About Jim Miller
I am a retired engineering professor and We have University affiliations with Michigan, Michigan State, and Stanford. I am also the President of J M Miller Engineering, Inc. in Ann Arbor Michigan, but real love is being on the Columbia at this special, little known location.
Jim Miller purchased this House in 2010
Why Jim Miller chose Clatskanie
The property is in a private group of houses and farms owned by myself and my wife's family, all adjacent to one another and all with docks on the river. Our farmland and marshland for waterfowl hunting is on one side of the road, and the river, boating, fishing, and house are on the other. I love being in the heart of salmon fishing on the Columbia, yet not in the middle of a tourist area. My wife and I take joy in offering the nicest of our houses to share with you. Our Cousin Holly lives nearby and will be an amazing hostess to you in our absence, and her husband Mark can fill you in on the local fishing secrets.

Family holiday gathering
The property is beautiful. So relaxing on the River. Loved all the wildlife we got to enjoy watching. Jim was friendly and willing to make any needs we had happen. We talked about some changes that would help make the house a bit more comfortable and he was anxious to get them done. Would be wonderful to be there in warmer weather.
Columbia River living
The property is set in an idyllic location on the Columbia River. We thoroughly enjoyed the property and the opportunities to enjoy the river. The sunrises and sunsets are amazing. Jim is a first class owner who is incredibly attentive and thoughtful to guests. Outstanding!
This home was clean and beautifully decorated in a fish/ duck theme. We loved being right on the river and clatskanie had the services we needed. We found it a great place to use as home base for our day trips (banks-verninia state trail and astoria/ fort Stevens). Nearby beaver falls was worth the short winding drive. The neighborhood itself was very quiet and just what we needed. Home was well stocked but could use some more coffee mugs, bowls, and a kettle in the kitchen. Home was spacious for our family of 7. While Jim was not in town during our stay he was easy to reach via phone and helpful. Boathouse and fishing was a great experience for us but we found the boathouse in very filthy condition from previous renters with rotting food and bait left in there and kitchen knives in the boathouse as well. We didn't catch any fish :( but we don't know what we were doing.
My two sons and two grandsons and I had a wonderful week at Jim’s Sportsman’s Paradise. So much so they’ve come up with new reasons to go again and then repeat this trip. I think I agree with them too.
We were very happy with everything involved in our stay. The property was everything and more than we had hoped for. If we come out again we will definitely try and book this property again. Breath taking views, clean comfortable and relaxing. For our first family vacation we were beyond pleased
Great stay wish i had more time
Mount St. Helens park and the city of Portland are both within 45 minutes to the East. The famous port of Astoria and the Oregon coast cities of Seaside and Canon Beach are 45 minutes to the West. Excellent salmon and other fishing is out your door and 50 miles either direction on the Columbia RIver. Charter fishing captains can meet you at our dock or within 30 minutes at one of the marinas. Fishing towns such as Cathlamet, Kalama, Rainer-Longview, and the famous "Buoy 10" are all within 30-45 min by boat
