Mt Hood, OR Vacation Rentals: Room for Two or More
Traveling solo? Plenty of space. As a couple? We have something cozy for you. Small family looking for a yard? We’ve got you covered! Our one-bedroom vacation homes have a variety of amenities to suit your needs, whether you’re looking for extra beds to fit the family, or a great location just steps from Hood River bars and restaurants.
The Hood River Region
When you’re not relaxing in our cozy Hood River Oregon rentals, discover this amazing area. Just on the Oregon side of the Oregon-Washington border, the town of Hood River sits at the confluence of the Columbia and Hood Rivers, in the scenic Columbia River Gorge. With picturesque Mount Hood in the background, this town’s natural beauty is hard to beat.
But there’s more: the Hood River is famous for being a hub of outdoor recreation, such as hiking, mountain biking, and kayaking, as well as becoming increasingly known for windsurfing as well. While windsurfing may not be for everyone, we can all enjoy watching the incredible feats of these fine athletes; peak time for it is in the middle of the day. Just follow Second Street to the waterfront! There’s also a protected harbor in which beginners can learn safely, if you do want to try.
Cider and Vineyards and Festivals, oh my!
You will find plenty of things to do nearby our Mt Hood, OR vacation rentals. The Hood River region has long been known for its fine agricultural products such as apples and pears, as well as wine-producing vineyards. But in recent years, its agricultural festivals have also drawn much acclaim: visit in April for the Hood Valley Hard-Pressed Cider Fest, and in October for the Hood River Hops Fest. If you’re not a drinker, don’t worry: the region’s abundant farms and markets will still keep you very busy with all the apples and pears you can possibly enjoy!
