About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 4

Rustic luxury with attention to detail. Eva's Cottage is comfortable and cozy, with many thoughtful touches like the down comforter and pillows on the queen-size, custom-built log bed (truly one of a kind!), and travertine/river rock shower. Relax by the massive stone, wood-burning fireplace, or in the hot tub just outside the greatroom. With wireless internet, internet TV and landline, you'll be as connected as you want, or need to be. This one-bedroom, one-bath, cottage is perfect for a couple or a solo visitor. Alternate lifestyle- and dog-friendly.

From the greatroom, antique casement windows overlook the wraparound porch. The nook is a quiet, serene spot for reading or sleeping, and the kitchen is completely furnished to accommodate serious cooks, as well as those seeking a vacation from cooking.

In the well-stocked kitchen you'll find a programmable drip coffee maker, coffee filters, coffee grinder, a French Press, a Keurig, microwave, toaster oven, electric water kettle, placemats, cloth napkins, tea towels and a British hotel teapot with a copper cozy. All this is in addition to a full set of cookware, flatware, glasses, gas grill dinnerware for four, and full-size appliances. Amenities at Eva's Cottage also include toiletries, firewood, and dog towels/cleanup kit (your pooch is welcome for a small nightly fee).

If you need entertainment beyond watching the deer grazing nearby, you'll find internet TV (there is no other TV reception; the trees are so large they block line of sight to satellites) in greatroom, a TV/DVD/stereo in the bedroom, lots of games and books. Read about the fascinating woman who created this little slice of heaven which bears her name!

Eva's Cottage sits just a few steps from our sandy beach, down a sloping path. It is an idyllic location with many eagles, heron, hawks, and deer, a large 20' deep swimming hole and year-round waterfall. The land surrounding the Cottage and across the river is private and protected. The temperate climate is never too hot or too cold. [Note: beach is shared by residents of nearby home, but they are quiet and respectful of our guests. Please note also that beach fires and fishing from the beach are not allowed (there is great fishing just 1/2 mile downriver, on the other side of the Salmon Falls bridge).]

This 28.5 acre retreat includes a large and rare stand of old-growth Douglas fir, Western cedar, hemlock and maple; some of which are estimated to be more than 300 years old. Eva's descendants steward the land and maintain the forest with an eye to future generations' enjoyment. You'll have access to four trails along the property, so be sure to bring your hiking boots!

A good supermarket, drugstore, and other services are about 14 miles away in the town of Washougal. The location provides easy, year-round access to hiking, boating, fishing, skiing and more. The Washougal is one of only two completely unpolluted rivers in the region. It offers fine fishing, whitewater rafting, canoeing and kayaking as it flows into the mighty Columbia River just a few miles to the south. All manner of outdoor activities are close by, yet the setting itself is secluded and free from the noise and distractions of everyday life.

About Vacasa, WA - Columbia Gorge Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Eva's cabin is simple, sweet, well-maintained and sits on a perfect piece of property. The space isn't large but every bit is used well so it is very comfortable. The windows (which all work and have screens!) are generous so the home is bright. Exceptional shower. With the windows open you can hear the river bubbling. Sweet swimming hole and beach area; pleasant porch as well as a back yard seating area, table and chairs with hot tub. Quiet. Peaceful. Green. Lovely. The information about the history of the property and cabin is really fabulous. The trails the owner has set up that share the property so generously are well maintained, marked and laid out. The family's intention to care for this property is clear and admirable. Don't miss this great retreat!

Very very special place....

  • 5 of 5

A historic property luxuriously restored. Even though we could drive there after work in Portland, it felt as far away from civilization as could be. The other rental next door doesn't alter that sensation because of the placement of the homes. Access to the sandy beach was perfect and you could spend HOURS there, just chillin'. The hot tub was perfect at the end of the day. Can't emphasize enough the beauty of this property, inside and out.

An amazing getaway!

So close to Portland, so far far away....

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully restored old cabin with high quality furnishings, especially in the kitchen and bath. Plenty of extra linens and cooking tools. The shower and fireplace are over the top beautiful. The close access to the beautiful sandy beach is five stars all by itself. The hot tub is just delightful. You are never far from the sweet sound of the river! Very dog friendly.

Beautiful scenery outside

  • 3 of 5

Outside was great! Although the people that live nearby sure do seem a little friendly walking up to the property. Inside was a bit of a disappointment. The place wasn't very clean. The firewood was not seasoned. The hot tub needed water. The couch, aka futon, broke when we sat on it (I fixed it). Warning to anyone that wants to fish, don't, it's illegal from the property. A local that decided to use our chairs let me know this. There are some great hikes a short distance from the cottage and the local store a bit away is full of friendly people that will answer questions and let you use their phone when you aren't given the gate code. We will always have the good memories of our honeymoon here but would not return.

Housekeeping Marginal - Heavenly Site

  • 3 of 5

We were so pleased when we arrived at the Cabin on the upper Washougal River. The Cabin is perfect for 2 & the river view is gorgeous. The interior of the Cabin is well appointed. However, housekeeping by Vacasa is unacceptable. Spiderwebs & cobwebs on the ceilings & in the corners, dirty floors & mouse droppings on the kitchen table, counters, window sills & even on the bed covers was a disappointment. The hot tub was not well cleaned either. For needles & bits of detritus required us to clean it out before using it. Seek assurance from Vacasa that the Cabin has been thoroughly cleaned & that you'll be compensated if you arrive to find it otherwise.

Owner's Response: This home has been deep cleaned since this reservation. Mouse bait stations are in place to help eradicate that issue, and the hot tub has been cleaned. Thank you!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Great spot on the river, surrounded by trees. Very clean. Perfect little spot to escape the city. Bring your own wood if you plan to use the wood burning fireplace.
