Overview

Stevenson House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

On the Washington side of the Columbia River, Riverglen is one of the only waterfront homes within the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area. Riverglen has more than 200 feet of shoreline with coves and two rocky beaches (the larger of which is a perfect launch site for windsurfing and kiteboarding).

You approach this home down a quarter-mile long lane that winds through tall firs and cedars. At the end of the lane is a parking area which is separated from the home by railroad tracks. [Because there are no nearby crossings, passing trains do not sound their horns, and a thick grove of trees helps make the sound barely noticeable.]

A custom-built, steel footbridge will carry you over the tracks, and carts are kept at the parking area to help carry your things. Note: The bridge is wide, very safe and easy to negotiate, but the slope may challenge those with limited strength or breath (see photos).

Riverglen's wraparound porch is just steps from the beaches, and from either entrance, beautiful hardwood floors lead you through the house and compliment the massive beams, creating a warm, inviting feel. The Greatroom's wraparound windows let you enjoy a 180-degree River view, and the stone, wood-burning fireplace will welcome you back from your day's adventures. An eating bar separates the complete cook's kitchen from the dining area which seats six.

The main floor Master Suite offers a comfortable queen bed and has a walk-in closet. Its full bath is tiled in slate and has an inviting tub with shower, double sinks and a picture window. Washer and dryer are just across the hall, along with outdoor cushions and beach towels.

Upstairs a large, welcoming sitting room holds a nice selection of games and some cozy spots to curl up and read or catch a nap. A 32"-inch HDTV with internet-streaming Blu-ray will bring Netflix/Hulu/YouTube/Pandora, and all your favorite games, but the trees prevent us from having satellite TV. There's also a DVD (and VCR!) player with a fine collection of DVDs and some vintage VCR movies to browse through.

A cozy bedroom down the hall has a full bed and French doors that open onto a private, River-view deck. The third bedroom features a stunning view from its large picture window. Here you'll find two twin daybeds and a large executive desk, complete with wireless keyboard and a vintage leather chair. Write the next great American novel, or just gaze at the Gorge cliffs and sparkling River below!

These bedrooms share an elegant, slate-tiled bath with walk-in shower and deep, step-up soaking tub. The picture window here offers a lovely western view of the Gorge with sunsets that turn the River crimson.

But you won't want to just LOOK at the view -- get out in it!! Just out the back door to the left, a private beach is just steps away (it's rocky, so water shoes or sneakers are a must). To the right is a path that leads to a little cove with a small beach, and in between are gorge-eous, rocky outcroppings. The bigger beach has straight, unobstructed access to the river -- great for launching your kiteboard or whatever else you fly on [but please no motorized sports] You'll be a few miles west of the crowds that choose Hood River vacation rentals, and enjoy the same famous, spectacular Gorge winds.

Of course, the view to the cliffs across the river might distract you, so go ahead and let the magic of this place take over! Roam the wooded, 6-acre grounds, but watch out for poison oak (info in the house notes). Also, please be sure and keep your dog leashed whenever outside; the creek on the east side of the property is an active salmon spawning ground.

If you venture off the property, the town of Stevenson is less than 2 miles west, and the road to Carson (and on to the woodlands and waterfalls of the vast Gifford Pinchot National Forest) is at the flashing light. Head east to the Hood River bridge for all the sights on the Oregon side of the River, or go on out to Eastern Washington's celebrated wine country! The Columbia Gorge Appellation is one of 15 different regions, all producing award-winning wines, and supporting an active and growing group of outstanding wineries.

Before you get there, stop off at Maryhill! This turn-of-the-twentieth-century mansion holds several interesting collections in its museum, and is also the site of Maryhill Winery. Its location on top of a high bluff gives it jaw-dropping views in all directions - take lots of pictures!

Whatever you do, you'll want to be back in time for the glorious sunset -- toast your day and plan tomorrow's adventures. There's so much to do in the area, it won't be an easy choice - but you can't go wrong at Riverglen; it's a little slice of heaven!

Great Family Home

  • 5 of 5
This home is set up beautifully for families. There are plenty of beds, games and activities to keep all ages happy. The kitchen is stocked nicely with pantry staples. The only complaint I have is the pots and pans are not up to standard for my cooking! Everything stuck to the pans!! We stayed here because of the uniqueness of the bridge and rail traffic. It added a whole new element of adventure for my husband and 4 children. Even though the tracks run fairly close to the home, you don't hear trains inside because they are moving so fast, and never blow their horns(unless your children are encouraging them from atop the bridge!) The home has a gorgeous view of the gorge, and we never saw the caretaker, even though his home is right next to the main house. We drove the 30 minute drive to Hood River and spent the day doing the Mt. Hood Railroad, Polar Express, Andrews Pizza, Air Museum, and Fruit Loop. It is a pet friendly home, with a basket by the front door with pet supplies, towels to wipe paws, and what not. We didn't bring our dog, but it was very thoughtful.

Beautiful home in Stevenson Area

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay there. The views from all the windows/property are amazing. The house is gorgeous and had everything we needed! The walk from where you park your car to the house is a bit challenging so my suggestion is to pack lightly and bring only what you really need as we made many trips back and forth to the car. There is a cart with big wheels so that helps but there is only one and it isn't that big. My suggestion to the owners is to have 4 of those carts instead of one. That would mean less time spent transporting clothes/food/games/coolers up and over that ramp. Normal luggage wheels won't roll over the gravel or the metal slates in the ramp so you have to carry your stuff. Beyond that challenge, it was a wonderful place and we had a great family vacation.

Family Weekend at Riverglen House

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed a long weekend at the Riverglen house at the end of June. The house itself is absolutely gorgeous with hardwood floors, slate tile and a very open floor plan. The property is breathtaking. Although it is by train tracks, they werent too loud when in the house and the younger kids in the group loved watching the train and counting the cars. There is great hiking near by, lovely wineries as well as some great microbreweries near by.

Vacasa was easy to book with, helped give us driving directions and were quick to help us when the code didnt work to get into the house. The ramp from the cars to the house would be challenging for those with limited mobility. We barely noticed the on site caretaker. Beach area was clean with a nice fire pit and table. We will be back to this beautiful site soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you for this thoughtful review of this stunning home. We are so glad that you appreciated the beautiful hardwood floors and open floor plan. We love to hear that the kids enjoyed counting the train cars as they passed by. It's also very nice to hear that you were pleased with the service you received from Vacasa and hope you'll visit again!

Gorgeous view and Home

  • 5 of 5
Amazing view and property - the kids had an incredible time exploring and finding new ways to adventure. :-) We will certainly be returning. Gorgeous home, by the way. Very different than the average vacation rental. The owners clearly take pride in the home, I can appreciate all the work and effort put into this.

A Family Find!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, both having broken into our 70's, have vacationed for years with some or all of our five grandchildren. After selecting places to go that will both teach and excite them (We're NOT the "theme park" types.), the biggest challenge is often finding a place to stay. Our choice of the Columbia Gorge property for the latter this year (2013) restored us to "hero status."
Having at first been a bit apprehensive about the location next to the railroad tracks, we were delighted to find that not only was access to the property quite easy, the infrequent trains that zipped by were, thanks to some excellent landscaping, practically unheard and invisible,...and intriguing.
And if for those few folks the trains are indeed worrisome, let us assure that the well appointed large and exceptionally comfortable house well compensates. But the true charm, harkening to that old real estate term "location," is the forested isolation, the nearby stream, and most of all the broad and personal expanse of Columbia River and Gorge a few uninterrupted steps from the relaxing front porch.
In spite of our foursome having spent most of the one full day of our visit (two nights) rafting on the nearby White Salmon River, another recommendation, the teenage grandkids chose to run and safely explore the property and, per grandparents' request, gather some delicious blackberries consumed at breakfast the day of our departure.
Our sincere thanks and compliments to our kind and helpful hostess and our regrets we had not booked a longer stay.

Wonder-tastic Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures of the house and view don't do it justice. This house was a wonderful place to stay while visiting the area. We loved the upstairs tub and shower! The house was beautiful, well appointed and clean. The owner was very easy to communicate with and did a great job getting the house ready for us on short notice. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a peaceful, nature-filled experience. As others have stated, it took us a night to get used to hearing the trains, but then we hardly noticed them. This house was more money than we wanted to spend, but well worth it!
