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. We've just built a beautiful Ipe (Brazilian hardwood) deck which makes the outdoor living space extend even further.

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).

Quaint and charming

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The house is adorable and well-situated to downtown. My kids loved the play room and the bunk room and we had everything we needed readily available. Our hosts were very communicative and helpful via e-mail. We would definitely hope to stay here again on our next Hood River getaway.

Owner's Response: So glad everything went so well, particularly as you were dealing with re-routed traffic, smoke, chaos due to the Eagle Creek Fire. I hope the wedding went off without a hitch and that you come back again soon. Kind regards, Karen

Great view, easy location and wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

The property owner Karen was a joy to work with and super accommodating. She responded to questions quickly in advance of our stay and made sure all our needs were met when we arrived. The house is spacious, plenty of room to spread out for sleeping, and surprisingly quiet considering the amount of people the home accommodates - We had 8 women for a bachelorette party and all were very pleased. The bathrooms are spacious and the upstairs remodeled bathroom is very nice and features a mountain view. The stay was everything we hoped for and then some.

We golfed during the day on Saturday, there's also close access to downtown hood river, hikes in the gorge, excellent restaurants and breweries and much more.

Great Location and Great View!

  • 5 of 5

Had some folks out to Hood River to celebrate my birthday. The house is cute, has more than enough space, quite a nice view (even on rainy days!), and the location couldn't be more excellent. Walkable to downtown and breweries. Quiet street. We all had a great time, and weren't wanting for anything!
