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 Mount Hood

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.

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.

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.

Good stay

  • 4 of 5

This is a perfect little cottage in walking distance to town. Eric was a breeze to work with and he let us check in a bit early too! Great kitchen for preparing meals. The jacuzzi was nice outside but the back porch needs some TLC. The chairs were dirty and the deck needs a good washing. The beds were very comfy. The couch in the living area needs a cleaning or replacement. It's microfiber/suede and feels oily all over. All in all, we would definitely stay here again. We enjoyed our time immenslely! Thank you Eric!

Wonderful cottage and great location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Eric and Meagan, for a wonderful stay at your cottage. It was a lovely house and very convenient to walk to the downtown Hood River area, and very accessible to the highways and main roadways. The house was very comfortable for five guests, and the view to the river was a great sight to see every day from the back porch. The weather over Memorial Day weekend was much hotter than anticipated, so the air conditioning was not set to turn on for the summer weather yet. However, after a quick call to the owner, Eric kindly drove out to cottage to set the A/C unit to turn on for the summer and ensured our stay was more than comfortable. We were so appreciative of his quick responsiveness and for making our visit a pleasant one. Thank for the lovely visit to your house and Hood River. We hope to return in the future!
