  • Great house. Spectacular ever-changing Views


    First time to the Columbia Gorge area. So much to see and do. Beautiful scenery. Views from the huge windows across the whole house are always changing…clouds and fog one minute, sunshine the next, sunrise to sunset.

    House is roomy and comfortable. Stocked with the little extras that helped us get settled.

  • Close enough to Portland Airport to use as last night - and great place for nature


    The purpose of the location was to be in close proximity to eventually exit the place to get to PDX airport. It was 35 minutes away and from the views it could have been 200 miles away. Excellent location to feel nature. Mountains, Waterfalls, Water pictures, National Parks, Hiking, Locks, fish hatchery, The home was very high on a hill - but this gives you access to an amazing view. We had a sunrise that was top 10 in my life. All the home comforts were there. Nice place.

  • Gorgeous Gorge


    Stunning views accompany a beautiful home with well kept amenities and easy access to trails and sites along the Columbia River Gorge. Since sleeping arrangements are always an unknown with a rental, I want to note the 3 nice size bedrooms (the master has a walkout to porch; one with twin beds) and 2 full baths. There’s a also a couch for a nap. Communication with owner was awesome. My only recommendation is for owner to post more pics of views from home and wraparound porch. It’s a stunning view of a landscape that seems to change by the hour as the sun, mist and clouds make the 4,000 foot cliffs come alive throughout the day.

  • Awesome views


    Selected this area to be close to waterfalls, trails and mountain views. Each box was checked from our list of to does. We also saw a fish hatchery, a power plant from the waters of the Columbia River- a sunrise beyond our dreams. The place has a bit of a drive to get to up a hill - but that’s where the better views are. The steps up to the front door are also a challenge if you bring huge luggage- but an inside staircase from the garage helps. Two large bedrooms with comfortable beds. Appliances appropriate for needs. Saw shooting stars on a clear night.
