Just 1 hour (50 miles) east of Portland, and 20 minutes west of Hood River, the interior of this eclectic 2,000 sq. ft. four-bedroom, two-bath home is bursting with personality.
Our house sits at the end of a private gravel road, perched on a flat lot that offers complete privacy and a stunning panoramic view of the Columbia Gorge, Columbia River, Bridge of the Gods and surrounding 3,000+ foot gorge ridgelines of Oregon and Washington.
Think of our home as your base camp for virtually any recreational activity you and your family and friends enjoy. Year-round recreational activities including hiking, biking, golf, whitewater rafting & kayaking, windsurfing & kiting, downhill & cross country skiing are within easy reach in any direction for the avid outdoor lover or young families with children.
Three of the northern Cascade mountains are within a 60 minute drive, including the famous Mt. St. Helens volcano and Mt. Adams in Washington, as well as Oregon’s Mt. Hood featuring winter snow sports and summer lakes and hiking.
Our home is less than 20 minutes from Oregon’s majestic Multnomah Falls, the second-tallest year-round waterfall in the nation, plummeting 620 feet, and 100 other waterfalls within the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area that are accessible via well-maintained trails of varying difficulty.
The historic town of Stevenson, Washington is just five minutes down the hill and features great restaurants, quaint shops and themed community festivals nearly every weekend between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
Three natural hot springs spas, several championship golf courses, and numerous fine dining options are also less than 20 minutes away in Stevenson, Carson, or North Bonneville on the Washington side of the Gorge, or in Hood River on the Oregon side.
A budding wine industry has also taken root along both sides of the Gorge, with over 30 wineries located within 15-45 minutes from our home. Or take a Columbia River cruise on the historic Sternwheeler and experience the river like the early northwest settlers. From there, visit Bonneville Dam and watch the mighty fall and spring runs of Chinook and Steelhead salmon fighting their way upstream to spawn.
The options are simply endless.
After a day of outdoor activities, you can return to a soothing soak in the hot tub while you enjoy the panoramic Gorge view, enjoy a game of pool, DirectTV, lots of classic board games, cards, puzzles, a DVD/VHS player, and GameCube and Sega video game systems with an assortment of games, then relax with a good book or movie beside the woodstove. High-speed wireless Internet access is also available.
Three of the four bedrooms contain a queen bed and the fourth bedroom has two twins. There is also a twin available in an ante-room connected to the master bedroom. The layout is perfect for a large family or two families with kids.
The full kitchen has like-new appliances and cabinetry and a ceramic vegetable mosaic backsplash hand-made by the owners. A full laundry makes it easy to pack light for a long stay.
This unique home is a perfect place to spend time with family and friends in magical surroundings. Pets OK. Please no smoking.
