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.

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.

Peaceful, relaxing getaway by the river

  • 5 of 5
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!

Peaceful River Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Peace of the River is a secluded riverside getaway north of Vancouver Washington. We visited because of a golf event in nearby Woodland and would consider returning any time when visiting the area North of Portland. The home is clean and comfortable with complete amenities. The view from the upper and lower level of the home is as if being in a tree house. When the windows of the home are open, river sounds fill the rooms. The deck is wonderful and is a great place for a BBQ. An excellent home for a gathering or family. Highly recommended.

Private, relaxing and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5
We travel quite often and have stayed in VRBO properties around the United States. We found this VRBO home to be "as described". The forest setting along the Kalama River was private, quite and comfortable. The property was clean and well maintained and the owner also provided easy access to housekeeping and handi-man services should they be needed during our stay. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a nice selection of arrival day supplies in the cabinets (coffee, tea, sugar, etc.). The property owner couldn't have been more kind and welcoming. We stayed at the property for a month while we searched for a new home in the area; this river retreat BECAME our home, and we enjoyed it very much. We would highly recommend it to others who are looking for a peaceful get-away.
Try the Chinese restaurant in downtown Kalama. Excellent food; crowded at peak dinning times, but well worth it! Thanks Donna, The Tirapelle's

Very relaxing stay!

  • 4 of 5
We have stayed at Peace of the River on several occasions in the last 5 years, and it never disappoints. In this time we have seen many updates and changes to the property, and every time we go we are surprised with new and exciting things. What was a pretty rustic stay 5 years ago now offers all the comforts of home without all of the work of being at home.

We have been able to get away, and close ourselves off from all the busyness that is daily life with our business and 5 teenagers in the house! The kids all love getting up there and planning anything from all night gaming sessions to deciding when the best time to float the river is or if the water level is suitable for jumping off the bridge.

We plan on returning once or twice more this summer and most summers for the foreseeable future.

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.
