Overview

White Salmon Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Sleeping Porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Nestled right on the banks of the White Salmon river in a small community of other cabins. It's private, though not isolated - there are neighboring cabins across the river and one next door. The setting is picturesque. Accommodations are simple (rustic) but with all the basic amenities. And less than an hour and a half from Portland, ten minutes from Hood River - its hard to beat the location.

Daytime outdoor activities, dinner on the deck, and sleeping on the screened porch are our favorite things to do. The river is spring fed so it is cold all year and swift, but a quick dip on a hot day is possible. Kayaking and rafting on the river are popular (class 2-5), and there are many guided trips options in BZ or Husum. There are also ample hiking, cycling and mountain biking options including the Nestor Peak 19 mile loop trail - which you can start from the door. Trout Lake and the Gifford Pinchot Forest are to the North with lots more recreation options - including Mt. Adams. There's also a commercial stable three miles down the road and golf (Husum Hills) approx. five miles away. Also multiple wineries and breweries within driving distance.

Hood River is a ten minute drive away. A great place to go for shopping and a meal. Trout Lake is about twenty miles to the North. The town of White Salmon is about five miles east.

A little more on the rustic charms… Cabin is about 600 square feet and includes main living area / kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and screened sleeping porch overlooking river. Maximum occupancy is three / two cars - though best suited for couple. It's an open floor plan, with limited separation between main living area and bedroom. The sleeping porch is screened and sits right on river. It's open and can get chilly - though is perfect in summer months - actually pretty dreamy. It's cozy living quarters - ideal for a couple. There is a small shower and sink from a curtained bathroom off the master bedroom. Kitchen is very functional and includes mini fridge, electric oven with stove top, coffee maker, toaster, sink with hot water, basic pots and pans, cooking tools, dishware, silverware etc. (on a hot summer weekend you will want to think about supplementing mini fridge with a cooler). There's also a gas BBQ outside.

It's simple, though very cool and a perfect staging area for various activities or for just relaxing. Oh - and our dog thinks its the best place in the world too. Cabin is dog friendly - no deposit required provided your dog behaves him/herself and stays off furniture.

Note: If you do decide to rent / stay, it's important to us that you be good neighbors to the other cabin owners. We appreciate your (and dog if you bring one) consciousness about the wild and scenic environment, appropriate quiet times, etc. If you're looking for a place to be loud / party / entertain - that's fine - but this is not the location for you. Maximum occupancy is three and two cars - unless otherwise arranged. Extra rates apply if we agree to occupancy above three. Inside cabin is non smoking.

Also: for some reason East Lake Road doesn't link with Google Earth or GPS - to see in Google just type in 11 Creekside Place (even though it's 11 East Lake Road) White Salmon, 98672. I show 45 degrees 46'53.52'N 121 degrees 30' 52.46'W

Finally, Condit Dam was breached in October 2011 creating a free-flowing White Salmon river for the first time in about a hundred years. The water in front of cabin has changed dramatically as a result. We still sit right on water, but it's definitely more river than lake now - faster and a much lower channel has been dug. Still very beautiful and the river sounds are now even more pronounced - but no longer placid and simply different. Photos posted are updated to give you sense of the change. Given drop in river the bank is now pretty steep. Not death defying or anything that ominous, but you just need to be careful when walking close to the edge. Best to access river at park below cabin vs. right below cabin. Cabin is not suitable for young children due to the proximity to the river and lack of deck child precautions in place.

About Courtney and Hillary Wilton

Portland couple and their dog.

Courtney and Hillary Wilton purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Courtney and Hillary Wilton chose White Salmon

Simple, very charming cabin, close to Portland and in the middle of Columbia Gorge recreational opportunities. We also like the Hood River vibe.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the Columbia Gorge and all it has to offer. We can't think of a better place to be on a summer evening than on the deck at the rivers edge after a day of paddling or hiking. And our golden retriever loves it even more than we do!

Cozy, rustic cabin on the White Salmon River

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to enjoy the sights and sounds of the White Salmon River. We loved eating by candlelight on the screened in porch, reading on the deck, and watching the rafters during the day! This is a beautiful spot close to great hiking and biking trails, orchards and vineyards, and picturesque towns.

Lovely rustic cabin vacation

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin was a dream. The setting is beautiful and quiet. The cabin is rustic, but the photos here don't really do it full justice - it is quite charming. It had all the basic amenities and was well maintained. The owners gave us all the info we needed for a comfortable, enjoyable stay. We loved the screened porch, watching the rafters and kayakers float by, the books and board games, and the classic DVD's and videos. It is perfect for one or two people wanting peace and quiet and to enjoy outdoor activities. We particularly enjoyed the Husum Hills Golf Course just minutes away. The green fees were reasonable and the course uncrowded. It is very hilly (hence the name), so a cart is recommended unless you're ready for the ups and downs. A huge bonus of this cabin was that it is pet friendly. I loved having my dog with me on vacation. We were there in late July and early August and the weather was mostly perfect. There was only one night that was quite warm and the bedroom got uncomfortable for sleeping, but we slept well on the screened porch that night. This little cabin is a gem and there are many fun activities and restaurants within very short driving distance. Loved every minute of our stay and hope to return.

Here's what New York Times says in is '46 Places to Go in 2013' article: 'a white-water paddler’s dream come true. A major dam removal in October to allow for fish passage means that the White Salmon River now runs all the way to the Columbia River, flowing freely from its glacial headwaters at Mount Adams for the first time in 100 years. Local outfitters like Wet Planet are expected to begin rafting and kayaking tours on the newly opened section of challenging Class IV rapids early this year. Conservationists are happy, too, as spawning chinook salmon and steelhead trout have already been spotted swimming upstream in the new habitat.' It's a very pretty and exciting river amongst other great features - i.e. Columbia Gorge, Mt. Hood, Mt Adams, Hood River, etc.

Notes:
Cabin in on White Salmon River and is ideal for relaxing, and numerous water activities - fishing, whitewater kayaking, rafting. We do a lot of whitewater kayaking and cabin location is take-out for lower white salmon white water run. It's just above Northwestern park. In the summer there are many commercial raft runs that float by as well - creating a festive environment. You can also run, walk, hike and mountain bike from cabin. The cabin itself if darling, though simple - definitely more cabin than house. But, the setting / outdoor opportunities are spectacular. It's in the heart of the Columbia Gorge. Many hiking and mountain biking opportunities close by. There's also a stable about three miles down the road and golf five miles north. Hood River is about 7 miles Southwest. Trout Lake is about 20 miles North.
