October Stay at the High House - Skamania Coves

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently had the opportunity to stay the weekend at The Resort at Skamania Coves in the new High House. This was our second stay at the resort and it once again was a delightful experience. We invited two family members along and my wife and I were proud to recommend and share these amazing accommodations with them.

The finishes in the High House were impeccable and provided a relaxing, comfortable ambiance with class, style and space. With all the conveniences of home, we barbecued one night and made a spaghetti feast the next. Although the house had HD Satellite TV available, we found ourselves having too much fun chatting, playing board games and relaxing to want to turn on the tube. The wireless internet connection was nice to have for enjoying music via internet radio on the iPod dock stereo provided.

With our trip being at the beginning of October, the winds were crisp and powerful, and the cool Gorge air provided the perfect setting for taking a dip in the hot tub under the stars. During the day, we visited a nearby vineyard and took in some of the surrounding Gorge sights. Both mornings we were able to grab a cup of coffee and meander to the river shoreline to sit and catch the amazing sunrises.

At the end of the weekend, we were sorry to see the time had passed so quickly. We can't wait to once again return to Skamania Coves. Next time we think we would like to stay in the River House. Thank you for a wonderful weekend retreat!

Everything has been thought of!! Simply show up and relax.. Awesome that it is less than 1 hour from Portland... Heated floors are a huge plus!!

The outside shower next to the hot tub is great. A panoramic view of the river, gorge, and mountains is something I will never forget!
