One bedroom w/full futon and desk available, full-access to house, internet included. Cell phone reception is good; I have close access to the I-84 freeway and the Columbia River. Free-thinkers (just it) most welcome. :)
I live in a rustic 2BR ranch house, downtown Mosier (5 miles east of Hood River). It's beautiful here, with world-class biking, hiking, windsurfing, kiteboarding, etc.. I am only 1 hour from Portland, 40 minutes from Mt. Hood Meadows, and 15 minutes from The Dalles. My home is clean but definitely rustic (if you don't fully understand this word, just it). It is basically one of the last "surf shacks" in the Gorge. The beach is a 10-minute walk from my house.
My cat behaves like a dog and is quite friendly. He is generally not allowed into the guest bedroom (unless you want him there). I clean out his litter box daily.
What's weird about this house (which WAS the old Mosier motel manager's house) is the two bedrooms adjoin each other. In other words, they share a wall. I have discrete access to the outside via my bedroom's own door, so I don't need to pass through the guest bedroom to get to the rest of the house. If your bedroom door is shut, I will not pass. However, if it's hot and the AC (located in the guest room) is running, I gotta have the adjoining door cracked open so my bedroom stays cool enough for sleeping. Some Americans have trouble with this situation. I don't.
I recently had a new shower case installed around the tub/shower. What an improvement! It still needs paint though.
My home is non-smoking; this includes the stoop because otherwise smoke will get sucked into the house due to pressure differentials created by wind, etc.. Also, we have a serious burn ban in effect here. So please be conscious of your fires (including smoking and butts, which cause many wildfires) which technically are not allowed outside at all. Thank you.
Full access to the kitchen, bathroom, and storage is granted.
Interazione con gli ospiti
I think I'm friendly, but it depends how busy I am and what the weather is doing. My free time involves work, weather, recreation, surf and garden projects, etc. I enjoy sharing breakfast, leading a short tour of Mosier, or simply giving some local tour advice.
Incidentally, I do not believe in pandering; I see it as a form of dishonesty. So, if you ask for my opinion, I will give it to you...whether it matches your opinion or not. Disagreement is OK and can be a sign of respect and the segway to learning and growth. Disagreement is not a sin or crime.
Altre cose da evidenziare
My home is rustic but clean. It's not a luxury vacation home. You may find that in Hood River or even someplace else in Mosier and for much more $. On the bright side, I am right in the middle of biking, hiking, windsurfing, kiting, SUP, etc. Bring your bike!
Absolutely no smoking, including on the stoop (where convection sucks smoke into the house).
Pet negotiable. I've had dogs stay. I like dogs. Yours must not try to kill my cat OR attack my neighbor's chickens. In other words, please control and supervise your dog and do not let it run loose anywhere while you are here. There is a schoolyard next door. Please treat your dog as if it were a 3yo child. This is for everyone's safety consideration. I believe this is common sense, and you may think it's not necessary to state. But history has proven that it is necessary for me to spell out clearly and specifically. Finally, if your dog likes to sleep on the bed with you, please bring along your dog's favorite clean blanket on which to sleep. It's difficult and very time-consuming to try and get out all the dog fur that gets stuck in the bedding.
I have a large secure storage space that you may use for bikes, etc..
Quiet time is after 11pm and before 7am.

I love the Gorge and most of what it has to offer. This includes windsurfing, snowboarding, hiking, biking, xc-skiing, hunting mushrooms, stalking wildlife, etc. I have an awesome cat who acts like a dog.
I am very open-minded, but experience has shown that religious fanatics can be really annoying and even aggressive sometimes due to generalized intolerance (especially of disagreement). If you are deeply religious yet somehow miraculously able to tolerate disagreement, then you are welcome.
