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.

Why Leigh Hancock chose Hood River
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.

Awesome, cozy house!
This cottage is old and full of charm! My husband and I stayed two nights. It was super easy to walk around Hood River--great location.
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Come again anytime!
Cozy, clean and nice cottage. Our stay was perfect at this little cottage. Had a wonderful time.
Perfect for us!
The cottage allowed us to start our search for a home in Hood River while being right in the center of things!! It even snowed!!! Bed was great and had yummy towels. Thanks Leigh and Bengt!!!
Cute and cozy
Perfect place for a weekend getaway for myself, my husband and dog! Thank you!
Will come again!
This is a lovely cottage which stands alone and is located close to everything in the amazing town of Hood River, yet quiet and peaceful. On a clear day you can see Mt Adams in the distance while in the kitchen or enjoying an expansive backyard. There is a W/D in the basement and parking on the property. Leigh is a wonderful host who answered any questions we had and even went out of their way looking for a key we lost while departing. There is not many cooking pans and utensils provided but most likely because of all the fabulous places to eat in and around Hood River. We will defiantly stay here again if we return to Hood River.
We're so glad you had a good time! And glad that you found your key. (:
We'd be happy to host you again. Happy New Year!
This a great house in a really lovely neighborhood. We used the house for an annual girlfriend getaway and while it says it sleeps 4, I think this house is better suited for a romantic couple than just friends. the other bedroom option is an enclosed sleep porch and it was a bit chilly this October, although it offers stunning views of Mt. Adams.
The Gorge is a great place to play, with outdoor activities including but not limited to skiing, wind surfing, kite boarding, mountain biking and hiking. There's also a lively arts scene, with galleries, community theater and a sinfonietta. The Gorge is blessed with great restaurants, wineries and brew pubs--and so much more! If we haven't mentioned it here, just ask.
