We (Meagan and Eric) are newlyweds with two kids, ages 4 and 12. We live in Portland and Bend (long story). Meagan is a Family Law Attorney and Eric is a Finance guy. Though our lives are very busy we are actively involved with our Hood River Cottage.

In addition to running 13.1s we ski, snowboard, Mtn. bike and sail so the Portland, Bend and Hood River triangle works for our busy lives.

Eric purchased this house in 2001

Growing up in California and attending College in San Diego, I have always been drawn to the California beach town lifestyle. Quite simply put, north of Santa Cruz, Hood River is perhaps the only true representation of that lifestyle. When you throw in Mt. Hood and the added year-round activities there was no other choice for location. I looked at properties for two years, with the thought of renovating and eventually (vacation) renting. When my Realtor saw the property, the views and its close proximity to downtown, she contacted me immediately and we made the first full offer, securing the property its first day of listing.

We believe that you will find our Cottage to be the perfect fit for your romantic get-away or small group of friends and/or family due to its proximity to Downtown (literally steps) and the laid-back, open layout of the house. Large slab granite counter-tops in the kitchen and bar. Flat-screen TV and Wi-Fi for the times you want to lounge around. Large hot-tub on one of the back decks for soothing relaxation after an active day. Oh, did I mention the beautiful Columbia River views?! Well, they're pretty awesome!

We do allow pets (dogs) with an additional nightly fee and deposit. I'm pretty technical with the description and would not call the property 'pet friendly' due to the limited outdoor space and bluff-side location (read steep). However the house is comfortable for pets (dogs) that are acclimated to hanging out around the house (please make sure to walk your dogs to allow for a potty break away from the property).

SPRINGTIME IN HOOD RIVER

  • 5 out of 5
Lovely time to visit HR; no crowds. Cottage felt like home first day. Wonderfully outfitted, and surprise, I didn't have to rush out to buy essentials such as paper towels and dish soap. It was all furnished. View of the Columbia River out back window although somewhat obscured by new leaves on trees. But owner was more than helpful; drove down on Sunday from Portland when he realized I needed A/C so early in season and was able to activate system. Very quaint cottage that felt like places I had seen in Cape Cod, MA. Basics such as salt/pepper in cabinets, and a nice modern frig, and comfortable beds. Great location just above town...only a 5-minute walk to main shopping street and very hip restaurants. I was there a month, and never got bored. P.S. A great hiking trail into semi-wilderness was only minutes away, and being there in spring gave me splendid visuals of tree blossoms everywhere!

GREAT TIME

  • 4 out of 5
Sweet place, great location, Many extras. Owner available by phone to help us set up with the TV/music speakers. Peaceful location, Exceptional food @ Celilo. Walking around locally can be a physical challenge or easy stroll depending on where you go. Local bee honey , fresh soup daily, and health food at Mother's. Wonderful time!

NICE GET AWAY FOR THE GIRLS.

Met up with my two best friends. Great meeting place for the three of us coming from three different directions. Nice view. Comfortable beds. OK parking. Nice hot tub. Eric was available to help us figure out how to use the DVR.

GREAT LOCATION, GREAT VIEW

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this house over valentines day weekend with another couple. Extremely responsive and nice owners. House is clearly well taken care of and clean. Loved the back deck view, hot tub, and was pleasantly surprised when the grill fired up on the first try.

It's very close to all the fun stuff in town, but still feels secluded.

GREAT LOCATION!

Perfect location/base camp for bikers, hikers, skiiers/snowboarders or exploring Hood River and the Gorge. Owner gave timely and detailed information. Cottage was exactly as advertised, clean and well stocked with essentials. Hub Tub is huge with a great view.

OKAY

  • 3 out of 5
The cottage was quaint and eclectic but the hot tub did not work properly. The shower was very small and the beds were not very comfortable. Also, parking is an issue if you have any vehicle of size and it won't fit more than one.

Owner's Response: Hi Ryan,
Wow, we're sorry the Cottage was not a good fit for you.
The off-street parking, corner shower and queen beds are the same (with the exception of a new mattress (12/2012)in the river room) that we have had in place since we began renting and yours is the first negative feedback.
As for the Hot Tub, I wish you would have communicated during your stay that you were having difficulties.
I stopped by the Cottage after your departure and notice that the spa had cooled down to 89 degrees and had a warning light on. I contacted the spa guy and he came out the next day and cleared leaf debris from the filter. He suggested that the cover had been left off for a extended period of time in the previous few days, which allowed leaves to clog the filter. He cleared the debris and had it back operating within minutes (back up to temp. in less than two hours). Had you contacted us during your stay we might have been able to rectify the problem so that you could enjoy the hot tub. Please feel free to contact us via e-mail so that we can discuss possible remediation for your dissatisfaction.
Cheers,
Eric and Meagan

Location

Have to recommend 6th Street Bistro - Sit upstairs if not on a romantic getaway, (if you want romance sit downstairs), sit at the bar if Chris (owner) is working it and you're not with minors, otherwise upstairs no bar. Food is great and sourced locally and Chris is a blast.

Journey across the river via the Hood River toll-bridge and grab a pint and bite at Everybody's Brewing in White Salmon. Best beer in the area, though if you're planning on a few you may wish to hit one of the breweries downtown.
