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.
