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!

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.

Perfect home in a great spot

  • 5 of 5

Incredibly lovely place to stay. Excellent for large groups and family gatherings. I loved the decor and the place really felt like home. Matt was great, super easy to work with and great at communicating. The location is perfect with a deck overlooking the river. I will definitely stay there again at some point.

Love at First Sight

  • 5 of 5

I am scrambling for words on where to begin. In the many years I have traveled, I have been so many vacation rentals. The Husum House was the most beautiful and most enjoyable I have ever stayed in. It is such a beautiful and bright house and it's evident that the owners geniunely love it. The clean crisp air , the beautiful Husum River nearby, the wonderful comfortable beds, blaqkberries and plums, the cleanliness and organization of this house were it's highlights. We loved discovering the hidden swing in the pine tree which was a delight for my young children. My five year old daughter welled up several times knowing we would someday have to leave the house. I could tell she was in love with it as much as I was. It's a difficult house to leave because it's so lovely and we felt so at home in it. Staying in Husum , WA was perfect as it wasn't far from Hood River and still in a quiet place. My parents and entire family loved our stay here and hopefully we will return soon. Thank you for everything Matt and Pam!

Adorable House

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this lovely house that exceeded all our expectations. It was even better than the photos showed. It was very clean with all the amenities anyone could possible want. Matt was very helpful in answering all my questions. The property is in a beautiful location right next to the Salmon River. We walked the gorgeous countryside every day and drove to beautiful Hood River and waterfall locations. Henni's Kitchen in White Salmon is a wonderful restaurant. This house is one not to be missed!

Great place to stay in Husum

  • 5 of 5

The Husum House was so nice and exactly what we were looking for in the Gorge. It's quiet and cozy, but there was plenty of space for mutiple familieis. It's so easy to find and it's right on the White Slamon river in Husum, WA across from the Husum Hills golf course. I would recommend this place to my friends and family.
