WELCOME TO THE COLUMBIA GORGE RIVER HOUSE IN STEVENSON - AN AMAZING COLUMBIA RIVER WATERFRONT HOME in the perfect central Gorge location, a beautiful 20 minute waterfront drive west of Hood River! Great sailing, wind surfing, kite surfing, SUP stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, hiking, bird watching, and relaxing vacation spot! We pay an extra fee so that you pay NO booking fees when you book directly and securely with us. Please call Kristi at 503-806-6581 or send us an email to reserve our home.

This paradise vacation retreat is the Perfect waterfront location for relaxing at home after enjoying time on the water or taking day trips throughout the area. You will be amazed by the panoramic and breathtaking 180-degree views of the Columbia River, Cascade Mountain Range, and Cascade Locks Bridge of the Gods (featured in the movie WILD!) in this spectacular new 2500 sq ft 4 bedroom waterfront craftsman home. You will feel on vacation the minute you walk through the door and see the water and mountains thru a wall of windows and glass doors just steps away!

This beautiful 3-level home offers room to spread out and enjoy the spectacular views from all levels. It includes all new quality furniture, linens, appliances, and gorgeous slate floors. High vaulted ceilings in the main-level living area and upstairs bedrooms and bath. The main level opens to a waterfront deck and side patio area with BBQ. The lower level family room leads directly through a wall of glass doors to a stone patio with just a few steps down to the river. You will find plenty of outdoor furniture and a gas BBQ for summer grilling, alfresco dining and lounging while soaking up the views.

This home is one of only a very few located directly on the Columbia River. The easy low-bank river access from our private cove offers the ideal launching area for water sports and swimming. You will have a private front-row seat to watch all the river activities, amazing birds (osprey, eagles, cranes, gulls, geese, and ducks+), summer sailing events, SUP standup paddle and Gorge Outrigger races, Bridge of the Gods Kite Surfing, and July 4th fireworks! You can leave your car parked once you arrive, as you are in the center of it all, an easy 1-2 block stroll to shops, grocery store, cafes, restaurants/bars, award-winning Brewery, parks, windsurf and kite board beaches.

This is a great area for enjoying spas, mineral hot springs and massage, golfing, hiking, biking, rock climbing, salmon fishing, river rafting, birding, visiting wineries and museums. It is the perfect central location for short day trips to local waterfalls, the amazing Multnomah Falls, Bonneville Dam, Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Maryhill Museum, Maryhill Winery, Beacon Rock, Portland and the Oregon Coast. After a day of activities, you will love coming home to relax on your own private waterfront just in time to watch the sunset and enjoy a glass of wine or a cold beer. It does not get better than this!

Owners often stay nearby to enjoy the area's water activities and are happy to provide you with information and ideas for activities and events happening during your stay.

Why The Owner chose Mount Hood

It has always been our dream to own waterfront property, which is so rare to find on the Columbia River. We enjoy wind surfing, kite surfing, paddle boarding, and kayaking right in front of our home!

What makes this house unique

Non-stop summer water events with a front row seat from our home and property. See events list.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've had such a great week. You have a really lovely home and this location is stunning! We've had fun visiting and the kids have had a ball exploring the area; swimming, hiking and we've had fun checking out local eateries, etc. Weather has been so nice! We're sad to leave. Thank you so much.

Fascinating, Relaxing, and Fun!

  • 5 of 5

Our family group included my husband and me, our daughter and son-in-law and their two little girls, ages 1 and 3, and for two of the days, our grown son and his girlfriend. We were drawn to the property for its location close to hiking and lots of brew pubs, but what we discovered was the magnificence of the Columbia River. None of us were quite prepared for the fascinating and spectacular scenery, history, and "goings-on" in this area. The trains captivated our granddaughters (and, okay, I admit it, the rest of us, too, once we got used to them, which really did not take very long!) and the barge and boat commerce on the river was ever so interesting. The little beach at the house made for fun splashing for the little girls, and hunting for sea/river glass became a daily activity. Although we did get some great hiking time in, we also found the Bonneville Dam and Fish Ladders so worth a visit. Hood River found us at the Playground and at many of the breweries, and the trip up RT 14 to that neat little town was always enjoyable. I did not know this when we booked the house, but the Maryhill Museum is only about an hour away, and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to see the Theatre de la Mode exhibit! We also found little Stevenson to be a fun town, with some lovely shops and a grocery store with some of the friendliest employees ever! We were very appreciative to Kristi who provided our daughter with the name of a wonderful babysitter, whose services enabled the adults to have some evenings out! All in all, we were so comfortable in the house, and we were all so happy for the chance to experience the Columbia River Gorge in ways we never could have imagined.

Gorgeous views, Central location, Great Home

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults and 3 teens) stayed here for 12 days with ample space for all. The home has views of the Columbia River and Bridge of the Gods that will knock your socks off. If you are a kite surfer or wind surfer this is a wonderful place to be. If not, the hiking trails will keep you busy. The location is in the center of hundreds of hikes (with waterfalls) in Oregon and Washington. There are mineral baths nearby to relax your muscles after a long day of hiking. Everything is at your fingertips here. The town has great restaurants and breweries and cafe's just a block or two away. The grocery store just a few blocks away had everything we needed as well.

The home is modern, clean, very well stocked, and wonderfully maintained. Many backyard spaces to watch the activity on the river, dine outdoors, or just practice some yoga. Around the house are well placed lavender bushes, rosemary bushes and other beautiful plants, one feels compelled to be outdoors and is rewarded with the fragrances of the plants and trees around the home. While we were there, my son even befriended a family of ducks that he fed in the evenings after he collected many beautiful pieces of sea glass on the beach that is on the property.

The owners are helpful, attentive, but not intrusive. It was very easy to book this home and the security deposit was refunded quickly after our stay.

This is a storybook place. We will return and recommend this home to others.

Spectacular Waterfront Home and Views!

  • 5 of 5

We are so thankful you shared your beautiful home with our family! We thought we had an idea how nice the accommodations and views would be from the online pictures, but we were blown away seeing it in person. The house had everything we needed and the views are breathtaking. The furnishings are stylish and comfortable and the kitchen is very well stocked. There is plenty of outdoor seating in both sun and shade to capitalize on the spectacular setting and for watching all the sailing activities on the river. Stevenson is centrally located in the Gorge and close to all the popular sites, hiking, waterfalls, and wineries we visited each day. We also enjoyed walking to and eating at many of the local restaurants and breweries. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to return!

Longing to Return

  • 5 of 5

The moment you step into the house, the view draws you to the window! The Columbia River Gorge in all its glory beckons you from a wall of windows. You pull up a chair and think you have entered paradise. A Craftsman style, the house offers so much. Four bedroom, two bathrooms, and every amenity that a guest could need. I was pleasantly surprised. They even provided purified water in the fridge. With two bedrooms upstairs, one on the main floor and another in the furnished basement, the house allows for privacy even for a larger party. Two decks and a lovely yard full of wildflowers draw you out onto the patio and chairs. As disclosed, the train tracks are nearby, and they travel by often. Still, I found it enjoyable, and we slept closest to the tracks. Get ready for a little "rockin and rollin". The home provides earplugs, but if a guest sleeps light, they may want to reconsider their home choice. We met for a sibling reunion, so we spent days on the bikes on the Old Columbia Historic Highway and the Twin Tunnel trails. I wish I could go back and forget the bikes, and just sit on the deck for one more hour. Absolutely beautiful! Kristi was the best owner I've worked with on VRBO. Prompt, polite, and professional.

Amazing house on the river!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 stayed in this lovely Stevenson river house for 3 nights over labor day weekend. It is one of only a few properties on the water which is surprisingly rare for the area. Our concern was being a bit far from hood river, but we ended up loving the smaller town and the 20 min drive into Hood river was beautiful. Lots of hiking, water sports, wine tasting etc.. near by and most importantly, beautiful river and mountain views from the house. We would definitely go back.

Lovely House - unbeatable view

  • 5 of 5

My husband is a wind surfing enthusiast so the Columbia gorge is a great place for us to vacation. He enjoys the windsurfing and we all enjoy the many other activities available in the area. The house is lovely, fresh and clean with an absolutely beautiful view. It provides a perfect spot to relax in the sun and read a book with direct access to the water for swimming. The house is equipped with every amenity we could want. Our family has been there twice with our three teenage children and we would be happy to return again.
