My wife and I stayed here two nights in April, 2013 and had a very mixed experience. The innkeeper was wonderful and did a great job making us feel welcome, and did her best to resolve the problems we had. Here's the scoop: the facility is located in the tiny town of Carson which is centrally located to explore the Columbia Gorge. Upon arrival we were a bit disappointed to discover that the cabins are situated in the middle of town, not the more secluded location we were hoping for. We were checked in to our cabin, but we discovered to our dismay that the bedsheets and pillows were literally covered with pet hair. Not just a little, but A LOT. It was obvious that the sheets had not been changed by housekeeping since the last guest. We called the innkeeper and she was very apologetic, and she immediately upgraded us to another cabin. This one was clean, but a bit shoddy, with stains on the carpet. chipped paint on the furniture, and bag of trash left by a previous guest in the closet. It wasn't terrible, but for a place billed as a "luxury" cabin it was disappointing. However, the bed was very comfortable and the Jacuzzi tub was wonderful. Breakfasts were good, and the grounds were lovely, so we decided to overlook the inconsistencies. However, I would not stay here again unless they dropped the price significantly and I can't recommend it to other travelers. There are many other better options for the price in the area.

We came here with friends for a New Years celebration. We both had our own cabins side by side, which was nice so we could be together, but not have to share a room. It was a wonderful experience. The Cabins were absolutely gorgeous, the owners obviously thought of every detail to make a stay comfortable and then some, we even had complimentary snacks and drinks. The grounds were beautiful too. A lot of attention has been put into the landscaping to even make the dead of winter look beautiful.
On New years day it was warm enough for us to take our mimosas to the lookout point on the top of the property where there is a stunning view of the Gorge.
Our friends that we came with were return guests of Carson Ridge and they recommended that we come along with them for this trip and we are sure glad we did. We loved it and we will now be return guests as well.
I would recommend this resort as both a place for romance and as a place for friends to get together.

Room Tip: The new cabins have stunning views of the gorge. I think they are called the Mt Hood, Mt Saint Hele...

Stayed in the Mt Hood cabin. The tub is fantastic as is the shower. Delivered breakfast? Unheard of....a most wonderful amenity and delicious to boot! The bed....most comfortable we have ever slept in on vacation. The grounds are simply beautiful, relaxing and most enjoyable to walk around. The cabins are quite close together, as other reviewers have said, but are still very private. You can sit on your deck and not see your neighbor due to privacy walls. Everything is beautiful inside and out.....and Staci the Innkeeper is awesome! Highly recommend.

My husband and I stayed at Carson Ridge in the fall and the weather was spectacular. We enjoyed watching the kite boarders and the endless trails available. The innkeepers were great and did a wonderful job answering questions about the area. The breakfast was spectacular and every morning they provided something new and fresh. The only negative was the location. There was no road noise or anything that could be heard from the cabins, but there is really nothing to see or do in the tiny town of Carson. We spent the majority of our time driving to Hood River which was only 25 miles away.

We have been to Carson Ridge Private Luxury Cabins many times before and it continues to be one of our favorite B&B's. The new innkeeper, Staci, was fantastic, from the time we made our reservation to the time we said good bye. The cabin was wonderful, the breakfast was outstanding and the tips on places to go were spot on. Thanks for another wonderful stay. We'll be back.

My husband and I recetly returned from a fantastic stay (April 5-7 2013) Our cabin was every bit as luxious as defined by broshure and the website. Every imaginable luxurious detail was
provided within our quaint cabin. The cabins are architectually situated for one to have privacy from others and other cabins. The lovely and well planned grounds were beautiful even through the intense spring rain! We have stayed many, many places along the Columbia River Gorge and have been consistently disappointed that these hotels or B&B's did not provide the great luxurious, private, and positive experiences they advertised. A few miles above the River, is Carson Ridge Private Luxory Cabins, it DID give us this wonderful experience in such that I will never stay anywhere else when traveling to The Columbia River Gorge! The Innkeeper Stacy was truly the icing of the cake! She cares very deeply for her "home" Carson Ridge Cabins-and went above and beyond to make our stay very memorable in so many nurturing
and pleaurable ways. Her food was fantastic too! Many thanks to you Stacy and your staff for
reigniting that pleasure that has been missing from other retreats to the Columbia River area.

Room Tip: All of the cabins are luxurious and private. I can't wait to stay in any other one on my next t...

We could not believe our eyes as we pulled up to these " luxury" cabins! It looked like a bunch of garden sheds lined up , only a few feet apart from each other, looking out at a what looked like unmowed lawn. We looked inside to see they were marginal, nothing like the 267.00 price point they wanted, more like what I would imagine about 110. Rate. I am a travel agent, and it was so obvious these cabins were not in the caliber they were charging for. It reminded me of a glorified trailer park, with barrel fountains and all. We left, first time we have ever done this, still fighting to get our money back.

We take our luxury cabin status quite serious and pride ourselves on achieving and maintaining pinnacle ratings with Select Registry and the Diamond Collection with Bed and Breakfast.com - the top two industry inspection organizations. Our cabins sit nestled on the edge of a beautiful, natural-grass and flower meadow which is just now beginning to show the signs of spring. In just a couple of weeks the meadow will be alive with indigenous flowers and grasses that are truly spectacular! Our natural setting is designed to be tranquil and peaceful without a lot of fuss. We are a unique property looking to spoil our guests with hospitality, attention to detail and a quiet place to relax. I am so sorry you were not happy and we have been doing everything possible to make sure the situation is rectified swiftly.
