The foundation of this home was started before the Columbia Gorge National Scenic area was created, and was thus 'grandfathered' into the park. It is one of the only Columbia River waterfront residences within the scenic area. It is also at the mouth of a small creek that has its own salmon spawning run. The property is over six acres and is wooded.
Wildlife abound, including deer, rabbits, mink, raccoons, geese, and ducks. The marvelous drives, trails, and waterfalls of the Gifford-Pinchot National Forest, which also contains Mount St. Helens, is just a few miles away. Hood River, the wind surfing capital of the world is 20 minutes away, but if you want to surf, the beaches at the house are perfect launch spots.
The house itself is stone and wood, and is just a few years old. There are abundant windows so that you can enjoy the 180 degree river view.
The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and walk in closet. An upstairs bedroom has a double bed and sliding windows that open onto a river view deck. The office, facing the river has twin beds.

I am a physician and my wife is a health educator. For many years we have been actively involved in international disaster relief work. When war, hurricane, or earthquakes strike, we are usually there. When we are at home, we operate a large, active wheat, cattle, and alfalfa ranch in south central Washington State. Eventually, the ranch will become too much for us, so we have the lovely retirement home in Stevenson ready to receive us so that we will be able to fish, hike, and drive the forest roads in our old age!
I was looking for a nice little spot on a lake, but when I found this place on the Columbia River, I fell in love. The moss covered point jutting into the river. The house site with 180 degree views. The lovely, private beaches. I bought it for myself, but decided to share it as a vacation rental until I'm ready to retire.
This is a place of peace and isolation. It's near the activity of Portland and Hood River, but is all by itself in the woods. We rarely even pull the shades while there. There is just no need. Even the bathtub and shower have lovely views. If I need to de-stress after the fury of working at a disaster site, I come here.
A small creek with it's own salmon spawning run flows through the beach. Great, close-up fish view in the Autumn. Gifford-Pinchot National Forest with the Mount St. Helens Volcano is nearby.
