When you want a little luxury in your Columbia Gorge vacation, these cliffside villas and suites are an ideal option. They range from small to large: families may be interested in the Carriage House, which sleeps four counting the sleeper sofa, the two-bedroom Penthouse, Villa, or Pinnacle Suite (one king, one queen), or a luxuriously spacious three-bedroom Penthouse/Villa/Pinnacle, which all sleep up to six and boast three fireplaces, a full gourmet kitchen, a private balcony, and other luxurious amenities (but, be warned — they come with a price tag to match).
Whichever unit you select, you’ll enjoy high-quality bedding, linens, and towels, Aveda bath products, complimentary Wi-Fi, at least one fireplace, a balcony, and more touches to make your stay amazing. Rollaway beds and pack&plays are available if your family needs additional sleeping options. Most rooms have panoramic views from which you can admire mountains, valleys, cliffs, forests, or the river. Outdoors, a short garden path leads you to a beautiful waterfall. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, and downtown Hood River is only one mile away.

Located right on the river, these are privately owned condo's that are rented out when the owners aren't using them. Coffee makers in the room.
Very well maintained, and the location makes it easy to find. Numerous places to eat nearby.
We met up with 3 other couples for a reunion and the Penthouse Suite was a great place for us. Beautiful views and plenty of space for us to cook our meals and enjoy each other's company. Our only complaint was it would have been nice to have a foil cutter and an aerator in addition to a better wine opener, especially being that we were in wine country. Also, for the price we paid for the Penthouse, not having a washer and dryer was ridiculous. Would be a good idea to have a more clear set of directions for what to do upon check out. The beauty of the area made up for these little things. Would definitely stay there again.
