About the property

- Minimum Stay2 - 3 nights
If there are not three nights available between bookings in our calendar you are welcome to request to book for fewer nights.
We chose to share our guest house primarily because the idea of sharing our stunning view appeals to us very much. We are so fortunate to have a view so special that we wanted to build a guest house for our friends and you!
We designed our 600 square foot modern guest house with the intent of creating a very private honeymoon suite.
It sits on concrete sonotubes about 18 feet up off the ground. The goal was to create a treehouse affect that evokes a visceral response as you hover above the trees looking out at the stunning views.
It has expansive views of Hood River, Mt Hood, and our favorite view, looking directly down the gorge.
Our guest house is accessed by a 30 foot long steel bridge.
Please see letters from our guest book below in the, "Why this property".
Our guest house is very private, but is located near our house, so there are some rules that it is very important that are followed.
Guests may only have one vehicle. Guests must park their vehicle on the left side of main house (east side). Maximum of two people at guest house unless owner makes an exception.
If you desire incredible views, modern architecture, and a very quiet location, I think you will really enjoy the experience.
You are welcome to ask about staying for less than our 3 day minimum. We are more receptive to this request for last minute bookings.
We hope you enjoy your stay!

About Tao Berman
I am a former professional athlete. I have traveled the world filming and competing. I have been very fortunate to experience many exotic and spectacular countries. I chose to transition from my nomadic and peripatetic lifestyle to settle down in White Salmon with Jamie and our two children.
Why Tao Berman chose White Salmon
It would be better to let our guests say this. Below are letters to us from our guest book. " We absolutely loved staying at your guest house for our first anniversary! It was the perfect getaway and you just can't beat the incredible view. Thank you for your hospitality." "Thank you for this special memory we may never forget. We woke up this morning to a beautiful view. More over, a coyote surfaced from the woods, as did a bobcat (this is the first I've ever seen). And then a herd of deer. I've never had an experience anything like this! Thank you for sharing this amazing place with us". "Still not sure how we got to be the lucky ones to enjoy the spot for Christmas! We love Hood River and visit often. This special place is everything we love and Tao and Jamie's hospitality is unparalleled. Can't decide if we want to tell everyone about it or keep it as our own secret. Can't wait to come back"! "Happy New Year's Tao and Jamie! Thank you so much for letting us ring in the New Year in your fabulous guest house! We hope to be back soon"! "With both of us in the design and build industry, we only look for places that strike our own design fancy. And your home was so very magnificent! Thank you for creating a space that will never be forgotten. Hope to be back this summer"! "This was the most magical, perfect getaway for us after getting married! It was perfect and we loved getting out and adventuring." "What a delight it was to stay in your guesthouse! The view was breathtaking and the peace was much needed as we prepare for a new baby"! "Thank you for sharing this wonderful view. What a joy. We loved our visit". "Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. It will always be a special place to us now". "Wow. There are no words to describe the beauty of this house on the hill".

This was the perfect setting to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. We are thankful that Tao and Jaime have decided to share their amazing view and we hope to enjoy it again soon.
This small house has a BIG view. Could have sat all day looking out the two walls of windows. The bed was comfy, nice kitchen, and clean throughout. The chairs to sit and look at the view aren’t very comfortable.
Our weekend in the sky was more than we ever could have imagined! The home was
Modern and comfortable and impeccably
Clean and the best vacation rental we have EVER had the privilege of staying in. Thanks so much to Tao and family for being such gracious hosts - we cannot wait to return !
A Must Stay
This place is MAGICAL. Definitely worth the price, it is just amazing. You are alone, with stunning views and everything you need. Could not have thought of a better place for us to go for our anniversary.
Really magnificent place, with unbelievable views. We've been staying in VRBO rentals for years and this definitely won the prize for best view! In addition, the space is modern and spotless. Tao was a gracious host. We loved the Columbia River Gorge and the towns of White Salmon & Hood River.
Always beautiful at Tao's
A spotless clean eyrie above the Columbia, beautiful views down the Gorge to the West and to Mt Hood to the South. . . the change of light and cloud is a wonder in at dawn and sunset. . . a magnificent spot, and always easy and a pleasure.
Couldn't be better . . . a perfect spot.
