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.

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

August 31 to September 2, 2013 "We stayed over long weekend over Labor Day. This is an amazing area to explore with waterfalls and caves in lava canyon (approx 1 hour away). Also the house is situated in a great location away from any other houses surrounded by trees and river just footsteps away. Deck is also quite amazing with 180degree view of area with river and trees. We truely enjoyed the house and area around Kalama and love to come back"

We came here with our kids + baby and parents (who came from Israel to spend some family time with us) and it was the perfect place for us - quiet, very comfy, and beautiful. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We appreciate your efforts to make our stay here so enjoyable and for making the house baby safe.
Thank you! Toddah!"

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.
