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 store, pub, 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. There are two futons that fold out to double beds 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 futon downstairs as well as the pool table and dart board.

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.

We are nearing completion of a guest house on our property in front of our home. It does not obscure the views from the main house and you have full access to the driveway. Photos coming once it's complete. It will be available to rent either in conjunction with the main house or separately (it sleeps up to 6 and is super cozy and nice! Same spectacular views) sometime in 2017.

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 Mt. Hood, The Gorge

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.

Notes:

While less than 10 minutes from downtown Hood River, you feel away from it all at our home and get to enjoy views you can't get anywhere else in the Gorge. 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!

Fresh air, Gorgeous view and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We awoke every morning to gorgeous views of the Columbia River as two of the bedrooms have river views. And just a few steps to the main living area and the view is even more expansive. Step outside to the deck and whether you are just sitting or enjoying the hot tub, you don't have much choice but to be inspired to relax as you take in the view.

The home has plenty of space for a large group as the open floor plan on the upper level joins the kitchen, dining and living room. On the lower entrance level, the large game room has a pool table and other games so guests can choose where to enjoy themselves.

The kitchen provides nice service for 12 and I always appreciate when there are a few spices and other staples available.

Jill was very responsive both in the days before and during our stay. The driveway is steep, there is a flight of stairs to the main level and the ever present highway din may be considered drawbacks for some. But for us they weren't deterrents and we would love it if we had an opportunity to return.

Our third year at Hawk's View!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I have hosted our tribe of millennial children, nieces and nephews for the past three years at Hawk's View. We chose it initially because it seemed to have enough beds and it was equidistance from our homes in OR, WA and ID. We returned for the view, the hot tub, the pool table, and the hiking trail right out the back door. The beautiful drive in the Gorge from all three directions is also part of the joy. We bring wood and an ax so we can have fires (in the fireplace or out back in the fire pit depending on weather) and roast the requisite marshmallows...apparently this is not something children grow out of. We arrive Friday night and don't get back in our cars until we leave Sunday. We are a family of cooks, so the kitchen set-up works well for us (we learned many years ago to travel with our own knives, cast iron pans, and other kitchen accoutrement...). One of our kids brings his sourdough starter to bake our daily bread. I know! Jill is great to work with — we'll be back next year!

Gorgeous view of the Columbia!

  • 4 of 5

What an amazing view from the house looking out onto the river! Whether standing inside the house, on the deck, or in the hot tub the view was more amazing in person.

Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space on our annual girls weekend.

The driveway is not for the weak of heart...lol! It is steep but worth it.

Beautiful home thank you for allowing people the opportunity to get away in it!

We loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (3 families with kids from ages 1- to 11-years old) rented the house for a get together. We all had a great time. The house was magical for the kids: they loved the selection of bunk beds, pool table and swing with view. The location was ideal for hikes and trips to Hood River. The owner was attentive but not intrusive. We will definitely be back.

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.
