Lakefront vacation home with kitchen and balcony
Riverfront vacation home on 30 acre farm. Well suited for Work Crews, Group-family-sport retreats and Wedding functions. On the beautiful Columbia with views up and down the river. This is a large 3500 sq ft guest house with dock and outstanding views of the river. With 5+ bedrooms, 4 baths and sleeping capacity for up to 15 Kitchen-Dining area seats 16. Electric heat WITH A/C. Corporate discounts and direct billing possible. We request a 4 day minimum rental since the 10 hour cleaning time makes short stays less feasible. FOR SHORTER STAYS, OUR OTHER SMALLER HOUSE "SPORTSMAN PARADISE - COLUMBIA RIVER" which will sleep 6-8. Secluded but only, 1 hr from Portland Airport and 45+ min to historic Astoria Oregon, and Washington beach and coastal towns, for day trips. This is also a favorite Seattle-Portland long weekend escape. Many sports: boating, sailing, paddle boarding, fishing, hiking and touring. Boat ramp-dock (10 ft). Business Office Ready We often rent to subcontractor work crews from Wauna (20 min), Longview (20min), Vancouver (40 min), Portland (60 min). Fiberoptic 120MBS Internet. DirectTV, Netflix, and LASER PRINTER. Retreat here for quiet view of river, wildlife, sunsets and Mt. St. Helens. Fully Furnished The house is fully equipped with all clean linens and hotel type toiletries upon arrival. Daily made service is not provided but available. A full kitchen is provided including many of the condiments you might need. Check our stock of ketchup, mustard, steak and fish seasoning, spices, olive oil and mayo type condiments before bringing your own. People tend to leave what they don't need there for the next group. But the local Safeway grocery is only 10 minutes in Clatskanie and open until 11:00PM. The deck is great for: entertaining with a gas barbecue, toasting the sunsets, or watching the waterfowl and eagles. Life jackets and a few fishing poles are available. Guest access Guests have use of the entire house, dock, 5 acre lawn, and Bboat ramp usage is also included. A few water toys are available to to use. A few life jackets for adults and children are available but you may want your own for your kids. Life jackets always needed for water sports. Swimming off dock available for good swimmers or those with life jackets, but water too deep for wading. Guest interaction There is a nearby host available to handle any issues that may arise during the stay Neighborhood overview This is a rare rural-farm neighborhood area on the lower Columbia where the homes are total river front without crossing a road to get to the river. Your dock starts 30 feet from the house front door. Paved roads are available for country biking (but no bike lanes), and you can hike within our 100 acres of foothill timberland providing outstanding views. Fishing Guidance - Chartering I recommend Paul Ambrose as a great charter fishing choice (pauleambrose@ He is also at I have also talked to the folks at "Gone Catchin Guide" Service . Oregon hunting and fishing licenses and limited gear are available 10 minutes away in Clatskanie. Also, Bob's Sports in Longview (30 minutes) is the Largest fishing supply selection in northwest. You can fish the Columbia River with either an Oregon or Washington fishing license. I recommend doing some charter fishing if you don't have your own boat. The charter captains know how to fish them best. Charters are available in Longview, Astoria and a few other locations along the river. Contact me for recommendations. Getting around Off street parking for cars, boat trailers or RV. We have RV power and water available but not sewer hook-ups House manual Please - No Smoking in house.

5/5 Excellent

Fishing vacation
Great private location. Very clean. Lots of pantry amenities. Jim was very helpful and generously let me take from the garden. We had a great time. We’ll be back.

5/5 Excellent

Roomy retreat on the water.
The owner made every attempt to accommodate our family function. the property is well maintained with a nice view of the water and plenty of room to spread out . I look forward to bringing friends and family there in the future.

5/5 Excellent

Can't say enough about the whole experience!
Loved everything about our stay and this house and property. Manager was so kind, he even let us raid his garden and we ate squash and salad from it. So good! The property is amazing and gigantic. Watching the birds and fishing off the dock was so relaxing. We'll be back for sure!

4/5 Good

Great price with a lot to do
The house is large and there is a lot to do. While we were there, they set up disc golf in the surrounding property, which was fun. Also, kayaking was fun. The two complaints we had were that there are only four bedrooms (not five as stated in the listing) and that there was not nearly enough toilet paper stocked. But overall, I would recommend this place!

5/5 Excellent

Great house on the Columbia River
Jim's house was a great experience! The location was right on the Columbia River and Jim was very easy to reach and lives right down the street. He let us borrow a kayak and we were able to explore some of the marsh areas and see a lot of wildlife. Although the house feels very secluded, it was only 10 minutes from town and 10 minutes from a beautiful hike at Beaver Falls. The house was well-equipped with kitchen utensils, linens, towels, etc. and had a lot of room for everyone. We only have 6 adults stay this time, but the house can definitely fit many more. We really enjoyed our experience and would definitely book this house again with hopefully more sunny days to enjoy the dock more!
