Come, relax and explore our Pacific Wonderland! Discover historic Astoria to the east and famed Ft Stevens State Park to the west; or just cuddle up with a cup of coffee and enjoy the parade of maritime traffic from a comfortable living room sofa!
Our 2-story home is situated at the mouth of the Columbia River, with historic Astoria to the east and Ft Stevens State Park just to the west. This is our family's frequent escape, well suited to maximize comfort, relaxation, and rejuvenation while having easy access to the scenic beauties of the North Coast, truly Pacific Wonderland
The cathedral ceiling living room has full views of the Columbia River estuary which spans four miles to Washington's Long Beach Peninsula. The Columbia River's narrow shipping channel is situated immediately in front of the house offering an never-ending parade of maritime traffic; enjoyable from the front yard Adirondack chairs or from the cozy comfort of the living room sofa.
A 2-story living room opens up to kitchen and dining room areas with panoramic views of the Columbia River. A 65" HD SmartTV sits above a gas fireplace and flanks the large living room window. Entertainment options include Home Theater with HD satellite TV including premium channels, Wi-Fi internet, Sony Blu-ray DVD with Netflix, and AirPlay to wirelessly stream your music.
A well-stocked kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances and cooking implements, makes staying in and cooking a real pleasure. A powder room is conveniently situated off the main living room area.
Upstairs are three tastefully decorated bedrooms each with a comfortable queen bed and TV. Master bedroom en suite has a walk in closet, comfortable lounge chair and commanding views. In addition to the three bedrooms, there is a double fold-out bed with memory foam in the living room's sectional sofa.
The home is stocked with some of our favorite books & movies, feel free to enjoy while relaxing; or planning day trips up and down the coast.
In the back of the house is a fenced in yard, with a propane grill and umbrellaed table & seating on the back deck. In the front yard are four Adirondack chairs surrounding an open fire pit.
We'd love to welcome you to our home to relax and explore our Pacific Wonderland.
Cheers, Ron and Shannon
2 bikes (with helmets & shared lock) are available for adventures, well-suited for exploring Ft. Stevens State Park.
Our home is situated on the Columbia River Estuary. There is no immediate beach access in front of the house. The shoreline is defined by bouldered riprap, and even at low tide with beach exposed, accessing the river from the bank is not advised. On the other hand, Ft Stevens State Park boasts having the most beach front of any US State Park and is a little more than a mile from the house. We also enjoy using a small public beach we call "dog beach" just east of Hammond Marina, a few minutes walk from the house, just north of St Francis De Sales Mission.
Guests are asked to stay gently in our family vacation home with respect for the space, contents and our neighbors. No smoking indoors. Please appropriately manage and clean up after younger guests and pets.
