Hood River Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Situated in Mosier, ( 5 min to HR) with its back side on a quiet street; designed and built by master craftsman glenn nelson, this cottage is pure funk and pure cool, a rustic modern motif, full of architectural details standing alongside a beautiful cherry tree. Enjoy having cocktails outside on the handcrafted stone patio, walk under the trellis and eat cherries from the tree. Step inside
Notice all the custom concrete work, the fusion of modern glass with iron and metal, and wood. Wood stone and steel: the roughsawn 100 year old salvaged timbers, the modern glass, and the concrete terrrazo floor.
The simple small kitchen, easy to prepare a meal and all within a simple reach,
Have a cocktail and take it all in, plan your day in the beautiful gorge and come again and again to this functional artistic simplicity of this quaint little cottage . ( think one open room with loft above)
Head to ten speed in the morning and ride up to the old hiway before ten. So many things to do and explore.
At the end of the day, climb up the wooden ladder to your comfy loft and allow slumber to set in. Night night
- non smoking only
- pets considered
We Have Lived In The Gorge For Over 20 Years.

Rustic modern was his inspiration using salvaged and hard to come by materials, the whole cottage was designed and made by glenn . Its a testament to his wood craft, his love of concrete, to design and to contrast. The modern glass contrasting with the old rough sawn wood creates a hip and cozy ambiance. It is all new construction, people think it s old but really its all new and done in his personal style.
In 2003 he completed the renovated victorian next door , showcasing his variety.
Mosier is just a great little getaway, quaint and inviting , you can walk to anything and you feel relaxed right away. Bike from the house, walk to the beach( 8min) or just settle into the mosier life.
Hood river is only 6 miles away for more shopping and dining experience, then come home,( or bike home( if you dare on the old hiway) to mosier
NOTE: you need to be able to ambulate a ladder to get to the low level sleeping loft
