About Steve and Bertie Wolfe
I am a semi retired residential contractor. I still am involved in an assortment of projects not the least of which is woodworking. My shop is adjacent to your cabin. I have been told by guests that the sound is not bothersome but I avoid any noisy work when people are in the cabin. I also have a Woodmizer bandsaw mill on the property which helps supply me with materials and firewood. Bertie is a long time resident of Oahu and maintains her home there, she is a Licensed Massage Therapist and 2 years ago went through extensive training to become a table games dealer at the brand new beautiful Ilani casino about 20 minutes from here! She loves it and the people love her! Between us we have 5 boys and 6 grandkids in Washington, California, Hawaii, and Missouri. Bertie and I bought this property in 2012 and moved into a 34' Airstream trailer parked in front of the cabin. The house was unlivable so for 2 months I worked on the cabin where we would be more comfortable. After moving in, we started renovating the house. We moved into the house in November of 2013 and that left the cabin as a guest house. We have enjoyed meeting travelers and hearing their various stories as they come and go and look forward to sharing stories with you too!
Steve and Bertie Wolfe purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Steve and Bertie Wolfe chose Venersborg
In 2012 Bertie and me came from Hawaii to Portland to choose a west coast home. There was very little available in Portland so Bertie said "What about looking across the Columbia in Washington?" so we started looking around outside Vancouver in all the little out of the way communities and fell in love with this area which is actually called "Hockinson" We were shown this property and fell in love with it but the house was in terrible condition. Others that looked at it wanted to tear it down and start over but there was so much history here in this 1947 brick farmhouse we decided to take on the project. With Bertie making the important decisions and me using my experience and equipment we made a very comfortable home from this poor old brick house! So... There is much blood, sweat, and tears here but were glad we did it. We're also glad its done (nearly)
What makes this Cabin unique
Travelers who choose this cabin for whatever their particular needs are will most appreciate the quiet, solitude, and easy comfort inside, and also outside on the covered deck. There is room to spread out in bed or on the couch, kick back in the biggest chair I have ever seen, and watch HDTV on the 32" flatscreen TV. If you enjoy cooking, all the basics are there. If you are escaping you likely wont see anyone unless you invited them.

Had a wonderful stay!
Very quiet and peaceful! Had a wonderful time!
Cozy cabin with beautiful view.
This is a fine cabin for a couple to stay at while exploring the country NE of Vancouver, WA. Bertie and Steve did a great job in setting up the cabin for convenience and comfort. They were very available for meeting our needs and for information.
We totally enjoyed our stay and hope to stay again when we visit this area.
James it was our pleasure to have you here. You are welcome back anytime!

There are 3 large reservoirs 20 miles away for fishing, and power boats..The nearby mountains are well known for deer and elk hunting.
