  • Lovely, lovely get away!

    "Beautiful, quite guest house that was spotlessly clean. Everything was well thought out. Bear claws and scones, coffee, and bottled water provided by the hosts were quite an unexpected treat! Only two comfortable places to read (chair in bedroom and chair in living room) but the owners have already indicated they appreciate our recommendation so I expect they might be taking care of that small problem. The bed and shower/bathroom were perfect. I would definitely recommend this lovely retreat."

  • great family time!

    "Our family of 11-three couples, five kids under 9-had a wonderful week at this lovely home. The kids were comfortable in the two bunk beds and had their own little space for games and videos away from the adults. The beds were all comfortable and kitchen huge with two eating areas. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner on the deck every day, and it is a very spacious place to relax and sit in the hot tub to watch the stars! (the extra refrigerator in the garage was definitely a plus!)"

  • Good Value and Great Location

    "The Columbia House was a nice place to stay while visiting the Gorge and Mt. Hood scenic areas with friends from out of town. The location is excellent -- you can walk almost anywhere for shopping, restaurants, and evening entertainment. Safeway is less than a mile away and walk or bike-able. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need including basic spices and condiments. All appliances and equipment are in good working order. The house is clean and with comfortable furniture, nice linens, and mattresses. BBQ outside is very nice. Attractive landscaping and general care is evident. The house is in excellent condition. There are also plenty of nooks, porches, and levels for individuals in larger groups to have privacy or come together for meals and social time. Having said all that, there are two points our group felt were important to make. First, two of the four bedrooms (sleeping 3 of the 8) are in the basement. This was not clear from the description and only hinted at with the photos. The basement is not finished and smells damp even during a very hot summer. Not moldy, just musty. One bedroom with a double bed is unfinished with exposed pipes that bang away when water is being used, a very low ceiling, and no window or form of ventilation. No one would consider this space a bedroom, although it is furnished like one. It is really just storage space. The other basement bedroom with the trundle is very tiny with a small window at street level that looks out to the tires in the driveway. It is finished, but not very pleasant and very noisy. The basement bathroom is finished and nice. This is the other full bath in the house, the other being on the 2nd floor. The deck off the basement is nice as well for a view of the garden and river. Just keep in mind with larger groups over 3-4 that several will be stuck in this area. There appears to be another bedroom on the second floor, but for some reason it was locked and "off limits". The second issue we had was the noise from I84. Because of the proximity to the freeway, there is a constant background sound that can be very loud while on the back deck and also from the open bedroom windows. There were times when the train and trucks combined to roar us right out of our conversation, and we are a loud city group used to urban noise. With these caveats in mind, we felt the good far overcame the bad, but we wanted others booking houses to be aware."

Oregon Travel Tips

Outdoor enthusiasts, this is the place you’ve always dreamed of. Oregon is abound with hiking trails, bike paths, kayak adventures and more than 5,900 registered campsites. The Beaver State is sure to offer anything with fresh air and exquisite views. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll have to grab a beer at one of the dozens of microbreweries in this trendsetting culture. Find a taste of every terrain on earth - vast forests, volcanic peaks, deserts and lakes. Come check out what the Pacific Northwest has to share.

Here’s a glimpse at what to do across the state:

Greater Portland

Gardens, breweries, hip coffee shops - Portland has it all. Take a stroll around America’s largest open air arts and crafts market at Portland Saturday Market. You’ll be able to enjoy live music and a variety of astonishing and homemade products from March through December. Planning a family day trip? Head five minutes west from downtown to see the Oregon Zoo, which features more than 2,000 animals and has a highly-regarded Asian elephant breeding program.

If you need a slice of urban serenity, which might sound like an oxymoron, walk through the Lan Su Chinese Garden to be proven otherwise. The bridges, open colonnades, teahouse and garden designed in the Ming Dynasty style will leave you at ease. Moreover, Portland’s live music scene boasts everything from indie rock to soulful jazz. Buy tickets to Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall that sells the house out with the Oregon Symphony and nationally-touring acts. For nature excursions, one of the best places is Forest Park, which is the nation’s largest wooded urban park that packs more than 70 miles of hiking and walking trails. You would never guess it’s only 10 minutes away from downtown. To unwind, swing by one of the 31 microbreweries in the city. You’ll be sure to get your IPA or stout fix, with everything in between. Forget about PBR for one day. There is a reason why vacationers call Portland "Beervana."

The Coast

With almost 365 miles of coastline speckled with lighthouses, the western ridge of Oregon carries outstanding beach hikes to give your calves a little workout. Soak in the tide pools at Cape Perpetua Scenic Area, or simply take in panoramic views while the waves crash against the jagged rocks. It is said this is where forest meets the sea. Come see where the legendary explorers traversed the land at the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park. It features trails along the Columbia River and Pacific Coast. Afterwards, discover the waterways a little more unconventionally in a kayak on guided tours from park rangers. Golfers, you won’t want to miss hitting a round at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, whose motto is “golf as it was meant to be.” Spot wildlife as you gaze across the roaring waves.

Mt. Hood and the Columbia River Gorge

Only an hour east of Portland, Mt. Hood stands at a towering 11,245 feet, the highest elevation in the state, and is still an active volcano. Its amazing slopes and graceful foothills mark the spot for nature lovers. Set off on hiking trails, go windsurfing, ski or snowboard, and afterward, cool off sailing or windsurfing on the mighty Columbia River.

Central Oregon

300 days of sun grace the land of Central Oregon. That means it’s almost always time to venture outside. Whether it’s for a half, full or multi-day trip, bring the crew whitewater rafting along the White Salmon, Grande Ronde, Rogue, Clackamas and Deschutes rivers. Smith Rock State Park lends sublime cliffs for rock climbers, beginner to expert. If you’re coming here in the summer, catch music stars like of Buddy Guy at the Oregon Zoo, or in the winter get ready to hit some of the best powder around at Hoodoo Ski Area, which is located atop Santiam Pass. For shoppers, there are great open-air shopping options like Cascade Village on Highway 97. Don’t get skimpy on souvenirs and self-gifts, because there’s no sales tax!

Eastern Oregon

Eastern Oregon is best described by its slowed-down and relaxed attitude on life. From Alpine-esque mountains to ghosts town to deserts, it is perfect place to get back in touch with nature. Make your way to Hells Canyon, the deepest river gorge in North America, to discover abundant wildlife. Go hiking or horseback riding at the foot of its immense mountains, or drive across the 59-mile loop of Steens Mountains for a look at a peak created from internal pressure along the fault line, and while there you may even catch a glimpse of wild horses. Don’t miss a visit to the Alvord Desert where you can take a dip in the hot springs.

Southern Oregon

Home to the deepest lake in the nation, Crater Lake, Southern Oregon is truly a sight to behold. The lake is 1,932 feet deep and has a stunning royal blue hue. Go camping with friends or family along its shores. In the winter, Crater Lake boasts a whopping 533 inches of snowfall a year, which is powder perfect for snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.The southern part of Oregon is also known for its temperate climate. It is ideal for world-renowned fishing and river rafting. Swirl your glasses with varietals that led the Abacela Winery to win “Oregon Winery of the Year,” only a short path from Pacific Highway 5. It has everything from high deserts to valleys to lakes. You can even trek through the marble cave at Oregon Caves National Monument.

One of the most bike-friendly places on the planet, the Beaver State has a nature nook for everyone. For snowboarding, beer-tasting, hiking and 360 degrees of outdoor livin’, come explore Oregon for yourself.
