The Ellody offers two bathrooms and three bedrooms for up to 12 guests.

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).

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!

A Picturesque Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay here! The minute we drove up the driveway it was like we had entered an old Victorian manner. The house was beautiful and spacious. I found it very clean with all the extra pillows and blankets my family of 11 needed. The view of the Christmas tree farm in the back was very charming and the flowers around the house where beautiful. The hottub was well kept. I have no complaints. I felt like I was staying somewhere special, not just a hotel or a house. Lovely.

Breath taking views

  • 5 of 5

Our son was having a small wedding in the area and we need some place for the whole wedding party to stay and this place was perfect. We loved that everyone had a bed and the kitchen had everything we needed to fix the reception dinner.

Our favorite room was the sun room, everyone loved chilling in that room, followed by the spa, followed by the beautiful view, followed by....well you get the idea.

The only thing I would suggest is if you have a container marked recycling, we found the barn that had the recycling bins after we put all the garbage in the one bag. Thank for the stay, I hope we made it easy to clean up after us. Cheers

Washougal Stay

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this is very nice property. It is a little ways out of town, but that affords some privacy as well. The house is definitely large enough for 12 people. You need to bring your own items for cooking as what is there is very limited. It is a great place for a large family to stay at.

Privacy and near a water. What more could you ask for!?

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home. Family had a great time. This home is definitely for relaxing and enjoying yourself and your family quietly or loudly since the nearest neighbor is quieted a distance. Same owners have a guest house that was past some trees but nobody seemed to be in it at the time we were there.

We stayed for a wedding in Oregon that was 30 minutes away so it was perfect location to Troutdale. Everyone love the room that was surrounded by windows. You can see the hills and trees as it was perfect for drinking coffee and relaxing, talking, or reading. This would be the perfect summer home.

Only complaint honestly was the master bathroom. I loved the rockery in the shower, but it emitted a sulphuric smell when the water hit it. Originally I thought it was the water, but it turned out to be the shower stall itself. Beautiful to look at, but the odor was a bit much for my wife. Didn't bother me too much.

Christmas reunion house

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week prior to Christmas 2016. House is large enough to have slept our eventual 10 comfortably. Location is great if you have family in Washougal, Camus, or Vancouver. Washougal river road is windy, but well maintained with Washougal only 10 mins away. Great location just above the Washougal river, can't see too much of the river but you can hear it when outside. Very quiet location and very beatiful view out the back window.

House is very roomy and open. We didnt use the TV at all, but it is Apple TV if you were to use it and the directions are there to walk you through. Internet worked flawlessly. Phone service is difficult for cell service, but there is a land line at the house. My family has Verizon, we seemed to have the best connectivity w/phones.

Overall, a very pleasant stay with only some minor issues with the house that I disscussed with a very proactive management team.

Beautify property in a beautiful area

We had five of us in town for a Spartan Race, which was only 2.5 miles from this location. Weather was perfect. House was lovely. Location was great. Overall just very happy.
