This one-story home offers three seating rooms and two dining areas. Once inside, you'll step into a great room featuring leather furniture, a wood-burning fireplace, and French doors leading to the backyard.

Enjoy a family feast in the formal dining room with seating for seven or host an informal meal off the kitchen bistro table for four! The kitchen is spacious and fully-stocked for a wedding cater or family potluck, and table linens will never be a burden thanks to the washer and dryer.

Past the kitchen is a sun room ideal for family or wedding photos with hardwood floors, great natural lighting, white upholstered furniture, and vaulted ceilings. A second seating room serves as the media center with a 32-inch flatscreen TV and Apple TV capability, which streams Hulu Plus, Netflix and more. WiFi is also available throughout the entire home and a record player offering iPhone compatibility is available in the main dining room.

The Ellody offers two bathrooms and three bedrooms for up to 12 guests. The master suite has a queen-size bed and private bath; the second bathroom, a king-size bed and bistro table, and in the third bedroom, you'll find a pull-out queen sleeper. Extra sleeping options include an additional sofabed, double bed, and two twin beds.

This four-acre property is simply breathtaking, offering raised garden beds, walking trails, and views of the rolling farm hills and the scenic Washougal River. Benches are scattered throughout the property, and the backyard has plenty of outdoor furniture, a charcoal grill, and a bistro table for four. Dine outdoors, entertain guests, or make your way to the private hot tub that's nestled under a romantic gazebo and decorated in twinkle lights!

By day, you can explore the grounds and swimming pools along the Washougal River or make a day trip into Portland for family festivities along the water front, trips to the Portland Zoo, and Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI).

No matter how you spend your time, this lovely chateau-style Columbia Gorge vacation rental will provide an unforgeable retreat or getaway for a memorable vacation or event!

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!

Wonderful hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Tranquility at its best, wonderful selection of books and records. The roads a bit rocky, but worth it.

Great house, but some things need to be fixed

  • 3 of 5

Great property. There were negatives listed below, but those can be fixed. The house has a management company so I think they will fix them and your stay will be totally trouble free.

This is a large home in the middle of the woods, so temper your expectations; things don't work smoothly like a house located in the city.

It's beautifully laid out with a stunning view from every room in the house. The property is surrounded by the woods and the garden has beautiful flowers. All in all very nice views and make for very nice photos.

And it's secluded and quiet.

Those are the positives. Small negatives: Many items listed as available amenities couldn't be found or are broken. For us, it was the missing hairdryer and iron, and the broken corkscrew. The wifi is available but, since we're in the middle of the woods, is very weak. Sending emails and messages, ok. Sending photos, not.

Big negative: The property comes with a separate bedroom in the back. It smelled so moldy we couldn't use it. It turned out we didn't really need it because there were only 11 of us and mostly couples, so that's ok, but if you were counting on that room, maybe because you were counting on the "maximum 13 people" occupancy, or your group has a lot of single people, then you'd be short of places to sleep.

Also big negative: The house is already low on number of bathrooms, only 2 baths. However, the one in the master bedroom, the toilet doesn't flush, and the shower has very weak water pressure (again, middle of the woods). So we were down to just one bathroom.

Many of these things can be fixed, and if they can be fixed, it'll be a very enjoyable stay.

Oh yeah and one of us saw a mouse too. Cover up your food.

Beautiful home off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from the city for a few days to reunite with old friends or family, this is the perfect spot! It had more than enough space for me and 11 of my friends. We didn't feel like we were all on top of each other, though we did have to coordinate our showers to preserve hot water. It was nice to feel secluded in our little hideaway, though we were close enough to get out to the Colombia River Gorge for a wedding and to Portland to do a little sight seeing.

Be aware that the road up to the house is possible, but not easy with a sedan. If you're renting a car, I would recommend getting something with AWD. There is also little to no reception at the house, and you will lose reception on the drive over, so don't rely entirely on Google Maps. Wifi is great though and can be used to communicate once you're there.

Wonderful character and tranquil wildlife

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful character and tranquil wildlife. Such a pleasure to be 10 mins off the beaten. Love playing in the river and watching the deer and mutiple bird families. A few normal house quirks that require a bit of maintenance. Light bulbs out, master toilet runs, broken hinge on the window seat, dining room light switch broken. Probably just never mentioned by us guest. Wonderful.
