About Eric

We (Meagan and Eric) are newlyweds with two kids, ages 4 and 12. We live in Portland and Bend (long story). Meagan is a Family Law Attorney and Eric is a Finance guy. Though our lives are very busy we are actively involved with our Hood River Cottage.

In addition to running 13.1s we ski, snowboard, Mtn. bike and sail so the Portland, Bend and Hood River triangle works for our busy lives.

Eric purchased this house in 2001

Why Eric chose Mt. Hood, The Gorge

Growing up in California and attending College in San Diego, I have always been drawn to the California beach town lifestyle. Quite simply put, north of Santa Cruz, Hood River is perhaps the only true representation of that lifestyle. When you throw in Mt. Hood and the added year-round activities there was no other choice for location. I looked at properties for two years, with the thought of renovating and eventually (vacation) renting. When my Realtor saw the property, the views and its close proximity to downtown, she contacted me immediately and we made the first full offer, securing the property its first day of listing.

What makes this house unique

We believe that you will find our Cottage to be the perfect fit for your romantic get-away or small group of friends and/or family due to its proximity to Downtown (literally steps) and the laid-back, open layout of the house. Large slab granite counter-tops in the kitchen and bar. Flat-screen TV and Wi-Fi for the times you want to lounge around. Large hot-tub on one of the back decks for soothing relaxation after an active day. Oh, did I mention the beautiful Columbia River views?! Well, they're pretty awesome!

We do allow pets (dogs) with an additional nightly fee and deposit. I'm pretty technical with the description and would not call the property 'pet friendly' due to the limited outdoor space and bluff-side location (read steep). However the house is comfortable for pets (dogs) that are acclimated to hanging out around the house (please make sure to walk your dogs to allow for a potty break away from the property).

Bluff cottage

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect weekend getaway cottage. Warm and bright home. Great kitchen space for cooking. Easy walk to downtown and great view from deck hot tub. The house has a great flow to it for kids to run around. With 2 rooms great for quite time. The snow added Beauty to the place.

The cabin was everything I expected and more. We took my 90 year old Mom to the Hood River Cabin for Christmas with my youngest daughter and everything was perfect. Big kitchen to cook our Christmas dinner,awesome views,plenty of room and a very welcoming space!!

Wonderful AC for late Aug temps

Enjoyed hot tub early A.M.s

Had to buy ant traps...a definite problem inside

Kitchen dishes limited... even for two guests

Mattresses very uncomfortable...after tenting across the country, was really looking for more comfort sleeping

Great location, cozy cottage

  • 4 of 5

The great location and the hot tub made this a nice place to stay. We ran into a snag with the tv functionality. Which can be important when you vacation with a kid (and during college football opening weekend), but Eric went out of his way to accommodate us.

Overall, the stay was a great getaway. The location and hot tub really made it work. That and all the gorge has to offer

Owner's Response: Thank you Patrick and our apologies for the broken HDMI adapter. Fortunately we were able to diagnose and repair prior to the next guests check in, I only wish we could have resolved during your stay without the streaming workaround. We are happy that the rest of your stay was uneventful and beyond your expectations. Cheers, Eric

Very convenient to downtown

  • 4 of 5

parking is a little tight here, but it is everywhere in hood river. The cottage was perfect for our stay. Beds are soft, kitchen well done, hot tub clean. We would stay here again.

Have to recommend 6th Street Bistro - Sit upstairs if not on a romantic getaway, (if you want romance sit downstairs), sit at the bar if Chris (owner) is working it and you're not with minors, otherwise upstairs no bar. Food is great and sourced locally and Chris is a blast.

Journey across the river via the Hood River toll-bridge and grab a pint and bite at Everybody's Brewing in White Salmon. Best beer in the area, though if you're planning on a few you may wish to hit one of the breweries downtown.
