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!
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.
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.
