Property description

ANOTHER 5 STAR REVIEW!!! Thank you wonderful guests! There's nothing like Summer of the River!!! "Peace of the River" vacation rental home offers Lodge like comfort and large wraparound deck. Great relaxing time for all! Get your "PEACE of the RIVER" THIS YEAR! Reserve your dates today. Have a Family gathering or Romantic Retreat. Plan a Guys Fishing Trip, or a Girls Weekend, Great for 2-3 couples, or small groups. Book your stay today! Throw your hectic schedule out the window! Unplug & Relax in our comfy environment. So quiet you can hear yourself think. Satellite TV, internet, WiFi available but also great place for taking a 'Tech Time Out!' Enjoy your favorite beverage on the deck as the 'river parade' floats by in summer. Walk to the local 'swimming hole'. Bring tubes & float the river during summer. Read (wide variety of books here), do yoga or power nap your way to rejuvenation! Ease on in and make yourself at home today! Great room w/FP. Modern kitchen. Master BR (queen) w/full bath on main level. Also main level smaller 2nd BR, queen futon+hall bath w/shower. Downstairs spacious den w/FP & large windows overlooking river accommodates additional sleepers on double futon + 3/4bath. Washer/dryer. NO SMOKING. NO PETS. Best for up to 6 people. High bank waterfront, not recommended for young children, but we let families decide. Many families with children of different ages have stayed without incident. We just want to use an abundance of caution for the safety of the young ones. Things to do: Try your luck at fishing. Visit local antique shops in nearby Kalama. Enjoy day trips to Mt. Saint Helens (volcano, lava caves), Portland, quaint Astoria, OR; Treehouse Island Zipline in Silverlake, the Columbia River falls, the Outlet Malls up I-5N to Centralia for shopping. For a special treat plan a visit to the Zoological Wildlife Conservation Center in nearby Rainier, OR to see the Sloths and other interesting wildlife. BUSINESS DETAILS for renting this property.

So if you choose the "BOOK IT NOW" option please provide ALL your contact info plus a copy of your driver license & or passport (for our out of country guests) so I can prepare your personalized Rental Agreement and upload it to the website for your approval within the 24 hour countdown.

Preference given to 3+ day rentals. Holiday weekends 3 day minimum. Reservation confirmed upon receipt of 50% rent, approved rental agreement & Property Damage Protection (nonrefundable).

We often see herons fishing the shoals below, eagles flying overhead and once we saw an elk herd on the ridge across the river! And as noted by VRBO...Relax and Unwind in Southwest Washington.The scenic area of southwest Washington offers breathtaking scenery, sandy beaches, small port towns and all the activities of the Northern Cascade Mountains close by. The area is known for its fertile estuaries and centuries-old landmarks. Charted by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in 1805, southwest Washington was considered the most desirable area to settle west of the Rocky Mountains. It now offers a delightful escape from city life for vacationers looking to relax and enjoy the spectacular local scenery.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We LOVE the quiet natural beauty of this area and we find it a very restful get away from our hectic chaotic lifestyle plus we enjoy the modern & comfortable lodge-like feeling of this home. When we are here we go 'off schedule', reading, napping & watching the 'river parade' and doing whatever suits us whenever we feel like it.

Why the Owner Chose Kalama, WA, USA:
So many of the homes along the river are jammed together but this great place sits on over 4 acres, is nestled in the trees and feels secluded and private.
