About the property

One bedroom cottage with sunny yard and great view. Close to park, pool, tennis!

The Mountain View Cottage is a cozy, light-filled cottage with a large, airy sun porch--perfect for enjoying the Mt Adams view with your morning coffee. Located in the heights of Hood River, the cottage sleeps four, with one bedroom (queen-sized bed) and a full-sized futon bed in the sun room. The cottage comes with a completely equipped kitchen, as well as a gas grill, picnic table and large, sunny yard with plenty of room for adults, children and pets to play. It has a TV (but no cable service) and a DVD player, with a few DVDs.

We have a strict non-smoking policy. We do not allow any smoking within the house, including the sun porch or the outdoor porches. Any violation of this rule will result in forfeiture of the entire security deposit.

A full basement offers storage for your toys and outdoors gear.

The cottage is within easy walking distance of the community pool, tennis courts, Jackson Park, a fabulous bakery and several great restaurants. There is a small organic market just two blocks away, and several grocery stores within a short drive.

World-class wind sports, swimming, white water boating and mountain biking can all be accessed within ten minutes. Downtown Hood River with its art galleries, movie theaters and fine restaurants is a long walk or short drive away. In the winter, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and sledding are 45+ minutes away at Mt. Hood Meadows, and 1+ hours away at Mt. Adams.

Taylor Avenue is a quiet street that borders Hood River's Jackson Park, which has tree-shaded picnic tables, a playground for children and adjacent tennis courts and pool.

Definitely plan to have breakfast at the nearby Pine Street bakery, then head on down the street for delicious organic food and deli items from the Farm Cafe. La Taqueria (3 blocks away on 13th Street) offers some of the best Mexican food and margaritas in town!

The cottage has a driveway that can easily accommodate two cars. On-street parking is also provided.

The cottage is within easy walking or biking distance of almost anything you'd need. In a pinch, Columbia Area Transit can provide dial-a-ride, door-to-door service through the Gorge.

About Leigh Hancock

Leigh and Bengt have lived, worked and played in the Columbia Gorge since the early 1990s. They were joined in 2001 by their son Finn and in 2007 by their border collie Pippin. Bengt is a hydrologist, Leigh is a writer and college instructor, and Finn specializes in babysitting younger boys. They all four enjoy camping, hiking, mountain biking and sports.

Leigh Hancock purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Leigh Hancock chose Mt. Hood, The Gorge

The Mountain View Cottage is a sweet, light-filled cottage with a great yard and beautiful views of Mt. Adams. In the right season, feel free to pick cherries, peaches or pears on the property; in all seasons, the best bakery in town is just two blocks away. We love our cottage and hope you will too.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with the cottage the first time we saw it because of its 1920s charm. We love how every room is filled with light and all the little details that make it cozy and welcoming. The Mt. Adams view out the back windows is spectacular and the deep back yard lends itself to lazy afternoons and bar-b-ques.

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is why I love staying at vacation rentals! A really FUN town to visit, a unique house to cook and spend time with family (or friends) and interesting local hosts. This is a really cute 1920s bungalow with sleeping porch; super efficient kitchen ...with plenty of outdoor space with a smashing view of Mt Adams. It was a great birthday weekend ... even for December! My partner, my son and my dog all had a good time. We did so much in 3 short days: we hiked three waterfalls, scrambled around the basalt faces at Horsetooth Butte (bummer, the petroglyphs area was closed), taste tested at three breweries and one distillery, and visited the WAAAM museum (so cool if you are a car or plane buff)....and there is still plenty of things left to do in Hood River. We'll be back! Thanks Leigh & Begnt for making this all possible, you guys were wonderful.

Sweet little cottage

  • 5 of 5

The mountain view cottage is adorable and very well located for exploring and relaxing in Hood River. It is light and bright, the bed is comfy, and it stays nice and warm. It is small (but that is part of its charm) and very well outfitted and we loved staying there. Leigh was a very friendly and responsive host. Thank you!

Hood River Charmer

  • 4 of 5

Loved our little house in Hood River. It had so much charm. It was the perfect size. It had a great view of Mt Adams and was walking distance to an amazing bakery and restaurant (Pine Street Bakery & Pine Street Restaurant). Loved the town and loved our little house. Would highly recommend this place for a couple or small family.
