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.

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home! The whole feel of the house was peaceful, warm and welcoming, very clean and everything well maintained. The beds were really comfortable and the linens were very nice quality. The kitchen is very well stocked. The weather wasn't sunny during our stay but it didn't matter at all because of the cozy fireplace and the fantastic selection of DVDs, as well as the fascinating constant parade of ships and boats. I love the little succulent garden in the little boat out front. The location of this house is fantastic with so many things to do and see. We went into Cannon Beach, Astoria and local places. We saw a baby elk very close to the road right down the street from the house! I can't wait to come back!

Really nice communications with the owner too.

Fabulous Riverside Home

  • 5 of 5

What a great spot! At the end of a quiet road facing the Columbia River. The home was fully equipped with everything we could image (and then some). Great big family room for getting everyone together. And VERY close to Fort Stevens and its beaches.

Great Reprieve from Work Overload

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental home was just the perfect place for my husband, myself, and a few friends to really get away from our hectic work schedule. We actually brought work with us thinking we just can't get away, but once we got to Ron and Shannon's house, all our worries were forgotten. With such a relaxing atmosphere and such a welcoming feeling once we reached our destination, we just couldn't get started on the work we brought with us.

There was so much to see and do in Astoria and it's surround, so this is just the perfect place to be. This place is away from the traffic in downtown Astoria, yet easily accessible to everything. Watching the ships go by while we played cards and enjoyed a bottle of wine, combined with the warmth of the fire in the fire pit located in the front yard.........priceless.

Fabulous vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The home is even better than I had hoped. We had a family reunion there and it was cozy, comfortable, our whole time there was blessed. Loved the view with even a moonlight walk along the river bank and three large bucks drew near. Great fire pit out in front with plenty of chairs. Plenty of cooking utensils and the kitchen table has leafs/extensions for it, so very happy with it. Would definitely stay there again!
