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.
