Vacation Rentals are properties that can be rented a minimum of 2 nights or longer. Many areas of the Gorge require a short term rental license for this kind of short stay rental. Reservations less than 30 days also require state and county lodging tax to be paid monthly. All utilities, internet, grounds and maintenance are included in the nightly rate.
These homes can be booked online for stays less than 30 days. Vacation homes rented for longer than 30 days must be booked by phone and follow the 30 Day+ process.
30 Day+ Rental properties do not require a license and are rented with a lodging contract. There is no lodging tax required to be paid by guests. These stays must be booked by phone and require a 100% month rate deposit. All utilities, internet, grounds and maintenance are included.
Unfurnished Leased Homes require a lease, typically 6 months to a year. Utilities, internet, grounds and cleaning are a tenant responsibility unless noted by the owners. Appliances may or may not be furnished.
