Rustic luxury with attention to detail. Eva's Cottage is comfortable and cozy, with many thoughtful touches like the down comforter and pillows on the queen-size, custom-built log bed (truly one of a kind!), and travertine/river rock shower. Relax by the massive stone, wood-burning fireplace, or in the hot tub just outside the greatroom. With wireless internet, internet TV and landline, you'll be as connected as you want, or need to be. This one-bedroom, one-bath, cottage is perfect for a couple or a solo visitor. Alternate lifestyle- and dog-friendly.
From the greatroom, antique casement windows overlook the wraparound porch. The nook is a quiet, serene spot for reading or sleeping, and the kitchen is completely furnished to accommodate serious cooks, as well as those seeking a vacation from cooking.
In the well-stocked kitchen you'll find a programmable drip coffee maker, coffee filters, coffee grinder, a French Press, a Keureg, microwave, toaster oven, electric water kettle, placemats, cloth napkins, tea towels and a British hotel teapot with a copper cozy. All this is in addition to a full set of cookware, flatware, glasses, dinnerware for 4 and full-size appliances. Amenities at Eva's Cottage also include toiletries, firewood and dog towels/cleanup kit.
If you need entertainment beyond watching the deer grazing nearby, you'll find internet TV (there is no other TV reception; the trees are so large they block line of sight to satellites) in greatroom, a TV/DVD/stereo in the bedroom, lots of games and books.

Eva's Cottage sits just a few steps from our sandy beach, down a sloping path. It is an idyllic location with many eagles, heron, hawks, and deer, a large 20' deep swimming hole and year-round waterfall. The land surrounding the Cottage and across the river is private and protected. The temperate climate is never too hot or too cold. [Note: beach is shared by residents of nearby home, but they are quiet and respectful of our guests. Please note also that beach fires and fishing from the beach are not allowed (there is great fishing just 1/2 mile downriver, on the other side of the Salmon Falls bridge).]
This 28.5 acre retreat includes a large and rare stand of old-growth Douglas fir, Western cedar, hemlock and maple; some of which are estimated to be more than 300 years old. Eva's descendants steward the land and maintain the forest with an eye to future generations' enjoyment.
A good supermarket, drugstore, and other services are about 14 miles away in the town of Washougal. The location provides easy, year-round access to hiking, boating, fishing, skiing and more. The Washougal is one of only two completely unpolluted rivers in the region. It offers fine fishing, whitewater rafting, canoeing and kayaking as it flows into the mighty Columbia River just a few miles to the south. All manner of outdoor activities are close by, yet the setting itself is secluded and free from the noise and distractions of everyday life.

This is really a special place. Being from Vancouver it wasn't very far. But it felt like you were in the middle of nowhere. Everything was terrific! The cottage was very clean and well stalked. My only criticism would be the firewood. Like other cottages I have stayed at, the wood doesn't burn well. I brought an axe to cut it into smaller pieces and that helped. I brought a couple duraflame logs that made a huge difference. Other then that, make sure to bring your own food. There is a store about 3 miles down the road but it's expensive. Other then that enjoy! I wasn't brave enough to swim in the cold river but the hot tub was so nice. Especially at night. It's all very private. I have no doubt I will return soon!
Once again we have had the best time. Stayed with Vacasa when we were in Tacoma and now here at Eva's Cottage. What a gem in the wilds. Made me home sick for my Cabin. The owners have made their grandmother very happy. I know she's smiling down on every one who shares her place. Every detail was thought out and made for a comfortable stay. We loved this place and Will definitely return.
Our 6th visit to Eva's.... (we own 4 vacation rentals of our own) but we choose to vacation at Eva's as we can just relax, read and "be". Wonderful secluded location on the Washougal River makes for a peaceful retreat that breaks us of the daily hustle and bustle being business owners brings. Thank you as always for providing a wonderful retreat to escape to.
More than happy loved the location. The cottage was very comfortable & pristine. I really appreciated the detailed info re nearest grocery stores restaurants etc. Directions & check in Very user friendly. I'm sorry I'm not more eloquent to do the whole experience more justice. Thank u so much plan to visit again.
The high reviews for this charming little cabin don't lie! This place is incredible. Although the weather was mostly wet and dreary, we still had a fantastic time.
The pictures do not do this home justice. It is very cute and relaxing inside and out. Wonderfully quiet location. The views are fantastic and we can't wait to return during the summer and jump in the swimming hole.
