We LOVE the quiet natural beauty of this area and we find it a very restful get away from our hectic chaotic lifestyle plus we enjoy the modern & comfortable lodge-like feeling of this home. When we are here we go 'off schedule', reading, napping & watching the 'river parade' and doing whatever suits us whenever we feel like it.
Donna purchased this house in 1995
So many of the homes along the river are jammed together but this great place is nestled in the trees and feels secluded and private.
Thank you so much for letting my family and I stay in this wonderful home! I would love to live in this house. The scenery is breathtaking. One of my favorite things about this house is how much space there is! I would definitely recomment this for a vacation get away.
Donna, the cabin is wonderful. It's our second Christmas at Peace of the river. What a beautiful setting. Everything is just as the pictures depict and your words describe. You all have done a great job in keeping your place clean and up to date. I really want to come back in the Summer time. Maybe then, I wouldn't burn up all your Firewood!
My expectations were exceeded. Your home on the Kalama was perfect and better than pictured or described. Downstairs rooms were as awesome as upstairs. Your directions & communication get high marks from this old engineer. For anyone who loves nature and wishes to relax in a classical, on the river setting, in the Pacific Northwest, this is the place. Quick & easy access to "civilization" in Longview or shopping in Portland / Seattle if wanted. For me it was exploring & hunting Steelhead watching Salmon in the early morning and late afternoon during the day. In between it was tying flies, resting and then sleeping on the couch with the the doors open and screens closed listing to a river I love. As the Terminator say's-------- "I'll be back"
Thank you Donna. Do not normalize the deviance i.e. appreciate the beauty you have in this location and never take it for granted. Fortunately, the Kalama has not greatly changed that much over the years.
This vacation rental is perfectly maintained and furnished, and the owners are fantastic to deal with. It's perfectly located for visiting both the north and south areas of Mt. St. Helens, and a short drive to the Oregon coast or to Portland. Everything they say about peace of the river is true with this unique property. We will be back.
We had a wonderful time at Kalama. The house is very comfortable and super convenient for those who came from Portland and Seattle. Good central location as well for hikes in the area. Looking forward to trying get back next summer!
The "Peace of the River" Vacation Rental is a wonderful place to stay! The kitchen had everything you could possibly need! The beds were VERY COMFY and the bathrooms were squeaky clean! There are plenty of TV's but we spent some time at the dining table playing cards and board games! The views are Beautiful and a favorite place to have my coffee was on the deck! The Kalama store down the street had everything we needed and the people there were so wonderful and helpful! The only thing that keeps us from giving 5 stars is there was no direct access to the river. There is a short walk to the bridge to gain access but the path was not exactly easy for my kids ages 8 & 11. I would definitely recommend!
We had a great time during our stay at Peace at the River. Although we admittedly spent two days fishing in the local time of Kalama with a guide, we did spend a lot of time at the property. The property is exactly like the description; well setup for a group or family, lots of space with the downstairs floor, and fantastic to hear the bubbling river on the beautiful deck. We would definitely stay here again, and may try to do so if we fish Kalama again on the Columbia. The owners were great, they provided lots of details for us, welcomed our stay, and even found our lost iPod after we left and shipped it back to us! Thanks again for a great trip!
We often see herons fishing the shoals below, eagles flying overhead and once we saw an elk herd on the ridge across the river! And as noted by VRBO...Relax and Unwind in Southwest Washington.The scenic area of southwest Washington offers breathtaking scenery, sandy beaches, small port towns and all the activities of the Northern Cascade Mountains close by. The area is known for its fertile estuaries and centuries-old landmarks. Charted by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in 1805, southwest Washington was considered the most desirable area to settle west of the Rocky Mountains. It now offers a delightful escape from city life for vacationers looking to relax and enjoy the spectacular local scenery.
