About the property

Plenty Of Room For Everyone And All The Amenities Of Home

Come and relax in a charming, nineteenth century home that has been updated with all of the modern comforts and amenities. Enjoy the view of Mt. Adam's and the Columbia River while you cook a delicious meal in the modern kitchen, listening to music on your iPod or iPhone. This home is full of comforts and details that you will appreciate during your stay, from the vegetable garden and flower boxes that decorate the front porch in summer, to the heated tile floors, claw foot tub and pristine hot tub in the private back yard year round.

This home has been recently remodeled with brand new hardwood floors throughout and has plenty of room for everyone. Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the house, the front porch or back garden and there is a plenty of room for outdoor dining, recreation (hot tub, volleyball net available) and even a tree house in the backyard.

The floor plan is modern and open with flexible sleeping arrangements: upstairs there are two private bedrooms with Queen beds and a bonus bunk room for the kids (or larger parties) with 2 bunk beds (one is a Queen, one Twin) and an additional trundle bed for extra room. Downstairs there is also a new sofa bed in the TV room and a futon couch in the office.

The working office on the main floor has a desk and office chair with plenty of room to get a little work done around the edges. There are various comfy places to sit and read a book, including rocking chairs on the front porch, a sunny balcony over the stairway or a wooden chaise lounge on the private back deck.

You can dine outdoors under a grapevine covered arbor, and still enjoy a majestic Mt. Adam's view or there is a traditional dining table with extra leaf and plenty of chairs in the front room.

It is a 2 minute walk to the amazing Hood River skateboard park or a 10 minute bike ride to the Waterfront Park along the Columbia River. A 10 minute stroll will get you to the main downtown shopping area of Hood River full of trendy restaurants and shops. Don't forget to stop by Mike's Ice Cream!

This cottage has it all: all the comforts of home plus all the extras you expect while on vacation (Wi-Fi, hot tub, outdoor dining) and a downtown Hood River location that can't be beat, on a quiet street yet in walking distance to all the best spots Hood River has to offer.

About Karen Bullard

We are an active, outdoor oriented family that fell in love with the Columbia Gorge area and all that it has to offer. In the summer you will find us windsurfing and biking, in the winter skiing, and in the Spring and Fall, hiking, backpacking and enjoying the great outdoors.

Karen Bullard purchased this house in 1998

Why Karen Bullard chose Mt. Hood, The Gorge

We spend most of the summer in Hood River so know what it is like to enjoy a comfortable home. Our house is stocked with the all the amenities you expect at a vacation home (hot tub, flat screen, cable) as well as many extras (extremely comfortable beds, every kitchen accessory imaginable, vegetable garden in summer...). We take pride in our home and are happy to share it with fellow travelers.

What makes this house unique

Sit on the front porch rocking chair with a favorite beverage and enjoy the views of Mt. Adam's and the Columbia River, soak in our pristine hot tub in the private backyard at the end of a hard day on the water or slopes, admire the charm and decor of our 19th century home with all the modern conveniences (brand new hardwood floors, wi-fi, heated floors in upstairs bathroom, flat screen TV in shade darkened movie room).

Great experience overall, location was great and ample space for our group of 6 adults and baby

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house for New Years weekend. All the rooms are upstairs, and the sound is well kept downstairs when the door is closed. The hot tub was lovely in the cold weather. Instructions for the property were easy to follow, and Karen was super accommodating and easy to communicate with. Hope to return again for the Spring/Summer months.

Large, welcoming and good location

  • 5 of 5

Karen's home is charming, and can accommodate a large party of guests. It's very close to downtown Hood River. The kitchen is particularly well kept and full of everything one needs to make a meal. Would definitely return. The only issue is parking is limited.

Family Friendly Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Good location with plenty of space and a family friendly atmosphere. The hot tub is a welcome retreat at the end of a long day. We appreciated the suggestions provided for food and hikes. The Tamanawas Falls hike was one of the highlights of our trip.

House is great - has lots of beds, two full bathrooms and a full kitchen. Central air (heat and cool) and hot tub are great as well. One of the rooms has a beautiful view on the gorge and river.
