Beautiful White Salmon Home - Hood River Alternative

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + 1 Sofa-Bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Beautiful 1900's home with old world charm and updated amenities. We have owned this home for almost 10 years and love the house and the area. It is conveniently located in the town of White Salmon (on the WA side) with easy access to hiking, kiting, windsurfing, biking or just walking into town. White Salmon has an excellent brew pub (Everybody's) that attracts visitors from Hood River - with a great view of Mt. Hood from the deck, and a new bakery (White Salmon Baking Co.) that rivals the best you could find in practically any city.

The garden is lovely and relaxing and the house has a deck in front and back. There is a charcoal BBQ and a great long picnic table for outdoor dining. You will find raspberries and grapes growing in the garden - depending on the season.

The house has 2 floors and a basement - lots of storage for gear! More photos available upon request.

About Becky & Doug

We have owned this home since 2007 as our vacation home. We have a 9 year old and she has a wonderful time here. We absolutely love the area and the house. We both windsurf which was the initial draw to this area - but we have since found out about all the other amazing things to do. This house is very relaxing and the little town of White Salmon is so quaint in comparison to the busier town of Hood River. Perfect vacation home for relaxing family getaway.

Becky & Doug purchased this house in 2007

What makes this house unique

Our guests love the house for its cottage charm, the front and back decks, and that there's no TV (but sadly, no-one can live without WiFi internet access...).

A Fabulous Girl's Trip

  • 4 of 5

Two girlfriends and I went to White Salmon and rented this wonderful house, which was perfect for the three of us. We each had a bedroom. The kitchen & bathroom had every condiment you could dream of. Nice back yard to sit in when the weather was sunny. A 'reading' nook with a wonderful reading lamp. A playroom/bedroom for kids, which we didn't use but it was sweet too. We were up there to visit my son who lives there and my daughter from Seattle came down as well. Went to the Harvest Fair, ate out, ate in...all of the above. Truly a comfortable house!! Thank you

Owner's Response: Hi Jane, We're so sorry you were prompted to give us the only poor review we've ever received! Most people love the fact that we don't have a TV, but to make it very clear, I've noted that in the Amenities Notes section of the listing. And I'm sorry you weren't able to find the microwave oven - we keep it under the counter so there's more counter space. I wish you'd asked about it during one of our phone calls. Thanks for the feedback though - it's always helpful. Best - Doug & Becky

Thoroughly enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Convenient location-walk to the amazing White Salmon Baking Company bakery and the grocery store

Takes about 10 min to drive to Hood River. Preferred White Salmon as our home base. Wonderful breezes at night. Lots of space. Great backyard for our daughter. Beautiful home with all the conveniences.

Exquisite respite in the Gorge....

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Wauna House was simply lovely. Well-appointed and everything you need to be cozy and relaxed. My husband and I appreciated the style of the home and arrangement. We spent many mornings on the front porch with coffee, and also a few evenings out back under the strung lights playing cards with a late night drink. Despite the fact that it was record-setting heat the whole week we were here, there were copious fans (we brought one of ours just in case) and we were able to keep the house reasonably cool (105 degree temps outside). The house is located on a sleepy street and the surrounding homes were quiet. The bed on the main floor was very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need to make wonderful meals. Thanks so much for the great stay!

Quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! The layout and decorating is great. The front and back porches are relaxing places to hang out. We preferred staying in White Salmon to Hood River. It's peaceful and quiet with its own market, bars, and restaurants.

We really enjoyed it. Had everything we needed in the house. Easy walking distance to food and playgrounds for the kids in White Salmon. Close to sightseeing and recreation in the Hood River area. Great vacation!
