Overview

About the property

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 rousting 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 about 7 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.

It's a quick and easy drive to downtown Hood River for shopping and restaurants, while still feeling away from it all. Walk or bike to downtown Mosier restaurants, ice cream, playground and more. Easy access to Mosier Tunnel Trail and Route 30 for biking, and you can hike to a beautiful waterfall and a newly expanded wildflower hike right out the door.

This house is very kid and family friendly, and perfect for a large group.

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. 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 and cozy 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.

This home is the perfect launch pad for recreation, wine tasting, or site-seeing. Or, just relax at home in the hammock on a nice day or in front of the fire on a chilly day.

Amazing House - Amazing Views - Amazing Value

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here to celebrate my brother in law's and my, birthday. The house is amazing with plenty of room for entertaining as well as sleeping. The view is absolutely breathtaking and I did not get tired of using the provided binoculars to glass the river and the hills. The kitchen is well stocked and their were spices and condiments in the fridge. We had to reach out to the owner to ask a question about the hot tub and she was super responsive and friendly. Additionally this house is very kid friendly! There is a changing table and high chair, as well as bunks and TONS of toys and games (for all ages).

This house is going to the top of our favorites for the gorge. I look forward to the next trip we take here!

Great house for families!

  • 4 of 5

We have an annual trip we do with a group of friends, this house was definitely the best house yet! Very kid friendly- sippy cups, changing table, bunk beds, toys- designed for families. Also very accessible to downtown Mosier, walked to the Christmas Bazar and also to dinner at MoCo. Loved our stay!

Spacious and well-equipped house for family get-away

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely, large and comfortable house for a family. Driveway, however is quite steep and difficult for cars to turn around. Street parking preferable. The town does not offer much but the proximity to Hood River is good. The house is very well equipped for any length of stay. Beds, baths are comfortable. Hot tub is excellent. The housekeeping charges are steep if only staying for a week-end. We feel there should be a differential for different lengths of stay. All in all, we enjoyed the house, the stay and will recommend to others.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay Raesa. The driveway is indeed very steep! Fortunately, the trade-off is the amazing views at the top. We do recommend not turning around at the top but backing down instead as we do have the tall posts in the sides of the driveway to help guide you. Although I appreciate your suggestion of a lower cleaning fee for a weekend renter as opposed to a longer stay, our caretakers find the laundry and cleaning takes the same amount of time regardless of the length of stay. Thanks for choosing our home for your family get-away!

Gorgeous Gorge

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our dear friends 40th Birthday and had a wonderful time! The house was comfortable and met our needs. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and close proximity to the many trails the gorge has to offer. The owners were incredibly responsive and available if we had any questions or needs.

By far the best rental experience I have had and will be sure to visit again!

We highly recommend this home for relaxation or adventure!

Perfect place for a girls weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great spacious house with a spectacular view. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. This was our second year in a row to stay in the Hawkins House. Lots of hiking and running trails nearby, and the hot tub on the deck at sunset is a wonderful place to be. We will reserve this house again next year.

Gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spot! This is such a great location and place for a large family to spread out...and so close to Hood River! Fires were really bad so we didn't know what we were missing until Sunday morning! We didn't want to leave once we saw the view!

The Columbia River Gorge attracts outdoor sports enthusiasts from around the world. From water sports such as kiting, windsurfing and stand up paddling to world class biking, hiking, backpacking, fishing, skiing and snowboarding, we are truly a recreation mecca. If you’re looking for a quiet, small town; exciting water, land, and snow sports; a rural experience; or a foodie heaven—or maybe all of the above—you’ve come to the right place. Clean air, farm-fresh foods, wonderful wineries and craft breweries, this is one of the few places that offers the complete experience of growing, producing and then enjoying the local fruit, wine and beer. The Gorge area is famous for it's great outdoor recreation, wonderful shopping, and four incredible seasons—with spring blossoms, warm and windy summers, lush fall colors, and snowy winters. It’s the best of everything all in one place.
