The SpaceNewly remodeled home with green principles, including solar: One story 2 Bedroom / 2 Bathroom 1200 sft home with attached double car garage in the Hood River Heights suburban neighborhood on a quiet street. New wool carpet and bamboo floors, all stainless steel appliances, solar panels and large patio in private, fenced back yard with native plants and hot tub.
I have an electric car, which I charge with my solar electricity and I am happy to answer questions about the car!
The house has central AC and forced air gas heat and the street is quickly plowed in winter.
It is being cleaned professionally every month.
I do not have a TV.

I have a long term partner and we consciously choose to live in separate homes. This means, sometimes I work from my home office, often I get home late, sometimes my partner will visit, sometimes I will be home by myself and sometimes I will not be home. You will receive your own door code.
I am happy to connect but always respect your privacy. I usually hang out in my room if I'm home so the kitchen and living room are available for my guests.
I will be available for any tips or questions by phone, text or email before and during your stay!
I am looking to share my home with health conscious outdoor enthusiasts, who are independent and appreciate being able to share my home. I have tried to anticipate your needs and hope you will enjoy your stay! The NeighborhoodA Dutch Brother's Coffee drive through is in walking distance as well as the Rosaures grocery store and shopping complex, 10 Speed coffee shop and various restaurants and shops.
The home is also close to the Indian Creek trail system, which is great for a quick trail run right from the door.
Driving distance: 3 min to Hood River Sports Club and Rosaures, 5 min to down town (many restaurants, shops and live music) and the weekly Farmer's Market on Saturdays, 9-1 or the large public swimming pool, 10 min drive to Post Canyon or the Event site, 30 min drive West to Stevenson, WA or East to The Dalles, OR, 40 min South to Teacup lake XC ski trail system, 45 min South to Hood River Meadows Ski Resort and 60 min to Timberline Ski Resort, 60 min West to Portland and to the airport. Getting AroundIt is important that you have a car, since there is no public transport and the local hills don't lend themselves to bike commuting very well – unless you are a bike traveler!
