Waterfront "Columbia Gorge River House" Stunning Views, Private Water Access!

Welcome to our Stevenson, WA 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 2400 sq ft 4 bedroom waterfront craftsman home that sleeps up to 6 guests. 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, Washington, only 45 minutes east of Portland/PDX and a beautiful 20 minute drive west of Hood River. This is the Perfect central Gorge location for day trips throughout the area when you are not enjoying activities on the water.

The Columbia Gorge River House is one of only a very few homes and lodging located directly on the Columbia River.  The easy low-bank river access from our private cove offers the ideal launching area for water sports, wind surfing, kayaking, and SUP. You'll have a private front-row seat to watch summer CGRA sailing events, SUP 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, restaurants, pubs, award-winning Walking Man Brewery, parks, windsurf and kite board beaches.

The River House includes quality furniture, linens, appliances, and slate floors. High vaulted ceilings in the main-level living area and two upstairs bedrooms and bath. The main level includes one bedroom and bath, kitchen/dining, living, and tiki bar room, and opens to the waterfront deck and side patio with BBQ.  The lower level includes the 4th bedroom and family room which leads directly through a wall of glass doors to a waterfront stone patio with just a few rustic steps down to the river. You will find plenty of outdoor furniture and a gas BBQ for summer grilling, alfresco dining and lounging.

Stevenson is a great area for enjoying spas and hot springs, golfing, hiking, biking, rock climbing, fishing, river rafting, birding, visiting wineries, breweries, whiskey and hard cider distilleries, and museums.  It is the perfect central location for day trips to Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Maryhill Museum, Maryhill Winery, Carson Hot Springs, Beacon Rock, Dog Mountain, Multnomah Falls, Portland, and the Oregon Coast.

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!
