Description from owner

Welcome to the Columbia River waterfront Columbia Gorge River House! You will be amazed by the panoramic and breathtaking 180-degree views of the Columbia River, Cascade Locks Bridge of the Gods (starring in the movie WILD!), and Cascade Mountain Range in this spectacular new 2500 sq ft 4 bedroom waterfront craftsman home. You will feel on vacation the minute you walk through the door and see the water and mountains thru a wall of windows and glass doors just steps away! This paradise vacation retreat is located in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge in Stevenson, WA only 20 minutes west of Hood River and 45 minutes east of downtown Portland . Perfect spot for day trips throughout the area.

This beautiful 3-level home includes all new quality furniture, linens, appliances, and slate floors. High vaulted ceilings in main-level living area and upstairs bedrooms and bath. The main level opens to a waterfront deck and side patios. The lower level family room leads directly through a wall of glass doors to the waterfront stone patio with steps to the river. You will find plenty of outdoor furniture and a gas BBQ for summer grilling, alfresco dining and lounging.

This home is one of only a very few located directly on the Columbia River. The easy low-bank river access from our private cove offers the ideal launching area for water sports and swimming. You will have a private front-row seat to watch all the summer sailing world class sailing events, standup paddle and Gorge Outrigger races, Bridge of the Gods Kite Surfing, and July 4th fireworks! You can leave your car parked once you arrive, as you are in the center of it all, an easy 1-2 block stroll to shops, grocery store, cafes, bars & restaurants, award-winning Brewery, parks, windsurf and kite board beaches.

After a day of activities, you will love coming home to relax on your own private waterfront just in time to watch the sunset and enjoy a glass of wine or a cold beer. It does not get better than this!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

***** Amazing View Home - Perfect Setting on the water

We'd highly recommend this house for anyone looking to enjoy the natural beauty of the Gorge with family or friends. The location is very private with direct access to the Columbia River, as well as a 2 minute walk to Bob's Beach park (major windsurfing launch spot). The house configuration was perfect for multiple families and all of the amenities were in great shape. The multiple decks gave amazing views but were also sheltered from the strong Gorge winds. We walked into Stevenson to check out brew pubs, ice cream store and other small town sites...very relaxing place. Owners of the house were incredibly responsive and professional!

***** Lovely House - unbeatable view

My husband is a wind surfing enthusiast so the Columbia gorge is a great place for us to vacation. He enjoys the windsurfing and we all enjoy the many other activities available in the area. The house is lovely, fresh and clean with an absolutely beautiful view. It provides a perfect spot to relax in the sun and read a book with direct access to the water for swimming. The house is equipped with every amenity we could want. Our family has been there twice with our three teenage children and we would be happy to return again.

***** Beautiful home and amazing views

We had the best time staying here for our weekend vacation. The house is just as beautiful as the pictures and then some. The views from the house are amazing and the location is great. There is so much to do in the area. We were able to go whitewater rafting, hiking and exploring around Stevenson. The house was big enough for our 8 people group and had everything we needed. We all had such a wonderful time will be coming back again.

*** From Karen H - Fascinating, Relaxing, and Fun!

We were drawn to the property for its location close to hiking and lots of brew pubs, but what we discovered was the magnificence of the Columbia River. None of us were quite prepared for the fascinating and spectacular scenery, history, and "goings-on" in this area. The little beach at the house made for fun splashing for the little girls, and hunting for sea/river glass became a daily activity. Although we did get some great hiking time in, we also found the Bonneville Dam and Fish Ladders so worth a visit. Maryhill Museum is only about an hour away, and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to see the Theatre de la Mode exhibit! We also found Stevenson to be a fun town, with some lovely shops and a grocery store with some of the friendliest employees ever! All in all, we were so comfortable in the house, and we were all so happy for the chance to experience the Columbia River Gorge in ways we never could have imagined.

*** From Anna - Gorgeous views, Central location, Great Home

My family (2 adults and 3 teens) stayed here for 12 days with ample space for all. The home has views of the Columbia River and Bridge of the Gods that will knock your socks off. If you are a kite surfer or wind surfer this is a wonderful place to be. If not, the hiking trails will keep you busy. The location is in the center of hundreds of hikes (with waterfalls) in Oregon and Washington. There are mineral baths nearby to relax your muscles after a long day of hiking. Everything is at your fingertips here. The town has great restaurants and breweries and cafe's just a block or two away. The grocery store just a few blocks away had everything we needed as well. The home is modern, clean, very well stocked, and wonderfully maintained. Many backyard spaces to watch the activity on the river, dine outdoors, or just practice some yoga. Around the house are well placed lavender bushes, rosemary bushes and other beautiful plants, one feels compelled to be outdoors and is rewarded with the fragrances of the plants and trees around the home. While we were there, my son even befriended a family of ducks that he fed in the evenings after he collected many beautiful pieces of sea glass on the beach that is on the property. The owners are helpful, attentive, but not intrusive. It was very easy to book this home and the security deposit was refunded quickly after our stay. This is a storybook place. We will return and recommend this home to others.
