The house is an older home with great character nestled just downriver from Husum falls. You can see Husum Falls from outside the upper window. It is well stocked and a great property. The sound of the river is nice and the fireplace makes a cozy place to relax. Everything is in great working condition and the owner is very accommodating and responsive. I would recommend this property. It is close to WS, super close to the river for the BZ to Husum kayak run and an easy drive to all the trails around.

We found the house to be perfect for our needs (group of 6 friends on retreat). For an 'old' house, it was surprisingly spotless. They have LOTS more kitchen tools and implements than any other airB&B or VRBO that we have stayed in...very handy with 6 of us taking turns cooking. We were surprised to find it SO close to the river (maybe I didn't read the listing carefully enough)--watching kayakers was great fun! Refreshing and relaxing, 'away from it all' spot.

We had a delightful stay. The house is so light and airy and fit my family, my sister's family and my parents perfectly. We enjoyed watching the river rafters pass by and some even jumped from the bridge. I wish we could have stayed longer because I had not seen that part of Washington before and it is beautiful. We felt like we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay again! Thank you.

Our time there was awesome - sure wish we could have had a few more days! It is a beautiful property and the house was great - a very comfortable, inviting space.

Everything was wonderful!! We very much enjoyed our stay there. It seemed like we had everything we needed, lovely clean bedding and facilities. We will definitely make use of the house again if we have family in town again.

The house was a DREAM. I wanted to move my things in and never leave. My only complaint is that with all the wedding events, I didnt get to spend as much time at the house as I wanted! I hope to stay in the house again. You have a magical place and we loved it. Jealous of whoever gets to start their stay next!

How wonderful our stay was! We absolutely loved the house... it was perfect for the six of us. Very cozy and relaxing, just what we all needed. Thank you very much for sharing your home with us, and for all the great recommendations!

The Husum House is located on the beautiful White Salmon River, and right across the street from several rafting companies. We used Wet Planet and had a great white water rafting adventure. Husum is just far enough away from everything to make you feel like you're out in the country, but White Salmon is closeby and Hood River just a bit further. Husum House has just about any amenity you would want. It seems that everyone who stays there leaves something behind and it's a nice tradition. One of the most relaxing things we did was sit on the back porch in the evenings and watch and listen to the river. It's fun to watch the rafting groups take their rafts out right around the corner. Matt has loads of brochures on the area and a really nice guidebook with suggestions on what to do. We did the Fruit Loop, Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood and the nearby alpine slide, rafting, and a super hike called the Sleeping Beauty Trail which is mentioned in the Mt. Adams hiking guide at the house. Of course there are scads of wineries, but we'd suggest Wind River, just two miles or so from the house. As the guidebook mentions, tell Joel that you're staying at Matt's House and you'll find him very hospitable. The entire area is beautiful and we hope to go back again one day and we'll definitely stay at the Husum House.

Thank you for having such a wonderful home! We had a simply lovely time and will be back for sure!! You’ve renovated the house so well, the bed was very comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, all in all a great stay. Thank you so much and we will be in touch for our next visit!"

The house was perfect. We had so much fun laying around in front of the fire, exploring the river, and watching Elf. I made my mom and cousin hike dog mountain and it nearly killed them but we enjoyed it all the same. I have already recommended your place to others and will continue to do so. Thanks again,

We LOVED the house. I came with my husband and two teenage kids (15 and 17), and two dogs. Amazingly the tv wasn't turned on once!!!! My kids played chess, read, played board games, explored the river . . . . what a gift to not have the tv on once all weekend. The beds were super comfy. The kitchen was so well-stocked that it made it easy to cook and enjoy family meals. And, after the half-marathon, it was a wonderful place to come back to clean up, and relax.

In the many years I have traveled, I have been in so many vacation rentals. The Husum House was the most beautiful and most enjoyable I have ever stayed in. It is such a beautiful and bright house and it's evident that the owners geniunely love it. The clean crisp air, the beautiful Husum River nearby, the wonderful comfortable beds, blackberries and plums, the cleanliness and organization of this house were it's highlights. It's a difficult house to leave because it's so lovely and we felt so at home in it. Staying in Husum, WA was perfect as it wasn't far from Hood River and still in a quiet place. My parents and entire family loved our stay here and hopefully we will return soon. Thank you for everything Matt and Pam!

A major highlight of the visit was our stay in the Husum House! The cottage was impeccably clean, very well organized and a warm and cozy atmosphere;. The kitchen is spacious and had all the necessary pots, pans, plates, and dishes for fixing meals and the beds and sleeping quarters were so comfortable. Upon your suggestion we went to Everybody's Brewing. They served awesome food and had a selection of great beers on tap. If they had this place in my neighborhood I would go there all the time.

The Husum House is the perfect retreat and you can still go out to a local bar and get excellent food and beer after a long day of playing outside. We want to come back!

Thank you Matt and Pam for an incredible stay!!

We had a great time at your house, Matt. Last night, our 2 year old said, "I want to go to the yellow house." I love to be able to "get away" without having to drive for hours.

Thanks for a great stay

I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate you opening your house to us this weekend! We all had a wonderful time. The house and property are just stunning!...so much so that we are looking for property in the area. Grandma wants to move there instead of her retirement home.

Thanks again,

We had a FANTASTIC time at your house. It was perfect for us though way more room than we needed; perhaps we'll come back sometime with more people. What a lot of space, and what lovely space!

We explored parts of the Gorge that neither of us had ever been too, so that was a real treat, and we want to do more of that.

Here are some of the many things we appreciated:

Tasteful comfy furnishings, including lots of great towels. Sound system(s). Good lighting! Wonderful kitchen with lots of great ingredients one never finds in a condo or time share! Beautiful land, wonderful water. Quiet street. Access to so many natural wonders! Lots of wood and a very efficient effective woodburning stove. That it was a "real home" not a cookie cutter place.

The white lilacs are just coming and fragrant, and the rhody is getting ready, as are the irises. We did half of the wagon trail hike; gorgeous yellow flower bushes, with more just getting ready to pop all over the hillside; a few lupines and many more to come. We took old hwy 30 from The Dalles to Mosier and took the first hike off of that, handled by the Nature Conservancy; oh, that was fantastic. We had great meals at Solstice in Bingen and Celilo in HR. Loved Maryhill Winery and missed the Maryhill Museum closing by 5 minutes; must go back; also need to return to Stonehenge, which I remember seeing about 30 years ago.

We would like to recommend your place to friends, and we hope to return ourselves. Thank you again SO much for making your place available, with such generosity and trust!

We had a wonderful wedding in Trout Lake. Rafting and going over the Husum Falls were highlights. Husum House worked well for us. We really enjoyed the deck.

We had a very pleasant stay with lots of hikes near Adams. We enjoyed being in a house right on the river.

Just wanted to let you know that we are back from the house and had a terrific time. As I said in the guest book, my husband was particularly impressed by your obvious appreciation of wine ('77 port!) and the hops growing in your yard---he has several here at the house that are about as far along as yours!

On your recommendation we checked out Solstice Cafe (John and Regina say hi), Everybody's Brewing, and Wind River winery (owner was out of town but we had a nice chat with the summer intern), among lots of other outings. It was a lovely week :)

Thanks again,

Mary and AJ, Ian, Lizzie and Emma Portland, OR – July 2009

ps--- if you can, get more pictures of house interior for your website--the ones you have do not do the place justice!

"Wonderful!"

"We stayed at Husum House for one weekend in June (09) and absolutely fell in love. It's a great house with so much character. The rooms are clean and cozy and the setting is perfect for a relaxing getaway. Husum is nothing but a few roads in size and the house sits on a perfect spot of the river. Hood River, OR, a wonderful place to eat, drink, shop, and engage in nightlife, is just 15 minutes away so you truly do have the best of both worlds. In the summer we were able to hike nearby (Sleeping Beauty is a tough one but wholly worth it in the end!), go whitewater rafting (Wetplanet is just across the street!), and sun on the deck, but I'd imagine the winter would allow for a similar amount of nearby activities including snowshoeing and Xcountry skiing.

Matt is incredibly friendly and accommodating. He is very quick to respond, easy to communicate with, and very hospitable. We look forward to another visit!"
