Overview

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.

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.

Cozy!

  • 4 of 5

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.

Cute house with a wonderful view and centrally located.

  • 3 of 5

We found the house to be fairly comfortable and it suited our needs for the short stay in Hood River. However, there are a few things that I'd say need some attention. We choose vacation rentals to save money on dining out, however the cookware is old. The teflon is peeling off some of the pans and others are not even flat. The house could be cleaner, stains on the carpet and couch. The hedges could be trimmed up and the outside grill was filthy. Socks and paper towels stuck in holes in the sunroom and around the windows were not appealing at all. Overall a cozy place that needs some attention to detail.

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in lovely Hood River. Mountain View Cottage is very conveniently located and true to its name has a nice view across the Coumbia (or would have but for the smoke from recent fires!). The cottage is compact but comfy and had everything we needed.

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!
