Great location, comfortable stay!

We had a lovely week in Stevenson as a family of 4. The location of this property is right on the water, with a stunning view of the gorge. We loved sitting outside the deck in the mornings and early evenings, and ate dinner outside one night. I wish we had done this more actually, the picnic table was perfect for summer dining al fresco! The hosts were extremely thoughtful and the house was well appointed with everything we'd need, especially in the kitchen. Loved the grill as well. The host was responsive and communicative, making sure we had absolutely everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The only downsides I can think of are 1) the bedrooms are a bit small and 2) the house is right by the train tracks. I found it hard to sleep the first night, but then I got used to it, and the hosts were also thoughtful enough to provide earplugs and to mention this very clearly in the review, so it wasn't a surprise. Overall, I have nothing but wonderful memories from our week in Stevenson, and would recommend this property to others,

From initial communication, to pre-stay details and planning, to the experience itself - this was fantastic! The property was clean and well maintained. Location in the small town of Stevenson, WA on the river and with close access to all sorts of outdoor activities was phenomenal. Whitewater rafting, hiking to waterfalls, kayaking, segway tour, kite surfing viewing ... lots to do in the area and we were happy to call this place home while we explored. Recommended!

Couldn't ask for a lovelier place to stay !!!!

Thank you Kristi for sharing your beautiful home with us ! This was a fun family reunion and your home easily accommodated us in such a magnificent setting ! Such a gorgeous view from the house...the Gorge, the windsurfers, and the Bridge of Gods all seen from the patio. We enjoyed playing games on the porch, eating outside, fishing from the shoreline, and collecting special rocks and colored glass with our grandson. We were just a brief walk from the cozy numerous eating places in Stevenson and enjoyed an excursion and hiking at Skamania Lodge. Couldn't ask for a lovelier place to stay !!!!

Perfect Home in Great Location

We rented this house three weeks last summer. We chose Stevenson as it is a great base for a Gorge vacation. Everything was as advertised--this place will not disappoint. The home is very clean and high standing, with open space and vaulted ceilings, great privacy, and magnificent views of the water and Columbia gorge scenery. Few places in the Gorge are right on the water with private beach, yet pretty much in town. We loved being able to walk to the cafes and breweries for a dinner or lunch out, or just stay at home to enjoy the deck, and outside waterfront living. We windsurfed right out of the house, or drove a few minutes to the Hatchery or Doug's. On hot "nuking" days when we had sailed East, it was so nice to come home to Stevenson and enjoy a cooler evening and quiet winds, with a sip of wine on the patio. We will definitely come back.

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. Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Adventure Seekers, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers.

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.

Amazing View Home - Perfect Setting on the water

This was the perfect home for our family's Memorial Day vacation. The panoramic views from the house are amazing and the central location is great. We were able to windsurf and paddle board right from the property. It's also close to hiking and walking distance to all the Stevenson shops, restaurants, and breweries. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. We will be coming back again.

Highly Recommended!

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!

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 6 people group and had everything we needed. We all had such a wonderful time will be coming back again.
