Family-Friendly Home Near Skiing and Snowboarding with Private Hot Tub - Dogs OK
Relax at this comfortable, family-friendly Hood River vacation rental! With a location just a few steps away from activities in town, this rustic and dog-friendly home is a great base for all your adventure needs!
This four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom vacation home is super convenient for anyone who likes to get outdoors. Hood River is famous for its world-class windsurfing, kiteboarding, and gorgeous views of the Columbia River Gorge. With Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood visible, skiing and snowboarding are only a 45-minute drive from this lovely Hood River getaway. The shopping, restaurants, and hot spots of the charming downtown area are only a few steps out the door.
The main level is inviting with high ceilings, an open living and dining space, and a large, country-inspired kitchen. There's a cozy sitting space beneath a huge window where you can see the Gorge, plus with a gas fireplace, so it's easy to curl up with a glass of wine and relax. The dining table seats up to six, and with two chairs that pull up to the kitchen bar, there's room for everyone to sit and chat while you prepare an awesome meal.
The kitchen has charming white cabinets, with plenty of counter space and extras like a coffee grinder, blender, and slow cooker. Just out the door, there's the spacious back deck.
Down the hallway, you'll find the main bedroom and a second bedroom. The master is delightful with a queen-size bed, large windows and plenty of sunlight. The second bedroom is perfect for the kids or a couple of friends to snuggle up in with twin bunk beds and charming bedspreads, not to mention the toys and games in the corner. The full bathroom on this level is bright and no one will have to wait in line too long.
The lower level of this home offers additional space and is perfect for any part of your group wanting a little extra privacy. With light purple paint, leather couches, and a TV in the sitting area, it's easy to take a break from it all. Plus with the kitchenette, guests staying down here won't have to go very far to grab a snack or a beer. Around the corner, two bedrooms await, both with queen-size beds that will be very inviting after a day of skiing, windsurfing or hiking. This home will comfortably sleep up to eight guests.
With cable, and WiFi throughout, as well as a DVD and CD player, everyone will stay entertained during the evening hours. This Hood River getaway is also dog-friendly, so for an additional nightly fee, you can bring your dogs along!
Hood River is known as a 'sports mecca' with all it has to offer for skiing, snowboarding, windsurfing, kite surfing, hiking, kayaking and mountain biking nearby. With Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood both visible, it's no wonder Double Mountain Brewery fits in so well here, plus the cute shops and restaurants that dot the streets of downtown. Nothing beats coming home to a warm, private hot tub after trying your hand at any of the many outdoor activities available. It's located on the second-floor deck!
Mekong Thai restaurant is right next door and the popular Brian's Pourhouse is just a 10-minute walk. Portland is only about an hour away, and the incredible Columbia River Gorge is spectacular any time of year.
4 dogs welcome in this home. No other animals are allowed without specific Vacasa approval.

Maritz at the Columbia was perfect for our group of 6 adults and one toddler. The home was well equipped, clean, and comfortable. It was so handy to be right in Hood River for our activities. We would stay again!
Tara B.Jul 2022
Home was clean and well stocked. We loved that it was walking distance to town. Would definitely stay again!
Maciej T.Jun 2022
Nice location, fairly clean but definitely older house . Overall satisfied.
Joshua S.Apr 2022
The pictures of this house on line don’t do the house justice. The kitchen was very well stocked and had nice upgraded appliances. Bedrooms were comfy, and the separate area downstairs was a bonus. Great spot for families! I would definitely book here again.
Lauren K.Feb 2022
beautiful views. hot tub worked fine. moldy shower curtain. carpets and furnishings need a deep clean. maid does a fine job but some things need more than maid service. TV is awful. Needs an upgrade.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Lauren. We are glad you enjoyed the views and we appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement. We will follow up with our local team to address these areas of needed attention, and we hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We had a good time. Even though it was over 100 degrees for almost a week, the window units upstairs were adequate. The kitchen is well stocked, towels and bedding were clean and comfortable but the house does need a carpet cleaning, due I imagine to the fact that it allows up to 4 dogs and it's seemingly always booked. The location was close to shopping and the Thai take out place next door was excellent! There was a little bit of deferred maintenance, but the Vacasa rep handled our concerns within an hour!!! 5 Stars for Vacasa service!

Perfect landing pad for a couple of nights. Very well-stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and good location. Thank you!
Whitney R.Dec 2020
This home was perfect for our family to spend the winter break. The two levels allowed for the younger kids to sleep while the older members stayed up late without waking anyone up. Hood River lost gas supply our 2nd night there, but Trish was SO helpful in bringing us 4 space heaters, and a toaster oven so we could bake for the holidays. The electric range downstairs in the small apt saved us - didn't think at all that we'd be using it when we booked it. The kitchen was stocked with just about everything you'd need - 2 crockpots!! Locating the driveway/garage can be a little tricky - just be sure to look at a map. Hot tub fits two adults comfortably, which was just fine with us!
Deborah B.Dec 2020
We were so delighted with this home! It was clean, beautiful and had an amazing view of the river. Sipping coffee while watching barges meander up the river was just what we needed for this weekend getaway. Our only suggestion would be to put a bit in the directions about how to find the front of the house. Not hard to do, but the address is a bit confusing. We are hoping to return in the future and would recommend this house to all our family and friends! Thank you!:)
Leticia O.Dec 2020
this home was absolutely gorgeous! It was a great get away for the thanksgiving holiday. One thing that really stood out to me was the fact that they had a guest book for us to sign. It was nice reading how Vacasa has given people a place to step away from all the negativity going on in the world right now. So for that thank you. I have nothing negative to say about this home. From the view to location, the cleanliness and comfort. everything was absolutely amazing.
Darren A.Oct 2020
Location is convenient to downtown but everything else about the house is forgettable. Weird street location. House is seriously dated. No smart TV.
Darren, we are sorry to hear the condition of the home did not meet your expectations. We make every effort to present clear, accurate descriptions of our homes in order for guests to make informed decisions on their rental choices. We provide photos, a virtual tour, a unit description, and a list of available amenities so that future guests know exactly what they will be seeing upon arrival. We encourage guests to reach out with any questions or concerns prior to booking, as we are happy to help. We would love the opportunity to host you again!
Janice U.Jul 2020
The three bedrooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. Kitchen was easy to work in and stocked well with dishes, utensils and cookware. We would rent again. Jan U.
Dacian F.Jul 2020
Good location, clean and spacious. We will return!
Ann T.Jan 2020
Great common space, with open kitchen and living room. Well equipped kitchen suited us well as we cooked meals. Central location for driving to town, skiing, hiking.
Letha P.Nov 2019
The house was just as described on the site. Well stocked kitchen, clean , comfortable beds and plenty of space. The only down fall was the gas stove wouldn’t come on and the house cleaners need to check all the lights some burnt out ones, and the bedding in the bunk beds need faxed out. Otherwise the house was perfect and it had a plenty of room for the six of us.
We are happy that you had a great birthday celebration! We have passed along your feedback to the manager. We hope we can host you again soon!
Amy G.Oct 2019
Great, easy walking distance location to downtown. Lots of room and well stocked space.
Mark W.Sep 2019
The house was conveniently located, clean, plenty of options for linens, and well-stocked. Also, the owners were easy to deal with and the information provided was accurate. There were was only one issue, the fire alarm in the downstairs was broken and keep going off.
Hi Mark, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay in our home! We have repaired the fire alarm. We hope to host you again soon!
Katy B.Apr 2019
What a great house! Fantastic view of the river and a cozy space made us feel right at home! A quiet neighborhood, but walkable to plenty of amenities, and a quick drive to downtown. We really enjoyed our weekend and would gladly stay here again!
Thomas M.Dec 2018
Great house. Hard to find at first as the entrance is off 18th street. Great River view - HR bridge to the Hook. Gas fireplace throws off a lot of heat. Not overly fancy, but functional. Sort of shabby kitschy chic.
Mike K.Oct 2018
Large home with tons of sleep space. Not overly spacious but large enough for your group with a great common space. About a 15 minute walk to downtown Hood River. Would have been 6/5 stars if the hot tub was still there
Nicole G.Sep 2018
We loved our stay here! It was in a good location, not directly downtown but not far enough that we couldn't walk. We will definitely be staying here again!
Richard M.Sep 2018
Fine place to spend a few nights with friends and family
Sarah H.Sep 2018
Good location for a family wedding.
Wyatt W.Jul 2018
Great spot to have some of my groomsman stay during my wedding weekend. Close to town, but also close to other rentals in the area that my loved ones were staying at! Plenty of space, great view. Thanks!
Katie G.Apr 2018
Spacious enough for 8 adults to very comfortably spend a long weekend. Kitchen had everything you need to prepare meals. Beds and bathrooms were well equipped. We had a great experience and would stay again!

Great spot to enjoy Hood River and all of the surrounding area from.
Vickie S.Sep 2017
If we have another sibling reunion in hood River we would stay here and hopefully the refrigerator problem will be fixed .
KITTY F.Jul 2017
the house was clean and well equipped, the entry and communication for check in was as stated.
Jennifer G.Jan 2017
Warm house with huge windows overlooking gorge. Bring your own coffees grinder.
Claire F.Jan 2017
We had originally booked a stay in a cabin in zig zag with the same company but the morning of our stay recieved a call that the pipes were frozen and the offer to stay at another property. The closest they could get us was this Hood River house. I actually think we enjoyed this property more than we would have the cabin. It was perfect for our ski trip to Mt. Hood. We had our dog, 2 young children, and parents stay. The house was comfortable and clean. The view is beautiful if it's a clear day. My only tiny complaint was that the furnace is pretty loud when it kicks on. We would stay here again and recommend to others. Thanks!
LAURA D.Dec 2016
We have loved this home in the past because it is in a good location, dog friendly, and has a hot tub. However, this visit the hot tub was broken, many light bulbs were burnt out, and a smoke alarm was beeping. The cost was too high for a home that is not properly kept up. If the owner would like to keep renting it, they should do some much needed upkeep.
We are disappointed to see that this guest was not as thrilled with their stay this time. The owners have opted out of replacing the hot tub at this time, but batteries and light bulbs have been changed out, and the carpet and blinds have been replaced.
PAULA M.Nov 2016
The house could use TLC but the beds were comfy and it has a great view!!
Vikas T.Sep 2016
Carrie N.Sep 2016
Enjoyed our stay. Property was clean and kitchen very well stocked for cooking.
Diana P.Sep 2016
If you are considering this property.....keep looking.
We are sorry to read this and appreciate any constructive feedback that can help us to improve.
Nathan F.Aug 2016
Hood river is a fun place to stay and this house make everything just a short drive away.
Sherryl G.Jul 2016
We love Hood River and this home is very centrally located. Nice separation of space for several family members or friends. The refrigerator is a bit run down and one of the toilets kept running. Dining table is roomy. Nothing fancy but beds were comfortable and space was very usable.
Abby L.Jun 2016
A group of us recently just visited Hood River for the first time and really enjoyed our stay at this home. We were able to walk downtown (about a mile) and we were only a 5 minute ride from a winery that we checked out and a 15 minute drive from white water rafting. The bridge to get over the river is $1:) The house was a little difficult to find but thanks to trusty Google maps we figured it out - it's not actually ON Columbia but off the main road Cascade. The hot tub was a nice addition and I'm sure in the fall and winter months very relaxing! Would recommend this house for large groups or family. Plenty of space for everyone.
John S.Jun 2016
The location was good, but the house was not very clean. There were dead bugs in the window sills and an infection of baby spiders, a bunch of garbage in the garage, including a used diaper on the old stove range. There were dirty floors and dishes in the cabinets. Overall I was disappointed by the lack of cleanliness.
We apologize that housekeeping was lacking for this stay. The garbage has been taken care of, the windows cleaned, and the dishes properly cleaned as well.
Kristian A.May 2016
Good location to store, pretty decent and safe walk to downtown HR. Plenty of driveway and garage parking, however somewhat difficult to find from the street for some folks. House is a middle-range place to stay; could use some cleaning of the actual structure (carpet, walls, blinds), but the open living area and kitchen up top were very nice and the bedrooms and bathrooms were great (and clean). Also, there were no blinds/drapes in the lower windows and living area, which makes privacy an issue. Some concern about the deck size/capacity/condition especially with a giant hot tub on it, but for a quick trip with no giant expectations from Portland this was great!
Emily E.May 2016
Stayed at Maritz with a large group of friends and a few dogs. Great location right off the main road, walkable to town. Nice large kitchen/great room for hanging out and cooking. Bedrooms were all nicely furnished and clean. The hot tub was unusually loud and ran the entire weekend, even though the jets were off and it's in need of a new cover.
We are happy to hear about your stay at the home and that you enjoyed it! Thank you for your feedback about the hot tub in the home, we have notified our local property manager who will be addressing your concerns. We hope to have you back soon!
Laura D.Mar 2016
We really enjoy staying here! We plan to return.
Gerard L.Jan 2016
Two families rented this home for a quick getaway from mid-Holiday Portland and had a great time. The home was warm and inviting when we arrived, with lots of room in the kitchen for cooking and a closet full of towels for hot tubbers. After a day playing in the snow at Cooper Spur, it was soooooooo nice to get back to the hot tub in the evening. It's hard to beat the location--right in between a grocery store and downtown Hood River, with a view of the Columbia below. This is a great location for a family gathering or a retreat for a group of friends who want to be close to the town amenities of Hood River and the fun of the Gorge and the mountain.
Sharon O.Sep 2015
Great house for our needs. The inside space was very comfortable, really appreciated the washer and dryer and that it was pet friendly. The outside of the home really needed attention but overall we really enjoyed our stay, fairly close to downtown.
Thank you so much for sharing your feedback! We always appreciate hearing from our guests so that we can learn more about some of the highlights of your stay, as well as any feedback you may have that is vital to our making improvements. We will share this information with our local team and look forward to having you stay with us again!
Huddy F.Jun 2015
All the guests who I arranged to stay in the house were very impressed with the accommodation. It was a great spot and we all enjoyed our time. I'd recommend it to anyone
Jennifer M.May 2015
We loved being able to walk downtown and the two levels of the home were awesome! We will definitely be back!!!
Thank you for this excellent review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and can't wait to have you stay with us again!
Jennifer W.Apr 2015
We had a great time in Hood River and really appreciate that you rented to us with our dogs. The house had a great view. The view of the gorge, fireplace and hot tub are nice features of this home. There are some things that need a little work around the house, but overall we had a very enjoyable stay!
