About Claudia

We were looking for a home away from home for us to share with my brother's family who live in Los Angeles. We now live in Atlanta and we wanted access to snow and cooler summers! We always loved the West Coast and with one family member already living in Hood River this was the perfect place!

Claudia purchased this house in 2008

Why Claudia chose Hood River

We were looking for a vacation home on the West Coast in beautiful country but not too far from a city. After reading about it in the book, '1,000 Places To See Before You Die' we were convinced this was for us with its waterfalls, skiing, hiking and wineries. And its proximity to Portland, one of my favorite cities. The town of Hood River is just the right size with with plenty to offer.

What makes this house unique

We love the modern open plan of the house including an airy lower level with a second deck for kids and adult activities. The location is just outside of the town on a lovely country road that is great for walking and even cross country skiing.

We also like to cook and eat great food, all available in Hood River at their Farmers Market and restaurants. We are wine lovers and my husband will be happy to map out a wine tasting tour.

We have employed a professional rental manager, a long time resident, who will take care of all of your needs including your reservation, discounts to attractions etc.

We were thrilled with this beautiful retreat.

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 8 adults and 2 toddlers stayed at Fir Mountain Retreat from 10/3-10/7/2013. I cannot overstate what a beautiful property it is nor how well it worked for our family. There was nothing we could have needed that wasn't available. The space was so comfortable, the views outstanding...it really is a little piece of heaven. Two of the bedrooms have separated spaces so that the toddlers didn't have to sleep with their parents...a huge plus. The woodburning stove was wonderful to take the chill out of the air and gated off safely from the children. Two mornings we were treated to 18 deer moseying up the hill. If we are lucky enough to visit Hood River again, we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Nice home on a hill!

  • 5 of 5
Arriving late on a Friday night, we weren't able to appreciate the outdoors that surround this home. Our morning brought a raccoon visitor in the tree just outside the back door, as well as a family of deer and wild turkeys roaming the property. What a treat!
We are two families ( 4 adults, 4 children) that travel together frequently and like the convenience and comfort of a home over a hotel room. Your home offered everything we needed, and then some. The hottub was a must after a long day of skiing - the kids were in it more than the adults! Our families also enjoyed the game area in the basement on more than one occasion.
The home is a bit remote, but certainly a perfect central location for getting to Mt Hood to ski or heading up to Hood River for a day in town.
Very clean, tons of towels, bedding and comfy beds.
Thank you for sharing your home. I would recommend it for those traveling to Portland to ski.

A wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Fir Mountain. There was a large group of us (10 adults and 3 babies), and we all loved this house! It would have been nice to have a little more time here. We had more than enough room for having our separate space for families, and the kitchen was great for having a larger group (we had many delicious meals). The home is clean and well maintained and had everything we needed. There is a beautiful view of Mt. Adams from the back during the day, and at night (in the hot tub) the stars were amazing. We also enjoyed seeing the deer in the backyard each morning. The location was great, as it’s a quick drive into Hood River but far enough away to feel like you're away in the woods. It was about a 30 min or so drive to snowshoeing on Mt. Hood; I imagine this place would be great in the summer as well with all the orchards nearby. Also, when reserving the place both the owner and the rental agency were very pleasant and got back to us quickly, which we appreciate! We would definitely recommend this house for others and we would love to come back again in the future!

Fir Mountain Escape

  • 5 of 5
A perfect house in a perfect location. Nestled on a wooded mountain-side, this contemporary house furnished in a lovely, comfortable, simple style with a well-supplied kitchen and breathtaking views provided our family with the space and relaxed life style for a wonderful vacation. The area provides excellent opportunities for outdoor activities: biking and hiking, visits to orchards, a lavender farm, an alpaca farm and more. But we all loved coming back to Fir Mountain to sit on the deck or in the house and look over the valley, catching a glimpse of Mount Adams on a clear day and watching the drama of the weather or a brilliant sunset. While there are many good restaurants not far away in the town of Hood River, we mostly preferred to cook as the kitchen worked well and we enjoyed being in the house so much.

Wine Trip

  • 5 of 5
Excellent stay. Lovely place in a beautiful setting. Lots of room (we had seven people). Everything you need to enjoy your vacation. About 15 minutes to town. Owners were helpful and responsive. Lots of wineries in the area and good restaurants in town. Would definitely stay there again.

First, we look back on our stay at Fir Mountain as one of our finest vacations in the last eighty years (my wife Ruth and I celebrated the year of our eightieth birthdays, along with our 52nd wedding anniversary). Your beautiful Escape had much to do with that, because of the trees, the views, the animals (our grandson woke us early the first morning to make sure we could see the two mama deer nursing their little ones), and the architecture and comforts of the house itself. The surrounding orchards and vineyards lent still more charm to the week, as did our various side trips: Mount Hood, Horsetail Falls, long hikes (one of six miles), our first rock-climbing expedition--a considerable adventure for two octogenarians--, and explorations in the inviting town of Hood River.

Against all this our tiny complaints seem niggling and hardly worth mentioning. We enjoyed the deck outside the dining area immensely, but our enjoyment was mixed with some frustration over all the drippings from the trees, about which your instructions give fair warning. But I do not share the idea of some of your previous guests that the offending trees should be removed. We all love trees too much to add our voices to that suggestion. In sum, you have every right to be very proud of what Fir Mountain Escape has to offer. Thank you for having it available. And for having done everything with such exquisitely good taste.Gratefully,Tom
