Stay at Husum house

  • 4 of 5

Good house and amenities, as well as location for getting to Mt Adams/Trout Lake area. Clean up requirements at end of stay are a bit onerous and takes some advance planning but otherwise a great place.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate this kind of feedback so that we can continue to improve guests experience, so thank you! I believe the onerous item was requiring guests to both run AND empty the dishwasher prior to check out. We have since updated the checkout process though to just running the dishwasher but not having to wait around and empty it as well. Here is our updated checkout process: Upon checkout: • Take all garbage and recycling out to the curb - Tuesdays are pick-up days. • Wash dishes or run dishwasher with any remaining dirty dishes. • Strip used beds and place used towels and linens in a pile by the washer or on the floor. • Lock all doors and return the house key to the lockbox.

The house was terrific. 9 guests stayed at the home for Thanksgiving. House is well stocked and clean. Had trouble with the dishwasher, but I informed the owner and he was on it. Owners are great and easy to work with. Thanks again for a very lovely stay!

Sweet house in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cute farmhouse with a group of 10 for two nights, to do a raft trip on the White Salmon with Wet Planet Rafting. The location is perfect--we could walk right to the Wet Planet office, and check out Husum Falls from the bridge! We loved having the deck with BBQ, and the nice wood stove to warm up after the dunk in the river. Everything is clean and tidy, well supplied kitchen, very quiet and private with just the sound of the river. I would highly recommend for up to 6 people for an extended stay; 10 was possible but a a bit cozy!

Great Rvierside Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is an older home with great character nestled just downriver from Husum falls. You can see Husum from outside the upper window. It is well stocked and great property. The sound of the river is nice and the fireplace makes a cozy place to relax. Everything is in great working condition and the owner is very accommodating and responsive. I would recommend this property. It is close to WS, super close to the river for the BZ to Husum kayak run and an easy drive to all the trails around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Husum House for one weekend in June (09) and absolutely fell in love. It's a great house with so much character. The rooms are clean and cozy and the setting is perfect for a relaxing getaway. Husum is nothing but a few roads in size and the house sits on a perfect spot of the river. Hood River, OR, a wonderful place to eat, drink, shop, and engage in nightlife, is just 15 minutes away so you truly do have the best of both worlds. In the summer we were able to hike nearby (Sleeping Beauty is a tough one but wholly worth it in the end!), go whitewater rafting (Wetplanet is just across the street!), and sun on the deck, but I'd imagine the winter would allow for a similar amount of nearby activities including snowshoeing and Xcountry skiing.

Matt is incredibly friendly and accommodating. He is very quick to respond, easy to communicate with, and very hospitable. We look forward to another visit!
