We rented this house three weeks last summer. We chose Stevenson as it is a great base for a Gorge vacation. Everything was as advertised--this place will not disappoint. The home is very clean and high standing, with open space and vaulted ceilings, great privacy, and magnificent views of the water and Columbia gorge scenery. Few places in the Gorge are right on the water with private beach, yet pretty much in town. We loved being able to walk to the cafes and breweries for a dinner or lunch out, or just stay at home to enjoy the deck, and outside waterfront living. We windsurfed right out of the house, or drove a few minutes to the Hatchery or Doug's. On hot "nuking" days when we had sailed East, it was so nice to come home to Stevenson and enjoy a cooler evening and quiet winds, with a sip of wine on the patio. We will definitely come back.
My family (2 adults and 3 teens) stayed here for 12 days with ample space for all. The home has views of the Columbia River and Bridge of the Gods that will knock your socks off. If you are a kite surfer or wind surfer this is a wonderful place to be. If not, the hiking trails will keep you busy. The location is in the center of hundreds of hikes (with waterfalls) in Oregon and Washington. There are mineral baths nearby to relax your muscles after a long day of hiking. Everything is at your fingertips here. The town has great restaurants and breweries and cafe's just a block or two away. The grocery store just a few blocks away had everything we needed as well. The home is modern, clean, very well stocked, and wonderfully maintained. Many backyard spaces to watch the activity on the river, dine outdoors, or just practice some yoga. Around the house are well placed lavender bushes, rosemary bushes and other beautiful plants, one feels compelled to be outdoors and is rewarded with the fragrances of the plants and trees around the home. While we were there, my son even befriended a family of ducks that he fed in the evenings after he collected many beautiful pieces of sea glass on the beach that is on the property. The owners are helpful, attentive, but not intrusive. It was very easy to book this home and the security deposit was refunded quickly after our stay. This is a storybook place. We will return and recommend this home to others.
Our group of 7 stayed in this lovely Stevenson river house for 3 nights over labor day weekend. It is one of only a few properties on the water which is surprisingly rare for the area. We ended up loving the smaller town and the 20 min drive into Hood river was beautiful. Lots of hiking, water sports, wine tasting etc.. near by and most importantly, beautiful river and mountain views from the house. We would definitely go back.
My husband is a wind surfing enthusiast so the Columbia gorge is a great place for us to vacation. He enjoys the windsurfing and we all enjoy the many other activities available in the area. The house is lovely, fresh and clean with an absolutely beautiful view. It provides a perfect spot to relax in the sun and read a book with direct access to the water for swimming. The house is equipped with every amenity we could want. Our family has been there twice with our three teenage children and we would be happy to return again.
We'd highly recommend this house for anyone looking to enjoy the natural beauty of the Gorge with family or friends. The location is very private with direct access to the Columbia River, as well as a 2 minute walk to Bob's Beach park (major windsurfing launch spot). The house configuration was perfect for multiple families and all of the amenities were in great shape. The multiple decks gave amazing views but were also sheltered from the strong Gorge winds. We walked into Stevenson to check out brew pubs, ice cream store and other small town sites...very relaxing place. Owners of the house were incredibly responsive and professional!
