Recline in the glow of the fire, choose the luxury leather reclining sofa in the living room or the canopy bed inthe Master. In this historic* country refuge, brand new to VRBO, feel your tension ease whether inside or if you're drawn outside, to soak in the hot tub, watch the stars against the alpine glow on Mt. Hood or Mt. Adams. Venture beyond the immediate 3/4 fenced acre, 20 minutes to Mt. hood Meadows, 12 to Hood River, windsurfing or ?, or if weather permits, snow-shoe/crosscountry out the door. Inside, enjoy the cozy feel of a true early 20th century craftsman farmhouse, catch a different grove or peak from each of the 4 bedrooms original windows, luxuriate on the heated terra cotta kitchen floor as you pull up a stool for coffee and a long gaze at Mt. Hood.
Spring brings pear/apple blossoms all around as you imagine yourself in a sea of popcorn from the coziness of the canopy bed, or overlooking the puffs against the lingering snows of Adama. Later in the season, pick cherries, raspberries, and other fruit right in your own garden.
Wild life may be as close as the walks 2 'blocks' away with deer and the rare sighting of bear, martens, cougar, and fox - or a duck or albino peacock may surprise you right in front of the house. They like the pond and the miniature koi too!
Currently, the sauna is being refurbished, but by spring, the lawns and gardens will draw you outside to barbecue, sit and enjoy mountain views and scents of flowers, or hot tub and sweat. Meanwhile, pick a BlueRay or Netflix or Amazon Instant Prime or music or head to Parkdale (5minutes) for music, beer, and barbecue, or down to Hood River for a variety of activities.
A special place, the century-old grove outside the French doors of the Master, and fire ring from long-ago stage trails draws one in a calm, reflective, nurturing embrace with nature.
