About Tyler Barnes
Environmentally conscientious, owner-builder, designer with a B.A. in Architectural Studies from the University of Washington. Have lived in "The Gorge" since 1993 and married a real "local girl" from Mosier, Oregon. Together we have traveled the world and settled down in this amazing community. We enjoy sharing our home with people who want to escape the hustle and bustle of their lives and take in all that our little spot has to offer.
Tyler Barnes purchased this House in 2000
Why Tyler Barnes chose Underwood
We bought this one acre parcel back in 1999 with the intent to build a shop and garage with living quarters above – the space you are in now – that we would live in while building the main house, when time and money allowed. As a “young couple” with no money, we searched for used and reclaimed materials, enlisted the help of friends and family to help build this structure, and essentially were able to “build a house” ourselves. Providing shelter for yourself is a primal experience and is exhausting, challenging and rewarding.

Beautiful little loft in the woods
We had the best time at Cooper's Loft! Hosts were quick to respond and stayed in touch, when needed, throughout the trip. This place was EXACTLY what we were looking for that wknd. Somewhere remote enough for peace and quiet but close enough to run into town and grab a bite to eat. Location was exactly that. Also, being so close to the river and the Gorge was right where we wanted to be. Few minutes drive up the road and we had Amazing views of Mt. Hood and Adam's. This loft was so perfect for 2 people and 2 dogs. The dogs loved running around outside and were happy to come in and lay by the warm fire. The place was so cute, clean and cozy!! Had such amazing natural light during the days. The floors r beautiful, the stairs r too. The bed and sheets were super comfy. Loved the big skylight above the bed. The water was nice & hot for our showers and good pressure. Plenty of xtra towels and blankets. Kitchen had everything we needed. Tv and wifi worked great. We were so pleased with everything! Thanks Traci and Tyler we had a great vacation at ur loft. We look forward to our next stay!
Fyi: future travelers
it costs $2 to go across toll bridge, everytime.
We had a birthday celebration in White Salmon and this property - located in a quiet woodsy neighborhood about 15 minutes away - was perfect. Lots of roaming deer...VERY peaceful. Although it was just the 2 of us (+2 dogs) it easily sleeps 4. The owners responded quickly - and patiently (haha) - to my questions...they were great. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property!
Very comfortable and happy place to be
Very comfortable and a happy place to be. Well equipped in bathroom and kitchen and plenty of towels available. Extremely clean and very very nice owners! Highly recommend staying here and you'll enjoy not only the cabin but everything in the area!
We stayed for a little honeymoon. It was just what we were looking for. Cute decor, comfortable, close to activities but quiet, and it has a nice TV. We stayed when it was super hot (mid to high 90s) and it was pretty toasty. I was comfortable but my husband runs pretty hot and was disappointed there was not central air. There is an air conditioner in the bedroom but the water reserve fills up quickly and it would not stay on the whole night. Other than that this place is amazing. I would highly recommend and would gladly come back. It was hard to leave at check out time!
Quiet, quaint place. Relaxing retreat that allows dogs. Wild turkeys and deer wander through the property. We go enjoy all the wonders of the area and then come back and relax in the back yard hammock and ski lift chair swing and barbecue on the deck
Perfect - quiet, private, comfy and more
I expected it would be nice but this place is much nicer than I gathered from the listing photos. Beautifully furnished and well-equipped. Everything I needed was available and easy to find. It was a great comfort to return to after a hard day's play. I like quiet and privacy and was not disappointed. Owner is extremely responsive and helpful - many replies were almost immediate. This is one of the best, most-carefree vacation stays I have ever had. Many thanks to the owners!
White Salmon is 4 miles away with most major services.
