Mother's 90th birthday and family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and very clean! It was a wonderful place for my mother to visit with family and friends. There are many sleeping areas and activities to keep the kids (and adults) entertained. It had a great bedroom with bathroom on the main floor that worked great for my mom.

Perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Our large extended family takes an annual vacation together. For the past 4 years we have chosen Hood River because we love the WAAAMuseum where our father has a couple of cars. This year we chose Over the Rainbow Luxury home. This vacation rental was by far the best we've stayed in. Most importantly for us, there is a lovely living room/dining room/kitchen area where everyone can gather to be together. There are also smaller spaces fewer people can go if they want. The entire house is incredibly well appointed and beautiful. The kitchen has everything needed, including some spices. There are bedrooms/bathrooms on the main floor for our mom who can't climb stairs. There isn't a yard, but there is a deck with chairs that several people can sit on at once. The movie theater is incredible and fits everyone! Peggy was so easy to work with. This is the best vacation rental we have had in the past 10 years. We will be back.

Fabulous Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Over the Rainbow luxury home. Our whole family made use of all of its fantastic features from the two year old grandchildren to the grandparents. We barbecued, made use of the fabulous gourmet kitchen for several meals; enjoyed relaxing downtime in the cozy "Irish Pub" room; went to the downstairs "theatre" for movies and popcorn every night; and had spirited and playful competition of pool games, foosball, table tennis, and air hockey. We thoroughly enjoyed the Fruit Loop drive which we took several times to pick fruit, enjoy treats, and partake in the wine and beer tastings. And, the downtown Hood River and the River Park offered many enjoyable hours. The view across the Columbia River of Mt. Adams was enjoyed by all. Definitely a place to return to; again and again.

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! It is so tastefully decorated and fully equipped to the max for an exceptional vacation. We used it as a book group retreat and there was ample room for everyone. This was a repeat stay for this group. We had such a great time last year we thought, 'why reinvent the wheel?' and came back again this year! We LOVE the movie room and the Irish Pub! Where else could you get all that under one roof?! And Peg takes great care of you. We asked several questions re: local adventure and were not disappointed with her suggestions. We highly recommend this wonderful venue

Our entire experience with this property was beyond exceptional. It is perfect for large groups. Our group consisted of 5 couples, 3 singles and 2 toddlers from the Portland Metro area and who flew into PDX from all over the country. We all stayed comfortably. In booking the property, the owner was very timely, professional, detail oriented and easy to work with. All paperwork was straightforward and reasonable. When we arrived we received a thorough walk through of the house and how temperature controls, fireplace, etc work. The house was very clean, and to our surprise it was beautifully decorated for the holidays. Complete with a tree in the main living room and small lighted trees in each bedroom. The location is a quick drive to grocery stores and downtown restaurants, coffee houses, wine tasting and breweries. Some of our favorites being Pfriem, Full Sail, Stoked, and Solstice Pizza. We prepared dinner in on two nights and found the kitchen well stocked. Every item we needed, we found. The double oven and large kitchen island made food prep for 15 very doable. The dining room also sat everyone in our group comfortably. The downstairs theatre room is a dream and the pool table, foosball, and pub rooms all made it very easy to just stay in and have fun. Everyone reported that they enjoyed the room they stayed in and that the beds were comfortable. You can tell that the owners take exceptional care of the property. In the future, we will definitely book the property again if we find ourselves planning a Hood River getaway with a large group of friends.

Awesome place, thanks Peggy!

  • 5 of 5

I've been renting large houses around the country for 15 years for an annual "Boyz"weekend. This house was one of the best! The theater room is amazing. It's literally the size of a small movie theater. The game room and pub allowed us to hang, party, and enjoy the house despite bad weather. The kitchen is fully stocked, including Fiesta dinnerware (personal favorite) and everything we needed to fix good meals and serve a proper dinner as well. Peggy was super helpful and a great landlord.

The only negative was the fact there is basically no yard. It is in a residential neighborhood, but close to a Safeway, Walmart, and enough good restaurants to satisfy all. Oh yeah, nice towels, linens, and amenities overall!

Our group of 11 really enjoyed the house and are all very thankful we were allowed to stay in such an amazing property. I highly recommend this home for all staying in Hood River.
