    St. Helens on the Cowlitz River

    Riverfront cabin with kitchen and patio
    Adorable cabin on Cowlitz River. The St. Helens' Cabin at Cowlitz River Cabins Retreat is a 1036 square foot fully furnished, beautiful A-frame cabin representing the quintessential style of vacation homes. This A-frame is as affordable as it is adorable! The cabin’s exterior is made of hand scribed logs and cedar siding presenting a rustic charm, making it the perfect woodsy getaway. The interior has a spacious feel due to the open floor plan and the 22-ft vaulted ceiling, which soars above the great room. The room is bathed in sunlight by large windows with uniquely crafted valances. Several walls are beautifully painted a terra cotta two-toned color, which accentuates the vertical timber columns and horizontal logs seen throughout the room. Featured in the center of the great room, sits a gas stove, which burns with the natural look of real wood, and warms the entire first & second floors. The kitchen includes an island, which provides ample space for preparing meals and/or serves as an eating bar. A huge skylight brightens both the kitchen and dining areas. The romantic bedroom/loft overlooks the living room and features beautiful mission style furniture. When your day is done, the queen size bed envelops your body into a heavenly white goose down feather bed. On the main floor, there are 2 built-in cozy bunker beds (2 queens) with curtains that draw closed for privacy.Outside, a wide set of stairs that bring you up to the entrance features patios on each side. A private jetted hot tub sits on one side and on the other, a barbecue and picnic table to enjoy an outdoor meal. Cowlitz River Cabin Retreat serves equally well as a weekend cabin, summer retreat, or a ski chalet. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy its proximity to White Pass Recreation area and Gifford Pinchot National Forest, which offers many year round recreational opportunities. This area is not 'touristy' yet attracts thousands of visitors due to it's rugged beauty. If it's peace and tranquility that you’re seeking, you might curl up with a good book or take a stroll down to the river and sit and listen to the water! This woodland site is shared with numerous wildlife creatures such as elk, deer, raccoons, and wild geese, to name a few. In the early morning and evening hours, frogs from a nearby pond will occasionally serenade you. If you look overhead, you will often spot a pair of eagles soaring high above, but sometimes you have to take a closer look as what your seeing may instead be hang-gliders who have leaped off nearby dog-mountain, soaring like eagles and are a real treat to watch!

    4/5 Good

    Beautiful spot. Amazing places to visit close by.

    5/5 Excellent

    Great getaway!
    This cabin is a great little getaway, easily accessed from Portland or Seattle areas. We drove up from the Portland area, stopping at Ike Kinswa State Park along the way for fun in the river. Finding the cabin was easy with the provided directions. The front door is operated by an electronic lock which was really convenient. No worry about losing a key! The property has several rental structures but they are all very private. Lots of trees and bushes and walking paths. Private access to the Cowlitz River on a rocky beach. (Bring good shoes and water shoes!) Elk visited daily and lots of birds of prey and bats flying in the sky. This is a great spot to stay to explore Packwood and Randle and all the surrounding countryside. White Pass and the dry side are just minutes up the highway. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended!

    5/5 Excellent
