We chose the Hood River BnB online because of its location within walking distance of nearly every restaurant, brewpub, and attraction in Hood River, but what will bring us back here are the friendly hosts, great breakfasts, and attractive accommodations.
In designing and operating their B and B, Jane and Jim thought carefully about what guests would want and need. The beds and linens are of high quality, the breakfasts are superb, and their knowledge of what's worth seeing and doing in the Columbia Gorge area is comprehensive. The dining area and each guest room have a pleasant view of the Columbia River and the mountains on the other shore in Washington State.
The house is spacious and comfortable, and much of the main floor is open to guests (but not the kitchen because of health department regulations). Periodicals, local guidebooks, and novels abound, and a TV/DVD, computer, and fridge are also available for guests' use. The wi-fi is lightning fast (Jim is a computer professional) and there is adequate off-street parking, and storage space for water and snow sports gear.
The Hood River BnB exemplifies how this type of accommodation can be superior to hotels. We're glad we booked four nights here -- enough time to really settle in and really enjoy this comfortable home base and this interesting town and area. A one-night stay would have been frustratingly short. We're taking away some nice memories, and look forward to returning before long.
