I have had multiple bed and breakfast experiences in this country and elsewhere, but I'm sure I have never enjoyed one any more than the three nights I spent at Seven Oaks B & B in Hood River, Oregon.
The house itself truly feels like a home from the past, graced with lovely vintage items and immaculately maintained. The owner/manager is Linda, a delightful, bright, extremely interesting and funny woman who cooks a MEAN breakfast that will last you all day! The food was terrific and the presentation first class.
This secluded spot of heaven almost exists in a vacuum. It is surrounded by some industrial properties but hidden away behind wonderful trees (seven oak trees, of course, plus others) and the only sounds I heard were some birds and the water sprinklers keeping the lush vegetable and flower gardens damp. And I can't neglect to mention the drop-dead view of Mt. Hood from the bedroom window.
I agree with the reviews...I would never stay anywhere else if we return to Hood River and I might suggest that that would be your feeling, too, if you booked this charming place!
