Located in the 1st National Scenic Area, the Columbia River Gorge is a must see & stay for anyone who has the time to come & explore.

We offer Columbia River and Town views, and are located in Hood River,"Historic District." The historic name is the Bradford House, but we go by Doves Pet Friendly Vacation Rentals.

It's a quaintly updated 1890's Victorian with 5 individual Boutique Apartments. (the total of 20 guests would be if ALL 5 apartments are available, which does not happen very often, our repeat bookings decreases the odds of this happening), but upon occasion the planets align for this opportunity to house wedding parties & wedding guests.

We offer flexible schedules. 3 nite minimums, and weekly, monthly or Extended Stay pricing to match with your needs. The rates fluctuate with the time of year and always are based on how many guests, length of stay and the unit booked, as each is totally different from the other. Most pets are welcome, but only clean & quiet are allowed to stay.

Mt Hood is a 30 mins drive, and It's only 2 Blocks to downtown, so it a quick walk to The Naked Winery or many of the numerous wine tasting rooms & Full Sail or Double Mountain among the many breweries here. Dining,along with sports and wind shops & art galleries are a short walk away.

5 Completely different, self-contained, separate Pet Friendly, Clean Apartments; some with high ceilings, wood floors & all with WIFI/cable TV, plus a Shaded patio/picnic area with Gas BBQ, Coin-op laundry, secure storage for golf clubs, kayaks, boards, bikes, camping gear & a place to rinse your wet suits & dry your sails.

Our business model has changed over the years and we do provide Seasonal Housing Fall-Winter-Spring housing, that ends when the Summer season begins.

Email your information and needs, please provide a phone number and best time to contact for a speedy response. Corporate, seasonal and extended stay are available as vacancies permit.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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
