About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Walk across the street and down 'The Stairs' and you are in downtown Hood River! 'The Stairs' go from downtown Hood River up to the 'The Heights' of Hood River. Locals use 'The Stairs' to work out or get from point A to B without needing to drive. There are also five parks within 5 minutes of the house.

We live in Hood River and chose this home because of its views and that it truly is located downtown. Take a stroll in the morning for coffee at Doppio or have the biggest homemade cinnamon roll or breakfast sandwich at Bette's Restaurant. A taxi is not needed at the end of the night after enjoying your weekend away! Walking distance to so many of our favorite restaurants. Also walking distance to brew pubs such as Full Sail and Double Mountain or The Pines, Cerulean and Springhouse Wineries. Skylight theatre is also steps away and you can enjoy pizza, salads, beer or wine while you watch your movie!

A few minutes from boating, stand-up paddle boarding, kite boarding, wind surfing, and fishing on the Columbia River. 35 miles to Mt Hood Meadows ski resort, 25 miles to family-friendly Cooper Spur Ski Resort, 50 miles to year-round snow at Timberline Lodge and 21 miles to snow parks for tubing.

About Debbi

Our family chose to live in Hood River because of its beauty and love for the outdoors.

Debbi purchased this house in 2013

Why Debbi chose Mt. Hood, The Gorge

We chose this property because of its downtown location and views of the Columbia River and Hood River bridge.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay between Christmas and New Years. The house was very clean, it has everything you need and the fireplace makes it really cozy on a cold winter's evening returning from a day on the slopes at Mt. Hood.

Clean. Cozy. Easy walk to town, and great view of the Columbia.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed celebrating New Years with our good friends. Spent time exploring Hood River and its many wine tasting venues and craft beer breweries. Betty's cafe cinnamon rolls a must. We'll be back.

A lovely two bedroom home with a fantastic view of the Columbia River and quaint town of Hood River.

  • 5 of 5

We spent our four days over the Christmas holiday in this delightful home. When we arrived the heat had been turned on, a pair of sparkling raindeer sat on the dining room table and a small Christmas tree sat in the kitchen window. The next morning we sipped our morning coffee and watched the snow fall outside. Being away from home at Christmas is sometimes hard, but our home away from home was warm and comfortable. Within walking distance to th sweet town of Hood River, the location is ideal. There was plenty of space for visiting with my son and daughter in law and the well-stocked kitchen was certainly a bonus. I definitely would reccomend staying here any time of the year.

This house was the perfect place to stay while visiting Hood River. The location was perfect - we had great views of the river and we could easily walk downtown. The house itself was comfortable, and the owner was easy to work with and provided great service. I can't wait to go back!

Relaxing getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this property. Just like the first time, we enjoyed our morning coffee and evening wine on the front deck overlooking downtown and the river. The interior accommodations were also comfortable and clean. Conveniently located, we were also able to walk to restaurants, shops and seasonal attractions.

Great location for Hood River weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental for our trip. As advertised, the house is within short walking distance to all that downtown Hood River has to offer, which was perfect after days playing on the water or golf course. The house was clean, and well-maintained. The deck outside of the house was a bonus. We enjoyed waking up and taking in the views of the Columbia. Thanks!
