Beautiful older 1900's home with old world charm and updated amenities. We have owned this home for 6+ years and love the house and the area. It is conveniently located in the town of White Salmon (on the WA side) with easy access to hiking, kiting, windsurfing, biking or just walking into town. White Salmon has an excellent new brew pub ('Everybody's') that attracts visitors from Hood River (with a great view of Mt. Hood from the deck).
The garden is lovely and relaxing and the house has a deck in front and back. There is a charcoal BBQ and a great long picnic table for outdoor dining. You will find raspberries and grapes growing in the garden - depending on the season.
The house has 2 floors and a basement - lots of storage for gear! More photos available upon request.
We have owned this home since 2007 as our vacation home. We have a 9 year old and she has a wonderful time here. We absolutely love the area and the house. We both windsurf which was the initial draw to this area - but we have since found out about all the other amazing things to do. This house is very relaxing and the little town of White Salmon is so quaint in comparison to the busier town of Hood River. Perfect vacation home for relaxing family getaway.
The Owner purchased this house in 2007
We have been Bungalow fans for many years, so staying in Wauna House was a real delight. The home embodies the classic elements of Craftsman-style 30’s construction with some modern upgrades and improvements.
The home is tastefully decorated, beds and other furnishings are comfortable and in good condition.
Kitchen is well stocked with flatware, dishes and cookware. We found everything we needed and more. The appliances all work fine (including the washer/dryer), and the vintage range is terrific.
The front porch is the place to be in the late afternoon, watching the world go by, and the two decks at the back of the house are great for morning coffee (one is accessed from the master bedroom).
Wauna House is situated on a quiet residential street (low traffic) and all the locals were friendly.
In addition to the house itself, we really appreciated the convenience of having everything so close. The grocery store is only a couple of blocks away, and the central business area is an easy walk. There are great pubs and restaurants within minutes of Wauna House.
We’re both fishing and wine enthusiasts, and there are several wineries just a short drive from White Salmon. There are many fishing spots nearby, as well.
Our stay at Wauna House provided us with a clean, comfortable, and convenient base for all our explorations and activities. This was one of our very best vacations!
We stayed 10 days, and it was hard to leave a place that was beginning to feel like home.
We would highly recommend Wauna House and we plan to stay there again. Soon!
My family and I stayed here in July. The location was perfect for a family reunion just a few blocks away, river rafting at Zoller's out of BZ Corners, hiking Dog Mountain (about 15 miles West), hiking Catherine Creek (about 5 miles East) and more hikes and exploring Hood River. The cottage was absolutely adorable, eclectic and clean as a whistle. It was walking distance to a grocery store and downtown White Salmon. Great time!
Loved the charming cozy atmosphere. The house was clean and well organized with everything for a comfortable stay. The washer and dryer were a real bonus. Location allowed for as much excercise as one would want including a park with a full on view of Mt. Hood. Contact with the owners was easy and expectations for both parties well defined. I look forward to returning next year.
We had such a great time at this little White Salmon gem. This truly felt like "home" for us while we stayed there. Great location, lots of light and airflow for those hot summer days, child friendly yard and comfortable decor. Picnic table in the back yard for evening bbqs and fabulous neighbours if you're feeling social. All the modern conveniences you want (dishwasher, washer/dryer) and none of the ones you don't (tv) added to the relaxing atmosphere of the home.
We're counting the days until we can return!
Four of us stayed at this lovely house in May 2011. The front yard was abloom with tulips. The house was just as described, charming and spotlessly clean. We were in White Salmon for a wedding and only stayed a few days, so we did not take advantage of the nearby activities, attractions or restaurant, but the neighbors were very friendly. The owner was very helpful, accommodating our stay of less than one week and allowing us to bring two dogs (with a deposit). The house is located in the heart of White Salmon with pleasant little streets to walk the dogs.
We had a wonderful week in White Salmon at this beautiful, charming home. We so enjoyed being on the Washington side of the Columbia River, close to fantastic hiking/biking and great windsurfing. The house is very comfortable- we opted to cook at home a few nights so that we could enjoy the beautiful, private yard, complete with large picnic table where we sat until late in the evening, sipping wonderful local wines.. The location was perfect- walking distance to the local swimming pool, beautiful trails and the town's main street where you can find 'Everybody's Brew Pub"- not to be missed! The drive to Hood River is only 5 minutes, but we found we had everything we needed on the WA side (without the crowds)- we have discovered a great treasure!
