About Us

We’ll help make your trip fun to the max!

HRVR owners Libby and Lesley have both lived in Hood River for over 12 years. We love it here and can’t wait to share our enthusiasm for the area and all it has to offer with our guests.

Drawn to Hood River by it’s natural beauty and friendliness, Libby moved here from Colorado and bought the business in 2004. When not taking care of guests and the many facets of the business, Libby’s first passion is running on the beautiful and varied trails the gorge has to offer. Libby’s other favorite pastimes are mt biking, snowboarding and hanging out with her two active boys, Lewis and Myles.

Joined by Lesley “the Brit” the girls are determined to work hard to make sure you have a great time in Hood River. After living in the UK and Europe, Lesley is enjoying the change of pace and getting some kiteboarding, hiking, snowboarding and biking action.


20160511_072955Adrienne has been on the team for 2 years now as the Housekeeping Manager. She ensures things go smoothly in and out of the office. Adrienne loves living on Mt. Hood with her two boys and puppy Phin.  Some of her favorite local activities include berry picking all summer long!  In June she goes to The Draper Girls Farm for u-pick strawberries that make the sweetest jam.  In July she loves Nelson’s Blueberry Farm to fill the freezer with no spray blueberries, and in August going free ranging for blackberries and huckleberries on Mt. Hood.  Also a once or twice a year trip rafting is always a family favorite.  She likes the family vibe rafting with Zoller’s.
