About the Property

Rare Columbia Riverfront Home in Perfect Private Location

WELCOME TO THE "COLUMBIA GORGE RIVER HOUSE" - a beautiful and rare Columbia River Waterfront Home in historic downtown Stevenson, WA - the perfect central Columbia Gorge location a 20-minute waterfront drive west of Hood River. You will be awed by the panoramic and breathtaking 180-degree views of the Columbia River, Cascade Mountain Range, and Cascade Locks Bridge of the Gods (featured in the movie WILD!) in this spectacular new 2500 sq ft 4 bedroom 2 bath craftsman home. You will feel on vacation the minute you walk through the door and see the water and mountains thru a wall of windows and glass doors just steps away! Our waterfront patios and deck offer you a front row seat to relax and take in all the river activities including summer sailing competitions. With only a few steps down to the river you can easily swim, windsurf, paddle board, and kayak directly from our private cove. NOTE: We pay an extra fee so that you pay NO booking fees when you book directly and securely with us. Please call Kristi at 503-806-6581 or send us an email to reserve our home.

This beautiful craftsman home offers room for your family to spread out and enjoy the spectacular views from all levels. It includes all new quality furniture, linens, appliances, and gorgeous slate floors. High vaulted ceilings in the two upstairs bedrooms and bath and in the main-level living area. The main level includes one bedroom, bath, kitchen/dining, living room with stone fireplace, and "tiki bar" room which opens to the waterfront deck and side patio area with lounge chairs, picnic table, and BBQ. The lower waterfront level includes the 4th bedroom and large family room which leads directly through a wall of glass doors to a stone patio with just a few steps down to the river. You will find plenty of outdoor furniture and a gas BBQ for summer grilling, alfresco dining, and lounging.

You can leave your car parked once you arrive, as you are in the center of it all, an easy 1-2 block stroll to Stevenson shops, grocery store, cafes, restaurants, pubs, award-winning Brewery, parks, windsurf and kite board beaches. After a day of activities, you will love coming home to relax on your own private waterfront just in time to watch the sunset and enjoy your favorite beverage. It does not get better than this!

This is a great area for enjoying spas, mineral hot springs and massage, golfing, hiking, biking, rock climbing, salmon fishing, river rafting, birding, visiting breweries, wineries and museums. It is the perfect central location for short day trips to many local waterfalls, the amazing Multnomah Falls, Bonneville Dam, Dog Mountain, Cape Horn, Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Maryhill Museum, Maryhill Winery, Beacon Rock, Portland and the Oregon Coast.

Please Note: The railroad runs near the river through the gorge. Most of us quickly get used to the sounds and movements, but light sleepers may be bothered by the trains. Owners often stay nearby to enjoy the area's water activities and are happy to provide you with information for activities and events happening during your stay. Tours can also be arranged to visit wineries, breweries, waterfalls, hiking locations, and much more.
