I have been coming to the Scenic Columbia River Gorge for over 20 years - I love this magical place; so full of the Best that Mother Nature has to offer - from the best wineries, fruit orchards, biking & hiking trails, waterfalls, lakes, mountains, and the list goes on and on...if you love the outdoors - you will love it here!
I first came to the Columbia River Gorge to Windsurf which has always been a big passion for me. I have seen Hood River grow, and develop into an amazing Community of likeminded people who enjoy nature and the great outdoors.
I love gardening and really enjoy planting flowers and being here to see them blossom. I have planted an Apple tree, Japanese Pear tree, and a fig tree (that has gifted me some wonderful figs!). As well I have also planted lavendar, rosemary, sage, irises (large purple ones that bloom in June)and many other sweet adornments.
My projects last year included remodeling the kitchen and bathroom - along with refinishing the original fir floors. You will love the warmth that this cozy home has to offer!
We thoroughly enjoyed our extended stay in this cozy home in Bingen, Wa. Denise is very friendly, helpful, and hospitable. We highly recommend a stay here!
The house has many great updates- very nice kitchen, bathroom, washer & dryer, satellite television, dvd player, and wifi. The kitchen is stocked with everything needed to make a nice meal to be enjoyed in warm weather out on the deck. The yard has undergone a major renovation and it is beautiful. Again, the large deck is a peaceful place to enjoy the gorgeous views and drink a cup of coffee or glass of wine.
Staying in Bingen/White Salmon (a quick 5 minute trip across the bridge) is a great alternative to downtown Hood River. There are many excellent restaurants- Henni’s and Everybody’s Brewing in White Salmon. Bingen has Taqueria El Rinconcito Express, Mugs Coffee, Dicky’s Farm Store, and several more restaurants. The Farm Store carries many local wines, produce, and freshly baked pies & donuts. The Feast Store in White Salmon also has a nice selection of local and organic products some of which we don’t have in Portland. If you have a chance visit AniChe Cellars, Syncline, and Domaine Pouillon Wineries. Dog Mountain is a great hike with an awesome summit view. The trains run often, in our opinion it adds to the charm and it’s easily tolerated. Our young kids loved it and would run to windows to catch a glimpse. We have great memories of our stay here and look forward to coming back again soon.
Our stay at this VRBO was quite pleasant. The four star rating (instead of five) is due to the train noise, especially the whistles ... throughout the night. Otherwise, the property is "as advertised." Denise is a most gracious host, sharing information about the area, as well as the local fruit! We enjoyed outings to both sides of the river, multiple mountains, and even saw deer from the house.
Add this to "Lita Lilly's" review. I am "the other grandma" to our lovely twin granddaughters who live in Hood River. Denise's little hideaway was a blissful haven for 5 months for these two very happy but very tired grandmas. Lita Lilly and I mostly alternated our time in Oregon. We spent many nights with our kids giving them help and breaks with the babies so we really needed a place to go to just relax and enjoy ourselves. And our kids, though happy and grateful to have us, needed their own time as well.
It was so wonderful to be able to come "home" to Bingen as we came to think of Denise's rental. It was clean, warm, cozy, comfortable, homey and had everything we needed. Denise was very responsive to any request or suggestion.
As mentioned before, there is a train that goes by from time to time. I didn't grow up with the sound of the train whistle but I found that I rather liked it.
Lita and I will have to toss a coin to see which one of us buys the house if Denise ever sells it. Or we may just have to buy it together!!
Thank you so much Denise for providing this wonderful haven for us!
When my daughter's Mother-in-law and I found out we were going to be grandmas to twins , we asked our kids to look for a place we could both rent near them in Hood River. They found this cute house in Bingen and took a look at it. It was only 5 miles away across the bridge and we said it looked great so we follwed thru with a long term rental agreement with Denise. When the babies arrived 2 months early we made plans for our long stay in Oregon. Over the next 5 months we took turns or both stayed in the house driving across the bridge to help out with the newborns.
My sister drove up with me from Ca. and our first night there we both heard the train and loved it ,saying it reminded us of our grandparents house. The house was very comfortable and peaceful.The drive over the Columbia river into Hood River was beautiful , with the snow capped mountains. We stayed over the Xmas holidays and the town was so pretty all lit up at night. I even brought some of my Xmas decorations because my husband came up over the holidays to meet his granddaughters.
We found a great pizza place that became a favorite to us. There's also a great Burger place in town.
I can't say enough about our stay there. It became our home and I told Denise I'd buy the place from her if she was selling! I'd love to return next year.
I would definately recommend this house to friends & family. It's truely a great find.
We spent a long holiday weekend in Bingen and had a very nice time. The house is cute and comfortable with a nice deck and garden to enjoy. It is close to nice hiking, and the town is pleasant for walking - down to the river, a coffee house, or wine tasting. The owner is friendly, welcoming and responsive - clearly wanting her guests to have a good experience.
There are only a couple of things that I felt detracted a bit. The bed in the second bedroom is a futon, which is not all that comfortable. And, as mentioned in a previous post, you do hear the trains going by. So, if you are a light sleeper, I would bring earplugs or a white noise machine.
In the scheme of things, those were minor annoyances. But, it is why I gave it 4 (rather than 5) stars.
We did enjoy our stay and found the owner delightful.
This property was perfect place to stay for use as the hub of our trip in and around Washington & Oregon. It was spotlessly clean & had all the amenities required. The arrival went off without a hitch. Denise was very friendly & gave us plenty of information regarding the surrounding attractions, restaurants & wineries. The weather during our stay was exceptionally hot. I would recommend that an air conditioner be installed. That way the windows could be kept closed & reduce the noise from the trains. All in all, this was a fantastic find & would recommend it to anyone who wanted to see Hood river & surrounding area.
315 North Cedar is on the way to the lovely scenic route to the Windriver Winery. Fruit Orchards, World class Flyfishing, white water kayaking, and rafting on the White Salmon river are just a stone's throw away. The famous fish hatchery, Swell City, and Doug's Beach are just a 10 minute drive away. The bird's eye view from Dog Mountain along with many other hikes are all on the Washingtion side of the Columbia River.
Bingen and White Salmon also have some of the best Bistros and Restaurants that the Gorge has to offer - all a 2 minute drive away.
