We spent a lot of time planning for a family gathering for the Thanksgiving holiday, and I'm so happy we picked the Hood River Villa. The house is beautiful and when we arrived it was sparkling clean. The view is lovely, the beds were comfortable (nice linens!) and the kitchen was fantastic. There were nine of us, and we loved having plenty of cozy places to gather. It's not obvious from the photos, but the kitchen opens up to the dining room and has a breakfast bar and a smaller flat screen TV, which allowed people to gather close to the kitchen while we prepared our turkey feast in a very well-stocked kitchen. The media room on the ground floor is something else--perfect for movie night! Just a note: if you have more than 4 couples, the extra person or people will be sleeping on a queen-sized inflatable bed, but it was a top-of-the-line version, with an easy push-button system. Full Sail Brewing is walkable, and there is lots of hiking nearby. We'd recommend the Mosier Twin Tunnels hike for families--it's just a few miles from the house, and it's a paved trail with great views, making it an accessible option for varying levels of fitness. Samantha was friendly and answered all of our questions in a timely manner, both before and during our stay. We'd stay here again, without a doubt.
