    Family Connection
    Our family had a wonderful time at the Lewis River Zen Retreat. There was plenty of room for our large family. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed to make some incredible family meals. The view from the deck is incredible and the river was cold but so refreshing on a hot summer's day! We'll definitely be back

    5/5 Excellent

    Family vacation
    The house is beautiful and really spacious, more than enough room for everyone. The setting on the river is absolutely gorgeous! The whole family, young and old, had such a good time playing on the river. (We brought paddle boards, a raft and tubes) The only possible downside would be that there is no AC, but it wasn't a problem for us because it wasn't overly hot while we were here, it cooled down really good at night.

    5/5 Excellent

    Fabulous Solitude and Plenty of Room.
    If it is beautiful scenery and solitude you want, this IS the place. Gorgeous view of the river, wonderful lawn and decks for hanging out and enjoying the outdoors. Our family had a fabulous energizing retreat at this beautifully appointed large home. We boated on the river and roasted hot dogs and s’mores.. Saw deer, bunnies, squirrels and many birds in the lush greenery surrounding us. Perfect place to unwind and regroup. The two story house has two living rooms, one on each floor and plenty of room for adults and kids to have their own spaces. There is plenty of parking (easily 8 cars) , if you have a couple of families, or adult children driving in from other areas, as we did, parking can be a problem...but not here! One large bathroom and three large private bedrooms downstairs, and a bed in the stair area, plus couches if needed are downstairs. Upstairs has a wonderful master bedroom and bath, and an additional bathroom, the living room has moe comfortable couches, great place for an afternoon nap! The apartment has two twin beds and it’s own bathroom.... really cute too!. Very comfortable home, and Petra was very accommodating as well. Our vacation was all I had hoped for and MORE, don’t miss this one! Did I mention the river view can’t be beat!! Thank YOU Petra for sharing your little piece of heaven on earth!

    5/5 Excellent

    Great place to get back to nature and spend some time
    This was a wonderful place to spend a little time in nature. The house is perfect for families and groups that enjoy both nature and spending time together. It's comfortable and cozy. The view is amazing, and the outside space is even better than the inside space. Petra is so responsive, and great work with. Would definitely visit again!

    Wonderful Woodland Nov. 14-19, 2019
    Overall the home and property is beautiful and right on the Lewis River with a convenient drive to and from town/I-5 like the listing claims. This was a work trip so the home was half way from Portland and half way to Longview which was ideal. Also, the owner very kindly arranged a box of Eco logs for the fire place so we could have a fire each night. We were asked to replace what we used. So bring your own fire wood as needed FYI. We ate at Rosie's Diner (Woodland) for breakfast (very good) and (Woodland) The Fat Moose for a burger (also very good). Safeway is near as well as gas, a casino and McMennamin's Kalama Lodge restaurant and gift shop (also very good), Kalama has a lovely downtown shopping district which was open on Sunday (much appreciated!). "Bedrooms": Maybe I did not read this when booking but the lower level has a room with a bed in it - no door and the open stair case acts as one of the walls. Not private enough for anyone in our group. Maybe kids would not mind. Also, on the lower level where the two wooden sleeping pods are shown in the pics there is a futon bed. Again maybe kids would not mind sleeping on a futon bed but this was not the case for our group. This room seems to be a converted porch and the temperature was much cooler in this room too - we were not bothered by this as we didn't use the room. "Tiny House": We ended up using the Tiny House as the 4th bedroom which worked out well. There is no WIFI in the tiny house FYI. "Front Door": There is an ancient lock box attached to the porch railing that we had trouble unlocking when we arrived. The care taker had to drive over to open the box for us. We were worried this would happen again over the course of our stay so we did not use the lock box after the first night. This became an issue as we had two vehicles and 4 adults coming and going using one key chain with single front door keys to the main house and tiny house. Suggested solution - upgrading the front entry doors of the main and tiny house to a coded type of entry hardware for multiple guests to be able to arrive, come and go with ease. Thank you for the stay in your beautiful PNW home, the lovely vaulted ceilings and wood work were enjoyed by all.
