Entendez le son du fleuve: Hear the sound of the river. You'll feel to the manor born when you stay at this spacious estate that combines the atmosphere of a chateau in Provence with the stunning beauty and vibrance of Oregon's Hood River Valley. Nestled in rolling hills dotted like a Seurat painting with myriad pear trees, you'll not only be in a spot renowned for its luscious Anjou pears, you'll also be close to the magnificent Hood River with its world-class windsurfing, abundant wineries, and orchards bursting with plump fruit!
From the moment you enter the huge open living area with its high ceilings, panoramic views, and grand spiral staircase you realize this is an enormous space (about 5800 sq.ft.) perfect for festivities, yet warm and comfortable - and you would be right. The home is the newly built favorite getaway of the Webster family and their eight children, and was designed to entertain large parties. You and 19 other people can make this your home away from home and enjoy the spectacular views of the surrounding orchards, fir trees, and Mounts Hood and Adams in the distance.
Whether you're passing the hors d'oeuvres at a party, or a bowl of popcorn while you and the family watch a movie, this home offers a seamless space for interacting no matter what the occasion. And when the others have gone to bed, enjoy a solitary moment. Stay up by the fire and work on the laptop with the free WiFi, read a book, or watch a late movie on the cable TV.
This chateau's large and well-equipped kitchen will be up to any culinary challenge, from a glitzy feast to eggs and toast in the morning. With tons of cabinets and counter space, preparing those meals will be a breeze without bumping into each other. Straw bosses can supervise and chat as they sip a drink at the island right in the kitchen. When the meal's done, gather 'round the dining table with room for Eight (plus seven more at the island) and feast not only on the meal, but a wonderful view of the countryside as well.
A big place needs a plan, and this one has it: all the bedrooms are color-coded so everyone knows where they belong at bedtime. The master bedroom is on the main floor, and the small room left of the foyer is set up as an office. And here's your color-coded room assignments: the green and blue room has two twin beds, the red and blue a queen, the purple room has a queen bed and 2 cribs, and the pink room a queen as well. In the basement, the yellow room has two twin beds, and finally, there's a queen bed and futon in the main space. Lots of places for tired vacationers!
River Song is just 10 minutes from downtown Hood River and all the great places to eat and shop there. Right on the Columbia River, Hood River is a mecca for anyone looking to immerse themselves in the stunning beauty and wealth of activities in and around the Columbia River Gorge. Along with the three-dozen wineries in the area, there are many orchards where you can pick your own fruit! Come in April to the Hood River Blossom Festival and take the railroad tour of the orchards called "The Fruit Loop." And of course there are plenty of places to golf, and fish and raft and...you get the picture! Winter is great in Hood River too. Just head south for 30 minutes and you're at Mount Hood Meadows. Keep going, and there are more places to ski down the road.

This venue is designed for a large family or a good size group or friends. The house has plenty of places to sleep and plenty of bathrooms. The view of Mt Adams out the back window adds to the location of the vacation house. Hot tub and other amenities were all very well maintained.
Space Space Space!
We rented this property for a company staff retreat and it was a complete success. The house is large enough for multiple people to enjoy the space and all find a place to comfortably sleep. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook some great meals. Overall, the location and view are by far the best. Because it's on a pear orchard, the house is extremely private and separated from the neighbors. The views out of every window are incredible! It was cloudy during our stay so we couldn't see the mountains but that didn't hide the lovely fall colors on all of the surrounding trees. With the hot tub and massive fire place in the living room, this was the perfect place to work and relax. I hope I have the opportunity to stay here again in the near future!
If we could have extended our stay at the River-Song house we would have! BEAUTIFUL views, amazing property and very spacious for our 18 guests who traveled to be a part of our wedding. Not only was the bedroom configuration perfect, but very spacious for everyone to spread out and enjoy the common areas. This was the perfect location for a getaway but still close to Hood River amenities. I would hands down rent this property again. Thank you for a wonderful experience VRBO!
This house is amazing. All of the photos are very accurate.
Being a group of chefs, we spent most time in the kitchen. It was VERY well stocked. It had two dish washers, two ovens (plus a bonus oven downstairs), and plenty of plates, cups, silverware, bowls, baking dishes... etc. There are measuring cups and spoons too... really anything you need.
Contrary to some reviews, we all found the beds and bedding very comfy. There are plenty of extra blankets, pillows, etc...
The hot tub is newer looking with plenty of space for multiple people.
And the house is immaculate!
I wish that the rental company would have told us about the automatic dog door in the laundry room, because we would have loved to use it! I didn't see it until my last day, doing laundry, but still quite a bonus for the next renters!
Ping pong and fuse ball in the basement were great! And nice to have the games away from most of the bedrooms.
You won't be let down with this house if you have a large party (or even if you don't!).
We can't wait to come back and rent it again.
Great house for a big group. I would definitely recommend it.
Our group of 18 thoroughly enjoyed this home. It's very comfortable and there's a lot of room to spread out. The views and setting are spectacular. The hot tub and foosball table were really fun! The downstairs is a bit "unfinished" but that did not detract from our overall stay. The kitchen could be better stocked if you are a family who will be doing a lot of cooking (like we did.) Bring your own large salad bowl, good knives, and salt & pepper. Aside from this, we would definitely stay here again.
