5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14 Post And Beam Home With A Wall Of Windows

Large comfortable home on 3 levels with lots of room for a crowd. The main floor includes a great room with a fully stocked kitchen, a dining area that seats up to 14, a living area with a stone fireplace accenting the lovely open beams and cathedral ceiling. The main level has two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with a twin. There's a full bath on the main floor with a walk in shower.

There's a large, wraparound deck with a gas grill and comfortable outdoor furniture. A gas fire pit is great for evening gatherings and the lower level patio has a double hammock, great for napping.

Upstairs there's a huge, skylit loft full of toys and games with a game table. There's also a twin trundle bed in the loft, tucked under one of the skylights. The master bedroom is upstairs and includes a full bath ensuite with a whirlpool tub and separate shower. The master has a balcony overlooking the river perfect for enjoying your morning coffee.

The house sits on 3 acres of riverfront property. There are paths to the river and a grassy play area.

This home has been recently furnished with new high-quality mattresses, luxury bedding and spa quality towels. The kitchen has a 6 burner Dacor duel fuel range with gas cooktop and electric oven. The house has an on demand hot water heater - no waiting for the hot water tank to reheat!

There's so much to do in the area. The home sits right on the White Samon River, a really fun river to white water raft or kayak! There are several outfitters close by. We're less than 15 minutes from the Columbia River, a world class destination for wind surfers and kite boarders. There are lots of trails for hiking and mountain biking, plus zip lining, fishing, and horseback riding; you can walk to the Husum Hills golf course. Winery tours are another fun activity with a whole bunch of great wineries in close proximity.

About Lisa Huston

I live in Portland and love the Columbia River Gorge.

Lisa Huston purchased this house in 2003

Why Lisa Huston chose Columbia River Gorge

The close proximity to Portland combined with drier, sunnier climate and fantastic options for stuff to do.

What makes this house unique

The White Salmon River is one of the most beautiful rivers on earth - it is, quite simply, gorgeous! There are so many options for things to do, and great spots to sit and read a book or simply stare at the river and daydream.

Beautiful property! Inside and out...

  • 5 of 5

Husum hideaway was the perfect location and environment for my family /friend gathering! Nice mix of large and cozy. More than enough to do to keep you entertained and relaxed for multiple days. Wish we could have enjoyed it for longer.

It was also easy to find multiple beautiful country rides on our motorcycles. Perfect weekend!

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property and the owner is very nice and responsive. We had our Bachelorette/Bachelor weeekend get away here and it was perfect for a group of 14!

The instant hot water is very much appreciated! All the bedrooms looked wonderful!

Had a great propane fire pit to relax by in the evening.

Bring bug spray though!! Those Mosquitoes will get ya!

We brought our three dogs and they loved exploring the property and if we needed to head out here is a wonderful gated area for them to roam around in.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house to hold a family reunion, had a great lived in feeling just like home! Lots of extra details to meet all needs. We were happy to not have to schlep baby equipment (there is a highchair, pack 'n play, and baby gate for the stairs). For the kids, lots of games and a ping pong table, and the adults enjoyed the quite spots to enjoy books and puzzles. And not many rentals are so welcoming to the pooches! They had a fully fenced area to run and we were so appreciative that they could join us. We all loved gathering by the gas fire pit in the evening - lots of patio chairs surrounding it, (also available on decks). VERY comfy beds and plenty of linens (even fancy spa robes in the master bedroom), well stocked kitchen and a gas grill on the deck. The owner was very easy to communicate with and responded quickly to all our questions. Local contact person is available for assist if needed but everything went perfectly. Thank you for sharing your home!

Too Much Fun @ Husum HIdeaway

  • 5 of 5

This is one outstanding property and the very best we have rented in the 15 years the five of us have been getting together. It is completely secluded and we found it in perfect condition. Everything promised by the owners was provided. We can't think of one thing missing...really. Also, Lisa allowed us an early arrival which really helped us. Everything you need is only a few miles away in Hood River and the Hideaway is only 1 1/2 hours from the Portland Airport. The drive along the Columbia River Gorge is amazing. If you are looking for a quiet, really classy place to vacation look no further. We will most definitely return!

Perfect family reunion home base

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Husum Hideaway bringing our families together for a week of adventure and relaxation. I love how easy it was to get to excursions from the house - a day of white water rafting on the White Salmon, a day of paddle boarding on the Columbia, a trip to Goose Lake to fish, a trip out to Lost Lake, a tour of the fruit loop, and a favorite among the younger set: a trip to the Alpaca Farm in Trout Lake. There was no shortage of things to keep everyone entertained. But I also loved how remote it felt at the house. Set way back, down a long private drive. The sound of the river rushing next to the house. The gorgeous garden full of buzzing bees and gorgeous butterflies. The evenings around the fire pit. The mornings on the deck drinking coffee and listening to the river. The house is beautifully decorated and had literally everything we needed - so well stocked for cooking. Everything about the house exceeded expectations - we would come back in a heartbeat.
