Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Husum House for one weekend in June (09) and absolutely fell in love. It's a great house with so much character. The rooms are clean and cozy and the setting is perfect for a relaxing getaway. Husum is nothing but a few roads in size and the house sits on a perfect spot of the river. Hood River, OR, a wonderful place to eat, drink, shop, and engage in nightlife, is just 15 minutes away so you truly do have the best of both worlds. In the summer we were able to hike nearby (Sleeping Beauty is a tough one but wholly worth it in the end!), go whitewater rafting (Wetplanet is just across the street!), and sun on the deck, but I'd imagine the winter would allow for a similar amount of nearby activities including snowshoeing and Xcountry skiing.



Matt is incredibly friendly and accommodating. He is very quick to respond, easy to communicate with, and very hospitable. We look forward to another visit!

Love at First Sight

  • 5 of 5

I am scrambling for words on where to begin. In the many years I have traveled, I have been so many vacation rentals. The Husum House was the most beautiful and most enjoyable I have ever stayed in. It is such a beautiful and bright house and it's evident that the owners geniunely love it. The clean crisp air , the beautiful Husum River nearby, the wonderful comfortable beds, blaqkberries and plums, the cleanliness and organization of this house were it's highlights. We loved discovering the hidden swing in the pine tree which was a delight for my young children. My five year old daughter welled up several times knowing we would someday have to leave the house. I could tell she was in love with it as much as I was. It's a difficult house to leave because it's so lovely and we felt so at home in it. Staying in Husum , WA was perfect as it wasn't far from Hood River and still in a quiet place. My parents and entire family loved our stay here and hopefully we will return soon. Thank you for everything Matt and Pam!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such kind and touching words. Pam and I are so happy to hear when our guests enjoy the house the way we do! We feel blessed to have found the property and it makes it all the more worthwhile to be able to offer it to others that can enjoy the house and area and can come back to revisit and recharge from time to time. - Matt & Pam

Adorable House

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this lovely house that exceeded all our expectations. It was even better than the photos showed. It was very clean with all the amenities anyone could possible want. Matt was very helpful in answering all my questions. The property is in a beautiful location right next to the Salmon River. We walked the gorgeous countryside every day and drove to beautiful Hood River and waterfall locations. Henni's Kitchen in White Salmon is a wonderful restaurant. This house is one not to be missed!

Great place to stay in Husum

  • 5 of 5

The Husum House was so nice and exactly what we were looking for in the Gorge. It's quiet and cozy, but there was plenty of space for mutiple familieis. It's so easy to find and it's right on the White Slamon river in Husum, WA across from the Husum Hills golf course. I would recommend this place to my friends and family.

Lovely cottage next to the White Salmon River.

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I are from Boston and we were in Portland visiting with friends and family. But a major highlight of the visit was our stay in the Husum House. We stayed only one night with another couple and their two young children, but we thoroughly enjoyed our experience and the kids did too.

The cottage was impeccably clean and very well organized. The kitchen is spacious and had all the necessary pots, pans, plates, and dishes for fixing meals without being without certain utensils. They even had a large stock of spices and dried herbs. Pam and Matt thought of everything you could possibly need out here.

The shiny wood stove was blazing the moment we arrived until we departed, which created a warm and cozy atmosphere; it was perfect for sipping cocoa or drinking a glass of wine and being with friends. The beds and sleeping quarters were so comfortable it felt like I was sleeping in a piece of heaven. I would rate it as comfortable as sleeping in my own bed.

Upon the suggestion of Matt and Pam, we went to Everybody's Brewing. The young but cool and laid back clientele felt friendly and warm. They served awesome food made from quality ingredients and had a selection of great beers on tap. If they had this place in my neighborhood I would go there all the time.

We would definitely love to come back in warmer weather when we can take advantage of the sun deck and river. The Husum House is the perfect retreat from the city situated in a beautiful environment where you can still go out to a local bar and get excellent food and beer after a long day of playing outside. Thanks to Matt and Pam for creating a memorable and positive experience!!
