Columbia Cliff Villas
An hour outside from Portland lays the majestic Hood River. This national scenic area, which includes the Columbia River Gorge, is home to one of our favorite Luxury Link properties – Columbia Cliff Villas. Surrounded by the snow-capped Mount Hood, this resort offers both romance and adventure.
This time of the year is perfect for travelers looking for a cozy winter getaway. “Right now is a perfect time to enjoy snow-shoeing, wine tasting, and enjoying the beautiful Columbia River,” says Jennifer Gulizia of Columbia Cliff Villas.
The only luxury property in the area, Columbia Cliff Villas boasts standard European rooms as well as extravagant 3 bedroom penthouse suites. All suites have kitchens and fireplaces to cozy up after a long day.
“A favorite activity for our guests is to experience the Columbia Gorge Wine Region, often referred to as a world of wine in 40 miles, this area includes many wine varietals found in France,” says Gulizia.
For travelers who want to experience the Northwest in the summer and test their adventure skills, Guiliza suggests visiting the Hatchery - a world renowned windsurfing spot on the Columbia River Gorge. In addition guests can explore the number of hiking trails or explore downtown Mount Hood.
Winter or Summer Spring or fall, Guiliza says experiencing the Northwest is a must.
