Why Kristi Versari chose Stevenson
It was always our dream to own waterfront property, which is so rare to find on the Columbia River. Stevenson is the perfect central Columbia Gorge location where we and our guests enjoy wind surfing, kite surfing, paddle boarding, and kayaking right in front of our home (as will you)!

Amazing!!! Beautiful views, perfect location, close to everything, comfortable updated home, great communication with owner!!! Kristi, Thank you for a great experience on the Columbia Gorge.
Amazing place but the train took getting used to.
The property is amazing with beautiful views. It was very clean and well maintained.
Only negative was the proximity to the busy train tracks - which I guess is all along the gorge.
Owners were very responsive. Thanks!
Excellent all the way around!
From initial communication, to pre-stay details and planning, to the experience itself - this was fantastic! The property was clean and well maintained. Location in the small town of Stevenson, WA on the river and with close access to all sorts of outdoor activities was phenomenal. Whitewater rafting, hiking to waterfalls, kayaking, segway tour, kite surfing viewing ... lots to do in the area and we were happy to call this place home while we explored. Recommended!
Spectacular !!! Amazing views !!!!
Thank you Kristi for sharing your beautiful home with us ! This was a fun family reunion and your home accommodated all of us in such a magnificent setting. We had views of the Gorge, windsurfers, and the Bridge of Gods all from the porch ! Enjoyed playing games, eating outside, fishing from the shoreline and searching for special rocks and colored glass with our grandson. We were just a brief walk from the many delicious eating places in Stevenson. Couldn't have asked for a better setting for our vacation !!!!
Fascinating, Relaxing, and Fun!
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
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.
