About Charity Wood

We are newly weds, going on almost 2 years. We've been together 4 years now and are best friends! We have 4 kids between us, ages 5, 6, 13, and 19. We're so fortunate that we all have bonded so closely together as a blended family! I was a stay at home mom for 12 years! Then I started my own business, doing eyelash extensions and it took off! I love what I do! I have since expanded my business to include spray tanning, eyebrow extensions, and sugaring (a form of hair removal, superior to waxing). My husband has a very creative mind! He's even created a line of Organic body care (lotions, oils, body wash, scrubs, deodorants, etc).

We will be getting into the Real Estate business this year and are very excited about that!

We love the outdoors! Fishing, crabbing, hiking, and camping! We also love traveling! As our youngest kids get a little older, we're excited to have the opportunity to show them the world!

We LOVE our vacation home and we hope you do too!

Charity Wood purchased this house in 2009

Why Charity Wood chose Washington

We have a very unique, custom built home! It's located close enough to town to make a quick trip to the store, yet far enough away from it all to relax & enjoy the peace and tranquility!

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the peace of the river and wildlife! You will also enjoy the Theater Room with the 10 ft HD screen with Projector & the Xbox game room!

Great venue, owners, very well equipped and maintained

  • 4 of 5

We had a weekend planning retreat here and it was nearly perfect for our purposes. I think it could also work really well for events, especially extended family get-togethers or reunions since the separate X-Box game room and theater are amazing and would be hits with kids, and there's also a gazebo with fire pit and gas grill. The owner was excellent to deal with, very responsive and accommodating.

There's not a big yard since the lot the house sits in is quite narrow. The interior is gorgeous with a huge cathedral ceiling in the living room and hardwood floors throughout - very nice, just with the potential of getting loud and "echo-y," especially if your group might include a number of active kids who could get cooped up inside if the weather were bad. Acoustics in the living room made it hard for some in our group to hear everything going on in our meetings. Not a big problem though, we just had to remember to speak loudly and clearly enough.

All in all we had a great time at Woods' River Lodge, would seriously consider it again, and heartily recommend it!

Perfect birthday celebration get away!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the lodge to celebrate two Jan. family birthdays. One thing in our favor was that it did not require a three-night min. for the holiday weekend like many others we looked at. Even though we could have easily stayed there another night or two or three!! We celebrated with food, drinks, football, movies, games, and dancing the night away! Lots of fun and laughter was had by all!! The lodge was a perfect place with plenty of room for our families from eastern and western Washington to gather together. The open floor plan was perfect, with plenty of room for everyone. We enjoyed getting cozy by the fireplace and watching football on the BIG screen in the media room. We started the weekend off by grilling some tri-tip for dinner. For the Hawks game, we grilled some jalapeño poppers and picked up some pizza and wings from Sahara Pizza nearby. It was delicious! Everyone had a BLAST! No complaints! Property was clean, comfortable, and well-stocked. I liked the fact that there were everyday staples and items in pantry for use. We've rented properties in the past where there was nothing in the cupboards. So it was nice to have some salt, pepper, sugar for coffee, a seasonings cupboard, ketchup, and other items available to use. Everyone slept comfortably and enjoyed a hot shower in the morning;) Charity was a pleasure to communicate with. She made the whole reservation process a breeze. She went above and beyond in accommodating us and making sure our weekend getaway was an enjoyable one. Customer satisfaction is her top priority. I would highly recommend this property:)

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

The entire experience was a wonderful one for our Christmas holiday! We stayed thru the Christmas week with family from all over the country and it was the perfect retreat for all of us. The home was well kept, exactly what was communicated and Charity the home owner even decorated it for Christmas for us! The kitchen was fully equipped and the home really was ideal for a multiple family situation. Overall I couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our holiday!

Great family reunion spot

  • 4 of 5

Twelve of us truly enjoyed our Thanksgiving family stay. We found the kitchen perfect for our preparations, and the house truly comfortable for "hanging out". The "media" room could use tech updating, (e.g., options for football watching at a minimum), but we enjoyed board games instead. . Thank you.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry, but after receiving your review, we checked the theater room and discovered that the wiring had been tampered with. Always feel free to notify me during your stay and I will make every effort to correct the issue immediately. We do have the Dish Network Flex Pack and the Action package add on, which includes ESPN. We are huge sports fans and know how important watching games is! :) I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise. I hope to have you all stay again!

Cozy Fall Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful Amazing experience all around! The natural wood, landscaping, Amenities, and more are simply wonderful! Quiet area and super relaxing. The fireplace is amazing, but use caution it can warm up the up house VERY well. The river roars in the back yard, you can hear a faint train in the distance, and the feeling of complete relaxation swarms through your body and mind. I got married here with a very small group of people (18) and weddings can be stressful...I just felt nothing but comfort when I looked into the backyard.

The house is fully stocked with items. Just remember you are borrowing a house, so somethings are just not included or break and owners don't know. The can opener didn't work....BUT luckly you are still close to town or you just learn to improvise. Movie theater does not have an HDMI cable connector, so if you want to show something on the BIG screen use the game room.

The fire pit was used every day, and yes we had a slight issue with the fire pit....the owners were AMAZING at communication. Owners answered all questions and made sure I felt comfortable about everything in the house and my experience. I truly THANK THEM for being so available.

In the end....Rustic, Cozy, Fun, Comfortable, and will a forever amazing lasting impression to anyone that come to stay at this house.

Excellent !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at this property for our daughters wedding. It was the perfect house to host several family members for a great get together. Charity was absolutely fabulous to work with. She made sure all of our needs were taken care of and that our family was comfortable. The entire stay was AWESOME! The house was very clean, accommodating, and spacious. It was fully stocked with everything we needed and more. My family definitely enjoyed the home theater and x-box room. Having a designated place for entertainment was a huge bonus. We will for sure plan to stay at this property again. Thank you so much Charity for making our stay one of the best ever.
