Great place to stay in Hood RIver

My wife and I stayed with our two golden retrievers in an apartment upstairs. We had a view of Mt. Adams and the Columbia River. Karen is very accomodating and helpful and we felt like Hood River residents! Two nice parks a short walk up the hill and the doggies were happy too!

Owner's reply:

Happy to have you stay again anytime! Glad the accommodations, location meet everyone's needs. Hope to see you 4 again!

Comfy and Friendly

We stayed in the smallest apartment in the house, but it had plenty of space for two of us. Staying here was more like staying a friend's house than a rental property: casual, homey, and very laid-back. We had a great time in Hood River, and Karen was exceptionally generous, giving advice for things to do (and not do) that were well-suited to our interests and tastes. We walked away with great memories and a bottle of wonderful home-made pickles shared by a previous guest visiting from France.

Karen Dove

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your kind words, it was a pleasure to provide a comfy environment for you two. So glad the weather and the Hood River experience was all good. Hope to see you again.

Wonderful place in Hood River

This was one of the best places we've stayed in Hood River. The room was adorable and Karen was awesome. We will hopefully be staying here again because we loved it!

Karen Dove

Owner's reply:

WoW - thank's for the big thumbs UP, next time stay a little longer and enjoy all of the apartment's amenities. You are welcome back anytime!

Made our vacation so much better!

This place was perfect! Right in a perfect part of town. We were able to walk to the river, to stores and restaurants. Across the river there was white water rafting and 15min in the other direction there was a place to pick organic cherries. The house was very clean and felt very comfortable. We would gladly stay there again.

Karen Dove

Owner's reply:

You were the perfect guests as was your pooch... hope to see you 3 again, thanks so much for staying.

Excellent Home base for visiting the Gorge

We travel with our 3 Cairn Terriers and so we require a special place to stay and a very special landlady. We were fortunate enough to have found both at Dove House. Karen was so gracious and made us feel welcome. The dogs felt very at home, the room was perfect for us and the view and convenience to town and sightseeing were all that we could have asked for. We would recommend this house/apt. for vacationers' with or without pets. We enjoyed our time and Karen was available for any special needs we had. Sharon,Robert, Bear, Ceylon and LuLu

Owner's reply:

Thank you Sharon, you are very kind! You two and the "kids" were all perfect guests, hope to have you visit again.

Charming Historic Home

My fiancee and I have stayed multiple times in this charming historic home. Karen the owner, is very accommodating and friendly. The location is awesome, only a few blocks to walk into downtown Hood River. The accommodations are well equipped, clean and have a nice view of the river. Karen also has a locked storage area for bikes and wind surfing equipment. We will definitely stay at Karen's place again on our next extended stay in Hood River.

Karen Dove

Owner's reply:

Wonderful people! You have always been delightful guests, each time you've stayed.Thanks for the lovely review, I hope to see you both out this way soon!

Great price, great location

Karen's house was perfect for a week long stay. Clean, everything worked and Karen supplied everything I needed. The location was perfect for walking to and from town (especially after a glass or two of wine!). Karen made everything easy, meeting me and showing me around.

Karen Dove

Owner's reply:

You were the perfect guest, thanks so much for the positive review, hope to see you again before the 2014 Pacific Northwest Plein Air. Loved getting a sneak peek at your work, too!

Grandmas house

Great place to stay. Great views and close to downtown so no need to drive. It reminded me of my grandmothers home. Lots of books and and interesting things decorating the place. Very comfortable.

Karen Dove

Owner's reply:

This was your 2nd or 3rd stay? Thanks for the great review, hope to see you all again (even when there's no bike races ;-)

Wonderfull, charming retreat nestled in the trees and the heart of Hood River...2-3 blocks to restaurants and shops... Lovely view of the river. Karen is a delight and treated us as a guest in her home. Loved it and we'll go back.

Convenient and Quaint

This was a very comfortable place close to the main part of town. It was much better than staying at a hotel. We were with our adult children and dog in two apartments. It was very comfortable and clean. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We had a great family time at gorgeous Hood River.

My husband and I stayed at the Dove aprartments for our 5th Anniv. and it was perfect! It was so close to everything. We were able to walk the town, have some drinks with dinner and walk back safely. The apartment was really well equipt, clean with a great view, there was nothing else we could have asked for.

Home away from home

Dog Friendly Lodging in Great Location!

We were so happy to find in-town lodging while traveling with our dog. Everything in downtown was just a few blocks away from this cute and cozy rental; no need to drive once you've checked in. The apartment was very comfortable and well furnished, and it had a fabulous outdoor patio with a great view. Karen was friendly and easy to work with, and we really appreciated her flexibility in allowing us a one-night stay when there is a usual 2-night minimum. We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful Time at a Great Property

My wife and I stayed here with our two dogs for a bicycle race and had a wonderful time. The owner was very friendly and accommodating, even when we showed up the day before we had originally planned. The property is clean, very near the touristy part of town, and had beautiful views of the Columbia River. The apartment was well described and had no surprises. I will absolutely try to book again if we return next year.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Doves Vacation Rentals has been our choice every summer for the past five years. Nothing beats the location which is walking distance to shops and restaurants or even the river. The furnished apartments provide everything we might need so that we can focus on playing in the sun. And at the end of the day we can always sit outside to barbecue a burger and chat with our neighbours.
Doris & John 2/21/2012
