Separate From The Main House, August Country Cottage Is A Cozy Retreat With Queen Bed And Full Bath And Kitchen with views of the Organic Vegetable Garden.
The August Country Cottage is a mile from the city limits and away from the bustle of downtown Hood River. The neighborhood is scattered light industrial and the cottage is surrounded by mature Douglas Fir trees creating a country garden oasis. Nearby is the majestic Columbia River Gorge, with renowned wind sports, hiking, wineries , micro and cider breweries, mountain biking, skiing, golfing, kayaking, SUPing, a very good pumptrack, and more. Truly a Northwest Playground!!
The Cottage is 250 sq ft, simply elegant and offers guests a relaxing and wholesome stay. With beautiful amenities and lots of natural light, a screen door allows a connection to outside where you might see quail or pheasant walking through the garden. The chaise lounges and table set provide places to sit and relax, read a book or just take a nap. This place will slow you down.
The Cottage is located on a two acre site of well-manicured gardens and grounds at the end of the driveway. A main house and barn are also on site that provide other guest and owner accommodations and work spaces. These ARE NOT included as part of this VRBO listing. Please respect other guests privacy.
The August Country Cottage welcomes you to see and feel the Gorge!!
