A quiet, relaxing B&B with breathtaking views, romantic rooms, and warm, welcoming hosts. It's off the beaten path, up a winding road that made us wonder for a minute if we were lost, but the reward was definitely worth it! The bed was so comfortable, we wished we could take it home with us. The view from our window was stunning. The couple who own the B&B are warm and friendly, and their personal touch is on everything. Breakfast was delicious, and they're willing to accommodate food sensitivities. All the major attractions of the gorge are just a short drive away. WiFi was spotty, but we were there to get away, anyway. We will definitely be back and would recommend it to anyone.
The views from our room were breath-taking! Bed was very comfortable and place was very clean! Coffee maker and fridge in the room were nice. Many B&B's we have stayed at don't have them. The owners are very friendly and helpful with tourist advice! Breakfast was excellent too! If we are back in the area would for sure stay there again!
My husband and I recently just took a "mini moon" to Husum and it was everything we needed. Only having 2 days we searched for something close but still off the beaten path. The area is absolutely gorgeous. You end your journey to the house down a winding road up to the top of a hill where you are far away from the noise and traffic. You are greeted with spectacular views of the Mt. Hood and the countryside. There is a ton of space to relax on the lawn and watch the sunset. The animals are an extra bonus and are very well cared for with lots of room to roam. Carol & Jerry are delightful to talk too and were always there if we needed them. The breakfast is homemade goodness that sets you right for the day!! Loved this place and will definitely return. Thank you!
We stayed for one night after attending a wedding in Lyle, Washington. It was dark when we arrived. The next morning we woke up to an amazing view, great hospitality and a home cooked breakfast. Sweet.
A bit off the beaten track...a long drive on a dirt road got me there. But beautiful rooms on a gorgeous spot overlooking a nearby mountain. A great place to clear your head and relax. Rooms very clean and beautifully decorated. Lovely, large old wood house on a farm. (If you have kids, they'll love the animals)
We were very impressed with the hospitality and customer service of the innkeepers. Breakfast was great and the tour of the working farm was a huge family hit. The views from this property are amazing. I can see why many weddings take place here!
A bit off the beaten path but surprisingly beautiful! Bed was comfy, room clean but gorgeous view obstructed from room by trees needing a trim and view from hot tub too. Minor issues for a fabulous night! No disappointment.
It's worth the trek over gravel roads to arrive at this secluded sanctuary with an unobstructed, drop-dead view of Mt Hood! Jerry and Carol are delightful and the added plus of bunnies, hens, sheep, a horse, an alpaca, a dog and a cat was most delightful. Stayed in the top floor room with a view of the Mountains out one side and the beautiful water fall out the other. Can't wait to go back in the fall.
The room was perfect and had an amazing view of the valley and mountain, and the farm was so much fun to walk around. The best part were the delicious homemade breakfasts each morning, the orange croissant french toast was incredible, as was the chicken apple sausage.
I chose this B&B because it was close to the white water rafting outfitters for White Salmon River, I could tell it was nice from their web site, but it exceeded my expectations on many levels. The entire house and our room were wonderfully designed for beauty and comfort. The mountain views from our room were breathtaking--can easily see Mt Adams. The gardens were delightfully designed and a real pleasure to walk around and explore. The breakfast was unique, delicious, and satisfying. Also,my daughter and I really enjoyed the special treat of a selection of bath salts.
My wife and I came here on a mini-honeymoon following a very hectic pre- and post-wedding schedule. Jerry and Carol were excellent and very helpful hosts. The grounds are a marvel of beauty and landscaping, with the soothing sounds of a waterfall right outside our room (we booked the "Ashley" room - has a separate private bath with an awesome clawfoot tub!). The view of the valley from Husum Highlands is just stunning. No better word to describe it, really. You have to go out into the hills a ways to get to Husum Highlands, but the roads are hardpacked and in excellent condition - no 4-wheel drive necessary or anything. The property is well-maintained and in beautiful condition, with lots of animals to befriend if you so wish (dog, cat, chickens, bunnies, sheep and even Dolly the Llama!). HH B&B is about 20 minutes from Hood River, White Salmon, or Bingen. TONS of stuff to do between those three places. As for the breakfast - FANTASTIC! Jerry is quite the cook. Would gladly recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away from it all, but still have a lot of fun options close by.
Jerry & Carol were kind & friendly and gave very helpful advice about things to see. The room was lovely, the food very good. And the view of Mt Hood out the window was breathtaking! It's a bit of a trip up the unimproved road but worth it. chickens, rabbits and sheep add to the farm atmosphere.
We had a wonderful time on our recent stay at Husum Highlands B&B. We loved that it was way out in the country, peaceful, and so quiet. Jerry and Carol are kind and knowledgable of the area! We would recommend others to stay here!
We had a wonderful stay at Husum Highlands. The owners are wonderful and the property is beautiful. It surprised us a bit that it was farther from Hood River than we expected it to be and the road is gravel much of the way. However we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to find the beautiful setting.
Jerry really makes this place go! He's so friendly and welcoming, and his cooking is incredible. We enjoyed our stay...beautiful, peaceful, wonderful. Unfortunately, apart from Jerry, the other people working at Husum Highlands were unfriendly and borderline rude...talk about your cold/awkward interactions. All in all...this is a great place. Again, Jerry is the man! We'll be going back.
My wife and I spent two nights in a row here at the Husum Highlands B&B in July 2012, and we had a very nice time. The owner was very friendly, our room was quaint, nicely decorated, and very clean. The property that the Husum Highlands is on is beyond beautiful, very isolated out in the country (more on this in a sec), with gorgeous views of the valley and of Mt. Hood off in the distance. This would be a great place for a wedding, the view was truly stunning. The only negative -- and it might be a positive for many -- was that Husum is very far out into the country (about 30 minutes north of the Columbia gorge) and the Highland B&B is another 10 minutes beyond the town, up a windy road and then the final 1 1/2 miles of the road aren't even paved! It was a gravel road, no problem for our car, but some might find this off-putting. The nearest restaurants are 10-20 minute drives away, and there aren't too many options. But if isolation, quiet and serenity are what you are looking for, great! Also, one last thing, the included breakfast was nice, an omelette, fresh fruit & juice, bread... better than you get at a typical hotel's "continental breakfast", but the food itself was very blah and honestly below average. The B&B is probably a bit over-priced for what you get. But we did enjoy our stay here, and the stars were beautiful at night.
We spent one night here on August 17, 2012. The hosts were very helpful and accomodating. Rooms and furnishings are very comfortable. The home is a working farm and several miles from either Trout Lake or White Salmon up in the hills surrounded by beautiful countryside. I recommend this B&B.
