Guestbook comments from the owner

The family and I really enjoyed staying at your place in Hammond. We found things to be well kept, in good condition, and in proper order. I really enjoyed the location as it is only three miles from Warrenton Marina and very near where we like to fish. Fishing was excellent, again this year. We hope to reserve for a longer stay for next year. Thanks for running a first class operation.

Wonderfully Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay!! The beds were very comfortable which is always a concern for me. There is a great master and 2 other bedrooms. We were so comfortable with 4 adults and 2 kids. It would have been comfortable with a couple more adults even. It is very well appointed. All the cookware you'd need. It is a good location if you want to be able to spend time at Fort Stevens. We had a good time playing and exploring out there. The drive into Astoria is quick and easy. There is not a lot to walk to from this location if that is something you are looking for. The owners were so sweet and accommodating. I made a mistake and entered my email incorrectly and they straightened it all out. Thanks Ron and Shannon.

Wonderful time at Hammond Hilton

  • 5 of 5

Ron and Shannon Walk have a beautiful home right on the Columbia. Despite torrential downpours we stayed warm and cozy and thoroughly enjoyed all the comforts of home. They have a well equipped kitchen for those who prefer to cook their own meals and, with 3 bedrooms each with their own queen bed (plus pull out sofa sleeper) there is room for everyone to stretch out. Plenty of hiking and other outdoor activities in area. Can't wait to return in drier weather to further explore the area! Thanks for a great holiday weekend!

Will rent again

  • 5 of 5

Pictures and description just as we found the unit. Warm, clean, cozy to move in and spend several days easily. Contact with owner was great. Text them a question and had answer back very quickly. Contact was very welcoming to their home. Can't beat the view of the Columbia River and watching the big tankers cruise by. Pretty much fixed our meals in house, but Fultano's in Warrenton had great pizza. Fred Meyers for groceries just five minutes away. Would definitely rent again.

Siblings Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for three siblings and a brother in-law to have a fabulous getaway. The weather was mostly rainy and the fireplace kept the home toasty every evening after a day out and about! The setting was very quiet and the view of the river was fabulous. The boating activity was thoroughly enjoyed at all hours. We came from Colorado, California and Nevada which made the setting even more special and appreciated. All the amenities were exactly as described from quality appliances to coffee beans in the freezer (which we've never had at a VRBO!) and the most amazingly comfortable beds and pillows in all three rooms. We are all wanting to know what brand mattresses you selected! We'd definitely recommend staying at your perfect getaway!
