The house was beautiful, the views were amazing. It felt very peaceful here without feeling in the middle of nowhere. Wonderful to wake up to the gorge and go to bed to the stars. Really great place for our kids and for our dog as well but would also be ideal for a romantic getaway. The owners were wonderful in giving suggestions. Can’t wait to stay here again!

Had a great family vacation in this beautiful and relaxing home.

We had a wonderful, relaxing time at this house. On the rainy day, we stuck close to the hot tub and fireplace, and on the sunny ones, we explored the area and enjoyed the view. We especially appreciated the kid-friendly touches (such as childproof kitchen chemicals and a bin full of toys). We had a great time!

Comfortable and clean. Perfect getaway.

Of all the homes we’ve rented for our annual ladies weekend (this year was our 15th year), this one was definitely one of our favorites. The home was beautiful and the grounds were exceptionally lovely. We enjoyed the stunning sunsets from the beautiful decks. The quietness and privacy provided is a wonderful chance to relax and reconnect! We high recommend this home!

Easy access from Portland (or coming down from Seattle), and great view and home.

Take note, if you are looking for a relaxing/private get-a-way, don't stay here. There is a fully operational kids camp next door that treats the renal property as if it was also there own. Nothing against children, but if we had known that up front, it would have certainly influenced our decision as to where we chose to celebrate our 28th anniversary. Very disappointed in the owner and Vacasa mgmt team response.
Manager response:
We apologize if the kids' camp ran over their space. We have spoken with the camp, and they have agreed the shared yard is to be a quiet space for vacationers to relax in and enjoy. We would also like to note this is a summer camp only, and their operation was completed at the end of August. This was an isolated incident, and the guest was refunded for the frustration it caused. Thank you!

This house is not only beautiful but very functional. We enjoyed the views of trees and the water peeking through. It's layout is perfect for separating the tv watchers from the hang out conversationalists. Very clean, well stocked, organized and great directions for everything from the entertainment system to the recycling. Loved the huge yard, hammock and large deck, hot tub and outdoor shower. Would love to live here full time, but renting again will have to do. Met the owner who lives nearby and very friendly and welcoming, but not intrusive by any means.

This place is stocked well with everything you would possibly need, including baby stuff. Very comfortable stay. Beautiful views. Relaxing.

Everyone could relax and enjoy the wonderful amenities if the house

We loved everything about this vacation rental. The hot tub and sauna were nice and very clean. It was well stocked with towels and blankets. The rental is close to town. We were able to do some grocery shopping and were less than 10 minutes from some great restaurants. My only suggestion is to make sure you follow the directions they give you to get there. GPS was very wrong (as stated in the email that they sent), but once we found the directions it was very easy to find. We will definitely stay here again.

Wonderful home, extremely comfortable, lovely view, surrounding area is spectacular. Perfect weekend getaway!
Adam S. Jan 2018
The house is beautiful. Would love to go in the summertime as weather wasn't great. Seems like there would be a lot of things to do on the property when nice out. But we all had fun staying mostly indoors anyway!!
Doug S. Jan 2018
Quiet and peaceful
Erin S. Jan 2018
We traveled with friends and two small kids and had a great time at this house. The big windows overlooking the swaying trees and the Columbia River beyond was so peaceful. The high tech entertainment system was fun and sauna and hot tub were everything we could have hoped for.
Saina H. Dec 2017
We really loved staying at this place. The fireplace was warm, the sauna was comfortable and the hot tub was relaxing. There is all sorts of kitchenware to comfortably cook. The place was really clean. 8 people can easily stay there. Entertainment system is fantastic!
