Hood River is located on Interstate 84 in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge less than one hour east of Portland and its international airport.
The Columbia Gorge is a federally designated as a National Scenic Area and offers an incredible array of activities, including world renowned windsurfing, kite-boarding, stand-up paddling, mountain and road biking, white water kayaking and rafting, hiking, fishing, golf and tennis. Nearby Mt. Hood offers year-round skiing and snowboarding. Sightseeing, orchard fruit stands, local brewpubs and wine tasting are all close by to our Hood River location.
Pat and Ann, your hosts
Pat, bought the classic 1912 Craftsman home in August 1984. He was working in the windsurfing business during the very early days of the Gorge. The Gorge View Bed & Breakfast was opened on Memorial Day of 1985 as a seasonal business.
Pat and Ann made Hood River their permanent home in 1991 and raised their family here. Both are active in their community and proud of the wonderful recreation and sites the Gorge has to offer.
Both Pat and Ann are avid Gorge athletes participating in windsurfing, biking, and hiking the area. They’ll be happy to help you plan your sporting and sightseeing activities during your visit.
