The house is fully equipped with all clean linens and hotel type toiletries upon arrival. Daily made service is not provided but available.

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.

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

Best getaway
We had the most amazing stay. Jim was the best host and made sure we had all we needed. He was extremely helpful and always there to answer any questions. The house was perfect too! We got to fish off our dock and relax in the privacy of our own space. There was plenty of room for my family and everyone enjoyed the area. We are already looking forward to going back soon!

5/5 Excellent

Sportsmans Paradise
This place was fantastic! Very clean. Location was perfect for us as we wanted somewhere a little private. It's on a dead end road and was very quiet. Owner communication was superb and friendly. Can't wait to come back!

5/5 Excellent

Incredibly Scenic, Well Kept Property
I was looking for a relatively secluded place to gather and simply visit and relax with extended family, including a 4mo old nephew and father in law in his 80s. It was fantastic! The kitchen was large and generously outfitted, the house is comfortable and spacious, and Jim was a great host. He let us borrow his kayak for paddling around on the river, and even shared some produce from a small community garden across the street. And the location is incredibly scenic. I would absolutely recommend it if you’re looking for a quiet getaway.

5/5 Excellent

Father’s Day Special
Having my two sons and three grandsons for a week is a great way to celebrate Father’s Day. Jim and his son couldn’t have done anything more to make the stay anymore pleasant. This wasn’t our first stay and not likely to be our last. And the best of the trip was the youngest grandson landing a shiny chrome steelhead on our last drift for sockeye.
