The home is beautifully furnished and stocked with all details covered. Very private setting with such amazing views. We relaxed and enjoyed the views for hours, walked to the beach, went to a show at Gorge Amphitheater, just minutes away. Michelle was a great host. I have nothing but accolades for this home. Hope to enjoy again sometime! Thank you Michelle.

The most perfect home for a truly unbelievable weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We just had the most amazing weekend in this beautiful home! I'll never forget when we first walked in the front door - my breath was taken away by the gorgeous panoramic view of the Columbia River. The layout of the home is absolutely perfect for a large group - it's very spacious with an open kitchen perfect for spending time both cooking and socializing. The master bedroom is huge yet cozy with a large bathroom, and the rest of the bedrooms were clean and well stocked with linens and extra pillows. I love all the closet space in each of the bedrooms. Plenty of towels available too. The downstairs living room was super comfortable, particularly for a large group to lounge on the couch and play board games -- the assortment of games in the downstairs closet was awesome! I think we spent most of our time on the upper and lower decks - both in the hot tub and just admiring the amazing scenery! We took full advantage of the short walk down to the River every day- the house is so conveniently located. Michelle was very thorough and responsive in all of our communication, making the rental very smooth and easy. I cannot thank her enough for allowing us to stay and I do hope to come back again sometime! Thank you again, Michelle!

By Riverstone Resort Campground- Vantage
Car: necessary

The area around Vantage has been occupied by the Wanapum Native Americans since prehistory. A number of well-preserved rock-paintings have been found on the cliff walls. They also used the abundant petrified wood in the area for arrowheads and other tools. The site where these petroglyphs were found was inundated by the rising waters behind Wanapum Dam in the 1960s. About 60 of the more than 300 carvings were cut from the basalt cliff face and saved. The site is one of the most unusual fossil forests in the world, and was designated a National Natural Landmark by the National Park Service in 1965.

There are several gas stations, two restaurants, and a private RV park/campground in Vantage. The Wild Horse Wind Farm, owned by Puget Sound Energy, is located on ridge tops near Vantage.

Vantage is known for Ginkgo/Wanapum State Park, as a base camp for those attending nearby Gorge Amphitheatre, and its rock climbing.

The rock climbing in the area is one of the areas more popular forms of outdoor recreation and takes place, predominantly, in 'Echo Basin' (often mistaken for 'Frenchman Coulee' which is the basin just north of Echo, on the other side of the Old Vantage Hwy) on the basalt columns typical to the desert rimrock in the area.

Climbers started visiting the area as early as the 1950s and 60s but it wasn't until the 80s that the area really got 'discovered' and was publicized; with that of course came an exponential increase in route development.

Today the area holds over 400 established routes (both traditionally protected and bolted) ranging in difficulty from 5.0-.13c, and sees visitors almost year round.
