From the beautiful stone patio with its bubbling waterfall, firepit and 8-person hot tub, to sweeping views of the Columbia Gorge, to the luxuriously-appointed beds, every one of your senses will be pampered. Casual yet sophisticated, this home's four bedrooms and 3 baths make it a great choice for a family, multiple couples or corporate groups.
The king-size bed in the King Bedroom faces a large window with a view across the Gorge, while the Skylight Queen Bedroom has its own full bath. The Little Queen Bedroom shares a 3/4 bath with the King. Two sofabeds (queen and twin), a daybed and a twin-over-full bunk round out the sleeping accommodations. The maximum occupancy in this rental is 14.
A very well-appointed kitchen with full-size, stainless appliances makes meal prep a breeze. In the nearby town of Stevenson you'll find fresh, local produce, meats, a wide array of superb Washington wines and local brews, and just-caught, cut to order fish to bring back for the grill!
But if you'd rather not cook, there are great local restaurants a short drive away. Stevenson is tiny, but packed with shops and services to meet nearly any need, and you'll find a bookstore, a wine bar and a terrific brew pub (Walking Man) that's definitely worth a stop. Regardless, you'll want to hurry back for a toast to the day as the Gorge turns crimson in the sunset.
The location provides easy, year-round access to hiking, boating, fishing, skiing and more, yet the setting itself is secluded and free from the noise and distractions of everyday life. Surrounded by national and state parks, wildlife reserves and the magnificent Columbia River, with its world-class windsurfing and kiteboarding, you'll still be less than twenty minutes from charming Stevenson, and about 12 minutes from the iconic Bridge of the Gods.
You will find all sorts of up-to-date guide books and hiking maps, but you'll be tempted to stay put in the great room, with its stone fireplace, a 52-inch plasma TV with satellite cable and streaming Blu-ray, thanks to the reliable, high-speed internet. You'll also find a cool little internet radio in the sun room, near the telescope and ping-pong table. iPhone and Android docks will keep all your gadgets charged, too.
Babies and children welcome! You'll find a crib, booster seats, Pack-n-Play and age-appropriate toys and games.
Weddings? Yes! Cascade Retreat can accommodate outdoor wedding parties of up to 50 guests. Please call for pricing.
Corporate Retreats? Workshops? Sure! Workgroups will find plenty of space for meetings, and tables, chairs and AV equipment can be furnished on request.
Cascade Retreat is also elder-accessible and alternate-lifestyle friendly. Plenty of parking rounds out the list of reasons you'll want to choose Cascade Retreat for your next vacation or gathering.

We stayed here with 9 adults and 3 babies under 1 year old for Thanksgiving weekend this year. It was a perfect location. The property is beautiful. It is located up the hill from the river with a beautiful view of the cliffs and small area of the river visible. We even had some deer visitors one day.
The house is as advertised, lots of space and the overall house is well kept and comfortable. There were plenty of rooms for everyone and could have easily slept more if we had utilized couches or wanted to share bunk beds, etc.
The kitchen worked well. It was well stocked with kitchen basics including lots of dishes and pots/pans. There really isn't any food stored there so planning on bringing your own (flour/sugar/oil/etc). There were two separate eating areas, but the main table was big enough for all of us.
As far as kid/baby friendly - it was really easy. They have one pack-n-play, a small bassinet, and booster seats. It was easy to let the kids crawl around without worrying too much. There is also an assortment of kids toys there which was nice.
A great place for family events, hiking, and relaxation. Oh yeah, the hot tub was amazing! (They have plenty of beach towels there to use)
this house is beyond awesome. it was very clean and comfortable. the rooms were big, and comfy. fits 12 people easily. we liked the family room a lot because it has a fireplace and a big flat screen tv to watch movies. we spent a lot of time together with the family in this room. we had an amazing overall experience.
We had a wonderful relaxing time! The home was so perfect and spacious! Loved the gorgeous views!
Very relaxing and private. Dated, but super spacious home. The home worked perfectly for our stay.
Our extended family stayed at this house for three nights, six adults and three kids in total. We found the house to be charming, well-equipped and comfortable for all of us. The kitchen was well stoked with appliances, cooking utensils, and even spices. There were plenty of towels to go around, and well stocked bathrooms (we didn't take that for granted), and the instructions on how to operate everything were very clear. Our three year old son especially enjoyed the train tracks, and the older girls liked the ping pong table and exploring the big house. We all enjoyed the jacuzzi outside, located against the backdrop of the beautiful Columbia Gorge. Highly recommended!
