4 bedroom 3 bath view home with hot tub, great back yard, fireplace & pool table
Unwind, reboot and recharge here where the spectacular view will take your breath away. Whether enjoying the stunning panoramic Columbia River view from almost every room and the expansive front deck and hot tub, challenging your family and friends to a rousing game of pool or darts, or cooking a delicious meal together in the large open living/dining/kitchen, this is the perfect vacation get-away. A/C, WiFi, music speakers inside and out, grassy backyard with hammock and firepit for roasting s'mores and great conversation. Our home is less than 10 minutes to downtown Hood River and 45 minutes to Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Area. Return home to a soak in the hot tub after biking, windsurfing, kiting, hiking or rafting or enjoy the cozy fireplace for your your apres-ski pleasure. Enjoy a glass of wine from the deck and watch the sun set over the Columbia. Direct view of the windsurfing/kiting launch-- know what sail/kite you will rig before you even leave the house! The access to the water is quick and easy.
This is a perfect launching pad for wine tasting in the Hood River or in Washington from Bingen to Maryhill with a few great wineries and cideries right in Mosier to taste and enjoy their views.
Mosier has as very cool vibe with two restaurants (Mosier Company and Rack & Cloth) serving incredible, locally sourced food, beer, wine, cider and spirits often times coupled with live music on their outdoor patios. Both are an easy walk from our house. There is also a cute ice cream parlor in the summer (Route 30 Classics). They also have a fleet of e-bikes available for rent to enjoy the incredible, empty roads in Mosier. A new small grocery store is scheduled to open in Spring 2018.
Mosier offers it all in a less crowded and more affordable package including savings of 8% in lodging tax versus Hood River. All this while still being a short 6 mile drive to downtown Hood River.
Our house offers world class road biking right from the front door with direct access to The Old Columbia Highway (Route 30) and the amazing Mosier Tunnel Trail to Hood River. You can also take a short hike from the house to the beautiful Mosier Creek Waterfall and miles of incredible wildflowers. Access to the Columbia River via Rock Creek waterfront park is only a 3 minute drive down the hill. This provides an incredible launching point for kitesurfing, windsurfing, paddle boarding, kayaking and swimming.
Our house is very kid and family friendly, and perfect for a large group. It is located on a quiet cul de sac that is perfect for kids to bike, scooter and skateboard on while the parents can watch over them from the decks and patios.
Four bedrooms. Upstairs has master with queen bed and en-suite bath. Second bedroom upstairs has a full bed and twin bunk beds. There is a second full bath upstairs. Large sectional couch in the living room easily sleeps two if needed. Downstairs has a full bath with shower and a bedroom with queen bunks and another bedroom with a queen bed. There is a double futon downstairs as well as the pool table and dart board.
We have a beautiful 2 bedroom, 1 bath guest house on the property that is also available to rent (VRBO Listing #1218109, "Hawk's Nest"). This guest house sleeps 6 comfortably and when rented in conjunction with Hawk's View, allows parties of up to 20 (14 in Hawk's View and 6 in Hawk's Nest) to be together yet have space to spread out and have a second kitchen. The Nest guest house can also be rented separately from Hawk's View main house.
We encourage fun but being respectful to our neighbors is top priority. No loud parties allowed.
Parking is limited to 4 vehicles. Our home sits on a steep hill which makes for great views but the driveway is very steep. If it's at all icy we advice that you park on the street and walk up. This can be challenging for those without sure footing.
Cancellations: Bookings canceled at least 60 days before the start of the stay will receive a 100% refund. No refund if canceled within 60 days. (Security Deposit will be refunded).
You must be a minimum of 30 years of age to rent our home.

About Jill Hawkins
We fell in love with the Gorge in the 1990's. Windsurfing was the initial draw but the astounding beauty and access to world class recreation-mt and road biking, rafting, hiking, fishing, golfing, and more kept us coming back. The restaurants and shops are top notch and the wine tasting and access to local produce are stellar! We chose to build our home in Mosier because of it's unique Columbia River views and it's small town charm. It's so close to all that Hood River offers but you feel greater calm and serenity here. We built our home ourselves in 1999 and are happy you are considering it for your next vacation.
Jill Hawkins purchased this House in 1999
Why Jill Hawkins chose Mosier
Our home is well suited for families, couples, or groups of friends looking for a relaxing and fun get-away. The view is spectacular, looking straight down the stunning Columbia River Gorge. The home is perfect for entertaining with it's open concept on the main floor yet each bedroom is cozy and private.
What makes this House unique
You can bike from home to the Mosier Twin Tunnel Trail and other amazing road bike options. The strong consistent winds coupled with smaller crowds at the local windsurf/kite beach (Rock Creek), which you can see from the house, make this a perfect launch pad for the windsurfer/kiter.

Amazing view and space
Absolutely loved the entire house. Very short distance to downtown hood river. Amazing view from family room and hot tub on deck. Lots of sleeping arrangements available too. Great stay!
This is a great weekend getaway. The house had everything we needed, an amazing view, close to hikes and wineries, five minute walk from small grocery store. We loved it!
Incredible view and a great location!
The house was very comfortable and our foreign exchange student really enjoyed the hot tub. Some of the basics were missing, like garbage bags and pepper. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
Hi Mary. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about some of the basics missing. We typically leave plenty of garbage bags for our guest. Sorry for that inconvenience. Thanks for renting our home!
Great location & amenities! 👍
We really enjoyed our stay in Mosier! Quiet location with lots to do! Had lunch at MOCO and rented bikes in Hood River. The view from the house was fabulous! Great family getaway!
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay Marita! Thanks for renting out home.
Great group getaway
Great vacation house! Very comfortable for 5 couples, with ample space to be together in a big group or spread out in the basement, living room, hot tub, and backyard. Loved the view. Clear communication from booking through check-out. Would certainly stay again!
Thank you for this wonderful review Katie! I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay. Please come again!!
Clean and comfortable...just like home.
Great view, activities at the house to keep kids occupied if weather is bad. We had a group of 5 kids and 6 adults and we had plenty of room to roam in the house. Open floor design adds to the layout. Lots of bedrooms and bathrooms. Driveway is a little steep so we backed up for easier access. Had no problem parking a sedan and suv. Would stay again if in area.
Thanks for choosing our home for your get-away Michael. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will come back again!
The Columbia River Gorge attracts outdoor sports enthusiasts from around the world.
