About Eric

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

Why Eric chose Hood River

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.

What makes this house unique

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).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for providing a lovely home base for our Hood River adventures.

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.

Charming, cozy and convenient!

  • 4 of 5

My visit to Bluff Cottage was thoroughly enjoyable! Some amenities could be updated, but it adds to the charm of this cozy little place. The location is so convenient to walk into town, particularly to attend the annual holiday parade and lighting ceremony, which was good fun. The owner was also really great in attending to some maintenance in quick fashion, responding to my issue within a matter of hours late at night. Would recommend this property for singles and couples needing a few days away.

Great location & enjoyable stay... could use some TLC

  • 3 of 5

We had a great stay in Hood River. The rental was a perfect location and size for 2 couples (4 of us). The house could use some TLC and a few items need replacing, with that said the owner was quick to reply and noted our concerns.

Great place!

What a great place and value! We had a view of the river and the sound system was fantastic! The Cottage has everything you need. We would come back in a heartbeat and may thanks to Eric - he was very responsive and accommodating.

Great for 2-3 people. Very cozy. Hot tub is awesome. Lower deck had lots of mosquito at dinner time.

Beds and linens are good. Kitchen well stocked with spices! Home nicely appointed. Some painting and carpet cleaning needed. We were happy for Small a/c unit in great room which was needed during 90+ degree temps!

Love the house and appreciate the AC. Showing some wear and tear this year, and found ants to be an issue so kept kitchen garbage outside.
