Interaction with Guests
Please contact me by phone or email if you have any questions!
When I’m not working, I’m usually out playing: hiking, snowshoeing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, wine tasting, listening to local music or traveling. If you need help finding something to do, I can point you in the right direction!
Can't give away all the local secrets but definitely check out Pine St Bakery for morning coffee, pastries and piggies! Another fav spot is Volcanic Bottle shop for the beer connoisseur! For a few quick groceries, stop at The Farm Stand for fresh, local organic produce, seafood, and sandwiches.
In the summer, the Thursday night farmer's market is just 3 blocks away!
There is ample free parking in the driveway and on the street. A car is recommended.
My rules are pretty simple, treat my house as you would your favorite relative's. No smoking anywhere on the property. This is a residential neighborhood so please no parties or loud music after 10pm. Up to 2 well-behaved dogs are allowed for $20/night pet fee. Please enter them as an additional guest when booking. Unauthorized dog will result in forfeit of security deposit. The yard is fully fenced front and back though the fence in the front has large grating that a cat can slip through easily so small dogs will not be contained. Please keep pets off the furniture!
Front entry with slate tile floor, has closet and coat rack to stash wet boots and jackets
A wonderful, serene getaway with a terrific view from the backyard. It was the perfect launching pad for exploring Hood River. The bedroom was incredibly quiet, I haven't slept so soundly for a long time! It was great walking through the quaint neighborhoods, and there are some good local dining options just a few blocks away. Would highly recommend.
"Cozy Spot with a Mountain View" was perfect for my trip to Hood River for a friend's wedding. The house and room were clean, inviting and quiet. Dana left me a key b/c she knew she'd be out, and though we didn't see much of each other over the wknd, I felt at ease and welcome in her space. She gave me a great brunch recommendation and the Mt. Adams view from the back deck/garden is spectacular! Thanks for lovely, down-to-earth place to land in Hood River. Recommend!
Dana's place was exactly as advertised. The room and bathroom were clean and tidy and the bed was really comfortable! Great views with easy access to downtown Hood River and her neighborhood shops. I would stay there again!
Dana was a great host. We had a very pleasant stay and enjoyed the accommodations. Her place was exactly as it was described. There were beautiful mountain views from the backyard. She made us feel at home and gave us full access to her home. We'd definitely stay here again.
I had an incredibly relaxing stay in Hood River. Dana's quiet, relaxed way helps to rest and recharge the batteries. She gave me all information to enjoy my time in Hood River. The house is idyllic - rather small, but very cozy and surrounded by a lovely garden. My room was very spacious and had a large, very comfortable bed. I was particularly pleased to have been invited to a barbecue. I would highly recommend a trip to Hood River and a stay in Dana's house.
We stayed with Dana and Madison over the weekend and we could not have asked for a better house and host. Dana was amazing. The view of Mt. Adams from the backyard wasn't a sore sight either!
Dana was awesome, and we had a great time staying at her convenient, cute, and cozy home. This was a great place to stay!
About the Host, Dana
I moved to Hood River 4 years ago after finishing grad school at Oregon State. I grew up in Madison, WI and went to school at Colorado State. I studied natural resources because I love the outdoors; hiking, camping, snowboarding and cross country are my favorite activities. I've traveled quite a bit in the Western US, mostly checking out ski towns, wine growing areas and hot springs. When I travel, I like to get off the beaten path and live like a local. I just got back from a 2 month trip to France where I tasted amazing wines, did a little work trade for a small organic winery and a bnb, and ate the most amazing food! I stayed with some wonderful airbnb hosts over there, as well as hostels, hotels and homes. I loved every minute of it! My other favorite travel experiences are my study abroad trip to New Zealand and a trip to Ecuador to volunteer on a Bioreserve.
When I'm at home, I like to play in the yard, I have a big garden in the summer and lots of plants and projects that always keep me busy. I love to cook with fresh, local foods and often have dinner parties for my friends. I work in the wine biz so my wine cellar is well stocked and wine tasting is a frequent activity. I also love to go out dancing when there is a good band in town.
I am a bit of an urban homesteader; I make my own soap, laundry detergent, dish soap, spice blends, teas, dog food, wine, vinegar, and I can or freeze tons of garden produce.
When people stay at the house, they often comment on how relaxing it is. I like the slow life, enjoying the coziness of the fireplace, beautiful view, good food and good friends. I hope you'll enjoy it too!

A hidden gem...a nursery and garden shop with a fabulous cafe serving breakfast and lunch. My fav is to sit in the giant greenhouse surrounded by plants in the middle of winter. Great coffee!
