About Robert Teskey
A family of four now calls Hood River home, we are often found exploring SE Asia where we lived for four years, skiing on the mountain, hiking and biking the local trails with our dogs, or enjoying all that the Gorge has to offer. Robert does consulting to the sporting goods business mostly in Asia; Pamela is a teacher, artist, and activist; Sofie and Fiona are busy with their studies and enjoying dance, theatre, track, biking, skiing, cooking and golf besides. As Native Oregonians, Robert and Pamela believe that the Gorge is special in many way and we work to capture that essence at Dragonfly. We let our European heritage (German and Norwegian respectively) as well as our Asian experience influence our lives and enjoy the best that all cultures have to offer. Our Hood River place is home to two dogs and four cats with the canines enjoying frequent times at our Mosier cabin.
Robert Teskey purchased this Cabin in 2009
Why Robert Teskey chose Mosier
We bought this place during a 5 year expat stint in southern China as a place to get grounded during our annual summer homelike stays. It was "on our list" when we first moved back to Oregon in 2002 but felt too remote at the time for small children. Fast forward and we find ourselves often at "Dragonfly" as Robert uses it as an office space, Pamela for creating art and teaching classes, and the kids for various activities. Our family travels often and have seen much of the world, especially SE Asia. We enjoy the tranquility that Dragonfly has to offer our guests as comfortable place to getaway from it all, yet enjoy being close to Gorge's many luscious offerings.
What makes this Cabin unique
Dragonfly is the perfect place to getaway from city and stresses of life in general. Set on a seasonal creek and nestled in the woods, our place is a pleasant place to relax, do yoga, bbq, sip wine and dine with views of the pond and waterfall, or write the great American novel.

Peaceful and Secluded cabin was wonderful
We enjoyed our stay. The cabin was close to Hood River where we participated in the Tree Lighting and the Train to Christmas Town. We even got some snow! We loved the seclusion of the cabin.
Enjoyed a really great Thanksgiving week at the Dragonfly Cabin. This is a true getaway in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. Close to wineries, outdoor sports, etc. But we mostly enjoyed simple the relaxation this cabin provides. Everything is here you'll need. Comfortable beds, an equipped kitchen, claw foot tub for a good soak with a view of outdoors...and a lovely sunroom that literally makes you feel you are sitting in the middle of the forest. Pictures and description of the cabin are very representative of what you get. It is rustic, so perhaps not for everyone, but we certainly loved it!
So glad that you enjoyed your time at Dragonfly Retreat. It truly is a place to get centered and escape the distractions of daily life. We hope you come back sometime. Thanks for your thoughtful attention and caring for our cabin. We appreciate it!!
It was our second stay, we had a very good time. It was a bit cold inside when we arrived, but it warmed up pretty easily. There was everything we needed, the kids enjoyed the large property and the games. It feels far away from everything, yet it is only 5 minutes from Mosier and 15 minutes from Hood River, so it is the perfect location.
Great stay in a peaceful setting
We had a wonderful time. Our second visit and just as great as the first!
The Perfect Cabin for a Perfect Hood River Weekend
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay @ the Dragonfly Creek Cabin. The property is so serene yet also convenient to all of the attractions of Hood River and Mt. Hood. I look forward to staying here for my next visit to Hood River.
Quiet, secluded, rustic
Considering the very reasonable price, this place was great. The owner is very responsive and the property is delightful. The kids loved the little pond, and mornings in the sun room were nice. Downsides include remoteness (1+ miles of dirt road away from Mosier), hot water that fluctuates heavily, minimal wifi or cell service, and a bed setup that doesn’t allow for mom and dad to sleep away from kids. But overall, we were quite happy with the place.
Nestled in the woods outside of Mosier (pop. 430), Dragonfly Retreat is the perfect spot for peaceful getaways yet still with close access to Hood River and all the activities of the scenic Columbia Gorge. World-class windsurfing and kiteboarding is only 2 miles away at Mosier Beach. The famous Twin Tunnels trail (paved) is 1.5 miles away with traffic free access to hiking, biking, skating, and other activities. The trail continues east of the trailhead as Highway 30, popular for cycling and sightseeing as it winds through the hills toward The Dalles. Hood River, 15 minutes away, has a variety of restaurants, wineries, brewpubs, as well as activities such as golf, tennis, swimming (pool), and shopping.
