The community of Mosier has both an interesting history and a proximity to a myriad of outdoor activities going for it. From your own private Mosier vacation rental, you'll be able to discover all that makes this little town on the Columbia River something special! From cycling paths to windsurfing, Mosier offers world-class recreation and adventure, along with a delightful small-town charm that makes it a wonderful option for a Columbia River Gorge vacation rental. Mosier itself offers a handful of local businesses to meet travelers' most urgent needs - stop by 10 Speed Coffee for a morning cup, or head to Thirsty Woman Pub after a day's hike for a more potent kind of brew. There's also a small market for groceries. If you'd like a little more variety, you'll find that breweries, fine dining, and cafes abound in nearby Hood River, just seven quick miles down the highway. If you prefer to pedal your way to dinner, you're in luck. A pedestrian and bicycle route passes through the historic Mosier Twin Tunnels State Park, traveling through two historic tunnels along the Columbia River Scenic Highway just west of town. This cycling path is a must-ride attraction for bikers - and if you're looking for more challenging trails, stop in one of the cycle shops and ask for a map of the nearby Post Canyon single-track area! From your Mosier vacation rental, visit one of the many orchards in the area and pick your own world-renowned pears and apples. Or, check out one of the 19 wineries in the area and experience the sun-soaked, Columbia Gorge grape. In the winter, Mt. Hood Meadows offers alpine skiing and snowboarding, 40 miles up the mountain. If you're seeking a Columbia Gorge vacation rental that's convenient to recreation - but not too touristy - a Mosier vacation home may be the perfect choice!
