The space

My husband and I called it “The Big Apple” because when we left New York City for Oregon (once upon a very long time ago) we felt we’d really made it. We had achieved the dream, we'd arrived!

A fertile fruit growing area, Hood River County is also known as a year round mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. Its north border is the scenic Columbia River Gorge, summer fun site for world class wind surfing, kite boarding, kayaking, rafting, stand-up paddle boarding, sailing, and fishing. The southern border encompasses Mount Hood where winter fun in the snow includes x-country, down hill, alpine and back country skiing, snowboarding, and snow shoeing. All season fun includes road and mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, micro brews and wine tasting, the springtime fruit Blossom Fest and autumn Harvest Fest.

A really lovely, peaceful escape close to Hood River. Susan is a wonderful host and the "critters" are lots of fun, too.
