activities. It has nice views, and Denise is great host with lots of good inside knowledge and good suggestions for activities.

Thanks Denise for the nice stay!

A nice place to come home to.

  • 5 of 5

Was very pleasant and quiet (except for the occasional train whistle). Very liveable with all the amenities you need. Denise is very responsive and helpful. Convenient location yet off the beaten track. Love the porch.

Charming place perfect for enjoying the gorge

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect place for our week at the gorge. A short drive to Hood River but far enough to be out of the crowds. White Salmon and Bingen have cute little downtowns and we enjoyed walking around. Denise is a perfect host and her home is immaculate and comfortable. We only had one really hot night and would agree that a window AC would help. The trains run day and night so ear plugs are suggested for light sleepers.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you here! It has been very warm indeed; as such I am looking into getting an AC unit for next Summer.

Needs work,not a lot, but some major issues need attention. Communication lacking.

  • 2 of 5

We where greeted with a clean,friendly cottage well prepared. At 1am a member of our party was stunned to find a Canadian couple staring through the lounge window! A discussion followed in which we learned that the downstairs bedroom which has internal access to the main cottage was occupied by this group for the duration of our stay.They had been advised of our presence ,we had not! which begs the point as to why at 1am they would wish to peer through the window which involves climbing onto the balcony.

The bathroom door and shower door are out of alignment which means it isn"t possible to quietly close or open either. My wife awoke from a nap on the couch to find herself covered in ants, as was the kitchen bench and other parts of the cottage. Top marks for the response of the owner in taking our reservation and the welcoming touches. But we should have been informed of the fact that we were expected to share the property. The continual train whistle blasts throughout the night 5/8 blasts at each crossing finished any chance of a restful night but that is not under the owners control.

Owner's Response: Hello! Thank you so much for your review. I am so sorry that I failed to let you know about the couple that was downstairs in my suite. I was doing friends of a friend a favour and It was very last minute. Regarding internal access from downstairs - there is a door lock latch upstairs so that there is no internal access (unless it is kept open by you). Regarding the shower: Unfortunately, I know that the shower is out of plumb. The fellow that installed it didn’t take into account that it’s an older house and did not level it accordingly. I will see if I can somehow have that 'fixed' without having to rip it out. Regarding ants: I have never had complaints about ants in the living room & I will take remedial action right away. Having said all that, I would like to reimburse you $100 for the lack of communication and your troubles . Again thank you for your feedback - it is much appreciated.

Great Garden Getaway in Gorgeous Hood River

  • 5 of 5

Denise's property in Bingen was a great stop. Denise loves her home, she keeps updating it and keeps improving her beautiful yard outside. If she is staying beneath you in her garden suite, she completely and thoroughly minds her own business, and while I was there, all she was doing were improvements inside and out all day long. The beds are comfy, the space is very airy and breezy and bright and freshly painted. She has simple, lovely style and taste throughout the house. No clutter. The location is quite amazing for gorgeous gorge views and sunsets inside and out. Its set high up on a hill surrounded by a little neighborhood and a steep mountain, nice neighbors, (they all would wave,) and night time breezes. What else? There's a riverwalk a mile away along the Columbia for a quick walk, with events happening around Bingen, White Salmon (which is an adorable village very close by) and Hood River, its a truly great location to experience this amazingly beautiful area. The peeps at Uplifted Coffee hut are great and good drinks there on the way to Hood River. The Oddities shop in Bingen is a neat stop if you like weird and wonderful antiques. And watching the kitesurfers in Hood River is like a zen meditation. I love this neck of the woods, what a unique gem of an area. Also, Denise is super nice and attentive to whatever you need, and she loves her house, and that energy can be felt. (There is a passing train regularly, but its background noise, unless that noise bothers you, its not a deterrent to staying at Denise's!)

Thanks again, Denise,

Peace and <3, Leela

Fruit Orchards, World class Flyfishing, white water kayaking, and rafting on the White Salmon river are just a stone's throw away. The famous fish hatchery, Swell City, and Doug's Beach are just a 10 minute drive away. The bird's eye view from Dog Mountain along with many other hikes are all on the Washingtion side of the Columbia River.

Bingen and White Salmon also have some of the best Bistros and Restaurants that the Gorge has to offer - all a 2 minute drive away.
